I loved the location because it was perfect for strolling the beach and walking to the shops in town. In fact across the street is the Famous Donut Shop, Sven & Ole's Pizza, Beth's Fudge, and an assortment of novelty shops, jewelry, bookstores, taverns, restaurants and the Trading Post, an awesome store with a fantastic range of outdoor clothing, equipment, maps, etc.
Hotel rooms are reasonable priced, spacious, and clean but lack charm as the walls are completely void of decoration. Pretty standard as far as hotel rooms go, but the views and access to Lake Superior are great. Rates vary according to season and amenities. We paid $72 for our room which had 2 queen beds, table and chairs, and a walk out door to a deck overlooking the pebble beach. There is a restaurant on the premises which serves a full menu for all meals, highlighting fresh fish of course.
Massages are available from 8am-8pm Monday through Saturday, and a multi-person hot tub is open daily till 11pm. One word of caution: they do accept pets in some rooms so inquire prior to booking. Our neighbor had a large dog that kept us annoyed much of the time with noisy running, barking, and pooping around our door.
Check out the web site for rates and additional information.
