    Room was large and clean.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Good

    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.

    Fabulous

    Very close to Michigan tech campus as well as the downtown area

    Everyday i had to go down to the front desk to get my breakfast pass for the next day, not sure why they couldn't just give me all 3 at once. Also they don't just plow the snow up there they truck it out of the city, since the hotel is right downtown i had to listen to the large trucks for 2 hours in the middle if the night
