“Very clean and wonderful views of the lake!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Very friendly and accommodating staff. Wish I knew all the names of the 3 or 4 girls we dealt with, but only know Melissa. Thank you so much to all of you. My family had a wonderful weekend. We will definitely stay at Beachfront next time we are in town.

Very beautiful area. Private beach, indoor pool (heated!), hot tub, small play ground area, and included breakfast in the morning. Rooms were very clean, and walk out room was perfect for the kids to play outside. Arcade room was not working, all the games were off and a sign was on the door. The workout room has a treadmill and a cross ramp machine only. None of this mattered however, as the weather cooperated and we were able to do all the outside activities. Close to the restaurants, shopping, putt putt places, movie theater, good location. Definitely plan on returning to this hotel!

Room Tip: Walk out rooms work best if you want to use the beach. Didnt hear any outside noise from the room, a...

My son was married at the Beachfront Hotel. When he was looking for a place for his marriage, he stopped at many place but was impressed with Beachfront. The Hotel overlooks Houghton Lake and rooms have balconies looking out on the Lake. Also, a big part of his decision to get married there was Samantha, the manager. She was so willing to accommodate and make the wedding the special occasion that he and his fiance envisioned. Our family and friends took over about 3/4 of the Hotel. Members of the family were there from 1-5 nights. The hotel is well kept up and all the time we were there, every staff member was helpful and willing to do most anything to make our stay the best. They were also very friendly and just nice to be around. Our whole family was happy and so impressed. We would recommend this Hotel very highly. And again special thanks to Samantha for all she did during the arrangements and while we were there.

Room Tip: There are great rooms on one side looking at the Lake and with balconies overlooking the Lake that h...

We just tried to make a reservation for a week and were told that they have a very strict pet policy. While they do allow some pets in the winter under certain circumstances.... during these low occupancy/winter stays I was told by the reservation/front desk person-
-Pets are not allowed on the Hotel grounds
-Pets must be carried at all times
-Pets can not be left in the room under any circumstances
-Pets must weigh under 25lbs.
-You must pay an additional $25 a day fee.
Sorry.... this is NOT a pet friendly policy!

This motel was originally a best western which closed. It has reopened (don't know affiliation with brand name motels) a few years ago with the customer in mind! Not only is it VERY clean, it has beautiful lake view rooms. They have a little cove in front with a super beach. They also have docking, bbq grills and firepit. The new managment has taken great steps top make sure you every need is taken care of. All the employees are the friendliest I've run into at any motel I've been to. Another great plkus...they offer super deals for groups...."come join the fun in beautiful Houghton Lake, MI"

I stayed here overnight while traveling for business. Check-in is at 3pm, but I was finished with my work at 10am, so I decided to stop by just in case they happened to have a room available. They were able to find a room for me despite being so early, which I really appreciated. I informed the staff that I would be leaving the hotel around 5am, and was told that someone was at the desk 24/7. The hotel was nice and had a cozy feel. The room was clean and modern, and the view of the lake was an awesome and unexpected bonus. The beach was also very pleasant. It was private with lounge chairs and umbrellas available. However, when I was relaxing on the beach, an employee decided to test the sprinklers, which resulted in a very cold and surprising shower. I could have used a little warning! In the morning, nobody was at the desk for about a 15 minute span while I moved things out to my car. I had to actually call the hotel for someone to come check me out. Thought that was strange.

Overall it was a nice stay.

Room Tip: The lake view is beautiful!
