Stayed here on an overnight trip to Ironwood. Got a competitive rate and the room was ok. I had read a few other reviews stating that there was a unpleasant smell in the rooms...... well that statement is true! Not sure how to describe the odor, maybe a cross between

I'm very sorry that your stay with us was not a pleasant one. We try very hard to make our guest's stay a happy experience! I'm puzzled about the "smell" you found in your room. We do use cleaners to make our rooms "spic and span", but that should have left just a slight "chemical" smell, if any. Our housekeepers routinely freshen up our rooms to make them smell good. If you found your room that bad, you should have called me immediately, and I would have instantly moved you to a different one! All motels have to deal with room guest turnover, and the room smells that accumulate as a result. It's a hard problem to solve. I'm very sorry that you happened to stay in a room that was unpleasant.

I passed through here last week - in the middle of a snowstorm. I was the only guest on that particular night (April is the snow season in Watersmeet). My room was ready. The heat had been adjusted and I had a nice conversation with the gentleman who checked me in. My room

Thank you for staying with us! Yes, April up here is usually filled with snow, and sometimes on into May! When people down South are planting their gardens, and playing golf, we are often still shoveling snow! Last year, or the year before, I think the ice in Marquette, Michigan's, harbor didn't leave until June! Thanks again for staying with us! You're always welcome here! God bless!

Clean, basic hotel provided great nights sleep. Huge room and bathroom. Perfect location right on Hwy 2. Coffee maker and refrigerator in the room are always a nice bonus. We arrived after the office close but everything was prearranged and communicated nicely.

The Budget Host was a pleasant surprise after 10 hours on the road. The room was large and clean. The owners were very nice. We had a good night’s sleep, and headed on our way to Minnesota the next day.

Yes, all motels have snowmobile trail access. You can take any city street to the trail, EXCEPT Highway 2, Business 2, and Lake street. Our motel is about 1/3 to 1/2 mile from the trail, going down Hemlock street. If you need specifics, please call me. Thanks, Kevin
