Hello, We would like to start off by thanking you for allowing us the opportunity to host your stay while in the Houghton area. We apologize if the hotel did not meet your expectations. We continually strive to improve on our weak areas and we will certainly address those areas we identify as being weak in the order of importance. The area we feel most important for all hotels is our front desk and guest services, so we will use this opportunity to stress this with our staff. We hope you will give us another opportunity to show the changes made to the hotel. Hotel Management

Felt like we were not treated equally

Posted Jan 18, 2014
Pros: Rooms with canal view would have been amazing. The staff were nice. View from the bar & restaurant were spectacular. Breakfast included.
Cons: Treat Expedia customers to the same room quality as those who call them direct.
I had read reviews that most rooms were renovated, but some not. I called in advance to see if we would be in a renovated room. (We made our reservations almost 3 mo ago). They said no on both of the rooms we reserved because we made the reservations on Expedia and got a discount. Not only did we get "discounted" rooms, they were on different floors. The connecting room you would have thought our travel companions would have been in had very loud people in it, loud enough that we had to turn the tv back on at 12:15am just to sleep. The walls were thin.

Pros: The staff, the beautiful views from the room and the restaurant and the quality of the food.
Cons: I would have preferred a thermostat in the room instead of a high low heat button.
Location: We walked to town, Michigan Tech and the local hockey arena.

Nice locaton for a neat city of Houghton

Posted Oct 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
Nice facility with a great location to be able to walk the downtown, restaurants, and breweries. Hotel service staff was very friendly and helpful. Big room with a great view over the river, and the view from the bar and restaurant was spectacular, however, some of the furnishings were somewhat dated. Very nice experience!

Great spot close to downtown dining and bars

Easy access parking and helpful staff. Too bad a storm came through and power went out to most of the city, what kind of luck is that!

Hi Doug, Thank you for allowing us to be your host to the Houghton area. Also, thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are glad to see the hotel met your expectations. It is too bad that the weather was not quite as cooperative with you. We will do everything we can to make your stay as accommodating as possible, but that is certainly something we cannot control...we wish we could though! We hope you will come see us again though. Hopefully, when you do, the weather will be just as accommodating as we are with our guests. Hotel Management

Excellent location

Posted Aug 27, 2013
Pros: Location!
Cons: Ditch the old bedspreads and get duvets....
Location: Downtown Houghton, MTU, restaurants....
This hotel is located right at the east end of downtown Houghton and very close to MTU. Was fortunate to get a waterside room and view was beautiful. Breakfast was good but a little pricey. Room was near pool and smelled a little musty but not overwhelming....
