Our group of six were in suite 310 - top floor, three-bedroom, two bathroom suite positioned on the corner of the building. It was a fabulous set up - we really loved it! The bedrooms were clean and closets had sufficient hangers. Would be nice if every bedroom had a luggage rack, but we got along. The kitchen was large...

We only stayed here one night on our road trip tour along Lake Superior but had a wonderful upgrade to a suite with a tremendous view of the lake. Although there are plenty things to do in the area we didn't have time to take advantage of them. We would stay here again if the occasion presents itself .

This hotel is within easy walking distance of most of Grand Marais' restaurants and shops. I think every suite has a view of Lake Superior. The furniture, kitchen appliances, dishes, pots and pans, etc. are all in excellent condition. It's nice to stay somewhere the dishes actually match. The DVD player worked and we used it. The view was excellent...

Four friends and our elderly moms went for a weekend getaway to lovely grand marais and stayed here. It was perfect for us: right on the lake, within walking distance of everything, lovely large rooms with kitchenettes and comfy beds, beautiful common room with huge fireplace and games for all. Can't say enough good things...but you do pay a price...

Love the place, great rooms, modern and clean. Staff is very nice with a location as good as it gets in Grand Marais. All the previous positive reviews are spot on, great place to stay. It's not the cheapest place to stay but it's worth every penny. It is really nice having the kitchen even though we didn't use it...

stayed 2 nights. had to move rooms, but trip was short notice, so no biggie. First was 2 bedroom suite on north/east end, and faced lakeside. Not too great - too hot from morning sun, and too noisy. 2nd night was on south/west end - fantastic room. If you go, ask to be there!
