Comfortable room in North Corktown

House - Private room · Cochrane St, Detroit, MI 48216, United States

The Space

I have a comfortable modern room available in the Corktown neighborhood. Its a private room with a queen size bed and a shared bathroom.

This neighborhood was originally settled by Irish immigrants and is just west of downtown (center of downtown is about a mile from my place). Its a working class neighborhood that has some interesting urban charm.

I love this city and its my goal to have visitors experience and enjoy as many of its assets as possible. I'm always happy to tell you some of the interesting things going on in town. I'm close to every freeway so you can easily get around the region. I'm about a 25 minute drive from the airport. Sadly, we don't have a real good public transportation system, so be prepared for that. If possible, I would recommend bringing a bike because in many ways Detroit is an ideal biking city.

You are welcome to use the kitchen (I also have a gas grill that you could use) and wifi is available for your (website hidden) as well. I guess I should also mention that I don't smoke and I don't allow smoking in the house.

  • Todd's home is spacious and spotless. The bedroom, bathroom and kitchen area are very clean. The house and the neighborhood may be historic, but everything has been recently remodeled. It was easy to get to my Midtown and Downtown destinations from Todd's North Corktown neighborhood.

    Todd is very courteous and accommodating. He accepted my reservation at the last minute and was able move my check in forward when my travel plans changed. He is very communicative. Check in and check out were a breeze.

    Great place if you have business in the Downtown, New Center or Wayne State. Very quiet. Bed is comfortable. Shower is hot. Internet is strong. Good base from which to explore the D.

  • Todd lives in a great location. It is very close to Midtown and Downtown. His neighborhood has a lot of charm and it's within walking distance of Michigan Ave which is a hip street with great new restaurants. Todd is extremely knowledgeable about Detroit and shared a lot of his wisdom with us. He provides maps of Detroit, easy access to his place, a towel and a very comfortable room to stay in.

  • I stayed 4 nights in this place. That was very clean, the bed is so comfortable and Todd is a very pleasant person. He showed me some curiosities in Detroit and some restaurants and bars. We also had very interesting discussions. I highly recommend this place !

    November 2013
  • I had an excellent stay and the place was exactly as advertised -- extremely clean and centrally located. Todd was a great host, and though I was too busy running around to really get a chance to speak with him in detail and take advantage of his knowledge of the area, my interactions with him were always very pleasant. If I find myself back in Detroit, I would definitely stay there again!
