Rooms need updating

Would not recommend Sun, Nov 16, 2014
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.

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!

Would recommend Sun, Jul 6, 2014
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.

Entertainment hint

Baseball game - walk home and stop at the museums!

Lovely Boutique Hotel

Would recommend Wed, Jul 2, 2014
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!

Belle Isle park is a short drive away with beautiful scenery!

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).

Dining

The Traffic Jam--wonderful food with homemade breads, cheese and ice cream.

Nice Location

Would recommend Fri, Jun 13, 2014
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.

Dining

Joe Muer's Seafood had a great view of Canada. Wonderful seafood too.
