    Extremely bad, lice bedding in mattress and carpet, they beat me all nights, my skin become red in many places, I could not sleep, I was like insect hunter, when I show the lice bedding to the personal he tried to solve it, or may be pretend to solve it, but the manger try until my time has worked out. Everything is old and smells awful. I plame booking. com how they approve this place and put it in there search list. The breakfast is just kind of joke.

    The only good thing about the hotel is that it is close to the city. So if you were doing anything downtown detroit that would be a benefit.

    The room was very dirty. There were stains on the carpet, mold on the walls and holes in the walls. I was not impressed at all and felt dirty. I wanted to leave the entire time we were there but we were too cheap to get a different hotel. It was very noisy late at night and even blessed us with a helicopter shining its lights through the parking lot at midnight.

    The hotel is very close to downtown. My drive in the morning only took 5 minutes.

    The hotel is in a sketchy area of town. The facilities are old. The "breakfast" is a joke.

    The staff was nice, loved the resturant, the rooms were clean. The parking attendants did a nice job keeping out the non-guests.

    There was very low pressure in the shower, a definate low point. The air conditioning was weak. Not crazy about the location, traffic.

    The price was very affordable.

    The overpowering smell of cleaner covering up smoke as we walked into our room. That smell left with us and followed us home.

    The staff were quite nice and the diner was good.

    The room smelled so strongly of carpet cleaner, it was hard to take. The carpet itself was in very poor condition.

    Close to people mover.

    I'm glad the room was clean, however there was such a chemical smell, we had to leave.

  • Group of friends

    We were welcomed by a member of staff who was agressive, unwilling to understand who we were. Even though we had a reservation, with a file number, ut took him 15 min to understand that we had already booked, and would agressive keep saying that we had to see with management on the morning, while we tried to tell him we had already booked.

    The location was only about a mile away from the cobo Center, which was our destination for the weekend.

    I did not like Detroit.
