The property was under a lot of re-modeling during my stay. There was a lot of painting being done in the exterior of the property making it difficult to feel comfortable. My room was not as clean as I expected too. The bathroom had footprints imprinted on the walls. In addition, there was an altercation in the parking lot which even caused the police to show up to mediate the situation. I ended up only staying 1 night as I was supposed to stay 2 nights since I wasn't happy with the overall atmosphere, look and feel of the property.

Worst place I’ve ever stayed in my life! I feel like a murder scene probably what happened here! There was literally still cigarette butts on the floor, fingerprints all over the walls, and the deadbolt to the room was broken and lactose and at one point. I’ve reached out to management twice and they can’t even take a moment to give me a call back! Again I say DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!

I actually did not stay. I when we pulled up and saw the locations, saw the homeless people standing on the corner. I knew it wasn't a safe place for 2 women to stay. We kept an open mind, asked the Front desk gentlemen if we could see the room. He was very kind and said yes. He then pulled down the glass, locked it up on two sides, came out and told us to follow him....down a skinny dirty hallway. With a few zigs & zags, we ended up back outside at the back of the building. He took us to our room. The room was very basic, beds were about 4 inches thick with no bounce. Told him thank you but no thank you.

Not for Family and Friends

Pros: It close to everything downtown and you can walk to all events. The parking was free!
Cons: Better help and update the hotel!
Location: Near everything important!
The 4 to 12 staff member at check-in was great and the 12-8 am on Monday morning was helpful but the other staff members were evil with attitudes! I had to beg many times to have my room changed because they did not clean the room my first 2 days! Rooms are extremely small with old beat-up furniture. I usually do not agree with reviews but these review were on point!

Much rougher then pics would make it seem

Cons: More comfortable bed, and climate control that works!!!
Well the bed was very uncomfortable, the A/C blew out hot air (my brother was in a separate room, same thing). I had to open the door with the chain attached in order to get some cool air into the room, and well lets just say that it was a little sketchy area, even for Detriot.
