You won't find anything very fancy in Grand Marais; given that this is the UP and very rural, this small motel with cabins was just right for us. Reasonably priced, plenty of room with two queen sized beds and a bath, with handy fridge and microwave. It was very clean, beds were quite comfortable. Walls of motel very thin, could... More

My wife and I stayed here for a few days during our honeymoon. The staff was very nice and the accommodations were about what we expected. It's not a five star resort, but you won't find that in Northern Michigan. The rooms were clean and the cabins provided a nice view of Lake Superior/the Bay. The owner went out of... More

We used this spot for our headquarters for seeing Pictured Rocks. It is a nice quiet place in a nice quiet community. The mosquitos were fierce in June, the locals all said that was a lot worse than usual. There is a homemade breakfast available from 7 to 9 AM - not your motel continental breakfast, but homemade breakfast casserole... More

...This is the third year my wife and I have stayed in Grand Marais for the weekend. Past two years we stayed at a "motel" in town, but last year we decided to do a little exploring. We discovered a few really nice places to stay right outside of town, but Hilltop Cabins really impressed us. We stopped in to... More

We stayed in room 12 which was clean and well set out with 2 queen size beds, both of which were clean and had decent linen. Beds didn't seem too comfortable but having said that we both slept like logs and didn't ache on waking. A fly swatter was thoughtfully provided and came in very useful. A fan would've been... More

We stayed three nights at the Hilltop Cabins in one of the motel cabins. Hard to gauge the customer service since we didn't meet the owners. Would suggest doing introductions during breakfast, in passing or by making a brief visit to the room or cabin. Upon arriving, there was no one in the office, but they did have our keys... More

I totally enjoyed my stay from the minute I arrived until I left to come home. Jeanette, the owner was warm and welcoming. The cabins and rooms each have their own charm and are clean, cozy and comfortable. All have everything you need to enjoy your stay... Excellent beds...TV.. Radio.. Dishes and cookware.... Linens. The light breakfast available was great... More

I really enjoyed my stay Hilltop Cabins. When we arrived, we walked into the office, and there was nobody there, but they had our keys set out for us. We went into our room, the Gone Fishin room, which was very nicely decorated. The room was clean (though there were a few bugs, which didn't bother us, since it was... More

We loved our stay at Hilltop Cabins! Moose Cabin was spotless, very well done and fully stocked with everything we needed. The bed was comfy and the linens were great. Loved having a fireplace (gas) and outdoor balcony porch with great lake view. We didn't eat there, but breakfast looked great. Owner was accommodating and helpful with tips and things... More

Two of us stayed in the room named "The Possum." After reading the reviews 1/2 good; 1/2 bad we figured it was worth a shot. Before arriving we decided if it was a clean room with a decent bed, we were fine. Turns out, the room was very clean, but the mattress on the bed was as bad as some... More
