This place is awful. Yes, it is right in downtown Rochester, but that is the only attraction. First, it's old and dirty. It stinks - I mean REALLY stinks. Room smells so strong of smoke smell I couldn't handle it. I had booked for 2 nights. I told the only I couldn't handle the smell and would not be able... More

This is the worst and dirtiest motel that i have ever seen in my entire life. There are too many reasons why. First, the customer service is the worst service that i have ever seen. There was a guy who got into a fight with us, he keep cussing and arguing with us when we ask to change our blanket... More

If you want a cheap motel for nothing else than to sleep I'm this is great. The beds are comfy, but our TV did not work at all, and made some terrible noise. It didn't turn off so we just unplugged it. The WiFi didnt work, and right on the door it says check out at 12pm,but at 11 they... More

I have quite a history with this place. One of my many stays was in 1990 while waiting to 'close' on our new home on Parkdale Road. We were there for almost a month, and shared 2 adjoining room, as a family...Since then been back for visits, as I live in FL now - and retired. Watched Rochester change (not... More

I will admit I am a bit fussy about hotels, but I sure don't need anything fancy- just clean, and a place that makes me feel like I won't get cooties from sitting on the bed. Anyway, we decided to stay here for the night before we went to a birthday party in the area, where we knew we would... More

My husband and I had been to the Spartan Motel in Rochester, MI before and thought we knew what to expect from this trip. It is conveniently located so that we can visit family who live 5 minutes away. We learned when checking in that the motel is now under new management. The first thing we noticed was that the...

We had no microwave, fridge, hairdryer, coffee pot. The bathtub was filthy, at least the red color was paint not blood. The continental breakfast was really just coffee, apple, banana, and a prepackaged sweet roll and that was only after we asked the desk for some coffee. The smell on the second balcony was smokey- flop house - not good.... More

We stayed at the Spartan Motel in Rochester Hills, Michigan in August. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. The room was very clean, the staff was very helpful. It's an old motel but nice. Pastries and coffee were provided in the lobby in the mornings. Conveniently located in the downtown shopping area. We'll be staying there again!!
