Holiday Inn Express Houghton - Keweenaw

We stopped here while waiting for the ferry to Isle Royale and on the night we got back. Even though they were doing major remodeling, and that is usually not a good deal when we stop at hotels, this worked. Desk was efficient and friendly, breakfast was what we have come to expect at an express. Rooms look new and are very nice. We had a room with a view of a mountain of loose rocks, very curious, but it is a mining town. Better than the usual parking lot view. We are two families so we reserved a regular room and an adjoining a suite. Worked great for us.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking huge mountain of rocks are on the backside of the hotel.

This is a newer hotel in the commercial strip area of Houghton. It is easy to find and get to, and there are several restaurants and shopping close by. The hotel is currently undergoing some renovations. The lobby was under construction. It was a little messy, but didn't really impact the use of the space. I had a newly remodeled room, which was very nice. The bathroom and furnishings were all very nice. The breakfast was also very good with a decent variety. My reason for not rating this very good was due to the construction. Otherwise, I would recommend this hotel.

We stayed here because it was free with my husband's hotel points, but it was under construction in the lobby so it was messy and noisy. Its a bit out the way from downtown Houghton too. The room was fine; there just wasn't much else.

Due to tripadvisor I was aware that this place was under renovation. When we arrived we had to step past two workmen to get in the front door. Once in we checked in and found our room was nice and clean too. We had two queens non smoking. The lobby of the motel was kinda torn up but the next morning we had a nice breakfast here I got two ham ans cheese omelets and bacon. They also had bagels,eng muffins,cereals,fruit,coffee and juices served in a nice room with flat screen tv. We say the renovations were not a big deal but of course I woulda preferred them to be complete before we got there. I suppose a construction discount is asking too much......

Room Tip: Get one facing the front as the back ones face a huge rock pile...if view is your thing.

Yes, the rooms are clean and quiet but the lobby and landing are taped off with plastic sheets draped around. The construction crew came into the breakfast area at the same time we did. Needless to say they knew their way around and most of the eggs and saugages were gone by the time we served ourselves. What were left we're the driest scrambled eggs ever! Glad we got a good night's sleep or we would have complained!

They seem about half done. The main lobby is still torn up. Lots of equipment in the parking lot. But on a weekend the place is very quiet and the Internet is blazing fast. We were in a room that was not yet renovated and it was just fine, clean and comfortable. We got a great rate, better than what the posted range is here so we aren't complaining.

Hotel is still under renovation, but rooms are clean and well kept. Location is handy to MTU, especially to the hockey stadium and the new Mineral Museum. Breakfast was better than most HI Expresses, Personnel were very friendly and knowledgeable

Room Tip: We were on first floor near the breakfast room and it was quite quiet.
