While this hotel is about 10 miles from Houghton and MTU, it is worth the drive because it is very clean and welcoming. They have a nice pool and sauna and their breakfast is very good with fresh eggs and sausage, make your own waffles and all kinds of healthy foods too like yogurt and cottage cheese, hard boiled eggs and muffins. Good coffee too. Beds were comfortable although the pillows were a little soft for my taste. The hotel is very clean. The only downside is how far it is from MTU but then you are closer to drive around the peninsula.
