My husband and I were very happy with the Magnuson Grand in Paradise. The hotel was very clean, well appointed and the staff was exceptionally helpful courteous. We had a beautiful view from the third floor. If I ever got up to Paradise again, I would definitely stay here.

Traveled in the UP in early June. A bit worried about what we might find in the Paradise area. Very pleasantly surprised to find this oasis in the middle of the vast forest of the UP. Property featured an excellent hot breakfast, spacious and clean rooms with a view, and indoor pool with hot tub. Good food was located a... More

The front desk staff was very kind and pleasant talk to. The room was very much comfortable. To have a room with a private balcony was a plus. Everything is in order, clean, and tidy. I appreciate that very much.

The hotel was very nice. The breakfast was hot and acceptable. The view of the lake from the back yard area was very nice. The room was comfortable. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. We had a nice stay.

A different picture of the hotel should be used because it doesn't look like that any more. The sandy beach has been completely washed away and the wooden stairway is gone at the bottom, so you can't even get to the water and wade in the shallows (we tried). I understand Mother Nature washed the beach away years ago, but... More

Two thumbs up for this hotel. I love to visit state parks and play during the day but I like accommodations that cater to comfortable beds with crisp clean sheets, hot cooked breakfast, and some wifi!! This place is close to the falls. I will definitely stay here again. The staff is friendly and efficient. Thank you!!

Great find in the eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan, overlooking Lake Superior. Beach access, although the water is too cold to swim in. There is a nice indoor pool and sauna to make up for the cold lake though. Rooms are clean and large and the staff is friendly. 15 minutes from the Shipwreck Museum, 45 minutes to Sault Ste... More

Ask for a lake view room; the view was breathtaking. The spa/pool/sauna were a welcome treat after being out hiking all day. Rooms did not have fridge or microwave, but I would recommend bringing food with. Dining was very limited in Paradise.

Nicest hotel in Paradise, Michigan and located right on the bay and just across the street from the snowmobile trail. Laurie from customer service was amazing and helped me get a second night, due to a cancellation, as my original reservation only allowed for one night. The staff coordinated parking to ensure they had room for my truck and snowmobile... More
