We stayed at this hotel during a hockey camp at the nearby Arctic Coliseum. The proximity to the rink are a plus - it is literally a 2 minute drive to the rink. Unfortunately, Real Madrid was in town to play Manchester United in Ann Arbor, so hotel prices were through the roof - more than 200 dollars a night... More

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Chelsea to celebrate my daughter's birthday. I work for a different local hotel but chose this specific hotel b/c it is in my hometown AND because they advertised having a "kidsuite". Upon checking in, I was questioned extensively by the front desk manager when he saw that I was holding a birthday... More

Recently completed a 12 day stay and can't say enough good things.

This is a decently renovated hotel with a nice breakfast and a nice pool. The rooms are pretty standard. Nothing special. The location was convenient for our trip, but there isn't much around other than a few fast food restaurants and a gas station.

This is a great place to stay near ann Arbor during graduation week. The place is clean and well maintained. It is close to the highway. About 20 min away from AA. The breakfast is not great but not bad. There is a good selection of juice. Hard boiled eggs. Cinnamon rolls etc.

Reserved a room with 2 Queens. When checking in, was offered a "free upgrade" because it was my first time staying there. Great. We carried all our bags up to that "upgraded" room, which was nothing but a room with a king-sized bed, which we didn't want. Carried all our bags back down and we were given our original room....

I really enjoyed my 2 day stay here! Staff is laid back, accommodating and friendly. Breakfast was an added bonus. My room was clean and comfortable. Free coffee available and chocolate chip cookies at night was a nice treat to come back to. Pool looked nice. Location was convenient to Dexter and Ann Arbor too.
