Really should rate between average and above average... Great view of lake, lovely grounds, excellent location, friendly staff, loads of parking and motorcycle friendly. Rooms on the small size but did have small sofa, small fridge, microwave and good shower. Not much space to hang clothes and lack of electrical outlets for charging devices. Room appeared very clean until we... More

I booked a 2 night stay here (minimum 2 nights required) so I could run the Whistle Stop event in town. The location of the motel is great. Very close to downtown, right on the main road, beautiful view of the lake. The room, however, was another story. I knew it would be no-frills, and I was fine with that.... More

We spent a night here on our way home. It is very conveniently located along highway 2 and has a great view of Lake Superior. The room we had was small but very clean and served our needs. Nice owners. A busy place.

This motel had a beautiful view of Lake Superior. The room was very reasonably priced. The front desk was very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and had fridge and microwave. The bed was ok could have been firmer. I would definately come here again just for the view and outside grounds very nicely kept. Also pet friendly.

We chose the Crest Motel because they allow a dog. Driving in, we were excited by the beautiful, well kept grounds and the great view of the lake. At first glance, the room appeared to be fine, with one double and one twin bed. When we went to bed, my husband in the full and me in the twin, we... More

I'm giving this Motel a 5 rating because of the location, the great outdoor seating (rare to find even in good hotels/motels) Wonderful views. The room was basic, no bells or whistles, so to speak, but it did have micro/fridge & coffee maker. It was clean. Front desk very nice. Short walk down to a nice Mexican restaurant. Would most...

Nice basic motel with a good affordable price. Great view, wifi and HBO. Some rooms have a small couch and table. Bathroom was updated and clean. I like old fashion motels where you drive to your door making unloading a case very easy. Owner is very social,entertaining and willing to chat a bit. SMART! I will visit again as it's... More

Notified owner and he went to room with me but found he "couldn't smell anything". He stated that the rug was recently shampooed, and in another statement indicated that new carpet was recently installed. (Funny - why would you need to shampoo recently installed carpets???) Upon request for change in room, he reviewed bookings and stated he could not offer... More

I loved this place! It's family owned and operated and I'm all about that. Stayed for one night with my husband and son. The rooms are basic but it was clean, comfortable, quiet, and the beds are comfortable. The owners are very nice and cared a lot. I will stay here every time we are in the area!
