We recently stayed in the newly remodeled 2 room suite at great northern on a snowmobile trip. The room had plenty of space for all our gear, etc and it was very comfortable. The bed was okay, could use an upgraded mattress for sure. The living room is nice and there is a seperate bathroom, closet/dressing room and jacuzzi tub... More

We have been here before. Nothing fancy but big old fashioned rooms fairly comfortable. We were looking forward to coming again. Unfortunately, we couldn't find a dog sitter so we brought our big dog. The staff was very accommodating and changed our room to the pet section. We totally understand. However, the pet section is located near the bar restaurant... More

Great place. Kitchen is open on Monday night if you're snowmobiling and need a stop. Jules the bartender is a friendly and competent host. Bacon Bleu burger was cooked perfectly and the prices are decent.

Loved the Great Northerner. My cousin got married in the back and the staff was awesome and making the stay personal. Bar was a lot of fun and breakfast did the trick. Would recommend 2nd floor for vehicle noise.

We had to stay here due to sell outs further north but were not disappointed. The rooms were big and clean. The hotel has a beautiful sitting area with Wi fi. Our room was not updated but it appears that they are in the process of doing so. The hotel is right on the ATV/Snowmobile Trail. The breakfast was adequate.

We stayed one night on our way thru Wisconsin and were very pleasantly surprised. The owners seem to be renovating and remodeling the motel complex one room at a time and our room was very large and clean. The view of the small lake on the property was very pleasant. The motel grounds were immaculate. We wish them all the... More

Good price, very large, nice room. I would stay here again. The area has lots to see and do. This facility has everything needed for large or small groups. The staff was friendly and professional. We enjoyed our stay and have nothing bad to say about this place. I recommend it.

We away stay here when we snowmobiling in the area. Clean rooms and the new owners seem to be trying to remodel as fast as they can afford to. The food choices are a bit limited but OK. I would suggest staying here if your in the area.

Rolled into town late on Wednesday night 11:30pm, still an hour to travel for work in the am. Thought I had a reservation down the steet at the Cranberry, but it was made for a different night, my error. The Great Northern got me in right away. The front desk staff was courteous, I saw no other guests. Nothing fancy,... More
