I'm giving this Motel 6 four stars, keeping in mind that it's a Motel 6 so there's a severe limit on how good or luxurious it can be, OTOH being a Motel 6 the price was very good.
What makes this Motel 6 distinctive is that its architecture is different from the usual 2-story boxlike structures that characterize most Motel 6's that I've seen. Single story, more sprawling (so no stairs, but longer walks to get to the office, pool, etc.). But it was the interior (at least of my room; I didn't see other rooms) which was the most unique: furnishings and decor which were a bit post-modernist and a bit Crate-and-Barrel-ist. E.g. instead of an ordinary towel rack there were brightly colored ... I guess you'd have to call them shelves or slots, they looked more like decoration than like utilitarian pieces, but they were quite functional. The whole room was like that: unusual or innovative design and decor. Again, nothing ultra-fancy but certain out of the ordinary most especially for a Motel 6. I wonder if the motel had been designed and built by someone else, and got bought and converted into a Motel 6 -- but with the interiors left intact.
The location was good for people wanting a cheap place to stay in Ann Arbor, assuming they have a car. It's two and a half miles from the campus of the Univ of Michigan -- so an easy drive but a very long walk. It's next to an office park and behind a McDonalds ... there were one or two other restaurants pretty close nearby, maybe a convenience store, not much else. It's also close (1.6) miles to Ann Arbor Airport, but I don't know if many people use that airport. Over 20 miles from Detroit Airport -- but Detroit itself is about that distance from Detroit Airport.
