My Friends Inn Manitoulin
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Manitowaning
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 August 2013

We were on Manitoulin Island for three days and had a fantastic experience at My Friends Inn.

The rooms are newly refurbished, beautifully clean and all the little details are taken care of. Very comfortable beds and, as every other reviewer seems to have said, owned and managed by excellent hosts in Maureen and Bob. We stayed in a number of motels during our two weeks in Canada, and My Friends was easily the best.

Would thoroughly recommend and is fully deserving of its top rating.

Try and take in the Assiginack Museum while you're in Manitowaning. Charming and informative.

Spotless, every detail considered (even decaff for the Tassimo!). Friendly hosts and kitty. Hosts warm, informative, enthusiastic about their community. Manitowaning is small but historically interesting. Don't miss wandering around in the tiny downtown (walking map available from hotel).

We were greeted by Maureen. She helped us find a good meal on a Sunday night. She also helped us find our way around this peaceful island. Then Mini (the cat) showed us to our room. The room was spacious and clean.The bed was comfortable. The room had AC, a microwave and mini fridge, along with a trendy fireplace/heater. Coffee was available, too. We relaxed in our room after a long day of hiking. We used the free WiFi to plan our hikes. Just wish we could have stayed longer!

We landed there by chance on hoping they had a room at 5pm, after driving on the island all day. It was our lucky day, a cancellation gave us room #1. They gave us the key to check it out......the room was nothing other than super super clean , very roomy, tassimo coffee maker, wifi, electronic fireplace on the wall, and 2 super comfy chairs ride outside your door only for 96.00 taxes in. If u plan to travel to Manitoulin and do this one side I would advise u to book ahead here for a good 2 night stay and travel around. Great couple as hosts! Soo friendly and laid back as much of the island. Thanks again "My Friends Inn" we hope to return!

Room Tip: The rooms are all facing one way. Perfect spot anywhere. Check out the Muskey restaurant in town. Ve...

This is a clean, comfortable, well cared for motel. The owners Bob and Maureen couldn't be nicer. Do not hesitate to stay here. The island has very little to offer in the way of accommodations and this Inn is about the best on the island. Bottom line.. the king bed we had was very comfortable, the linens were high end, the chairs on the porch were comfortable not those awful plastic things, and the bathroom was clean. Can't ask for more than that in this out of the way place.

Room Tip: King bed room is next to the office so you had only one neighbor.

We stayed at this small motel in June. Very friendly family business. Small rooms with everything you need even fireplaces. Not for the extended stay, but great for a night or two. Read the reviews online. They were very accurate. Very clean and comfortable. Would love to stay again if we get back that way.
