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

We were a group of five on a motorcycle tour around Lake Superior from Oakville/Burlington/Hamilton and this was our first stop for two nights. So glad we booked this place. The rooms are great , very clean and well kept. We had a slight rain the... 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

As a motorcyclist, you look for these older 50's or 60's vintage motor hotels to park your bike after a long day's ride. The "My Friends Inn" in Manitowaning is the perfect place for riders. This hotel is of old vintage, but has obviously been completely renovated very recently. I was greeted by Dawn at the hotel who quickly showed... More

This is a our second stay at this recently renovated 8-unit motel and, personally, I would stay no where else on the island. We were greeted with a hug which made us feel like old friends. This is not a luxury or a boutique motel - this is a comfortable home away from home. Rooms are clean with comfortable beds,... More

My girlfriend and I spent the night on the island and was lucky enough to have stayed here. The room was immaculate and very comforting. The owner was extremely courteous making sure we had everything we needed to feel right at home. If you're visiting Manitoulin, this is where you'd want to stay overnight!

My boyfriend and I did a road trip from Toronto to Tobermory, and then took the ferry over to Manitoulin Island. We had booked our room at My Friends Inn in Manitouwaning, I had no idea what to expect as I had never even visited Manitoulin Island before. Our stay at My friends Inn was absolutely delightful and staying their... More

We stayed two nights while touring the island on Motorcycle. Picked largely on high TripAdvisor ratings. Did not disappoint. Everything was spotless and the couple that runs it were both super friendly. One downside is that I had read great reviews on the spirit of manitoulin restaurant within walking distance of the hotel but it had closed. Not the fault... More
