Holiday Inn Express Houghton - Keweenaw

Stayed here one night while on business in the U.P. (see also reviews for Holiday Inn Marquette, HI Express Iron Mountain, and Comfort Inn Ironwood).

This is another relatively new, typical HI Express that meets all expectations. It's a couple of miles from the center of town, but there are restaurants and a grocery store nearby.

The room was clean, fresh, and in good working order. No surprises at breakfast - so all was good.

The Internet worked well and the staff was friendly.

I would stay here again.

We stayed here when we took our son up to MTU. It is close to campus. The hotel is very clean and the service was excellent. Very comfortable beds!

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Houghton on business in January, 2008 (and have stayed there previously as well). Overall, the hotel is a solid value. It has a good location, the rooms are clean, with the amenities you'd expect at a Holiday Inn Express, and the staff is helpful.

The hotel's fitness center is decent, though not remarkable. The elliptical machine was too squeaky to use without driving yourself crazy from the noise, but the treadmill worked fine. The hotel's business center could use some serious work; the printer was very inconvenient, as it jammed unless you fed every page separately. Even then, each page came out crooked.

It's convenient to Michigan Tech, adequate parking, decent breakfast setup, reasonable amenities. Here's the problem: I stayed there once and it was fine. The next time I made a reservation through the Holiday Inn Express Web site and found I had to cancel my trip three weeks before my intended stay. It turns out that if you book online, the total cost of stay is completely non-refundable and so i lost the cost of my hotel booking..I called to see if i could get a partial credit for a future stay and was told there's nothing they could do about it. My advice is if you are going to stay there is to call the property directly to book, ask them for their cancellation policy. DO NOT BOOK ONLINE FOR ANY REASON OR YOU RISK LOSING YOUR $.

This hotel and Country Inn and Suites are great if you need to stayover in Houghton for MTU visits. The HI Express is good, except if you're on the 2nd floor above the atrium, breakfast bar area. In the morning, if there are large groups you can hear talking that carries up in the early a.m. which can be a little distrubing if you need to sleep a bit later; otherwise, its close to MTU, a few restaurants and the Wal-mart. Staff is good to deal with.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for three days over the 4th of July weekend in order to attend the Guts Frisbee Championship. The hotel was very nice, convenient, and comfortable. The room was large with a couch and the bed was comfortable. Wireless internet service worked very well. The breakfast was above average and featured a server with strawberry shortcake on Saturday morning. The staff was very helpful and we were able to extend our stay for one additional night very easily.
