Our son, a third year student at Michigan Tech, makes us a frequent visitor to the Houghton area. The Country Inn & Suites is always our number one choice when planning our trips there. We've stayed at this CI & S in all seasons, at busy times, at quiet times – and our experiences, for the most part, have always been positive ones. Front desk staff is always friendly and helpful. The rooms are always clean and have had some updates (flat screen TVs, fresh comforters). Parking is easy. The breakfast area is nice and large – compared to other CI & S. Plenty of tables and an overflow room. Breakfast selections are good, although I'm an oatmeal fan – so I'm always happy to see that they offer hot oatmeal and not really looking over the other options – however, they are plentiful. On the negative side - one thing I always notice when I stay here is that the water pressure at the sink isn't so great. The shower is fine, but in all the rooms I've stayed in, there's low water pressure at the sink. The only other problem we've had here was once this summer… we had hoped to check in before dinner to freshen up (about 5 pm – check in is at 3 pm) and was told our room wasn't ready. And in fact, there wasn't one room ready that we could have (if we were to switch room types). We had the option of dropping our bags off in our dirty room that was currently being cleaned – or putting our luggage back in the car. We ended up just putting it in the room and ran into the maintenance man changing the beds. Obviously, they were short on help that day. They did adjust our bill a bit. The other time we were disappointed was more recently. We had been offered an "anniversary special" from CI & S Houghton (by e-mail) – 20% off the room rate and a complimentary bottle of champagne and chocolates. We took advantage of this special being in Houghton for Michigan Tech's parents weekend in mid-October. (we only stayed Sunday night, as it was booked solid over the weekend) We did receive the 20% off that night, but the champagne and chocolates never showed up. Disappointing (it was our 25th anniversary!)…and felt a little ignored that weekend (especially being a frequent guest) as the front desk never asked us how we liked our room as we checked out. No use bringing the forgotten anniversary special up then – too late. Regardless, the Country Inn and Suites is a super nice place to stay while in Houghton. We also like it's location right next door to the Mine Shaft restaurant and bowling alley. It's a great place to get a quick bite, or watch sports on their huge TVs. Nice we can walk there from our hotel. Although we've had just a few disappointments, the Country Inn and Suites will always be our first choice when staying in Houghton.
