Came to Detroit to visit my boyfriend. Just needed a place to sleep and shower. However, there was a bar of soap left in the shower with hair on it upon our arrival leading us to believe the room was not as clean as we thought. The bed was uncomfortable and the room itself was a little outdated, but it...

First when we arrived our room had been given away. Then we were moved to another one only to find out the room was dirty. They then moved us to A SUITE, which we thought would be great only to find the toilet didn't work, shower curtain had mold, couldn't get towels, floor was dirty, there is a strong odor...

Again short notice led us to this property. inexpensive for a reason. This was once a great spot I am sure. Now on the edge of a seedier area on one side and downtown on the other side. Still very walk-able to Greektown or Tiger Stadium. about ten minutes to GM place and the People Mover. The People Mover is...

We had to stay here last minute after the hotel we had booked was really bad. The staff are very polite and friendly. The location is OK, close to most things. The room, is dark and dingy, just what you expect in a motel. For 1 night, it was ok, as we were just there to sleep. I would not...

The Motel is a little run down but the staff were very friendly and helpful and I felt safe there. It is a couple of blocks from the riverside walkway and is walking distance to the downtown GM Center and People Mover. It has ample free parking There is free basic breakfast and a good diner next door. If you...

I wouldn't stay here again but it is not that bad, the room was big and the location is good. For the cons, the beds are very old and springy, 2 of the room lights were not working, neither did the tv and there were hairs in the bathroom and around the room. It was supposes to have free wifi...

This hotel has two things to recommend it. It's great location and the diner Clique that is attached to it on this alone I suggested it to friends as a place to stay. They left early because one of them was bitten by a spider and despite twice saying that they were going to pay in cash and did not...

I had to move from the first room, because the room was not cleaned properly (hair between the sheets) and socks under the bed. The second room, there were heating problems, and wi-fi problems, so they brought blankets to the room. The rooms are old and need updating. Location is perfect however its old, and half of the things are...

Our family booked here, thinking there was free continental breakfast! But there was barely a drop of old orange juice, and powdered cream for the coffee. We didn't see anything else. The other morning there was no orange juice at all. Just kinda of misleading. Plus noisy guests at night with some rooms having more guests allowed than the fire...

Stayed one night recently for business. Check in was fast and easy thanks to the morning gentleman. Our room was ready when we arrived at 11:00am which was a big plus. Received second floor room as requested. Room was nice, king bed was comfortable. TV had plenty of channels. Great continental breakfast for business run. Will be back in June.
