Stayed here because of proximity to U of M campus. Hard to find the entrance to the motel - circled the neighborhood a few times to get in. Had to register the car with the front desk to be allowed to park in the lot.
Fairly safe neighborhood - but a little remote from shopping and eating, unless you count the restaurant which takes up most of the front parking lot.
Room was comfortable. Asked for a quiet room - was given one on the top floor, but next to the stairs. Since the elevator was very slow, many guests used the stairs. The fire door closed very noisily each time they did so.
Wi-fi was worthless. There's an apartment building across the way and they all seemed to be on the unsecured wi-fi connection. The manager said it had been a problem in the past - must be my computer. I called and spoke to their trouble-shooting people for over an hour and a half total. They finally said there were too many people using the network. The manager did give me a credit on my stay, after protesting for half an hour. Did offer to send me to another hotel - at my expense. Since I chose this location for price and wi-fi, thought it was rather nasty of him to do so. Told him to offer credit for services billed but not received. Uploading reports in the lobby (separate, short-range wi-fi zone) for hours each night was not comfortable or conducive to business.
Breakfast was minimal and not as advertised. The room had a mini-fridge and microwave. I found a local grocery store and loaded up on breakfast items. See attached picture for offerings.
Rated my stay as "average" rather than "poor", since the room itself was clean and comfortable.
