Stayed at hotel many years ago. Very happy too find out that hotel was still very clean, and had great service. Beds comfortable. Love sitting on the balcony and watching the freighters and birds. They have screens on the sliding doors so you can listen to the waves.

The bedroom and bathrooms were a good size and clean. There were limited TV channels, the remote barely worked and the picture resolution was bad. My husband went to the front desk to ask for help and they didn't know what to do about the remote or picture resolution. We were only there for an evening after being at Pictured...

We paid a little more for a patio room on Lake Superior, it was nice to watch a freighter go by and the evening was calm and beautiful. Unfortunately, we didn't sleep a wink the beds are very uncomfortable, it would have been nice to have the sitting room where the beds was in the room so you could view...

First, if it's available spend a few extra bucks for a room with a view! It is awesome and well worth cost. The hotel was clean, spacious and tastefully decorated.

We stayed here for one night. We found this choice to be clean, pleasant and had a nice breakfast included. This property is a step or 2 up from the local motels. Plus non-smoking and no pets. We were traveling with another couple and they were pleased with their stay as well. We would stay here again.

We have stayed here many times in the 16 years it has been open and each stay has been wonderful. The location is a big plus, as it is right on Lake Superior's Whitefish Bay in the small (very small) town of Paradise. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The entire hotel is meticulously clean. Some of...

Got into town about 6:45. The restaurant and bar in front of the hotel was closed. Nothing else was open other than the grocery store. Hotel was adequate. Room was clean but nothing special for the price. Hot breakfast was advertised on the sign out front but was not much different that your average budget hotel continental bar.

Great rooms. Very quit. The water is nice and hot. We walked to the beach. Very beautiful to view. Paradise is a wonderful little city to stay in. No pets allowed here for anyone who brings their furry babies along.
