As soon as we entered the room we were hit with a nasty, musty smell...like cat urine. The room was dark and out of date, not very clean looking or smelling. We immediately checked back out. The desk clerk however was very accommodating with canceling our reservation, giving us a full refund, which he did not have to do.

Family of 4 stayed here for around $60 a night. It's not a palace by any means, but it was clean and comfortable with an attentive staff. Quite a few local restaurants you can easily walk to. Free breakfast was adequate.

I have stayed at a lot of motels. This is the worst one ever! To start things out, I walked in the room to find a dehumidifier going...not a good sign. The room smelled of strong bleach. The bathroom floor had hairs on it. The room and the motel itself are in very poor repair. On 3 different occasions, my... More

We were road weary motorcyclists. The desk clerk was friendly, helpful and gave us clear options of what rooms were available. We selected the Executive Suite on the top floor. WOW! We had a beautiful view of the river and the city. The room was spacious, clean and had the most comfortable bed EVER. We ate at the restaurant suggested... More

Although the location is good....right in downtown Houghton and close to restaurants and stores, the hotel itself is rather odd. We were given a room on the first floor. It appeared that the rooms once opened onto the street, and then later a hallway was built to enclose them. We had a non-smoking room, but down the hallway there was... More

A decent quality small hotel in downtown Houghton with warm rooms, pool with hot tub, and continental breakfast...will stay again there in the future.

We received an amazing discount through my boyfriend’s work. We stayed on a Tuesday and Wednesday night. We only paid $39.00 per night! We arrived at the hotel around 2:00 PM (almost 2 hours before check in), the kind woman at the front desk allowed us to check in early without any hassle. She explained where everything was, and gave... More

This hotel is a OK place to stay. There is a fine pool area. The rooms are nice , but have a small bathroom. The beds are great ,but nice to bad pillows. The theme of the place is a ski resort but without the hill. There are many winter activities near by. This a nice travel place to stay... More

This seems to be the best value in town. However the room was in the upper 40's (deg F) when we checked in at 11 PM. It took 3 hours for the room to warm up. I would suggest you have them turn on your heat at least a couple of hours before you arrive. We spoke to the front... More
