“Excellent Stay, Great staff”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Everyone seemed to enjoy working there. Housekeeping even gave us clean rags to help us dry our rain soaked bikes. Super clean, great ample breakfast, nice pool, and a nice location. Ann was especially helpful in the reservation process. I doubt that I will ever be that far up in Michigan again, but if I do, I will definitely stay at the Holiday Inn Express!

Room Tip: Upgrade to the double bed suite. There is a nice couch and sitting area. Perfect when traveling wi...

I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. I hope you enjoyed your tour of the Keweenaw by bike. Maybe you will feel the need to come cruise up to Copper Harbor again sooner than you think! We would love to have you stay with us again if you do! Thank you for choosing Holiday Inn Express for your hotel.

We stayed 2 nites and the hotel was clean and nicely decorated. The breakfast was good except for the scrambled eggs which were evidently mixed with milk or water before being scrambled and were chopped into such tinly pieces it was hard to even get a bite full onto the fork. Very tasteless. They did, however, have a big choice including pancakes, yogurt, and much more. One lady at the front desk was very helpful in pointing out places to see and giving directions. Another lady was very officious and let us know that the price we got was like a "gift" and instead of asking for our AARP discount upon check in, we should be grateful to have got the price we did. That was not a pleasant lady!! Thankfully, the other person we dealt with made up for it.

Room Tip: Our room looked out over a hillside of rocks and was actually very attractive.

We were traveling through the Upper Peninsula with our Golden Retriever, and booked the Holiday Inn Express Houghton-Keweenaw as one of our stays. We arrived a little early for check-in, but Mary was able to find us a dog-friendly first floor room that was available immediately. Very gracious at check-in. We loved the clean, comfortable room. The shower was very nice and invigorating! Breakfast was good and we enjoyed staying at this hotel. Check out had a very minor glitch that Ann took care of quickly.

We originally were only going to spend one night in the area, but with so much to see, we decided to extend our stay an additional day. Although the hotel was nearly booked for the second day, Mary went out of her way to make sure we were able to stay the additional day in the same room.
Kim was a great resource telling us what local attractions to be sure to see and the best restaurants in the area for dining.

The staff at the hotel were very friendly and accommodating during our stay. The hotel was easy to find and located just on the edge of the business district of Houghton. The rooms were very clean and up to date and we had a very enjoyable stay.

Very typical Holiday Inn Express. Nice, clean, comfortable room. Ours was larger than what I am used to. The staff was nice and helpful. We did not use it but the pool area was nice. We did use the fitness room which was ok but had no air conditioning. It was extremely hot in there. This place (like all the places in the area) is very pricey. Overall a good stay and I will probably choose it again the next time I am In the Houghton area.
