The Alley Room was terribly horrid, nasty, disgusting, filthy, funky, bathroom ceiling is falling, sheets has brown nasty STAINS, blankets were stuck to the sheets and dingy,tried pulling the blanket back and the sheets were crusty and stuck... would not even sit on the bed. Towels were dingy and stiff, immediately... 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.

Stayed here on my way up from Miami to Niagara Falls and it was horrid. Dirty dark and scary. I did not even want to unload my belongings. Dust filled lamp shades .. nasty tub that I did not even shower. Wifi did not work and they blamed it on my computer. Will not be back.

It looks like the photos shown on Shorecrest's web sight date back to when it was built or the last time it was renovated however it was far from representative of the grotty rooms we experienced. We kept clear of the restaurant for fear of contacting some frightful disease however as we had prepaid our accommodation we decided to use... More

I have heard adverse stories regarding how bad, unsafe and, dirty Detroit has become and it is a Ghost Town, this is so untrue, we found the City and it’s people beautiful with plenty to do and see. The river walk was just beautiful admiring Windsor Ontario Canada across the Canadian River, it was just breathtaking. We decided to stop... More

I think I once reviewed this place here or at a similar place. Its been years since I stayed here but I had a lasting impression of this place, and see its under the same ownership, so I just want to warn people away, especially families! First, in fairness, I think its decent in some terms. Big problem is that... More
