Walking into room 14 was quite an experience. Way overpriced to begin with, (Over $150), I could not believe the water stains on the carpet, broken and cracked covers over the heat vents, and outlets that do not work. Plenty of rust to go around, The tiny bathroom was filthy. All of this and no air conditioning. For all the... More

We couldn't stay at the motel as it was booked but the restaurant was FANTASTIC. We enjoyed the chicken pot pie and a lovely salad with home made dressing. The wine list was adequate and the knowledgeable staff helped me to make a good wine choice. We did end the meal with their very fabulous pie. Lots of choices served... More

I'm pretty amazed by how bad this hotel was, and I stay at Motel 6 fairly often so wasn't expecting the Hilton. The bathroom was so dirty that I could write in the grime on the heater. The window in the room could not be closed from inside the room, as the crank was not attached. There was an odd... More

Basic, clean accommodation. There was no lake view, breakfast, air conditioning, lift, or hairdryer included in the rate of $162.40 per night, including taxes. Breakfast was available to purchase at half price, from the attached diner. Friendly staff. Over priced for what you get.

We stayed at this great Inn and cant wait for another visit. Easy check in. Wonderful staff. Rooms are exceptionally clean. Surprisingly quiet considering the downtown location. The cafe is wonderful. Great pies too! We'll be back!

We have been fortunate over the years to be able to do a lot of traveling. Having said that I feel that we are qualified to rate this hotel as one of the worst places we have ever had the displeasure of staying at. The door was almost impossible to open, the room had an overpowering odor, the bathroom was... More

Our stay there was a mixed bag of experiences. On the upside we were very impressed with the welcoming attitude from the manager and wait staff at the restaurant located onsite. The location is right across the street from the bay and only a block from the downtown shops. Having the restaurant in the same building is definitely a plus!... More

Ellie at the front desk and Jeremy the manager are so great and friendly. The rooms are super clean. The bed was so comfy and plush. We had the view of the harbor which was fantastic. Close to restaurants and bars. We needed a hotel at the last minute and they helped us and got us a great rate. I... More

I stayed at this motel on two separate occasions recently and both times I had a great experience. The owner was very friendly and accommodating, a pleasure to interact with, in fact. The view looking out on the Grand Marais harbor (hence the property name) is fantastic and it's close to many activities in the city. The second time I... More
