The hotel rooms have recently been redone so the interior of the room is much nicer it was before. The place is ideal for snowmobiling.

The cabin was perfectly comfortable and the location was ideal for visiting the Upper Peninsula - would definitely come back here again!! The staff was also very friendly and ready to provide local advise on dining and attractions.

Not sure how old this property is (looks fairly new). Several minor things suggest the property will soon be at a cross road. Either fix many minor things or become dated. The fridge had not been de-frosted and had so much ice the door could not close properly. The bathroom sink was plugged and drained very slow. The front of a table fan fell off. However, the bed and pillows may have been the most comfortable I've slept on anywhere. Also, the breakfast was EXCELLENT. I'll certainly go back and hope I will be for many years.

My husband and I have stayed several times now at the Hilltop. The owner and the staff are very polite and accommodating. We've never eaten the breakfast offered, so I cannot really rate it, so please don't take it as a negative. We always eat breakfast in town because we prefer a full meal. The cabins are wonderful, we like having our own space. And, the motel rooms are nice too, if you are passing through or want to save a little money, and don't plan to spend much time in it. The Hilltop has renovated and freshen many of the cabins; but they do get used a lot, so sometimes the wear of previous renters shows. The view of Lake Superior from the Hilltop property is great and always a photo opportunity. Overall we enjoy Hilltop and will continue to stay with them when we visit Grand Marais.

We love cabin number 2. It has a great two-person tub! It is just about the cutest place you would ever find. Our three day stay was totally relaxing. We love the sweet little town of Grand Marais. We'll be back!

I was pleasantly surprised with the large room and accents. I had a very pleasant stay and the morning home baked breakfast goods were great. I certainly would return and will recommend it to others.

My wife and I are both newlyweds and young doctors. This place was really pleasent to stay, we stayed in a small motel room but it was extremely cute and basically a mini-cabin. Really a pleasure, the breakfast was FANTASTIC and homemade desserts were abundant. Coffee was fine, air was pure and the hilltop was serene. Couldn't recommend it more! Very clean and comfortable, simple and affordable. What more could you want?

We arrived late & in the rain, but Jeanette graciously pointed the way to our comfy, cozy upgraded room. The headboards on the beds were adorable and the bathroom was recently updated! We didn't expect the homemade breakfast casseroles & fresh fruit while sitting in the most creative, homey setting you could imagine. If you're in the area, be sure to book your overnight stay at Hilltop Cabins!

Hilltop Cabins was a great place to stay on our trip. The room was very clean and comfortable. The grounds were well maintained and close to town. The owner was great to work with and reservations were easy to make. We would stay here again in a heart beat!

I was surprised at all the things that needed fixing....hacked up door on beautiful cabin...terribly uncomfortable beds in loft....shower walls loose.....these were just things I noticed, being a builder....otherwise everything was beautiful and comfortable and less expensive than The Beach Hotel which was an overpriced dump. I love Hilltop!!

We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back!

This is a wonderful place. I would like to see this as a place to take a group! Fire pit area and cabins in addition to the motel like rooms.

I enjoyed my stay at Hilltop Cabins. Even though we stayed in the motel portion, it felt like we had our own little cabin due to the fact that it also had a handy little kitchen. It was nice coming back after a day of sightseeing and having the extra space to kick off our sandy shoes and gear. We took full advantage of the common deck area for the beautiful water and sunset views. I liked the close location to town and discovered a beach access right at the end of the street. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that a continental breakfast was included. In our room there was no tub, but a rather narrow shower. A larger person may have some challenges with that. We didn't cross paths with an Innkeeper until the morning of our departure. Check-in was simply finding our assigned room number on a white board. I liked the laidback feel to the place, and definitely made myself at home, but there were some guests who were having issues with the Wi-Fi and cable connection, so the scarcity of someone to help was a little problematic for them. All in all, I enjoyed my stay and the relaxing atmosphere. I wouldn't mind staying in one of their larger, newer cabins on a future visit.

Went with a couple of other families. Got to see a bunch of the cabins. All very nice. Great location.

We spent 3 nights here but won't be back. The cabin we were given was not the one we had reserved. No closets, the only comfortable chair had a broken arm, exterior steps were wobbly, owners were rarely around, shower was horrible, no Internet at cabin and poor reception at the office. We missed breakfast twice because the wrong hours were posted; however, it was wonderful when we finally got there on time. Free washer and dryer were a plus. Beautiful sunsets above a slice of Lake Superior.

Hilltop was a very quaint and cozy place. I will go back.
4,4 en agosto 18, 2013
I had only seen the place on line and read others comments...now you will have mine. This is an adorable, clean and very comfortable place to stay. The view of lake superior from the deck is awesome! I would like to go again and wouldn't stay any place else. The one problem I had is no one answered the phone when I called or returned my call or emails. They do on line booking and send confirmation.

we arrived at hilltop cabins around 9pm after a very full day of driving and sightseeing. the shower was warm, the bed was comfy, the cabin was very cute and the homemade breakfast in the morning was really a treat. we only stayed one night, but upon checkout i overheard someone reserving 2 weeks next year after a 1 week stay this year. and a lovely view of the grand marais harbor from the deck.

The price was right. The view was great and the rooms were clean.

Had a wonderful stay at Hilltop Cabins. Watching the sunset from the deck was a perfect way to end the day. The room was very comfortable and cozy. Breakfast was delish with Baked French Toast, homemade yogurt and fresh coffee. Looking forward to our next visit.

Both the motel units and the cottages were charming (we stayed in both). The accommodations were modern, but with a touch of rustic. The location and views were excellent. The staff was warm and responsive to our requests/needs. The freshly home baked morning pastries were delicious, as was the coffee. This was a perfect experience to share with friends, but I would like to return for a private sabbatical someday, too.

We stayed for one night in the Wolf Room, one of the efficiency apartments in the Hilltop Cabins complex. We love it - perfect for us. We're here in the UP for outdoor adventures, so lots of hiking and kayaking. Hilltop Cabins were just great for us. The bed was so comfy and welcoming, the little kitchen (small stove, fridge, microwave with dishes (etc.) was perfect to store, warm and eat our food. The town of Grand Marais was just adorable. There were several cute places to eat that we didn't get to but we plan on going back. Breakfast the next day was yummy - much better than most hotel continental breakfasts and nothing could beat the view from our room of the coast. The room was very clean, very cute and perfect for our needs. Luxury? No. But that wasn't what we had expected and we were very satisfied, particularly for the cost. It was a very friendly place. We will return and stay longer to explore the area.

Clean, well-stocked cabin and friendly hospitable hosts made this a very nice place to stay; we would gladly stay again.

The staff at Hilltop Cabins was very welcoming and helpful. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. Even though we were there during the hottest week of the summer and there is no air conditioning in the cabins, it was quite comfortable with nice breezes from the lake and wooded areas. We will definitely be back!

We had a wonderful time staying at Hilltop Cabins. We were traveling with another family and we spent two nights in two of the themed rooms. We enjoyed the sunset view, and the kids loved the game room. We were totally pleased and wasn't expecting the clean and free laundry room. Breakfast was served a cozy, comfortable room. We would stay here again. Thanks to a great staff.

The view was outstanding, the cabins where very clean, and stocked with everything we needed. The staff was very friendly. Great little town and a very relaxing experience Plan on going back again next year

Great place and great people. After a long ride on a motorcycle the hilltop was a welcome sight. The room was clean and nicely decorated and breakfast in the morni g was very good. - Bob and Amy S.

My husband and I stayed here during the 4th of July holiday. We wanted to book a cabin but due to our last minute plan we could get a motel room and I must say we were pleasantly surprised. The room was just perfect for the two of us. The view of the lake from outside the room was so serene. We really enjoyed our stay and looking forward to our next trip.

Would stay again. We have recommend it to others.

Loved our stay at Hilltop Cabins! They are cozy, pet friendly, and have a delicious breakfast. Grand Marais is much less commercial and busy than the other town with easy access to Pictured Rocks. We will definitely be coming back again!
2,8 en julio 06, 2013
The location of the Hilltop Cabins was beautiful. The view of the water was gorgeous. We only stayed one night, arrived late in the day and left early. Wish we could have stayed longer. We left before breakfast so couldn't give an accurate rating. Gave it unsatisfactory because breakfast didn't start early enough.
4,6 en julio 05, 2013
We loved the homemade breakfast each morning and the quietness of the property. Classic cabin atmosphere and decor and a great location next to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Will definitely stay here the next time we visit Grand Marais!

If you are looking for a place to stay run by great people and great accommodations for the price, this is it. I have done the Northern Michigan vacations for years, in all seasons and have experienced everything in accommodations. This place is what is shown on their website and more. You will not be disappointed. Tim R.-New Knoxville, Ohio

We stayed in the Loon cabin and truly enjoyed our experience. The kitchen was well stocked, although we did have to pick up paper towels & dish soap. The bedrooms were cozy and the beds were very comfortable. The gas fireplace kicked out some great heat! The view of the bay, when we could see through the sideways blowing snow, was beautiful. We didn't really see the owners much more than checking in, but they were very nice and helpful. Overall, a great cabin to reside while staying in one of the best little towns in the UP!! (note ~ we did not experience any dining but this site made me rate it)

We stayed one night(were touring in the Upper Penninsula) & loved our "pit stop" at Hilltop Cabins. Very comfortable,clean &cosy room(we were in the Wolf room)+ great sunset views from the bedroom. We are early risers & would loved to have had some coffee provided in our room, as the continental breakfast only starts at 8am. We will recommend this place to all our friends who visit this area.
2,8 en octubre 15, 2012
Nice little cabin. Nothing spectacular, but clean and quiet which is just what we wanted. Breakfast was bread for toast, cereal and muffins. Coffee was provided. Again nothing spectacular but sufficient. One thing that was unsettling before we arrived was that I had tried to contact them via e-mail and phone to inquire about the reservation. I did not receive any communication. However all was as expected upon arrival.
2,8 en octubre 04, 2012
Enjoyed the town and environs. Great area to visit. Good dining nearby. Very relaxing.

The Hilltop Motel & Cabins was a very nice overnight stay. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was nice. The heat felt great! Breakfast was adequate but peanut butter for the toast & knives would have made it perfect.

The staff at this great U.P. hideaway are always very pleasant. It is a clean, no frills option in a beautiful setting. Love the standalone cabins, especially the newer #2.

We found the motel room and service at Hilltop to be excellent, particularly given the remote location of the accomodations. Extra benefits we didn't expect but loved: Great view of Grand Marias harbor, beach nearby, beautiful grounds and landscaping, a front porch on our motel room, a gazebo and deck for relaxing and watching the view, a community room with a washer and dryer for guests as well as breakfast items and homeade plum cobbler from plums gathered on site, and a fire pit and play court. Last but not least, it was very quiet and we were lulled to sleep by the sound of the wind through the beautiful large cottonwoods on site. Jeanette was a great host!
4,6 en septiembre 03, 2012
We had a wonderful time staying at the Hilltop Motel in Grand Marais. The next time we are there, we would like to rent a cabin. It's clean, the owner is really friendly, and we only had to walk down the road to get to the beach. It's also a nice walk into town. We will definitely be back!

We were looking for a convenient place to stay to do an overnight trip to grand marais. We were only able to stay one night but it worked out great being able to feed the baby and hand out in our private cabin. It was very relaxing.
2,8 en agosto 29, 2012
Place was okay, Would have liked area to hang clothes and shelves to put things on. We only scheduled one night and were satisfied. Breakfast items provided aren't even worth mentioning but then it falls in line with what is provided in a lot of places.
3,6 en agosto 27, 2012
The cabins are clean and comfortable and everything we needed was provide, ie towels, dishes, etc. However the location is very remote, so if you want to see the local sights be prepared that you will have to drive at least 45 minutes.
4,2 en agosto 27, 2012
Nice, relaxed atmosphere. Beautiful view. Jeanette was very helpful with directions & suggestions about activities in the area. Continental breakfast was minimal & not convenient having to go upstairs. Bigger selection of items would have been nice.

Very clean, beautiful view of lake, very enjoyable. Sad to have to leave.

This is a getaway place that has only gotten better over the years we've stayed there. Jeanette, the owner, goes out of her way to be helpful and puts alot of money back into her business for her customers benefit. The cabins are beautifully done and very clean. The motel rooms are roomy and very clean too. We love the kitchenettes but the rooms all have a frige and coffeepot too. The property has a nice deck that has views of Grand Marais, a firepit area and now also has a gazebo to relax in ! It is a nice walk to the beach area or to town. If you must contact civilization, WiFi is available too. You won't be disappointed if you chose to stay here ! S & M

When compared with other opinions in the UP, this place is a steal. Great, fantastic beaches in Grand Marais. Few suitable dining options, though.

We had a group of us and stayed in cabins 1 & 3 & motel 14. We were very happy with all of them. Cabin #1 was just beautiful...the view of the lake off the deck was spectacular, the kids loved the spiral stairs and the loft, and the basketball court that was close by. We were very pleased with Hilltop Cabins overall and would recommend it. We will definitely be staying here the next time we visit Grand Marais.

We booked #14, Gone Fishin', for one night in Grand Marais. The room was rustic with no frills, but clean and a very good value for the price. The Embassy Suites it ain't, but if that's what you're looking for, Grand Marais probably shouldn't be your destination. The view over the harbor and town is wonderful. It was quiet, with no glaring lights to disturb our sleep. Hilltop Cabins is a bit under a mile from town. A perfect walk to watch the sunset and to have breakfast in the morning. Jeanette was a pleasant hostess and we will most certainly be staying again on our next visit.
