“excellent motel”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

Stayed this March in a double queen room - surprised by the quality of the room - clerk said the building was completely renovated about 2 years ago. Crisp, heavy fitted sheets, heavy mattress pads over new - comfortable mattresses, new carpet, granite countertops, comfortable chairs and very nice tiled shower. Balcony with sliding door overlooks the lakeshore, or if you happen to be here this late winter, what looks like the Arctic Ocean. Our first night the ice was popping and crackling - really cool. 42 inch TV with a nice sitting area. Breakfast was pancakes, eggs and sausage - ham the next day - with all the normal muffins, yogurt, juices. Very clean and well maintained.

Room Tip: We stayed on a Sunday and Monday night, low occupancy, very quiet, but i think the structure is wood...

Pet friendly with a beach to walk the dogs, a short drive to the Gunflint ski trails, close to shops and restaurants, excellent breakfast, very clean and great service - we'll stay at Best Western Grand Marais every time

Had a great time and stay at The Best Western....close to snowmobile trail system, Hottub to warm up in and great breakfast selection. Being able to have coffee and juices during the day was also great.

I've stayed here a few times over the years and there are a lot of good things to say about the place. The staff has always been super helpful, the rooms are spotlessly clean, and the lakeside units offer gorgeous views of Lake Superior. The hotel is within walking distance of downtown shops and restaurants, the rooms are reasonably well appointed, Wi-Fi speeds are decent, beds and pillows comfortable.

Here it comes.... But, the next time the hotel is remodeled, I hope they will look at improving the sound proofing. During our latest stay, we could clearly hear our neighbors, who seemed to be speaking at normal, conversational volumes.We could also hear the people in the room above us walking.

We travel enough to know to always have ear plugs with us, which helped greatly. We also travel enough to know that this otherwise very nice hotel has below average sound proofing.

Room Tip: Bring ear plugs.

We have stayed at the Best Western Plus 3 times now and always get the King Suite with steam shower. This room is amazing with the very roomy steam shower, whirlpool tub, and fireplace. It has a small balcony that looks out over Lake Superior. The room comes with nice comfy robs also. Housekeeping always does a nice job! Super comfy bed with lots and lots of pillows. Of course we will go back again!!

Minnesota's north shore is spectacular! We stay at the Superior Best Western often because of the comfort, view, and cleanliness of the rooms. We stayed in a corner King Suite Lake side room this time. I was able to photograph the sunrise and capture pictures of Artist's point from the balcony of the room. The continental breakfast has a nice variety of items. The beds and pillows are super comfortable. Try the Crooked Spoon for supper!

The rooms look like they were recently remodeled...the shower was fabulous after a long day snowmobiling. Breakfast was spectacular...hot cakes, eggs, sausage, hot oatmeal as well as the normal toast, cereal, muffins, etc.
