“Relaxing quiet location”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

We stayed in room 12 which was clean and well set out with 2 queen size beds, both of which were clean and had decent linen. Beds didn't seem too comfortable but having said that we both slept like logs and didn't ache on waking. A fly swatter was thoughtfully provided and came in very useful. A fan would've been nice as it was a hot night but we opened the window and were rewarded with a nice breeze. Breakfast was sufficient with a large selection of home baked goods. Breakfast area was small but there is ample outside space to enjoy it in. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and the price is an absolute bargain!

We stayed three nights at the Hilltop Cabins in one of the motel cabins. Hard to gauge the customer service since we didn't meet the owners. Would suggest doing introductions during breakfast, in passing or by making a brief visit to the room or cabin. Upon arriving, there was no one in the office, but they did have our keys and room number set out for us. The rooms had two queen size beds, hardwood floors, a decent bathroom, flat-screen TV, front and back windows and a heater. Our room was clean, but the showerhead needed replacing and the walls could have used some cleaning or touch-up paint from some of the bugs (probably mosquitoes). The beds were satisfactory. The breakfast is light but decent. Eating area was small and could have used some dusting. Facility also has a game room and a washer and dryer at no cost. Quiet time is respected by all. Location is blocks from the center of Grand Marais and overlooks Lake Superior.

I totally enjoyed my stay from the minute I arrived until I left to come home. Jeanette, the owner was warm and welcoming. The cabins and rooms each have their own charm and are clean, cozy and comfortable. All have everything you need to enjoy your stay... Excellent beds...TV.. Radio.. Dishes and cookware.... Linens. The light breakfast available was great too. Give them a try... You won't be disappointed.

I really enjoyed my stay Hilltop Cabins. When we arrived, we walked into the office, and there was nobody there, but they had our keys set out for us. We went into our room, the Gone Fishin room, which was very nicely decorated. The room was clean (though there were a few bugs, which didn't bother us, since it was a cabin style setup!). There was a refrigerator and a TV. The wireless internet did not work, though. It freed us up to enjoy the beauty around us! From the gazebo area, you can see beautiful views of Grand Marais and Lake Superior. Compared to our previous stay at a different hotel in Grand Marais, this was great!

We loved our stay at Hilltop Cabins! Moose Cabin was spotless, very well done and fully stocked with everything we needed. The bed was comfy and the linens were great. Loved having a fireplace (gas) and outdoor balcony porch with great lake view. We didn't eat there, but breakfast looked great. Owner was accommodating and helpful with tips and things to do, and was very friendly. We got reservations at the last minute, thankfully, and we were sure happy we went. Only minor suggestion for owner would be to have cleaning wipes or fantastic, etc under counter for guests to wipe table or counters with...minor, minor detail in a really great stay.

Room Tip: The Moose was great! Log style, cute decor and not overdone. Spiral log staircase going to 2 bedroom...

Two of us stayed in the room named "The Possum." After reading the reviews 1/2 good; 1/2 bad we figured it was worth a shot. Before arriving we decided if it was a clean room with a decent bed, we were fine. Turns out, the room was very clean, but the mattress on the bed was as bad as some of the earlier reviewers had warned! The breakfast was nothing special either. All-in-all it was clean and it worked for us.

Room Tip: Look at the photos of rooms/cabins on-line before you reserve one.

My family stayed in cabin 1, the Loon. The view from the deck of the harbor and Lake Superior was excellent!! The cabin was spotless and the kitchen stocked with glasses, silverware, pots, and some spices/salt and pepper. The beds were very comfortable as was the living area. Our party consisted of 3 couples and the sleeping area were well laid out for us.

After readinh some reviews about the poor internet/cell signal I was expecting not to get much. I got 3 bars of 4G signal which was plenty fast for web browsing and sending pictures. I never tried the wifi.

Breakfasts were tasty although quite limited in selection. The ladies who run the business were super friendly and helpful. Overall, well worth the price!
