My husband and I stayed at this hotel which was in a convenient location while having tree-work done at our cottage on Lake Michigan. The room was very clean and quiet with a refrigerator and microwave. The hosts were very nice and answered our questions and gave us some tips. Not luxurious but clean and nice.

Gracious hosts. Convenient location. Excellent value. Quite clean and everything in working order. Along with visit to Silver Lake and Dunes have a breakfast in Mears(across from Post Office/forgot name but only breakfast in Mears). Have advance reservations and is little pricey on weekends during summer and Fri. & Sat required. Quess that would be pretty normal everywhere for that...

Whenever we stay at the American Host Inn we feel very safe and welcome. The grounds are immaculate and the parking lot is well lit. The room is always perfectly clean. The owners are so hospitable, helpful, and generous. This kindness and warmth can be felt even when you call to make your reservation. The family- friendly quiet time is...

Dan and Dar are kind of 'Mom and Pop' type people. They make you feel like family. They had the cheapest rate around and even better that they threw in free Mac Woods Dune ride tix. The room was much larger than equivelants we've stayed in (at Marriott in big cities) and EXCEPTIONALLY clean (inside and on the grounds), flat...

The room was fairly large, enough space to easily fit 6 people comfortably, yet the owner is incredibly strict about having only four people in one room, claiming the extra person is "hard on the room". He broke his own policy and allowed me to stay as a fifth person (which I admire), so I gave him a 20 for...

Our rooms with two queen sized beds can acomodate four adults and our bathrooms come with towel, etc. for four adults. Our A/C works well for four adults. Our nice, clean walls normally stay that way without dents or bag luggage gouges with four adults. It was foolish of me to accept the sad story that one extra adult came...

The hotel was very clean. But was disappointed in the owner. He came to the room at 8:55am on our day of departure, pounding on our door to tell us to make sure to return the key before we left. We were away for our anniversary, without our kids so we could rest and catch up on our sleep. Everybody...

We were in town for a 4th of July family get together. The house in town we were supposed to stay at ended up being full. Dar came to the rescue on this busy weekend to find us a room for 3 nights! Dar and Don and their entire staff treat everyone like family! And you couldn't ask for better...

Very clean! Family owned & they are super friendly. Rooms were just what you need. Nothing fancy but clean! The linens and towels smelled like fabric softner. Love it!
