Clean rooms, friendly staff and great rates!! What more could you ask for.Located downtown so walking to great shops and dining is a huge plus. This is an old motel that has been lovingly brought back to life. Rooms are small but for the price totally worth it. If your looking for the Ritz go back to the city. If... More

Sure...on our trek around the beautiful North Woods, we saw moose, deer, wolves, waterfowl, hawks, and myriad chipmunks -- not to mention spectacular scenery highlighted by red, gold, and orange leaves, aplenty. However, at the close of a spectacular day, it always was wonderful to come home to the comfort and solitude of the Mangy Moose, enjoy a glass of... More

The room was very clean, beautiful grounds with flowers. Excellent staff, super helpful and accomidating. This motel barely feels like a motel and has the best rates around. Right in the middle of Grand Marais so it is very cliose to everything.

Read about the Mangy Moose on Tripadvisor, we were lucky to get a cancelled reservation for two nights. It is a cute, quite, and very clean. It is a quick walk in to town. We would book a room on our next visit to Grand Marais.

Best budget friendly place to stay in Grand Marais! Walking distance to food and shopping, marina, everything. The building is old but tidy and well maintained. The flowers, outdoors table and chairs are fabulous homey touches. Dave and Don (hosts) are truly hosts and not just motel owners. I highly reconmend.

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!
