Reserved room #1. Very nice wheelchair accessible bathroom. Unfortunately when we arrived the bed in the room was too tall for someone who needs to transfer from a wheelchair to the bed. The owners Dave and Don went out of their way to accommodate us for the night and helped us find a room at another hotel that would work... More

This was the second time we have stayed at the Moose. We brought our friends with and we rented two separate rooms. The beds are very comfortable, there is a nice size coffee pot in room 3. There is a limited view of Lake Superior, but it is nice. When it got cloudy, we lost some internet on our phone,... More

it was a nice, cozy room. Even though most of the other rooms were full, it was very quiet. It was perfect for our two night stay! Staff and owners were super friendly and our room was very well kept and clean. Very satisfied!

The Mangy Moose is conveniently located in town with an easy walk to the water, restaurants and shops. The staff is friendly and happy to help out with your needs. The rooms are clean and cozy. We'll certainly be back!

I always try to stay here when Grand Marais. Rooms are very small ( especially #9) but cozy and clean. Don and Dave are genial hosts and clearly love this property. It's close tobyhe center of town so you can walk to all significant stops.

Newly renovated and updated to provide comfort and location at a reasonable price. I loved staying at the Mangy Moose in Grand Marais. It was very clean and comfortable and just outside the main town area, within a few minutes walk if you are so inclined. Don and Dave, the proprietors, were extremely helpful with suggestions on places to eat,... More

We stayed at the Mangy Moose before an early morning boat ride to Isle Royale. When I called the day that we needed a room, the owner was VERY accomodating. I knew we would not be arriving until after 10pm and he offered right away to have the room ready and waiting, key accessable to us, and the light on... More

I can't say enough nice things about the Mangy Moose! Even though I was a little wary about a converted motor court, even after reading all the terrific reviews, we booked this place for 2 nights in September. So glad we did! The owners are very warm, welcoming, & helpful. They have done a complete overhaul of this place &... More

This hotel was just what we needed for the restful night stop on our trip. Clean & comfortable rooms. Close to restaurants & the lake shore. Plenty of parking for our van & trailer. The deck man was very helpful in making a booking error right by setting us up in the motel across the street.
