The staff is A+ and really helpful, but the hotel and furnishings are a little tired and dated. Breakfast and drink coupons were a little bit of a hoax. The hotel management didn't plan accordingly for Preview Weekend at Michigan Tech; they were understaffed and struggling to handle the crowd in the bar and restaurant. The "drink coupons" got us a couple of bar-brand watered down drinks. Parking on a big weekend is very challenging. Hotel choices are limited in Houghton, so keeping that in mind we might end up here again.
