Perfectly Situated

At the intersection of  Stadium & Washtenaw. We are about 1.8 miles to South Campus, Sorority Row, and under 2 miles to The Big House and Crisler Center. There is a bus stop out front for the pedestrian minded, and the best retail centers less than a half mile down the road.

The Best Amenities

On-site & adjacent amenities include: Trader Joe’s grocery, Bear Claw Coffee, dry cleaners, postal services, nail salon, with a short walk to  community fitness facilities, Arbor Hills Luxury Shops (Lulu Lemon, Madewell, Anthropology), Whole Foods, BBB, and many great restaurants.

It’s Inn Our Nature

Enjoy our beautiful next door hiking trails, or a paddle or kayak down the Huron at Gallup Park about 3 miles away, or just toast marshmallows on our back lawn fire pit and bocce area. Ann Arbor has so much to offer, so stay here but get out there!

About Us

Having enjoyed a longstanding tradition of serving Ann Arbor’s locals, students, alumnae and faculty, this mid-century motor lodge takes on a new definition of modern with newly renovated decor in our suites, while preserving and incorporating vintage effects and tile work.

Although recently purchased and improved by Wolverine Hospitality Partners, we pride ourselves on having delivered locally owned, friendly services for more than fifty years. At our hotel, we promise a clean, comfortable room and personable staff every time at a rate that won’t hurt your wallet. We are about Going Green, Sustainability, and Local support.

Our friendly staff is eager to help, earning high praise from our guests. We appreciate our numerous repeat guests (patrons, alumnae, international) and look forward to getting to know our new ones.

Guest Reviews

This is one of the best motel experiences I've had. Room was clean, employees were friendly, and it even came with a light breakfast (bagels, cereal, oatmeal). And just $6 Uber to downtown.
