4/10 Fair

The door lock didn't work on two rooms. My shower drain was blocked so I couldn't shower. The walls were so thin I heard people outside shouting and the girl next door moaning.

8/10 Very good

OKAY for short visit within a tight budget
The location is excellent. It is within walking distance to the Renaissance Center and the Greek town. The room is not very clean, so lodgers better bring their pillow case and blanket. They have free parking, so it is good.

Don’t do it.
This place was awful. After seeing the outside and lobby we were sure to check our room out extra good. Low and behold there was a belly ring under our sheets. Hair in the bed. Pieces of paper or something on the floor. The floor was dirty. The rooms smell awful. Parking lot is terrible. Just an overall bad experience for us. Never again.

6/10 Good

Check in was surpose to be 2pm, room was not ready until 2:40pm made me late for an event. Was only 1 set of towels in the room, we had to share that between the 2 of us because we were running late, was told we couldn't get another set until we bring the first set down to the office, I will not be going back to that place.

I won't stay here again.
After the first night, Rivertown wasn't able to honor my reservation.

Quick trip
Will definitely stay here again. Little outdated, but worth it for a one night stay in downtown Detroit. LOVED the free shuttle, this was awesome to get us to Ford Field for our concert.
