"Close to the water, Michigan Tech and the trail"
We reserved a water-side room a long time in advance to make sure we would get one. We love watching the birds, and boats if it is a summer visit. We enjoy visiting the local beaches for rocks, but we were kept off of them by wind and cold for several days, so it was nice to be able to do some walking from the hotel. It is close enough to walk down town and the trail along the river also runs for quite a long distance if you feel like going farther. Hotel staff is nice and very helpful. Breakfast is sparse, but we did not expect a lot, so that was okay.

"Fun family visit to Houghton"
Late arrival desk assistance was great. Canal waterway was a great view from the room and walking on down the trail into town on Sunday. It was nice to have a city map from the front desk since Houghton traffic is convoluted.

"Just ok, needs updating"
This hotel has an excellent view and settting, but is in dire need of updating. Our room heater was turned down to 60 and was still heating the room plus it was rather loud along with the bathroom fan. Mattresses are bad. Cleaning staff was nice and respectful. Pool had too many chemicals and no towels or sign telling you where to get them (front desk).

"Great view of the beach."
The pillows were great as well as our view. The breakfast was very basic, no meat or muffins. The Staff was very nice and was able to help with the wifi issue I first had. Very close to downtown things and the college. I would recommend a little drive up to Calumet and stop at the Café Rosetta. Really the best find ever.

I love this hotel. I had stayed at the Travelodge before this one and It was not that good at all. There was never anyone at the front desk there when I needed something and the halls were as cold as it was outside there. I love it here because its like family. everybody is friendly and there is always somebody to help when nedded. I also can walk to and from the pool without freezing to death and getting an pnemonia.

"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.

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.

"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.

"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.

"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.

"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!

"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.

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.

"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.
