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.

Perfect Detroit Stay

I love the Ferry Inn! I have stayed three times now while visiting family in the area. It is a charming historic hotel within close proximity to the Detroit Institute of Arts, Motown Museum, great new restaurants, and more. They have free shuttle service in the area. Fantastic breakfast in the morning and pleasant staff. For a visit to Detroit, it is a great option especially if you are someone who appreciates history and culture.

Perfect for our needs

Our son attended CCS and this is where we stayed while he was in college. It was a perfect location. He now works and lives downtown but when we come to visit we still stay at Ferry Street Inn because it is quiet and comfortable. The breakfast they offer is wonderful and the staff are very nice.

Tiger game awesome alternative to "chain hotel"

Bed and breakfast that accepts kids. Love it! Kids loved the buffet breakfast, great breads, fruit, scrambled eggs ... shuttle (that we weren't even aware of) took us to Tiger Stadium, so we didn't have to drive. Fantastic!

Really interesting

Hotel consists of a collection of old houses. So every room is different to any other. Loved the Breakfast. The free shuttle is brilliant! - and even with tipping is much cheaper that getting a Taxi.

Best Place to Stay in Detroit

The rooms are enomous, unique, and beautifully furnished. The staff is very friendly. You feel like you are staying at your rich uncle's house. The location is convenient to DIA and Wayne State.

Great place to stay in Detroit

We went to Detroit to attend a surprise 75th birthday party for my Aunt Beverly. The party was held at Mario's, a very popular Italian restaurant near downtown. The Inn on Ferry Street was closest to the restaurant, centrally located, easy to find from the airport. They even offered to drive us to the party and pick us up! A very nice B&B experience.

Perfect "mid-town" hotel

The staff was excellent. The breakfast was good (nice waffles). The room was great. The FREE shuttle was fantastic (dropped off at the Coney Island restaurants - picked up after the baseball game). My (teenage) son and I stayed at the well known RenCen hotel for two days prior (for twice the price) and we both agreed that the Inn on Ferry Street was the better place to stay.

Slows Barbeque will deliver to the hotel but why not drive to the original and then go out to where Tiger Stadium used to be. The infield is in situ - including the mound - have your own "Field of Dreams" moment.
