Really enjoyed our night here, it was a very large comfortable room with a lovely view of Lake Superior. The bed was very comfortable and the continental breakfast was adequate. The lady at the front desk advised us on a lovely place to have our supper (which turned our great). We will certainly stay here again.

In Grand Marais with my 10 year old daughter - Aspen Lodge was just great. The staff was so nice, very accommodating. In our two night stay we saw the same staff, which is also nice. The woman at the front desk was especially friendly. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Common areas and pool area were spotless. We... More

I stayed at Aspen Lodge in late January 2015 for the first time - I had previously stayed at Aspen Inn (Super8) many many times over the course of 20 years. My first impression of Aspen Lodge was the wonderful lobby/breakfast space - very comfortable chairs and TV - windows galore. Second impression was the wonderfully friendly desk clerk/reservationist Shawn.... More

We booked the Aspen Lodge (not to be confused with the Aspen Inn on the other side of town) for a weekend trip to Grand Marais. We were looking for a fairly nice place for a little get-away. I had to make a quick change after booking online for the date but when I called I was met with a... More

I will not stay here again. The floors had stains, the towels were dirty and smelled funny, the beds were hard as a rock, and everything was WAY, WAY, WAY outdated! Excellent location, but just overall a dump.

Not my first choice for a hotel in Grand Marais, but we had a family of 6 to accommodate on short notice. It was an appropriate place to stay with a close proximity to town for quick excursions into town. Seemingly quiet area. We were able to grab a quick bite before going out to start our day hiking, biking,... More

We arrived in Grand Marais finding everything filled and decided on the Aspen which looks like a fairly nice place. The staff was helpful and courteous and we were given a room on the third floor with windows overlooking Lake Superior. The room was fairly large and relatively clean EXCEPT for the carpet which was in need of a good... More

I had heard that the hotel employees were not too nice and accommodating. However, Stacy at the front desk was delightful! Although I did speak with some guests who were not as pleased with some other employees, like the donut Nazi employee, who was monitoring how many donuts each guest could have in the morning. I heard this employee also... More
