“Sketchy and”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

We made a reservation through a third-party site two weeks before we arrived. When we arrived, we were informed by the manager that he doesn't look at the internet for reservations, but that he did have a room for us and would honor the rate from the site.
The hotel appears to be the long-term lodging for several families, which give the motel an especially sketchy vibe. People were sitting outside, grilling, hanging out, etc. Several vehicles are obviously parked in the lot for the long-term, being used more as storage than as motor vehicles.
Once we got past the bizarre crowd outside, climbing over a broken luggage cart in front of our door and struggling with the poorly lit entrance way to our room, we continued to be disappointed in our room. The room was outdated, the in-room fridge was filthy, and the room was crowded with mismatched furniture. The curtains don't block light (from the plaza across the street or the sun in the morning) and one set of our window treatments was broken and hanging halfway down the wall. We had only one bath-sized towel, despite paying the extra person supplement in the room rate. The bed and bathroom were clean enough and the air conditioning worked. There was hot water in the shower in the morning, but the only amenities that are provided are the tiny bars of soap (no shampoo, hair dryer, alarm clock, etc.).

Did not stay here after driving up and seeing it looks noting like the picture. :( appears almost empty and unkept. It is a two story long building, not the two story as pictured, with all outdoor entrances to the rooms. Very busy city and I recommend making a reservation somewhere (else) before arriving.

Just driving by I thought I'd pull in and hope for a good price since it was a local motel. The rate was exactly what I needed, the room was a little dated but quite comfortable, a conversation with a fellow guest was welcomed after traveling solo for so long, and Mr. Patel in the office was very cordial!

This hotel is a great place to stay. Its very cheap and the host are very friendly. I have stayed here many times. This hotel was also part of a movie Grandview USA in the 80's. If you are in Pontiac looking for a great place to stay check this place out. Its very clean and updated near bowling and many resturants.
