“Puts the "Grand" in Grand Marais”
Reviewed September 18, 2011

I just returned from a 3-night stay, my second one at this facility. It is wonderful! Friendly staff, beautiful view, comfortable and beautifully appointed rooms (with GREAT showers), good breakfast (don't miss the donuts!)......all make for a great stay next to the greatest of the great lakes in a really funky little town.

Room Tip: All the rooms face the lake so they are all perfect!

We landed in this hotel when we cancelled our backpacking trip to Isle Royale due to inclement weather. What we found was a very well managed, well appointed motel. Everything from the mattresses and towels to the amenities was first class and included refrigerators in every room. Furnishings were new or updated throughout. We observed but didn't use the large, indoor hot tub. There were two computers for public use in the lobby, as well as wi-fi. The breakfast offered pancakes to order, fresh bread and fruit, and great coffee. An attendant was on duty the entire time - never was the line's freshness or the room's cleanliness a problem. The staff were friendly and pleasant in each encounter, making sure we were pleased with our experience. Here is a resort that put's the guest's comfort and security above all.

Room Tip: The Beargrease rooms are large and off the main hallway in their own wing. Many other rooms have gr...

We've been vacationing in Grand Marais since the '70s, and this has become our base when we go there each summer. The (relatively) recent upgrade has only improved our opinion. The rooms are wonderfully comfortable, and each one faces Lake Superior. Service is always friendly and accommodating, the rooms are quiet and stylish, and the breakfast includes World's Best Donuts! A reliable home away form home on the North Coast.

Room Tip: We ask for an upper floor in the main building, assuring us of a private balcony.

Just loved a mini-getaway with a friend at this hotel.The rooms are spacious and well-appointed with everything you could need! A mini-kitchenette-with coffee maker,fridge and microwave.The tiled walk in shower was amazing with a dual shower head with settings and adjustable height! Large wide screen TV had multilple channels and excellent reception-not always a sure thing on the north shore! The hot complimentary breakfast was excellent and the setting pleasant.

This is an excellent hotel on the banks of Lake Superior. Served breakfast in tight quarters but overall an excellent stay!

Very nice people. Nice room and wonderful city.

Very comfortable hotel, set right on the shores of Lake Superior, in the Grand Marais area. My room had a king bed and fireplace, which even in the summer was a plus when the cool night air arrived!
The best feature is the setting....situated magnificently on the bank of Lake Superior, and with many (or all) rooms facing the lake front. I've been at this hotel previously, stayed here again this past week, and would absolutely return again!!
If you want to experience tranquility and peace, just a couple hours out of Duluth, I highly recommend this Best Western in Grand Marais, Minn!

The service was top notch, the room was VERY up to date and classy, from the flat screen t.v. , to the tile in the shower. Grand Marais in general is a wounderful place, but the hotel makes it that much better , I loved that we just open the patio door and our 4 week old daughter would just fall asleep to the sound of the waves, it was her second time in a hotel and she was so calm here, which made our stay alot calmer! I as a traveler have stayed at many hotels at various price ranges and never experienced a continental breakfast like I did here, Their was scambled eggs with bacon in it , sausage links, an awesome pancake machine, and much more. My advice to anyone traveling to Grand Marais who is planning to stay in a hotel if their available get a room you wont regret it!

Room Tip: The best thing about this hotel is that every room is on the lake! If you are going for a couples we...
