“What? No high speed?”
Reviewed 24 January 2009

Booked a non-smoking room with two double beds several weeks ago. Our room, on the 3rd floor, was NOT labeled as non-smoking though it did not have any smoke smell so we chose not to make a fuss about it. Room itself was nicely decorated and seemed clean. Our top security latch didn't quite close but the deadbolt and main locks did so again, we chose not to make a fuss (didn't notice it until after 10 p.m.) The shower and amenities were nice. The curved out design of the shower gave extra room which you don't always find on a shower stall.

The website advertised that there were refrigerators and microwaves in all the rooms. Ours didn't have either, though it did have an iron and ironing board.

We walked down our hallway at first arrival and there was a strong smell of pot which was thankfully gone by the time we reached our room.

We visited the pool/hot tub area and were glad to have brought down our own towels as there were none there though the information given us at check in told us there would be. The pool area was monopolized by a large group of very loud young people who were poorly supervised - the adult(s) kept leaving to let other people in from the outside door. They also brought in about a dozen pizzas and beverages despite the "no food or drink" rule.
The hot tub was ok, not too powerful and seemed kind of worn out.

Worst for me (since I don't have high speed at home) was that the high speed internet didn't work. It is through satellites and when the weather is not good (it was snowing in the evening) the satellites don't work well. Even the "reset" that was offered by the front desk clerk when I came down to find out what was going on didn't help.

Continental breakfast in the a.m. was adequate, nothing special but we got enough.

Oh, one last thing - you're charged $1 for the use of the safe and it's up to you to tell them if you didn't use the safe so they will take the charge off your bill.

This hotel (mostly) worked for the night but I wouldn't want to be there for a longer stay.

  • Liked — Location was convenient to our training seminar - also liked the design of the shower
  • Disliked — NO HIGH SPEED INTERNET AVAILABLE WHILE WE WERE THERE

It's an average place. We didn't have any problems with them. It's not a perfect place though. Our room was clean, sheets, towels were okay. front desk were friendly and the breakfast was acceptable. The price is reasonable for what you get.

Reviewed 25 October 2008

We decided to stay at the Sleep Inn because it was in what we consider as one of the safer areas in Flint (several hotels and restaurants in the same area), and because it is in the Choice Hotels family and we figured they wouldn't rip us off.

Room was very small but suited our needs - bed was comfortable enough, shower had excellent water pressure and very hot water. The entire unit, including the bathroom, was extremely clean. Staff was very friendly, check in/out was smooth and quick.

However, have to agree with the other reviews - walls and ceilings are indeed paper thin. Had to leave the noisy A/C on all night to drown out some of the noise. Don't understand how Choice Hotels could skimp so badly on insulation.

Would probably stay here again...we felt safe and the area was great for food & shopping. We'll just remember to bring earplugs next time!

I made the mistake of staying theior before I read reviews, it hasn't changed in 3.5 years. Very thin walls, loud hallways, bad mattress and poor breakfast. Friendly staff and not far from good restaurants and a nice mall. Truly a hotel were you get what you pay for.

At $50 the price was right. Walls are very, very thin and you can hear everything in adjoining rooms. Very weak continental breakfast (donuts and some stale muffins). Probably has the best water pressure in the shower of any hotel that I've stayed at of late (including full-service properties priced many times higher).

Inside rooms are a plus! Clerk was very nice and friendly. Rooms were clean. Needed dataport which was available but had to stretch phone across room to desk. Probably could have gotten a nicer hotel for less money. Walls are paper thin.
