Great value, more than meets basic needs

Very pleasantly surprised by pricing and amenities. I have stayed in many 5-star hotels that had less room to move about, and no way to access snacks except through the expensive hotel=supplied stuff in their refrigs. We landed on this Inn because every thing was booked for Univ of Michigan graduation. I was a bit concerned at first, that being an Inn, the front door opened directly to the outside,but chhosing the second floor made it feel more secure.

Lamp Post Inn

Clean, comfortable, and warm during 39F weekend. Only gripe is that there is no iron or ironing board in the room. The only option is a crummy warped desktop ironing board which is of little use.

Lamp Post Inn took care of us!

It was a basic, no frills stop-over. Room was clean and heat was on before our arrival, which was late. Staff hit just the right note with that gesture on that cold evening. Standard cold breakfast foods along with bland hot coffee were offered in a clean dining area. Room includes a small fridge.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There's a Trader Joe's grocery store tucked behind the Inn so a healthy snack or stocking up with hard-to-find items is a bonus. It's easy to miss that it's there: has a low-profile sign out front.

A good Hotel

Room was clean and neat. Smelled fresh. WIFI worked well enough. Considering the price of the other hotels in the area, this is a good value for the money.

Older motel but clean and quite.

An older motel with the basics. Had refrig, micro and coffee maker. TV had plenty of channels. Older TV. If looking for good value and don't need the extras or more modern furnishings, this will do. It was quiet and had a good two nights sleep.

Excellent Value

I have every intention to stay at these accommodations again. The value is exceptional, even if it isn't the swankest h/motel in the business. If you want your hotel to be the destination, look somewhere else. However, if what you want is a clean room/bed/shower at a good price, you'll have a hard time finding anything better in the area.
