My husband and I stayed at the Houghton Holiday Inn Express in July 2011. We originally planned on a one-night stay. However, the staff (Kim and Carla) thoughtfully pointed out the morning that we were supposed to leave (by plane) that the inbound flight the night before had not arrived (Houghton has a small airport and there is only one evening flight). This meant that we might not get out, because that aircraft was supposed to be used for our flight. It turned out that they were right! Our flight was oversold because of the cancelled flight and we got bumped, but thanks to Kim and Carla we were prepared -- the value of local knowledge and thoughtful customer service! So, we stayed a second night, which was actually fine because the weather was great and we didn't mind another day on the beautiful Keweenaw peninsula. The room had fairly standard decor but was very clean and comfortable. We especially liked the new, upgraded bedding and pillows on our king bed. And, the in-room jacuzzi was very nice. The only thing that we didn't like was not the hotel's fault; the hotel is near a huge and ugly parking lot on one side. But, our windows faced the back, toward a rocky hill, and so we had total privacy and quiet. And even above and beyond the help with our flight, the staff -- espcially Kim, Carla and Kyle -- were super-friendly and helpful. So, we can definitely recommend Holiday Inn Express Houghton!
