OK, let's have the positives first--it was clean, it was cheap, it was convenient. If that's all you're looking for and you don't mind old, it's ok. Old is not the word to describe this place. I think the Model T in the lobby was the newest thing in the place! The pictures on the website look good, but in person, it's pretty dismal. I was attracted by the inside entries, and cheap price. The "inside entry" to our room didn't latch unless you pulled up on the handle and shoved with your shoulder! You could see light (from the hall) all the way around it. Too boot, both mornings we went back, the house keepers had failed to make the door latch! Thank goodness we left nothing of value in the room. It was clean: no bugs, mice, rats, roaches, all that! Then, there was the heat.....radiator heat--I turned it down and woke up freezing, I turned it up and woke up sweating. I finally left it on and cranked the a/c up to compensate. Then, there's the neighborhood.....it's right on the edge of not-so-good and ok. Turn back towards Detroit and you're greeted with at least 1 strip joint per block, until you get to the burned out buildings and panhandlers. If you turn the other way--away from downtown--it gets better each block and you're not far from the mall......on the border at best. There's a Pizza Hut across the corner and a Frisch's a block down--both look better in the daylight. It needs an overhaul....yeah, with a bulldozer or a gallon of kerosene and a match! The staff was not overly friendly, but cordial. It's just nowhere I'd like to stay again! No knowing ANYTHING about the Detroit area we picked it mainly because of the price and location. I'm sure there are plenty of places just as close and at least as inexpensive. Don't stay!
