Negative Reviews

Lack of Standard Amenities

Guests find the lack of basic amenities quite disappointing. They say there are no hairdryers, ironing facilities, or coffee maker in standard rooms. You have to upgrade to a superior king room in order to get these amenities. Plus, with cold Michigan winters, an extra blanket comes in handy, but this is not included in a standard room either.

Smoke Smell Permeates Rooms

Rooms smell of stale smoke, even though they are supposed to be non-smoking. Guests can smoke right outside the rooms, evidenced by cigarette bins outside the doors. It seems that smoke smell is then sucked into the rooms, making everything smell of smoke, including towels and linens.

Poor Wi-Fi Connection

Guests say the Wi-Fi signal is nearly nonexistent. Service is annoyingly slow and disconnects frequently. If you rely heavily on Wi-Fi, this can be a serious issue.
