Anderson, South Carolina
Reviewed 12 December 2016

We stayed here one night, room was small, no refrigerator or microwave, but such a lovely view outside of the water, and chairs to sit and just relax. There was an issue with the table tops in the room being so dirty and had not been wiped clean what looked like a long time.

We stayed at King Copper because we wanted to get away and experience a totally unique place like nowhere else on the planet. Copper Harbor in many ways typifies an experience that is rare, quirky and beautiful. We felt welcome and very comfortable in the cozy motel rooms which ended up being the perfect place to experience fall foliage and...

Had lakeview room 22 which was on the end so windows were looking out on three sides. Couldn't beat the views and sounds of the birds and water. Very comfortable accommodations with its king bed. Also had additional twin bed/day bed for additional person. Shower was adequate with plenty of hot water. Slept well. Within walking distance of "downtown" Copper...

Rooms are rustic, and clean.....Staff was helpful and friendly....bed was good, and the bathroom modernized.Plenty of hot water...had satellite T.V..right next to bakery, and smoked fish market..., and a short stone throw from the ferry that runs out to Island Royal National park. A little pricey, but we will return next fall....Loved our stay !

We had an amazing time. Love the environment, the waterfront view, the grounds were beautiful, but most of all the motel staff went beyond accommodating our visit. I would come back again and again. Fully recommend!

Pros: The location is outstanding and the grounds are very nice! The owner/manager was very nice and helpful. Cons: Overpriced for the quality, the rooms are run down and are desperately in need of updating and renovation, the bed was worn out, the WiFi was completely worthless (in fact it was the worst we've ever experienced at a hotel) and...

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. I am so glad to hear you enjoyed the location and were able to soak in the natural beauty of the lake! However, I am sorry your stay did not seem to meet your expectations. The WiFi in Copper Harbor can be tricky to lock down as...

Room clean, bathroom not so much with a recently installed door that does not close. Wifi nearly non existent but that may be more the area than the hotel so be prepared. Some outlets two wire so will need an adapter for some electronics. Not awful but have stayed in many places better for less... not much competition locally. They...

Hello Annette, Thank you for reviewing your stay with us. You are correct in assuming that the wifi can be tough to get all the way out here in the woods. We have recently installed 2 new routers so hopefully that will help the signal in the future. As for the outlets, we make sure there are 3 prong power...

We stayed 2 nights here. Wasn't the best place, and copper Harbor not the most busy place to be. The view was amazing, right out of the glass sliding doors, that barely moved. My wife couldn't budge them. Family owned, in need of major renovations. Bathroom outdated and old, did not shower there.

Thank you for your review, Merleee. I am glad you enjoyed the view and quiet surroundings. It can be so relaxing around here in the fall! Sorry to hear you were not impressed with the bathroom facilities, I can assure you the shower would have been okay to use. I hope it did not disrupt the rest of your vacation....

We had the end motel next to the water. Room was very homey and comfy. It is a little outdated but it fits the "up North" décor well. Room is well kept and clean and vintage. Service during our 2 day stay was excellent. I highly recommend this motel when you are traveling and need a room to stay in...

Very friendly staff. Very clean and comfortable. It is within walking distance to the ferry over to Isle Royale. I'm not sure I'd want to stay here for a long time, but one or two nights is just fine. But the Internet is so slow that you will accomplish nothing with it.
