“Super hotel. Great prices. Nice view of the water. Excellent location.”
Reviewed September 25, 2011

This is right on the water in Houghton and so close to Michigan Tech. It is right in town by everything. The rooms are nice size and clean. The breakfast is good also. We did not go swimming, but the pool indoors, large and very clean. There are places to sit outside the hotel by the water to enjoy the sites. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel to everyone. The staff was very nice and helpful.

Room Tip: When making your reservation, ask for a room facing the water. It is so relaxing to watch the sun go...

The room was clean and quiet, the parking a bit tight (the hotel was fully booked), the views from the deck made breakfast really nice, the location a bit hidden from the road, the check in person and the check out person were both rude and not concerned with guest satisfaction. If you make it in and out OK, the stay is fine. Another place nearby that I like is the Budget Host east of town, but this is a bit better.

This motel was clean and comfortable. It's location on the channel in Houghton is beautiful. The breakfast room overlooks the water with a very nice view. My only complaint was a rather unhelpful clerk when I checked in. The people around the next morning were much friendlier.

Yeah its a Super 8, and the rooms aren't like boutique or anything, but the location is awesome!!! Right on the water, and they have several little docks that you can sit and enjoy the views. They also have a nice deck that you can eat breakfast on if you want. We walked to dinner at Library Brewery (would also highly recommend) and then got a beer at KBC. I had no idea Houghton was such a cute little town with such great restaurants and charm. The breakfast was just okay but I could let that slide since I got to eat breakfast in breathtaking UP scenery.

My husband stays in Houghton on business frequently. We came along for the ride. We stayed in room 118 (which is the largest). The view was beautiful! There is a trail right in front of the window, but people were nice enough not to stare into the rooms. The price was right and the room was clean and spacious. We would stay here again!

Room Tip: The hotel and parking lot were down a road off of the highway. Look for the signs.

I made a reservation here for a short family trip. When calling a month before our arrival to extend our reservation for another two nights, the clerk was unable to find my original reservation and had to rebook the entire stay. Not a big deal, but odd.

When we arrived, we were given a "non-smoking" room that absolutely reeked of cigarette smoke - as if someone was actually still inside, puffing away. The clerk couldn't put us in another room (as the rest of the motel was full), and then couldn't or wouldn't recommend another nearby place to stay. We ended up just canceling our entire reservation and driving down the street to another, more accommodating place, the Magnuson Hotel Franklin Square.

This is a clean, tidy, budget motel in a great location, right on the water. It's a good deal for the price. Nothing fancy, but you're only minutes from downtown Houghton, good restaurants, and area parks. Nice, hot jacuzzi spa and sauna near the indoor pool.
