Our 2nd visit to East Bay Suites, we enjoy this little wonderful town. All though the weather was chilly it was still perfect. Full kitchen and a gorgeous view to Lake Superior. Waking to the crashing waves totally rocks, great way to start any day !

We love your version of vacation! Our suites have what you need to enjoy some relaxing wave-watching; and our downtown location makes it easy to go out for some excitement. Thank you for letting us be your getaway destination.

East Bay Suites was clean and very comfortable. Customer service was also very good. It was close to the ski resort and we did not have to drive very far. Restaurants were also in close proximity. We enjoyed our stay here.

This was our first visit to East Bay Suites- although we often come up from Duluth to camp around the area in Grand Marais. We traveled up here for a one-night getaway and wished we had more time. The hotel was quiet and the staff was very polite. The hotel room was amazing- a fireplace, large, comfortable bed, a closet...

I really enjoyed this hotel. My partner and I travelled to Grand Marais for a one night getaway. The hotel was very cozy and welcoming. The room with the fireplace was really relaxing and put us at peace. The hotel has thought of all of the little details, from DVD and Video games to borrow, chessboards, and real candles and...

This was our second visit to what is becoming our favorite getaway location. My wife and I came up with friends for our first emptynester Christmas. We had a one bedroom suite (condo) that faced Lake Superior 20 feet from our door. The rooms are very nicely furnished, with furnishings clean and in very good condition. Winter is the gem...

A super relaxing pre-holidays weekend in Grand Marais at a great in town hotel right on Lake Superior. Walked to shops downtown and co-op is right next door which is super convenient. Hotel staff (Katelyn, Beth) all provided nice service touch points including afternoon popcorn with toppings bar, coffee in the lobby. Just what we and our dog needed to...

This was our second stay at East Bay Suites. This time we got a deluxe business room instead of a suite. (On-line email special just at the end of the season.) It was the perfect size for our long weekend, and the small kitchenette offered everything, and more, than we needed. The bed was very comfortable, and everything was clean...

We had a one bedroom condo that had a balcony overlooking the lake. It is hard to beat the view! So nice. The room was great too.
