“Old Hotel”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

I use this hotel 5-6 times annually, it's really a older facility. The layout is poor, looks like several additions put together over the years. And then there is the elevators, if you use them, you will spend half of your stay waiting on them. The rooms are average fare, been in better, and worse. The food in the restaurant is sub par, the breakfast buffet is just above pig slop, avoid it.

Room Tip: First floor room, avoid the elevator.

We booked a weekend to visit our daughter and attend a Michigan football game at The Big House. This hotel was a good Holiday Inn. Given the substantial increase in rates to accommodate an "event" weekend, Holiday Inn hotel management should have used the extra revenue to have an adequate number of employees to handle the larger than normal crowd. Waiting significantly extra time to check in made us see "red," not "blue." It seemed that all hotel services were delayed because of the full house. The usual things room accommodations, cleanliness, were consistent with an average Holiday Inn - passable nothing spectacular.
The annoying issue is the misleading banner: Holiday Inn/University of Michigan. The main campus is at least a 20 minute ( and more likely a 30 minute) car/cab ride from the hotel. It is not at all walkable. The hotel staff tried to justify their misleading moniker by saying that the Inn was close to the North Campus -the Siberia of UM housing for unfortunate freshmen and the engineering school. There is a shuttle (if the van has not broken down) and a goodly number of cabs. But still it is way far from the main campus. Well, as our first trip to AA it was a learning experience - don't trust the hotel advertising banner.

This hotel is a good option if you are looking for an Ann Arbor hotel near the I-94 junction. The hotel was clean and included free breakfast, which was pretty good. The hotel is a few minutes from downtown Ann Arbor, but it is much less expensive than the downtown Ann Arbor hotel options. In sum, I would rate this a solid hotel, but not a great option without a car.

I’m always a bit leery when a property has a new look when you enter. The lobby has a fresh new look. The halls and rooms have been redecorated. While there are still some signs of the bones of this hotel, they’ve done a nice job reworking things to look fresh. The carpeting and the chair and ottoman in my room were a fresh new look. The bathrooms are still the original walls (read: it’s small in there) but the new fixtures make things nice even if they no longer offer the heat lamp I appreciate in the winter. The bath needed some attention from maintenance and that was handled quickly. I also commend the staff for how well they dealt with the 300 (I was told) people there for a hockey trournament. I reviewed the restaurant separately since it really is the same as it was before . . . a disappointment. The freshness and location still make this a property good for any visit but especially if you are needing to visit Concordia University, just one exit south.

Room Tip: The backside of the property is wonderfully quiet . . . no noise carry over from the pool area at al...

We stayed at this Holiday Inn because it was on the list of Big Bear Hockey Tournament hotels.
I always brace myself to be treated as second class citizens by hotels when with a hockey group.
This was one of the best experiences in the 5 years we have been playing hockey. The staff was always professional and accomadaing. The breakfast buffet was nice and quite a positive change from most complimentary continental breakfasts. The kids all had a great time and at no point were they made to feel unwelcome like some other hockey tournament sponsored hotels.
Would love to stay here again.

Room Tip: There are outside rooms and inside rooms that face the pool. Be aware when asking for quiet or not...

This hotel is the best one I have ever been in.The staff is all extremely friendly and very helpful.The hotel is extremely beautiful and well set up.Absolutely loved the pool/whirlpool area.The hotel shuttle van was a huge help for me and my family,as we didn't know our way around the town and it took the stress out of driving in a strange city.The restaurant has good food,prices were reasonable,and had great service.The room itself was amazing and we couldn't have topped it anywhere else in our opinion.

Room Tip: The fourth floor is quieter.

Great hotel to stay at. The rooms were clean and it was pretty quiet even though it is close to U of M. It's not too far from the dowtoen area which makes it easy travel and it does have some restaurants across the street as well. Would definitely stay here again.
