I grew up in Grand Blanc and had been by the Scenic Inn constantly throughout my life (I'm over 50). Due to a recent home shakeup, I ended up at the scenic as a landing spot before moving to lifes next phase - either renting or buying a place... The owners were very helpful and the longterm rental rate was extremely reasonable. The garbage and towels are taken care of daily with a big cleaning and linen change weekly... HBO, Wi-Fi as well as local phone service is provided and the rooms are comfortable - not fancy - comfortable. The building was constructed in the 1950's and the walls are thick and the soundproofing is evident! If you are looking for a decent place to stay at an affordable price, I'd pick the Scenic... Good central Grand Blanc location, close to I-75 and Genesys Health Park... and no, the water doesnt stink!
There is no swimming pool or room service here - there is, however a nice little restaurant/bar called Khios Island at the front of the property. Good food at a good price!!
