We were here for a funeral in Topinabee and this was the perfect place to stay. It was close to the church and cemetery. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the hot tub. The breakfast was okay--they had Belgium waffles, eggs, but no sausage, toast, bagels, biscuits (and crockpot with biscuit gravy), English muffins and blueberry muffins,... More

Hometown Inn is a nice place to stop for the night. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Our first room's a/c stopped 10 minutes after arriving and they were able to find us another room right away. The breakfast was okay. There was not much variety; limited protein source (just "military" eggs), no fresh fruit or yogurt. My husband... More

Four of us in two queen room and it was very comfortable. Not a very busy area but the convenience of being just of 75 made it an easy choice for us. Good breakfast and clean hotel. The receptionist was very welcoming and helpful. Reservation process was easy as we called on our way up north.

If you ask for a towel, the service here will be rude and give you an old ripped rag as a towel. It's not a nice fresh place you would want to stay. The service got worse from our first visit, which was just as terrible. We've gotten bloody sheets each time we stay.

Not impressed, didn't feel like a clean place and after getting home and noticing bites on family members I regret the stay. (And ended up being a very expensive say).....Pool area got very crowded when locals can pay and come use the pool even when hotel booked to capacity.

This hotel is NOT what it used to be, that's for sure. With a rude, scamming, dishonest manager, I never got passed the front desk this time. Previously, the room we had was dirty, but I thought we'd give it another try this year. Bad choice on our part. DO NOT RECOMMEND!!

Hometown inn ... Great check-in with no reservations. Very nice room. Enjoyed it. Mgt helpful about restaurants. Their indoor pool looked inviting, but we didn't test it out. Weather was wet & getting foggy; we were happy to find this place. Indian River is off I-75 between Gaylord & Mackinaw City---both of which have your higher-priced lodgings. This place is... More

We had two rooms reserved, and asked that they be near each other. Upon arrival, one of the rooms the carpet was all wet. The couple that stayed in that room did get a new room, once they complained, but now the two rooms were not near each other. The quality of the other room was extremely poor. There was... More
