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

We stayed in a lake view room and it was nearly perfect! The rooms are very large and clean. The hotel was quiet even though it was fully booked which made the stay that much better. The location right on the water was incredibly peaceful and the views were great. The bed was not the best and neither was the... More

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
