The property was clean and well suited for my needs. My only concern is that the hotel is located on an obscure road that was difficult to find initially. Now that I know how to find it, I will definitely stay there again.

Just stayed one night to be with niece for a visit. But TV was not HD and had lots of Porn channels that We had no interest in and were offended to see. Could have been cleaner, but overall, comfortable beds and nicely renovated bath.

I travel for work & had to stay there because everything else was full. The room was clean, but I didn't feel comfortable staying there. It was just a place to shower & sleep. The lobby was locked in the evening after 5pm. Had to talk to the desk clerk through a glass. I was appalled at finding x-rated tv when flipping through channels. Glad I didn't have any children with me.

Advertise wifi. No wifi even when the manager came to our room as he insisted there was wifi. Asked for a room discount and they said, "No!" Morning staff was very rude. Will never stay here again.

Hotel in Southfield Michigan

This hotel is not what is expected as seen on the website. We could not stay there, it is filthy and in disrepair. It is deplorable and unacceptable.

Scary and unsafe!!!

Do not stay here!!! We left after checkling in. The toilet had not been cleaned and soon after being in the room a man knocked on the door. He was not hotel staff and was persistent. When I tried to use the hotel phone to call the front desk, the phone did not work. This place was dirty and my daughter and I felt very unsafe.

Enjoyable stay

Cons: Breakfast is nothing; don't plan on much.
Room is decorated very nicely, in good taste. Bed very comfortable. A bit cramped if you're staying for several days.
