This hotel is on the west side of Ashland with a view of Lake Superior. In reserving this facility I had difficulty with the Choice website and a telephone call to the facility was answered by Zack, who fixed me right up with a reservation after he assured me they allowed no smoking and no pets..

Kaitlyn checked us in and subsequently answered questions about where to eat and a lighthouse in the area. Our room was cozy although some road traffic noise could be heard, but the rooms faced the roadway and the lake. This is an older facility but the rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable. While the bath fixtures are also old, that means the shower puts out enough water flow to properly rinse you, and the toilet has enough force to properly flush. The hotel's water is supplied by an artesian supply.

For our complimentary breakfast we were seated in their dining area and given full service. Something I'd not expected was that guests were quite limited in the selections that were complimentary, but what we had did suffice, and Pam did a splendid job of serving us. I just felt the owners should make it known on the Choice website of their practice rather than their normal buffet style breakfasts.

Yes, this is an older facility (originally built in the 60's), but warm and spacious, letting you feel just like down home! While this hotel has a lake-view, there is no real sand beach, but you can access the water via the grass (some high) and possibly a slight embankment if you're so of mind - this is Lake Superior!

Room Tip: Most offer lake view, all that I saw had windows on both sides.

This was a good quality hotel that we were able to find a last minute deal on. We paid $125/night and with tax it came out to be $150. I certainly wouldn't want to pay more for it because it's not a top quality accommodation but we travelled to Bayfield in high season, so the high price is justified. The service was very friendly and we really enjoyed the free breakfast (you can pay $3 extra to get a bit more from the breakfast menu, but we were ok with the free option). It's not your typical hotel breakfast where they serve you cereal, scrambled egg, sausage and some juice. They actually make your eggs to your liking here so it's much better. Room was nice a clean. The inside yard has a beautiful view of the lake so you can sip your morning coffee outside enjoying the scenery. It's also a good location right on the highway on the way to Bayfield. So I imagine it gets very popular among travellers doing the circle trip around the big lake. One thing I wished they stopped doing was advertising the Links Smokehouse restaurant (I reviewed that one as well), which is owned by the same people as the hotel. The restaurant is really not good and not worth your time/money. But we highly enjoyed our short stay at this hotel.

Don't take the three stars as a bad thing. It was clean, and what I expected it would be. Just not the greatest place in the world. Would I stay again for a night? Yes. A week? Pass. It's like a bigger park outside your room motel.

We stayed at this Hotel as a home point for seeing the Apostle Islands. We took a boat tour, Kayaked the sea caves, and rode a scooter around Madeline Island. The hotel was good and only 17 miles from Bayfield.

Room Tip: Any room facing Lake Superior .

Hung out on the deck outside my room drinking wine and watching the boats, ducks, and the lights of Ashland on Lake Superior. So quiet and a gorgeous sunset. Then got a great night's sleep on the comfortable bed with lucious pillows. Woke to a fantastic sunrise over the lake and had coffee (Seattle's Best from the in-room coffee pot) and got back on the bus for the rest of our tour with Fun Time Field Trips. Service was awesome too, thank you Deb for helping us purchase a couple of pillows!

Room Tip: Make sure you get a lakeside view - it is like having your own private deck!
