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

I have stayed at this hotel twice over the last two years and find the facility convenient to town but in need of some TLC. Rooms are good sized and being a guy have not found anything objectionable about their condition although the bed is not particularly comfortable. Adequate is the best I can offer. The second floor rooms have... More

This hotel has potential, but it's very dated & the carpet was filthy in the room we rented. It was fortunate we'd only planned to spend one night. If the owners invested some effort and money, in updating & replacing the filthy carpet & ancient TV sets, this could be a very beautiful place. In the morning when we were... More

This company owns quite a few properties in town. I called to make sure we would have a king room, no one answered the phone and I called 4 times. The rooms are desperately in need of renovation- the carpet was filthy and there was black mold in our shower. Holes in the covers, tube tvs & an alarm clock... More

When we were going to this popular vacation destination the hotels of the GM Hotel company were the only ones that had one-night stays, All other hotels that I checked required two night stays. That should have raised a red flag but I did not pay attention. These folks are not honest. When they slip an invoice under you door... More

The staff that works there is very friendly. We stayed on the second floor and were hoping to see the lake from our room but all we saw was trees. But that was ok. The hotel is very clean and is an old hotel. The mattresses need to be thrown out. We could feel the springs in our mattress and... More
