My husband and I just stayed at My Friends Inn on August 27, 2016. I travel a lot for work and I must say this place was amazing and one of the best I have stayed. Michelle was so nice and helpful upon check in and also gave us lots of tips on what not to miss on the island.... More

The rooms are clean, with great décor, lay-out and amenities. They have different sizes and lay-outs, but all are excellent. I highly recommend this Inn to anyone staying on the Island. I will definitely be back!

The owners are so welcoming and friendly. We brought our own portable propane bbq but they gave us full use of theirs. They asked us upon check in what we were doing and gave us recommendations of places to see and eat based upon our plans. Rooms are comfortable and clean with cable tv, electric fireplace and air conditioner. If... More

We just spent six days at My Friends Inn and couldn't have been happier. Every convenience supplied, microwave, kettle, coffee maker (with tea and coffee), iron and board and hairdryer. Our room was spotless with great linens and comfy beds. A barbeque, picnic table and pretty sitting area is available for guests to relax, and the best ever rocking chairs... More

My husband and I booked this small motel for one night as we wanted to visit Manitoulin Island on one leg of a road trip. Upon our arrival, we found the owner very pleasant to deal with. Our room, with 1 king bed was newly renovated, but unfortunately, just starting to show some wear & tear. Having said that, the... More

We arrived later than planned due to the ferry being late. The woman that checked us in could not have been kinder. She thought the ferry was going to be late!! Very professional and friendly reception. Check in was a breeze. We parked our bike on the paved parking area in front of our room. Very nice touch for us... More

The owner here does a terrific job with this place. The rooms are clean and modern for this price range. Only small quibbles here: there are a few spots around the property where the stone facade has come off of the out-buildings. These details, those small, eventually start to hurt the overall impression. Running the sink affects the shower temperature.... More

If you're staying on Manitoulin Island, stay here! The motel is recently refurbished, extremely clean, and nicely furnished. Very comfortable. It's conveniently located a few kilometers from the ferry from Tobermory. In fact, we were looking for a visitor information place and were trying to follow the signs, and ended up here instead. We were already booked, but it was... More
