The Mangy Moose is clean, neat and well kept. It is also very reasonably priced. One of the proprietors checked us in and made sure we had everything we needed. The only thing keeping it from 5 stars is the inevitable traffic noise from nearby Highway 61. There's no way to avoid it, and the noise level isn't bad (it... More

A friend and I stayed at the Mangy Moose in mid August for 2 nights. We were unsure of what to expect as we had never been there before and were thrilled with our experience. Dave and Don were wonderful and gave fantastic restaurant recommendations, the room was beautiful, quaint, and clean. The bed was very comfortable and provided some... More

Its a nice quaint little motel. There is no laundry facility which would have been helpful. We were also surprised there was no air conditioning but it was comfortable enough as it was cool outside. Our room had no tub in it but the couple we were traveling with had a tub so if you have children you might want... More

Very nice affordable motel, very clean and comfortable. Love the beautiful flowers all around the premises. The owners were friendly and welcoming and answered our many questions. We enjoyed our stay - will definitely stay at the Mangy Moose again.

Unfortunately, my family and I were only passing through the lovely town of Grand Marais, but Mangy Moose was a wonderful addition to our stay. Comfortable, clean and nicely located and just a short walk from downtown.

Though we have been to the North Shore many times, my husband and I had been looking for an affordable place to stay in Grand Marais that allowed dogs, and the Mangy Moose was just what we were looking for! Not only was the price right, the owners are extremely nice, they provided doggie treats and a sheet for our... More

At the end of a busy day sightseeing, picking blueberries, kayaking, hiking or any of the endless recreational activities you can enjoy in the Grand Marais area, the Mangy Moose is a great place to rest and unwind. There's a reason the sign says "no vacancy" daily (in summer, at least). Comfort at a great price, and two of the... More

We initially reserved 2 nights at the Mangy and were delighted when they had a cancellation allowing us 2 more nights. What a treat to be greeted by the wonderfully accommodating owners and to stay in one of the cleanest rooms we have encountered in our travels. The rooms are quaintly adorable. The name alone should tell indicate that the... More

This was our first visit to Grand Marais and the Mangy Moose was recommended by a friend that had been there earlier this summer. I was very happy that we took her advice to stay there. We originally booked for a 2 night stay and when we decided to add on another night they were very accommodating and gave us... More

Well, we had to suffer through another 3 days at the Mangy, with the cleanest room and bathroom ever, the fancy new parking lot, the new custom monogramed (MMM) picnic table and the friendliest host you will ever find. But, somehow we sucked it up and made it through no worse for the wear. If you don't like affordable, clean... More
