“Beautiful location, friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We truly felt welcomed as one of the family at this motel. Even though it was packed out, on Labor Day weekend, the staff was there, giving friendly service to this picky traveler, including all kinds of advise on what to see and where to eat.

This is a decent hotel but nothing special. The rooms were clean and the staff was helpful. Nothing stood out as either bad or great. Breakfast was decent with a nice area to eat in. The lobby area is nice. The rooms were clean and in good shape. The worst thing here is lousy or non existent cell phone service and the WiFi was so bad we gave up.

We were there for 1 night and had a great stay. The lobby is one of the nicest we have seen - warm, welcoming and decorated perfectly for the North Shore. We didn't use the pool but the pool area was large and inviting. The patio facing Lake Superior would have been a great place to sit - if we would have had the time!
Our room was very nice and the breakfast good/comparable to other breakfast buffets at motels. We were on the second floor and the lofted area (with seating) overlooking the lobby was a nice feature. Again, the lobby was beautiful and being 2 stories high made it very unique.
We had reservations for 2 nights and decided to head south mid-afternoon after our first night. The staff was very gracious about letting us check out a day early - and with no cancellation fee. We were very impressed with the young lady at the front desk and how she handled our request to leave early so we would have more time at our next destination.
This Lodge is a good value for the location.

All staff and help were friendly, Place was very nice but forget the internet. I suppose because of remoteness it was so sow as to be almost worthless. Since I was on vacation I did not get too upset.

We've stayed at this hotel a couple times now & have really enjoyed our stays. Great breakfast area, large opening great room area & lots of places to just hang out. It rained the majority of our stay but we were in a great location to get to some great hiking areas & when it was pouring, the pool & hot tub were there for us. They also have games to borrow. It was a quiet place to sleep too. Super clean room. Overall great place & a great value!

Stayed here for 6 nights while hiking along Lake Superior's North Shore. Room was very clean and comfortable. Large fridge, microwave, and single serve coffee maker in the room. Showers provided hot water without a wait and facility has a nice pool & hot tub on site. Breakfast was above average with scrambled eggs and either Canadian Bacon or link sausage depending on the day. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. They have bikes for rent although we did not take advantage of them. Location served our needs well as we traveled as far south as Gooseberry Falls State Park and as far north as Grand Portage State Park on the Canadian Border. Tofte park just down the street offers nice public access to Lake Superior and we found the Holiday gas station & store next door very convenient during our stay. My only complaint was that the free wifi is so sloooooooooooooooow that it is nearly unuseable, but I wasn't there for the internet so will not let that deficiency affect my rating. Vacancies were hard to find in the area during July and the Americinn provided a good value compared to other area rates. I hope we get to come back some day.

Before leaving home I read all the positive reviews for this hotel. I was very disappointed. On the positive side, the room was clean and it was furnished well. We had a King Jacuzzi room but did not take advantage of the Jacuzzi. We had a 3 night reservation but left after the first night for the following reasons: we had absolutely no cell service - this hasn't happened anywhere we've traveled in several years; the "high speed internet" was impossible to use, we finally gave up; the bathroom was very small, the tub was missing it's drain plug and the shower curtain rod was nearly coming out of the wall; Barb - who was the only person on duty from the time we checked in at 2:45 pm until we checked out the next day at 10:00 am and was also managing the breakfast by herself - was very accommodating and you could see she was working very hard but every time we went to the desk we had to push a button on the phone and wait until she came. I did appreciate being able to end our stay early and I was happy with the room itself.

Thank you for your comments/review regarding your recent stay at AmericInn Of Tofte. We understand that cell phone reception/service as well as internet access are key factors when deciding on where to stay while you are away from home. I acknowledge that we currently have some limitations with our internet speed and we are working with the county (Cook) to help resolve this problem. The entire county is currently undergoing the installation process offering broadband internet access when complete. This project is expected to be completed and available to us during the fall of 2013. There has also been a AT&T cell phone tower installed in the town of Schroeder (just 4 miles away) and service is also expected to begin during the fall of 2013. We have some big, exciting changes coming up and we feel confident that once these services are available to us, we will be able to meet and/or exceed our customers' expectations. Please keep it in mind that internet service as well as cell phone reception/service will not always be an issue while staying with us. We appreciate your comments which are crucial in our continued quest to provide excellent service to our guests'. We hope that you will consider staying with us in the future.
