This hotel is worth it only if you have the lakeside rooms. The views are pretty awesome. The staff were wonderful. Not only were they helpful but also they are so courteous. Overall i would say great stay for 2 days with my family.

Great views from the beachfront rooms. Comfortable. A little dated and worn. Simple, continental breakfast (no eggs, bacon, etc.). Very friendly Staff; Melissa is a gem. Easy parking and short walk to elevator. Worth the $89 + tax when we visited. Would stay again if in Houghton Lake.

The hotel is clean and the staff is very nice. We stayed there three nights while visiting family in June.

The hotel is situated on the Western shore of Houghton Lake. All of the rooms on the lake side have wonderful views of the lake. Ours had a balcony and would be very comfortable during the summer. We were there in mid May and the weather was still changeable so sitting on the balcony did not appeal for us during... More

This was my first visit to the area since I was a child. I was up here to speak at a paranormal conference and this room was reserved for us by the host. We arrived before the scheduled check-in time but were given a room with no hassle. The room was nearly perfect. It was very clean, well stocked, and... More

First off, Let me start off with a huge WOW! I have been coming to this hotel since it opened 5 years ago and have always had a great time. But this last time was just simply AMAZING! As soon I walked I instantly noticed the pool room was painted bright blues and a vibrant green color. The pool was... More

Nice big rooms with Great Lake view and all rooms have a fridge so you can bring drinks and snacks. Nice heated pool and hot tub. Good location on the south shore close to shopping, and the beautiful Pine Theatre.
