We stayed for 2 nights in June when we went to pick up my daughter at Tech. Room was clean, the staff was very friendly. We forgot something in the room, and they are mailing it to us. The free breakfast was very tasty. Plan to use the Super 8 the next time we're in Houghton.

Decent place, really nice view of the Portage, large rooms, front desk is just ok, pool is marginal. Have to check out pool towels at the front desk, but they don't tell you that until you are searching for them at the pool!

The hallway desperately needed to be vacuumed. Our room was clean and spacious, but the bathroom was so small, the door almost touched the toilet when you opened it. And the sink is outside the bathroom by the door when you immediately walk in. It was just an odd layout. What did it for me was the mattress. The absolute... More

Needed a good nights sleep after a long drive, desk was friendly, beds were small for doubles, room was kind of tight, not much counter in the bathroom. Minor stuff compared to the noise from the other guest in the parking lot, loud talking, shouting, laughing. Called the desk, no help, it kept on. I won't stay here again if... More

I love this hotel! We travel to Houghton at least once a year and we always stay here, and will continue to stay here. The room (two queen beds) was very spacious and made us very comfortable. The canal view was beautiful; worth the few extra bucks to stay on the canal side.

This motel is way better than I could have expected especially for a super 8. I never stay at Super 8's but I will always stay here when I'm in town for work.

Reserved room by internet for Monday and Tuesday last week but failed to check if the pool area was open. When arriving, a note at the front desk stated that the pool/hot tub and sauna were closed for maintenance. To avoid disappointment, check with motel before booking. We were upgraded to a canal (lakeside) room and was able to use... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of the Super 8. I am sorry that the pool was closed during your stay but necessary maintenance work needed to be done and I guess there is never a really good time to close it, but it was down for one day only. I hope the rest of your... More

Quiet and clean, and a nice view of the Portage River at breakfast. Helpful staff and a plentiful complementary breakfast. My room was on the south side, so no view there, but several of the public spaces have a great view.

Not a Child Friendly Experience! We were staying here for only 1 night as we were only in town for a wedding. The room itself was decent, your average every day room, we did have a gorgeous view of the water from our window. However, walking to the room was an adventure of walking through multiple clouds of marijuana stench!... More
