“Been here many times.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2011

I get medical treatments at the VA hospital in Iron Mountain, and have stayed at the Mountain Host many times. It is not fancy, but offers the best deal in town, the staff is very friendly and helpful, and they offer a discounted rate to veterans. Another plus for me is the Chinese restaurant right next door which is simple, but excellent. The rooms are clean, and comfortable. I have noticed a faint musty odor at times, but it vanishes quickly, probably because i just get accustomed to it, but it is a sign that the odor is not strong. I will always stay there when I am in town, and recommend it highly.

I stay at hotels about 100 times a year and this one by far is the biggest bang for you buck...$39.99 a night gets you a better room than the Comfort Inn a mile up the road (which I also stayed and paid double). Internet was fast as well as the check in, so there's no way I'll go back to the Comfort Inn as long as this jewel is around.

Thank you for the great compliment. Out goal is to provide a clean, comfortable place to stay. Our prices went up a bit from 39.99. But we are still in competition with the others. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again!

We stayed at this motel for my husband's appointments at the VA clinic. I was skeptical at first. However, we were very surprised! Our room was spotless and well furnished. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We had a nice little continental breakfast. Just the basics but more then enough. I saw the VA van stop to bring patients over to the clinic. So, that would be handy for some people. Very glad we tried this hotel!

This was the second time we had stayed here, the first in 2006. The place was still as nice as the first time. Rooms were large and very clean. Had great nights sleep. The two women at the desk were very friendly and helpful. For the price charged, this is an outstanding motel.

We reserved a room in July and stayed.We had a lot of ants in our room.We told Carolyn at the desk and she said it had been exterminated 3 days before .We asked for another room and was told the manager had to do that and was out of town.We ask for a refund and was told the same thing.We were told we could call on the following monday and talk to the manager.We were told be the manager that if there were ants in our room we must have brought them ourselves.Very poor attitude.

I am sorry you had a negative experience here. We try our best to keep the pesky ants out, but sometimes it's a losing battle. Your experience here is not typical and we would love the opportunity to prove to you that our establishment is clean, comfortable, and our staff has everyone's best interest at hand.

On the good side, this hotel was extremely cheap (only $43 a night and surpassed my expectations). The property was relatively new and in a good location with large rooms. The staff was friendly. My only complaint was that the floors were pretty dirty. My bathroom floor had some hairs in the corners and looked like it hadn't been throughly cleaned. It was still a good deal for what you got, though.
