“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

This is a clean, tidy, budget motel in a great location, right on the water. It's a good deal for the price. Nothing fancy, but you're only minutes from downtown Houghton, good restaurants, and area parks. Nice, hot jacuzzi spa and sauna near the indoor pool.

Super place to stay for attending Mich. tech. Graduation. View of the ski hill as well as the Portage Canal made Super 8 the perfect choice.

You can't beat the price for the location. Right on the water, and walking distance to both down town and MTU campus. There is probably much nicer places to stay but you need to consider the price. We've stayed here a couple of times, all we're looking for is a bed in a clean room and great location. The only negative, if the hotel is full you can here people in the hall. You get what you pay for.

We've stayed here a few times when visiting MTU. Great value. Good breakfast. Clean rooms. Right on the water and easy walk to down town or MTU campus. The only negative, if the hotel is full you can hear people in the hall and next to you.

We were very happy with our two adjoining rooms facing the water. The breakfast was nice, pretty much all we needed. The rooms were clean and comfortable. While in Houghton, we attended an anniversary dinner in the Best Western up the road close-by and we all commented that we were happier staying in the Super 8 instead. Much nicer grounds and outdoor comfort. We would stay there again with no problems.

This was my second extended stay here in as many weeks. The staff & manager will do just about anything to make being away from home feel like a second home! I will never look further for lodging in this area........Keep up the good work!
