Spent a day with work at Michigan Tech and then had some family time. Had a room on the canal side. You feel like your in a cabin with the window open, you can hear the water, hear birds, and smell the clean fresh air. We booked rooms for the same time next year! Hurry and book around the fourth...

We loved the location, the view, and the staff. We also stayed at a Quality Inn towards Mackinac Island and felt that the beds were so much more comfortable there. I would stay at the Super 8 again especially if they got better beds

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.
