“Last minute, needed hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

The hotel lobby is beautiful. There is a small area for breakfast daily, which includes waffle makers, and there was scrambled eggs and sausage on the day we stayed. The hotel is very clean and the staff was friendly. The ice machine was out of service so had to ring telephone to get the front desk clerk to get ice. It advertises itself as quiet and we had a much different experience. Doors were slamming all night, kids were running up and down the halls and stomping down the stairs. I do believe my review would be higher if we didn't experience noise from the moment we entered until the moment we left.

Room Tip: Definitely stay on the second floor. I cannot imagine the noise the poor people on the ground floor...

We truly felt welcomed as one of the family at this motel. Even though it was packed out, on Labor Day weekend, the staff was there, giving friendly service to this picky traveler, including all kinds of advise on what to see and where to eat.

This is a decent hotel but nothing special. The rooms were clean and the staff was helpful. Nothing stood out as either bad or great. Breakfast was decent with a nice area to eat in. The lobby area is nice. The rooms were clean and in good shape. The worst thing here is lousy or non existent cell phone service and the WiFi was so bad we gave up.

We were there for 1 night and had a great stay. The lobby is one of the nicest we have seen - warm, welcoming and decorated perfectly for the North Shore. We didn't use the pool but the pool area was large and inviting. The patio facing Lake Superior would have been a great place to sit - if we would have had the time!
Our room was very nice and the breakfast good/comparable to other breakfast buffets at motels. We were on the second floor and the lofted area (with seating) overlooking the lobby was a nice feature. Again, the lobby was beautiful and being 2 stories high made it very unique.
We had reservations for 2 nights and decided to head south mid-afternoon after our first night. The staff was very gracious about letting us check out a day early - and with no cancellation fee. We were very impressed with the young lady at the front desk and how she handled our request to leave early so we would have more time at our next destination.
This Lodge is a good value for the location.

All staff and help were friendly, Place was very nice but forget the internet. I suppose because of remoteness it was so sow as to be almost worthless. Since I was on vacation I did not get too upset.

We've stayed at this hotel a couple times now & have really enjoyed our stays. Great breakfast area, large opening great room area & lots of places to just hang out. It rained the majority of our stay but we were in a great location to get to some great hiking areas & when it was pouring, the pool & hot tub were there for us. They also have games to borrow. It was a quiet place to sleep too. Super clean room. Overall great place & a great value!

Stayed here for 6 nights while hiking along Lake Superior's North Shore. Room was very clean and comfortable. Large fridge, microwave, and single serve coffee maker in the room. Showers provided hot water without a wait and facility has a nice pool & hot tub on site. Breakfast was above average with scrambled eggs and either Canadian Bacon or link sausage depending on the day. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. They have bikes for rent although we did not take advantage of them. Location served our needs well as we traveled as far south as Gooseberry Falls State Park and as far north as Grand Portage State Park on the Canadian Border. Tofte park just down the street offers nice public access to Lake Superior and we found the Holiday gas station & store next door very convenient during our stay. My only complaint was that the free wifi is so sloooooooooooooooow that it is nearly unuseable, but I wasn't there for the internet so will not let that deficiency affect my rating. Vacancies were hard to find in the area during July and the Americinn provided a good value compared to other area rates. I hope we get to come back some day.
