“Newer, Clean and attractive rooms”
Reviewed May 29, 2008

One of the cleanest Holiday rooms I've stayed in with more upscale furnishings. King size bed was very comfortable. Rooms were quiet and exceptionally clean. Shower area had decorative tile. Refrigerator to keep your beverages cold or leftovers from dinner out. Microwave was useful too. Nice to have a lounge chair and ottoman to stretch out in and read. Had the breakfast package and food was good and reasonable. They had a nice fitness area that I didn't get a chance to use which I wish I would've. Close to downtown and UofM. Would definately stay here again if in town.

This hotel stole $123 from me after refusing to cancel my reservation, despite the fact I called a full 24 hrs in advance. Apparently they value stealing other people's money more than they value quality customer service. I have left numerous messages with Mark, the hotel manager and he has not returned my calls or emails. I am attempting to contest the charge with my Visa card company, but don't expect to get my money back. Avoid this hotel if you make a reservation and may need to cancel it.

Another good Holiday Inn stay. Clean and friendly, wireless was good, and close to the UM campus so there were plenty of good eating places just a quick drive away.

This hotel is good value for money and only 7 minutes drive from downtown. The room was clean and quite large with a seperate lounge and dining area. The pool/whirlpool area was clean, the water warm enough for our young daughter to swim in.

The bed was comfortable and they provide 3 pillows per person.

We did not eat at the hotel, so I can't comment on that.

The front desk staff is helpful and friendly.

The only thing negative is that in our room with a fridge and microwave, there was no crockery or cutlery - not even a teaspoon.



I would stay here again and I would recommend it.

We had a great experience at this hotel. The staff was warm and friendly and the room was clean and very spacious. I LOVED the beds and pillows! It would have been nicer if the breakfast was included, but the offerings in the lobby restaurant were very reasonably priced.

It's not often that you can honestly describe a Holiday Inn property as terrific, but this hotel falls under that category. It's cost effective and feels like it's brand new. The suite with whirlpool bathtub is incredibly spacious for the price. This hotel is tucked behind a few restaurants in the south side of Ann Arbor, so it's not for you if you need to be within walking distance of the University of Michigan campus. However, it is easily accessible from the freeway and it's hard to complain about anything. It was perfectly clean and quiet. Definitely a great choice for Ann Arbor.

We stayed at this hotel for one night to try the new hotel and let the kids go swimming. We had a King Suite and there was plenty of room. We also had a regular room which was average in size.

First the pros..
The hotel was very quiet , I think there were just a handful of people staying there.

The beds were very comfortable.

Checkout was at 12:00 P.M.

The rooms were clean.

Rooms are non smoking or so they say .

They had an indoor pool that was clean.

Not a far drive from Downtown Ann Arbor


Now the cons...

The girl that checked us in was nice but gave us no information at all like what time checkout was , what time the pool was open till, that Breakfast was not complimentary. She pretty much just gave us a smile and never said much of anything!
When we checked out it was the same.

The breakfast they serve buffet style is only complimentary for kids not adults. This is fine with me if only it was worth paying money for and if I had been told about it before hand.
It was very lacking in the food department. There was only about six items to choose from.
There is a Tim Hortons across the street!

The room REEKED of Stale Cigarette smoke. It was really bad!Even though the hotel was near empty they had no other clean suites to move us to . Their explanation was even though they are a non smoking hotel people still smoke in the rooms from time to time. So basically they really do not enforce the rule like other hotels who tack on a fine if you smoke in a non smoking room. Her attitude came off as to bad for you just put up with it!
My sisters room smelled great! No smokers in there!

The pool was nice but FREEZING COLD! The hot tub was nice and hot though!

Overall it was an ok place to stay . For the bare basics it works and for a very comfortable bed its worth it.

  • Liked — Beds
  • Disliked — Freezing cold Pool , Breaksfast , The smell of state cigarettes in room ,Hotel staff lack of desire to be helpful
