Quality Inns and Suites did a nice facelift to the iconic Travelodge. New brickwork and siding on the outside and new carpet and fixtures indoors. The lobby looks very nice now and the breakfast area has new tables along with some extra food items. The pool looks like it's been upgraded but I'm not certain as I never used it...

Stayed here for 3 nights. Located right on main drag of Houghton, close to lots of food, small shops, river / canal with walking path. About 5 minute drive to MTU Campus. Front desk staff cheerful and efficient. The hotel is built into a hillside overlooking the canal. Asked for and was assigned upper (6th floor) room. Lots of stairs...

The hotel is right down town and has been redone. The pool area and exercise areas are great. The shower and toilet area are really small, but the folks working the desk and the breakfast lady, Donna, were great. Donna made us feel like we were guest in her own home. She was fantastic. For no other reason, go because...

This is probably the most overpriced hotel I've ever stayed in. It is an old motel that has been remodeled, but it can't overcome problems like tiny bathrooms, noisy rooms, and inconvenient parking. Our room had fruit flies. The beds were comfortable and hot breakfast items were available, but I would consider this an $80/night hotel charging twice that based...

We stayed at the "new and completely remodeled" hotel. It was just OK!! The carpeting had not been replaced. They did, however, replace the old CRT TV sets with lcd tvs. Too bad they did not set them up correctly. The picture on the new set was very small and didn't come close to filling the screen. The bed was...

First stay in the hotel. It has had some recent renovations. Not sure what has changed. Lobby area looked updated but musty oder. Staff was good and cookies in lobby. Layout of property is kind of unusual. Room was acceptable. Low ceiling in room was kind of different and made noise from room above seem "closer". Parking can be tight...

Good location on the main drag, a brief walk from restaurants and Keewenaw Brewing Company. Spillover parking is in an adjacent public deck (free).

Creatively adapted remodel of an old building. Great location. Clean, except for the mildew smell coming from the bathroom fan. Cannot open room windows to outside air, they open to the enclosed walkways and stairwells. Gets stuffy, and I don't like runnung the air cond all the time. Great people.

The facility is off the beaten path, so provides quiet for sleeping, and spectacular views of the lake. It's literally footsteps away. You can sleep with the windows open and enjoy the cool air and wake up to water lapping on the shore. Staff friendly and helpful.
