Called after 6pm on a Friday night asking if a room was available for 2 adults and 2 dogs, he said yes. Asked us what time we would arrive and when I stated we were 5 hours away, he left the key in our room and left the door unlocked for us. Meet the man in the morning and yes... More

My friend and I were in the area hiking, were planning to camp, but got rained out. Stopped in to ask about getting a room, the old guy was rude. The place looked like it could be questionable, so I asked to see a room, and he lost it! Hollered at me and said if I wanted to see a... More

Just called to inquire about room availability. I was told by the grumpy broken English speaking man on the other end that the question i was asking was "dumb question." After three minutes of trying to get an answer to my question he informed me of a two night minimum and hung up on me. If you stay here, you... More

A great, tidy and neat hotel. Prices great. Condition and cleanliness excellent. A classic 60's style motor in. Better than most of this type we've encoutered. The only downside, and not related to the motel - there are not many grocery/dining establishments in the near area.

Owner is literally a psychopath. Out of Bates Motel. Tried to book a room and he lost it after I asked him if he was ready to take my details. Started swearing and threatening us on the phone. Amazed this place is still in business. STAY AWAY FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY!!!

Most motels in the surroundings were fully booked due to several parallel events at the weekend and then we found this place. We paid 85USD + tax for two adults and three small dogs which was not the cheapest motel we found but it was still acceptable. The room was spacious and clean, the shower worked well, we had a...

Had a wonderful nights sleep at the Mariner Motel. The proprietor was direct and didn't waste any time, but he was pleasant overall. The price was $65 and change for 2 beds and 2 adults. If I paid cash it would have been cheaper. We slept well, the room was huge, and overall we were very happy with our stay... More

Just booked our room for our 4th stay here. It is a great location for 4-wheeling, enjoying the North shore, taking part in the Beaver Bay / Silver Bay Day Events and spending time with our families and friends. There is a group of us that stay here every year at least once and always have a great time. The... More

Many hotels in north shore require two-day reservation (Fri+Sat), and this one doesn't. I booked this motel one day before my trip in early October. The service guy has a heavy accent and loud voice when he spoke, but the service is ok. I got 10~15% discount with AAA membership with ~$60/night for one-bed, which is quite economic at that... More

This is a classic up-north motel. It's a great value. The rooms are spacious, clean and very well cared for. It has a north woods feel with solid pine paneling. The beds are very comfortable, which is my primary concern when staying at a motel. It is true that the "old man" can be surly, but I also found him... More
