After reading the reviews here, I probably would not stay here. However, you are at an Econolodge for petes sake and for the price, I don't think it can be beat. The desk people were all nice, the room adequate, breakfast good, coffee free! No animal smells of any kind, sheets clean, bathroom clean, however needs to be updated. We... More

Very Clean! However the bathroom left a lot to be desired. Teeny - toilet faces the tub with about 4-6 inches to spare. Beds were hard and you can definitely tell they need to upgrade locks, window trim, doors. Altho clean and fairly cheap I would opt to pay more for a newer, updated room. Staff was very pleasant and... More

Upon arrival (after driving for 11 hours) I was told they didn't accept cats... only dogs. Then why do they say they are "pet friendly"... when it should state that they are "dog friendly". Because I had... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Iron Mountain Econolodge. We had a wonderful rate so I was a little apprehensive until we arrived. I thought we could possibly encounter a less than wholesome stay. I shouldn't have worried. There must have been a recent remodel. The hallways were clean with neat carpeting even the doorways were without the usual mars... More

Our disappointment started at check-in when we found out our king room was not available. We were given a 2 queen room instead. Our room smelled like wet dog and food was left in our refrigerator. We want to the WalMart across the street to get a can of Febreeze to make the room smell better. The toilet seat that... More

There are 2 TV's and 2 a.c. units, fridge,microwave, little seating area, fold out couch. We were pleasantly surprised with everything. We liked how private it was. The bed and tub are in a... More

Clean rooms, comfortable beds, quiet area, courteous staff, nice breakfast. What more can you ask for? Free WiFi worked great from our room (205) and in all common areas. Pool and hot tub were very clean. Would definitely stay here again!
