Verified Reviews of Beachfront Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Very peaceful overlooking the lake"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We loved this one night stay and will be back in the future. My husband spent his childhood summers on Houghton Lake so it triggered many fond memories for him. Very clean room and very friendly and helpful staff. We felt the breakfast bar could use some protein but other than that, it truly was an enjoyable stay!

Overall Score3.0/ 5
called for help no stopper in the bathroom sink. .promised us help on the way. no phone call or service on that problem???? television would not turn on. front desk said unplug the television and then plug it back in. however it took two people to move the wood entertainment center away from the wall then back. then it worked. great huh? we had do this each morning. not good. girl at the front desk said ever since they got the new tv's this happens all the time. ..nice eh? so when I had to put my contacts on in the morning I had to walk to the bathroom down the hall to wash the lens off in that sink. however that stopper would not close either. they want a good amount to stay there but don't want to do the little things to keep people coming back. we gone, bye bye.
