We've stayed at the Moose before and this won't be the last time. Rooms are immaculate, beds are the best, and Dave couldn't be more hospitable. The only problem with giving such a great review is that it may be that much more difficult to find an open date to stay in the future. Thanks, Dave, for another great stay... More

Nice old fashioned motel with a cabin feeling, and updated bathrooms. Immaculate! Will definitely stay here again. Within walking distance to town. Very cute! There was also an area outside with picnic table and a couple of chairs to relax in.

My husband and I stayed three nights at the Mangy Moose while visiting the area. The motel is within walking distance of many restaurants and shops. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Upon check in I asked for recommendations on dining and was given great suggestions. We would definitely stay here again.

If everyone knows this is a nice, clean, friendly motel then everyone will go there and make it harder for me to book it. Been coming to Grand Marais for 15+ years and have stayed in most places in town. 1st time to the Mangy Moose and it will now be my 1st choice when booking a room.

Have stayed at the Mangy Moose Motel several times, have always been very satisfied. They have ten rooms, all very clean and the grounds well maintained. We have been on motorcycles and they leave towels out for cleaning the bikes. Its a easy walk to the Angry Trout or Crooked Spoon restaurants we like for dinner.

Very clean room! Simple but everything we needed for a comfortable stay before heading into the BWCA wilderness. The owners were so helpful in recommending food and entertainment options within walking distance. We took advantage of the games they had to borrow!

Loved the mangy moose. Check In was a breeze. Our room was so comfortable. Very quiet and spotless. The motel is located very close to the waterfront so we walked for dinner and enjoyed the lovely views of Lake Superior. All in all a great stay and can't wait to return!!

This is a newly updated place to stay - clean, cute and pet friendly. There is a frig, microwave, free WiFi and within walking distance to all places within Grand Marais. We will definitely stay with you again!

This was my second stay at the Mangy Moose. It's so delightful that I didn't mind staying inside and reading on a very rainy day. I've recommended Mangy Moose to all my friends and hope that I have a chance to stay again next year during the Wooden Boat Festival. It's a good spot for women traveling alone--within walking distance... More
