Recent guest reviews

The resort is located in a perfect position between Two Harbors and Grand Portage. Perfect place to travel from for hiking or skiing. The motel is rustic yet relaxing. The walk around the camp is nice. Views of the Lake are out of this world. The bathrooms in the room were a bit outdated and the satellite TV never worked. We were not there to watch TV so that was fine. A quiet/rustic spot at a good value.

I liked the motel access, front and back door! Enjoied the quiet. Could involve yourself with your neighbor easily if you choose or not. Friendly helpful staff.

Food fast service. Clean. Beautiful view overlooking Lake Superior.

The staff was wonderful, they had a sense of ease about them as wel. The suite was clean with a rustic cabin feel.We enjoyed the deck which overlooked Lake Superior.

great location to Grand Marais some good eating places around close to lots of state parks. great lodge to sit an read an relax in. games too play.f

Affordable, gorgeous view, friendly staff, nice lodging.

I booked Solbakken online and I made a mistake reserving a room for the wrong day which I didn't catch until a few days before my stay. This was right in the middle of peak fall season when most hotels are full. But the staff did an excellent job switch my reservation around and finding me a room. Very appreciated and during my stay the staff also helped with a few other questions I have. Nice room and excellent staff.

Motel room #11 was comfortable enough and there was a very nice view of Lake Superior. Most of the staff was polite and helpful, except for one girl. When we checked in with her, we weren't told that the water wasn't drinkable. I made myself a cup of hot tea the second night we were there and it was awful. Went to the desk the next morning to ask about it and a different person told us about the water and gave us some jugs with drinkable water in it. We could get as much as we wanted/needed. The shower stall was so small you couldn't turn around in it. The shower floor needed to be cleaned better as there seemed to be stains or something on the bottom. Couldn't adjust the shower head and it came right in your face.

The resort was quiet and a short drive to both Lutsen Mountain for skiing and Grand Marais. We enjoyed listening to and watching the waves on the Lake. The hot tub and sauna felt great after a day of skiing. The lodge was a pleasant place to sit by the fire and play cards.

the occupancy rules clearly stated that All dogs MUST be on a leash. My dog was on a leash when I took him out to potty. Another occupant's dog was NOT on a leash and that dog attacked my dog. I screamed at the unleashed dog to go away! The owner of that dog just stood and watched the chaos. I called the after hours phone number to report the incident. NO ONE returned my call or inquired about the incident. I WILL NEVER recommend this place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
