Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GRMI Great Place in Houghton
We have stayed at this hotel several times since our son enrolled at MTU. It is a very short drive from the college and located near shopping and restaurants. The staff is always great, the rooms are clean & comfortable, and the area is safe with plenty of parking. We love the continental breakfast in the morning. If you are staying at the hotel to visit someone at MTU you will learn quick you can avoid the downtown Houghton traffic by taking the road the hotel is on and come into campus from behind the residence halls to save some time. There is also a pool and small fitness area. We have never had any complaints when staying here and already have reservations booked here for upcoming visits. Houghton is a beautiful area and this hotel is a great place to stay even if you aren't visiting the college.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brownsgirls13 Great stop on our UP tour
We stopped in to shower, regenerate our bodies, and do some much needed laundry. It is a great hotel. Clean, friendly, safe, and easy to find. Laundry facility was nice, pool was great, and even loved the sauna. The staff seemed to really like their jobs and were helpful with any requests. The room was clean and well taken care of. No complaints! simply a great break on our camping tour of the UP!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Starman59 Great, quiet place to stay!
I couldn't be happier over the experience of staying at the HIE in Houghton. The staff was extremely nice and helpful, the room was very clean and quiet, the location was excellent for all activities, the breakfast was tasty and ready at the appointed time, etc. The only issue I had was that sometimes it took several attempts using the room key card for the light to come on. Otherwise, I thought this was an excellent choice. The next time I come to the Keweenaw, I'm sure I'll stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Houghton.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Coulio Pricey but comfortable
I have traveled extensively and always stay at Holiday Inn Express.
The HIE at Houghton is very nice but I paid more here than any other I have stayed at. Why? I don't know why this one charges more.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bigbunny nice hotel, good location
A new hotel with good size rooms. The staff was great; was able to change to another room when we checked in due to parking considerations. Lots of shopping and restaurants close. Will stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oskari a pleasant stay
My wife and I were in town for the FinnFest and stayed 6 nights. We were pleased the hotel participated in welcoming the event to the area. The signs on the tables and the coffee, cookies, mini-subs from Jimmy Johns in the conference room were a nice touch. I brought my road bike and the location enabled me to to connect to the bike path that took me to Michigan Tech where many of our lectures and events were located. A nice breakfast allowed us to get a good start to a day full of activities. The room was spacious and comfortable especially considering the length of time we were there. Staff reflected the friendliness and hospitality we would expect from people living in the UP. We stayed an extra day past the event so we could relax and unwind. An extended bike ride followed by a nice sauna (one of the better hotel saunas I've been in, actually had good heat) and a dip in the pool provided a pleasant ending to our stay.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Clevesjm Worst stay at a Holiday Inn Express ever
I choose HI Express because they have been high quality for the past few years. This stay took me back to the days of inconsisent service. I am Platinum and realized when they did not recognize my status at check in that this was going to be a "questionable service" stay. They gave us room 211 which is right above the smoking area outside the front door. It stunk. When I mentioned they should make that a "smoking room" or at least warn people, they just said "we'll tell the manager." No effort to correct the problem. Breakfast service was terrible. The juices had the "refill needed" light on the whole time we were down there. No protein was offered except the saugage gruel. When I asked if bacon or sausage was going to come out (one of the trays was always missing) I was told "No, just the gravy today." I asked about the juice and was told "I'll get to it." I remember stsys like this years ago before the breakfast standard was raised. Hopefully it isn't a foreshadowing of things to come with HI Express.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cheryl95 GREAT SERVICE
Carla and her staff at the Holiday Inn Express are awesome. We have been staying at the Holiday Inn for the last 3 years every time we come to Houghton for a home football game and lots of times in between. They are no doubt the best hotel in Houghton. Yes we have tried ALL the others and they are #1, Friendly service, great breakfast, newly remodeled rooms, and everything always just feels clean... I would highly recommend giving them a try!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by craho Great stay, with one complaint.
Very nice night and evening staff, great room, nice pool. Loud, continually barking dog early at 6 in the morning in a neighboring room, and less-than-friendly and unapologetic morning desk staff made a great stay average.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BigDaddy01 Issues with room
We stayed 4 nights and had issues with out key to our room every day. Had to have a person from the front desk let us in our room 4 times. One person sayd this happens with a number of rooms. Really? this need to be fixed. Otherwise a nice stay. Other issues was that the room cleaning crew refused to take anything down from a breakfast tray. Why, first time in 100 stays a year that this happened.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Uncle1900 Great Location for visiting College
Great Location for visiting College. Not within walking distance to college, but not far by car (mile or two). Very Close to Shell Gas station (had nice low price). Also close to Walmart(took college student shopping), Mcdonalds, Culvers, Applebees. Stayed three nights and family enjoyed pool several times. Loved new pancake machine that makes two pancakes within 2 minutes for you. Used it each morning.They rotate the sausage and I missed having that each day. Breakfast was above average. This summer we have spent at least three weeks spread across 15+ hotels with hot breakfasts, and this was a good one. We also went site seeing and found this a great point to start our visiting of the UP/Mines, Light Houses, Army Base, etc. We will stay here again next vacation up to the UP in spring/summer and our visit to the College..
