What a terrific little place and a fantastic location! Like many users, our room was neat, clean and the Don and Dave are excellent hosts. It's like you're a guest in there home! No plans for the day? Just ask what to do for the day, and they will be happy to suggest a few things rain or shine! We... More

We stayed at the Mangy Moose for one night, and my wife and I were very satisfied. Though smaller than your average "big box" hotel room, our room was impeccably clean and comfortable, and included a microwave and small refrigerator (we stayed in room #6). The staff we encountered was very friendly, and we enjoyed a quiet night. Overall, a... More

My boyfriend and I are here for the night. He just said its "so cozy," and that he felt like he was at home in his own bedroom. Cute, cozy, convenient, and very friendly people here!! Next time we stay, we will be bringing our dogs! Everything was so close we just walked everywhere we went.👍👍 2 thumbs up.

I stayed one night at the Mangy Moose, in Grand Marais, but definitely wish I could have stayed longer. The room I had was very cute, cozy, and quiet! And I emphasize QUIET. Comfortable beds and lots of towels in the darling bathroom. There was a kitchen for extra $ but I didn't pay for that and it's behind a... More

What a quaint, charming motel in the Lake Superior town of Grand Marais, Minnesota. We spent two nights here and were extremely pleased with room, comfortable bed and furnishings and the warm hospitality the owners gave us (and our miniature dachshund). If we are ever traveling in this area again, we'll definitely stay at the Mangy Moose Motel.

Stayed one night and wished we were staying more. The room was so clean. We paid the same for a less than attractive, dumpy room in Duluth and there was no comparison. The Mangy Moose was easy to find, close to everything and the bed (while slightly odd was very comfortable). The mattress rested on a platform and slid around... More

Listen up, its the canine cuties checking in after checking out the Mangy Moose motel in grand Marais. First of all when reservations were made, the folks asked for a pet friendly room. When we entered the room the first thing the folks noticed was a note on the bed with a dog biscuit. How cool is that? The note... More

Stayed here again in September 2013 on our way north. Once again the room was spotlessly clean. I also like the fact that you can park right in front of your room. The Motel is close to town and you can walk to restaurants. I would stay here again.
