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

Delta airlines put me up here when I missed a flight out of Detroit Metro. It is a terrible place. There was a long line to check in. When I got to the room there were no towels, which meant another wait in line. They had no restaurant open, so I dined on peanuts and V-8 juice. Months later I... More

Just stayed here last night as I had a long nite layover flight. After walking through the front door, u sense a creepy hotel. The smell is dingy and reeks of old-stale smoke. While checkin in, a drunk walks down the creeky stairwell. In the room, the interior safety latch is not even secured to the door frame, mirrors and... More

We were greeted at 3am by a very cheery friendly man by the name of Steve. When we came down in the morning he was still there and still very cheery and friendly. We stayed for a couple nights and Steve was there each day. He was such a warm friendly man, I can't say enough. We were going to... More

I had a bad feeling as soon as entering the room. Room smells horribly musty, sheets had stains on them. Only reason I did not leave was because a flight had been cancelled and it was the only room I could get after midnight. I woke up the next morning with bed bug bites. Should have left and slept in... More

I can't think of one reason to stay at this hotel (the $55 I paid was way too much!). Reasons not to stay: very poorly maintained property; no locking entrance on the side (wide open door and no key or card needed to enter the hotel); dog bowls under the ice machine (don't know what that was about . ....
