Right on the main road (Highway 61) and not far from Artists' Point. It was very clean, and was almost like an apartment, only with beds, a mini fridge, and a microwave (this depends on which room you are in, their website has pictures mangymoosemotel.com) The owners of the place were very nice and were willing to accommodate to what...

My husband and I visiting in July of 2016 for his birthday. The room was updated, had easy access to the street, and was a bit out of the way so was very quiet. Even though Grand Marais is so beautiful, I didn't really want to leave the room because it was just so relaxing with our big bed and...

This is our second year here. Owners and staff are accommodating and great to work with. Our room was spotless and the beds were comfy. The "moose" is located right on the scenic highway and close to everything. Walking distance to downtown. Love love love staying here.

We enjoyed our stay here. Very clean & cute rooms. Will most likely stay again, as has all that we need for a good price. Gave 4 stars this time, because noise from neighbors slamming doors & contractors a few doors down was a little annoying.

we always have a great time when we stay at the Mangy Moose. Beautiful hotel, clean and cordial. We will stay here again as soon as possible. Great view of the bay. Privacy is great here. They only use water for bedding and towels on your request.

We LOVED the Mangy Moose Motel! It was one of the cleanest places we've ever stayed. The room was cozy but had everything we needed. It was quaint and decorated for the fall with flowers and pumpkins on each porch. We will definitely go back!

We took the room because it was the only motel in town that let us stay two nights instead of three over the MEA break. It turned out to be a nice place to stay as well. It's only three blocks from downtown and has been newly remodeled. The owners were friendly and helpful and the Mangy Moose is now...

I can't say enough good things about this motel! I have stayed here many times and have always had a great experience. The owners are extremely conscientious and truly care about their property. The rooms are extremely clean and very comfortable.

We have stayed at the Mangy Moose twice. It is small, within walking distance to town, and impeccably clean. The staff is very friendly and accommodating to all of your needs. I would highly recommend it!

We had a wonderful seven night stay at this amazing little motel. Absolutely clean, very comfortable, great basic amenities, everything we needed. Most gracious hosts and location is handy to all things Grand Marais has to offer. We have found our second home up north! We travel with two under 10 lb dogs many times so cannot always stay here...
