The owner can do better

Pros: Staff is very friendly and welcoming guest. Breakfast has a lot varieties food. The view which facing the lake is great. Cons: Too many mosquito and flies in the room even we close the door. They just enter the room whenever we open the door immediately. in addition, There is a small gap between the door and the doorframe. Killed 10+ mosquito during first night. The Internet is only available at lobby area. There is no coffee machine in the room. The bathtub seems stuck. It drains water very slow.

Don't need much more:)

The rooms are just the right size for sleeping and getting ready for each day. I don't spend a lot of time hanging out in a hotel room anyway, when there is so much to explore outside. If your an early riser, enjoy your lakeside balcony or get on the paved path that runs in front of the hotel and go for a walk until the continental breakfast (very nice BTW) is ready at 7:30. Nice restaurants are 4 miles in each direction. One thing to note, beds are one size smaller than a queen size so be comfortable with your partner:)

perfect getaway

The staff was helpful and kind, the room cozy and comfy, and the view was spectacular. Breakfast in the morning was very ample, and again the view from the beautifully appointed dining room was serene and restful. We loved having coffee on our balcony and enjoying the sunrises/sunsets over Lake Superior. There are no grounds to walk around in, so you find your activities elsewhere. But the hotel is a very nice spot to overnight in. We will definitely visit the Cliff Dweller again.

Backpacking Trip

This is an older hotel but well kept and the view was beautiful. All the rooms face Lake Superior and so does the breakfast nook. We got some pretty pictures from our balcony. This hotel is located on the Superior Hiking Trail.

A great view with a great price

A great view with a great price. Rooms are small with an average bed and box TV. You stay there for the view, location and price. Some rooms have mini fridge and microwaves but not all. I'd stay there again if we needed to count our pennies like we did this trip.

Your balcony is overlooking Lake Superior

you could not be any closer to Lake Superior, great balcony off your room with fantastic views of the lake at sunrise and during the day.

night up north

I felt that it had a lot of charm but the carpets were really worn. The bathroom and bedding was very clean feeling. The view was spectacular and the breakfast was a good value

Great place to stay!!

It was a great place to stay. We were on our way to canada. So we drove to motel on friday, then drove the rest of the way to our cabin on saturday. Broke the drive up. Loved being near the lake, wish we could have stayed longer.
