This old motel should be demolished. It is in very bad condition. I had to shoulder my way in to get the door open. Paint is peeling and walls are marred. If the rate was $29 per night, it might be worth the price, but certainly not what I had to pay! The only saving grace was the use of... More

Our room was in an adjacent property (Spruce Glen) which is a converted motel. We were informed *at check-in* that there was no air conditioning. While the room itself was fine (albeit, stuffy and warm), we were placed in a room next to a series of three rooms that are apparently used to house employees and equipment (this despite the... More

My wife had signed up for a two day Writers Workshop at the Grand Marais Arts Colony. All we needed was a clean place to lay our heads at night. This was it! The price was right, the room, while dated, was very clean. No AC wasn't a problem - we are Northern Minnesotans so we know the nights cool... More

The Spruceglen Inn is an adjunct to the more highly rated and pricier Aspen Lodge. In fact, you check in at the Aspen Lodge for the Spruceglen Inn (SGI) which is right next door. SGI has no AC which is probably not needed most days, but it was when I was there. Fortunately, there is a ceiling fan in each... More

The forecast was for a beautiful weekend in Grand Marais and my wife and I were looking for an affordable option to enjoy the downtown area. After considering our frugal budget we made reservations at Spruceglen. Everything else was either too expensive or a fair drive from Grand Marais. We were quite tempted to cancel our reservation after reading the... More

Had an unplanned delay in getting to Isle Royale (Wenonah didn't sail due to high waves), so had to lay over... it was a Wednesday in July, and found walk-up rates of around $100+ in Grand Marais, so we worked our way down... Pros: walking distance to the harbor/downtown/restaurants. Use of the pool and hot tub at Aspen Inn. Free... More

AspenLodge, Front Desk Manager Aspen Lodge & Spruceglen at Spruceglen Inn, responded to this review

Zman319 is correct. These rooms are very basic. A place to lay your head, watch tv, keeps you warm and dry on wet days...our price reflects the same when compared to other rates around. Aspen Lodge and Spruceglen are run with the same staff. You may have read on Aspen Lodge's review that we have just gone through a staff... More

My boyfirend, dog, and I stayed at this hotel to finally have a getaway together and see the fall leaves. We were put in a smoking king room b/c that's all they had available when I called a week in advance. The price was $79 a night. We were very disappointed to get their and realize we had ended up...

This year we have stayed in 36 different units while traveling around the US. This one by far was the worst we have come across. This is a very small and very old strip motel with parking at the door. It has NO AIR CONDIITIONING. The windows need to be open for ventilation so you hear the conversation and TV... More
