My husband and I recently stayed here in one their motel rooms for one night. The room was decorated very nicely and the bed was extremely comfortable. There was a small kitchenette in the room also. The owner served a great breakfast...hard boiled eggs, freshly baked iced blueberry scones, still warm, cranberry muffins, nut bread and oatmeal and cold cereals....

Hilltop Cabins & Motel is our favorite place to stay in Grand Marais. We've been coming here now for several years and each year we can tell that the owner is trying to do more and more improvements and updates. We enjoy the setting and the price is reasonable for the area and the amenities that are provided. Tips -...

My husband found these cabins on line. What a gem! We stayed in The Loon. The place was super clean, warmly decorated and had a fabulous view of the bay from the windows and deck. There was a full kitchen and a living room with gas fireplace/stove heater, two bedrooms and a loft. The loft had 2 queen size beds...

We decided at the last minute to have a get away weekend to the UP (in hopes of seeing northern lights). We found Hilltop Cabins online and called. We found a room(s) for our stay, arrived at midnight with the cabin open and waiting for us and settled in for the first of 3 nights. We were expecting just a...

Clean! Comfortable! Affordable! Close to downtown. We stayed in a cute one room cabin with kitchenette "The Possum". It was exactly what we wanted. A continental breakfast is available with home baked goods - yum. There are several choices for rooms or cabin size.

Hilltop Cabins is just a great place to stay and the owners and staff seem genuinely happy to see you. They keep the place clean and the view from the Hilltop deck is something I never tire of. We got into town later tahn expected and well after their normal hours. No problem, they were waiting and cordial anyway. Each...

This had been our first time here - and it certainly will not be our last! The cabins are comfortable and the views are spectacular! The kids loved the game area above the garage and the breakfast was always delicious.

Jeanette went out of her way to welcome us, made some suggestions of activities and even tracked down a place for massages in Munising for us. We appreciated the dvd player and collection of dvds for the windy rainy day. We appreciated the list of restaurant recommendations in the binder. The accommodations were fine (stayed in the motel, looks like...

Came here on a weekend getaway with family. Wonderful cabins, friendly, laid back atmosphere. In my opinion, best place to stay in town. We left wanting to build a little log home, was great! Ours had everything you would need, even a two person Jacuzzi. We enjoyed cooking breakfast there in its very own kitchen, supplied with dishes to further...

I got to this little village on lake Superior in the UP on my bike about 6:00PM and no place to stay. I picked up a little map with all the lodging at the gas station/grocery store. I drove around and checked them all out, yikes! Thank goodness the Hilltop was there. They have a small building with 4-6 morel...
