Cons: Our check in could be improved due to no room available.
Location: Hard to find, poor lighting on the street leading to the Hotel
I reserved the room for a late check in on 7/16/14 or early morning hours of 9/17/14, for arrival after midnight as our flight arrived at 11:48pm. I specifically pointed out to Myra from Expedia that we needed a late check in. So when we arrived they were sold out and my reservation was for the following night. The receptionist was kind enough to call another hotel and again we called the taxi for a ride to the Magnuson Hotel. It was a huge disappointment at that hour having been three different flight to arrive in Houghton, MI for my brother's funeral. Otherwise it was a very nice hotel. I was informed when we reserve a room through a third party that this sometimes happens.

Nice hotel in beautiful locationPosted 7-Sep-2014
Pros: See above for what we liked
Cons: The breakfast and the pool area
Location: The Keweenau peninsula if absolutely beautiful. A must see. Quincy mine at the top of the hill in Hancock was very interesting.
We had a pleasant 2 night stay. Positives are it was quiet (surprising since our room faced the Houghton-Hancock bridge), clean, front desk was pleasant and helpful, price which included breakfast was fair for value, nice deck outside owned by the city but convenient to the hotel on Portage/lake or river. Cons-I should have known to avoid the breakfast burrito after the breakfast sandwich offered the day before led to indigestion, my bad. Lots if items seemed a little stale. Some may like very soft beds with thick pillows and a duvet instead of a blanket, but for us it caused a headache. Overall a decent value offering everything we needed for our stay.

OK hotel for the ratingPosted 22-May-2014 on Hotels.com
OK, clean hotel. The hotel restaurant was also just ok but the service was very good. Great little establishment just a few steps away along the boardwalk that will have the Tigers game on. Go there for a beverage instead of the hotel.

Picking up daughter from collegePosted 7-May-2014 on Hotels.com
We really enjoyed this hotel except trying to figure out how to get to it! My daughter is going to college at MI Tech and booked this hotel for the night so I wouldn't have to drive 18 hours in one day. Everything was very nice about the hotel, expect the hot tub was way too hot and the pool was way too cold.. and trying to figure out how to get to the hotel. My gps didn't give very good directions as to how to get there and I had to cross the bridge a couple of times before figuring out there was a side road to go down to get down the hill and get to the hotel.

Family eventPosted 30-Apr-2014 on Hotels.com
Our family stayed here while attending a funeral. Yes sad event, but the restaurant at the hotel made for a great place for the whole family to enjoy dinner and catch up and talk about our grandmother who passed. It was a solemn event but the Ramada made it very enjoyable to be with our family.

A nice choice for Tech ParentsPosted 23-Apr-2014 on Hotels.com
We found the Ramada to be at least a step above the Travel Lodge or the Super 8 in Houghton. Being across the bridge in Hancock, we were a little concerned it may not be as convenient, but we didn't find it to be a problem at all.
