Good place to stay in Houghton
Nice Great View from the Restaurant
Steve, us1 night trip
Magnuson Hotel Franklin Square, Houghton
Happy to come back
Our room was a corner room with a king bed and seemed very big. We had breakfast in the restaurant and enjoyed looking at the river and ski slope. Only drawback is parking; if you don't park your car early in the evening you need to park across from the gas station and walk. Only tough in the winter.

Magnuson Hotel Franklin Square, Houghton
Great location. Excellent views from restaurant.
The hotel was comfortable and included amenities such as breakfast and a welcome cocktail. Great location for exploring the city. The furnishings need updating, but we were pleased with the hotel overall. Would return.
