Need more power outlets. Asked front desk for an extension cord or power strip ... no help. I like to stay for business travel ... being able to plug in a laptop, cell phone, etc. is a pain if you have to unplug a lamp and clock radio.Genuine Expedia guest review
The rooms were clean and comfortable. All of the staff members were extremely accommodating, friendly and courteous! I would definitely refer a friend here, and I will choose this hotel again if I travel back to Houghton, MI. :)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location great staff attention to detail!"
Biz trip to HOTON I always stay here these folks keep me coming back. I thought I'd left something behind called them, they researched what I supposedly left then called back a half hour later. Turns out my personal kit was buried in a dark place.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to everything"
We stay here monthly to visit our family. Nice hotel with gorgeous view of the portage canal anytime of the year!Genuine Expedia guest review
Very reasonable rate. Hotel was clean and in decent shape. Great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Breakfast & Water"
Terrific breakfast if you enjoy waffles ... they have the best mix. Just stayed at a Hilton and Radisson who had the no so good mix (HORRIBLE). They do need to add some plugs for business travelers ...we need more places to charge our computers, hot spots, cells, etc.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel in Houghton"
Was very disappointed to find out that they are not a pet friendly hotel. Came 600 miles with our pet, had changed hotel reservations due to fact that the internet said was pet friendly. When talked with staff about was pointed out that their web site did not mention pet friendly but was Expedia's site that had that on. Part of our party stayed here […] and I myself was scrambling to find a hotel in the area for the night that would accomodate the dog. Very disappointed in Expedia suppling false information.

"Good stay for the price"
Visited Houghton for the LSPR rally, which we usually do every year. The super 8 is located near the center of town and is close to everything. The rooms are comfortable and the staff was nice. The hotel and rooms are a bit antiquated, but for the price, we were happy with our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great outlook on lake"
The hotel had all that we needed, including laundry, and the view from the lakeside site was very attractive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very pleasant place with an excellent view. A little hard to get to from the road.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel provides breakfast from 5:30AM. That is a good point.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location with a great view!"
Spent two nights at the Super 8 in Houghton. We had a 1st floor room with a view of the water and shore across the way. The check-in was handled very efficiently. We were informed at check-in that the water service would be shut off in the morning for four hours by the city. The hotel manager had just been notified. They made every effort to let guests […] know and provided plenty of bottled water in the morning. The timing was off for the shut off the next day and was really not an inconvenience at all. I think they handled the short notice and assisting guests as best they could. We did not spend too much time at the hotel so did not use the pool or saunas. We did take time to go out on the deck to enjoy the view. We ate breakfast both mornings in the hotel. The food was the usual fare of cereal, waffles, fruit, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, toast/bagels/sweet rolls, coffee and juice. The food service area was very roomy clean and the area provided to eat was also very clean and spacious. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was nice, but it needs some updating. The carpet was old and stained. The tile in the bathroom was cracked in places and the cawlking around the bottom of the tub was black. I was disappointed that there was no exercise room either. The pool and hot tub were great. The hotel location is great too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Given the room they most wanted to get rid of"
Our room through Expedia was an "accessible" room, right off the front lobby and one that they probably infrequently use, except for on-line pre-pays and those who actually request it. It was clean, but that's where it ended ... no desk, no closet, no sitting chair, no pad / pen by the phone ... just a bed, bathroom, low-mounted rack for hanging items […] and tv on a small drawer-chest. It was noisy at night, with traffic though the lobby (no other entries / exits) and people talking loudly to one another. Breakfast was "prescribed" by their corporate and was spartan at best (did have a waffle maker). We only needed a night of sleep, so with a full motel we didn't request another room, but didn't get our good night of sleep either. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel, service could be better"
Overall we had a nice stay. The room and rest of the hotel was clean and well maintained. The staff however could be more friendly. It seemed like it was a chore for them to answer any questions or lend a helping hand.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value for the money"
Used the pool, tub, and sauna after we settled in for the evening. The hotel was clean and neat in appearance with ample room space. My wife had difficult y sleeping because the bed was not to her liking. Continental breakfast was varied and well stocked with a good sized eating area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice 2-night stay, great view from back deck"
This by far was the nicest Super 8 we've stayed at, with a large comfortable "family room" lobby, past which you can walk out to the back deck and watch the boats on Portage Lake. Also a spacious hot breakfast area shared the same view (offered waffles and oatmeal, along with usual rolls and bagels); I was disappointed the only "protein" was cold hardboiled […] eggs. But the room was very comfortable and quiet, considering we were main floor adjoining the parking lot. However, no microwave or mini-fridge in room was a drawback for our 2-night stay.

"Great views and hotel for the price."
We had a very good 3 night stay. The hotel was better than what was expected. We chose based upon proximiety to waterfront location. The deck out side of our room and the close access to the walking / biking trail rated as high as the great view of the canel during our stay. If /or when we return to the area, we will strongly consider staying there […] again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice location on lake (Houghton, MI)"
This was our first stay at a Super 8 and we were very pleased. The room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast foods were ample, free internet in the lobby was convenient, and the location of the lake was perfect. We'll happily choose another Super 8 in the future.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap and closed to tech campus"
The box spring on one of the two beds in the room was broken. The front desk was notified of the problem as soon as we got in the room. Nothing was done about it during the two days we stayed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"noisy air conditioner"
Everything was very nice and the pool was great, but the air conditioner was so noisy that we had trouble sleeping.Genuine Expedia guest review
"My three night stay at the Houghton Super 8"
I stayed three nights at the Super 8 in Houghton Michigan and was very happy with the entire visit. The hotel staff was very helpful and courteous. The room was very clean and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was well-stocked and much appreciated. The best perk of all was being located right on the Portage Canal and being able to see the early […] morning sun reflecting off the water or having a great view of the hillside on the opposing shore. A#1 all the way! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
First time in a Super 8 in years after bad experiences years ago. Hotel has changed for the better, and this one was a great choice. Good price and quality throughout.....would recommend without hesitation. Great location on the water.Genuine Expedia guest review

"great place...excellent value"
We were heading to Copper Harbor and the hotel was in a great location for home base. Lots of natural beauty nearby, peaceful evenings on the waterfront, two great breweries within walking distance, nice riverfront walking path, great pool & breakfast, very nice room and friendly staff! Whew...did i cover everything? Thanks again Super 8 Houghton!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"nice hotel next to river"
Pleasant staff. Lots of stuff in area. Paved path along the river right out the back of the hotel. Nice facility but has thin walls.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay near Portage Lake."
With relatively low rate, the hotel locates right near the Portage Lake, with very easy access to the lake shoreline! Even you have better budget to live in a more expensive hotel, I still recommend you to stay here for a exclusively nicer window view.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly and helpful hotel"
We were thankful for Alex with all his help.breakfast was nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
Overpriced for quality of room and servicesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Reasonable cost, but............"
Reasonable cost, but really not the best value. Rooms are not sound-proofed very well and the clientele was very noisy, even at 1:30AM. Hard to sleep; kept being awakened. Toilet handle broke and although the front desk clerk was helpful in getting it operational, it wasn't fully up & running (wouldn't shut off without help) and I wasn't offered another […] room. Hotel doesn't provide laundry bags (I have never stayed anywhere that didn't have these available and already in the room) and could only get a garbage bag instead. The morning breakfast leaves a great deal to be desired. Other hotels in the Houghton area that I have stayed at, although a few dollars more, are well worth the added expense.

"It was close to MTU."
We were in Houghton to pick up our college student again. We got very close to the door and everyone helped everyone hold the doors and throw trash away. The motel was very close to his dorm and that made it easy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Michigan Tech."
Get hotel to retreat from helping son pack up College life. Wish I would have known there were no towels in pool area, next time I will check before jumping in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"super 8 in houghton"
By far the best hotel in town. They have tons of room for parking with snowmobile trailers. Nice view on the water over looking the town. The travel lodge in town was horrible in comparisson. Their trailer parking was 3 blocks away under an old bridge. It was terrible. I'll be staying at the super 8 every time from now on. 10 out of 10.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Breakfast less than par, HVAC annoying"
We checked on the Friday of Easter weekend. We stayed at the hotel in the past when visiting our child attending Michigan Tech, so we knew what to expect. The hotel is a need of a major facelift, from the inside out. Some attempts have been made to spruce up the furnishings, but we're talking modular saunder desk furniture and carpet on first floor […] rooms that seem to cover bulges and bumps throughout (kinda creepy). Bathroom sink and toilets 1980 era in terms of size and fixtures, very small and dainty. Beds okay. TV works, but HBO is overmodulated so bass sounds crackle and pop- annoying. Worst part- HVAC units run off and on day and night which interrupt TV watching and more importantly, a good night sleep. This is not uncommon in older hotels, but very annoying! 2nd worst part of this hotel- less than idea "hot" breakfast-- no eggs, no sausages, no bacon or potatoes like other brand hotels now offer. Waffles, pre-bought danish, some old fruit, cereal, yogurt and boiled eggs. If that is okay for you then the price can't be beat here in Houghton. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The only complaint that I had was the multiple trips that each of us had to make throughout our stay to the front desk because our Keys failed to work. Also the fact that they knew that the rear entry close to our vehicles with trailers and snowmobiles seldom worked ,forcing us to walk around building to front (rather unhandy at 4 below zero without […] a coat when you just made a quick trip to a vehicle) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel for a great price!"
Very clean, quiet and comfortable. The free breakfast had a very reasonable selection of oatmeal, cold cereal, juice, fruit, yogurt, hard boiled egg, coffee, tea, milk, toast, cinnamon roll, fresh waffle. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. I would definately stay here again. This is usually where I stay when i come to Houghton...not as many […] frills as Holiday or Country Inn, but it gets the job done at a much more affordable price. My bed and pillows were very comfortable too. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
