We stayed for two nights. The owner, Scott, was extremely friendly. He fired up his 18 for wide theater screen for us to play xBox. And went out of his way to make sure we had everything we need. Thanks so much, Scott. Easy access to our parked car and/or snowmobile was a nice bonus.

Thank you so much Ryan for taking the time to review our Resort. You guys were fantastic guests and much better Halo players then you professed to be. Thank you again and we look forward too seeing you next time. V/R Scott. More

We have spent a couple of weekends in the Eagle River area and have stayed at this popular family run motel at the north end of Eagle River. It seems to be an excellent location for snowmobilers and is conveniently located on Highway 45. The rooms are reasonably well decorated, and spacious, and some have lake views. There are cathedral... More

Thank you Martin for you review. We enjoyed hosting you. We are continually upgrading but currently only 30% of the rooms have 32 inch LED TV's. Hopefully we will be fully upgraded by your next stay. Thanks again for taking the time to write a review. V/R Scott More

I just completed a stay at the motel during the pond hockey event. Our group loved the comfort of the accommodations (especially the hot showers) we experienced during our stay. The motel has the feel of a warm family atmosphere. I've been here before and will without a doubt be back.

Thank you AJ for taking the time to review our resort. Last year we spent $12,000 buying a new commercial hot water heater and we have it set on the hottest temperature allowed. Folks that are recreating in the Northwoods need a long hot shower too thaw out during the cold winter months. Pond Hockey was a crazy week for... More

At first, I was very charmed by the rustic decor of the lodge. The room was heated prior to our arrival and the bedroom was cozy with plenty of outlets and northwoods decor. However, wi-fi was only included in the lobby and at best, the service was spotty. In addition, the water in the shower never heated up past a... More

First of all I will have to say I only stayed at this place because mostly everywhere else was booked for a major hockey tournament. We arrived and thought the rooms were spacious and overall better than we expected for the price. However, the 2nd night we stayed as we were getting ready for bed we got a knock on... More

Stayed here with my family last summer. Rooms were spacious and there was a picnic area on the deck with a grill available for use by guests. We had a good time making our own food and sharing time with family members. There was not much of a beach but the docks worked well for fishing. Rooms were basic, spacious... More

Love the Hiawatha Lodge Inn! Never stayed anywhere else that made us feel so welcome and comfortable. It's become a tradition for my son and I, (and dog), to stay for a long weekend each year. We recently made reservations 7 months out to ensure the tradition continues. Rooms are clean and comfortable while retaining the 'Up North' feel. Scott... More

We were unable to stay with our dog at another local hotel so called here and they were able to accommodate us. Rooms were huge and very well cleaned. Owners so friendly and remembered our names welcoming us each morning. Felt like we were in a Christmas Hallmark movie.

Hiawatha Lodge Inn feels more like visiting family or a B&B than your standard lodge. Scott & Keilah are super friendly and hospitable. They were very accommodating to both our two year old son and dog, greeting them equally as guests along with my husband and I. Scott set-up the movie Frozen on the giant screen in the basement for... More
