We stayed here 2 nights and had a junior suite lake view room, with a balcony. It was very pretty, clean and spacious. This is a good place to stay to see Whitefish Point and the Falls. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. I thought the breakfast was pretty average, so we went out the second morning.

Our stay here was enjoyable in every way that you could possibly expect. The counter staff was very friendly in all aspects of their job. The lakefront view if you option for that is worth the price alone. Rooms are spacious and very well kept. Coffee and Lemonade available in the lobby at any time. Needing utensils for pizza we...

Stayed here to attend an owl-banding program at Whitefish Point and were very pleased, from the greeting at the front desk throughout the stay. The room was just as promised with a beautiful view of Lake Superior, quiet, very clean with nice furnishings and a large bathroom. We didn’t use the pool but once there I wished I had brought...

This place has a great location on the water and has all of the basics to be a real nice hotel. It needs some care both inside and outside. It has no restaurant or bar but it is really the best option in Paradise. The bay side room was $150 per night on Sunday but it was large and neat...

Our room was on the entrance floor which is the sencond floor. It was clean and the view was nice. The sun rises were beautiful. The places to eat in the area are limited but the restaurant in walking distance of the hotel had nice food. The balconies are open (can see many other balconies) so there is little privacy...

Not that its a bad place. Its perfectly fine. Just double the price of comparable places. They have just added a few window dressings. Substandard baths. Limited options for eating so be prepared for LONG wait. My recomendation is keep driving. Sorry.

We enjoyed our recent two-night stay at this hotel. Our room was very adequate. We enjoyed the views of Lake Superior, especially the beautiful sunrises at breakfast. This hotel has a large pool and hot tub area. While we didn't use it, it looked very inviting--great place for kids to work off some energy. The front desk staff was very...

A very pleasant and quiet place to stay. The views over Whitefish Bay were wonderful: beautiful water, brilliant stars and a stunning sunrise. Aside from these, the room was very comfortable and clean. The staff was very helpful, from the moment we called about a room, to giving advice about the area and restaurants, to when we departed. I am...

There's not a lot of hotels in the area, and this one sits right on Lake Superior between Whitefish Point and Tahquamenon Falls. We enjoyed listening to the water as we un-winded for the evening and the beautiful sunrise from are balcony in the morning. Room was comfortable and clean. There is a sauna in the pool area and a...
