Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Staff was very friendly, but the facilities is rather simple, old and outdated. The nightly rate was rather high, maybe because there are not many competitions. So, it did not a good value for money.

Love the Aspen Inn!
We love the Aspen Inn! We have stayed here two years in a row now, and we plan to do so in the future. The rooms are clean, beds are comfy, it's close to town, and it's affordable, especially for places in Grand Marais. We also love that we get to bring our dog with us. Yes, it's a little dated, but we didn't go to Grand Marais to sit and admire a room! For us, this motel had everything we needed and nothing more - just the way we like it.
