I called the Super 8 in Houghton to inquire about rates for a weekend that I was going to be staying there. I spoke to Sandy the hotel manager and booked a reservation with the rate she quoted me because it was a few dollars cheaper than online. When I got to the hotel to check in I was very...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed January 12, 2017 via mobile

During the years my son has gone to Michigan Tech we've stayed at the Super 8 each time we visited, based on a recommendation from a MTU graduate. It has great views of the lake/river (ask specifically for a room with a lake view) and clean and comfortable rooms. It is within walking distance of both MTU and the downtown...

Nice location and the views of the water are worth the premium. There were maintenance problems when we were there with the electronic locks. Breakfast left a lot to be desired, but I guess that is Super8 standard.

Hotel is right on the water - very close to MTU campus and downtown Houghton. We walked along the waterfront to downtown restaurants (few blocks away). Rooms are updated and clean. Very large indoor pool area with jacuzzi and sauna. Basic breakfast in spacious dining area. Plenty of common space to hang-out... comfy lobby, tables in pool area, seating areas...

The hotel is clean, the front desk and other staff are very friendly. Breakfast is adequate but could use a little more protein. The place is a great value, close to MTU, and easy to get to. We're going back.

I requested a waterview and when I checked in, of COURSE, no rooms were available. When you make your reservations, read your receipt to make sure it states what you requested. Breakfast tasty, location great! Would stay again

It was a place to stay for the night close to campus. The heater was annoyingly loud, but otherwise the room was quiet. The view was great, and kudos for the staff for not removing the beer that the previous occupants left in the fridge.
