“Nicest hotel in Paradise.....Michigan.”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

What a nice place in the middle of a small town. You wouldn't know that this hotel is 12 years old. It's clean, up to date and you can tell that the staff cares about what they are doing. Beautiful views....great breakfast.....nice pool. The staff couldn't be nicer and more helpful. Had a room facing the lake.....sounded like the ocean. I highly recommend it.

Rooms were spacious and the balcony was excellent right on the lake. Kept windows and doors open all night and listened to the waves on beach. Pool was big and hardly anyone in it which was nice.
Got to walk on beach and sit in chairs already there for you. Very nice place.

Room Tip: choose a balcony room

This hotel is super clean, the staff is friendly, the view is magnificent and the little strip of beach along the Lake Superior shoreline and the adirondeck chairs are just perfect. The breakfast was great...not crowded and fancy, but adequate and the rooms were super clean and beds were comfy. It is a perfect distance from Taquehemenon Falls and super duper relaxing. On or 4 day UP roadtrip, this was our favorite motel.

This hotel was a nice surprise compared to some of our other accommodations in the UP. It was modern, clean, with nice amenities. Spacious rooms and nice balconies with a terrific view. Breakfast bar was average but above average coffee! The pool and hot tub area is nice and a decent size. The beach is small and the furniture is plastic and sad, however, the view makes up for that. Superior is so clean, so green, blue, teal, so...superior. Loved the area. Ventured the scenic gravel road to Grand Marais from here and found some secluded lakes and Lake Superior beaches. Do it! The isolation is so unique and the wilderness is so untamed. Breathtaking vistas. The Whitefish Point Bird Observatory is down the road and worth a visit. Bring binoculars and go early and you will the endangered Piping Plover along the shore, a short walk down a trail across from the parking lot. There is a restaurant across the parking lot and a couple others nearby. We will return.

Room Tip: Get a lake view room on the second floor!

Spent two nights there in July 2012. It was an outstanding place to stay. Had a second floor mini-suite, the view from the balcony was beautiful. Very clean, well maintained property. A diamond in the small town of Paradise. Also, very motorcycle friendly, which was a welcome surprise. I'll stay there again when in the area.

Room Tip: Ask for a lakeside balcony room, you can't beat the view, especially at sunrise.

Don't believe any other review your read on Paradise area hotels. This is the only place to stay. It's well maintained, clean, and conveniently located. Pay the little extra and get a ground level room that faces the beach. My kids loved the beach and the pool here. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Get a ground level room facing the beach.

This hotel is good hotel with spacious rooms directly on the lakefront. Our room(suite) had a fridge, macrowave and plenty of room. But not a King bed- just one Queen bed. That was really a pity!
The free breakfast was oké; there were not enough tables and chairs to seat everybody. We had to take te food up to our room.

Room Tip: You have to have a lakeview room!
