We were driving on Hwy 71 and happened to see this place. Rates are good, beds are new, place is being really spruced up by the new owners. We happened to have our fishing poles with so we are going to get some bait and fish off their dock. Oh, did I mention it is on a lake? You get...

First, I want to thank the new owners of Spirit Lake Motel for their sincere efforts, dedication and commitment, to keep a place like this "alive", in the day and age when places like this that i visited with my parents as a child, are sadly disappearing. In the ever fast pace of work and home, I enjoy the things...

The Spirit Lake Motel is under new ownership- and WOW have they turned it around! All the hard work and effort they are putting in is really improving the place that we have stayed at a few times. This is NOW a motel I would definitely recommend- and I can't forget to mention that the lake view is spectacular!!!

Our room was very clean and had all the amenities. The lake is absolutely wonderful - clean sandy beach, fire pit, and clear water! They have a pontoon you can rent too. They are under new management so things are under construction. Talked to the new owners - a young couple from the cities that are super warm and welcoming....

Enjoyed our stay at the Spirit Lake Motel. They have done a lot of work on the place since they took over. They have shingled the roof, are busy painting and overall have made a lot of improvements. Our room was small, just a one bedroom, but it had a really nice bed, and we slept good. A new TV...

My husband and I needed a place to stay as we payed a visit to the town where my great-grandparents came from. We stayed at the Spirit Lake Motel. Welcome to the REAL WORLD.... It's located by the lake, the weather was perfect, compared to where we live, the air was fresh, no open mines, no noisy trains, although we...

Menahga is a small quaint little town worth visiting with only this motel, it would be best to go 20 minutes further to Park Rapids. We were just finishing up a month long vacation from MN to ND, MT, SD back to ND and thought a stop to visit some long lost family in Menahga would complete the trip for...

It pains me to write a negative review and with keeping in mind that the owners, Julie and Michael are great people. However, their motel is NOT so much a great place. Booking a reservation was...odd, to say the least. I called from out of state and spoke with Julie who confirmed a room with a queen size bed at...
