“Night waves.”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

we didn't make reservations before we left on our trip and drove by and decided to check if there was a room available because it was just a few yards from Lake Superior shoreline. The owner was friendly and very helpful, loaned me several books on Rock collecting and of the surrounding sights to see. He gave us a great deal on a 2 night stay and we enjoyed quite some time just walking on the beach and looking for Agates and other beautiful rocks. We will definitely stay there again, I loved the way the sound of the incoming waves soothed me into falling asleep at night!

i always read trip advisor throw out the worst two rating and the two best ratings the web site leads you two belive that the cabins are private thay arent one reviewer noted that the hosts drank heavy they do have a drink or two on the pinic table my girlfriend enjoyed their company and conversation one reviewer complained that they hand you a list of rules. yes they do it is nothing terrible the rules are just common sense rules the water does have rust in it the place is in the iron belt the rust is not terrible the had cabin 7 it was very clean and the view was worthy of 1 million bucks in gold the price of the room is very reasonable my girlfriend asked them for several things from extra towels to more spoons they were always happy to give they gave info about the area gave us books to read the host are great the place overall was well above average the only reason i gave a very good and not a excellant was the door on the room was hard to shut my girlfriend could not do it thank you superior shores for making us feel welcome and giveing us a great vacation

We had a great visit. Don and Linda are spectacular hosts! The motel room was clean and had everything we needed and the location on the shore of Lake Superior was amazing. Sunset was a wonderful experience.

Hotel is getting on in years but is still kept clean. Air conditioner struggled to keep room cool. Parking is very disorganized. There is a motel and cabins. The sunset view from the lakeshore was beautiful.

We found the place on line per the reviews of others who had stayed there prior to our trip in May. The room was small and not fancy but clean and orderly. Microwave and refrigerator were much appreciated because of our vegetarian diet. The rate was very reasonable. The location was even better, right next to our destination, Porcupine Mountains. And it was within the walking distance (200 feet?) to the beach! The hostess was very friendly and helpful. She was knowledgeable and eager to share her love of the area. We had a wonderful time. We will try the room with a lake view next time.

Found this place on our drive to Porcupine Mtns..would have been better to drive on. First hint that all was not well was the list of rules found after checking in. Rule one..no refund for early checkout!! Musty odor permeates all. Brown water from shower and faucets. Waterview room was stated then given a cramped room w/bunkbeds. Not sure why this guy runs a motel.unfriendly and unconcerned w comfort of guests.spins a good yarn to get a reservation though.

, Owner at Superior Shores Resort, responded to this review, June 28, 2012
We are very sorry your stay was not what you expected. We work hard to make sure our customers enjoy their stay. We take pride in being clean and comfortable even though we are an older establishment.

Our policies are handed to each of our guests at check in. We also have them posted on our website.

We would not reserve a room as water view without it being a room with water view. We had two units available for the night and the option was given, a room with a smaller window facing Lake Superior and two double beds or a room with a queen bed and futon bunk bed without a view. The room with a queen bed was chosen.

We are on a well and our water has iron in it causing the brownish color. Had we known of your concern we could have addressed it.

We would have welcomed the opportunity to resolve your issues had they been brought to our attention.

Don was very accommodating. I saw the two negative reviews on this site and disagree with both. We had access to snowshoes, maps, books. Cabin 11 super clean, warm, and accommodating. We didn't need half the stuff we brought. I would love to see this place in the summer!

Room Tip: Cabin 11 is next to the office, but it has a fence and seems private.
