I stayed here as the Marriott (Pontiac CenterPoint) was full. Given the corporate rates, this hotel was only about $5 less per night than the Marriott, but it felt like much less of a hotel.
The lobby is rather pedestrian, the elevators are hot and slow, but the staff - front desk, restaurant - were all extremely friendly.
The room was a good size and I certainly felt comfortable within the hotel, despite "fresh paint" smell in the hallways that lacked air conditioning making a hot and muggy day outside untolerable in the hallways. The air in the room also struggled to keep up.
Included in your stay is a complimentary breakfast consisting of cereal, toast, coffee, juice, "eggs", bacon, pastries, yogourt, etc. Overall, the service was great, the food was good, except the eggs which tasted like they were made quite some time ago. However, as a bonus, this is not one of those "free breakfasts" with "tip not included' meaning it is not really free. Instead, this truly is a free breakfast. You simply hand them your slip and you can leave when you want.
Would I stay here again? Yes, but I'd rather stay at the Marriott for just a few dollars more per night.
