Desk staff need some serious training in customer relations. #1 welcome guests. #2 Tell guests about breakfast hours, pool services etc. #3 Acknowledge platinum choice privileges members. Guest rooms are very basic and need a lot of upgrades. Sink and tub faucets are disgusting-old, falling apart. Bathroom mirrors need replacing. Bathroom vanities are falling apart and just nailed together rather... More

Check in process was pleasant. The rest is down hill from here. Be advised that the staff doesn't enforce children be supervised in the pool or anywhere else in the hotel for that matter. While trying to relax in the hot tub, we were repeatedly splashed by the obnoxious children in the pool. They were screaming, pushing, throwing, just being... More

Was driving the semi this week, going through Houghton Lake and needed a place to stop. I look for a hotel with a pool and hot tub to help me enjoy some part of working out of town. I was quite happy with the facilities and staff here. Even though the pool still had a Holiday Inn Express emblem on... More

There are two Comfort Inns in Houghton Lake, one Lakeside which is more of a resort with a large restaurant and the one where we stayed which is right at a junction of two highways so very convenient to our driving holiday. We were there twice in a week. There was a renovation on the front entrance the first stay... More

My wife and two youngest boys stayed here for one night on our way to Mackinac. Comfortable beds, very hot water, clean room, nice pool area, and free breakfast. Combine that with a great internet price, and it was a very satisfactory experience!

Hotel is clean and nice. Only complaint would be the table in the room was so wobbly that it needed to be thrown out. Hotel sits right next to a gas station and KFC and McDonalds. Great if you need a late night snack. Breakfast was the same both days so I am not sure what was up with that.... More

Decent and clean room for a good price. The carpet seemed new. Some of the wallpaper was peeling, but that is pretty minor. The pool is clean and has a nice atmosphere. The breakfast was very good, with a lot of choices.

First of all, I work at another Comfort Inn, so there were issues I was much more understanding on and other situations that I would recommend that the hotel changes right away. The front desk girl worked during our entire stay, I don't believe she went home at all to sleep. The only help she seemed to have was a... More
