The rooms are more than we expected! Staff was wonderful and the view's were outstanding! We went for a long weekend with our sleds. Everyone was helpful and it was a very quiet stay considering they were almost sold out!

This is a really nice hotel -- a great choice -- especially for the remote location where it is. While I was at the registration desk, I commented something like ....... "you must have just opened in the last year or two, it looks and smells really new." And then the desk person told me that they had been there for 11 years. So that tells you all you need to know about the appearance and maintenance there.

We had the far end room (opposite the lobby end) on the second floor, right by the building entrance, and on the lake side with a balcony. A perfect location. I recommend you spend an extra $20 or so for a balcony view of Lake Superior -- it is definitely worth it.

The room itself was very large and clean, and so was the bathroom. Very nice breakfast area also. We were really pleased, and wished we would/could have stayed a second night.

There are two great attractions in the area: (1) Tahquamenon Falls (beautiful), and the brewpub there is very good also, and (2) the Whitefish Point complex with the lighthouse, Shipwreck Museum, etc.

We should also mention that the best place in Paradise to eat is Brown's Fish House, about a mile west of town. It's both a restaurant and a fish market. It's only open when owner Buddy Brown, a commercial fisherman, has fresh fish from Lake Superior. The interior is pleasant, with nifty paintings of local fishing boats. The whitefish comes fried or broiled. Not a fancy place (don't judge it by the outside) but really good whitefish on the inside. It was a busy place the evening that we were there in July 2009.

We stayed at this Best Western while visiting Tahquammenon Falls. The room was very comfortable, free internet access (which was great- since we had no cell phone service!) and the front desk clerk that evening went out of his way to make us feel welcome and cared for. I would definitely stay there again...and probably will in the next couple weeks!

Very clean hotel. Very clean, large bathroom, in room. Had patio with lake view. Although there is no beach, the water came right up to the steps that led to the "beach". Great view of Lake Superior.

Breakfast area very cramped and could use some blinds, great view but on a sunny morning it is blinding. OK pool. A bit expensive for what it was, but it is the nicest place in the area. Fairly remote location. No groceries to speak of.

Paradise Pizza across the street, behind the gas station (tiny building) is quite good!

We stayed at the Best Western in Paradise during a visit to the falls and a first visit to Lake Superior. The people working at the hotel were very friendly and welcoming. The indoor pool, spa and sauna were a great way to relax after hiking. Breakfast was good but finding a seat was a little difficult, very busy. Room was typical chain hotel that was clean and quiet. If in the area again would definitely revisit the Best Western.
