We come to Grand Marais often and have our favourite hotel to say, but for this short overnighter, we decided to stay here. We often come to the restaurant: The Pie place which we love for their great breakfasts. The hotel is built in the old style with individual street entry on the ground floor where our room was.

When I started trying to find a place to stay in Grand Marais I was discouraged by all of the high prices and almost gave up. Then I found the Harbor Inn. The price was very reasonable for the area and I must admit I was a little skeptical, but it turned out to be everything we could have wanted... More

We stayed Oct 1 & 2. Rate $125. The room was not clean. The air was stale. The sheets and pillows smelled. Mold around the rim of the bathtub. Drapes didn't close. Outdoor carpeting on the balcony ripped and torn. We needed to leave after one night due to a family situation. Jeremy the manager was not in and would... More

We checked in (cost about $170 for a weekday) and immediately realized this place wasn`t as great as their webpage indicated. When we arrived we had to wait for the cook in the kitchen to check us in. On the way to our room we had to pass through a dark concrete rear passage which was dungeon like. We immediately... More

We stayed at the Harbor Inn the end of July. The view from our front door was amazing! You could not get any closer to the harbor. The room was showing a little age, but it was clean and comfortable. I would stay there again, just for the location and view.

We pulled into Grand Marais looking for something sweet to eat. Had planned on just ordering Pie. We all realized we were a bit hungry after a long drive from the cities. Still had another 32 miles to go to get to the cabin. But all ordered dinner, and took the Pie to go. The Walleye was wonderful. The service... More

When we checked in, we were happy with the location, although parking can be a challenge. Our room wasn't clean, and we had to ask them to clean out the fridge. Little things, like BOTH lights in the room had bulbs in them, but neither turned on. No outlets! Had to move a dresser to charge the phones. The hallways... More

From the minute we called to make our reservation, we knew this place would be perfect! The hospitality, the food and the service were amazing. Our view of the harbor was excellent, and we enjoyed every minute of our stay! Highly recommended and within walking distance of everything.

Harbor Inn is very basic----no frills but very comfortable. Free parking in the rear but you can walk to almost everything in town. Directly across the street from the harbor and city park. Great restaurant on the first floor. If you have a second floor room, you will get a workout using the stairs! If you don't need all the... More

The Harbor Inn provides good discounts for off peak travelers and we took advantage on a weekend in April. On the harbor and in town makes this Inn convenient to the action and the water. Room was clean and comfortable. Service with a smile. Breakfast the next day in attached cafe was excellent. Jeromy and family make this a comfortable... More
