i did not buy the groupon deal but went to the ypsi arbor web site and printed the coupon of $5 all you can bowl from 12pm to 10pm mon thru fri. we got there at about 7pm (friday nite) and at 9pm all the ltes went out and it became "cosmic bowl" and in the middle of game 5 our lane shut off! when we ask about it he said it was HIS choice to turn us off after 2 hrs and we could NOT have "all you can bowl". altho the ally was better than most of the reviews. HE does NOT honor the coupon of ALL YOU CAN BOWL as the coupon states!

Ypsi-Arbor has been around for many years. It's not the greatest looking from the outside.My bowling experience with the staff and people that manage this establishment has been great.It seems they are always trying to improve as best as they can. Can't comment on league bowling there since I have no experience there. The man that runs the Pro Shop , Dave, has been the best help and really works with you. I was really impressed with this man's concern and work ethics.

Not Smoke Free!

Wanted a Bowling Birthday party in a Smoke Free Building, for six 5 year old children. The place advertised as smoke free till 7:00 Pm. As you walk in, the place smelled very smokey!! We got shoes and started bowling and someone came out from the Pro shop smoking. We talked to the desk and the pro shop people threw a fit that because they rent part of the building that they have every right to smoke. The desk told us that the could not stop the pro shop employees from smoking, that they are not part of the alley. We then continued with the party, the entire time a couple of people keep coming out of the pro shop smoking and laughing at us. Very disapointed. The bowling alley employees were very nice and did there best to make us happy, dispite the pro shop bad help.....

WE went there directly after work one day...around 4:45 pm....we just wanted to have a few beers and bowl a few games....we were told the bar opened at 5:00...so we bowled a game and waited...the bartender showed up at 4:50 and then proceeded to stand around and talk to the other employees for like 45 minutes...we asked her twice when she would open the bar and she kept saying "any minute now" and then she kept gabbing....so stopped in the middle of our game...took off our shoes and walked out...just so we could go someplace where we could get a beer and appreciated for the paying customers we were!!

The staff was very friendly and helpful. I took my 12 year old nephew and we had a blast.I did not know how to enter the names in the automatic scorekeeper and the clerk came down, to the lanes, and helped me out.The place was lively on a Saturday night with good music. It was definitely worth it.

This place needs remodelling. Also needs airing out. Smells like smoke. Carpet doesn't even look like carpet. So dirty that the floor looks like cement. Go about 5 miles West to Ann Arbor or 10 miles East to Canton. If you are gonna pay these prices you might as go to a decent bowling alley.

The Ypsi Arbor lanes is a pretty good bowling alley. Their bowling prices are pretty reasonable and so are their billard prices. It's a little smokey, but other than that, it's a good alley.

Fairly standard bowling alley. Prices are reasonable. When crowded, sometimes hard to find desired ball... Kind of run down area of town as well. Close to Ann Arbor, hence the name.

PROS: Reasonably priced. Good lanes. Convenient to Ann Arbor as well as Ypsi.
CONS: Run down area

This is a bowling that is a little run down on the outside. There is plenty of parking and its easy to find. They have rock and bowl on the weekends. You may want to call before you drop in to bowl, they have leagues in the evenings as well. Place could use a face lift, but overall not that bad.

Ypsi-Arbor Lanes borderlines between 3-Satisfactory and 2-Wouldn't Recommend. It's your standard bowling alley, but it isn't in the nicest part of town. While at the lanes, you sort of get the feeling that you're in this part of town.

Don't get me wrong, there aren't terrible parts of town in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. I still am plenty happy to go to Ypsi-Arbor, I just prefer to try Bel Mark Lanes and Colonial Lanes first.
