I spent the night there on 10/9/2014 with my husband, 6 month old baby and sister in law. As someone who is use to city living and really nice hotels, I was nervous about we would find this far north in the "wilderness". Boy was I pleasantly surprised!! This hotel was great! We had a first floor room and could... More

A very nice and clean hotel. A very nice continental breakfast, clean and well maintained rooms. A quiet out of the way place for couples, families, and those that love the outdoors. Many things to see near by, such as Whitefish Point, and the Tahquamenon Falls State Park.

We stayed here for one night after visiting the Shipwreck Museum and Taqaumenon Falls and were very satisfied. The property looks new. The public areas as well as our room were spotless. Our room was nicely decorated and had a terrace that opened out right onto a lawn that fronted Lake Superior. There are steps down to the water. The... More

Very difficult to find a place like this "up north." Clean, friendly staff, and a beautiful view! Really lives up to the location of Paradise! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! A very nice continental breakfast included with hot entrees as well.

Enjoyed staying there. Had a lake view room, balcony with seating for a nice place to watch the waves. Staff was attentive and friendly, served a good breakfast, and the room was comfortable. My husband had stayed here previously, and had a good experience.

We really enjoyed the hotel. It was clean and the staff was very friendly. Normally we don't eat too early in the morning but we decided to go down to the lobby for breakfast and we were pretty surprised. They had a pretty large spread and also had an employee down there refreshing the coffee and making more food so... More

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
