"Staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast area clean and selection fairly good. Room smelt musty and like a smoker had been in the room recently, also smelt of smoke near back enterance. Very hard to get into when traveling north on Huron Church, they need better signage."

"Great hotel but 166.00 for one night stay was a bit outrageous. Especially for a customer who regularly visits this hotel from Ohio."
