AmericInn Becomes Black Beach Inn

For years, the AmericInn in Silver Bay with its “mile slide challenge” and annual Mall of AmericInn has been a fixture in Silver Bay. But on August 1, the contract held by the hotel with AmericInn and Wyndham expired. The hotel renamed itself “Black Beach Inn” and joined the GrandStay Hospitality chain of hotels.

GrandStay is a growing Minnesota-based company. With locations in Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Oregon, the chain boasts a culture of “honesty, integrity, and an expectation of excellence,” and describes itself as “small but growing.”

Black Beach Inn aims to provide exceptional lodging and guest services. They will also seek to improve the “overall experience” with updated rooms and facilities. “We are an excellent destination for outdoor enthusiasts,” General Manager Jeff Daniel said.

When asked what some main differences would be now that the hotel is Black Beach Inn, Daniel commented that there would be many differences. Marketing will be improved, and Black Beach Inn will create a distinct identity in Silver Bay and on the North Shore.

In December 2021, Jeff Daniel became the general manager of the hotel and will continue to serve as General Manager of Black Beach Inn.

On August 28th, Black Beach Inn celebrated its grand reopening with light refreshments and a door prize drawing, won by Whitney and Deb.

Black Beach Inn is conveniently located within walking distance of Black Beach and Lake Superior. A miniature golf is located on adjoining property and across the road is the North Shore Adventure Park. The inn is just a short drive from Palisade Head and Tettegouche State Park; and just a hop, skip, and a jump into Silver Bay proper for food and necessities. Snowmobile and ATV trails lead right to the inn’s parking lot. No matter the season, Black Beach Inn can be a starting point for your North Shore adventures.

Hello! My name is Haley Searls. I’ve loved writing from an early age, though my nonfiction writing at five years old consisted mainly of weather and gardening reports. I still have some of those early articles: “It’s sunny.” “It’s still sunny.” “It’s raining.” I’m glad to say my writing has improved since then. I wrote a guest post for the Silver Bay Public Library blog, and was the writer/editor of the newsletter for my American Heritage Girls troop. I have been writing for the North Shore Journal since June 2022. Besides writing, I love reading, drawing, photography, music, and spending time with family and friends. Two books that have really influenced my writing are Reforming Journalism by Marvin Olasky and Writer to Writer by Bodie and Brock Thoene. As a journalist, I want to share positive community interactions and inspire people to make lasting connections. Article topics that interest me are ones which show community activities and involvement. Such articles include community events, youth accomplishments, library programming, small businesses, local history, local artists and authors, art programs, and cultural events such as theater and dance. If you have an article idea, email the North Shore Journal with my name in the subject line! I look forward to hearing from you!
