We stayed at this hotel due to closeness to Comerica Park Ballpark and price. This was a very OLD hotel. Attendant on duty was friendly and helpful. He printed out directions to the ball park. The room was VERY basic. Clean, but no phone, no ice machine, no hair dryer. The bed was not made up, nor new towels provided... More

The room was very dirty. It seemed like the bed sheet was not changed for over a month and that the toilet has not been cleaned ever. The internet didn't work. For the people in the hotel and around it it seems more a brothel than a motel. I could not stand it so I preferred to leave and loose... More

This is one of those dirt cheap places so I can't really complain. You get what you pay for. We went to a concert at the Masonic Temple and this was the closest place to stay. Rather than driving an hour home afterwards. We only slept here, didn't shower or anything else. They only provide a bar of soap, so... More

It's a totally horrible place. I rented a room over the telephone from Florida, and when I arrived there I found homeless people loitering in the facility. The area was dirty and stinky, even the office of the motel was nothing but a kitchen room littered with garbage and trash cans. The old women from India does not understand English... More

My husband and I came up for the cruse in and we found everyone to be very nice, the dog's are very friendly and rooms clean. The only thing my husband didn't like was the toilet was very low to the ground. Thanks for everything :-)

Firstly this isn't a family-friendly motel - it has shady characters, bulletproof glass at the office, in a sketchy area (though very close to downtown), and porn on the TV - but none of that bothers me and I actually prefer to stay in edgier locations for a more authentic experience of the city I'm in so I enjoyed that....
