“I'm torn.....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

I've written this 5 times already and the answer is: Caveat Emptor. this was a last minute change in work that allowed time off for a spontaneous trip. It is a wonderful drive up the north shore of Lake Superior with hidden rivers, state parks and lovely tourist towns to explore....where you and many others all together provide the livelyhood there. Take the less traveled roads near the shore for views. The BW appears remodeled where most of the noise is filtered out and all of the amenities are packed into the room so that two people would be a crowd. My room faced so that it had a nice view but not THE view or the airflow. It is very well kept and the people are friendly and helpful. Hindsight: do your homework and find one of the novel B&B's where you should expect similarly priced novel. Oh yeah, across a dirt parking lot is the local CoOp; the town is only a block away.

Room Tip: Placed to allow views of this smaller bay, try the middle section that faces 'up the coast'...

If you are going to the North Shore, travel to Grand Marais and stay here. This place has done it right! The rooms are large & have all the amenities you need with the bonus of a 2 head shower,microwave, refrig and couch. In addition, it has a beautiful view of Lake Superior...and not just a view from afar....you are right on the lake so all there is a beach below your window and then the lake! This place is within walking distance to basically everything in town. We will be recommending this place to all our friends who travel there!

Room Tip: 3rd floor was VERY quiet.

This is a great little hotel in a cool little town!
Excellent view, large rooms, free breakfast.
A great place for a quick getaway!
Lots of good restaurants nearby, throughout Grand Marais (especially Harbour House).

It's worth the drive. The view is awesome. Even though the hotel allows dogs, it smelled and looked very clean. The staff was very nice. The breakfast buffet was very nice, and tea and coffee available though the night. The one and only thing that could have made it a little better would be a in door pool. But we would stay here again.

Room Tip: 2nd floor view is awesome.

A lot of national brand hotels are "upgrading" and "updating" with various results. This Best Western Plus has done it right. Rooms are comfortable and current and the bathrooms are a real treat. Step into that delightful shower and you'll forget you're surrounded by wilderness. Lake Superior is right outside the window. Price is competitive for the area. We just completed a 10-day Superior Circle Tour and this was the best place we stayed.

This was a nice hotel right on the water, within walking distance to all of downtown Grand Marais. MOST rooms are clean and updated to modern amenities and decor. I DO recommend if you are not traveling with pets to make sure you get a room that does NOT allow pets. The 'pet' rooms are not updated and definitely have an 'aroma' of pet (urine, pet smell). This was extremely disappointing. The other rooms we saw, however, were very nice.

We really enjoyed our stay! I loved being able to have the patio door open and being lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves. Room was gorgeous and very clean (I have dust and mould allergies and they were not triggered). Staff very friendly! Complimentary coffee had a nice flavour!!!!
