We enjoyed our two night stay here, and swam in the pool with other families a couple times. Room was clean and spacious and easily accommodated our family of four. Location was convenient to the local tourist spots. We would have liked to know that the beach was closed before we arrived, even via the website, so we could have... More

Right on the shore of Lake Superior with an incredible view. Very handy to Whitefish Point and Tahquamenon Falls. Friendly staff and a beautiful lounge area. The hot breakfast and the restaurant are very nice.

This hotel is an excellent location for tourists to visit the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point and Tahquamenon Falls a few miles to the west on Route 123. The Magnuson is located in Paradise, MI, but there is not much there besides the hotel, a small grocery store, a bakery/cafe, and a small seafood restaurant. A place called... More

Clean, bright, welcoming, with one of the best views on the planet. Very well located for travels around the area. Also has a good restaurant in walking distance, that is just across the parking lot, though it's crowded, and there's often waiting time. Don't know what else to say. For the past few years, I've thought of it as one... More

Great views and front desk help, nice rooms and a good breakfast add up to a surprisingly pleasant stay in the UP. There is a great gastropub just steps from the hotel lobby, which is fortunate because there are very few other options for food in this remote area.

Friendly staff. Your standard continental breakfast with pancake maker, eggs, and sausage patties. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate available 24 hours. Awesome view of Whitefish Bay, freighters, and sunrises from your balcony. Enjoyed the pool, sauna, and hot tub. Large clean bathroom. Comfortable beds. Few restaurants nearby, but they have excellent homemade food.

Stayed here on a whim while passing through. Clean room and fast wifi. There is laundry facilities, 2 washers and 2 dryers. You can buy soap for $1 at front desk. The sunrise over the lake was pretty cool. There is a pool, hot tub, and sauna. The hotel is about a 15 min drive from Tahquamenon Falls SP

Based on other reviews, we gathered this was the best hotel in the area. We had no major complaints, but we weren't particularly impressed. It seemed relatively clean. Breakfast left much to be desired.
