We stayed two nights in a first floor 2-bedroom suite, complete with direct access to the beach, a fireplace, kitchenette, living room and 2 full bathrooms. The hotel's units are investor-owned and are available for rent when the owners are not on the premises. The registration area is small, the staff friendly. The lobby is a large room that functions... More

I recently stayed at East Bay for a ladies weekend in Grand Marais. We found the suite to be a wonderful lakeside stay. It was beautiful to hear the lake all night and wake up to the beautiful sunrises. The little amenities like the popcorn and movies make it a perfect for filling in the time between hikes & restaurants... More

This vacation condo is right on Lake Superior. The beach and water are right out the door. We stayed in suite 206, a one bedroom. It was nicely appointed, nice furniture and very comfortable bed. The bedroom could have used room darkening blinds as the window faced east and it was total daylight very early. It was decorated nicely. Nice... More

My husband and I stayed at East Bay Suites during Fisherman's Picnic from 7/31/14 - 8/3/14. Our room (305) had a nice view of the bay, which we enjoyed from our balcony. Upon check-in we presented a gift card we had been given and we were told the internet wasn't working so they couldn't process our card. We were told... More

We would stay here again in a heart beat. It was well worth the money and had plenty of room for our family of 5. The only thing we didn't care for was the end time for a fire on the beach, 9pm. Was way too early, it was still light out. This is steps away from the best donuts,... More

The room was great, the sofa was a little worn but we were told the new sofas were on back order and would arrive soon, not a problem, still comfortable and clean. We walk to everything in town. Always love staying here.

My boyfriend and I have stayed at East Bay Suites a few times. We love going to Grand Marais and often plan spontaneous trips with little notice. East Bay has always accommodated us.

We stayed in unit 309 (2 couples) for 3 nights. That unit is a 2 bedroom deluxe suite, and it was every thing we hoped for. The suite was well supplied, and of course was right on the lake, and close to Grand Marais business district. It was clean when we arrived, like we hoped. The building was very quiet... More
