We stayed at the Aspen Lodge for a curling bonspiel. The hotel is kept up well. Our room was on the 3rd (top) floor and had new carpeting. The kind bed was very comfortable. There is also a table and 2 chairs in the room. The window opens for fresh air and to hear the waves. The continental breakfast had...

Stayed one night last year and for what you get and even had a partial view of Lake Superior was a good deal. The rooms are very average so do not expect much but if you are passing through it may be a good option.

Friendly front desk and accommodating . Rooms in the third floor have a great view of the lake. Basic rooms, outdated furniture & not so clean hallways. We could do better, oh well it will be ok! Breakfast included , near downtown and other amenities. Windows do not lock properly.

Every fall, for decades, we have stayed at the Aspen Lodge. And every fall, for decades, we check out the other Grand Marais properties, and still come back here for the best value. But this year the property was looking more tired, plus the sink in our room was cracked as was the vinyl flooring by the tub. Breakfast offerings...

We stayed here during a trip to the north Shore. Rooms have not been updated for quite some time. Mattresses are torn and stained, the carpet was filthy, didn't look like it had been vacuumed. Beds are hard as a rock and pillows are flat. I had to use pillows as a mattress topper! Complained at front desk and was...

We were doing the North Shore Falls Drive and unfortunately did not book a hotel in advance. We found a room at the Aspen and were very unhappy that we stayed here. The prices were high, the carpet was dirty in our room and the faucet was so hard to turn on that we had to pull with two hands....

This hotel has a good location to walk into Grand Marais. The rooms are from the 60's and need some maintenance like carpet cleaning. It was adequate for the little time we spent in the room. Watch the strict cancellation policy.

The check-in time was longer then reasonable. One person on the desk and difficulty checking in. The carpet in the room needed to be cleaned, the carpet edge along the tile at the Jacuzzi was pulling ahead and the tack strip was exposed. The exterior doors into the building were not secured at all day or night. The room was...
