The HJ hotel is under construction, but it didn't bother us at all. It was an average stay, good for what we paid.

Pros - Clean rooms, close to the airport and free breakfast (Bagels, cereal, fruit and a waffle iron)
Cons - the pillows were not comfortable! The air conditioning while it kept the room cold was very loud.

FYI - you will hear the airplanes overhead, but you're close to the airport you have to expect that.

Overall, it was good for the money we paid.

Despite the construction that made the lobby a mess, this location was much better than expected. The room was very clean and comfy, the pool was nice (though very cold), and the breakfast was decent.

My two big issues were:

1. The hallway on the third floor (first and second floor room entrances are on the outside, while the third floor is inside) was dark and filthy. The clerk said he put us in newly renovated rooms, which these were definitely not.

2. The SOLE clerk was so busy that check in took forever. Not only was he trying to check in guests (there was quite a line), he was taking reservations, giving people directions around the airport to their shuttle, talking to the shuttle, and giving out pool towels. I'm sure he was doing much more. He was VERY friendly and courteous, but he needed help! A busy airport location should have two clerks, at least, at such a busy time of the day!

This is my go to spot (Howard Johnson)31119 Flynn Drive Romulus MI.48174. When I want/need to getaway in the city. It's close to DTW with complimentary airport shuttle. But the beds are so comfy & the rooms are clean. You don't hear the airplanes, because you are sleeping soundly. The staff is friendly & knowledgeable so if You need to get some place specific, they will assist You. Need a good cup of coffee & bagel in the morning? Check out the complimentary continental breakfast. The price is right if your like Me frugal but need Quality! Thanks for your time -R.H

Room Tip: The Bussiness Rooms are My Favorites!!! As they are higher up and more spacious.
