The room assigned was okay, not sure if we got one of the better rooms. (3021 in the Roehm house). But it was clean and large, just not so high on the old charm. I live in a victorian house, so it wasn't a major issue. I just wanted clean and comfy. Parking was easy, staff was super friendly and... More

Two of us, one from Chicago and the other from San Francisco, stayed here to see Detroit. The presence of the Inn is a significant element in the area's recovery - and it is a perfect place to see the DIA and the Midtown Area. Impeccably helpful staff, sumptuous breakfast, a great suite in the carriage house - who could... More

This was a great place to stay in a great location in Detroit. We got 20% off our stay by showing our Tigers ticket, and the shuttle to and from the game was a stress-free experience. The bed was very comfy, and our room was surprisingly quiet. Way quieter than the hotel we stayed at the night before! The breakfast... More

Decline of the American Empire….? Bull-XXXX! Canadians visit Detroit. Last fall we took a romantic weekend trip to Detroit. It’s a trip that still sticks with us. At the border crossing, the Ambassador Bridge, there was about an hour long line-up (this is encouraging! this is the busiest border crossing between US/Canada and rumours are that 5 hour waits are...

This inn is actually made up of four or five separate buildings. We were in the Pungs building in room 1102. Our room was large with a lot of amenities. The staff here bent over backwards to make sure everything was to our liking and that we had everything we needed. They were so helpful and hard-working. It is in... More

Really not much to add to the many excellent reviews. Nice buildings, large room, courteous service, tasty breakfast (and chocolate chip cookie, both from a local bakery). I esp. have to give props to the various guys who ran around figuring out the key problem, TV issue and drove the shuttle. Would definitely stay here again.

These are just a few of the words to describe my fantastic stay at the Inn on Ferry Street. The staff made my stay comfortable and serene! Three people stand out in particular - Helena and the Torence(s) :)!! Helena kept me calm when I misplaced my cellphone, and she helped me find it. I inadvertently left it on the... More

If you are visiting Detroit, this is the place to stay! The restored homes that comprise the Inn on Ferry Street are literally around the corner from the Detroit Institute of Art and a multitude of other museums. Also very conveniently located to large medical facilities. And with their fabulous shuttle service (free, unlimited transportation within 5 mile radius), you... More

This is an awesome place to get away from the traditional hotel stay. Wonderful old building in great location that has all you need and then some. Offers Bed & Breakfast experience with friendly and helpful staff. Great breakfast selection in the morning and rooms are clean and spacious. Plus the welcome with water and the best cookie ever!

The hotel consists of several very old, beautifully restored houses. Reviewers here recommended not staying in the Scott house because of the noise (it houses the reception desk and breakfast is served there), so we stayed in the Owen house. The rooms are quite large, with a bedroom and a separate sitting room. The rooms are beautifully decorated and unique... More
