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

We were a little nervous to book a room here after reading the earlier reviews. Decided to go reserve a room and give it a chance as only needed to stay for 1 night. Not the place to go if you are planning on spending your time in the room...but we spend our time at the bar across the road... More

I have mixed feelings about Curley's because the people are very nice, the location right on Whitefish Bay of Lake Superior is AWESOME and, therefore, worth the down side of this motel. We fed gulls, had a big fire in the firepit with other guests and had a WONDERFUL time with the perfect location/view here till late evening. This is... More

My husband and I are not prissy people but this motel really needs some help. We stayed here July 11 & 12, 2013. Let's start with the pro's. The woman at the front desk was really nice and helpful in giving recommendations. Location of the motel is wonderful. It is right on Lake Superior and has a gorgeous view. We... More

When we travel (I travel most weeks for my job) I don't expect fancy rooms or any extras however - I do expect clean. It can be well worn even to shabby and as long as it is clean (and a good value) I will come back. Not to this place. Dead bugs, dirty floor, debris on the towels, and... More

We chose this motel over Paradise Hotel because it was a one story building with a door to the outside instead of inside hallways and 2 story's, which makes it easier to unload our stuff since we can just park in front of our room and just walk in ( as we had a couple of elderly women with us)....

I need to keep reminding myself that booking a motel comes with trade offs. This place is nice and the beds are comfortable but if you want state of the art, this will disappoint you. The view of Lake Superior is unbelievable however and, on a sunny day, is worth the price of admission.
