Disappointing stay

I was very disappointed in my stay at Robert's Riverwalk. Upon check-in, the staff was not friendly or welcoming in any way. Our room needed much work. Mold in the shower and on the window sills, giant holes in the blanket and wallpaper peeling off the walls. Gross! Most hotels/restaurants in the area have a shuttle to downtown attractions, this hotel does not.....major drawback! While the setting on the river is gorgeous, this hotel needs a LOT of work. I would never stay there again.

Can't beat the location and price. Walk around the corner and take the Andrews bar bus to JLA/Ford Field or Comerica.

Worst Hotel Ever!!!!

The only thing nice about this hotel was it's location. debit card was charged after stating I wanted to pay by cash. Moved three times with several problems in each room...room not available at check in, headboard fell off the wall and shower was stopped up, furnace not working, shower and sink stopped up and key to the room not working, no clean towels or washcloths at 9AM in the morning, had to place 3 calls to the front desk to ask for towels and wash cloths, but instead sent the maintenance man to the room stating the furnace was not working again instead of housekeeping. . Had breakfast at the hotel restaurant, had to locate the waiter after 15 minutes of waiting for someone, General Manager disrespect, rude, unprofessional, lacked communications skills and . At check out, I and another hotel guest had to wait until hotel staff had a meeting to check out. No credit was given of any kind and I had to ask for a receipt. None of the charges on the invoice made any sense. Hotel Staff was unprofessional, very young, weren't able to work the computers, print invoices or activate the key cards to the hotel rooms properly. I would never go back.

Roberts Riverwalk Hotel

I loved that this hotel was on the river and that you could see Canada from the room. Upon first glance, the hotel looked great from the outside. Walking in, the lobby was only halfway lit, entire rooms were dark and most of the lightbulbs were burnt out. Once in the room, the handles on the dresser were falling off, the drawers wouldn't open, there was no book describing where things were in the hotel, area nightlife, etc. The tub was missing the drain cover and had large chips of the glaze missing. The shower head was terrible. Going down to the complimentary breakfast included 2 cookies, a drop of juice, and not even enough coffee for 1/2 a cup. All around, a very disappointing experience.

Disappointed

Based on the photos of this place, I was looking forward to our stay. Here's the good: • Old hotel with charming appearance/character, room with the high ceilings was cool. Here's the bad: • Parking lot is HORRIBLE. Pot holes galore, can't see the lines to park, too small if they are having an event, not well lit in all areas at night. Prepare to hike with your bags. • We stayed over a weekend and they had a concert/event in the back each nite. Entertainment and sound faced our room so it was like we were AT the concert. Called the front desk to see when it would end, nobody answered. How does a hotel staff not pick up their phone?? It ended about 10:45 pm and since we were there for business, this was unacceptable. Apparently they only care about the concert guests, not the ones who paid for a room. • There is no menu or listing of amenties in the room anywhere. After searching online, there is a "bistro" in the basement, be prepared for small bar selection, overworked bartender and ear piercing R&B music so that you cannot hear yourself talk. • Carpets are badly stained in the hallways and our bathtub was stained as well. We will not be staying here again.
