This place is great. Comfortable bed, super clean and quiet. The owners are very nice and very helpful in providing information about what to see and where to eat etc. The location is very handy for exploring the island. I wish we could have stayed another night.

Spent two nights in a king room. Clean and comfy. Owners have done a great job in updating this motel and went out of their way to see we enjoyed our stay on Manitoulin Island. We recommend My Friends Inn with confidence.

Super clean, very friendly couple... what else can you ask for. The place was really nice, everything you need was there. Lots of tips from Michelle where to go and what to do... they even invited us for a "bonfire"! From Aug. 31'16 to Sept. 02'16... awesome stay, awesome experience! This place is highly recommended!

We drove the island in the evening and the scenery was terrific. Rock cuts are spectacular..unique color. Worth the trip just for the drive.

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
