The Clinton Inn is located in the Village of Clinton, Michigan just 20 miles west of Ann Arbor. The Clinton Inn is a distinct and recognizable landmark located in the downtown Clinton business district, which is recognized by the National Register of Historic Places. It is located on the historic US 12, the main route for business and transportation between Chicago and Detroit in the early 1900’s. Clinton was established in 1829 by early settlers from From New York state, and named after their state governor, Dewitt Clinton. The current site of the Clinton Inn was first settled by Alpheius Kies, who built a small log house. After several changes in ownership, Alonzo Clark tore down the house and built the present 3-story brick hotel and officially opened it on Thanksgiving Day in 1901.
The hotel has three stories; the first floor features the full service restaurant, the Clinton Coffeehouse, and private event venue. The second floor is all guest rooms while the third has served as apartments since the 1980’s.
The hotel was purchased by the Huffaker Family in May 2019. The hotel was in a state of disrepair at the time of purchase, and numerous improvements have been made. Currently 4 rooms are available for nightly rentals, and larger renovations are planned to bring the hotel back to it’s glory days.
