We've stayed in Houghton so many times, and we've come back to the Holiday Inn Express for most of those stays. The staff is friendly, check in is quick and easy, the rooms have always been clean. This last stay was no different. Though everything was up to "snuff", the reason for the 4, versus 5 point rating is the fact that the bath fan comes on automatically when you turn on the bath light.. Petty? I suppose, but I like a HOT shower and a WARM bathroom when I am done showering. The bath fan sucks out all the heat in the room----I end up cold (wah!). I am an adult, quite capable of turning on a bath fan to clear the humidity in a room------WHEN I'M DONE. The fan was VERY loud, and since there was no outlet in the bathroom to plug a night light in, it meant switching on that LOUD FAN in the middle of the night-thus waking up dear hubby. This is small and petty, but a big turnoff to me.
The rest of the stay was very nice-and quiet too!
I will always stay here, but the fan----well, that's gotta go!
