A wonderful place to stay. We visited during October to see the peak colors of fall. The staff was excellent. Clean rooms. Close to shops and restaurants. You will not be disappointed. I recommend the street side of the hotel.

We stayed here in October, peak leaf peeping weekend and enjoyed our stay. The fact that you are able to step onto Main Street in 2 mins from your room is ideal. The rear parking is small and tightly packed, so a large SUV may be tricky. Another plus was the lovely breakfast

Hotel North Woods is perfectly situated on Main Street, filled with history, modern applications and warm staff. An elevator ride takes you from your room to the town for shopping, dining, Olympic venues, dog sled rides on the lake or a ride to the lifts on the shuttle. Rooms

We do have limited free parking available in our private lot that are all "first come, first serve". We do, however, have two designated spots near the rear entrance of the hotel for loading and unloading of your luggage. There are also multiple municipal lots located within a couple minute walk of our hotel that are very reasonably priced if you are unable to find a spot in our lot.

Thank you so much for bringing that statement to our attention. It is an awkwardly worded sentence, that I intend to clarify. They are trying to say that fees are charged as you incur them; if you eat breakfast it will be charged then, when you check-out your room will be charged then. We would never dream of charging you for a service that we didn't provide.

Our room did not have a hot tub, and I did not notice one in the common areas. Call and ask, the staff is great!

"Lake view rooms"
"The King suites facing Main Street are great for couples."
"Maybe parking lot view rooms would be quieter?!"
"Fifth floor was quiet"
"You can hear the room above so I'm guessing top floor might be best."
