I stayed for 4 nights in room 119 in early July of 2015. Good: Room was nice, few restaurants and a convenients store is very close. The cleaning ladies are all very nice. The female receptionist at the front counter was very nice as well. The driver of the airport shuttle was awesome. I wish I had some cash on... More

If anyone is giving anything above 1 star might be an employee. The outside of the hotel looks decent, so does the lobby. But when you turn that corner to get to the rooms, it looks horrible. Old, raggidy. And the beds are very old, not comfortable. The tv's look like they're from the early 90's. The blankets on the... More

I'm writing this review for my husband who travels for work. He needed an inexpensive hotel to stay in while working in the area and found this on trip advisor. Though we knew the reviews weren't that good he took a chance anyway. Well needless to say I think the title of this review says it all. The TV had... More

I had pretty low expectations--I had read the reviews, but I couldn't pass up the price I got on Orbitz ($40 including tax). I needed an airport motel that had a free shuttle. So I took my chances. Here are the things that exceeded my expectations: The place actually has a fitness center, which isn't nice at all but has... More

Don't even think about staying here! The room was freezing, the heater was covered in mold, so it was not even useable! There were only 2 thin sheets on the bed! There was old urine on the toilet seat, so that wasn't even cleaned! The people next to and above us sounded like they were destroying their room till 4am... More

Missed my flight and had to find something within my budget, this hotel was perfect it had a store and shuttle rooms were clean only drawback was the long hallway, my room was located at the very end other than that the staff was polite and friendly and my experience was good I will be staying here again

I needed a hotel close to the airport between flights. The good: Close to the airport, quick shuttle to/from the airport, several restaurants nearby, cheap prices, bed and room furniture in better shape than expected. The bad: Room in BAD disrepair (see photos attached). Holes in the ceiling, busted door lock, broken key pad, filthy air conditioner, scary long term... More

This is by far the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. Horrible customer service, rooms are dirty and smell like mold , people hanging out in the hallway, DO NOT STAY HERE , you be better off sleeping in the airport or in your car

Bad night of storms in the Detroit are and elsewhere led to several flight delays and cancelations. This literally was the last hotel with rooms in the airport area. Like another reviewer, I had a bad feeling when I walked in the lobby. It only got worse from there. The room was very musty (the air conditioner was not on... More

To start my stay the guy at the front desk was a real jerk. First to me and then to the person that was trying to help from the booking agency. When I got into the room it was hot and the air conditioner was not operational. The room had a very odd smell and the bathroom smells like urine.... More
