  • 6.6

    Room was large and clean.

    Breakfast took a long time -- only one server. Not impressed with the food. Did not get much either.

  • 3.2

    Ac notveirking

  • 7.0

    The rooms were very nice and the staff was nice

    The hot tub was dirty

  • 7.4

    access to snowmobile trail and restaurant.

  • 8.8

    The lakeside view is worth the additional expense, especially if you're an early riser. Polite, courteous staff.

    Breakfast at the restaurant was good ( again the view is exceptional) but dinner was marginal. Jimmy johns is just across the street, probably a better bet.

  • 6.6

    Management responded to a peoblem with an acceptable solution.

    Noise from a wedding celebration

  • 5.8

    Staff all very friendly.

    Room was kinda smelly. I read that there are certain floors that have "remodeled" rooms that are nicer. I must have got one of the old ones. Smelled old, and a bit musty. Bed not very comfortable, and bed-spread kinda scared me.

  • 7.0

    Large room. Location is good. Reservation and room rate was handled correctly.

    Breakfast was bad. Service was poor and the food was terrible. Room has a musty odor.

  • 7.8

    Location and price.Clean. We were there for a funeral so didn't stay in the hotel much.

    It was very noisy, people in the wee hours coming in and being loud.

  • 9.6

    Love the fact that we can park the car and walk whereever we want to go. Beds are very comfortable. Free breakfast coupons are great. Have stayed here many times.

    Cannot think of one thing. Price is somewhat high (in my opinion), but still worth it due to the convenience of the location.

  • 9.6

    Pulled in late after a long drive. The young lady at the front desk was very friendly, inquired on our trip and checked us in quickly. Went to the top floor for a drink before turning in. Beautiful view of the water and the surrounding town. The free breakfast in the morning, while limited on choices, was very good and did the trick. My wife said that she definitely would stay again if back in Houghton.

  • 8.2

    View of Portage and convenient location w/store next door...Walking to downtown...

    Little noisy in the halls...

  • 6.6

    We had a room with a view overlooking the river that was nice. The hotel was in walking distance of the downtown area snd college.

    Although the rooms are non- smoking they still had the smell of stale smoke. The noise between the rooms was more than others hotels we have stayed in. The resturant which is not owned by the hotel was under staffed for the amount of people booked within the hotel.

  • 7.4

    The location, walking distance to resturants and shops.

  • 8.8

    The location: you're right downtown, walking distance from good cafes and restaurants, and of course just minutes from Michigan Tech. The view of the waterfront is great. The staff were friendly and helpful, rooms were comfortable and clean. The free breakfast was good, cooked to order and brought to your table, not the all-too-common make-your-own-waffles and steamer trays full of old scrambled eggs.

    We were there on a really busy weekend (Michigan Tech preview day) and parking was a little tight, which might have been a problem as Houghton has overnight restrictions on parking on streets and in lots in the winter. We didn't have to find out what to do in that case, as a spot opened up the second time around. That's the only negative thing I could think of to mention -- it was a great stay.
