Great value for the price

I simply needed a one night stay to rest my head. I choose this hotel because it was the most inexpensive in the area I was searching for. I was impressed that in addition to the standard bed, tv, and bathroom with tub that all hotels offer, there was a fully functional kitchen with full sized fridge and freezer, sink, cabinets, stove and any dishes or utensils that may be needed along with a small table and chairs. The room was clean and my sleep was extremely comfortable. The hotel staff was average- not horrible or excellent, but I only had to interact with them twice- during check in and check out. Also this hotel is located in a large circle surrounding a mall and many restaurants so food and shopping are all within walking distance. Overall great price for space if you're just looking for a comfortable place to sleep.

Good for the price

A pretty average place in all aspects. They were a little skimpy on their "breakfast" and had some shady characters hovering around the front desk area at night. The staff was very nice. Everything was pretty clean.

Football weekend option

We waited too late to book a hotel in Ann Arbor for a football weekend, and had no choice but the Extended Stay - next time we will simply look outside of Ann Arbor. Desk help was indifferent at best, except for Anthony who was very pleasant. Room was never cleaned though we asked for housekeeping and agreed to the additional $3/day for the service (yes, you have to pay extra for housekeeping.) Carperting throughout hotel was filthy, upholstered chair in room equally gross.

Reasonable Price

I enjoyed my stay here as it is located in a convenient spot. The staffs are friendly although not many on site. Internet connection fee is nothing. You should bring your own soap and shampoo. Cleaning is not included, but I think it is OK with this price. Avoid game days as the fee easily doubles.

Only for the desperate

good location completely offset by no frills atmosphere. Hard pillows and mattress, unexplained pipe noise in the middle of the night that woke us. Room smelled like cigarette smoke. Bathroom door would not close. At least it was close to campus.

ESA Not for me

I stayed at the ESA in Ann Arbor while shooting a wedding in the area. So I needed a place with some room to spread my gear out and that would be secure. That was fine with this hotel. However, it was the little things that were really missing here. They did not have shampoo, which was annoying. The room was not clean (hairs in bathroom, lint balls in the carpet, etc). The ironing board leg was bent (so it was very low) and the slip cover kept coming off. When I called, they could not help me. The iron kept randomly turning off, so ironing a shirt and pants took about an hour. Also, they charge for w-fi. Yeah, the same stuff you can get for free at McDonald's, Starbucks, SUPER 8, and Motel 6. I will not be staying here again.

ESA Detroit-Ann Arbor

They did not have my reservation in their system. Thank God I printed a copy of your confirmation and had with me. Desk lady at ESA spent 20 minutes on the phone with [...]and I was finally allowed to register. I didn't need that after a long hot work day and a 200 mile drive to get there.

Reasonable for the price

Spent 4 nights here for a business trip. It is really nice to have the kitchen in the room, as it saves so much money in not having to eat out every night. Just remember to bring your own dish soap, paper towels, and sponge. The staff will not do your dishes, and you must pay $5-$10 for each "room refresh" (replacing towels, making the beds, etc.) I was very disappointed with the wireless internet. They charge you $5 for access for the full length of your stay, which while wi-fi is typically free, I didn't mind paying a few dollars. But as soon as you log in, it hits you up for another $10-$15 for "premium" connection, "or continue on with high-speed light". Yeah, the "high-speed light" was an intermittent near-dial-up-speed connection. It would kick you off every 15 minutes or so. I don't mind paying for good service, but it just felt like nickel and diming. Other than that, it's a pleasant no-frills place to stay. Great location, fairly quiet (at least when I was there). The staff was very courteous at the desk. Also, you get free access to a Bally's fitness center a short drive away. Nice perk.
