First, if it's available spend a few extra bucks for a room with a view! It is awesome and well worth cost. The hotel was clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. Shirley had our paperwork ready and was polite and professional for our check-in. Breakfast was typical for a hotel hot breakfast nothing outstanding and nothing of concern either. Cost was... More

We stayed here for one night. We found this choice to be clean, pleasant and had a nice breakfast included. This property is a step or 2 up from the local motels. Plus non-smoking and no pets. We were traveling with another couple and they were pleased with their stay as well. We would stay here again.

We have stayed here many times in the 16 years it has been open and each stay has been wonderful. The location is a big plus, as it is right on Lake Superior's Whitefish Bay in the small (very small) town of Paradise. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The entire hotel is meticulously clean. Some of... More

Got into town about 6:45. The restaurant and bar in front of the hotel was closed. Nothing else was open other than the grocery store. Hotel was adequate. Room was clean but nothing special for the price. Hot breakfast was advertised on the sign out front but was not much different that your average budget hotel continental bar.

Great rooms. Very quit. The water is nice and hot. We walked to the beach. Very beautiful to view. Paradise is a wonderful little city to stay in. No pets allowed here for anyone who brings their furry babies along.

you just can not beat the view from your lakeside room here, the sunrise was spectacular and there wasn't any noise to contend with from other rooms. very convenient to the Falls and Camp 33 restaurant. Friendly staff which exemplifies the people of the U.P., breakfast was your usual fare but it worked.

Extremely clean, friendly staff, good breakfast. Great view. I would give it 5 stars if you could get down to the water but understand that's an investment they would probably loose on and have no control over. Still the view was great! If we go back up north we would stay here and probably use this as our central point... More
