I really love the hospitality of the staff at the inn. The room was very clean but too small. Other than that a great place to stay short term.👍💯

I loved the uniqueness of the historical inn! Very clean and peaceful here. Fantastic breakfast. By far, the nicest staff who truly care about making your stay enjoyable. The shuttle service was such a blessing having had to go back and forth from the hospital for my husband’s surgery and stay for 3 days plus taking me to area restaurants for meals. I never had to move my vehicle out of the parking space!! Would highly recommend The Inn on Ferry Street. Should we need an overnight stay in Detroit again, this is the place I will choose. ❤️
