We needed a place to stay for a funeral in Rapid River, and Sall Mar Resort seemed like the right location and reviews were positive so we booked three rooms. Bob was so accommodating over the phone and just as accommodating in person. We were happy with the cleanliness and amenities and would definitely stay here again. You will need... More

We were stranded by a closed highway and fell upon this little motel by accident. The staff was friendly, the price was $40 and the rooms were neat and clean. We were going to buy a knife from the attached carry-out store to cut up some cheeze. No need...the owner loaned us one and said just leave it in the... More

Two entrances, at front and rear. The cabins are a bit dated but that's the charm of the place. Towels were small and thin, beds comfortable. Our kitchen... More

My daughter and I stayed here for 2 nights for a family reunion. Cabins had two bedrooms, a small kitchen and bathroom with shower. Beautiful grounds with a centrally located picnic area and horseshoe pit in back. A short walk down a beautiful path leads to a creek bank with a park bench and fire pit. Rates were very reasonable... More

My husband & I stayed in one of the cabins. The cabins are pet-friendly which really helped us out seeing we had our dog with us. Very reasonably priced. Staff was friendly & room was clean. Would definately return.
