Nice hotel, felt like a comfy home with a hearty breakfast. Close to the heart of the city. The Inn is a series of houses that have been restored to reflect the original old-fashioned look, yet offers modern amenities. The hotel is close to the waterfront & the Ford Piquette Auto Plant.

In from out of town? Staycation? Looking for a romantic evening? Either way the Inn On Ferry is must when visiting Detroit. We stayed in the Owen house, in the room with a Jacuzzi tub. Most definitely will be back.

My daughter was recently married at the Detroit Institute of Art; the Inn was the perfect place for us all to stay! It is charming, the rooms were all different and lovely, and it offers a wonderful breakfast spread. But just as important were the very congenial and helpful folks that work there- kudos to Stephanie, Brent, and Craig for...

There are three separate houses and I stayed in Scott. There was a lack of excitement in this one, almost looked as if it was unkept a feeling passing in through past the main entrance lacking warmth. One had to go to the main house for reception and breakfast. Breakfast was superb. The main house felt full of charm which...

The location is great if you want to do work in or visit downtown or midtown Detroit. It's within an easy walk of the Detroit Institute of Art and Wayne University. Not only are the turn-of-the century buildings beautifully restored but the service is impeccable. Breakfast, buffet style, is great. A shuttle van is available to bring you to and...

Loved the room and the atmosphere. Location was good for many activities including the museums, Wayne State, and restaurants within striking distance. The inn had more than adequate wifi, comfortable beds, and friendly service. So why was it just shy of great? There were a couple of places we thought the inn keepers could have upped their game a bit....
