My boyfriend and I came to Houghton to visit my sister at MTU. We are not difficult to please, and did not require any fancy frills with our hotel. And the beds themselves were actually quite comfy, to our surprise.
Parking and distance to MTU were great. High speed internet, great. Check-in fast and easy. Continental breakfast could've been better, I generally like SOME source of protein, but then again we could've gone to a fancier hotel if it was all that important.
What we DO require during a hotel stay is hot water for a shower! The maintenance man advised us to "let it run for a bit". Well after 20+ minutes of wasting water, our shower was tepid, and had almost no water pressure. We made do with sponge baths with the hot water that came out of the sink.
The second night we arrived in our room to find a huge infestation of ants all over the bathroom floor. I understand that ants can be pesky, but this infestation was pretty disgusting. We changed rooms.
Once re-settled, we made our way down too the pool to find a party of at LEAST 20 people who appeared to be college age - possibly because each of them had a beer can or beer bottle in each fist! They were loud and rude, clogging up the hot tub and making it impossible to enjoy the remaining space of the pool. I complained to the young man at the front desk - he managed to leave the movie he was watching on his laptop to talk to us. He apologized. We headed back to our room to change and visit my sister - when we left, he was watching his laptop again, and the party in the pool seemed to have gotten more raucous, but there certainly hadn't been one thing done about the alcohol and glass in the pool area! My boyfriend and I were livid.
Next time, we'll stay ANYWHERE but here. To be fair, we could've been more demanding, but nobody wants to be that rude person who makes an embarrassing scene by screaming at the poor hapless employee and throwing things, but now I wish I actually had.
