We stayed here on a 7 day trip around the UP. The area is remote so there aren't very many hotels in the area. This hotel was nicer then we expected! From the looks of the other hotels this hotel seems to be the nicest in the area. It is worth the extra money. It was pouring down rain when... More

Clean, friendly service, and nice views. They offer all the amenities including breakfast, wifi, pool, and sauna. The staff was very friendly and helpful in a tough situation. If you go to Paradise this is the only hotel you should stay in.

This Hotel is the nicest place to stay in Paradise. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is very clean, and nicely decorated. Our waterfront room had a balcony, and wonderful view. We went there with our daughter and son-in-law, and wished we could have stayed another night. It was their first visit to Paradise, and they loved the... More

Room was decent. Bed was fine. The view on the small beach at sunrise was spectacular. The grounds are very nice around the east side. Close to the Falls, the shipwreck museum, and BROWNS FISH HOUSE < Don't let the exterior put you off, this place is special.

Called front desk and asked them to close fire doors. Person on duty said they usually kept them open but if I wanted they would close them. When I checked later just before I went to bed they were still propped open. I removed the prop myself and took the prop back to my room.

Knowing that Paradise was a remote location and had few options as far as lodging and dining, we were pleasantly surprised with the quality of Magnuson Grand Hotel Lakefront. Upon entering the hotel we were greeted by a large double sided fire place which are backed by a wall of picture windows overlooking Lake Superior. The view is just spectacular.... More

The name of the town may be Paradise, but you are a long way from anything. Still, the hotel Magnuson was very nice. To ask for anything more for such a remote place would be asking too much. Faint praise, yes, but praise nevertheless. The rooms were clean and roomy, the breakfast buffet was fine, the staff was friendly and... More

I don't think you will get anything better than this in Paradise. We stayed on the first floor that has a door opening to the outside and walk out to the beach. This hotel is very much like a Holiday Inn Express. The staff was very friendly too which made the stay so much more comfortable. Pool was colder than... More

This hotel has a spectacular location right on Whitefish Bay! We had two suites on the third floor. While the decor is a bit dated - it is extremely clean and very comfortable! My husband and I remarked that we have never stayed in such an immaculate property - and we have stayed in many hotels. The beds were comfy,... More

This gem of a hotel sits right on Whitefish Bay. If you get a room facing the bay you are in for an amazing view! I recommend a bay view room on the second floor. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We were treated to a wonderful moon rise over the bay as... More
