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...

This is one of the worst places I have ever stayed in. We checked into our room at about 6:00 p.m. on Wed. July 8th and took a quick look at the room as we had to leave immediately for photography at Crisp Point Lighthouse. We returned around 11:30 p.m. and started unloading the car. Once unloaded we were having... More

We stayed at Curley's a few years ago when my husband took me to Michigan to visit some of his favorite childhood haunts. He was amazed that this motel still existed and it was a nice trip down memory lane for him, full of 50's atmosphere. There is nothing trendy or even modern about Curley's. It is a basic, old-school... More

Me and my family went here as a nice family vacation. But when we stayed in this motel (Building #5) we were greeted with a unpleasant owl painting above the mantle, to add to the creepiness the entire place was outdated, along with a entire drawer of knifes, and that's it. In the middle of the night we were awoken... More

I enjoyed my stay at Curley's Paradise Motel. This was a last minute decision to spend the night in Paradise so that I would have more time for hiking at the falls and seeing Whitefish Point. It was the first motel I saw and it looked ok so I figured I would take a chance. The lady at the front... More

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
