“Park and fly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We stayed here one evening prior to our departure out of Detroit. This hotel lived up to the ratings on tripadvisor. We arrived and our room was ready, she scheduled our shuttle, and suggested a place for dinner. This is a different type of hotel in that you park outside your room. Made it very convient for packing and unpacking the car. The parking lot was full when we left so I was a little uneasy about leaving my keys but my car was safely parked when we returned and the shuttle driver had the keys ready to go. It was a quick commute to the airport and we were picked up promptly when we called for pick up. We left too early for breakfast but everything seemed clean and organized. Would stay here again if need to do the park and fly again. We did get 10 free days parking which is what we needed. A lot of the other hotels only included 7 days parking.

Room Tip: This hotel is close to the airport so I believe you will hear that noise in all rooms.

I wouldn't stay here with my family, but it was a cheap park/sleep/fly option before my flight. Waited about 20 mins to check in while no one was at the desk. Outdoor entrances to every room. Decent breakfast, near the airport and the fly parking is connected to the hotel lot. It was good if you want cheap...serves a purpose.

The desk clerk was very friendly and helpful as was the shuttle driver. The room was very clean and updated. The bed was comfy. The thing we liked best was that all rooms were on the same level so no steps or hallways..On the bad side the internet service is rotten. We had a laptop, Ipad and phones and we kept getting kicked off. Very frustrating...

Nice comfortable rooms situated behind the office in a cottage style setting. A comfortable bed ,a desk for laptop use, and a table used for reading, etc. was great. The bathroom was clean and the entire room looked as if a lot of care was taken to clean it. It is close to many places so is very convenient.

A huge surprise for the price...one story cottage type buildings adjacent to strip mall and accross the street from other restaurant just 5 minutes from the airport. Picked us up at 1 am no problem, make your own waffles in the am, free computer to print boarding pass and save a day on rental car by picking it up the morning after arrival and turning it in the night before.
Rooms are freshly painted with new carpet and it was super clean.
Shutle driver at 1 am was a peach and the front desk fellow was too.
Nothing but good...yes, bldgs are a bit old, but insides are great and the driver was sprucing up the flowers at midnight to help make it look nice.

I had booked this hotel as part of park and fly. Had called twice to confirm my reservation --in a non smoking room. The lady at the front desk was very pleasant, courteous, and had us checked in within a few minutes. Off we went to our room. As soon as my son opened the door, a blast of cigarette smoke hits us! Obviously the previous occupants in the room were smokers, or else we were given a "smoking allowed" room. On requesting a change of room, I was informed that the inn was 100% full. Not a single room was vacant. Anyway, the receptionist sent over a driver to spray our room with a lemon scented spray (which does nothing to the stale smoke smell). The room was spacious, clean, clean washroom, very pleasant staff. Airport shuttle was on time.

Room Tip: I would suggest confirming a non-smoking room before checking in.
