I have never been disappointed at a Country Inn & Suites and this one is no exception. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the breakfast was good and the staff was friendly. I appreciate that they don't play games with the wifi. You don't need to be a member to get free low speed or pay for high speed wifi. There was two bottles of complimentary water in the room. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Country Inn & Suites in Houghton! It has such a homey, cozy feel to it! I wanted to stay longer because it just was so nice! The bed was so comfortable...the bathroom clean and cute and updated! The lobby felt like the downstairs of a home. Loved that the fireplace was always on and there were couches, coffee bar, snacks and books nearby!! Loved the staircase going to second floor!!!
