Clean and affordable in Paradise?

Clean and affordable in Paradise?

We're headed up to the UP this summer, and want to spend a couple of nights in the Paradise area. Any recommendations for accommodations? There are eight of us, two couples, two singles, and two kids. We saw there is a house available at Curley's, but how is it for cleanliness? Cabins would be fun, but it is so hard without having seen them ahead of time. Our only requirement is that we have one tall person who wants at least a queen-size bed. We are debating the Best Western, but cabins sound more fun.

Thanks for your help!

Paradise hotels are very high priced

Consider Newberry, still fairly close to the T Falls

We stayed at Curley's last year without any problems. We stayed on the beach-view side of the L-shaped motel that shields the cabins from the road. We found the motel room to be relatively clean. The cabins are sprinkled here and there on the property--it would be hard to pick one sight unseen. But Curley's has a good reputation in the town, so you should be all right.

We haven't stayed in the Best Western, but it is probably the newest place in town and should be fine.

Both have good beaches, but Curley's is more centrally located for walking around town.

For me, I'd try to get beachside motel rooms at Curley's. I don't remember if there were queen beds, but the room we had was oversized--it had an extra area with a small fridge. You'll still be able to use the barbeques and have camp fires at night.

Have fun,

Re: beaches...

How cold is the water up there? Do little icebergs float by or what?
