“Good location”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

The Country Inn is a fairly new motel near Route 26. It is at the back side of a new commercial area, set far back from the road, with nothing behind it, so it is very quiet. The surrounding area includes restaurants and supermarkets, so location is very convenient for what you might want. As the motel is quite new, it is in very good condition. I paid a fairly high rate, but was upgraded to a "suite" which was very nice, with a separate living area and a bedroom with its own door. This would be very nice if one person wanted to watch TV late while the other person wanted to go to sleep; didn't matter to me as I was travelling alone, but a nice touch nevertheless. Hotel has a nice indoor pool and exercise room. Staff was very helpful in suggesting which local store had the best wine selection. Breakfast was better than usual for chain motels, with hot choices and cut-up fresh fruit, yogurt, etc., though the pre-made egg patties are not great. A good choice if your travels take you to Houghton.

I stay at Country Inns and Suites when ever possible, this chain has yet to fail me. I was treated cheerfully and informed there was coffee and cookies available in the lobby. When I stopped for coffee after taking my luggage upstairs the clerk heard the sound of an almost empty pot and promptly let me know he would get me a fresh pot. The rooms where clean and fresh. Breakfast was the normal but nice. Wifi would have been nice since I tend to travel with the iPad now and do not have a hardware connection. Would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

We had an opportunity for a quick one night get away to the UP and was fortunate to get a last minute reservation. This is our second time staying here and was once again impressed by the accommodations. Room we had was one of the largest we have ever had in our travels with everything in it being top notch. The elevator was not working when we arrived but by the time we got back from dinner and a drive it was working!
The only drawback that I did see with the hotel was once again with the breakfast. At about 930 they had ran out of sausage and I heard a person ask for more. No more were ever brought out. They also ran out of batter for the waffles causing a person to find the attendant and have her come out to get more. It was a Sunday morning when a lot of people were possibly sleeping in which resulted in the more demand towards the end of the serving time.

We stayed here after returning from Isle Royale. Newer building and nice layout. Rooms are very spacious and lobby is great. The chocolate chip cookies are a nice touch. Breakfast is good and breakfast area is spacious as well. Bed is super comfortable along with the pillows. Staff is friendly. We will definitely be back!

We returned this summer to the Houghton Country Inn & Suites in Houghton. Some great experience, service, facilities, and customer experience. Very pleased that the Inn continues to provide excellence in every way. This year I had more interaction with the housekeeping staff and they were a delight and cared very much about the comfort of my entire family. I was traveling with husband, teenage sons and elderly parents. Highly recommend this facility for business or pleasure - you cannot go wrong.

Room Tip: Just tell them what you need and they will do everything they can to accommodate you.

This is about the 4th time we have stayed here and we are always pleased with the service and facilities. The staff is extremely nice and actually care about what they do. The rooms are just as fresh and well-appointed as the first time we stayed shortly after the hotel opened. The kids loved the pool, and the adults enjoyed the hot tub. Breakfast was quite good, offering more options than other similar hotels. It was very easy to eat healthy there. Of course, the chocolate chip cookies are always a treat. The hotel is also an easy walk to the Mine Shaft Restaurant, so there is no need to load/unload everyone in a car for dinner.

Room Tip: The quietest rooms would be on the back side of the hotel, although the whole property is quite quie...

From the time we entered the lobby, we felt very comfortable. The staff were consistently friendly, very helpful, and having coffee available all day is a treat! Our room was clean, comfortable, and well appointed. Internet access was very easy .

We were located on the 3rd floor away from the meeting room which was in use both evenings of our stay. Unless we walked by the area, we would never know it. Our room area and hallway were very quiet. We were able to travel with ease to Lake Linden, Hancock, and other areas -- pretty centrally located!

The hotel is a short ride from downtown restaurants -- this is an easy drive and with Michigan Tech in Houghton, the restaurants are plentiful and very good. Breakfast was good!
