Very clean, exceptionally helpful and genuinely friendly front desk staff, beautiful views on the lake side, one of the best restaurants in the U.P. is right across the parking lot and I'll second another reviewer, the breakfast lady makes you feel right at home. The breakfast is very good (and free!) and coffee, tea and water are always available. This... More

Great Hotel, very clean, polite people but the best thing is the breakfast lady, she made us feel at home. :) loved having breakfast looking at Lake Superior it was beautiful. Location is relatively close to the area attractions.

When I walked into my 3rd floor, 1-queen bed lakefront suite and saw the light waves of Whitefish Bay seemingly lapping at my balcony, I thought I was in heaven! That first impression remained with me, for I felt safe, cared-for, and at-home. The room was immaculately clean and quiet during my entire 5-night stay. The hot breakfast was plentiful... More

If your heading into the upper parts of Michigan this is by far the best hotel. The staff was extremely friendly. They were very professional. They were knowledgeable about the area. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. They were nicely decorated. We had a beautiful view of the lake. It's located close to Tequamanen Falls.

We had a great night at the Magnuson. They served a good breakfast. I really liked the pancake maker. The pool area had too much chlorine for me so I wasn't able to use it. Loved the view from the balcony.

Just 'exploring' the UP & decided to go to Paradise! I thought it was so cool how there was one traffic light, one gas station etc. Not the city! So beautiful. We saw a person working at one place, later at another! Sad we had to leave though...so we're going back again!

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

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
