It was what it was

Basically we were in town on business and needed a cheap place near the airport, and that's what we got. The rooms didn't smell, we didn't see any bugs. They did stack smelly trash near the side entrance, but other than that it was ok. They had good free wifi, there is a Big Boy right next door and a McDonald's across the street. I would stay there again if I had to and was on limited funds. Not bad, not good, just ok, it was fine.

Not even worthy for the shuttle

I chose this hotel because it says that it has free shuttle to the airport. When I got there I was told that I have to call 40 minutes before. So it wasn't good if you have to wake at 4 am just for calling to have the shuttle ready. The hotel itself was dirty, smells like old and smoke together. I didn't even want to take a shower because of its apparience.

Bathroom

Check in was fast, but I also felt like the clerk didn't care one way or another. Toilet appeared to be from a elementary school, It was very small.

Should Have Gone with a Chain Hotel

I was looking for a low budget hotel by the DTW airport so I could pick someone up early the next morning. While the Magnuson Hotel hit the mark with a low cost, I would have rather paid $5-10 more to stay at a chain hotel. Cons: - The hallways reeked of smoke. - Only one available outlet in main sleeping area. - Felt old and outdated. - Felt like it could use a good clean. - Short shower head. Pros: - Extremely close to the airport. - Lowest price in that area.

Got what I paid for

I needed the room for a place to stay for 6 hours before my flight. The bed springs were terrible, one of the worst hotel beds I've slept on. Shower was dirty and wouldn't drain. Check in and out was very easy though. I needed a cheap room and this definitely was that.
