Upon entering the main lobby of the Inn we immediately felt welcomed. The reception area is more like someone's living room than a lobby; I felt like a book and a cup of tea would have been appropriate activity once we were settled. The innkeeper was very gracious. The rooms were very comfortable and we slept like logs...none of us... More

Quaint setting, but very average rooms. The facility showed its age. It appeared students were in charge of the front desk; pleasant but not dedicated to going above and beyond. Hallway was noisy well after midnight. It seemed like nothing was complimentary; even the coffee was a dollar. Cable TV did not pick up the NFL game or the NLCS... More

This was our second visit to The Inn at Houghton Creek this year- neither was connected to events at the college; it is just a very nice place to stay in this area at a reasonable place. The staff is always helpful & courteous. The rooms are very well maintained- neat & clean. Located adjacent to Houghton College, and, as... More

Next time you're here check that out. Although we are in a rather secluded area there are some activities to in the area. Many require a bit of... More

Inn was easy to find and close to the campus. The proprietor greeted us warmly and was extremely helpful. The room was very clean and provided enough space for two people and their "stuff". Quiet! A continental breakfast, even for a fee, would be nice, especially in the colder months.

Room clean and tidy. Warm and friendly environment. Great location for visiting a Houghton College student. Doesn't offer continental breakfast/snacks but did have coffee machine in room and a pay one in lobby along with donuts due to the homecoming weekend so that was a very nice treat and much appreciated. Lobby area a great place to sit and visit... More

So glad you enjoyed your visit with us. We're especially glad you could use our lobby and porch. So many guests are in such a hurry they can't take advantage of the setting here.

It's a complete no brain-er to stay here if you are visiting Houghton... it has no peers; most people have probably never even heard of this town before, so there aren't many options around! If you are going to the college, it's literally on the campus grounds; if you aren't, it's right on the main street that goes by the... More

We're glad you took advantage of our porch and lobby area. We actually do not typically offer donuts or any type of breakfast here at the Inn with the exception of the college Homecoming Weekend and the College Graduation weekend. You timed that right! :) Thank you for your kind words about our staff. I happen to think their great... More

My interaction with Innkeeper Kevin Austin was excellent, from the very first contact when booking. Kevin responded kindly when I asked for date and room changes.

We are grateful for your kind words. Thanks for your review of our Inn. We realize that dining is bit of a challenge in the area.
