Looking for somewhere late one evening for a visit to the falls the next day. Fast check-in with friendly staff, no breakfast incl except donuts n coffee. Room clean and spacious. No elevator or fridge in room. Old noisy A/C but it was quiet and cool outside so an open window worked instead. Price a bit high.

Decided to head up to Paradise on a Saturday afternoon and got 1 of the last rooms. Motel was clean and OK but walls apparently are thin cause I heard everything people in the next room said. But it was right in the middle of town so it was OK.

This was a nice stay. I thought it was comparable to every other facility we had stayed, but this site was priced high compared same type sites in the U. P. The room was nice, clean and satisfactory. continental breakfast, which was fine. I was happy with site other than the higher cost, but there isn't too many accommodations in... More

Clean and Basic - advantage: It was open. No coffee maker, fridge or blow dryer. Basic room. Late in season so few choices. OK for one night to sleep. 11 miles from Whitefish Pointe Lighthose Complex and on the way to Tahquamenon Falls.

This place charges too much for what you get, $100/nite, said continental breakfast which was "packaged rolls", high fat, coffee was not ready at 6:00 am as advertised. Clerk checking in was sloppy, unfriendly. No frig in room or microwave.

Way over priced. Staff very snotty, dressed poorly and didn't really care if they sold the room or not. The continental breakfast consists of donuts that were wrapped and when you pulled the wrapper off the frosting came off with it, the coffee was horrible, nothing more for breakfast. The tv was 19 inch. The bathtub felt like it was... More

We spent several nights here at the beginning of September 2013 and were very pleased--large, clean and comfortable room with refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom had a two-person Jacuzzi which was nice. Pay washing machine and dryer were very convenient. Close to Whitefish Point and Tahquamenon Falls. We would definitely stay here again.

We were on a motorcycle trip and stayed in Paradise because it is about 10 miles from Tahquamenon Falls. The hotel is older but it was clean. The Lodge Bar and Grill is directly across the street where you can eat; breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Inn provides rolls and coffee in the morning. There is a gas station right... More
