Rooms need updating

Floor tile in bathroom and tile grout dirty. Walls adjacent to sink had toothpaste splatter. Carpeted floors squeak noticeably. Thin walls--can hear conversations in adjacent room. Staff very accommodating. Treats left out in dining area. Breakfast nice touch but eggs cold two consecutive days.

Great Stay

The Inn was beautiful. The homes were gorgeous. You felt as though you were living in the past with a décor to match. The fireplaces, light fixtures, woodwork, windows were gorgeous. Private parking in back. Felt very safe. Thanks!

Very charming hotel that is more like a bed & breakfast

This is a real gem in Detroit. I loved their shuttle service that took me to restaurants and to the baseball game! Also, excellent breakfast every morning. I highly recommend the Inn on E. Ferry Street.

Lovely Boutique Hotel

Front desk staff was welcoming and friendly, as was the bell person. Good location for a game at Comerica park, they offer free shuttle service within 5 miles. I had a clean and cozy room in one of four Victorian mansions, each had a porch with table and chairs to relax. The complimentary continental breakfast was fantastic, a great way to start the day. Overall an excellent experience at a great value!

We found this gem last year and decided to return this year for another vacation. Wonderful room once again. Decorated beautifully and very clean. The breakfast is wonderful and the service is outstanding. The shuttle will take you within five mile radius and the driver is prompt, courteous and friendly. We will be returning again next year (hopefully the Tigers will win).

Great Place!

This is the 3rd time at this B&B style place. There are 5 houses that have rooms in each. Beautiful facitlities and comfortable atmosphere. Located around the corner from the DIA (art museum). Shuttle available all the time that takes you where you would like to go...within 5 mile radius. Very convenient to go downtown and back.

Nice Location

The shuttle service was wonderful. That was the best part of the deal. All of our drivers were nice. Our room was ok. They need to update the carpeting, it was a bit old. The room in general needs some updating. A nice hard wood floor would make a great improvement. The bed was comfortable and bedding was nice though. The breakfast was good too. The staff was great! Being able to walk to the museums was a plus.

A Detroit Gem

We had a very enjoyable stay. It was a nice change of pace to stay at a hotel with such rich history. Our room was in the Pungs House. Clean, very friendly staff, good breakfast - and amazing American architecture. We would stay here again.

Lovely gem near the Detroit Institute of Arts and Wayne U

Great bed and breakfast. Breakfast was great. Good selection of fruit, grains, and a basic egg tray. They put me up in the third floor of one of the 4 houses that make up this group of B&Bs on Ferry St. Creaky floors are all I can complain about...not really complain, it all added to the charm of the Victorian era place. Modernized enough to be comfortable with TV and modern bathroom. Wifi included free. Staff was fantastic as well. I came to work at the DIA and I wasn't disappointed in its proximity. Bear in mind that the midtown area of Detroit is kind of rough; some nice neighborhoods intermingled with burned out or boarded up houses. Felt fairly safe on Ferry Street. The proximity was also its weakness in that there weren't very many options for dining. Overall, the Inn on Ferry St exceeded my expectations.
