Nice, clean property not too far from town. They have some themed rooms which include a wine & cheese happy hour from 6:00-7:00. The rooms are a little small but adequate. The large pool was heated to 88 degrees which was fantastic; the pool is only open from noon - 9:00 p.m. Check-out from the hotel is 10:30 a.m. The... More

We stayed for 2 days and were completely satisfied with our stay. We had a king themed room and a queen themed room for our other traveler. Everything was clean and we enjoyed our stay. Beds were comfy with plenty of pillows and blankets. Lighting was good as well as the AC. The bathrooms are small with the sinks on... More

So many great things to say about American Botique Inn so to start the motel is just a small family owned establishment. The owners and staff are so accommodating. The head house... More

Theme room well decorated, clean but a little small. Bathroom small but sink is on the outside, which was nice. Enjoyed being across the street from the lake shore. Nice pool, nice grounds. Breakfast could be better.

The Inn was amazingly clean, from the blinds to the bathroom. There were extra towels in the room always a plus for me. The room was cutely decorated, floral curtains and matching bedspread. Some of the rooms had names not numbers-ours was "grand hotel". The breakfast was just OK, but the breakfast room was spotless. The outdoor pool area was... More

Recently spent two nights while visiting the area. Rooms had a movie theme, mine was "Beach Party" with a Frankie & Annette poster, seashell bed spread, and a lighted six foot artificial palm tree. Love the tree. Special perk was being able to reserve breakfast delivered to the room, with choices of bagels, muffins, pastry, juice, and coffee. Arrived via... More

Seasonal hotel with rooms that a clean and well maintained. Great value in an ex Ellen location walking distance to tourist areas. Breakfast could be better but it's what you would expect at that price.

Very clean rooms, clean heated outdoor pool, pretty flowers everywhere, quiet. Glad we picked here over a other chain hotel and for way less money! Location is still close enough to the main part of town. Great view of the Mackinac bridge at night. Can walk across to the park for an even better view.

This is a charming inn! If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing, atmosphere, then American Boutique Inn is for you! Each room is named after a movie, and is then decorated to fit the movies style. We stayed in "The Secret Garden" room, which was decorated to look like you entered into The Secret Garden itself. The owners have... More
