“Clean and pretty but NO amenities!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

My husband and I stayed here in June. When we arrived. we noticed the lovely living room and pleasant surroundings. Our room, however, was on the 2nd floor and there was no elevator. There was also no one to assist with baggage. If my husband had not been with me I would not have been able to manage. The room itself was attractive and clean but nothing special. In this little town there is no place to go for breakfast locally and the inn offers NOTHING. No coffee in the lobby, no juice, no continental breakfast, nothing. For that reason alone, I cannot recommend it. We were passing through Houghton again last week. I made reservations at a hotel an hour away where there would be a clean room, indoor pool, free breakfast, and an elevator for about the same price!

We stayed at the Inn at Houghton Creek during our trip to Letchworth State Park. This a nice clean hotel. There is no complimentary breakfast and the coffee is $1 a cup. This is a bare basic hotel. I feel it is still well worth the cost even though the amenities are lacking. This is a very quiet area located just below Houghton College. Access to the rooms are with keys which have a brass tag. We will stay here again when traveling to this area.

We were here for a wedding nearby and stayed for 2 nights. In fact, on the second nite we got
another room for a relative that came to the same wedding and they were very pleasant even thou we didn't have a reservation for those people. Very nicely decorated and very clean. Although there is no breakfast there and coffee and sodas are high priced it was still a pleasant stay.

Stayed at the Inn at Houghton Creek to visit our son this summer. We were there for five nights. Very friendly staff and clean spacious rooms. Has the feel and warmth of a B&B but the privacy of a hotel. Houghton is a very small community but the scenery of it and the surrounding towns is beautiful. Reasonable rate. Only drawback is that there is no continental breakfast available and the nearest place to eat is about ten minutes away.

What a wonderful little Inn in the town of Houghton. We had a wedding on Rushford Lake this past weekend and had the pleasure of staying the Inn at Houghton Creek on Saturday night - only 8 miles from our wedding. What a treasure. My husband is very afraid to stay in a "bed and breakfast" and wasn't too thrilled about the word "Inn" either. When we got there and checked in, it was a nice homey feel to the Inn. We walked upstairs to our room and found it was to be very hotel looking. My husband was thrilled. The Inn is in a neighborhood and we could open the windows!!! A home feel, but hotel comfort. Highly recommend if you are in the area.

We stayed at the Inn this past weekend for one night after a wedding nearby. It was unexpectedly lovely, terrific price (about $100) as part of the wedding arrangements. The flowers around the Inn were beautiful. The rooms are quite spacious, comfortable beds, nicely decorated. I think the Inn is missing an opportunity though, to add value by providing some type of breakfast for guests. There is absolutely no option for breakfast anywhere (no bakeries or coffee shops for miles.) Coffee in the lobby is $1 and sodas are $1.50 which is a little disconcerting though we did take advantage of the in-room coffee maker. The snack machine was broken during our stay. A topic of our "after wedding get-together" was how beneficial even an Otis Spunkmeyer muffin in a plastic bag would have been but how helpful and practical a continental breakfast would be! (It seems so strange that you have to literally leave town in order to find breakfast.) my other issue was just that although my husband loved the heft and firmness of the pillows, I really missed my soft, squishy pillow and slept less comfortably consequently.

We were visiting Houghton college as this is one of the options our son is considering. Alum friends of ours had suggested options 1 hour away - but since our son was sleeping that night on campus - we wanted to stay as close as possible to avoid driving a bunch. We were gratefully pleased that the rooms were not just ultra convenient - but also very comfortable.

Room Tip: all look good
