If clean, comfortable and affordable are what you are looking for, this is the place for you. We always stay here when we visit the Silver Lake/Hart area. The owners/operators live on property make every effort to make your stay a happy one.

If you are choosing the best hotel in the area, choose this one! It is spotless and has nice rooms with a recliner, too. You can tell that the owners take pride in their business. They were very friendly and helpful. If you don't need a pool or breakfast, this is the place to stay!

We are so pleased to receive guest reviews like this ! It energizes us and our staff to continue hard work to maintain the cleanliness and freshness of our motel. SADLY, we had a couple in this week on a 'charity gift certificate' who made our house keeping staff most discouraged and they felt disrepected. The couple dropped food all...

4 or 5 annual visits as of 2016. High quality/value still maintained. Excellent condition, cleanliness, value and hospitality. Close to Silver Lake and Dunes. Oh, and a pretty good breakfast right next door. American Host Inn in Hart, Mi is independently owned and and exemplifies best practices in our opinion. Martha & Dave F. South Carolina

We arrived late evening and we were very exhausted after a long drive. The owners were helpful and straightforward with their rules at the inn. I was surprised how much they did care about keeping their inn quiet and they were really about protecting their guests' good night sleep. I am a light sleeper and have always trouble in hotels...

I had never been to Hart, MI before and was surprised and the limited options for lodging but pleasantly surprised with my decision to stay here. When I called to make the reservation, I spoke with the owner who was incredibly kind and helpful. When I found out that my flight was delayed and I would be getting in very...

Very clean and quiet room, we stayed on a Monday night. I prefer a soft bed, my husband likes then a little firm, we both slept well. Only thing we didn't like was the room was very damp, everything felt clammy. Not sure if that was due to the extremely hot weather at the time or what. Probably would stay...

These were wonderful and gracious guests ! And yes, her thought about the humid and hot weather causing some dampness was right on target. Normally, after each guest departs, we open windows to air out the room and do our cleaning during this time. With eight weeks of hot, humid weather we simply could rely only on the room A/C...

The owners were very pleasant and accommodating. The room was very clean and it included a large coffee pot and numerous cable channels. The hotel was also located near a large walking path and a restaurant at the other side of the parking lot.
