This lovely property is ideally located on Lake Superior. Attentive staff and comfortable rooms make it a wonderful destination. Extras like baskets to make smores on the lake (yes, with firewood), complimentary bike rentals with helmets, swim passes to the local pool all make it an ideal place to stay in picturesque Grand Marais. We'd recommend this place for anyone.

We thought the hotel was great and really enjoyed our stay. However after we had left we received a phone call and was charged $30 for a "phone charger" that was not working in our room. After trying to explain that we did not use the phone and had no clue where the phone was located in the room, they... More

We love this place - this was our second stay here. The rooms are clean and spacious. Everything you need is provided... coffee for the coffeemaker, detergent for the washer, CDs for the CD player, etc. It's right on the water... when you look out the window (we were on the 2nd floor) you don't see anything but lake, sky...

This resort offers excellent rooms, a beautiful setting on Lake Superior in downtown Grand Marais and reasonable rates. The suites have separated rooms and a kitchenette with all one needs to make meals during a vacation. The only strike against this resort is that they charge a high nightly fee to bring a pet. A more pet-friendly charge would make... More

This was our fourth time staying at the East Bay Suites and we are never disappointed. The property was full for our stay but you never would have known it. There's nothing better than falling asleep in the light of the fireplace, smelling the wood-smoke from the bonfires on the beach and listening to the waves crashing on the shore.... More

This hotel is great!! Clean, modern, the staff was great. It's right on Lake Superior, with amazing views. It's walking distance to the downtown area. Great shops and restaurants! We stayed in a studio which was perfect for 2. It had a small kitchen, comfy bed and a fireplace. We loved it and they gave us a great military discount!!!!!

Grand Marais is beautiful with many options for relaxing or exerting oneself. East Bay is convenient and provides for a spot to walk to restaurants or shops and still enjoy the beauty of Lake Superior and the sound of waves. The suites are large and comfortable. Great get away for family or a group of friends.

We have stayed there before and have had somewhat comfortable lodging. This time it was completely unacceptable. The bedroom and bathroom (toilet) were connected with no wall. There was no internet connection nor cell phone service. We had asked for and paid for a one bedroom suite. Who would think that you would have to ask for a wall, (or... More

Location Great, Food and Shopping Great. Rooms are really really awesome. We stayed here in combination with a Lutsen ski trip. We chose to drive a ways to the ski resort in order to enjoy the wonderful town of Grand Marais. Free shuttle to ski resort. This is our 4th year in a row on a ski trip in the... More

This was my second stay at East Bay and it is by far the best place to stay on the North Shore. Grand Marais is an adorable town with great dive restaurants and lots to do in every season. Both the 1 and 2 bedroom units that I have stayed in are cozy and clean, nicely decorated, have huge comfy... More
