You can hear the waves out your room’s balcony and build your own or smell the fire pits on the beach. Grand Marais always has chilly nights, but the huge hot tub will warm you up fast! It’s open and not overcrowded even with COVID restrictions. The room bathrooms are also modern and make for a nice hot shower after a day of hiking, biking, Skiing, sightseeing — whatever Lake Superior adventure you find!

Hotel's Favorite
Highly recommend this hotel! The location is right on Lake Superior. Rooms are spacious, clean, quiet, and has a balcony that overlooks Lake Superior. Has a beautiful large hot tub with a waterfall inside and a large fitness center. Hotel doesn’t have a pool but my kids still had fun warming up in the hot tub at night after wading/ swimming in the lake. Due to COVID they are not offering hot breakfast but still providing hot options that are ready for you the next morning as take out. Location of hotel is perfect you can walk to all the shops downtown and it’s right on the beach. Purchase some wood and have a fire one night on the beach. Or bring your telescope for amazing star gazing at night. We saw beautiful sun rises each morning on the beach. We loved sitting on our balcony looking out over the lake each day it was so relaxing! I would absolutely stay here again and would recommend it to others. Loved this hotel!!!!!

This hotel was absolutely wonderful! Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Recently renovated and extremely clean. Our pet-friendly room was also recently renovated, very nice and spacious; and we loved to sit on our own balcony off of our room. Spectacular views of the lake and Artist’s Point as well. Hotel was walking distance to everything in town, very nice! We especially appreciated the Continental breakfast with individual bags and also with an option for a hot item (ordered the night before). Our favorite was that food items were offered until 10 pm, which was nice because local eateries close at 8 pm and we are late eaters. Delicious food (flat breads, salads, apps; plus beer and wine), and great service and dining area to eat in. Additionally, staff (and other patrons) followed Covid mask/sanitation protocol, which was great! Thank you so much for an amazing stay, we can’t say enough good things and really appreciate everything! We look forward to staying there again! :)

Beautiful hotel and great location. Rooms were spacious and bed very comfortable. Cleanliness was stellar. Breakfast to go was a nice touch. It was basic but in the day of COVID, it is to be expected. Highly recommend as a home base of spending time on the North Shore!
