The room and premises were dated and needs updating. There was black mold in the bathroom. Perhaps if the vending worked this would not be a problem. The staff were friendly accommodating and knowledgeable.

Room are good sized and maintained. A lot of marble topped furniture and 3 chairs. It makes the room a little full, but gives you lots of places to put things. Very few wall outlets. Bathroom not updated, but maintained. Acceptable breakfast, though seating area very limited. Lobby and hallways nicely updated. Very reasonable price. I would stay again.

Stayed at this hotel so I could attend a family wedding. I am glad we had family to spend time with because this hotel is not located near anything. I had read other reviews so I knew there were renovated rooms and non renovated rooms. I paid the extra $10 for the renovated room. Upon entering the room it had... More

We booked this room as a stop over before we went on to Detroit. It was a reasonable price, however the condition was terrible. The rooms were original to the building and all the bathroom fixtures were pink. I haven't seen a pink tub and toilet since the 70's! There was mold in the bathroom, cigarette burns on the blankets... More

The room was nice and suited our needs for a 2 night stay, hospitality was average upon check-in plus paid in full up front so check out was quick and easy. Only issue was the fire alarm/smoke detector went off in the middle of the night which woke my 4 & 1/2 year old daughter...called the front desk and was... More

Although a bit dated, this hotel is very nice. The check-in staff were friendly and accommodating. Our room was very clean. The breakfast had a good variety and the person looking after it was very efficient. The price was right and we would stay here, again.
