We stayed 2 nights with 3 other couples. Rooms below us had professional DJ equipment playing into the morning hours. The next day they were doing fireworks. Several people complained yet mgmt allowed this to continue!! The management's lack of action and lacklustre attitude ruined the weekend for everyone in that hotel except one group! It's too bad because the...

Beachfront Hotel was a wonderful weekend getaway! It was a great location in Houghton Lake near the local restaurants- Limberlost, Buccilli's, Kilkare and within a short driving distance to trails and skiing. The rooms were very cozy, beds are super comfortable, and the staff was friendly. It was very neat watching the snowmobiles go from the parking lot right down...

We've visited scenic Houghton Lake for New Year's Eve - Beachfront Hotel offered a deal on Groupon and sure enough - deal it was. Hotel was nice, window view of frozen Lake spectacular and cleaning/amenities were plentiful. While in Houghton Lake in Winter don't forget to visit Cross County Ski HQ in Roscommon, MI, take a snowmobile ride on a...

Purchased two nights through Groupon for $109. Great price for horrible service. When asked what some of the fun things we could do as a family within a 2 hr radius they said nothing just Walmart. When prompted about renting snowmobiles or other snow related activities they said there was nothing. Feeling annoyed, I looked up activities and found a...

We were in Houghton Lake for my Uncle's funeral. We stayed at the Beachfront Hotel for 1 week. It was a wonderful place to stay. Our room was really nice. Our beds (2 queens) were comfortable. The front desk people, housekeeping, everyone was very friendly and helpful. We had our toilet stop up and they were right there to fix...

Very clean. Decent breakfast with Boiled eggs, waffles, packaged oatmeal, cereal, baked goods, milk, juice and coffee. Nice view of Houghton Lake. Pool area was clean and kept up well, but the chlorine in the hot tub was pretty extreme. Small fitness center with treadmill, elliptical, cable machine and weight balls. Friendly and helpful staff, although when we requested a...

I ended up getting a good deal on a jacuzzi room. The room itself was roomy, had a large refrigerator and a big TV. A few downfalls were the slider handle was barley hanging on by a thread, I didn't use it because I was afraid I'd rip it off. Second the divider between the bed and the toilet was...

I was with an art group spending the day at Arnie's who negotiates for discount rooms eat the Beachfront. The rooms are clan, cozy and in a good location on the lake. It was not swimming weather while we were there, but there was a bon fire in the evening on the beach. Breakfast is served in the mornings.
