Overall a nice place to spend a few days. We chose room #10, that has been just refurbished. This room has a little sitting room with comfy chair and TV, mostly separated from the bed area. Some may not like that there were no closets or a place to hand clothes, and there is no bathroom sink, but one in...

Comfortable bed, table, chairs, small fridge, microwave, shower, toilet, sink...everything we needed for a great 3-night stay. Right on the main street, close to everything. Enjoyed it very much. Would definitely stay again.

The motel is well-kept and modern. But like so many "ma and pa's" built in the 60s, the walls are paper thin and you can hear conversations (and other activity) in adjoining rooms. The truck noise from the highway bothered me too. But I'm ultra sensitive to noise and don't sleep well. The fan and ear plugs helped.

I was in Grand Marais for two days and didn't want to spend too much money on accommodations. At the same time I wanted a nice place to stay, and this cute motel fit the bill. Each person working there that I spoke to was very nice and seemed genuinely happy. The room was updated, clean and very cozy. It...

We got to park right in front of our rooms that included a sitting room with comfortable chairs along with a large flat screen TV, refrigerator and microwave. I liked the fact that the sink was...

A nice, clean place, located near the town attractions. I would definitely stay here again. The room prices are reasonable. The rooms are comfortable. If you are attending a class at the North House Folk School, i would highly recommend staying here.

In the heart of Grand Marais, walking distance to everything. Newly remodeled, excellent finish. Great price/value. The ductless mini-split heating/cooling system is so quiet you may think it is not running.

I was in Grand Marais for 3 days for a North House Folk School course and needed an inexpensive room for 2 nights. I don't think I have stayed in a cleaner motel ever. The room was equipped with a fridge, microwave, coffee pot and a great bed. It would be pretty hard to find a better value.

“Not all rooms have air conditioning, definitely not needed when we were there and maybe is never needed in this area. There is a fan supplied and the heater worked great.”
