This motel was very pleasant and had lots of improvements like new bathroom fixtures and carpets. Close to plenty of great hiking and within easy walking distance into Grand Marais. The only downside was some traffic noise and a somewhat noisy heating system, but overall well worth staying here.

I arrived later in the evening and the proprietor left a detailed personal note on the door about how to gain access. Inside we found an immaculate and clean hotel room with everything we needed. It was good to have frig in the room and comfortable beds. I would offer a few more pillow options since I'm used to some... More

It was the perfect room for a short get away. The owners were super accommodating and friendly. They had all the amenities that you would need. It was located close to the city center so it was easy to walk to town.

We stayed at the Mangy Moose for a weekend in October for a mini vacation and totally enjoyed it. The unit was very clean and the amenities were much appreciated (fridge!). Dave was very pleasant and informative when we checked in. We'll definitely plan to stay again for future trips and will recommend it to our family and friends.

My friend and I found the Mangy Moose to be well located, nicely appointed, exceptionally clean, and the staff friendly. In short, marvelous! The Lake and Grand Marais's attractions are within easy walking distance.

I just finished staying eight days at the Moose. This is my fourth or fifth time staying here and I always choose this motel when coming to Grand Marais. The room are cosy (read small) but impeccably maintained by Don and Dave, the owners. Best bang fer yer buck in town.

This motel has been modernised and we really enjoyed our stay. The front desk welcome was good.We were in Room 2 and it has A/C but not all rooms do. Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast cafes in walkable distance as is the Marina. Would highly recommend as a unique stay in Grand Marais.

No complaints what so ever! We always feel very welcome checking in. The rooms are always very clean and very pleasantly decorated. Weather allowing it is nice having the chairs and tables available. Always very willing to provide information and tips on the surrounding area in and around Grand Marais.
