The staff, Jeremy and Patricia and another front desk lady were all exceedingly helpful and pleasant. The hotel is in the process of upgrading and truthfully aspects were quite dated, but the wifi worked reasonably well the beds were comfortable. The Inn is right downtown in easy walking distance of most everything in Grand Marais. I do hope that the... More

We've stayed here before, but will not return until they renovate the rooms. Although the room was clean, it had some other serious deficiencies. One electrical outlet box was hanging out of the wall and another didn't work, two lampshades were broken, baseboard heater was falling off the wall, caulking at base of tub looked black (like mold), carpet outside...

This place could be a gold mine! It sits right on the harbor and overlooks Lake Superior. The room we had was very dingy. The carpet on the porch was pulling up and we had to be careful not to trip over it. No air conditioning but there was a box fan in the room. Bathroom was quite small also.... More

Shower ran hot and cold. Shower curtain was stained brownish. No A/C, there was a box fan but only one outlet to use.... More

We were fortunate and ended up on first floor in one of the units that had A/C,. We were first assigned a room on 2nd floor with no A/C. He said open the window and it would cool come night. Before being moved to the first floor the manager / owner brought up a fan for us. When we moved... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the Harbor Inn for two nights, and wished it could have been so much longer. We had the King Harborview Suite, which is actually a fully furnished and stocked one bedroom apartment. We had three children with us, and this room fit all of our needs. The couch converts to a queen size... More

Older motel but right across the street from the lake. We had a sitting area out front and we could enjoy all the views. Very clean and management very friendly. Would stay there again. No restaurant but within walking distance to several places to eat.

Walking into room 14 was quite an experience. Way overpriced to begin with, (Over $150), I could not believe the water stains on the carpet, broken and cracked covers over the heat vents, and outlets that do not work. Plenty of rust to go around, The tiny bathroom was filthy. All of this and no air conditioning. For all the... More
