We were in Paradise for a weekend of Scuba Diving at Whitefish Point. Curley's was a motel at the corner so we checked in. The beds were very comfortable. There was excellent WiFi coverage. The room and bathroom were surprisingly clean for where we were and what the outside of the hotel looked like. I was very pleased with the... More

We checked into Curley's at 4:00 p.m. on a weekday because we wanted to be sure to have a place to lay our heads after an afternoon of sight-seeing. We paid $20 more than any place else we stayed on our trip. The admitting clerk was downright surly. The room was shabby but appeared adequate for a one-night stay. When... More

Check-in woman was on the phone on a personal phone call concerning her recent surgery and kept us waiting. Changed rooms because of cigarette smoke but that didn't help as 2nd room also reeked as did room of the other members of our family. Beds were uncomfortable - bathroom had 2 door access which meant you barely had any room... More

We were looking forward to seeing the falls all week and even more excited to have a view of the lake! We tried to push through that our room was dirty, chairs were filthy and it smelled. We spent as much time as we could outside and when we did get ready for bed, found black hairs all over our... More

We paid over 100 for this room. It was clean but that's about the only positive thing. No wi-fi although it was advertised and the lady gave us the password but didn't say it was down four channels on the tv no access to the lake and not a very nice view even when close to the rail. Office didn't... More

Two of us couples stayed at this family run motel for one night. We paid extra for a view of the lake only to find out erosion has eliminated access to the lake and shore and mosquitoes also did their share of damage to keep us indoors throughout most of our visit. If you try to go to the office... More

An old-fashioned drive up to the room Motel in Paradise. Located on the shores of Lake Superior. Gorgeous sunrise views. Clean rooms. Friendly owners. Affordable lodging. I found the beds comfortable. Within walking distance to the few restaurants in downtown Paradise.

My fiance and I decided late on a Friday night to drive up to Paradise to snowmobile for the weekend. We looked online for a pet friendly motel in the area because we had just bought a Rottweiler puppy 5 days prior to our trip. We arrived at 5:30 am and Linda the owner was extremely welcoming and even offered... More

Traveling with a dog leaves you limited in places to stay. Curley's is far from the best place we ever stayed, but also far from the worse. In the middle of February, choices are limited, but it was warm, sheets were clean, lots of hot water and we had a good nights sleep. In room frig., microwave, and coffee. The... More

I'll start with the positive, it's a nice location with a good view of Lake Superior and the front desk help was nice enough. And that's where it ends. The non smoking room reeked of cigarette smoke, the bedding was stained, the blinds were broken, the walls were stained and had peeling paint, and one of the light fixtures had... More
