Stayed one night recently for business. Check in was fast and easy thanks to the morning gentleman. Our room was ready when we arrived at 11:00am which was a big plus. Received second floor room as requested. Room was nice, king bed was comfortable. TV had plenty of channels. Great continental breakfast for business run. Will be back in June.

Excellent staff - clean hotel, beautiful decor, very comfortable beds- great buy ! Highly recommend if you are traveling through Detroit (right off I75) great location. Plenty of restaurants nearby. The manager was extremely helpful and went out of his way to make sure our needs were met. Would definitely recommend this place.

I've stayed on this property a handful of times. Staff was especially helpful and friendly, and went out of their way to meet our needs. Rooms were clean and furnished nicely. Good value for the price.

I'm stunned by other reviews, I had a pleasing stay. No complaints. And really close to all the downtown spots. This was by far a cheaper place to stay than most places I googled. Everyone was friendly & the diner next door had awesome food.

As we arrived at the inn 3 gunshots were heard very close and then the ambulance and the police drove by. The front lobby had a strange smell when you went in. Staff was friendly. Room was small. Plastic bag over the smoke detector. There was no bath tub. Just a walk in shower. Tap on bathroom sink would lift... More

Last minute tickets to the Paul McCartney Concert and a scramble to find an available hotel room, ended up with finding the only availability in the city was here. The property was old and run down. Room was dated, but not filthy. Bathroom had poor lighting and moldy shower. However, the gal at check-in was pleasant and helpful. And, yes,... More

Turned over the mattress and sure enough there they were- bed bugs in the mattress seems (I have video and photo proof as well). Called the manager in and he looked at my bites and the bugs and said... More

The best thing you can say is the room was clean and the shower works and the desk people were pleasant. The rooms are very small. They have not been updated in decades. The wall plug was only 2 prong. The only place I could plug in my computer was in the bathroom. No remote for the TV - I... More

My stay was TERRIBLE with a capital T. I was suppose to stay for a week but I got out of there and booked somewhere else. I didn't not get the room I reserved, I believe the staff went through my bags and they broke my tablet. When I notified the manager of everything, he stated that he staff would... More
