My husband and I decided at the last minute to take a late anniversary trip to one of our favorite spots in the U.P. I literally called as we were heading into town to check their availability and the owner was so sweet and gracious. Cell service after you get off 75 is not reliable or I would have called... More

When we got to our motel. it was not what we expected. Evidently, I had read a review and thought this was a four star motel. We had reserved the motel a week before we left and it had a 24 hour cancellation policy. The doors to most of the rooms required painting. The room was clean and neat as... More

We were camping nearby when a massive gale came in and dumped inches of water down and destroyed half of our equipment. In desperate need of a place to stay, this was the first place to stay that was not full. Now we know why. First, they tried to gouge us for $90 for the night, which we got down... More

This place does have a great view and has a homey feel, however it needs some TLC. The first thing I would recommend would be to get rid of the cat aroma in the check-in area. We almost didn't stay because of it, but wanted to try somewhere that wasn't a chain. Our room was on the lakeside, so we... More

Traveling with three dogs isn't easy, and this place accommodated us without a problem. We had a room on the Lake Superior side, which was absolutely gorgeous. We paid $85 for 2 beds, even though we didn't need two, but it gave us more room for the dogs. The room smelled musty, but the sheets and bathroom were clean. Only... More

We stayed here for one night the week of August 21st, we had a room facing lake Superior which was fantastic, but with no beach access and caution tape where the beach should be was a bit disappointing. The rooms had no coffee pot, fridge or microwave and the water smelled terrible!! The owners were very nice and the grounds... More

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
