Toilet was very low, hard for older people to get up and down from, tub tile needed repair work, tile behind bath door was filthy, hinges were rusty causing the door being hard to open and shut, Walls were so thin it sounded like the people next to us were in the same room, 5 electrical recepticals didn't work, need a comfortable chair to sit on. freezer was so packed with ice it couldn't be used, very old smell came out of the fridge, Just a few things we noticed, one drawer in the dresser was actually glued shut

This is the second year we have stayed at this hotel. When we checked in Leeandra had us on the second floor. I explained to her when I made the reservation I requested we be by the pool she moved us no questions asked. We were so impressed when we walked into the room and were Impressed with the renovation. Whatever we needed they were more than accommodating no matter. My sister is in the process to buying a new home and had some documents she needed printed they did it no questions asked. We will most assurdedly stay there next year when we come down to Detroit Tiger spring training. this motel is very close to Joker Marchant stadium. If your looking for a Hampton Inn type of hotel this is not for you. If you are looking for something comfortable and accommodating in close proximity to everything this is for you.
