I would stay there again
Old motel, only sheets on the bed, noisy AC, and they never got the smell of cigarettes out of the room. Parking free and easy. One mile from convention center, easy enough walk, or scooters are easy to find. I would stay there again, as it’s affordable.

Little sketchy. Nice staff
Dirty. There were two intoxicated men laying on the sidewalk I’m in front of the room two doors down. One almost ran my husband over with a scooter. It was not a comfortable setting. I could hear them outside my room in the middle of the night. The staff, on the other hand, was very friendly !

4/10 Fair

Not safe and rundown.
I did not feel safe here at all. If you prefer to stay at major hotel chains, do not stay here! The room looked very cheap. The bed was like a cardboard mattress that had a slump in it. I found trash in the corners. I moved the lamps and coffee tray and they had some type of cleaner soaled underneath of them. The office chair that is provided should be thrown out. It was all kinds of broken. The walls were paper thin. You could here everything going on outside. It just felt rundown, cheap and stuck in the past. Nothing here with current technology. No USB ports and limited outlets. The towels in my room looked like it was used by a mechanic. It had black oil stains and then thrown into the washer for a guest. The only great staff was the young lady running the night shift. She was very sweet and helpful. The guy on the day shift did not want to help you of you had an issue. He just wanted your money.

Lot of bang for your buck
This place is very underrated! The building itself is old and nothing spectacular but it is clean, a great location, free parking and a free shuttle! You would pay the price of the room alone for parking and transportation to your events on top of triple price for your room elsewhere in Detroit! Super friendly and helpful front desk service and very professional shuttle driver who gave us great recommendation for dinner within walking distance of our event, and prompt pickup after!
