First of our several nights spent on our Lake Superior tour. It's not exactly "paradise", but a lovely spot with cottage right on the lake. Facilities quite adequate and comfortable. Would return here if ever in the area again. The Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point is a must.

This is the second time I've rented a cabin at Curley's. This place is not modern or luxurious. It is very quaint and peaceful. They have installed new windows in most of the cabin since the last time we'd stayed there. Unfortunately, the beach has all been washed away so swimming is questionable but the view is still amazing. The... More

This is a dated property, but quaint and very nice. Pet friendly. Don't expect state of the art experience, it's a family run business not a national chain. The staff was friendly, the beds were comfortable and the showers could be very hot. We stayed here mid August, during an unusual hot summer for this area. We had hoped to... More

Did a last minute trip to the area and most (if not all) the other places were booked. Curley's fortunately had one room available. Driving up to this place it pretty much looked like a dump, walking into my room it pretty much looked like a dump. But the owner was nice and the bathroom and room was clean. The... More

We were visiting the U.P last week and needed a place to stay for the night that accommodated 6 people and 1 dog. A cabin was available so we took it. The view of Lake Superior was beautiful as was sunset and sunrise. We loved staying there and will do it again when visiting U.P.The staff was very friendly and... More

I really don't understand some of the negative reviews of Curley's. Maybe it's a matter of perspective. This is not the big city folks. I spent two nights there recently on a scuba diving trip to Whitefish Bay. I found Curley's delightful, with an updated mid century vibe, complete with pink tile bathroom. That said, the room was spotless and... More

I often stay at small budget motels and like the nostalgia you find there. Curleys is an old strip motel but has seen no updates in years. Though it was very clean, the shower ran super hot, the door was hard to slam shut, it had no wifi and only 2 TV channels. It was just over 100$ a night... More

We had a issue with our reservation and we tried to talk to the owners about it. She was very unpleasant, had jo desire to work out a compromise, in the end hung up on me. Last place I would ever stay.

My family started our U.P. vacation in Paradise, Michigan, and Curley's was convenient. We paid extra to have a room on the Lake Superior side of the building. The lake view was a bluff overlooking the water with orange safety fencing stretched over a gap in the wooden fence. There were chairs and a fire ring by the water as... More

We stayed here Friday July 17th, 2015. This was our second time here, previous was in July of 2012. We need a King size bed which limits our choices of where to stay a night at in an area such as this, the U.P., that is filled with double beds and queen beds and bunk beds. We were given Room...
