The MarJo Motel is an iconic “Retro” motel located on the west-bank of the East Two River in Tower, MN.  Built in the 1950’s the “MarJo” is a landmark reminder of the wayside motor-hotels that populated small-town rural America when road trips “up-north’ became popular six decades ago.  The MarJo may be basic, but provides tidy, clean, comfortable rooms at an affordable price. 


Located just a short stroll from restaurants, bars and shopping, it is a perfect overnight rest stop, or a home away from home for weekly stays.  Fishing (summer & winter), boating, bike and hiking trails are available directly from the MarJo, and within a five to thirty-minute drive.  Golf, X-country skiing, skating and snowshoeing are all possibilities right outside your door at the MarJo, or just a few miles out of town. The new Tower-Soudan Vermilion State Park is just ten-minutes away and Giants Ridge golf and ski resort area are just thirty-minutes away.  Tower, and the MarJo Motel, have direct access to beautiful Lake Vermilion via the East Two River.
