Extremely clean and very quiet the two nights we spent here while visiting friends in the area. It had a mini fridge and a microwave. It was a nicer room then where we stayed the night before at the Black Bear Casino outside of Duluth. Really.

We were at the Wigwam and it is great. We were up snowmobiling over the weekend and all went great. The trail is right next to the Wigwam, so is very accessible!! The Bungalow bar and grill in Emily is a great place to eat and the bar across the street from the Wigwam is great also. The new owner...

Nice and clean little motel. Ken was very accommodating as I arrived late in the evening. My room was fresh, clean and warm. Restaurant/bar across the street so you can stumble back if your a drinker. I recommend this motel. Top 5% of "motels" I've stayed in for ease and cleanliness.

Nice Hotel with comfy lobby for hanging out waiting for group to go to the Bungalow bar and then the annual community dinner theater musical performance. Everyone commented on beautiful large lakeside landscaped lawn for picnicking or walking the dogs. We had a great time at the show Saturday night and early morning coffee Sunday.

We have stayed here off/on for >20 years but not since the current owner re-opened. (It was closed about 5 years). We stopped by on 2 different occasions on 2 different dates, but no one was around... We did take a Business card and did end up staying just one night. The rooms are pretty much the same as they...

We stayed 5 nights for a family event. The room was fresh and clean. The proprietor, Ken, made us feel welcome and he bent over backwards to accommodate us when we needed to extend our stay. It was great to have a nice place to stay in the northwoods.

We stayed here for one night and enjoyed our stay. It is a nice, clean, friendly place. The owner is very accommodating and said we could stay late the next day. It has a comfortable sitting area and there was fresh coffee in the morning. I will be staying here again.

This little 12 room motel was a huge surprise. Clean, well kept, comfortable. The best part of the stay however was the owner. It was 31 below outside. Our car would not start. Keith the owner went out of his way to help. He told us to stay inside by the gorgeous fireplace and he would do what he could...

My family and I enjoyed a couple of beautiful days in Emily, MN. The Wigwam Motel provided us with a nice, relaxing experience. Little Lake Emily is the perfect lake to kayak on and for the little ones to go swimming. The motel itself provided us with a relaxing environment. I felt like I was at right at home. Next...
