We stayed here because of its location and price. It is close to the D Drop, New Year's Eve celebration and Ford Field. We attended the New Year's Eve D Drop in 2016. We were going to walk there, but decided to drive. Others in our hotel did walk and it took about 1/2 hour. An Indian Family owns this...

I am not saying this is a nice hotel by any means but since the horrible reviews a nice Indian family bought this motel and looks like the are fixing this up. The hotel is very old and needs a lot of tlc but the crime and hookers have been removed. My friend and I were out of option so...

We stayed at this hotel due to closeness to Comerica Park Ballpark and price. This was a very OLD hotel. Attendant on duty was friendly and helpful. He printed out directions to the ball park. The room was VERY basic. Clean, but no phone, no ice machine, no hair dryer. The bed was not made up, nor new towels provided...

The room was very dirty. It seemed like the bed sheet was not changed for over a month and that the toilet has not been cleaned ever. The internet didn't work. For the people in the hotel and around it it seems more a brothel than a motel. I could not stand it so I preferred to leave and loose...

This is one of those dirt cheap places so I can't really complain. You get what you pay for. We went to a concert at the Masonic Temple and this was the closest place to stay. Rather than driving an hour home afterwards. We only slept here, didn't shower or anything else. They only provide a bar of soap, so...

It's a totally horrible place. I rented a room over the telephone from Florida, and when I arrived there I found homeless people loitering in the facility. The area was dirty and stinky, even the office of the motel was nothing but a kitchen room littered with garbage and trash cans. The old women from India does not understand English...
