Guest reviews

  • Older travelers

    Great accommodations, atmosphere and location. Shuttle service added convenience plus a knowledgeable driver shared some local history as we drove to our destinations. I would highly recommend to anyone needing to stay in the area.

  • Older travelers

    Our stay was enjoyable. It was closed to ccs to see our daughter. Shuttle service was wonderful. This was our third time staying at the Ferry Inn and never had a problem.

    I was wondering why the air conditioner wasn't on but was told since weather has been unpredictable wasn't sure when to turn it on. They sent portable fans and hotel windows was very comfortable. We were still happy.

  • Single

    The building was mansion built in 1890 but updated in 2001, so a lovely mix of quite old and new and clean. Pretty quite too. The staff was excellent, including the free shuttle with a 5-mile radius -- it was never more than 10 minutes wait going or picking me up wherever, the drivers were friendly and interesting, and it saved me a lot of cab fare over 4 days.

    It would be more convenient if the fitness facility were onsite and included, but it is only a short shuttle ride away and only $8 per visit, so not too bad.

  • Older travelers

    The accommodations and staff were excellent. Unfortunately Due to an illness I was unable to stay the two nights as planned but the staff handled my leaving early professionally and it was appreciated.

  • Older travelers

    I had booked the Queen suite (two rooms) for my husband and I for Valentine's Day weekend. When we arrived I provided my online confirmation sheet to register. They could not locate my reservations then downsized us to a room with a queen size bed and jucuzzi (which was simply a bathtub. Breakfast was nice.

    Did not have a room for us despite I reserved one online and confirmed it with a printout of the same.

  • Group of friends

    Cozy place, great idea the placement of the rooms in small houses a long the street. Staff was friendly and helped me in finding the area of the town I 've seen in a friend's picture. Great breakfast.

  • Older travelers

    Everything about this Inn, the staff was great, the food was good, the free shuttles to our concert and back and the price was decent too. Great place to stay. Feels like a bed and breakfast however it's not at all. The bed was comfy too.

    nothing the place is great to stay at.

  • Older travelers

    We loved everything. The room was great. The location and setting was perfect. I will stay again for sure. The shuttle provided by the hotel is a big plus. All of the staff was friendly. I actually proposed to my girlfriend in one of the main rooms. She said yes !! Then it was off to the Kid Rock concert at Comerica Park. Detroit and The Inn on Ferry St. Rock !!

  • Group of friends

    Great location in the heart of the cultural center. Some confusion about our reservations and arrangements. It would help if you had a map or drawing of your units on line and at the desk on arrivl so arrangements could be beter understood, for a group. This is meant to be helpful.

  • Older travelers

    Comfortable, updated vintage accommodations. Quiet place with good breakfast. Staff is terrific and responsive; they want you to be comfortable.

    The worst thing about the Ferry Inn is their wireless internet - it's very spotty and slow. It fades in and out so you never have a good consistent connection. A little too much perfume used by the cleaning crew.
