This part of Michigan is full of roads with 3-4 lanes on each side and no way to make a left hand turn except by making a u-turn. Also, expect to drive over the speed limit - - no choice unless you what someone driving up on your tail all day long.
As for the Staybridge Suites, I stayed here for 5 nights while attending a training course about 5 miles away. The location is good - - if you like busy shopping area. There is a mall down the road and numerous other strip malls. The area is very busy, but the hotel is set off the main shopping area - - where you will have be able to have a relaxing stay. As for the hotel, the condition is very good. If I can recall correctly, breakfast was served Monday through Friday. Standard hot breakfast - - bacon, sausages, eggs, oatmeal, Danishes, breads, and cereals. It a good start to the day. Tuesday through Thursday the hotel has an evening social - - which is dinner. The quality and the taste are ok. While I was there, they served Salisbury steak, chicken marsala, and chicken lasagna. All were good - - not great, but good. Remember, they were free. The fitness center had a couple of treadmills and a weight machine - - it was better than a lot of other fitness centers that I have seen before. Staff was friendly and helpful.
The hotel has a great location, close to shopping & restaurants (yet away from all the hustle and bustle), and easy on and off the highway. If ever you are in the Utica/Sterling Heights area of Michigan, give it a shot. Enjoy.
