Nice place. Kids enjoyed the water park. Food was great. Friendly staff. Beautiful view of Houghton Lake. Boat dock. Lots to see and do locally. Best burger basket around! The lounge is comfortable and offers a fantastic view of the lake.

The rooms were large and comfortable. The Lake view was great. Food & service was very good. Staff friendly and helpful. Wish we had a little more time to explore the area. There were many little pockets around the Lake we didn't have a chance to see.

The area is a recreational. The hotel sits right on Houghton Lake. There are no 5 star hotels in the area. There are a lot of family friendly hotels and this is one of them The hotel has an arcade area and a restaurant and bar.

We took our two young kids to stay on a Sunday night, hoping the water park wouldn't be busy. We were extremely dissatisfied Waterpark is a stretch for what they have. There is a small lazy river and one slide, but aside from that it's a basic hotel pool. There must have been a party of some kind because there...

We checked into our rooms and within moments one of the children found a hard dried piece of candy on the dresser in the room.. The lamp in between the beds did not work. The kids wanted to immediately go to the water park. when we walked down there, it was an absolute madhouse. So much chaos, no staff whatsoever......

My husband and I took our two children to the water park for fun! We had the exact opposite experience as I thought we would have. For $12 a person you would expect a clean pool and bathroom/ changing area. This place has potential for a nice family afternoon but - the pools were absolutely disgusting; with hair wads floating,...

The room was run down, but bearable. However, when we got the the pool We were so disappointed. Unless you sit, drink beer and don't watch your kids this place is not for you! The pool was so jammed packed with no staff. No one was staffing the water slide and kids went down when they liked. Two kids came...

We stayed in the family suite. Bunk beds were old and noisy.2 queens in separate room which was nice and comfortable. There were 4 adults and two toddlers. One bathroom was inconvenient, Was wonderful having the Waterpark. The kids loved it. The breakfast was great. Nice assortment of breakfast foods. Overlook the parking lot, that is what they call Garden...

I didn't expect much based on the pictures but am thrilled we found this place filled with little gems. The water park was pretty cool - super fast side, little lazy river, hot tub. And there's an arcade for the kids.... And the kids at heart. The restaurant is much bigger than the picture looks with a nice fireplace and...

Alisha greeted us upon check-in. She was very professional and friendly. Made sure we were aware of the water park hours, breakfast hours. "Call if you need anything". Hotel is conveniently located near many amenities - food and shopping and located off the main highway. There is also a full service restaurant next door - with a great selection of...
