This is our second year here. Owners and staff are accommodating and great to work with. Our room was spotless and the beds were comfy. The "moose" is located right on the scenic highway and close to everything. Walking distance to downtown. Love love love staying here.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 27 September 2016

We spent 3 nights at the Mangy Moose and were very impressed with this establishment. This motel's owners show a great deal of pride in what they have. Our room was spotless. The food prep area was separate from the main room with nice counter space to work on. We never heard any of our neighbors even though there was... More

We enjoyed our stay here. Very clean & cute rooms. Will most likely stay again, as has all that we need for a good price. Gave 4 stars this time, because noise from neighbors slamming doors & contractors a few doors down was a little annoying.

we always have a great time when we stay at the Mangy Moose. Beautiful hotel, clean and cordial. We will stay here again as soon as possible. Great view of the bay. Privacy is great here. They only use water for bedding and towels on your request.

We LOVED the Mangy Moose Motel! It was one of the cleanest places we've ever stayed. The room was cozy but had everything we needed. It was quaint and decorated for the fall with flowers and pumpkins on each porch. We will definitely go back!

We took the room because it was the only motel in town that let us stay two nights instead of three over the MEA break. It turned out to be a nice place to stay as well. It's only three blocks from downtown and has been newly remodeled. The owners were friendly and helpful and the Mangy Moose is now... More

We have stayed at the Mangy Moose twice. It is small, within walking distance to town, and impeccably clean. The staff is very friendly and accommodating to all of your needs. I would highly recommend it!

We had a wonderful seven night stay at this amazing little motel. Absolutely clean, very comfortable, great basic amenities, everything we needed. Most gracious hosts and location is handy to all things Grand Marais has to offer. We have found our second home up north! We travel with two under 10 lb dogs many times so cannot always stay here...
