“Loved the Budget Host Inn”
Reviewed 27 January 2008

My husband and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary with a snowmobile trip to Grand Rapids, MN. The Budget Host Inn provided everything we needed for a fantastic experience -- plenty of parking for a truck, trailer, and snowmobiles, bagels & oatmeal at the front desk in the morning, partnered with advice on which trails to ride, great warm-up spots, and stories about their personal experiences and those of the other snowmobilers staying at the Budget Host Inn.

We stayed in the jacuzzi suite, which was great! It's the first time I've seen real bedding -- real sheets (not the white cardboard stuff) and a comforter with tons of throw pillows, like what you'd have in your home.

It turned out to be a cold weekend and on Sunday morning, our truck wouldn't start. The owners, Leon and Michelle Furlong, drove their truck over to our room to give our truck a jump-start. When our truck still didn't start, they offered to lend us their personal truck to go to church (they knew we were heading to church because we had asked for directions during breakfast). We did borrow their truck and when it warmed up in the afternoon, our truck started so we could head home.

My husband and I had a fantastic trip...without the awesome customer service from Leon and Michelle Fulong, our trip easily could have turned into a bad experience.

We recommend you check out Budget Host Inn. We will definitely stay there anytime we are in the area...the customer service is great and the price is extremely reasonable.
