This was our second visit to what is becoming our favorite getaway location. My wife and I came up with friends for our first emptynester Christmas. We had a one bedroom suite (condo) that faced Lake Superior 20 feet from our door. The rooms are very nicely furnished, with furnishings clean and in very good condition. Winter is the gem... More

We can't wait for your next visit, either! It can be bittersweet when Christmas traditions change; thank you for letting East Bay Suites be part of your first Christmas with an empty nest. We're thrilled that you enjoyed everything about your stay. Perhaps a new tradition has started? More

A super relaxing pre-holidays weekend in Grand Marais at a great in town hotel right on Lake Superior. Walked to shops downtown and co-op is right next door which is super convenient. Hotel staff (Katelyn, Beth) all provided nice service touch points including afternoon popcorn with toppings bar, coffee in the lobby. Just what we and our dog needed to... More

This was our second stay at East Bay Suites. This time we got a deluxe business room instead of a suite. (On-line email special just at the end of the season.) It was the perfect size for our long weekend, and the small kitchenette offered everything, and more, than we needed. The bed was very comfortable, and everything was clean... More

We had a one bedroom condo that had a balcony overlooking the lake. It is hard to beat the view! So nice. The room was great too. Very nice fireplace on the cold nights, fairly well equipped kitchen ( could have used another fry pan and baking dish, but not the end of the world) and plenty of space in... More

We stayed in room 307 - a 1 bedroom suite on the third floor with a fabulous view of Lake superior. The suite was much bigger than we expected and very comfortable for our family of 4. We had the kids in the bedroom and my husband and I slept on the sofa bed - a good quality sofa bed... More

Awesome stay with Amazing views right on Lake Superior. It was so nice to hike with our dog- nightly fires in the fireplace, and leave the windows open to listen to the waves crash. Great hiking- angry trout is a must, and good food at the gun flint tavern as well. Great place to stay in Grand Marais.

The suites have no floor covering apart from a faded,stained,frayed rug. The floor is scratched by the chairs which grate, and sound horrible, especially if you are on the ground floor .
