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.

In town concert and baseball game

The hotel itself is beautiful. However the staff is lacking. We paid for a waterfront view, didn't get. The say just because you pay for it doesn't mean u get it????? Asked if we should get a discount for not receiving it, they just look at us. Talking to other people, they advised they got a waterfront and didn't pay or request it !!! We never got a key to our room they had to let us in each time. When we arrived back that nite we advised what room we were in they didn't even check ID or anything! Just let us in.

oops...

The staff was great for the most part. They were having air conditioning issues and rooms were being serviced. They gave us our keys, our room was nice but, SURPRISE, the maintenance guy came out from our bathroom that he had just used, he didn't know they'd given us the key yet! He was a nice guy and very sorry but, c'mon! Then we asked that the restroom be re-cleaned and told the front desk what had happened, our light was still burnt out in the bathroom btw when we returned but most appalling was at midnight when we returned our door to our room was open, they didn't close it after refreshing the rest room. They are trying I think and once they pull it together it will be a nicer hotel. They did provide a shuttle to Comerica park and that was very helpful/nice.

1 night out

complications checking-in since I booked through OR- service just the day before & my cc had not cleared yet. Also, called 2 hrs before check -in to verify free shuttle service, was told to ask for this upon check-in. that's what I did. They did not have any one to drive us. They were supposed to call us in our room, but never did. We spent over an hour waiting for a ride which was given by the Man on Duty since no one else was available. other than those things, the room was big, & we enjoyed our stay. could have used more towels & soap & a "thank you for staying with us" upon check out, instead of being Ignored.

Nice quiet place to take the family.

Stayed for the fireworks and loved it. The room was decorated really cute and the bed was so comfy. The view of the river is nice and if you like to people watch the river-walk is right in front. Very friendly and helpful staff. We loved it.
