We had no reservations but got in right away. It was October so we didn't think we had to reserve. I was with my folks, we went to Washburn to visit relatives. The owner was super nice, the room was dated but the beds were very comfortable and was very clean. The only thing I would suggest to the owners... More

My sister and a friend came to visit and stayed for 3 nights at this cute little Inn. Friendly proprietor and quaint theme rooms made for an interesting stay. Rooms were clean and nicely decorated. We will be back as we are planning a winter visit!

We were in the kitchenette units, and they were better than we expected given the reviews. We slept well on the beds that seemed a bit soft but were comfortable. Bedding and bathrooms were clean. We could write our names on the dust behind the nightstand lamp, but other than that the rooms seemed clean. The owner was friendly and... More

The North Coast is an old fashioned strip motel. However, it's been kept in fairly good condition and the rooms are clean. Part of it's charm is the old fixtures, mismatched furniture, and funky old decor. Our room was good value for the price, which is quite reasonable compared to other accommodation in the area. The bed was good enough.... More

We stayed here a few weeks ago and the motel was very clean- you can tell the husband and wife are proud owners. We were allowed to check in early to go about our day. They offered suggestions on places to eat and things to do in the area and even had brochures when we checked in. Our room was... More

We found this motel exceeded our expectations! Everything in the rooms were maintained and very clean. We could tell the owners took a lot of pride in their business and it shows. We would recommend this place to family and friends.

This place is an absolute NIGHTMARE! The people are RUDE and everything about the establishment is disgusting. I have never, in all of my years of traveling throughout the country, encountered such incompetence and overall lack of customer service. I agree 100% with all of the 1 start ratings related to this "Inn" - YUCK!

Great room, clean, great bed. It is showing its age but if you embrace vacationing in the 1950s it is a fun slowdown small town relaxing place....but you still have wifi and cable;) great restaurants and local history museum with an antique store in the same place along with some art displayed. All within walking distance from your room. There... More

Great location and value for visiting the Apostle Islands Ice Caves. 30 minute drive to the parking lot at the Ice Caves using County Highway C. Several restaurants nearby. Clean and comfortable room. Very friendly owners. There is a snowmobile trail right behind the motel but did not hear any sleds after 9:30 p.m. Very quiet, especially for a Saturday.... More
