I have now stayed at the Mangy Moose on several occasions prior to catching the boat to Isle Royale National Park. The Moose isn't fancy but it is clean, the location is convenient and the value is good. Just as I portly, the owners are friendly, helpful and accommodating. I highly recommend the Mangy Moose.

Mangy Moose is a great place to stay while enjoying Grand Marais. The owners work hard to make your time there enjoyable. Grand Marais has so much to offer, wonderful places to eat and of course a scenic view of Lake Superior. What more could you ask for!!!

Mom and I stayed in room #3 for two nights while in Grand Marais. The room was clean and tidy. The motel is in a great location for walking anywhere in town. As we were leaving, Don was planting flowers, which you can check out on their video. Both Dave and Don, the owners, were very accommodating and friendly. I... More

I loved staying at the Mangy Moose. Don and Dave are very nice and interesting to talk to. I would recommend The Mangy Moose to all my friends and family. A nice note was left for me since I left before 6:00 A.M.

The staff greeted us and were very friendly. The room was clean; décor was nice; great attention to detail in all respects. A motel that seemed more like a hotel. Good value for the geographical location. Would stay there again if I were in the area. Thanks Dave & Don.

Our third time here and as usual, clean and cozy. They do a great job and always make an effort to welcome their guests. The rooms are not fancy but always spotless and with all you need for a comfortable stay. For our needs, the MM works well at a low price. The beds are fine, the shower is hot... More

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.
