I travel a lot and almost never write hotel reviews. This time I’m compelled to do so.
Upon my arrival to Residence Inn Detroit Pontiac/Auburn Hills during the week of 03/18, I was given room 236. Let me state the positive first… the staff here is kind, pleasant and helpful… best thing going for this hotel. Here comes the areas where massive improvements are needed: Parking outside building 2 is awkward and quite limited. The entrance to this building (doors, carpet, keypad, etc.) is completely worn out and dated. Green carpet throughout? Seriously?
The room wasn’t any better. Same green carpet, VERY dated kitchen, dated couches, the bedding looks like handout from Motel 6. Appliences in the kitchen very well be picked up from the neighborhood trash day. The quality far from other Residence Inn standard. I am really surprised to see other people gave it 3-4 stars… too high in my opinion.
I know Detroit is broke, but Marriott isn’t. So invest the money to upgrades. Serously!
Again, the staff here doing their best with this old, tired hotel to maintain some standard, but you can do only so much!
