This hotel cares about the property and its guests, and it really shows! Great staff! Great manager (Jennifer)! Huge rooms! Very clean! Safe and secure! Clearest hot tub water ever! With just an upgrade in furnishings and linens, this hotel would be at the top of the Choice brands. Right now, you get everything else at a fraction of the...

We were pleasantly surprised to find this Econo Lodge in Iron Mountain! The people were teriffic from Jennifer the manager, to every other staff member we encountered. The hotel was clean and a fabulous value. The bed was comfy and everything was clean, we actually stayed an extra night longer than planned. The free breakfast was great from waffles to...

Clean room, recently painted and decorated, comfortable bed. Older ( but immaculate bathroom), good hot water pressure and nice staff. Breakfast included yoghurt and boiled eggs, fruit cups cereal etc. Only minor grumble was that the heater cycled on and off in the night but most hotels suffer from this. Great value at $63 for 2 of us. Would definitely...

Just needed a reasonable priced place to stay while traveling to upper Michigan. Found it at the Econo Lodge. Its an older motel, but very well kept up. Rooms are very spacious and clean. Beds are comfortable. Especially like when the bathroom sink and mirror are behind a wall, not out in the bedroom area. They offer Wifi. There's also...

Reviewed 8 September 2014

This hotel was very reasonable in price. The living room had been recently remodeled. The carpet looked new and so did the beds. But the bathroom was old and disgusting. Reading some of the other reviews it looked like many had whirlpool tubs in the bathroom. Was disappointed when our bathroom was old and dirty. Wifi was very spotty. Might...

Reviewed 4 September 2014 via mobile

This was a nice stop. It is an older building but there are recent upgrades. Our room was nice and clean. It is hard to find a pet friendly hotel. The front desk person was nice enough to let us use the pool and hot tub until 11pm since we rolled in at 10pm when it closes. We will be...

This is the best EconoLodge in the United States. You're laughing because, well, that's not really saying a lot. We arrived to find out that the computer system had not downloaded call center reservations made that day and so we had our choice of pet-friendly rooms . . . fortunately, it was late enough that we obtained a handicapped room...

We stayed for 2 nights. Our room was smaller than any of the pictures shown and the first impression was that it smelled like a grandparent's old home (old wood maybe?). It wasn't the worst smell, just very noticeable. We had molding in the bathroom in need of painting, but the rest of the room looked fine. The hot tub...

I made my reservation at Econo Lodge in Iron Mountain thanks to positive reviews on TripAdvisor. I was not disappointed. I booked because they would accept my dog for only another $15.00. The outward appearance really is one of the old-time family motels and the interior feels the same. HOWEVER, pet friendly means a room on the lower level with...
