They used to be a value motel with reasonable rates, clean rooms and secure. Since our last stay in Dec 2013 until now (Jul 2014). Things took a turn for the scary! If you book your room more than a few weeks ahead of time, they WILL lose your reservation. Therefore, don't pay upfront through a website or you'll be... More

1st off this place is a bit beat down but the rooms are clean and quiet and the staff was pleasant. 2" thick bulletproof glass at the reception desk may be a sign of old times because the Corktown area is actually being reborn and is an up and coming area. 1 elevator but it was always quick, free parking...

I'll put it straight out there: this isn't the kind of hotel that everyone will enjoy staying at, but you know what? It perfectly sums up the Detroit experience, and for that reason, I loved the Corktown Inn. Yes, the front desk is protected by bulletproof glass. Yes, it's in a seedy area of town. Yes, the infused stench of... More

I was treated very well during my stay. Beatrice was very helpful and kind and the room was clean. Wifi worked great and the jaccuzi was good. I will stay there again on my next trip to Detroit. Will reccomend it to others who want a resonable place to stay at a good price.

I was looking for a place as cheap as possible and I paid $62 for a room that was clean, a large bath and a comfy bed. The wifi was also good. But: the area is absolutely terrible and unsafe, I only got out to go to a close bk and than run back, the structure is not exactly pretty... More

A friend and I stayed here for 3 nights from June 20-23rd. While we had some of the issues stated in other posts the ones we had were on the low issue side. For 2 caucasian males checking in at 1am it was rather uneventful. Girl at the front desk while looking somewhat sketchy turned out to be very friendly... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

After reading other reviews I had fairly low expectations but booked a room anyway because I was traveling alone and like staying in dive hotels. Any time a hotel clerk is behind bullet proof glass you know youre probably not in the best of areas. But alas it turned out not to be nearly as exciting as i thought it... More

I was very impressed at my room. It was very nice, clean and quiet. I had no complaints. I can say i was a little shocked as i walked in the lobby and immediatly ran into a hooker, I did not judge the hotel because there will be nasty females everywhere. I walked into my room and was very happy.... More
