As others have stated this is like a trip back 50 years to when travelers simply wanted an inexpensive place to sleep and clean up. If you are a fan of retro travel you will like the Dunes' simple, clean, quiet, cheap rooms, which have a few miles on them. If you expect a lot of modern amenities and whine... More

If you are determined to stay in Grand Marais, and can't meet the Voyageur Inn minimum night requirement, you don't have many options. As others have stated, the owners are nice and helpful, the room rate is inexpensive, and the location is good for walking into town to the beach or restaurants/bars. However, I wish I had picked another town,... More

My husband and I stayed here when our backpacking trip through Pictured Rocks got cut short due to severe thunderstorms. We were happy with the low price ($55 for one queen), clean room, and close proximity to Lake Superior Brewing Company (5 minute walk). The owners were very nice and super friendly. The building is old, and the rooms are... More

Born and raised in Michigan I’ve been all over the state and now I tour on my motorcycle, then in 2008 I rediscovered Grand Marais, MI which I now call my second home and the best place on Earth! I like the Dunes because the owners are very friendly and it is walking distance to downtown. Now it is a... More

A fellow TA member suggested this motel in Grand Marais. We stayed one night, a Friday night. We arrived late, and everything was locked tight in the office. No light on. The sign was not on. I think we told them we'd be coming in late. But the owner saw our car headlights and came and unlocked the door. We... More
