This was the second time I've stayed here with a friend while taking a class at the North House Folk School. The Mangy Moose has several rooms with two separate bedroom areas (no doors tho) - nice because you get a little privacy but it's not as expensive as two rooms. This motel is so clean that I'm comfortable walking... More

Very clean and comfortable room. Everything we needed at a great price. Within walking distance of downtown and some great restaurants and not a far drive to some of our favorite spots on the North Shore. Tried to stay here several times and it was always booked. Finally able to try the Moose and we will definitely be back. From... More

Love this place; very clean, neat & the guys are so friendly. They will help you with whatever you need; eating places, seeing sites, take time to talk & not just collect $$ & push you out. They have done a great job with this motel & we have stayed there many times & certainly will go back each yr.... More

Do not overlook this little gem! My boyfriend and I stayed here for our anniversary trip and I couldn't have been more pleased. The owners, Dave and Don were sweet as pie and could not have been more helpful or accommodating. The room was quaint and clean and so quiet. We have stayed in Grand Marais many times but this...

The room was small, but very clean, comfortable, and had a pleasant warm decor. Comfortable bed. Convenient location and only a block off the lake. Perfect for a stay where you don't plan to spend much time in your room.

This is a cozy and clean place in the Northwoods décor...It has all the amenities needed and is walking distance to many of the highlights of Grand Marais. Check-in was smooth and questions answered with knowledge and help. I would definitely stay here again and the only reasons not five star is when I turned lights off...dogs behind started barking...not... More

Our recent stay at the Mangy Moose could not have been better. The owner was so nice and extremely helpful. The room was very clean and not only had the basics, but extras. The refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker was especially nice. There were plenty of towels and even a blow dryer in the bathroom. We slept with the windows... More

We have stayed with our dog at the Mangy Moose twice. Both times we found it to be very nice and certainly accommodating to us and our dog. We will no doubt be staying there again. Grand Marais is a very fun place to visit. Great hiking and wonderful Minnesota state parks nearby. We go up every year and will... More

If a comfortable night's rest amid pleasant surroundings is your goal, you can't miss by staying at the Mangy Moose. It's convenient location permits walking to several restaurants, interesting sights and the harbor area itself. This property has been updated in recent years, but it is maintained so well and cleaned so thoroughly you feel like the room is brand... More

We had to cancel our trip, but by the wat they handled our request, there is no question we will stay there when we can get away. Very accommodating people and treated us as though we were family. Has to be a great place to stay!
