“In need of updating”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

Formerly a Super 8 hotel. The only advantage was that it was located on Lake Superior. Room was very outdated, bed was uncomfortable and had to listen to a dog whining in the room next to us the entire time. The steakhouse next to the hotel was extremly horrible service - we went there for just a drink and had to wait 20 minutes when there was hardly anyone at the bar. Not a great room especially for $100 during vacation season, and don't plan on staying there again. Exterior was very dirty and full of weeds.

A little pricey but a beautiful location in a nice town. The staff were very helpful, courteous, and professional. Erin Kovach the manager, and Amy were very nice and down to earth people.

Washburn is a great town with some nice stores and restuarants.

I would definitely stay there again!!!

The hotel is no longer a Super 8 but apparently someone forgot to change the signage throughout the hotel.

The hotel definitely shows its age and needs updating.

The entry has no smoking posted clearly at the door but the entry and reception area has a persistent ash tray smell to it.

The rooms are acceptable with better then average internet connection. Beds are acceptable. Hotel was mostly empty for the night so was hard to judge sound proof.

Room Tip: No elevator so if first floor is nice.

we just stayed at this property last weekend. i can't say enough about the people working there. especially RILEY. we had a mix up on our reservation, thought we had made it is washburn, but had made it in ashland. even though it was a busy weekend, and he was obviously very patiently training in a coworker. he offered us a main for room for the night, lent us the phone to cancel ashland, then, later on in the evening confirmed another night for us. helpful and friendly and accommodating are the word to describe riley. the room was huge, two queen beds, clean, the basics in the bathroom. i was travelling with my over 80 parents. quiet, very quiet all around. the hotel is almost on the the water in a residential neighborhood. the only thing around is The Steak Pit, you can walk right there and enjoy a wonderful lunch or dinner. i had the best hamburger i had tasted in a very long time. my mother loved her white fish fillet. a very nice restaurant. and there is a decent breakfast at the hotel too, that comes with the price of the room. many items to chose from. all in all i would highly recommend this super 8 too anyone looking for a quiet place near bayfield (12mi) and near the water.

Reviewed 10 December 2011

After reading some of the reviews here I wanted to add our comments. We stayed at this hotel in September of 2009 and thought it was very overpriced. For a little over $100 you get a bed (which you have to wonder about sleeping in) and not much more. Basically it was dirty, the shower was not clean, the "Continental Breakfast" was bland and not something you would recommend, and the coffee was cold. Nothing was working when we were there - sounds like nothing has changed - keep driving or sleep in your car!

My husband and I took a long weekend car trip and decided to stay the night. We found the Super 8 with a great lake view. We were tired and hungry and thought it would be ok for one night. Well, first off, the room rate was off the page for such an older motel. The frotn desk gal was very nice and welcomed us. The room was old and smelled of smoke. The bed was so hard it felt like board was underneath us. The pillows were torn and the stuffing was coming out. The hot tub was broken and not in working order. Continental breakfast.. you would be better erved going to a McDonalds! The view was lovely and actually the "Steak Pit" next door was pretty good for dinner. But drive a little further and you will find much better accomodations!

The hotel had the location we wanted for a one night stay. The hotel was in better shape than i expected, but i feel very overpriced for what you get. The room was clean which was a plus, but the hotel is very old so it has that "old motel" smell. The continental breakfast was disappointing, cereal, packaged donuts and bagels. If i had planned ahead i would have definately looked for other lodging, but this was a last minute trip. One good thing is that the hotel does have free wifi, which i believe it a must at any hotel these days. Overall i was happy that our room was clean and air conditioned, just would have liked to paid a lower price!!
