This hotel has a lot of good and bad things. Lots of parking spaces and restaurants around. Good size rooms friendly staff some of them are really cute. Pool and hottub are relaxing. I am not sure if their is a lot of shopping places around. Although a liquor store area. Their is a few gas stations.

The American Inn & Suites in Houghton Lake, MI was very disappointing. Great locations, but the place smelled musty and it just did not look clean. Our first night the Air conditioner in the room did not work, refridgerator (small!) barely worked, the table in the room had a broken leg and the security lock on the door was missing!... More

At the end of a long day travelling it was nice to walk into a clean hotel with very friendly front desk staff. The room is good size, furnished well and very clean. Though only here for one night this will be a hotel that we will remember should we be this way again!

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!
