Our room was simply outstanding. Warm and charming décor yet with modern finishes, and to echo a previous reviewer - sparkling clean! Beds were super comfortable, bathroom was spacious and again, sparkling clean! Our stay on a Saturday night followed a family trip to Madeline Island where we had stayed at an upscale inn, yet we absolutely slept best here... More

This "Kitchenette" was far more then expectant. A large room with two king beds and the largest bathroom I have ever had in a "motel". The kitchen area itself was the size of a small apartment. Everything was very clean and very homey! The associates were very accommodating. At this Inn they offer a lot of extras ...... bikes to... More

We stayed in a queen room. The room was clean and had nice furnishings. It has a spacious sit down shower that has a body wash, shampoo and conditioner dispenser. Which is so much nicer than those sample size ones they give you at the hotel. The room has a ceiling fan which is also a nice feature. There's patio... More

Our queen bed room was a lovely tastefully decorated room, feeling like a five star hotel in charm and comfort.The table and chairs right in front of our door was a morning delight with coffee and view of Lake Superior. Don't miss the fresh white fish they sell at the bait shop either. The service and atmosphere was friendly, helpful,... More

Had a great stay at this Inn. For those who love to fish it is great, and for those who don't it is still wonderful! The room we stayed in (#1) was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to stay near the Apostle Islands!

Ashland is a nice little town, we walked down the street 3 blocks to eat dinner it was a relaxing... More

Stayed on 7/23/16. Despite all the challenges this town has endured the past two weeks from severe weather, there was nothing we can find fault with. This is an old motel that has been gutted 100% and modernized with an up north / fishing theme on Lake Superior. We were visiting relatives and knew we would be late. I called... More

From my initial phone call right through until the end of our stay here, our experience was nothing but positive. Arrived after a long day on the road and were shown to a spacious and sparkling clean room with a lovely kitchen! All rooms are drive-up units, which makes for easy unloading of the car and they are pet-friendly too.... More

My son and I are on a motorcycle trip around Lake Superior. It would be great if Motels in Northern Ontario provided this sort of quality. Very clean, quality beds, excellent service. The location is quiet and rooms have a kitchenette if that's your thing.
