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...

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. I live here and never get tired of the home atmosphere of the lobby and front porch. Hope you get to come again and take advantage...

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...

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...

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. Upon arrival, I had trouble connecting my laptop to WiFi. Kevin spent close to an hour of his time, sitting with me in the comfortable lobby, working to make my laptop accept the hotel's...

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. The 3 choices, 3 Bums pizza restaurant, Subway, and Chinese restaurant are all nearby as is the college dining services. There are also a couple family run diners within 10min of the Inn, but...

We were in the area visiting family and stayed here. We were very pleased with the place...lobby area was more like your own living room, room had everything that we needed to be comfortable. What a gem of a place out in the country!

I've stayed at the Inn a few times a year over the past 10 years since I have three girls who went to Houghton College. The location is very convenient since its walking distance to the school. I have never been disappointed. The Inn has always been clean, beds extremely comfortable, and the area very quiet guaranteeing a good nights...

Just would update the handicap room! Shower needs adjustable seat! Sink needs to be wheelchair accessible a cut out space so legs can go under sink! A higher mattress as it was not comfortable. Should already be equipped with microwave and fridge.

There are some great suggestions. Especially regarding the sink. We'll have to look at the adjustable shower seat as well. I had been under the impression it was adjustable, but I've never taken a shower there. Regarding the mattress. The quality of the mattress we use is excellent. So are you simply saying that the height of the mattress was...

WiFi was good. Use of printer was nice. Room was pleasant. Price was right. Amenities were good, although I would prefer body wash to soap. AC was freezing, which was good for sleeping but otherwise too cold. It didn't seem to matter what level I selected. The stairs were the only access to 2nd floor which made lugging suitcases difficult....

Actually our maid service is daily. :) We noted that the Do Not Disturb sign was on your doorknob a couple days during your stay with us. We do have daily maid service... but because the DND sign was hung on the doorknob we moved on to the next room. In the future let the front desk know that you...

I stayed for 5 nights and it was all very< comfortable and delightful. The staff was friendly and helpful. The air conditioning was perfect for a hot July week. I did some work at Houghton's campus and it's a perfect place for that. Very convenient.
