Our kids were here from Utah and we decided to take a mini vaca. We stayed here at Curly, had the cabin. It was old and had not yet been updated to the condition of the others there. Although it was rustic, it was nice and very pleasant for what we needed. Grounds were well kept and was right on...

In July we rented here for 3 nights and only ended up staying for one. They would not refund even the last day. Our room was filthy. The bed spread was ripped and there was blood on the wall. Old t.v. was broken. Only 2 others staying at the time we were and they were put in the rooms next...

The room was tiny, the blinds were moldy, and they didn't even have a toilet paper holder. The baseboard area needs work too. There was no clock radio in the room and no instructions for how to use the phone or where any of the restaurants in town are located. Also, we only got TWO TV stations. The night ended...

Last minute reservation. Must call directly. My room was facing Lake Michigan. Older motel but room smelled clean when I walked in. Could use updating but there was nothing to report as unacceptable. Comfortable bed and pillows. Pet friendly.

We were happy to find a dog-friendly motel in Paradise. Our room was the smallest we've ever been in, the TV was barely functional, and our neighbors down the way seemed to be having a drunken pot party on the beach. That said, the view of Lake Superior was gorgeous and there was plenty of open space to walk the...

Room was adequate. Owners very nice. They even gave us some towels to wipe our bike down in the morning and told us to keep them. Fire pit on the lake was awesome. Value for amenities was excellent. Just don't expect to leave early. Checkout is not open early. Great place to stay.

Old, run down and dirty. Stained carpet and comforters. No deadbolt or chain on the door you just have to slam it hard enough to get it to lock. Holes in the curtains and broken blinds caked with dirt. Refused a refund even though I had hardly touched the room. (The replacement of one hand towel and wiping down the...

We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the rooms were. The staff was super nice, and there was a bonus of being pet friendly! We traveled with our dogs and were very comfortable. Town needs more food options. The view of Lake Superior is gorgeous!

This was a very basic motel, but we were traveling with a couple pets, so one person stayed here. The room was very basic, with a tub/shower in the bathroom. Our main goal was a place that would accept the dogs.

Not a paradise if you stay at Curlys. We stayed in room # 32 on the backside with a view of the lake. The room, ac unit, bedding and carpet smelled of musty and moldy odor. This is a very dated lodging and has not seen anywhere enough maintenance in the past few years. Our room exhibited black mold in...
