One of the best hotels we stayed at on our circle tour. Make a reservation to get the lakeside. The rooms were spacious, great beds, knowledgeable and helpful staff, best hotel in the area and a great breakfast in the morning. You are right on the lake so the views are incredible.

I'm not sure what else to say that hasn't already been said. Best hotel of our 10 day trip to the UP. Nearby is the Shipwreck Museum and Whitefish Point. Breakfast here was good, staff was terrific, beds, pillows, and rooms exceptional for what we paid. Besides the great room the views were wonderful. I just wished we'd had a... More

This hotel almost doesn't seem to belong here. Paradise is rural Upper Peninsula Michigan, where country stores and family style fish diners predominate. This is a high class hotel, not New York 5-star, but,in this place, many cuts above most alternatives. It has an indoor pool and spa, balconies that overlook Lake Superior (try to wake up long enough to... More

The Magnuson is directly on Lake Superior, facing due east. The sunrise is spectacular and we were there for the super harvest gold full moon and it was really memorable. The rooms are spotless. Reception was excellent. The morning breakfast met our expectations. The Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum and Whitefish Bay Lighthouse are about 20 minutes up the road and... More

The Magnuson is located just steps away from beautiful Lake Superior. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and spacious. The views of Lake Superior are breathtaking. Tahquamenon Falls and the Shipwreck Museum are must-sees and are an easy drive from the hotel. We enjoyed the hotel's indoor pool and daily breakfast. Best accommodations in the area.

Stayed in a lake front room at the Magnuson Grand. The hotel was clean and nicely run. The pool area was very nice. The rooms were nothing special. Breakfast was nice. I felt that the room was to expensive for the lack of quality. A room the previous night in saint ignace was 30.00 per night cheaper and much nicer.

We stayed here one night during a road trip. Staff is very nice and accommodating. Breakfast was good and the place is very clean. Nice pool and hottub area. A nice perk is the sauna. Get a lake view. It's beautiful to wake up and look at that sunrise.

This is by far the best place to stay near Tahquamenon Falls State Park in northern Michigan. There is not much choice at all in the tiny town of Paradise and this place certainly exceeded our expectations. The hotel is located on the west shore of Whitefish Bay and has a small sandy private beach. The rooms are very modern,... More
