We stayed here a few years back for orientation (and a great introductory rate), and again a few months ago for graduation (high room rate this time -- go figure, all the hotels in the area sell out). This hotel is is in a great location for visiting the University of Michign. Our stay for graduation went very smoothly. Easy... More

We recently stayed here for UofM orientation. Breakfast/location/decor was all fine - nothing special but adequate. Bottom line is I went home with a leg covered in bites. I let the front desk know about this and received minimal response. I would never stay here again or recommend this hotel. The reason being the actual fleas as well as the... More

Dirty, expensive, cramped, dated. These are just a few of the words I could use to describe my experience with the Kensington Court. Don't let the fancy name fool you. I reserved a room here with the orientation discount. Based on the photos I thought it was nice and the price was good. Foolish me, I didn't check trip advisor... More

I stayed here for three nights at an incredible rate during University of Michigan parent orientation. Located with numerous other hotels just off I-94 - convenient to UM and to highway access to Detroit, Kensington Court strives to be more than just a three star hotel and, at times, they succeed. Rooms are average. The TV is a real pain... More

Recently stayed for the weekend for a wedding. Room was very spacious. Hallways are a little "Shining-esque" they seem to go on and on forever and got lost a few times. Perfect location for nearby UofM, restaurants, and highway.

convenient location -University Michigan just a short drive. Room was smaller than expected for the price, so were the beds. The toilet kept running, which they couldn't or didn't fix. It was a busy weekend, so maybe they didn't have time to fix it. The heat/ cool system is kind of screwy--it was a cold weekend, so a seperate switch... More

This hotel is one of the best locations when attending a graduation at the University of Michigan. A speedy check-in, friendly staff and on the morning of the graduation, they even provided a "grab bag" breakfast ($6.00 extra charge) to take to the stadium. The highway to return to Detroit Airport is literally two minutes from the hotel. Again, Great... More

I stayed for two nights at the Kensington Court Hotel. The check-in staff are helpful and efficient. As I had a car, the hotel was quite convenient. Easy access from the freeway, across the street from a huge shopping center, and only 10' drive from the University and downtown. The location is excellent for someone with a car. The room... More
