From the minute we called to make our reservation, we knew this place would be perfect! The hospitality, the food and the service were amazing. Our view of the harbor was excellent, and we enjoyed every minute of our stay! Highly recommended and within walking distance of everything.

Harbor Inn is very basic----no frills but very comfortable. Free parking in the rear but you can walk to almost everything in town. Directly across the street from the harbor and city park. Great restaurant on the first floor. If you have a second floor room, you will get a workout using the stairs! If you don't need all the...

The Harbor Inn provides good discounts for off peak travelers and we took advantage on a weekend in April. On the harbor and in town makes this Inn convenient to the action and the water. Room was clean and comfortable. Service with a smile. Breakfast the next day in attached cafe was excellent. Jeromy and family make this a comfortable...

Our lakeside room afforded us the best view in town... the harbor, breakwater and lighthouse ! Staffers were accommodating and delightful. Excellent bed, clean, affordable room. We ate breakfast every morning during our 4 night stay at the in-house Pie Place Restaurant (discount price for overnight guests!)...the maple sausages are fantastic, as is the rest of the fare...not only at...

I have stayed at this property several times and it is my favorite place to stay in Grand Marais. The location is fantastic. Close to everything. The Pie place which is within the complex on the main level has fantastic food and as a guest, you receive a discount on breakfast. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the staff...

We stayed during the off season and got an online deal. So the stay was cheap compared to the regular prices. The Harbor Inn can not be beaten as far as the location goes! We stayed in room 15. It's facing the side street, is ground level and had easy access from street parking. Towels and sheets were very clean....

The food was amazing!! The owner was really helpful and nice.The motel and restaurant face towards the lake, so the views are great. We were there during off season, so it was not very busy and there was plenty of open rooms. I will definitely stay there again. I recommend staying here when you are in Grand Marais!!

We stayed during the really quiet January season and so think we got a very good deal. Our room was really nicely done out, had a huge bed, was warm and had really good free wifi. The view out over the frozen harbour was a winner, as were the breakfasts downstairs at the Pie Place. Guests get a discount on...

We had a second floor harbor viewing room. It was lovely. Exactly what you'd expect a north-woodsy nautical themed motel to be like. There aren't a load of amenities and you do enter your room from the exterior balcony of the building - but we didn't care at all. It was charming, clean and had a great view of the...

We paid 140.00 for one night here and I am kicking myself for not just bringing a tent. The location is great...but that's where it ends. There was mold in the shower and it needed new caulking. Shower fast because the hot water is hit or miss. The room smelled bad and the window was missing part of the crank...
