Our group stayed here while on a trip. The rooms are good size and have plenty of storage for all your gear. We like to stay here and walk to all the places we love to go to while in Copper Harbor. We will be back.

We've stayed here the last few years for a vintage snowmobile weekend. The room was everything we needed. The food was great- pizza & nachos & french onion soup get 4 stars! and the bar staff is dreamy!!!!

Room was booked the previous week. Called to say we were on our way at 3 hours distance away that day. Arrived with my family of 5 to find we were double booked at 8:00pm. We actually walked in on the current visitors. Manager was very helpful. Called other lodgings looking for rooms. Success 15 miles away at 8:30pm. Asked...

Thank you so much for ruining my families NYE plans. I called a month ago to make reservations for their fireworks and family evening events. I spoke with Peggy the manager/owner and she confirmed they had a cabin available for us so I gave her our credit card to hold the room. Fast forward to today and I find out...

We would again apologize for the human error that caused that cabin to not be available on NYE. We called with 8 days in advance when the error, caused by a tearful new employee, was discovered. This customer was so upset, she wouldn't listen to our offer, even when we called back later. There was never any problem of "not...

Every time we're in the Copper Country, we make a stop here for a cold beer and a good meal. The Mariner North never disappoints. The chowder and the french onion soup are awesome and the sandwiches are good too! A perfect stop after a good day of hiking or snowshoeing.

My brother who never travels, and I went on a U.P. tour and just stumbled onto this motel/hotel since the others were seriously overpriced and this one was not.

Great food and decent prices in this rather remote part of the UP. Not real fast service but they were busy plus we didn't care since on a relaxed weekend vacation. Enjoyed having Lake Superior whitefish on a nice chibatta (?) bun. Great Northwoods ambiance plus plenty of TVs for those wanting to catch a game.

15 Years ago my husband and I stayed at Mariner North for our first wedding anniversary and chose to book our stay again for our 16th wedding anniversary. Oh Boy! Did we ever make a mistake! Here's why: 1. Front door to the lodging building was never locked and largely propped open; very loose security measures; anyone can walk right...

“We were in the "motel" (8 rooms) on the first floor in the back. Not much of a view, but didn't have to carry luggage up/down stairs. Am not sure if the back rooms on the 2nd floor can see the lake or not, but front rooms would be facing parking lot/road. (We really spent little time in the room, so this certainly was not an issue)”
