“Lovely comfortable motel with great view”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Really enjoyed our night here, only downside was no air conditioning on a humid night. Otherwise a great find, lovely owners, large comfortable room and very peaceful. Didn't try the hot tub out but looked a good option.

Stayed for two nights on the second floor. The room was big and overlooked the small bay. The town is pretty small but there are a few hotels and restaurants as well as a little market where we stopped to buy breakfast. The building is older but the room appears to be well-maintained and thoroughly cleaned. It shows that they care about their rooms and guests. I appreciated the floor fan in the room. We'd stay again!

Stayed here one Sunday night in July 2013. Two story motel located on a ridge overlooking the town and harbor of Grand Marais. Older building but nice rooms. My room had a small fridge, microwave, coffee maker and good wifi signal. Old fashioned TV but lots of channels for this remote area. Real door keys instead of cards. Beds were very soft, not your typical hard motel beds. No AC but they did have a large floor fan and opening the window opposite the front door can get you a breeze. Probably not many days need AC next to Lake Superior. I noticed a hot tub room nearby. Gravel parking lot. I would suggest getting an upstairs room if possible. Better view of the harbor and the floors are very squeaky if you are on the first floor and people are walking around above.

I was there in the fall and thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this lovely place. My room was large, clean and very nicely decorated and very reasonably priced. The hot tub and sauna came in very handy as I got myself nicely chilled while at the the falls. The view from the windows is quite beautiful of the harbor and Lake Superior. Delphine was a very kind and helpful hostess. Would recommend this place to anyone.

This was a really nice place to stay. It's up on top of a hill and on a dead end with a great view overlooking Lake Superior. It was spacious, clean, and quiet. The owners were very friendly and helpful. She must be a great cook too, because I joked with her at the front desk about supper. She had made spaghetti and it smelled really, really good-lol. Grand Marais is a cute little town with access to the beach, and is somewhere I would want to live if it wasn't so cold in the winter.

Terry and I are so grateful to hear you enjoyed your stay.
I wish we had a restaurant up here maybe if we sale the new owners can put one in it would differently be a asset to this motel and guest.
Thank you again and God bless you and your family.

Our third stay at The Voyageurs Motel!  Delphine is, by far, the friendliest, most helpful, most hospitable and caring hotelier you're bound to meet.  The rooms are more than clean, spacious, well-equipped with coffee maker, fridge and microwave and the softest, largest towels you'll ever use.  From D.C. to Fairbanks, Alaska, this is my absolute favorite hotel at which to stay.  Set on a rise at the end of a dead end street, The Voyageurs fulfills the promise of the Grand Marais road sign:  "Nature in Abundance".

The view from your large window of the harbor and Lake Superior is astounding and soul-soothing.  [See photos of hotel and view here http://crito.smugmug.com/Travel/The-Great-Agate-Odyssey/20000798_dchhHm#!i=1577256297&k=GTZqNzz, http://crito.smugmug.com/Travel/The-Great-Agate-Odyssey/20000798_dchhHm#!i=1577239062&k=dp6spgc
and here http://crito.smugmug.com/Travel/The-Great-Agate-Odyssey/20000798_dchhHm#!i=1577239040&k=BnXpPZq ]  When you're ready to turn in and turn out the lights, make sure you take a last look out the window (yes, you can safely leave your curtains and window open) and you may be fortunate enough to feast on a view of the Northern Lights [See photos here http://crito.smugmug.com/Travel/UP-Michigan-2012/22535000_SqkFZV#!i=1803113674&k=dgggHT5 , http://crito.smugmug.com/Travel/UP-Michigan-2012/22535000_SqkFZV#!i=1803111679&k=ssBXbZh
apologies for quality of photos from hand-held camera.]

A short walk from The Voyageurs takes you to the mesmerizing agate beach of Grand Marais. A fairly short drive south on 77 from The Voyageurs takes you to Seney National Wildlife Refuge.  Make the drive slowly;  wildlife doesn't recognize the boundaries of the park and you don't want to miss the Sandhill Cranes on the edge of the road or the bear bounding across 77. Make sure you take a drive west on PAVED H58 to Munising and the Picture Rocks National Lakeshore.  Again, drive slowly and be prepared to stop and get that picture of a wolf or a grouse or whatever wildlife which ventures to the edge of the road.  Besides, why not drive slowly through the beautiful scenery of sand dunes, lakes and forests?

We've stayed at Whitefish Bay, Grand Marais and Copper Harbor. Grand Marais wins hands down for an experience of nature's peaceful and abundant beauty.  When you stay at Grand Marais, no motel or bed and breakfast can compare with The Voyageurs Motel for a center row seat for the show.
