“Very nice place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

I was traveling with my 2 daughters on the way up north. We had stayed at other places in Houghton Lake. From now on I think this will be the place to stay.

There isn't anything special about the Super 8. Rooms were clean and comfortable. We didn't stay for breakfast as there wasn't any room to sit.

The people were friendly.

Room was clean and comfortable, though basic, as you would expect from a Super 8. A chain restaurant and a fast food within walking distance. Otherwise, isolated at a freeway interchange. While the room was comfortable, the plain table would have served well as a desk except that there was no outlet within reach for a light or for a computer. No elevator. Helpful staff.

The hotel manager has a very bad attitude. we recently stayed at the super 8 in houghton lake.
night 1: AC goes out, they look at it, it works for a little bit, at 3 a.m it starts making a clunking noise waking up us and our 2 children, they moved us to a new room.
night 2: the AC unit in the new rooms plug actually sparked and had a small fire, to which it took them over 10 minutes to come to the room, and they didnt believe us when we went down to tell them and were sarcastic with us.
I talked to the super 8 customer service, they gave us a free room for the events that happened there.

When we tried booking our free room the hotel manager, wynitta (not sure on spelling) told us there was no rooms available, i checked online and they had almost every room available, we were lied to. I called back about 6 hours later, the clerk said they had rooms open, and when I told her I would like to book our free night, she told wynitta, and I could hear her in the background saying that they have no rooms available all while I was staring at all the vacancy online. She had an attitude about the situation from the start, which I felt was very unecessary. we spent anywhere's from $300-$500 at that hotel in the nights we were there, you would think she would have been grateful for our stay.

The hotel itself is nice, the pool area is a good place for kids to swim, however me and my family will never stay at this location again as long as she's managing it.

I would give it a high rating, but bad customer service made the whole experience horrible. I added a photo of the plug that cought fire while we stayed here

There was hair in the bathtub and on shower walls. There was a waterline stain in the toilet.The breakfast was minimal. First day there were a few banans, second day no fruit. After that there were apples. There was a basket labeled cinnamon rolls, but there were no cinnamon rolls for four days. Housekeeping staff was friendly.

Travelling from Indiana, this was our 1st trip to this area so we relied totally on tripadvisor reviews for our hotel. We originally booked for 4 nights and it was such a pleasant area & hotel that we extended our stay by 1 more night. From start to finish, you cannot beat this hotel for comfort, friendliness & price. We booked during one of Super 8's promotions, and when I called the hotel to ask a few questions, the gal was able to give me an even better rate than the online special. Not much, about another $1.50 a day off, but hey, who doesn't like a deal! We paid $60 a night for a king efficiency including taxes. We've stayed all over the Midwest, and would return here again in a minute. It was so peaceful to sleep at night. The pool is wonderful, and should win an award on decorations alone! Breakfast is the cold variety, average asst of fruit, cereal, muffins & coffee. But with what we saved on our room, we could eat breakfast out if we wanted. Thank you to the staff for making our stay so great!

Room Tip: We called ahead and requested 1st floor if available & it was provided.

Have come to this exact hotel for three years now and have never been disappointed. We are particularly taken by the charming decor. The pool, hot tub, and sauna are also a great hit with the kids (get a room near the pool!). Much recommended!

Room Tip: If you have kids, get near the pool!
