This establishment is in a good location on the harbor at Grand Marias. The good news is that overnight guests get 50% discount at the restaurant which has a fairly diverse menu. The bad news is that the motel is sorely in need of renovation. The carpets appeared worn, the curtains were really worn and "stringy," and the bedspreads need...

We chose the Harbor Inn based on price and location and found you get what you pay for. The pictures on their website make it look like it is right on the water. It is actually across a road from the water. The view from our balcony room was good but the room itself left a lot to be desired....

We were very pleased with our room and the location. It is right on the Grand Marais harbor and near all the shops. The room was more spacious than most and the shower was nice. The towels were thick and fluffy. The best thing was we got 50% of our breakfast at the Pie Place cafe which is part of...

We come to Grand Marais often and have our favourite hotel to say, but for this short overnighter, we decided to stay here. We often come to the restaurant: The Pie place which we love for their great breakfasts. The hotel is built in the old style with individual street entry on the ground floor where our room was. Room...

When I started trying to find a place to stay in Grand Marais I was discouraged by all of the high prices and almost gave up. Then I found the Harbor Inn. The price was very reasonable for the area and I must admit I was a little skeptical, but it turned out to be everything we could have wanted...

We stayed Oct 1 & 2. Rate $125. The room was not clean. The air was stale. The sheets and pillows smelled. Mold around the rim of the bathtub. Drapes didn't close. Outdoor carpeting on the balcony ripped and torn. We needed to leave after one night due to a family situation. Jeremy the manager was not in and would...

We checked in (cost about $170 for a weekday) and immediately realized this place wasn`t as great as their webpage indicated. When we arrived we had to wait for the cook in the kitchen to check us in. On the way to our room we had to pass through a dark concrete rear passage which was dungeon like. We immediately...

We stayed at the Harbor Inn the end of July. The view from our front door was amazing! You could not get any closer to the harbor. The room was showing a little age, but it was clean and comfortable. I would stay there again, just for the location and view.

We pulled into Grand Marais looking for something sweet to eat. Had planned on just ordering Pie. We all realized we were a bit hungry after a long drive from the cities. Still had another 32 miles to go to get to the cabin. But all ordered dinner, and took the Pie to go. The Walleye was wonderful. The service...

When we checked in, we were happy with the location, although parking can be a challenge. Our room wasn't clean, and we had to ask them to clean out the fridge. Little things, like BOTH lights in the room had bulbs in them, but neither turned on. No outlets! Had to move a dresser to charge the phones. The hallways...
