3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

A standard Super 8 with standard rooms. The place was clean enough and very handy for the road we'd be travelling on the next day. Plenty of parking available, and enough space in the room for us to put a travel cot between the two beds. It had a pool but it was unheated so felt very cold, I wouldn't put my 8 month old in it though my husband did give it a go - for about a minute! There was also a hot tub and sauna which my husband tried, but can't comment on how good they were as whilst he was in the sauna, a couple of female guests came in and held the door open as they thought it was 'too hot'! The breakfast was typical Super 8 fare in a room with 3 or 4 tables to sit at. They also had a highchair which was very useful for us. The staff were friendly and helpful. All in all, a standard Super 8, not under or above average.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

We needed a hotel that would accomodate a handicapped person in our family who uses a wheelchair. They had such. What was very disappointing was that in spite of having (2) such rooms, they only had (1) bath chair. Later we found out that it was in the other occupied room. This was a HUGE X for us. Ended up having to use a plastic chair from the pool area. When I made several unsuccessful attempts at making a local telephone call and reported this to the Front Desk, I was advised that they needed to first turn on the phone in our room. Very strange. The free breakfast is nothing special but the location is just off the interstate. Overall, the room was ok relative to what you might expect from a Super 8.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

I was traveling with my 2 daughters on the way up north. We had stayed at other places in Houghton Lake. From now on I think this will be the place to stay.

There isn't anything special about the Super 8. Rooms were clean and comfortable. We didn't stay for breakfast as there wasn't any room to sit.

The people were friendly.
