Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Magnuson, well appointed room, very friendly and helpful staff, very clean and "superior setting." Will return next year, for sure. Visiting this hotel had become an annual event.

This place was beautiful! Very clean hotel with friendly staff. Paid a little more to be facing Lake Superior, but so worth the money. The room had a cute little balcony that we enjoyed with a couple beers as the sun went down. You could see the lights from the ships in the distance. Oh what a sunrise we got... More

We stayed for one night. The staff was friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel backed to the Lake Superior and we were able to enjoy walking by the lake. It was worth paying for a lake view room. We sat on the balcony of our room and enjoyed peacefully watching the sunset and sunrise on Lake Superior.... More

Great place! Beautiful setting. Clean. Friendly staff. Try to get a room facing Lake Superior. Easy drive to tahquanemon Falls and Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum. The pool looked well kept and maintained but we did not partake in a dip.

I have nothing bad to say about this place. The staff was amazing. The pool is great, has hot tub and sauna. The lake view is amazing. Definitely pay extra for the lake view. My son accidentally left his iPad in the room and they called to let us know (we drove back to get it). Just a wonderful place... More

We have stayed at a different hotel every night for a week traveling through the UP. The grand hotel is a very nice hotel. The rooms are very clean. The lobby is very clean. The breakfast we loved because they have a fun pancake conveyor. Made my morning. There is also eggs, sausage, bagels, cereal, if you aren't as enthralled... More

First things first: Paradise is a tiny town located on the shores of Lake Superior. It's well-situated for a visit to Tauquamenon Falls State Park, the Shipwreck Museum, and Whitefish Point. Otherwise, it's pretty remote, and definitely not the most interesting town on the UP. Dining is limited, and so are lodging opportunities. With that said, the Magnuson Grand Hotel... More

Our first time to the Upper Peninsula, passed very few cars, saw no other people for almost two hours, then turned into this busy, wonderful hotel! Our room had a balcony overlooking majestic Lake Supirior. The weather was so cool, we slept with the balcony door opened. The desk clerk was so friendly and helpful regarding meals and sights. We...

We were in Paradise for the Great Lakes Relay. The first leg of the race starts at 6 am, which meant that we had to be up by 4:45. To accommodate the runners, the staff had breakfast prepared for us by 4:30 am! We couldn't ask for better service. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The room was clean... More
