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.

Great place if going to football game

Didn't expect alot of the hotel for the price paid, and expectations held true. Fairly close to campus/stadium however and had a great time at the game!

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.

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.

Nothing fancy, but a great value

The Lamp Post staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was spotless every day. The breakfast is nothing to write home about, but oatmeal and an english muffin or bagel is a fine start to the day. How good do hotel breakfasts typically get, anyway? The Lamp Post was well worth the price and I would definitely stay there again.

Great value

Stayed overnight to attend University of Michigan campus tour - which is very close by. Clean room, though a bit outdated. Friendly staff, even included a continental breakfast!
