Clean. Sort of. For an old building, the surroundings as well as inside building are clean. Parking is good. Getting inside the parking lot is a bit tricky---just a few feet away from entrance to a highway. Great Staff! Very helpful. Now the kitchen--Full-sized refrigerator. Stove top, no oven. Only cooking pan is a fry pan. No sauce pan. No cutting knives except for steak knife. No can opener. No serving dishes. Two huge plates and huge soup bowls. Places that I have gone to with "kitchen" are usually stocked with cooking supplies. For breakfast, they do offer pre-wrapped pastries that you can get from 7-11.
Now the bed. Looked clean. Look closer---there seems to be "boogers" on the cover. Eww! I think they just recycle the sheets if it "looks" clean.
Easy access to UofM. If you are going downtown, I would suggest getting a hotel downtown even for a higher price--convenience of bus and get one which offers breakfast. For this place, unless you are cooking and bring your own supplies for breakfast, it is better to get a higher priced hotel with breakfast and coffee available 24/7.
