Although this hotel was very convenient to major roads and access to the University of Michigan, the staff was ambivalent at best. The voucher for breakfast at the adjacent Big Boy restaurant was a nice feature (restaurant staff were great - very personable). Long term tenants stayed adjacent to our room and their cigarette smoke was brought into our room via the outside AC package unit. Hot water shower. Good beds. Faux wood flooring in lieu of carpeting was not kept very clean - our socks were black after walking around the room. OK hotel but would spend more next time in Ann Arbor to get a better experience.

While the Red Roof is 2 star lodging, this one should gain an extra star. The hotel has recently been renovated & is 100% non smoking. The superior king rooms have laminate flooring rather than carpet. As an allergy sufferer, this makes a huge difference in sleep quality. WiFi was fast and reliable.

Room comes with free or discounted breakfast at the attached Big Boy.

*Added Bonus: Red Roof does not charge extra for pets! Other places charge between $10-20 per night.

We stayed here for 4 nights, the first being the night before my mother's surgery at U of M. When we got to our room it was dirty;it hadn't been cleaned at all.So we called the desk and was given another room. The second and third mornings of our stay the sink and mirror weren't cleaned. They were clean the last morning only because I complained twice. And no styrofoam coffee cups were left. I asked for the coffee cups and they said they would have to bring them; five minutes later they brought plastic drinking glasses. The breakfast deal was only a "fair" deal, and the one morning lady at the desk needs to work on her people skills. Disappointing. :(

Room Tip: No elevator to second floor; you must be able to use the stairs.

It's still a Red Roof Inn. It's a two-star place, but we stayed there last nite because of the 4 and a half stars given by Trip Advisor users. Sorry but that's a misleading rating. We bought the Superior King, and the room was clean and recently updated. This is distinctly budget lodging, however. It had the feel of a residential hotel, with folks sitting outside their rooms in their lawn chairs enjoying a cigarette or two. Nothing wrong with that necessarily, but that's what you can expect here. The weather was hot, so the AC was stressed a bit -- either freezing or uncomfortably warm.

Room Tip: If price is your first criterion, this might be OK for you.

I had a reunion in Ann Arbor and needed a place to stay. The designated hotels for the reunion were (to my mind, at least) overpriced for my needs. So, after reading the reviews here I decided to chance the Red Roof. I had had some bad experiences with other Red Roofs in the past. Well, I was delightfully surprised!! I had a King Bed single--fine for my needs but would have been tight had my husband been along. The room had been remodelled with the carpeting replaced with laminate--what a great idea!! No more nasty dirty carpeting under my bare feet!! The price was right, the surroundings were clean and fresh and the reunion was great! Who could ask for anything more?? One problem they need to deal with--the Elias Brothers restaurant that is attached is poorly managed--I waited almost 10 minutes to be seated when I could see at least a dozen empty tables. The wait staff seemed to feel that their job didn't include seating the customers. A man who had been staying there for several months told me it was always that way!!

Rooms were updated...Surprised by the high quality relative to the low price. Booked through Expedia, who messed up my name and number of guests, which slowed up check-in.

Room Tip: Book directly through hotel - not a travel site like Expedia
