Best Western of Whitmore Lake

Reviewed 28 February 2014

Drove 9 hrs. & no one at desk upon arrival at 8 p.m. Waited 20 minutes for a room key, ALONE! Noone in lobby. Room smells of vomit & diesel. Couldn't exit property because semi-truck blocked entry. Had to use towel on door threshold for temperature control. Complained of semi noise to front desk, and told there was no way to find the driver who left their truck running. Really? I've returned home for a funeral, and my compact car plate number was provided to you upon check-in as standard procedure but you can't find your semi-driver? If you're a truck-stop, advertise yourself as such and BE HONEST!!

The staff at checkin was very friendly and helpful with all of our requests. The rooms were clean at check in and the beds were very comfortable with duvets. Bathrooms were basic.

The pool is beside the hotel lobby but you have to walk outside to get to it - pack slippers and warm clothes!!

We stayed for the local pond hockey tournament so the location was perfect for walking to and from the lake.

This is a wonderful Property with an outstanding staff. The rooms are clean, comfortable and a great value. They have a new Breakfast Room which is Very Nice! They also have a wonderful pool and the staff will always open it in the morning whenever I ask so I can swim my laps. The Staff goes Above and Beyond to make your stay enjoyable . I have never had any issues with this property This is where I always stay when traveling to Detroit.
