“Best Western, Grand Marias”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

It seems when making your reservation, that all rooms face the lake, and you can sit outside (on those good weather days) on your sweet little personal balcony/porch. When entering our room, we had no glass doors leading out because we were actually partially underground until eye level, where we had a window looking at a small mound of grass. You could not see more than a few feet in front of you, as the view rounded up, past eye level and window level. Went to the office to ask for our balcony/view room. This would cost an additional 18 plus tax. Our room still did not face the lake, but the back of the Coop grocery store, it's dumpsters and blacktop, plus a retaining pond. You could see the lake from standing out on the balcony and viewing left, plus, the sounds of the peepers from the pond was wonderful . I can not vouch for sleep quality, for non of us have our best sleep away from home, but the bed and bedding were very comfortable. The room has a mini refrigerator, good counter space, a nice sized closet. Bathrooms have great counter space, but the tub is small. Water pressure/temp are good, and the organic hair products /paper packaging is a plus. The breakfast area accommodates very few people, and is minimal. There were scrambled eggs, oat meal, toast. There was a pancake making machine that was being refilled with a batter bag and not cooperating, (very nice young man from Eastern Europe servicing machine) There was an extra tray next to the eggs that was awaiting sausage. We were there from 9 to 9:20. The refill entered on our way out.

Best Western Plus on Lake Superior in Grand Marais was an EXCELLENT hotel choice for us. Having ALL rooms face the lake is certainly a plus!! The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast provided great options including hot and cold foods. One of my favorite amenities was the fresh orange-infused ice water they provided in the lobby along with various coffees/teas--and it was available the entire day! :) The hotel was close to the downtown area but not right in the center which provided a quieter stay. I definitely would recommend this hotel and stay here again when I travel to Grand Marais.

I travel to Grand Marais every summer or two and I always try to stay at this location. It has always been a well maintained property and the location is really good. You can walk to area restaurants and attractions easily from this location and you have a view of the lake.

I've written this 5 times already and the answer is: Caveat Emptor. this was a last minute change in work that allowed time off for a spontaneous trip. It is a wonderful drive up the north shore of Lake Superior with hidden rivers, state parks and lovely tourist towns to explore....where you and many others all together provide the livelyhood there. Take the less traveled roads near the shore for views. The BW appears remodeled where most of the noise is filtered out and all of the amenities are packed into the room so that two people would be a crowd. My room faced so that it had a nice view but not THE view or the airflow. It is very well kept and the people are friendly and helpful. Hindsight: do your homework and find one of the novel B&B's where you should expect similarly priced novel. Oh yeah, across a dirt parking lot is the local CoOp; the town is only a block away.

Room Tip: Placed to allow views of this smaller bay, try the middle section that faces 'up the coast'...

If you are going to the North Shore, travel to Grand Marais and stay here. This place has done it right! The rooms are large & have all the amenities you need with the bonus of a 2 head shower,microwave, refrig and couch. In addition, it has a beautiful view of Lake Superior...and not just a view from afar....you are right on the lake so all there is a beach below your window and then the lake! This place is within walking distance to basically everything in town. We will be recommending this place to all our friends who travel there!

Room Tip: 3rd floor was VERY quiet.

This is a great little hotel in a cool little town!
Excellent view, large rooms, free breakfast.
A great place for a quick getaway!
Lots of good restaurants nearby, throughout Grand Marais (especially Harbour House).

It's worth the drive. The view is awesome. Even though the hotel allows dogs, it smelled and looked very clean. The staff was very nice. The breakfast buffet was very nice, and tea and coffee available though the night. The one and only thing that could have made it a little better would be a in door pool. But we would stay here again.

Room Tip: 2nd floor view is awesome.
