Stayed here because it was close to an appointment we had at Wayne State. Very nice restored Victorian mansion. My room was comfortable and clean. Staff were friendly and polite. The breakfast spread was very nice - eggs, fresh fruit, yogurt, and an assortment of cereals and pastries. The inn has a complimentary shuttle, which was came in very handy... More

We planned to go to the Detroit Film Theatre for the Academy Aware Short Films on my husband's birthday and had been meaning to visit the Inn on Ferry St. ever since my sister had stayed here a few years ago. They had stayed in a Queen room for two nights and had loved it. For this weekend, I had... More

The Inn is one of the few nice places to stay in Detroit. The room was really comfy, great bed, lovely linens but as we were next to the front door, every time someone came in at night we woke up, even worse when a bunch of drunk 40 something women came back at 2am and decided to use the... More

The Inn on Ferry Street in the Wayne State area of Midtown Detroit is a hidden gem of Victorian architecture and gracious comfort. Four turn-of-the-19th-century homes have been converted into a well-appointed bed and breakfast style boutique hotel. Staff is friendly and very accommodating. Location is great for the arts and business activities throughout the Detroit area.

I took my three daughters to see Wicked & experience some other attractions in Detroit. The Inn on Ferry Street offered unique and very special accommodations for our trip. We stayed in the Smith Carriage House which offers two queen bedrooms, a lovely sitting room, and a large bathroom. It is on the second floor, so steps are unavoidable but... More

We recently stayed at the Inn while taking in an Andrea Bocelli concert in Detroit. It was a busy weekend in Detroit with a football game the same night. I chose the Inn because of the reviews but also because they offered free shuttle service to the event and elsewhere in Detroit (within 5 miles). They Inn, as described, consists... More

My wife and I had a event at the DIA and had dinner at the Whitney. The Inn shuttled us to the DIA, picked us up and took us to the restaurant and collected us at the end on the night. We stayed in one of the Queen rooms which was clean and roomy. Breakfast the next morning was very... More

I liked The Inn on Ferry Street. It's very close to the Detroit Institute of Arts. Breakfast was excellent. The only drawback is that the walls between rooms can be very thin, since the buildings are old converted mansions. It helps to tell your neighbors that you can hear every word they say. (!)

We had a lovely, spacious and beautifully decorated room, a living room with a fireplace, and a veranda. The staff was friendly, helpful and so accommodating with coffee, food and shuttle service. Even took my friend to the ER at midnight and returned us safely and with very kind words at 2:00 am. The Inn and it's 6 gorgeous homes,... More

The Inn is this spectacular array of 6 historic homes right next door to the DIA. The rooms are spacious and clean and the complimentary chocolate chip cookies left on your bed side table are just what you need for a midnight snack. I can not say enough good things about all the staff at the Inn. Not only did... More
