We were in Houghton Lake for my Uncle's funeral. We stayed at the Beachfront Hotel for 1 week. It was a wonderful place to stay. Our room was really nice. Our beds (2 queens) were comfortable. The front desk people, housekeeping, everyone was very friendly and helpful. We had our toilet stop up and they were right there to fix...

Very clean. Decent breakfast with Boiled eggs, waffles, packaged oatmeal, cereal, baked goods, milk, juice and coffee. Nice view of Houghton Lake. Pool area was clean and kept up well, but the chlorine in the hot tub was pretty extreme. Small fitness center with treadmill, elliptical, cable machine and weight balls. Friendly and helpful staff, although when we requested a...

I ended up getting a good deal on a jacuzzi room. The room itself was roomy, had a large refrigerator and a big TV. A few downfalls were the slider handle was barley hanging on by a thread, I didn't use it because I was afraid I'd rip it off. Second the divider between the bed and the toilet was...

I was with an art group spending the day at Arnie's who negotiates for discount rooms eat the Beachfront. The rooms are clan, cozy and in a good location on the lake. It was not swimming weather while we were there, but there was a bon fire in the evening on the beach. Breakfast is served in the mornings.

The hotel was very nice and in an excellent easy to locate area. It was very clean, the staff was friendly and eager to help with any questions or recommendations. We had a view of the lake and it was beautiful. There was a balcony with a sliding glass door so we were able to get fresh air as it...

On a whim we decided to head up north and check all of the fall colors. The front desk staff right away (Karla) was awesome! She helped us find a place for dinner and entertainment as we had NO plan, just closed our eyes and pointed on the map! Our room was very clean, the view was beautiful!! Breakfast was...

We stayed at Beachfront Hotel last fall and my only complaint was the pool and spa room. It was clean but very dark and dingy. To my surprise last month we stayed again and the pool area was bright and cheery! They have painted the room bright blues and greens, also added new lighting! Beautiful!!! We will stay there again!!!

Expedia shows hotel as pet friendly, but hotel has policy of on small dogs (ours is 70 lb) and certain rooms. Expedia doesn't ask or tell. Had some initial panic when checking in, fortunately hotel had pet room and waived small dog policy. They were not happy and after a day of 8 hours of driving in rain, was not...
