We were here for just one night. The staff was very nice and helpful. The room was pretty simple, but clean and relatively comfortable. There was a decent selection of breakfast items, including French toast you could heat up, and The World's Best Donuts. For the price, you can't go wrong here.

We knew we were traveling along the north shore of Superior but hadn't identified a lodge yet when Trip Advisor sent us a notice of discount rates for the lodge. The place was just great. Nice room. Nice pool and dry sauna. Clean and all rooms have good views. Note the Lodge is three stories, but built on a hill,... More

A friend and I spent three nights before going on north to Ontario. We were not sure what we would find since the preseason prices were much lower than others in the area. What a pleasant surprise. Clean and well kept with friendly staff and everything we needed. A small but nice pool and huge soaking hot tub as well... More

I love staying at the AspenLodge when I visit Grand Marais. Location is perfect - walking distance to all the shops, restaurants and harbor (right across the street from My Sister's Place!) and a nice view of the lake from the 3rd floor. While not fancy, it is clean and quiet.....and no fancy prices!! An added plus for us is... More

So if you don't plan ahead this is your only other option as far as hotels. Besides cabins etc. The other hotels are usually full and this is the third choice. This place hasn't changed. The bedding needs updating and the beds are in a need of an upgrade. The breakfast is skimpy. But then you get to go to... More

Really enjoyed our night here, it was a very large comfortable room with a lovely view of Lake Superior. The bed was very comfortable and the continental breakfast was adequate. The lady at the front desk advised us on a lovely place to have our supper (which turned our great). We will certainly stay here again.

In Grand Marais with my 10 year old daughter - Aspen Lodge was just great. The staff was so nice, very accommodating. In our two night stay we saw the same staff, which is also nice.

I stayed at Aspen Lodge in late January 2015 for the first time - I had previously stayed at Aspen Inn (Super8) many many times over the course of 20 years. My first impression of Aspen Lodge was the wonderful lobby/breakfast space - very comfortable chairs and TV - windows galore.

We booked the Aspen Lodge (not to be confused with the Aspen Inn on the other side of town) for a weekend trip to Grand Marais. We were looking for a fairly nice place for a little get-away. I had to make a quick change after booking online for the date but when I called I was met with a... More

I will not stay here again. The floors had stains, the towels were dirty and smelled funny, the beds were hard as a rock, and everything was WAY, WAY, WAY outdated! Excellent location, but just overall a dump.
