We were very happy with this motel. It was clean, cute and cozy. We had a little car trouble and our host was most helpful with supplying us with a set of pliers!!! We would stay there again. We were very glad to have found this old-fashioned yet updated motel. It was like the motels where my family used to... More

Dave and Don (hosts) are very accommodating and they keep the grounds and rooms very tidy. This motel is close walking distance to downtown Grand Marias and the best bang for your buck in town. You will enjoy the flowers and care they put into the grounds and rooms

My wife's comment pretty much sums it up - "the best cabin/motel we've ever stayed in". Clean, well maintained (inside and out). Walking distance to shops, restaurants, and lake walks. Just off main road but you would never know it; it was so quiet. We appreciated the added touch of "where would the moose ___________" guide to eating and activities... More

The Mangy Moose was everything we had hoped it would be. Cute, clean, comfortable and close to everything. The owners are friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the area. The price can't be beat. A great stay!

Stayed here for a week while attending a class at the nearby Art Colony. Close to everything (I was able to walk everywhere), and very comfortable. All furnishings and bathroom fixtures appear to be much newer than the structure itself. All windows open to let the fresh air in. Super nice staff who left me alone. Recommended.

Nice, quiet, good location. Spent the night here on the way to Canada. Rooms are small, but comfortable. We would stay here again if our travel plans ever take us near " the moose". The owners were very nice. Dave & Theresa Blanks Alvin, Tx

The Mangy Moose is clean, neat and well kept. It is also very reasonably priced. One of the proprietors checked us in and made sure we had everything we needed. The only thing keeping it from 5 stars is the inevitable traffic noise from nearby Highway 61. There's no way to avoid it, and the noise level isn't bad (it... More

A friend and I stayed at the Mangy Moose in mid August for 2 nights. We were unsure of what to expect as we had never been there before and were thrilled with our experience. Dave and Don were wonderful and gave fantastic restaurant recommendations, the room was beautiful, quaint, and clean. The bed was very comfortable and provided some... More

Its a nice quaint little motel. There is no laundry facility which would have been helpful. We were also surprised there was no air conditioning but it was comfortable enough as it was cool outside. Our room had no tub in it but the couple we were traveling with had a tub so if you have children you might want... More

Very nice affordable motel, very clean and comfortable. Love the beautiful flowers all around the premises. The owners were friendly and welcoming and answered our many questions. We enjoyed our stay - will definitely stay at the Mangy Moose again.
