“Not Mangy at all!”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Stayed at the Mangy Moose for one night after a 3 day backpacking trip on the Superior Hiking Trail. Two people and two dogs. This is a very accommodating motel if you have furry family members.
Very clean and close to town. Friendly hosts. Would stay at the MM again!

The Mangy Moose is a charming little motel in Grand Marais, and a great value. Our room was small, but it had everything we needed, including a coffee maker, fridge, and microwave. It was surprisingly quiet too. Our only complaints were that the bed wasn't very comfortable, and the shower pressure was minimal, but the room served our needs for our stay.

Room Tip: The larger suites on the ends of the motel may be more comfortable.

We had a very nice room-- cozy and very neat and clean. Liked having a mini fridge and microwave, and the grocery store right next door-- saved a little money by not having to eat out so much. Like that we could park right outside the door of our room.

Dave and Don are awesome. The room had everything: lots of outlets for charging equipment, big, fluffy, absorbent towels, large coffee pot so if you love your coffee that's great, plentiful ice in the ice machine, in-room fridge and microwave, plus they're dog friendly with a new fenced-in dog park just a couple blocks away! And you can't beat the convenience of driving right up to your front door.

Room Tip: We had number 10 on the end of the motel, which had a nice cross-breeze.

Green Features: You have a magnet for your front door so if you want fresh sheets and cleaning, just put it on the outside of the door. We really liked that. Also there are three recycling containers by the ice making it easy to recycle soda bottles, etc.

A fabulous place to stay in Grand Marais at a good value. Rooms are cozy, well maintained and right in the heart of everything. We will most definitely be back. Little touches like the flowers planted, comfy linens and kitchenette were great.

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.
