We arrived in dtw a little later than expected and decided to stay close to the airport and start fresh in the morning. We usually stay at another hotel near the airport, but they were booked. The desk clerk (night time), was extremely rude. I wanted to see the room prior to booking because we had our 7 month old... More

Beware: There is no refund after the first 15 minutes. (We didn't know this.) A few minutes after checking in and bringing in our bags, my fiance went to the front desk after dicovering black mold in the bathroom and covering the AC; and used condoms and trash under the bed. The guy at the check-in desk showed him another... More

Hotel is so dirty. Had blood on our sheets. Asked front desk for clean sheets and pillow cases and was told that housekeeping was gone for the day "@ 4 p.m." Guy said he'd figure it out. Never did. We were forced to share a single bed because of it. Not worth the dirt cheap price.

I'm from the Detroit area but was not that familiar with hotels right near the airport… I was in town for just a fun quick weekend trip… This hotel had a great rate but I didn't want to even take my shoes off in the room. It reminded me of the shining hotel the Stanley… Super gross super creepy super... More

I went to Detroit for a concert. I was looking for a place to sleep for one night, and my son to stay for two ( he flew in for the show). The Magunson fit the bill. It was cheap, the room was clean, and I slept well. FYI - no continental breakfast, but restaurants and c-stores nearby. Again, nothing... More
