I was skeptical at first as I have never heard of this inn. Thinking we will try it and see how it is. WOW this place is amazing. It knocked my socks off............ The staff was amazing. The rooms were new and clean. There was ample parking for our truck and trailer. Very Friendly and comfortable. Also to top it...

Creepy owners. Freaks about kids dropping bread in the parking lot, had hair in the bed, and worst of all they threw my favorite hat away. I asked why they would through it away, and the response was "if it's your favorite hat then you wouldn't have left it". Who says something like that that owns an establishment. I will...

Not a great visit for either the guests nor us as owners. It happens. First, one of their three little children dropped a partially eaten sandwich on the parking lot. When I asked them to be very careful in our nice rooms, Mom....did not like that. I understand. From then on it was finding fault with our room. Payback. They...

I never tire of this well maintained and friendly motel . I visit several times a year for a quiet relaxing get away and always have a pleasant stay. Rooms are clean, comfortable, and the linens smell so good.

Went back to one of our favorite spots over the Memorial Day weekend. We were just as pleased as the other times we have stayed! It is easily the cleanest motel we have ever stayed in - both in the U.S. and around the world. Not fancy shmancy - just clean, friendly, comfortable and in a great area of fun...

I spent 3 nights and 4 days at the American Host Inn over Memorial Day Weekend. I highly recommend this hotel in every aspect. Great central location to Silver Lake, Pentwater and Ludington. The cleanliness is superior to none. The owners were extremely helpful in recommendations for things to do, meals, beaches, etc. It was quiet and offers an outside...

I drove 5.5 hours to stay here and go to the dunes. My room was spotless. The owners made me feel like I was home. I used to spend all week in a hotel, this was the best experience ever. Period! I will definitely use this hotel again when going to the Silver Lake Dunes. To the point that I...

We spent a week in this wonderful hotel. The rooms are spacious, immaculately clean. The staff made us feel right at home. While sitting in the lobby reading one morning, the housekeeping ladies walked in the door and immediately said hello to me. Customer service is over the top. I loved the "QUIET TIME" Everyone respected each other. We never...

The ABSOLUTE cleanest place we stayed in during our seven day trip. Very comfy bed and my husband really liked the recliner, a nice touch for a room. The owners were terrific in that they were friendly, helpful and accommodating with suggestions on where to eat. After a restful night, we had a good breakfast at "That Place", the restaurant...
