... the Detroit Tunnel is the 27th ranked attraction, but it’s all we have to go on. The inn is a national historic site, about 2 miles from heart of downtown – and also in the heart of the academic/cultural district. $135/night - VERY very nice, beautiful, comfortable, huge rooms, meticulously restored, high quality silent AC, peaceful, a free gourmet breakfast, outstandingly friendly staff. IF you ever go to Detroit this is the place to stay. We were lucky to ...
... it might have been quiet because everyone was sleeping off the night before?) Even Dominics was closed for the weekend, and Pizza Bob's at least for the morning. Found my way around (not that much has changed actually!) for a nice walk and picked up Mom in time to listen in on the first hour of my call enroute to Bloomfield Hills. She backseat drove.

Historical Traveler Reviews Milner Hotel Detroit
I did not read any reviews about this hotel. My husband and I booked through Hotels.com, and figured they were a reliable source. This was the worst hotel experience of our lives--we do not wish this experience upon anyone!!! The Webpage for this Hotel is a false advertisement. Do not believe any of their pictures, and/or adverstisement.
Cheap, clean, great location
We are a couple of 60 something guys who came to town for a baseball game and some gambling. Although it is old and lacks some amenities, we found it cheap, clean, and in a great location. We walked to Comerica Park, Greeektown, Casino, RenCen, etc. Hotels a block away were $100 per night more. I'm a suburban Detroit native and I was surprised at the huge amount of weekend night life in the area. Which leads to some advice. Get a room on an upper floor to get away from the street noise. I should note that our wives probably would not have rated it as high as we did.
For someone who travels almost every week, I can't believe that I stayed in this dump. I found out once to Detroit that there was an international convention in town and that is why all of the hotels were either overpriced or sold out.
I have never in my life stayed in such a crap hole. There was not hot water from the tub. The water from the sink was rusty and got hot when I found out the hot was the cold and the cold was the hot.
The place smells, is run down, and has no parking, so you need to be out of bed at 6 AM to feed the meter money or you get towed.
This place is over priced if it was free.
This hotel is the best I could find. The location is great and rooms are nice. The price is unbeatable. If you do not want to spend on unnecessary luxuries this hotel is right for you.
Look, let me make something clear right off the bat. I AM easy to please. I saw the mixed reviews on this site and booked it anyways, thinking that there is always a few that just can not be pleased. From the second you walk in the Milner to the second you leave, its borderline losing your lunch. When you walk through the front doors and into the lobby, the smell of 45 year old rotten eggs is the only thing that you can smell, it overshadows the cigarette hanging from the mouth of the guy at the front desk. True Story. The rooms are no more than 1/3 the size of a real hotel room. I could be using the restroom and holding my girlfriend's hand while she laid in bed at the same time. True story. The tv does not have basic cable, and the channels change by themselves. The only thing making the toilet flush is gravity. you have to hold the handle down for a good minute or two. Now, just a little background info on me. I worked for a rent to own company for about 6 yrs. and delivered to housing projects on the south side of chicago multiple times a day. There is NOT ONE of them that I would not have rather stayed in. This hotel can be rented for 155 dollars per WEEK!!!!! It's advertised in the lobby. More people live here than stay here for a night. Im about 6 feet exactly and my feet hung off the bed. You also have to pay for a parking garage, if there is a game, the garage charges 30 more dollars besides your normal fee. Just spend a few more dollars and go somewhere else. the omni is great as is the hilton in windsor.
After seeing some of the reviews on this site I was a bit hesitant about staying at the Milner, but it turned out to be not that bad. The Milner is an old hotel and like many older big city hotels, the rooms are small and obviously past their prime. If this is a problem for you I would say stay away, but if you are looking for cheap accomodations in a great location The Milner is a fine choice. As mentioned the rooms were small and old, but the furnishings were nice and they were clean. The location if fantastic as you are within walking distance of both Comerica Park (detroit tigers) and Ford Field (detroit lions) as well as The Fox Theater, State Theater and Hockey Town Cafe. The people mover is right there too which gives you access to Greektown, Casinos and Joe Luis Arena. Our room looked right out over the outfield of Comerica Park which was nice. The price can't be beat as we got rooms for under $60. The bottom line is if you don't mind an old hotel that is very average, but with a cheap price and great location The Milner is for you. I would stay there again.
" Dump "
I cannot believe that Hotel.com would list The Milner Hotel in Detroit Michigan to choose from, to stay in Detroit....The WORST Hotel I have ever and probable will ever stay in. Unfortunatly I had to stay 1 night, worst night of my life!
this is not bad and well worth the small fee it was to stay there. i found the staff delightful and courteous. i will definitely be back.
what a gem in the quiet street life in downtown detroit, mi. xo.
The hotel bites big the big one. the room service is terible the food tastes bad. What a waste of MONEY! IT JUST SUCKS!!! Go to the Ritz Carlton BABY O YEAH!!!!!!!!!!1
