Where to Stay Near the Birch Run Premium Outlets

Our top pick: The cool thing about the Country Inn and Suites in Birch Run is that it is so close to the Birch Run Outlets that you can simply walk there! You don't even have to cross a busy street! It's walking distance to Tony's I-75 restaurant too! Plus it's so quaint and nicely appointed. 

The Hampton Inn in Birch Run is also a great choice as it is centrally located and well appointed. We like their wide variety of room options to fit your needs.

Or, the Holiday Inn Express in Birch Run is very easy to get to off Main Street and is close to all the action: Restaurants, events, the outlet mall and the Birch Run Speedway.  It has a great pool, snack shop and breakfast in the morning.

Here are more choices of Birch Run hotels plus reviews on TripAdvisor.
