Lamp Post Inn Review

Lamp Post Inn is a good deal on price. The rooms are fine and the staff is friendly and useful. The primary negatives for this establishment are the location and wireless Internet. First, the location is a bit far from campus and you should plan to walk around 30 minutes if you do not have other transportation. Second, the wireless Internet access was a bit slow. It's fine for checking email or other basic tasks. Overall, I recommend Lamp Post if you're a budget conscious traveler who doesn't mind walking or has a car.

A great value for the price. Having the refrigerator and microwave was wonderful. The location was great. It is an older hotel and shows the wear, but it was very clean and comfortable. For the cost it was a terrific value.

Lamp Post Inn

This hotel is in a perfect location for a visit to the University of Michigan. It was inexpensive, and the staff was very friendly in actually taking the time to offer directions and providing addresses that I could later plug into my GPS. The wireless internet was efficient, I had at least 3 or 4 wireless-connection signals to choose from in my room alone (provided by the hotel). The breakfast was more of a European-style breakfast, so if you want a big meal there is a Denny's right down the street and many other dining opportunities near by. The televisions provided in the rooms had plenty of channels to choose from. I really liked the free mini-fridge and microwave in the rooms. That was a pleasant surprise. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to the business traveler or prospective U of M Graduate Student, in other words, for those who simply need a good place to rest their head at night.

Great Customer Service, Nice Motel

Overall, This is a nice motel. They accommodated our super late check-in and the staff was awesome!The room was just fine, and quaint. The only down side was, if people were talking outside, then you could easily hear them. Not so big of an issue. I would stay there again! Very reasonably priced!

Friendly and comfortable

I loved the Lamp Post Inn. The staff were very friendly and the place was spotless. It's an older (but well-maintained) motel; the shower was old-school tile. The wi-fi was faster than any other economy motel I've stayed at. Trader Joe's is right next door, but other than that the only other restaurant I saw was a sandwich shop. About 7 minutes by car from the UM campus. There was not a hairdryer or an iron in the room, but I didn't ask if they were available at the front desk. It felt like a place that people cared about. Much better than many an economy motel I've stayed at.
