The room we had was small with one bed but a view of the Lake. We have stayed in many motels with much better rooms and even better views for half what this room was. For that price we expected much more including at least a continental breakfast. We were extremely disappointed. Fortunately we found other places with much better... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at the East Bay Suites! The views of Lake Superior are breathtaking. It was very nice to have a washer and dryer in our room and were able to check out movies to watch in room. Great place to stay and would definitely stay here again!!!

Customer service when I called to make my reservation was excellent, as was the check-in process. We had a great room on the second floor. The room has in-floor heat, which is really nice, no hot or cold spots and a nice continuous temp. An excellent location and beautiful, comfortable place to stay. Excellent high-quality soaps shampoo, etc.

First the pros: This hotel is located right on the edge of the lake and within walking distance of downtown. The rocky beach in front of the hotel is perfect for kids to play and older kids have just a short jaunt down the beach to do some fun rock climbing out on the point and by the light house.... More

East Bay is ideally located between the edge of the lake and downtown. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. The kitchen has all the utensils and dishes you will need. We had a walk-out patio, which I loved, but the upstairs rooms have decks. The livingroom area is not as big as I expected from the pictures online, but... More

We've stayed at East Bay twice now, both times in May for our anniversary. We will continue to come back to East Bay because the condos are great, the location is awesome, and the staff is amazing! I highly recommend East Bay to anyone looking for a long stay or even just for a couple of nights.
