I chose this motel at random looking for something on the North Shore within easy driving distance of the Canadian border and possible to drive to from the Twin Cities via Ely in one day. I arrived at 3:30, checked in and then drove to Grand Portage. Returned to the motel to eat a take-out supper on the balcony overlooking Lake Superior. Later that night an almost full moon lit up the sky behind thin clouds - an almost magical sight. Room was a good size for one or two people - 4 would be very crowded. Slept well but didn't wait for the continental breakfast that wasn't served until after 7:30 AM because I wanted to be on the go before 7:00.
