We've stayed at this hotel several times when we want to stay on the North Shore. It's right in town, very near the Coop and close to the best restaurants and stores. We had a Grand Room this time which is roomy and comfortable and has some outside seating. The beds are great. The only downside is the free breakfast... More

A Best Western? In Grand Marais? Stop thinking that. Clean rooms, an exceptionally friendly staff, balconies overlooking lake Superior, and a pretty decent breakfast. It's also located close to "downtown" Grand Marais (it's a small town), and a short drive to the gunflint trail. You may think you need a B&B or something more Grand Marais-ish, but don't overlook this... More

Nice hotel, clean rooms, pet friendly. The breakfast includes warm "World's Best Donuts"...what could be better?! Perfect location to everything in Grand Marais. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful and every encounter. We would definitely stay here again. The only issue we had is that the room was listed as water front...we booked online and when I got... More

Location right on Lake Superior with a balcone was perfect. We booked on line, requested a top floor room and the request was honored. Room was very clean and quiet. Bed was very comfortable. We hope to go back again.

The Gunflint Trail is about 2 miles from this hotel so you can begin the drive and hike many trails. Also a good location for walking to the various dining options in Grand Marais. The rooms are nice with a view of Lake Superior.

Every room is facing the lake so it is a gorgeous view fro everyone. The rooms are modern and decorated very nicely with touches of lake superior. The location is superb being close to downtown and all of the attractions. Would stay again!

The breakfast area was overcrowded for two hours, mostly out of food, unstaffed in the three times I tried to find either food or a seat, and messy, with lots of angry guests who left to eat elsewhere.

Dear Gerald M, Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience while staying with us. We apologize for letting you down with our breakfast service. Our breakfast attendant had a bicycle accident on his way to work. He hurt his arm and was late. That set off a chain of events that made that morning less than... More

Wonderful stay. The Best Western lodging was very clean, well maintained, very newly updated and had friendly personnel. Our room was very large, which allowed for a sitting area. We enjoyed a great view of Lake Superior from the balcony. Enjoyed eating our breakfast overlooking Lake Superior . I hIghly recommend this motel when travelling to Grand Marais, MN.

I have always stayed at the B.W. for 20 years. I have always had a wonderful stay, the rooms are always clean and kept up. The staff is always friendly and helpful, breakfast is good. I have never looked at another hotel in town!

The best thing about this hotel was our own little balcony to sit on (even ground floor) and watch the waves & gulls not more than 50 feet from the shore. Wonderful cool breezes all night long into our room. Rather wonderful! The room itself was nicely decorated - and bathroom was beautifully tiled (& always lit by helpful nightlight).... More
