Great location close to Detroit Institute of Arts

Charming Victorian homes make for a memorable stay

Negative Reviews

Not a lot of extra space in some of the rooms

Dissatisfied visitors report that a number of the rooms here are a bit too compact for comfort. They mention that this is an old property and the smaller rooms reflect this. Guests also say the bathrooms are quite pokey too, with small shower cubicles and limited counter space for toiletries.

Try to avoid the attic room if you can.

Right at the top of the hotel there used to be an attic, but now it's been converted into a room. The hike up the stairs is enough to put your off, but also the room is dreadfully small too.

This hotel is starting to feel tired and dated.

Inn On Ferry Street doesn't claim to be a modern and stylish hotel, but they could at least make sure everything in the hotel is in good condition. The place is starting to get a tatty appearance and some maintenance would go a long way.
