What a delight! From the location to the staff, this place is wonderful! We had a room with full lake view and it was breathtaking! So glad we decided to stop here on our way to the UP. The room was clean and large. Our room had refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. TV was adequate sized. It was nice to have the sink outside the bathroom so we can both get ready at the same time. The hair dryer was good!
My spouse and I decided to go on a weekend getaway to Houghton Lake over a weekend in March 2022. We decided to stay at the Beachfront Hotel which was an excellent choice for us! We arrived on a Friday evening and checked out Sunday morning. Overall, this is a nice hotel. It's a bit of an older property, but it's kept up fairly well for the most part. Our room (#416) was clean, comfortable, had a balcony, and overlooked Houghton Lake. We slept very well. Something we noticed, though, was that the towel rack next to the sink in our room kept coming loose. There were a couple of times when I had to secure the fixture back into place. One nice thing about this hotel is that it has a hot tub in its indoor pool area. We used the hot tub which felt great. The downsides, though, to the hot tub, were that it was on the older side (not the most visually appealing) and had too much foam in it. There's a business center computer on the 4th floor, but when I tried to use it, it wasn't working properly... perhaps it just needed a re-boot or something. I can't speak to the breakfast because we ended up going out for breakfast at local restaurants on the two mornings that we stayed here. Altogether, we enjoyed our stay and would gladly stay here again the next time we visit this area. It was very wintry and blustery during our stay, so we couldn't spend much time outside. Maybe in the future we can come back in the summer and enjoy the beach. :)…
The hotel was very clean, staff were great and the room was very nice! We would definitely stay at this same place again. This was a last minute getaway and being unsure of the area, we thought we would give it a try. So happy we did!
Stayed here for a quick getaway on our way to another location. This place is amazing. From the ladies at the front desk to other staff, so polite, professional. We had lakefront room and it was beautiful. The bed was so comfortable. Enjoyed drinks and morning coffee on our private balcony. (Lakefront rooms have their own balconies). The free continental breakfast was a plus to this hotel as well as location to restaurants, bars and the Lake. Definitely staying here again. They have couple of fire pits and grills and several picnic tables near the beach for summer time use and fall but we didn't use any of them but nice that they are available. The Lake was like a sheet of glass, so calm, serene in the fall time.
Stayed beach front, nice view, 2 fire pits on beach, bring your own wood, pretty nice continental breakfast, room has a fridge and microwave in it. Staff is friendly, Beds and pillows are pretty comfy.
We throughly enjoyed our stay and felt safe about their COVID-19 precautions. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room with balcony was clean and comfortable. Karla is the best front desk resource for local attractions and dining choices.
This hotel is in a great location, although it was a winter stay it appeared to be that the beach/lake frontage would be great in the summer also. Easy on/easy off for those that had snowmobiles & ATVs. Our room was spotless with a great view, very clean hotel. We did not use the pool area but it did look warm and inviting. Bagged breakfast consisted of a muffin and nutri-grain bar, would have like an apple or some type of fruit.Coffee is always available in the lobby area. It appears that the staff was following all CDC Covid guidelines. We would definitely stay again if in the area.
The hotel room was spacious and super clean with a beautiful view of the frozen lake with ice fisherman. The front desk ladies (Renee and Susie) went above and beyond to make my friend and I feel welcome! These ladies made our stay most enjoyable. Thank you!
Clean hotel, comfy bed. We had a room with a jacuzzi tub that was wonderful. Because of this, the shower stall is very small. That wasn’t a problem for us, but if anyone likes a spacious and luxurious shower, that won’t be the case in a jacuzzi room. Overall, very nice!
This hotel has the makings of a nice place to stay for family or couples, but don’t book last weekend of June as we were told by the desk during check out. When we were asked how our stay was at check out, we explained we were very happy with our room, but we’re kept up both nights by a group of bikers partying. Instead of offering even a sorry we were told well don’t come back this week in June cuz they book every year. Don’t worry because I will never book here again.
