“Got everything right”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2013

Extraordinary attention to detail and level of personal service for a budget chain. Front desk staff were at Four Seasons level. High quality chocolate chip cookies and coffee available 24/7. Gym had equipment which was a pleasure to use and staff was totally accommodating with access hours. Room was huge and well appointed. Two large-screen TVs, refrigerator and microwave.

The facility is new, with a fire going in the lobby fireplace 24/7.

Our room was clean and quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was substantial and satisfying with some healthy choices available. Many restaurants nearby and a Walmart just down the street for any last minute needed food or items. We will stay here again when back in the area.

Great hotel. Good location. Fun place to eat next door with bowling and sports bar. Definitely a flagship property for the Country Inn.

Stayed here for the Lake Superior Pro Rally. Great event.

Really helpful sincere staff. The whole community is very friendly. It's noticeable. Just really good people in this area.

Actually we have stayed at this hotel a half a dozen times since March 2013 due to a having a student at Michigan Tech. Each trip the hotel has been clean, quiet and accommodating.

If you have a student...make sure that you make your reservations for popular events well in advance. If you are just visiting the area it may be worth checking the University website so that you avoid busy times such as graduation.

It may be a small thing, but I believe that the fact that they have their container of chocolate chip cookies filled at all times shows their attention to detail. As a frequent traveler I can say that it is depressing to drag into a lobby late at night only to find all the cookies gone because they set out one batch at 2pm.

The bedding is updated, the towels are adequate and the toiletries are better than average.

Breakfast contains the basic hot and cold items...and the obligatory waffle maker. If you don't have time they have to go bags with fruit, a granola bar and a water bottle.

The pool area is well kept and the hot tub is, well, hot.

There are a number of places to eat right around the hotel, both fast food and sit down restaurants. Walmart is right next door.

The Country Inn and Suites was like a luxury hotel after spending 2 nights in Silver City AmericInn.

Nice, clean hotel with pleasant staff. Beds were very comfortable and the hotel was quiet although located near a WalMart.

Would stay again for sure.

We traveled to Houghton to spend a couple days with family. We stayed a Friday/Saturday night. Everyone at the Inn was very friendly. Our room was next to a stair; but was still very quiet. It was clean and well stocked. Our King size bed was very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

They staff was great! The provided for all our needs. When we left our bathroom supplies at home they provided us with a personal sized of everything we left at home. The breakfast was great. The lobby had an aroma of fresh baked cookies. We had a room on the backside of the hotel and it was quiet. The windows open to allow cool fall fresh air into the room. I really like that! We WILL be back to this property in the future. Oops almost forgot the price for our two day weekend stay was GREAT!

Room Tip: I bet all the rooms are good choices. The property is on a hill away from street noise.
