Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Eric5678 Dirty room in a old hotel
Very old hotel with updated rooms. They may want to change the very old smoke alarms in the rooms. I'm not sure the should be yellow plastic. Room was dirty, parking lot was nasty. Would be nice if the restaurant was not the bar. It would be nice if they would just give you the bottle of water at the front desk and not make you go to the bar to get it. It was warm anyways.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AEP105 High Expectations; Visit Very Disappointing
I give this visit to this hotel only two stars due to my experience during this visit and my recurring frustration with well-intentioned, but somewhat inexperienced hotel staff. Background: During the past four months prior to this visit I had stayed at this hotel on business trips. I had shifted away from another competing property because that other property was under construction. I was plesantly surprised at this hotel...I slept well on those business trips, the hotel also had nice amenities ($5 coupons for food and free drink per day) and most importantly during my multiple business trip stays I noticed a very nice looking indoor/outdoor pool, hot-tub and well stocked video game room. So..after four months of business trips where I didn't have time to enjoy these extra hotel features, I decided I wanted to take my kids to the hotel to give them a chance to have some fun and enjoy the amenities. Well, three days prior to my visit I called the hotel directly (not the reservation line) and asked if the "indoor-outdoor pool" would be open and mentioned the fun I was looking forward to having at the hotel in the game room with my kids. It was a nice chat and everything seemed fine. I made this call because I didn't want to discover anything was "closed" after promising my kids a ton of fun. Well, guess what happened? Yup, we arrived at lunch time and I went down to the pool/game room area and discovered the outdoor pool was closed for the season and the game room was under renovation. I was stunned. The head manager was in there and I shared my story with him. He was surprised at my story. He told me that he always closes the pool for the season and the renovation to the game room had been underway for awhile. I told him about my phone call to the front desk prior to my visit and he expressed regret and offered to let me check-out without penalty. However after driving nearly nine hours to this hotel with my kids, I had no desire to take him up on his offer. He expressed willingness for me to give a name of his staff and he'd inquire how this error could have happened. I simply said it was fine, but was kicking myself for being surprised since I had repeatedly noticed in prior stays that the staff was nice, but always seemed inexperienced. This is a fine hotel to stay on a business trip, especially if you won't be needing anything from the staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 A++ all around!
I arrived around 8 pm at night after a very long train ride. The staff was most helpful when I called from the train station and gave me phone numbers for cabs. When I arrived, check in was swift and efficient. Check out was the same. The room was MOST comfortable!
I will be staying here again!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Marsha4693 Construction noise in next room
the noise was so bad you could not here the TV or talk on the phone.
The staff called them. They end up coming to the room to tell them to quit for the night. Said 6:pm was late enough.
The noise stopped 6:20pm.
The shower head flopped around.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shube Nice hotel, clean, comfortable. Sleep was disturbed by banging doors.
Seems like there should be something that could quiet the heavy closing of doors. To just fall asleep and be constantly awakened by a slamming door is horrible.
It was nice to be offered a complimentary breakfast, however the start time was too late to allow us time to get to the hospital. Would have been nice to at least be able to get coffee, cereal, fruit , a roll or something continental.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MtGGjT Excellent Service if visiting U of MI hospital locations
The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We had appointments at U of MI hospitals the next day and they really helped with making that easy. Very convenient to U of MI hospitals and have free shuttle service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by grampx7 Always very satisfied here
We've stayed several times recently, one to five nights per stay. Staff is always welcoming, friendly, and efficient - that's all staff, not just front desk. Rooms very clean and well supplied. It's an older property, so heating/cooling is a bit hard to control. Great location, free shuttle to UM Hospital if needed, lots of food options nearby.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by queenie1d Room service
I was very disappointed in the timing of room cleaning. We would notify the desk when we were going to be gone for a few hours and it never happened that the room was cleaned. We stayed at this hotel for over 10 days and I thought we would be accommodated but cleaning No.Also we ate dinner in the adjoining restaurant and had a horrible experience. Bad service and bad food.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No1TravelPro "Go Blue"…Clean, Comfortable, and surprisingly luxurious
This property recently had an extensive remodel resulting in very thoughtful upgrades, pleasing decor, and comfortable surroundings.
Surprisingly, this property is a full service venue providing an onsite restaurant which provides live entertainment on the weekends, a flexible menu with reasonable pricing and good food, an onsite full service salon, nice gym, pool (both in and out doors), and rooms that are fully appointed including small refrigerator and microwave oven.
Staff are friendly and accommodating.
Location is walking distance to a grocery store, some small shops, gas station, and pharmacy.
Close to highway for easy access.
Only draw back is that the Ann Arbor area has limited taxi service and hotel does not provide shuttle in/out of town (should add even at a nominal charge). Cabs take up to an hour during busy weekends.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Linwoodgirl Improvements are nice.
The updated rooms and common areas look very nice and the food in the bar/restaurant has improved too. The location is very convenient and the shuttle is a plus. The heating/cooling units are new, but a bit noisy. Staff members are friendly and helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KaciJ Clean Room
My experience here has been by far the best. This hotel was extremely clean with a very comfortable bed. The only negative thing that I experienced is the water that has a large enjoy sticker on it, in the fine print it charges you $3.50 for it. I felt somewhat fooled. However, overall it was a great experience.

Staff very friendly and courteous. Room clean and neat. Liked having refrigerator in room.
Only disappointment---size of bathroom. Way too small and had no towel bars to hang used towels on.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ross77 Room amenities
The recently remodeled rooms are very good. However, the bathrooms could use a couple of towel racks with which to hang towels and face cloths. None were found, only a small hook on the back of the door.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jandw From Unsatisified Customer to Satisfied Customber
We stayed at this site before and had a bad experience. The GM contacted us and asked us to give them a second chance. WE are glad we did. They had everything I have grown to expect from the Holiday Inn Brand. The only complaint I have is they need to update their shower heads to the ones that all the other Holiday Inns have. The staff did a great job, and house cleaning went above and beyond our expectations. Very good stay. Will recommend this property to our friends. Thanks again.!!!!

My wife and I used the Holiday Inn for both the block of rooms for our guests and our own room on our wedding night. The service was excellent, and the staff friendly and helpful in organizing shuttles to and from the Botanical Gardens.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jennifer400 Great choice for a U of M parent
I stayed here for parents' weekend 2013 (mid-October). The staff was very friendly and welcoming at the front desk. My room was ready a little early, which was great and I was pleasantly surprised by the size. The shuttle to the football game was an added benefit which made the stay complete. The bed was very comfortable and it was quiet, the two most valuable things when you need rest after a long, busy day.
I will definitely return to this hotel, as the locale and accommodations were just right.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ellen725 Overall, everything quite good.
Everything quite good. Would recommend improving the breakfast buffet. Not very good or very appealing to the eye. Ordering breakfast directly off the menu is much better. Also, attention needs to be paid to the exercise room. A good selection of equipment, but it needs servicing and a hotel staff that knows how to operate it to assist the guests.

Thermostat didn't work... toilet didn't work. Pretty sad when you have to take cups of water to fill the toilet tank to be able to flush it. Shower water pressure is fine, if you like your skin blown off.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ellen725 Overall good experience, especially for a Holiday Inn
Location is not so desirable, but essentials are here: hair salon, nail salon, drug store, good grocery store, mail store, a few ethnic eateries next door, decent restaurant in hotel. Hotel offers free shuttle locally contingent on availability. Overall, good hotel choice for this area.

The HI Express near the U of M hospital is perfect for my needs. The shuttle service is great.
The remodeling looks great. The only complaint I have is that there is no ventilation in the bathrooms. The switch for the fan is blanked off in every room I've stayed in. You are really trying to satisfy your customers and I think it would be a worthwhile investment.

After a full day at U of M hospital, we were tired. The check in was fast and smooth. Our room was at the right temp and we slept very well. The next morning we had the breakfast buffet and it was very good and again fast for us. We were also asked if we needed transportation to the hospital. Nice to know that there is a shuttle service if needed.

I had one heck of a time finding a place to stay while my mom was in the U of M hospital. I called the hospitals advocate number and they hooked me up here and got my room for about 1/2 price. Plus a free breakfast buffet. The beds were very comfortable, room very clean with a microwave and fridge. Highly highly recommend your stay at this Holiday Inn. A great big thank you to the staff.

I enjoyed my stay at the Holiday Inn for many reasons. My room was very attractive and comfortable. I had plenty of towels, and hot water. The bed was very comfortable and I enjoyed the closeness of other stores and restaurants that were surrounding the inn.
I had a very pleasant stay.
