    A Fabulous Find in Ann Arbor...

    We stayed for 4 nights in this lovely hotel. The rooms are exactly as described, lovely comfy beds, good WiFi, coffee maker and a fridge. We ate and drank in the bar/restaurant every night, thank you to Linda for your fabulous hospitality. We had breakfast room service on one of the days, this was also excellent. The hotel is located over the road from a Mall and is a short taxi ride away from the university. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay again if in the area.

    Clean hotel located fairly close to University of Michigan campus and downtown Ann Arbor. Too far to walk to campus but only a few minute car ride. Extremely close to the University Sports campus. There are some restaurants located close to the hotel so you don’t necessarily have to drive into Ann Arbor to eat.

    Second night of stay, heating didn't work, so needed room heater. No hot water for shower in the morning also. Had no problems the first day of stay.

    I had no control over the AC and when I asked the staff about it, they said they hadn’t turned it on and all I could do is turn the heater off. Woke up every night sweating.
