AA B&B is easy to find, and although on a busy street, has dedicated parking for its guests on the property. It's nicely situated between the U of M campus and the downtown business area, making it an easy walk to either. The rooms each have their own style and personality which makes this place unique!

I've never written a negative review before, but after how disrespectful the man/owner of AA B&B was, I wanted to share my warning and disappointment with other perspective clients as well as the owners. I'm a Wolverine alumna who has stayed at AA B&B before and had a pleasant experience--although I didn't have the opportunity to meet the innkeepers, as they were out of town, but the young woman who was their substitute innkeeper for the week was extremely kind and professional. Last year (late 2012) I called AA B&B to book multiple rooms for my family for my brother's UM graduation 2015. The man told me that reservations could not be booked for graduation 2015 until Jan. 1, 2014. I promptly called back on Dec. 31, 2013 and he told me they were already full for graduation 2015. When I tried to explain that I had called a year ago and he had asked me specifically to call back 1/1/14, and I was a loyal former customer (who really just wanted an apology), he wouldn't let me finish my sentences and kept rudely interrupting me to loudly say "I said we're full for 2015! You can call Campus Inn instead! I repeat , we're full for 2015!" and eventually hung up on me. It was one of the most rude and unprofessional interactions I've had with anyone in the service industry. All I wanted was a simple, "I'm very sorry for the mix up. This was my bad. We value your business, and I'll make sure to call you myself next time to confirm your next reservation with us." I wasn't expecting any unrealistic action to be taken (i.e., kicking others out to magically get rooms for me)--merely a professional, authentic apology. I'm someone who always prefers to support small, local, family-owned businesses, but I won't stay at AA B&B again. Being a family owned business doesn't excuse a business owner from treating customers with kindness and respect.

We have stayed in the Farmhouse for the past three years and it is a special experience for our family. The Inn Keepers are wonderful people and so accommodating!! The house is well equipped for just about any need. We have cooked big Thanksgiving dinners and everything necessary was available from pie tin to potato masher!!! The five bedrooms are comfortable and each has it's own bath...with three girls that is a blessing in our family!!! We look forward to staying there again in the near future!!!

We enjoyed another stay at Ann Arbor Bed and Breakfast recently. It is so comfortable and Pat went the extra mile to make our stay pleasent. Any time we go to Ann Arbor we stay here!!

W recently traveled from NC to Ann Arbor for the MI football game as a surprise vacation for my husband. We stayed in the upper room with the kitchen, sky light windows and balcony. It was above and beyond what we were expecting. My husband was very surprised. The B&B is within walking distance of campus and some great restaurants. The B&B owners were wonderful and recommended some great places to try - which we did and were very pleased! Great weekday stay. We will be returning there if we visit Ann Arbor again!! Breakfast was delicious as well! :)

We only spent one night at AA B&B, but it was a good one. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom had adequate counter space (always a plus for us). Although the proprietors were out of town, the "substitute" hostess was very personable and a fine cook. The location was perfect for us -- we could walk to the two restaurants we ate at on Main Street and to the two theaters where were attended performances. This is especially advantageous because of Ann Arbor's always car-filled streets.

My husband and I stayed in the Jamboree Room to celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary and we had a wonderful time! The room was lively and beautiful with the warm, bright colors and the sun pouring in through the sliding glass doors. The common space is whimsically and eclectically decorated; I could have spent hours looking through the antique toys and local art displayed. We were invited for wine and cheese in the evening and breakfast in the morning was delicious and healthy! We we warmly welcomed by staff and felt very at home. The location is prime for walking to downtown and we even enjoyed the close location to the stadium and the walk through campus to get there. I highly recommend staying at the Ann Arbor Bed and Breakfast!

The AABB is the perfect combination of energy and sophistication. The design is both "kitchy" and elegant, the beds are very comfy, breakfasts great and the owners/innkeepers knowledgeable and respectful. Great location and even covered parking. The ideal place to stay in Ann Arbor.

Central to the University of Michigan campus, the Ann Arbor B&B is right in the heart of the action. Around every corner in the beautifully decorated space you will find well-thought-out details that offer all the comforts of home combined with the luxuries of a relaxing getaway. Snacks, drinks, and treats abound around the clock, and innkeepers Pat and Bob will go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. My only regret was that we couldn't stay longer! But no worries, we will be back, again and again!

This B&B has it all- UNIQUE, large rooms, clean, great bed, great food, safe, parking, great service, and LOCATION! Just go there. We stayed in the "Maine Woods" room-it was awesome-a mini apartment/tree house/cabin in a mid century building/house! Next time we are staying longer.

We were looking for a place to stay when our daughter was deciding about UM.Our experience at the Ann Arbor Bed and Breakfast was so wonderful we have stayed with Pat and Bob everytime we visit Ann Arbor and our daughter. It has the feel of home with a little whimsy added. We love the theme rooms at the campus site as well as the farm house! Breakfast is always delicious and relaxed. A living room setting offers free wifi, flat screen TV, and comfy couches for relaxing. We can't say enough about the Ann Arbor Bed and Breakfast...truly a gem of a place! Ellen and Brad New York

perfectly satisfactory B&B experience. One touch I especially liked were the little snacks, chocolates, and drinks that were available for the guests. Also the coffee tea and hot chocolate always out. Everything was pleasant, clean, and very nice.

You couldn't ask for a better place to stay while visiting the University of Michigan and Ann Arbor...it makes the whole experience the absolute best. From the hospitality to the lovely breakfasts and spacious rooms to the complete convenience/location.

When visiting Ann Arbor and UMich, I know where I will stay next time again. On my first visit this summer I had the room on top floor, but calling this a "room" does not come close to what it is. It was the whole large attic floor decorated in the most homey and thoughtful manner. The innkeepers are wonderful people and they make it natural to share breakfast with strangers in a home-like setting. I would have loved to stay much longer.

Moved away from the area in 2006 after having raised my family in a nearby small town. Never knew this gem was in Ann Arbor. Now I wouldn't stay anywhere else when returning to visit the kids and Ann Arbor. We stay at a lot of wonderful bed and breakfasts. This one was the first one where I felt I wasn't a guest, I was home. Good for the soul.
