Comfortable and cozy stay
Great stay. Wonderful and cozy room with very comfortable bedding. Loved the breakfast served. The architecture was well preserved. Extra bonus was the hotel shuttle to nearby reataurants for both dropoff and pick up. I would rate this place at 5 stars!!

Beautiful Bed and Breakfast
The Inn on Ferry Street is in a wonderful area near Wayne University. There are great restaurants close, and the area is clean and safe. The Inn itself is terrific - it is a series of several historic house that have been rehabilitated - they are beautiful, and comfortable. The staff is great, they provide a 24/7 free shuttle, they have a 24 hour front desk and the breakfast is excellent. We will be returning whenever we get a chance!
