My first impression was - "Not safe" The hotel is not in a good part of town, characters were hanging around and the lobby had security cameras and security doors to protect hotel employees. We had to wait while they finished cleaning our room. Got into room and had to leave because the cleaner was overpowering - which is amazing because, it was filthy. The sink and tub appeared clean, but the floor left my socks blackened and the bed covers had black dirty smudges everywhere - even had toothpaste smeared on one. I had to kill two spiders - one of which was a BLACK WIDOW! The room had some large winged bug already squished into the peephole on the door. Other not so lovely features included: fun house mirror, booby-trapped sink (splashed water directly on person standing in front of it), HARD bed, wet toilet paper (a real joy), and absolutely no amenities (not even a clock or kleenex). Needless to say, we did not enjoy our stay. :-(

Room Tip: Don't stay here.

I'm giving this Motel 6 four stars, keeping in mind that it's a Motel 6 so there's a severe limit on how good or luxurious it can be, OTOH being a Motel 6 the price was very good.

What makes this Motel 6 distinctive is that its architecture is different from the usual 2-story boxlike structures that characterize most Motel 6's that I've seen. Single story, more sprawling (so no stairs, but longer walks to get to the office, pool, etc.). But it was the interior (at least of my room; I didn't see other rooms) which was the most unique: furnishings and decor which were a bit post-modernist and a bit Crate-and-Barrel-ist. E.g. instead of an ordinary towel rack there were brightly colored ... I guess you'd have to call them shelves or slots, they looked more like decoration than like utilitarian pieces, but they were quite functional. The whole room was like that: unusual or innovative design and decor. Again, nothing ultra-fancy but certain out of the ordinary most especially for a Motel 6. I wonder if the motel had been designed and built by someone else, and got bought and converted into a Motel 6 -- but with the interiors left intact.

The location was good for people wanting a cheap place to stay in Ann Arbor, assuming they have a car. It's two and a half miles from the campus of the Univ of Michigan -- so an easy drive but a very long walk. It's next to an office park and behind a McDonalds ... there were one or two other restaurants pretty close nearby, maybe a convenience store, not much else. It's also close (1.6) miles to Ann Arbor Airport, but I don't know if many people use that airport. Over 20 miles from Detroit Airport -- but Detroit itself is about that distance from Detroit Airport.

This Motel 6 has been recently remodeled. With all the hype about stains on carpets and bedspreads in motels in general, I guess these designers decided to dispense with those items altogether. Along with some IKEA-esque furnishings and appointments, our room had the feeling of some kind of cross between an RV and a college dorm room. It was quite spacious, however, and had plenty of outlets for charging various electronic things that needed charging. It's quiet, the staff is friendly and the decor grew on me. The beds are new, and very comfortable. The shower was great. There was a fridge and microwave, and it was easy to stay here for a couple days while getting my Little Sister squared away at U of M just a couple miles up the road.

For $50 including a day's wifi and tax, this was a great value stop over on our way from Toronto to Chicago.

The room was very clean and bright and the beds were comfortable, although certainly not luxurious.

It was very quiet and we got a good night's sleep.

Check-in was quick, although the staff member was on autopilot and barely managed a smile.

At this Motel6 I got more than my money's worth.
