We were on a leisure drive of the North Shore of Lake Superior. This hotel was a lovely stop. Our room was facing the lake and we enjoyed beautiful sunrise and sunset over the lake. The facility was attractive and well cared for by a very courteous and professional staff. The complimentary breakfast include both hot and cold food. We will stay there again the next time we come through the area.

Our second stay here. We love the view of Lake Superior and Artist's Point in the distance, and being in close walking distance to Grand Marais' shops, harbor, and eateries. A little spendy--but everything in this popular town is, and we think it's a relatively good value, considering it's right on the water and comes with a good, free breakfast complete with World's Best Donuts.

Room Tip: We prefer the rooms right along the water with balconies (as compared to the JB wing).

We had quite a few issues with getting confirmation and the price quoted increased. But when we arrived they had our reservation. The room was wonderful and it overlooked lake Superior . Was able to book for one nite by calling directly to hotel.

We have been staying at the Best Western Acorn Inn in Cameron, MO for decades. This time around, we found the motel of unchanged quality. It is ideally located for travelers along I35. Even though it is on the same site as a large truck stop it is quiet and gives the feeling of privacy because it tugged behind the facility.

Some rooms are no pets allowed, but some rooms do allow pets.
Front desk is closed (rollup shuttered & locked) until 7 every morning.
Parking is limited, some of the spaces are across a side street from the motel.
To go from the front parking area/lobby/check-in (which is on level 2) to
the main parking area for level 1, you have to drive either thru or around
the convenience store/gas station at the corner in front of the hotel.
Our room had patio w/ 2 chairs & railing/fence (no direct beach access).
Tile & glass wall shower & nice fold down shower fixture.
Work table and one office chair.
Granite counter & refer/micro cabinet top. Wi-fi only, slower than average.
Breakfast: oatmeal, banana, very good cake donuts from World's Best
Bakery nearby, cereal, so-so yogurt, western omelete, etc.
2nd & 3rd morning the oatmeal was too dry (solid mass).
Granola was good & not too sweet.
Sandy beach & rocky shoreline can be seen from hotel's lakeside grounds.
Can walk to downtown, Sven and Ole's Pizza is only about 3 blocks away.

We selected a ground floor room with a "partical view" of Lake Superior. The room is partially underground so the only window is small and looks out at the back of the Whole Foods Coop store. You can see Lake Superior but barely since it is similar to a look-out basement window. I would look elsewhere.

Thank you for your recent stay with us. We were sorry to learn your experience was lessened by the view from the room type you selected online. That room is one of only 3 out of 66 rooms at the hotel with an “obstructed view”. We verified you were e-mailed a confirmation that fully disclosed the view, & it was viewed twice; on 9/29 & 9/30/13. The confirmation details described the room as: 2 Queen beds, obstructed lake view (no balcony) Located in John Beargrease Wing, downstairs on first floor; stairs required (not elevator accessible). . . We are confident we can help you select a room type from which you can enjoy a Superior experience, too, as most guests shared in previous reviews . So our team can assist you with reserving a room type that best matches your wishes for view and amenities, please call us directly. We hope you’ll give us another opportunity to regain your confidence on your next visit to Grand Marais.

My sister and I spent 5 days in Grand Marais and as usual enjoyed our visit greatly. Great bed and the breakfast was delicious.. Staff was very nice and helpful. The view is wonderful and we spent quite a bit of time reading and looking at the lake.
