My family, friends, and I have stayed at the Munger Inn a number of times. It is reasonably priced, offers unique extra's and is owned by a family with a long history of dedication to the environment and bicycling. Willard Sr. was a long time Minnesota State Legislator and the driving force behind the creation of the Munger Trail: a... More

For your money, location and accommodations, Willard Munger Inn is your best bet. Rooms are modern, clean and well maintained. The price is right, too. Continental breakfast includes waffles and french toast. Wifi and cable tv and free newspaper everyday. Across from Lake Superio zoo with complimentary tickets, across from Spirit Mountain Skiing, and great hiking on the Munger Trails.... More

I stayed here while skiing at spirit mountain. Quite a pleasant place with the old fashion northwood charm very much reminding me of staying along the north shore in some of the older small resorts years ago. The staff had the room I stayed at extremely clean, much appreciated as I have been staying at some fairly expensive places lately... More

My wife and I have been staying at the Willard Munger Inn whenever we visit the North Shore over the last 30 years or so. We've experienced the evolution of the Inn from a basic economical place to stay with minimal amenities to a cabin themed motel that promotes use of the nearby Willard Munger Trail, Spirit Mountain skiing and...

This place doesnt look like anything special from the outside, but when checking in the workers were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are remodeled in a cabin like style and are very clean. Comfortable beds, flat screen tv, kitchenettes and some rooms have a deck which is nice if you are staying around your room. You may not be... More

We stayed here one night on the way to the boundary waters and one night on the way back and it was a wonderful place. Both rooms were remodeled and very nice. We were able to ride the free bikes on the trails and saw several deer and birds. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The free breakfast... More

We love this place, especially with all the updates to the rooms and grounds. Very comfortable and peaceful destination with wonderful trails and the St. Louis river nearby. The fresh fruit with the continental breakfast was a nice touch.

We stayed here in October of 2011, and really enjoyed biking with the use of the free rental bikes, and walking down by the bay. We also took advantage of the free zoo passes. The cool autumn evening was spent by the fire pit. It was a comfortable place to stay, and we just booked it again for a visit... More

I've stayed here twice. It is located in an older, industrial part of town and may look like the Bates Hotel from the outside, but the rooms are quite nice, although not spectacular. What sets this motel apart is its location near a ski area for winters and on a great paved bike trail with FREE bicycles to use to... More

First off I admire Willard Munger and what he did for Minnesota. That's the only reason I even looked at this place. What I experienced can only be described as sad. Yes, there is a great "shrine" to Willard in the lobby with some fascinating photos and news articles depicting political greats from years gone by. Yes, the waffle breakfast... More
