Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BarbCL Graduation weekend
Nice they served breakfast a hour early on Sat - very customer focused
Appreciated free breakfast and coffee/drink tickets
Nice the commuter bus started from this location on Sat.
Elevator was TOO SLOW....exceeded ADA requirements
While I understand free markets, mark up for graduation weekend is "tacky".... don't really care "if everyone" does it.... company policy should prohibit....local rates should stay local rates.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deborah55 Great northside location and value
Stayed on May 3 and 4 for UM commencement and it worked out well thanks to the UM shuttle bus to the stadium. Our room was comfortable and quiet. The breakfast voucher is a good value...you can take from the buffet or order off the menu and I enjoyed being able to walk to a nearby grocery store and several small restaurants. Mostly I want to praise the housekeeping staff (Thank You, Elizabeth!) for finding some items I had left in a drawer and keeping them safe for me til I could pick them up. Thanks to the front desk for tracking them down so I could pick them up before leaving town.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by virginiamnvisitors Great service
Had a marvelous stay when my daughter graduated from the University! I really enjoyed all staff when I met them in the hallways! Housekeeping did a marvelous job of keeping our room intact during our whole stay; and the ladies are super sweet! The restaurant always had wonderful food. The only disappointment that we had was after graduation, we were going to gather family and friends to eat at the restaurant to cap off a full, exhausting day. We were asked to pay the $5 cover charge; so we declined and went elsewhere. We would have preferred to stay right on the premises, but couldn't justify a cover charge to eat!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by graduationgrandma Ann Arbor vist for Graduation
It was graduation weekend and my king size bed turned into two twin beds by the time I got there. The hotel must have given them away.
The staff's opinion was it happens! I had changed my reservation so they said when you do that anything can happen, without them notifying you.
Discovered how to use hot water in shower after getting scalded and asking maintenance to demonstrate how to operate.
Restaurant was closed when we wanted to go there. Surprising since it was such a busy weekend for Ann Arbor.
Gym equipment was out dated.
The renovation was nice and one of the managers gave us two coupons for a glass of wine to try and make nice, but I'm not sure I would stay there again. I have stayed at other hotels in the area with better service that also have been renovated.

Have stayed at this hotel in the past and always had an excellent stay. This last stay was just as good. I had to be up early for an appointment. I went to bed early. The hotel was quiet and I had no trouble falling to sleep. The bed was comfortable and I sleep the alarm went off.
I will defiantly stay there again and recommend it to friends.

The renovated lobby and room looked really nice. The Internet wi-fi connection is very slow, though. This needs to be improved.

My granddaughter had surgery at U of M, The staff and services that are offered to guest that have family in the hospital is wonderful. The shuttle service to and from hospital, the complimentary breakfast, and the rooms having a micorwave, refrigerator, and coffee pot made my stressful days much more comfortable. Thank you Holiday Inn Ann Arbor

On arrival to our room my wife went to use the bathrooms and she saw that the toilet had not been flushed and there was human feces still in the toilet. We did not report it to the hotels staff since she was going to the hospital for surgery and she flushed the toilet as she did not want the waste in there any longer than necesary.

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

My husband had an apt. at UM. This hotel met our needs. We
were able to use the jacuzzi and relax....nice, clean, comfortable
bed and room. We received meal tickets with our reservation.
No problem in the restaurant...enjoyed the buffet.
It was a nice experience; helped us relax before all his testing.
It was also nice to have a "Medical " discount via UM...there is a
partnership with some of the closer hotels for patients and

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.
