Pros: - Extremely clean, and I am very fussy! - Friendly staff! - Nice breakfast! - By far, nicest hotel in the area! Cons: - Pool area could use a little paint and maintenance, but I know those are hard to keep up, and I have seen far worse. - Cable was fuzzy, but we certainly didn't go there to... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review on tripadvisor. I really appreciate your comments and will share them with the appropriate departments. We are planning on doing some major maintenance updates in the pool area during our spring shut down this year. The extreme cold this year caused a lot more condensation which caused the plaster to... More

Convenient location. Hotel provides parking for snowmobiles and your trailer. They even have outlets for diesel trucks. The rooms are a standard double bed set up. Some rooms have refrigerators. We always get the rooms looking over the parking lot. They have new linens and the manager says they will be installing new carpet in March. The pool, hot tub... More

Magnuson Grand Hotel is a GREAT place to stay on a snowmobile Trip. Tim at the front desk is AWESOME. They are very accommodating. The rooms are extremely clean. Located extremely close to the trail head. This is the only place I will stay in the UP! We have been there 5 times this year, and have reservations for 2... More

We booked this hotel due to the close access to the snowmobile trails. When making my reservations, Tim and Valerie were outstanding! It was a very busy week end, and we lucky to get the Queen Suite. It was SuperBowl weekend, and the front desk sent maintenance to the rooms to make sure the cables were secure on the TV's.... More

Upon arrival the front desk staff was very helpful. They answered all of our questions about local attractions and restaurants and were very courteous. The lakefront room was very clean and the view was spectacular.

Great place to stay, access to trails directly across the street. Hot Tub/Sauna/Pool were a bonus. Good parking for trailers. Great view of Lake Superior. Would definitely stay here again. Breakfast buffet average.

Though it is a nice hotel, a bit pricey for being in Paradise. Staff was VERY nice/friendly, answering questions. For snowmobilers, they had trail updates, snow forecast, etc. Parking not bad. Breakfast was nice-had a cool pancake maker that had pancakes roll off a conveyor belt with a push of a button. Coffee, water available all day. Trail access across... More

We stayed one night in September, after driving from the beautiful Pictured Rocks and the Tahquamenon Falls State Park areas. Wonderful fall folliage along the lake! The hotel is very nice, with clean, comfortable rooms and a nice breakfast. WiFi worked well too.
