“Mio's best place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

This motel is nicely situated close to the AuSable River and downtown Mio. The rooms are standard, but well kept and clean. Pool & spa are very nice. Morning coffee, juice and donuts are complimentary. Staff is most friendly and helpful. Owners are long-time Mio area residents and truly care about your accomodations and stay.

Room Tip: 1st floor advised if climbing a problem, as no elevator, but for most this is not a problem.

We enjoyed our three day stay at this property. It was comfortable and clean, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The only caveat is that the hotel blurb says breakfast included. That's true only if you enjoy bite-size muffins and pre-packaged grocery store do-nuts with your coffee. But, a true breakfast is available at several near-by restaurants, as well as McDonalds.

We just got back from spending two nights at the AuSable Valley Inn. I have never stayed in a hotel that was so extremely clean, everything was virtually spotless. We had to come to MIo to visit family and unfortunately it rained much of the time, however, the Inn was very accommodating to allow family to come and visit and enjoy the amenities. The pool and fire pit were perfect. A special thanks to Sue on the night shift, she was very sweet and helpful!

Nice rooms, clean, great location. The indoor pool and hot tub were lifesavers for a rainy weekend and cold tube trip! Breakfast was just fine. Nice fire pit and grill as well as deck over looking the valley. Ice for a dollar a bag, cant beat that. Only downside is the pool rules werent enforced across the board. Already booked for next year!

I can't say enough good things about our stay here. The people are wonderful, very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean and the view from the front door is beautiful. A cup of coffee in the morning sitting in a chair overlooking the valley is so relaxing and peaceful, just what you need to start your day off right. We went to the U.P. for a night, then back to the Ausable Inn for another night. Small town with big personality.

We stayed at the AuSable Valley Inn for a two night get away and our very own Dream Cruise down the AuSable river. These rooms were great, good size, clean and quiet. The owners were very friendly and accommodating and gave us recommendations for dining that didn't let us down. Breakfast consisted of coffee, tea, juice, muffins and donuts. They have wireless internet if you take your laptop along, if not they have a computer for guest use in the lobby. Features include and indoor pool and hot tub, a patio/deck with a great view of the river valley, a campfire pit and a barbeque grill along with a microwave, refrigerator and cable tv in your room.
I think they have 28 rooms, we rented 3 rooms and hope to expand our group and need 6 rooms next year, as word spreads I would recommend that you make your reservations early.
We were close to Hinchman Acres Canoe Livery, Fairview Hills (9 hole) golf course, and had a fantastic dinner at O'Briens Dinner Table Restaurant.....excellent food!!
We crammed as much as we could into our little get away and after 5 hours and 22 miles on the river the hot tub was great for our aching bodies.
Like I said "I am already looking forward to next year." This is THE place to stay.
