Upon entering our room we smelled something awful like bad body odor. I called the front desk and they immediately brought room spray. It didn't help. For what we paid I personally thought it was to much for a stinky room. On a positive note our room was clean, quiet and we enjoyed our first floor patio.

When staying here on business I'm never let down in anyway. The staff is always spot on with their friendly customer service. I've stayed here there times in the last three years and love the view and the patio with incredible view. I love staying in the suite and have the larger corner unit. The whirlpool is a great way...

We checked in and our room smelled like body odor. I called down to the front desk and let them know. Before I could ask for a new room they said they would bring air freshener up. The young man from the front desk came right up and when he came in the room he agreed it smelled "funky." I... More

Great location, close to many restaurants and shops. Lovely views right out our hotel room window of Lake Superior. Outdoor seating lakeside and just steps from the Lakewalk. Great free breakfast with hot and cold food options. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here with a girlfriend visiting from Canada. The rooms are a nice size, bathrooms are small, but the room was spotless. We had a room facing the lake on the first floor and took advantage of sitting out on the patio with a drink for a couple of hours. The boardwalk is right behind the hotel. Great location for...

We stayed here for just a single night when visiting UMD. The hotel is very nicely decorated - North shore meets arts and crafts. We had a double room overlooking the lake. It was clean, quiet and comfortable. What a view! The sunrise over Lake Superior was awesome and we could watch ships enter the harbor. The outdoor patio (lakeside)... More

We stayed one night for work. The lodge was not cheap but they did offer a decent corporate discount. The lodge itself was old. Their breakfast was pretty good with 2 or 3 hot items. I did use their waffle maker. In the evenings they offered free snacks along with a cash bar. The building itself definitely shows its age.... More

Thank you for your comments. The Lodge was build in 2007. We try to continuously add and renovate. Last summer we expanded our patio and added a fire pit. This spring we just refurbished our public area furniture and decor. We look forward to your return visit. More

I had a lake side room with a great view of Lake Superior. Two very comfortable queen size beds. Spacious bathroom with all the standard amenities refrigerator, great air conditioning and heating. The room was also well appointed and quiet. The lake walk is right outside your door. Very Relaxing
