I stumbled across this motel from a feverish search online because pretty much the entire area was sold out besides resorts. The nightly rate was low and the picture made me think of old movies from the '70s and stuff that went down in roadside motels. THIS IS NOT THAT SPOT!

Stayed here one night while viewing the fall colors on the Iron Range. Room was large and extremely clean. Beds were comfortable. Micro/Fridge in room. Nice TV with good channel selection. Small lake right behind motel with a walking trail all the way around. Reasonable rate. No breakfast, though, but that is offset by the cost. Friendly owners.

We stayed here in August and we were pleasantly surprised that all the reviews were spot on about this place! The owners were so nice, the room was very clean, had coffee out on the deck with a great view of the lake and the best part was there was NO spiders or no webs ANYWHERE! I would definitely stay...

I would recommend this place compared to the other hotels, the price is reasonable. The room we stayed in was hot and we could not open the window, which they would have allowed us to have a open window.

The owners were extremely friendly and had even changed my reservation to a room further away from the front office for a quieter experience. I slept great in my clean...

The room may have been a little smaller than the big price motels, but there was enough room for the Wife & myself. The room was very clean, good shower with good water pressure, microwave & refrigerator plus coffee maker. I think it was about a 36"flat screen tv with cable including HBO. My Wife & I both think that...
