This was my second stay here. Rooms are very clean and the location is very convenient to restaurants and shopping.

Overall was pleased with hotel. Housekeeping could have been better. Due to short staff (I assume) housekeeping was not up to my standard. Should have been told at check in what the schedule was. We had a suite (not a regular room) which apparently means you only get housekeeping after third night of stay, which is fine if I had been made aware of it. Had to ask for towel replacement twice (within a four day stay). I will say though the staff was very accommodating when I requested towels. The suite however was roomy, clean which are my requirements for a hotel. The property itself was well kept and located within easy walking, driving of restaurants, and a short distance to downtown Houghton. Check in was very easy and fast and the staff very pleasant which is another requirement for me. I would stay here again.

Clean and spacious!
We had the suite, that included the living and dining room areas. The suite was very spacious and clean. Loved the comfortable king sized bed as well. We will definitely be staying again when we come to Houghton. Great location!
