“Why pay more?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

We loved the Mangy Moose! We had everything we needed in our pet friendly room. It's maybe a block to the lake round the best western and into town and over $100 less than those hotels on the lake. We were really only in our room at night and walking distance to shops, restaurants and the lake. Well definitely be back!

Room Tip: Rooms 9 and 10 are pet friendly.

We were to arrive late in the evening, after check-in time. They made a special accommodation for us to check in late. Room was SO clean and quiet! May rates for all rooms were only $69...can't beat that! The Mangy Moose was conveniently located near the gas stations, downtown, restaurants and easy access to Hwy. 61. Would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend to other travelers!

Room Tip: See their website for photos, rates and descriptions of rooms.

The check-in was very easy and fast. They have a very fancy little machine for check-in that we liked very much (all of us are tech geeks). Dave was very helpful in providing information about the town and stores. If you are going to Grand Marais, check on "Sven & Ole's" pizza and also "Best donuts of the world"!

The room (No. 7) was very clean and the bathroom seemed to be just renovated. We (2 couples) spend one afternoon and a night there. The room had two queen beds, a relatively big LCD TV (?) and a small storage room. An iron and a table were in the storage and a small frig and microwave were in the kitchen. The bathroom was equipped with a hair dryer, lots of towels and two soap bars (no shampoo btw). The evening became cold, but the room temperature was conveniently warm as we set it on the thermostat.

I would recommend Mangy Moose and will try it again next time we go there.

Room Tip: Our room was number 7.

We had three nights in Grand Marais, and enjoyed our stay at MM - cabin No. 3. Service was really great - and friendly. The room was quiet in spite of location on the main road through town. We would have liked a shelf near the sink (which is outside the bathroom)

The motel is in a very convenient location allowing my friend and I to walk nearly everywhere in town. We stayed in room 5, which has a full kitchen and two beds in seperate rooms. Very neat and clean. A great home-base for our weekend adventures.

Contrary to its name, the Mangy Moose offers tidy, modern hotel rooms in a north woods style. Our room had a coffee maker, mini fridge, TV and wireless access. The motel is right off Hwy 61 but is far enough back from the road that it was not loud. It is a 5 minute walk to the waterside in Grand Marais. But the best amenity (for us) is that the Mangy Moose is pet friendly. They even had a biscuit waiting for our dog!

The Mangy Moose was a top value. My room was reasonable priced, clean and with appropriate amenities. The owners were attentive, friendly and responsive. I recommend the Mangy Moose. Excellent location. Their commitment to the Grand Marias community was apparent when I learned they gave a discount to me because I was attending a class at the North House Folk School. A nice surprise.

Green Features: I appreciated their commitment to recycling and other environmental conscience methods.
