Room was very clean and service was excellent. No problems with checking in or out. I would recommend to anyone staying in the North Shore area. the location is very close to all that is needed but yet it was quiet.

nice, very clean "motel" room. Tiny bathroom, toilet behind the door so beware if you get up during the night. Could use some updating. Did hear traffic noise from the road. Accommodating for late arrival, had light on for us in the room. Otherwise, no complaints.

We stayed for 2 nights. Clean and quiet. The front desk was very helpful with our requests. Well worth the rate. You can walk anywhere in town in less than 20 mins. The motel has wifi and a high standard of cleanliness.

Everything we needed. Right off the highway, easy to find. Sufficient amenities, clean, comfortable, walking distance to everything, nice people. Will stay there again for sure next time we're in Grand Marais, which is a lovely North Shore town.

We just returned from a three night stay at the Moose. This small motel is not a chain and that is what first attracted us. We booked room 2 which had air conditioning and a king size bed. It is a newer room based on the reviews I read. The mattress was super comfy. The room had lovely artwork and... More

We recently stayed at the Mangy Moose and enjoyed it. Clean, comfortable room and courteous, accommodating staff. We were in a cabin prior to our stay so the road noise and the nearness of the other guests was a bit of an adjustment but no big deal.

Very clean and cozy place, we will for sure be staying again! Only problem was getting heat adjusted, wall mount was electronic but not working properly so it got way too hot. Bit noisy outside at times as well, but overall nice and peaceful.

We rented two rooms for 4 adults and 3 kids. Both rooms were so clean, cute, and unique. In town but very quiet. Would book again with Mangy Moose. If you like small, personable motels, this is your place! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

The Mangy Moose was the perfect retreat for a couple of gals looking for rest and relaxation! Staff were very friendly and accomodating. Close to everything Grand Marais has to offer. Would love to go back soon !

This property is perfectly positioned in GM for easy access. It is amazingly clean, wonderfully kitschy and comfy as can be. Room 8 was for two people and while compact, it had everything we needed for a pleasant overnight stay. It isn't hard to see why this is rated #1 in GM - it has it all.
