We stayed on the third floor with a balcony. The room was clean and comfortable. Front desk staff was accommodating to any question we had. The pool was just the right size! We will definitely be back as the area has a ton of things to do. Thanks again!

Stayed here for business, have wanted to stay here because it's lakeside. I was a little disappointed, room had great view but was a little over priced for the time of year. Room was clean, had fridge and coffee maker, no microwave. Bed was comfortable but pillows were horrible...it was convenient to where I needed to be. They offer breakfast...

Stayed here for 4 days this past weekend with my grandchildren. Had a great time, great room with a great view. The weather could not have been better. We did winter activities and enjoyed the pool. We were on the pool floor so that worked out real good. I have stayed here before and every time it has been great....

We went up for the Higgins Lake winterfest with the grandkids and stayed here. Recently renovated and in beautiful condition. Used the pool and hot tub every evening and completely satisfied with continental breakfast. Janette was our chamber maid and was excellent. Highly recommend and at $258.00 for 4 nights using Groupon.

We stayed 2 nights with 3 other couples. Rooms below us had professional DJ equipment playing into the morning hours. The next day they were doing fireworks. Several people complained yet mgmt allowed this to continue!! The management's lack of action and lacklustre attitude ruined the weekend for everyone in that hotel except one group! It's too bad because the...

Beachfront Hotel was a wonderful weekend getaway! It was a great location in Houghton Lake near the local restaurants- Limberlost, Buccilli's, Kilkare and within a short driving distance to trails and skiing. The rooms were very cozy, beds are super comfortable, and the staff was friendly. It was very neat watching the snowmobiles go from the parking lot right down...

We've visited scenic Houghton Lake for New Year's Eve - Beachfront Hotel offered a deal on Groupon and sure enough - deal it was. Hotel was nice, window view of frozen Lake spectacular and cleaning/amenities were plentiful.

Purchased two nights through Groupon for $109. Great price for horrible service. When asked what some of the fun things we could do as a family within a 2 hr radius they said nothing just Walmart. When prompted about renting snowmobiles or other snow related activities they said there was nothing. Feeling annoyed, I looked up activities and found a...

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.

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...
