“Fun pool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

We chose the AmericInn in Wetmore (outside of Munising) for its pool and location near the cabin where my sister-in-law was staying. The pool area is great for kids and families. There is a large waterslide for older kids, which is open for 2 hours in the morning and 2 in the afternoon. There is a small waterslide for younger children that's always open.

The pool doesn't get very deep, and one end of it is inclined so you can wade right in. The depth is 18 inches near the small slide, so it's ideal for small children. My daughter loved it there.

Our room had one king and a rollaway. It was an ADA room, which they may have given us to make room for the rollaway bed. We set the bed up in the wider-than-usual entryway to the room; fitting it in elsewhere probably would have meant moving the king-sized bed.

Looking at my credit card statement, it seemed like we were charged more than our reservation said it would cost. I had misplaced my receipt, so I called the hotel. They weren't able to e-mail me a copy of it, but they did send me one via snail mail. Everything was fine--I just had forgotten about the charge for the rollaway.

Breakfast: The complimentary breakfast had the usual continental options plus waffles and biscuits and gravy. They also had flavored syrups for coffee, which was fun. There was only 2% milk, though.
Bathroom: because this was an ADA room, it had a roll-in shower stall and a showerhead with a detachable handle.
Blow dryer: yes
Elevator: yes
Internet: free wifi. We didn't experience any problems with it.
Nearest playground: not sure
Recommend to friends with young children: definitely
Recommend to childless friends: yes, if they don't mind the pool being more like a water park than a place to swim laps

My husband's work schedule changed unexpectedly and we were unable to travel. Not only did we miss out on our anniversary weekend. Americinn kept our money and refused to refund our money, even with a 5 day cancellation notice.

First of all, I'm not a fan of hotels. I'm a very light sleeper, and my wife is a neat freak. But this hotel was very clean, and surprisingly quite. The staff was friendly and helpful as well. We didn't spend much time there, but the time that was spent there was pleasant.

They overbooked, so gave us a King Suite for the price of a smaller room - no complaints there!
Little restrictive on their rules (short pool hours), and they make a big deal out of their 100-foot water slide. Maybe a big deal in that area, but 100 feet seem to really be pushing-it.
The desk staff (and breakfast staff) weren't the friendliest folks you'd ever meet.
The location is maybe 10-minutes away from all the action (I think it's the last hotel as you leave the area).

Americinn in Wetmore, MI is a short drive to Munising. It is a very laid back area with very friendly, helpful people. We chose the Americinn over the new Holiday Inn which is right on Lake Superior because it was quite a bit cheaper. It was a good choice. The room was a good size, clean and had soft towels, but extra amenities were poor quality. The hotel lobby was very nice with a good size business center. Check-in was okay. Our first room was on the 3rd floor next to the noiciest ice machine I've ever heard. We were moved to the 2nd floor which was very quiet. It was a good thing we moved down a floor because the elevator broke down the next day. The pool was very nice especially if you have kids. The slides and hot tub were fun. The breakfast area was adequate but the quality of the food was very mediocre. Check-out was a problem. It took longer than necessary because they couldn't find our receipt information. Considering the other hotels in the area, you would be okay staying here.

Thank you for posting a review. I believe you are looking to post about the AmericInn in Munising, MI location and somehow it was posted to the AmericInn Traverse City, MI location. We would love to however welcome you to the Traverse City location and show you how great AmericInn is and how our entire staff in Traverse City works so hard to make everyone’s stay memorable. Each AmericInn is independently owned and operated under a franchise agreement by AmericInn. We apologize you had some concerns regarding your stay at another AmericInn but glad you felt overall it was a good hotel.

Ok, here's the scoop very briefly:
- rooms are nice and they are clean
- service is good
- location is convenient to Pictured Rocks and downtown Munising
- continental breakfast is about the norm, but late risers may find sparse pickings
- "water park" consists of two slides: one small frog mouth in a shallow pool for the little tots and one larger slide for those 48 inches and taller. If you are under 48" forget it. Even if you have a life jacket - they do not allow them on the slide. If you are tall enough then you can get a certificate if you go down the slide 52 times. My oldest loved it but was fixated on nothing but getting to 52 for the first two days. Also worth mentioning is the fact that they close the waterside between 10am and 4 pm and whenever thunderstorms are near.

Overall it was a nice place to stay, but would have appreciated knowing the limitations of the pool area as we stayed there so there would be something to do if it rained.

This was our first time at an AmericInn and were very happy with our experience there. It was a newer hotel and very clean. I liked the north woods/ light house decor. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool was clean and our son enjoyed the pool and water slide. We will definitely stop again when in the area.
