We stayed in Cape Superior Inn, September 2012 end. The Motel is quiet and clean. The room we stayed in had a working kitchen, TV, Sofa and 2 bedrooms. The toilet was functional and clean. The best part of the motel is the view, its awesome. There is a restaurant next door, but we did not eat there.

Thanks for posting! While we may not have all the amenities of the chain motels, but we do have the "million-dollar" view at a reasonable price. Thanks for staying with us! Hope to see you again in the future. More

The Cape Superior Inn reminded us of a European Hotel. The room was small as was the bathroom and shower (shower head too low for a taller person). Our room was decorated very nicely, not the standard hotel decorations. The room was clean and comfortable. Check in was friendly and efficient and our request for extra pillows was handled courteously.... More

I would recommend this motel to anyone looking for a quiet clean place to stay. The view of Lake Superior was awesome. The manager was a great guy. The room was very clean. We sat outside our room on two different nights and watched the ships come into the harbor. The resturant next door had wonderful food. The bottle shop... More

Just a wonderful inn. The view of Lake Superior from the second story deck is beautiful, the manager is friendly and helpful, the room is cozy and homey with extra touches that shows the inn is cared for, nicest liquor store I've ever been in, and a great bar/restaurant next door. All the staff made you feel like you were... More

Came up with the family from the twin cities. The view from your room of Lake Superior is incredible. There is a really nice liquor store attached to the motel. And a great bar and restaurant next door. Room was clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful.

A little leary at first sight but very impressed with the hospitality of this Inn. Great view of lake superior from my window. Super clean room and very reasonably priced. Homey feel to the whole place. After 400 miles of travel it was so nice to be greeted with such kindness and attentiveness. if you travel along the lake shore... More

Thank you so much for your review! The motel could use a bit of sprucing up on the outside, but I'm glad you decided to stop in and give us a chance. More

this place is a real dump plane and simple. it looks like they built the place with the cheapest material that they could swindle from a scrap yard. the furniture looks like it was picked up off the side of the road in the bad part of town. everything obvious went to the lowest bidder if you get my drift.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Cape Superior Inn and were suprised by its recent updates, great customer service, and the new liquor store on site! The restaurant next door is under new ownership and has fabulous food. We chose the Cape Superior Inn because we wanted to get away from the busy city-life of Canal Park, and... More

Myself and several friends stopped and stayed at this place. The Restaraunt next to this place is the old castle, but is no longer owned by the people who own the Cape Superior Inn. First, there is no parking lines in the parking lot of the inn, and as small as the driveway to the place is, parking our motorcycles... More
