OK, so I were extremely weary to stay at this place due to reviews, but seriously! IT WAS NOT THAT BAD!
This was one of the cheapest hotels in the area, which we needed since we were in a 7 day vacation and we were not looking into spending a whole lot of money in hotel rooms, specially when we only use it to sleep for a few hours. We flew from VA. to Milwaukee, where we spent one day, then we drove to Detroit, MI. where we spent 3 days and then Chicago, IL. where we spent 4 days. We payed $181.00 for the 3 days we stayed in this motel, so the value was great.
Yes, the neighborhood was a little lonely, but I didn't see any prostitutes or crack heads or anything of that sort, people just tend to exaggerate and over react to things. There is a gate that you need to open with your room key if you are driving, for extra protection.
The rooms were ok, they could be a little bigger though I think, the bed was not all that comfortable, but it did. The deco was old and out dated, but who cares, were were only there a few hours a day to get some sleep and then back out in the city exploring.
Overall the clean was room, no bed bugs. The hotel's location was very good for our itinerary, it was close to some nice bars.
They have HBO and other nice channels if you care for those kind of things.
I was pleased with my stay here overall, the hotel is definitely seen better days and needs an upgrade in furniture and such, but for the money we paid, it'd do!.
The one thing i did find annoy8ing were the people in the reception, some foreigners I believe from Russia, it was extremely hard to understand them and for them to understand their guests.
Oh! we also didn't get any room service for the 3 days we were there! it was odd! but we were so busy running around the city and completing our itinerary that we didn't ever have the time to talk to the people in the reception about it. Not a big deal for us, we didn't run out of soap or anything, but I'm sure it can be a deal breaker for other, so this is why I bring this up. You might want to keep this in mind.
