This was our first time to stay at Hiawatha. We loved it. We were on motorcycles and the first thing Scott did was offer to put our bikes in his garage in case of rain! We knew we liked it already! The rooms were larger than a normal hotel room and very clean. The beds were comfortable and the view... More

My family and I stayed here for the 2nd time. The prices are great and the rooms are clean and large. The hosts (Scott and Keilah) are so nice and make you feel at home. Our daughter loved playing with their daughter in the lobby and on the nice jungle gym. All the staff are nice and the boat docks... More

We spent one night here in the huge rooms. This isn't a Marriott, but everything works, the setting is beautiful, the owners are wonderfully friendly, and the price can't be beat. The owner found us a place to eat that would meet our picky diet needs, gave us the lay of the land, and made us feel completely at home.... More

This was our second stay at the Hiawatha, the first being 4 years ago with different owners. Can't beat the clean rooms with both indoor and outdoor entrances( great for snowmobling-park your sled right outside your door!) and the wonderful hospitality, not to mention the reasonable price. We had a group of 8 and all enjoyed socializing in the rec... More

We stayed at the Hiawatha Lodge the weekend after Christmas and had a wonderful experience. The room was large, warm, and very comfortable. There was space to throw all of our gear in the room and still be able to move around. Tea and coffee helped warm us up after time on the trails. The town of Eagle River is... More

The Hiawatha is ok, the owner is amazing. The view of the lake was amazing. The room was very clean, loved that we could open the window. And the rooms don't have the usual heating and cooling unit, so much quieter. The mattress are way to soft. We were alittle surprised to wake up to dogs barking... And we were... More

We are sorry we did not meet your expectations. We are continuously upgrading our hotel. Several rooms do have 32 LED TV's and we hope to have all of the older TV's replaced in the coming year. We are pet friendly and we address all noise complaints immediately when informed. We agree it is the simple things that matter and... More

This was my husband and I's first time visiting Eagle River for Cranberry Fest. We went with 3 other couples who have stayed at the Hiawatha before. It was a great place. The rooms were clean and large. The shampoos and the soap in the room was organic and natural which is important to me. The lobby was a great... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in mid-July after bringing our son up to summer camp. This roadside motor inn is situated on a lake and offers clean, spacious rooms with comfortable beds that provide good support. The bathroom was clean, but the the sink drained very slowly. The shower strength was good, but not spectacular. The... More

The young couple that owns the Hiawatha (as of a couple of years ago) was determined to make us feel at home, and they succeeded beyond our wildest dreams! When we checked in they asked us our names and then called us by name during the 4 nights and 5 days we were there. Very hospitable. The next day we... More
