My husband and I stayed at East Bay with our Dog, and reserved the pooch package & stayed 2 nights (wish we could've stayed much longer) I called and spoke with a lovely gentleman 'Art'.... he was so friendly and helpful, such great customer service during my phone call.... made me even more excited to get there. We were splurging...

We would stay here again in a heart beat. It was well worth the money and had plenty of room for our family of 5. The only thing we didn't care for was the end time for a fire on the beach, 9pm. Was way too early, it was still light out. This is steps away from the best donuts,...

The room was great, the sofa was a little worn but we were told the new sofas were on back order and would arrive soon, not a problem, still comfortable and clean. We walk to everything in town. Always love staying here.

Thank you for sharing your experiences at East Bay Suites! We love that we’re within walking distance of the great shops and dining in Grand Marais, while still offering excellent views of the lake from our property. We just had two more sofas switched out this week. Chances are you’ll get to experience one of these new sofas during your...

My boyfriend and I have stayed at East Bay Suites a few times. We love going to Grand Marais and often plan spontaneous trips with little notice. East Bay has always accommodated us. The last time we went up, we decided to save a few bucks and stayed at the Best Western - HUGE mistake. Nowhere near as nice as...

We stayed in unit 309 (2 couples) for 3 nights. That unit is a 2 bedroom deluxe suite, and it was every thing we hoped for. The suite was well supplied, and of course was right on the lake, and close to Grand Marais business district. It was clean when we arrived, like we hoped. The building was very quiet...

We hope you also took advantage of the other amenities we offer, such as DVD rentals and beach bonfires with...

We stay at East Bay Suites whenever we come to Grand Marais--at least once a year. It is very pet friendly with amazing views of Lake Superior. We prefer being on the third floor, for best views and no noise from footsteps above us. During our most recent visit, we found no screens on the patio door and windows. Management...

Thank you for sharing your recent experience at East Bay Suites. We’re happy to hear that your whole family enjoys our location and accommodations time and again!

As we discussed, it is a temporary process that will improve the exterior conditions of our building. The good...

Great views, comfortable bed, but poor housekeeping, We didn't expect we would need to remake the bed everyday after the maid's attempt. The maids didn't clean the floors either and clean towels were at a minimum. Only real complaint we had. The condo was nice, the grounds were well kept, and it was not overrun by kids. Only problem was...

Mid-week escape with family to celebrate husband's 50th birthday. Booked a 3 bedroom corner suite with a view of lake and Artist's Point (to accommodate 3 large teenage boys). I was so disappointed to find our suite was the 'back' corner and only had a 'partial' view of the lake (mostly looked over the back of grand marais). The room...

We truly appreciate that you took the time to review your visit! We understand our 3 bedrooms are a little quirky being on the corner. While the layout has been great for larger groups, some individuals do miss the full lake views from the unit (especially in the winter when the balcony is not really an option). We’re grateful that...
