Some problemsPros: Price was fair.Cons: No cups or drinking glasses. Sink would not drain, standing water all night
Run down flop house in a good locationPros: LocationCons: Weed smoke everywhere, consistent shady characters conducting business. Essentially feels like an hourly hostel in a decent location. There was what looked like male ejaculation stains and remains all over the floor. I never dared to take my shoes off in the room.
Pros: Close to the airport and restaurants and it was cheapCons: Sleazy hotel. Lots of questionable characters hanging around. Comfortors stained. Bed sheets had stains and tears. Smelled like weed and cigarette smoke.
Cigarette Smoke throughout hotel, not clean, run dPros: Nice that it had a tv to distract me from the many flaws of the room. AC was good.Cons: Extensive cigarette smoke throughout the hotel. Had to put a towel in the crack of door to try to stave it off. Smoking is not allowed in the hotel per Michigan law. I asked the hotel concierge about why it was so smoky. He said that they try to kick out the people who are smoking. Ah, didn't seem like that happened much. Also, there was very little bedding on the bed- all cheap and light linens.
Cons: Seemed a bit odd that even tho the facility has been "Smoke Free" for a few years, my room smelled like an ASH TRAY
Don't be cheap go somewhere elsePros: It was only $40Cons: Everything else
DUMP-ScaryCons: Scared! The motel smelled like weed. In the middle of the night there was a fight. Place needs to be torn down.
Cozy CornerPros: This motel's staff was excellent. Very friendly, accommodating, and helpful. The building was easy to find and provided the necessary amenities, like towels, soap, etc. Cons: Our jacuzzi tub was not working properly. It would fill up, but the jets were not working right. Other than that, amazing motel experience.
Worst experience everPros: NothingCons: Well the fact that we got kicked out over am argument between my fiancee and I which was for like 20 minutes had the police called on us and they didn't even see anything wrong and the front desk clerk (jerk) said we had to go when we heard people arguing and not even that smelled smoke coming from rooms and none of them got kicked out. He was very unprofessional and the day we got kicked out I paid for and he said he couldn't find no record of where my transaction receipt was so I called my bank and let him listen to where I paid for that day and he told me he didn't see it so I told him how was I supposed to get a hotel for the day with 2 young children (2 and 5) and he told me that was my problem... so my fiancee called the same officers that came earlier to come back to verify that we were getting kicked out and he said yes and mysteriously found the receipt that showed I paid for the day... so I did get that money back but he was very insensitive to us... kicked us out for an argument that was just a little yelling I find ridiculous especially when i told him about my kids and fiancee and the best part is I tried to book a hotel down the street and he called the hotels around there and told them not to accept me onto the premises. He was the only issue and his name is Jesse by the way very disrespectful person and should definitely get terminated.
DisappointedCons: It was noisy all night long with people being loud, slamming doors, going up and down hall. Didn't get any sleep. Could not get any adjustment or refund because it was booked online.
Good valuePros: Inexpensive Cons: Flexibility. Inexpensive
You get what you pay fotPros: It's inexpensiveCons: It comes with few amenities other than a bed and TV
