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
"close to snowmobile trail"
it did the jobGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very convient for parent of MTU student. Breakfast is a plus. The bed ; however, was not comfortable. I woke with pain in my back. This time the it was more expensive to stay here and out of line with quality of the motel.Genuine 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

"Great location, easy to find."
Super 8's are not known to be the best quality hotels out there, but this one exceeded our expectations. Our room was clean, the staff was friendly, the breakfast was a little sparce but more than adequate and the waterfront location was wonderful. Very close to the MTU main campus. If traveling to Houghton, I would recommend this hotel and would stay […] there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Beautiful View at a Reasonable Price"
Our room had a beautiful view of Portage Lake, and overall the property was clean and attractive with a friendly, helpful staff. A lovely shore walk runs right alongside the hotel that makes for a short pleasant walk into town. Was a little disappointed with the housekeeping staff, though. They did not vacuum our room or empty the waste baskets during […] out stay. That's just a small complaint, however. I would definitely stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The houghton super 8"
quiet, located just a block from the ferry terminal to isle royale, the reason we were in houghton in the first place!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great motel on the canal."
A little difficult to find as the street is narrow between 2 frat houses of Michigan Tech. But the setting couldn't be better: on the water with walking path to downtown and great view of bridge between Houghton and Hancock. Who knew the Dee Stadium on this path is the Birthplace of professional hockey in 1902!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Gem in Houghton"
We were delighted with our three night stay at the Super 8 in Houghton. It was much nicer than we had expected with a two star rating. It had everything that a three and some four star rated hotels have except for no microwave or fridge. We will be back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to everything"
Stay was great. Love sitting on the deck or the piers behind the motel, so peaceful. Only wish the breakfast lasted until 11 as I am used to central time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good place to stay in Houghton"
We booked a night's stay here before taking the Ranger III to Isle Royale. The hotel is very convenient to the NPS ferry dock. I appreciated the early start time for breakfast as we had to get an early start the morning of our departure. My only complaint is that the room smelled a little smoky or musty. I would guess that the room had previously been […] a smoking room and the beds, carpet and drapes have not been replaced. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great location / views. Terrific pool, sauna, and breakfast ... love the waffles. Did I mention the waffles? :)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice stay with a view"
We had stayed in two different Super 8's the previous two nights, one terrible and one so-so and were very concerned as we had four nights booked here. What a difference! Very pleasant room, great view, outside picnic area, nice pool and whirlpool. The breakfast was a plus with a variety of choices including fresh waffles and the dining area included […] the pretty view. The staff gave us some good tips on local restaurants. This Super 8 was totally no smoking and that makes a big difference in not having to deal with intrusive smoke odor. (I think most Super 8's allow smoking in some rooms--it still filters into the hotel) The ice machines were slow dispensing ice, but a small downside. It would have been nice to have the option of a frig in the room. And, for handicapped or older travelers, a ground floor room should be requested as there is no elevator. All in all, this hotel is a very good value and we would definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, price & more"
Nice hotel, reasonably priced, right on the water with outdoor patios, good free breakfast and located on a scenic walking trail. Close to downtown Houghton...easy walking distance to Joey's Seafood & Grill (great food at reasonable prices) and the Keweenaw Brewing Company.......wide variety of homebrewed beers.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Central location, Helpfull staff"
The check in process was non existant thanks to Hotel.com. The beds were hard and the the room needed some touch up cleaning, the remote control didn't work but both were taken care of promptly. The staff was knowledgeable about the surrounding area and willing to offer suggestions.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not bad for the price"

"comfortable and clean but small design flaw"
We stayed in a lakefront room--beautiful view, nice breeze through the screen window. Very comfortable beds and pillows, no odors in room. Carpet and bathroom floor were clean. Nicely maintained. Odd design though--the light switch for the bathroom is OUTSIDE the bathroom door. So everyone in the room is disturbed by the bright light when you have to […] flip the switch on the outside wall and then close the door. Fan doesn't stay on (cycles on and off# which disturbs light sleepers. #That's why we opened the window.) These are small issues--we would definitely stay again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I understand that Super 8 hotels are not Marriott's, but the carpeting in our room was very, very dirty with many spots. It only lead me to wonder how clean the rest of the room was.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
over all a nice place, with a beautiful view over looking the water.Genuine Expedia guest review

"experience was okay, but uncomfortable."
location was difficult but beautiful on one side facing hills and water. Beds were uncomfortable and so were the pillows. Hard to understand the attendent at counter.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall good experience."
Hotel experience was better than I expected. Was on the lakeview side, so the view was great. (Other side would NOT have been as great.) Hotel lobby and breakfast area were pleasant and did not have that "desolate" feel that a lot of the chain motels of this type have. Overall good experience. Nice location close to Michigan Tech campus.Genuine Expedia guest review
"My first visit: Enjoyable"
This was my first visit to this area up north of the us, and my first sight of snow. The scenery was great, the people were very nice, breakfast was good, and the location was very convenient for me. Close to the airport, and close to a small town to do some sightseeing and shopping. Cant wait till my next visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right on the Snowmobile trail"
Hot tub and sauna were nice to get in after riding all day, hot tub wasn't very warm though, overall it was a nice stay, clean room and breakfastGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy walking distance to MTU and downtown Houghton"
I chose Super 8 because I wasn't sure I was going to rent a car while I was there and needed to get to MTU to do business. I ended up renting a car, so it didn't matter, but the Super 8 has great/cheap rates for the area and the "lakeside" view room was worth the upgrade. The service was excellent (except for housekeeping, which didn't come the second […] day because we left the Do Not Disturb sign on until after 11am, so they just skipped us that day. No big deal, but FYI.) My only complaints were the limited breakfast buffet (I'm glad I brought some fruit with me -- I just don't enjoy a lot of carbs at breakfast) and the loud snowmobilers, who were up at 4am stomping around with all their gear. The walls of this place are pretty thin, and in winter it's one of the big snowmobile places, so bring your sleeping pills. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice place to stay. Walking distance to downtown restaurants. Hotel is located right on the snowmobile trail, so it's pretty noisy. But I would assume all the hotels get a lot of snowmobile traffic this time of year. Room was clean and comfortable. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The only problem we had was some drunk snowmobilers came in around […] 0230 banging on our door because they couldn't remember their room number. But I've actually experienced this at many hotels.
