Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reta6961 Lots of pillows. very confortable
Very nice. Enjoyed the pool area. Couldn't get the micro-wave to run at first (it was unplugged). a note on the bathroom wall said to leave dirty towels etc on floor and reusables ones ontowel bar. there was no towel bar. AT ALL. Up at the shower head were instructions how to use the hot & cold water...that should have been closer to the hot & cold controls.. lovely room, nice beds & TV. very pleasant and helpful staff.
Having a restaurant right in the same building was very convenient. little snack area by the check in counter was nice. and a computer room so I could catch up on things back home.
all & all very pleasant stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by downthestreet V. comfy bed, weird electric outlets in bath, don't eat there
Renovation in progress in lobby so no comments, however, restaurant remains a DISMAL atmosphere (dark and unwelcoming) and breakfast from menu, didn't even want to look at buffet, was befitting of a diner but not even that good. Plates are diner quality and the burrito a huge disappointment. The food has never improved over the years and certainly not now. As a A2 resident, I do not like to see a hotel which is basically comfy (small bathrooms are standard due to age of hotel itself) try to pass off as HI Express only to be burdened by a pre-existing restaurant/bar which has never lifted itself to a more sosphisticated clientel.
Summary: Stay here and, altho the elevators take ages, you will be comfortable. Just don't eat here. Have a car? GO somewhere. No car? HMMM. Grocery store & ethnic restaurants around the corner but hours may be limited.

I've been a guest at your Hotel for about 20-years. Your staff is five-star (particularly George at the front desk); your rooms are always clean and comfortable, and your buffet breakfasts were always hot, tasty and fresh. Well, the staff is still five-star, the room was clean and comfortable ... but your breakfast was abysmal. Cold eggs, overcooked sausage and tasteless fruit. Not at all the quality I've gotten used to. Consider upgrading the kitchen to the likes of your new lobby. Thanks.

I'm a platinum member and almost did not stay here due to other reviews. Lobby and part of restaurant is being remodeled....but no problem. Room bathroom is small but all rooms are nicely remodeled and very nice. I'd recommend staying here despite some remodeling. pool and whirlpool was great. Very convenient north Ann Arbor location.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Baggerjim Not So Holiday Inn
I made reservations here because it was close to where my business meetings were to be held. It wasn't a Holiday Inn Express, but I thought it must be almost the same. I was sorely mistaken. The lobby was being remodeled so I was directed to enter through a side door which was well marked. The temporary check in desk was located in a room off the hallway from this entrance. As I entered the room and approached the check in desk, I was unaware that there was a person there until I got up to the desk. I smiled and the young lady spoke without looking up asking "What can I help you with?" I am used to "Welcome to Holiday Inn Express" are you checking in? or Hello how are you? What is your name? That is usually followed by the Priority Gold welcome and instructions and directions around the property (this is the treatment I just received at the Holiday Inn Express in South Bend, IN). The hall carpet looked worn and the wallpaper was pulling away from the sleeping room wall. The beds were very comfortable, but I couldn't get the heating unit to warm up to a comfortable level. The restaurant and bar was moved into one of the ball rooms which had no ambiance. The wait staff was very friendly and the food was good but the coffee was not hot. I didn't bother to come back down for cocktails choosing to stay in my room. The housekeeping staff were well dressed, very friendly and greeted me as I passed. There were some sketchy people waiting around by the exit doors but the staff didn't ask them to leave or appear that they were concerned so I minded my own business. I didn't feel comfortable in this hotel and will not stay here again. I will stay at the Holiday Inn Express across town next time.

We have stayed at this Holiday Inn in the past while seeking treatment for both my mother and my husband at the University of Michigan medical center and found the staff more than friendly and helpful, the shuttle a good service provided, the rooms and bedding comfortable.
Thanks once again for your help. To know that we won't have issues with our hotel during trying times is a comfort!

We stay in holiday inns often and this one was one of the worst. Our dinner was not good and we will not eat there again but because of location we will most likely stay there again. Our room was clean and or waitresswas great but the food was aweful. Not up to par for what we expect from a holiday inn. Also except for our room being ber clean the rest of the place was not nice.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DisappointedBuckeye Poor customer service, terrible room conditions
After calling and scheduling a rollaway in my room, upon arrival the front desk manager argued with me about me not requesting this! The room was in the back of the hotel which looked like it had not been updated since 1970 and smelled bad too. It was very dark and kind of scary at the point of entrance. Glad I was there for only one night.

Whoever owns this Holiday Inn franchise,diffinetely does not uphold the standards found at other Holiday Inns we stay at around the countriy. Our 3-4 day stay was met by a different clerk each day; Each clerk was not too interested in being of service to any of us. No. my pages did not print off on the printer. No, they could not phone ahead to confirm our stay at the next Holiday Inn. No, we would not get a discount with the letter we had from the nearby VA hospital. No, they could not find my gown hanging on the bathroom door after we were asked to change rooms on the third day, No, no one helped us move our belongings. No, no one asked the sinkcronized ice skate teams staying there that weekend to stop running in the halls and hollering and slaming doors. Thankfully, we moved on to the next Holiday Inn to finally have a good nights sleep.

I put in a wake up call, and did not get it and was almost late for my appointment.
I used the shuttle service and called from the hospital at 12:00 for it to pick up me and my party, at 1 PM and had to call again at 1:15 for them to get me. They had forgotten to come

No problem in the restaurant...enjoyed the buffet.
It was a nice experience; helped us relax before all his testing.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lori519 A Little Disappointing
This hotel advises that it is currently under construction, but it needs quite a bit of work. I was greeted upon arrival however, due to computer issues, check-in took at least 15 minutes. The clerk was apologetic, but instead of switching to another computer, we remained at the one with problems and I could not check-in properly. I was not provided with the Internet information and when I tried to call the Front Desk all I got was a busy signal for more than 5 minutes of trying to call.
The area around the bed was spacious, but it had a heater that clicked constantly which made sleep very difficult.
The bathroom was also exceptionally small, to the point that opening the door inward hit against the side of the tub and almost the toilet. The door frame had some bad structural damage and the faucet and shower head for the tub were also in dismal shape.
I chose this location as it was the closest to my friends in Ypsilanti, but having had this experience I would not stay there again.

I would never go back nor would I ever recommend this hotel to anyone. The rooms are completely out of date and small. Our patio view was a pile of their construction material. Staff members always made me feel like I was an inconvenience; from the moment I checked in to the moment I left. I had to ask from house keepers to bring fresh items to the room. Fridge froze ALL food and beverages and then got blamed for it because 'there was no way it could be the hotels fault'. The bar that was attached constantly changed their prices for the same drink during the SAME evening.

Overall my experience was good and met all of my expectations. There was a lot of confusion surrounding the transportation service the hotel offered to the U of M campus.
There was one person at the desk that seemed to be able to answer questions concerning how to schedule a ride and when and if the van was able to transport me to the campus.
The driver on Friday, November 9th, was very friendly and accomodating.
The rest of the weekend I used other transportation to get around since the hotel staff seemed confused and gave out conflicting information on whether the van would be able to transport me to the campus for parent weekend events.
When I made the reservation in September I inquired about transportation and was told this would not be a problem.
I got the impression employees did not want to help guests get to the campus and it was annoying when guests inquired about transportation.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AngelaSquared Unfriendly service response to complaints
Our reservations were set up through the U of M Children's Hospital. We were in town for appointments for my infant son. The hospital rate given to us was very reasonable and it also came with two free breakfast tickets. Our room was clean and the beds were comfortable.
Unfortunately, our room was in a hallway with some sort of athletic team. They were constantly slamming doors, yelling/talking to each other across the hallway, and coming in and out constantly. In addition to this, the knob in the shower popped right off when we went to use it.
In the morning when we went to check out, there was a "trainee" (per her badge) working at the desk. She did not look up at us when we approached the desk. I think she wanted the guy who was working to come back around the corner but he ended up getting on the phone and she finally looked up and acknowledged us. I told her about the shower knob which she wrote on a maintenance log right away. I then told her that I suspected we were in a hallway with a sports team which she confirmed. I told her about the noise we had to deal with and she offered to give me some free breakfast tickets. I told her that I already had those and didn't have time to eat anyway because we had to get my baby to his appointments. She then offered to give us a drink ticket or a ticket to go "through the buffet". I again stressed to her that I did not have time for breakfast. She simply replied "Okay, well thanks," and then moved on to other things.
I was disappointed by this service response. Not sure if we'll go back when we come back to town for more appointments.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by GD2012 Good location - overall experience - fair
Stay at Holiday Inns frequently - not impressed with this one. Location of motel was good for the purpose of our trip. At the time of booking we were told that the pool was closed for repairs. At check in (next day) found the pool fully operational and staff said it was repaired quite some time previously. Obviously reservations were not up to date on the motel status.
No refrigerator or microwave in the room. Small coffee maker tucked in behind TV and ackward to use - had to move coffee maker to floor to use it.
Restaurant was extremely noisy due to the entertainment to the point it was not enjoyable. Restaurant staff told us they didn't know entertainment had been planned and thus understaffed for evening - service was very slow as a result.
Motel dated in areas and needs an upgrade.

For someone recuperating from a visit to the U of M hospital complex it is a great location. The rooms (two 1-night stays) were quiet and convenient to the exits. The bed and chair were comfortable and helped us take it easy after a very busy day.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MixedReview Wedding Reception
My stay was due to a wedding reception that was here. The reception itself was great! The food was good, the servers and bar tenders at the reception were effecient and friendly. However, there were a few of us that stopped into the hotel bar around midnight and we were treated very rudely by the male bartender there. And NO, we weren't drunk & obnoxious. He blantenly ignored my friend who wanted to play Keno. We were told it was last call and that they weren't staying open, we told him there would be others coming from the reception and he basically said "Too bad" I'm closing the bar. We were not the only people there, there were probably about six others that were not with our party. Although we were only served a "last call" drink, there were others at the bar the bartenders continued to serve. We were very dissappointed in being treated this way, since the bride and groom obviously spent a great deal of money to hold their reception here and they were part of the group that was going to be stopping in for drinks. By closing early and refusing to serve us, the hotel lost at least a few hundred dollars.
Other than the rude service in the bar, the hotel was clean, my room was great, the morning breakfast staff were very pleasant and kept our beverages full.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LoveAnnArbor Disappointing Experience at this Hotel
My husband and I were extremely disappointed with our stay at this location.
We were given a room which is on the first floor and near the hotel's ballrooms. I would not expect that a Priority Club Member would be given a room in this location. The first floor rooms are very loud with noise from the parking lots. I was awoken by a garbage truck emptying multiple dumpsters on Saturday morning. Also, since our room was located near a main door to access the public area of the hotel, I was awoken by a group of people talking too loud at 7:00 a.m. in the morning. On Saturday night, there was an event happening in the ballroom. It is normally expected that events and their loud music end no later than midnight. The loud music continued until 1:00 a.m. My husband called the front desk repeatedly and was told that they would handle the issue but it did not happen. Instead the front desk attendant hung up on my husband and then denied doing so. In the morning, my husband was told by the front desk that someone from Corporate would be contacting me to give back reward points for our problems which also did not happen. Also, on Saturday night, we had dinner and drinks at Guy Hollerin's, the hotel's restaurant/bar. There was a cover charge due to a band and dancing which we were not interested in. We wanted to watch the baseball game. Our waiter was unable to handle all of his tables effectively. We had to ask him for refills on drinks and our food order took a long time. I expected that service would not have been this poor.
Avis has a counter at this hotel which was very convenient.
I did receive coupons for hotel restaurant/bar and for complimentary beverage which I used.
When I redeemed coupons for complimentary beverages (bottled water), the employee was very pleasant and thanked me for staying at this location.
Hotel room was semi-remodeled - bathroom had new granite countertop and sink.
Overall, this stay was one of my worst experiences at Holiday Inn hotels and as a Priority Club member, I expect alot more.
