chose this place for 2 nights based upon favorable reviews on Trip Advisor. We paid in advance for the king bed harbor view room and asked for an additional fridge since we were bringing a cooler with food for a week in cabins on the gunflint trail.
The manager, Jeremy couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating. He said we had the best room in the place and that they added the extra fridge.
This is a motel from long ago, sort of worn and very dated. Our room was teensy and shabby with a new king bed and a plasma flat screen tv. The vews was very good and came along with the touristy noise from the street. The first night there was a daddy long legs in the bed.
We couldn't sleep with the window open for fresh lake air because that would mean allowing the bright hall light shining right into our room all night so we were stuck with the a/c which had us both frozen by morning. Second night there was a huge black beetle in the bed.
Nothing really worng with this place, but there seemed to be nicer choices along the shoreline. Maybe try the Best Western or cobblestone condos..
Overall I was disappointed. They did all they could for us, but it is just an old place. I somehow expected it to be way nicer and romantic.
