It's a budget motel without extras, but it's inexpensive, clean, and the owners are friendly and caring. They allow pets and they have a wheel chair accessible room. We could stay elsewhere when we visit our son in college but we choose to stay here.

Room looked and smelled very old. Bed was not comfortable and may have had bed bugs in it. Corners and edges of room were dirty and we found a spider web. I wouldn't dare look behind the furniture. Air conditioning unit looked to be 30 years old and was noisy. Furniture was damaged and outdated. My recommendation to the owners... More

I was scheduled to attend a meeting in Ashland, reserved room for the one night. The morning of the scheduled reservation my meeting was cancelled due to a major snow storm of up to 12" of the white stuff. I immediately cancelled my reservation but they still charged us for the night. There are exceptions to some rules! Hard to... More

Very gracious owners that gave us great directions to eat nearby and connect to the trails. A wonderful "park and ride" place to stay for a couple nights. Reasonable,convenient, clean and very comfortable...definately want to go back again and stay there!!

Second time we rented a room there. Nice and clean - reasonable rates. Room had a small love seat so you had an option to lying down in bed. Good hot water. Bed was comfortable. Owners nice. Motel right across from Lake Superior and down the street from a great Mexican Restaurant.

This hotel has a great location. The large green lawn overlooking the lake is a great place to sit down and have your supper. However the rooms certainly need some work.. Our room had a musty smell which was helped by having the window open for a couple of hours but....the beds are not good. The mattresses were very uncomfortable... More

We have stayed here before several times. The location and view is great! The rooms are nice. We believe very good value compared to the Super 8 a short distance away which is twice or more the price. We haven't had an issue with our room previously, but this time we did. The room was musty smelling. The other rooms... More

The location of this motel is its best feature. It is across the street from a large bay on Lake Superior. They have a large green lawn that is well kept and a few benches and picnic tables for your use. I enjoyed sitting out in my own chair watching the views. My room was clean, but housekeeping could do... More

YELP REVIEWS ON THIS HOTEL ARE MORE TRUTHFUL. I would leave this motel 0 stars if this site let me. For the price ($75 a night) the room is outdated and reeks like decay and mold. Ashland has so much more to offer for a few bucks more. Also, the owner is not friendly. You have to knock on the... More

Older dated looking Motel. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Motel is in an excellent location with a good view of Lake Superior. Wifi available. We would stay here again when we are in the area.
