We stayed at the Super 8 during a series of hockey games in Houghton. All in all, we were quite pleased, especially given the very inexpensive cost. The rooms were large and comfortable. We opted for a view of the canal, which was nice (considering it was January). The hotel is close enough that, even in winter, you can walk... More

It's okay- not the Ritz Carlton, but for $70 a night we don't expect much. It's too bad their continental breakfast wasn't better- probably the weakest spread you will see in current breakfast offerings. Rooms are dated and beat, but it's clean and not grimy. Staff are rather Zombie like, but again, this isn't a hotel you are staying at... More

Rooms were big and clean, beds getting old, mattresses were too soft, all 4 of us woke up every morning with soar backs, time to replace mattresses. Also pillows are too small, about 1/3 size of normal pillow and only 2 per bed. Other than that, decent hotel

Thank you for staying with us and posting a review. Sorry to hear that you were unhappy with the mattresses in the room you stayed in. In checking my records those mattresses were purchased in Sept of 2014, however I will inspect them for QA reasons and replace if needed. We will consider putting bigger pillows in the room per...

Good central location to base yourself for snowmobiling. Nicely kept rooms, friendly staff, lots of parking for trailers plus a decent breakfast and hot tub and pool to ease the aching bones. 100 miles round trip by sled to Copper Harbor and 100 miles round trip to Mass. Walk downtown to the Ambassador for an outstanding sub sandwich. Neat surplus... More

Thank you for posting a review about your recent stay at our hotel. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and had time to relax in our whirlpool. Yes, the Super 8 of Houghton does have a large parking lot to accommodate the bigger snowmobile trailers. Hope to be of service to you again. More
