Stayed here for five nights to attend a conference at the Cobo Center, which was an easy 15 minute walk away. The hotel has its issues which you will read in other reviews but it met my needs just fine. Comfortable bed, clean enough and solid WiFi. If you match your expectations to the price you pay, you won't be... More

Check in was easy, soon as you get your room card you drive your car into the "gated parking". There is a side door and elevators soon as you walk in. Every corner of the hotel an all the entrances have real time video cameras, there is a channel on your tv you can watch all the cameras. We requested... More

Stayed here because of price and proximity to Comerica Park for concert. Checking in was interesting with front desk person behind glass. There were signs offering various frozen items like Hot Pockets and pizza rolls -- room service? We were given a key card with a piece of masking tape with the room number scrawled on it. We went to... More

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
