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

Stayed there during a roadtrip across America. Wanted something to low budget close to downtown Detroit. Walking distance to Greektown, Downtown and River walk! Perfect! The young lady that checked us in where very friendly and helpful. It´s a nonsmoking hotel, but somebody didn´t obey that rule in the first room. We did get another :). Smelled good and looked...

This hotel does its best to be the worst. Although my reservation on Booking.com was confirmed for 4 nights with breakfast, the receptionist told me she has only one night confirmed!!. At the morning I went to have breakfast to find out that simply "Sorry, We don't have breakfast, only coffee!!!!!!". The room has no place to put your clothes... More

We needed a place to stay after the concert. We got a great deal but once we got into the room it smelled like weed and had a trash bag over the smoke detector. We told the front desk and he said they would take care of it. We got back from our concert hoping it was taken care of... More

Booked for two nights, cancelled the second night first thing the first morning. No amenities offered on the website in actual room. No mini-fridge, coffee maker, flat screen tv, or blowdryer. Had I known, I would have never booked. The room wasn't hardly clean and the housekeeper left the nasty rags for us to deal with. Finally got back to... More

I made reservations a month and a half prior to our stay. I asked for connecting rooms, with a couch in one. I was guaranteed my request. Upon arrival, my request was not met. The place was a dive. A filthy, nasty, horrible dive. I do not recommended this place. This is a scary, bug filled, bad hotel. I'd sleep... More

I'm not rating the motel, which I haven't stayed at in 20 years and now I agree looks really ruff, but I ate at their clique diner for old time sakes and the food was as good as ever, very good diner food, especially the "big clique" three item breakfast.

This place was terrible. Would never stay there again. Seen cleaner places in a mud pit. Everything was dirty. Half the lights didnt work and every thing I plugged into the light sockets fell out because they were broken and lose.
