Looks nice but lacking in certain key areas. Staff very nice. Don't expect good airflow in rooms, missing furniture and dusting skills need to be revisited. At least the pool was warm this visit, last time it was too cold to swim.
We stayed at the hotel during a recent visit to Michigan Tech and were very pleased with the hotel and staff. The lady that checked us in was very pleasant and helpful. Rooms and bathroom were very clean, which I am very picky about. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast was very good.
