We wanted a place to stay for a weekend in February without it costing an arm and a leg. We were very happy with this motel. It had a kitchenette and a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was newly remodeled. Everything was clean and very comfortable. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. It's not fancy but it's still... More

I came up to Grand Marais to take a class at the North House Folk School and I found the Gunflint Motel to be a little home away from home. The rooms are not your average hotel room, they are homey and feel more like having your own apartment! My room had it's own separate bedroom, and living room with... More

We have stayed here a couple of times now and have enjoyed the room and the owner's helpful and friendly attitude. We have booked the efficiency unit on the end each time as this gives the best view of the lake and offers good space and amenities for the price. We will definitely stay again here when we are in...

Anyway, I went in with the expectation that we were lucky to get any room at all, and was pleasantly surprised that the beds were good, the shower strong,... More

We loved it. The place had everything we needed; coffee pot, frig. toaster. The place was very clean and spacious. It is a quick walk down hill to lake for dinner at the Angry Trout and into town for dinner and we were able to sit on the curb in front of the motel and enjoy the storm roll in... More

If you want a basic, affordable place to stay while you are up along the north shore, this is your place. It is a block or two off the main road, and an easy walk into the downtown area, although walking back up the hill on your way back is a little work. The room we had (#5) was plenty... More
