This hotel is just on the shores of lake Houghton. Great place, well kept rooms and a nice bar/restaurant. Being on the west side of the Lake gives a beautiful view of the morning Sunrise. The small indoor water park with a nice slide, hot Jacuzzi and a Lazy river and great for the Kids. The staffs were courteous and...

We stayed for two nights here and it was lovely! Staff was friendly and helpful, breakfast was good with plenty of options, room was clean and had a fantastic view! Water park was very well laid-out for families. I was able to sit at a table in the center or even in the hot tub and was still able to...

The Lakeside Resort Bar and Grill was recommended to us by staff at another hotel where we were staying. We had a young server who was on his second day on the job. He was very friendly and sought answers from other staff members when needed. The menu had an abundant amount of choices. I had French dip which was...

We stayed at this resort for the hour it took to realize we were being had, then ran for the door. It's possibly the dirtiest, worst hotel we've even been in, with the worst customer service I've ever experienced. Avoid at all costs. Complete nightmare. You'd be better off in a tent.

The hotel is right on the lake with a magnificent view of the lake from the room, balcony or the dining area. It is clean, the staff is friendly and the indoor water park is fabulous .The breakfast was quite reasonable-great value for the money

Beautiful location right on Houghton Lake, beach front, docks, outside firepit. Lovely to walk along in the morning or at sunset. Kids had a blast in the pool area with the slide, pool, hot tub and lazy river. Room was clean and comfortable. Our check-in receptionist, Alisha, was very kind and helpful. The bar food was not so great, but...

We had a great stay at this beautiful and extremely well-maintained lakeside resort. Located by the lake, the resort has a perfect size waterpark where kids had a blast! The restaurant inside is very reasonably priced serving wide variety of food and drinks. An evening walk by the lake was very comforting and yes, they serve a delectable complementary breakfast...

The employees were very attentive and accommodating. Event planner, Brooklyn, was fantastic helping us plan the event making many very good suggestions that led to a very successful and fun reunion. The staff was quick to help us move the event from the outdoors to a inside room when rain threatened to ruin our reunion. The pizza, salad and cheese...

The room we were in smelled terrible and the carpet was so dirty our feet were black after walking on it. The hotel was infested with spiders I understand they are right on the water but I have never seen that many spiders in my life. The balcony doors on the first floor in our room did not lock or...

The visit started off meeting Jeni at the front desk. She is wonderful and made sure we were well taken care of. The rooms are very comfortable. The waterpark isn't the biggest but you couldn't tell my grandkids that. They had a blast and were soooo tired by the end of the day. They had a great breakfast in the...
