Not a paradise if you stay at Curlys. We stayed in room # 32 on the backside with a view of the lake. The room, ac unit, bedding and carpet smelled of musty and moldy odor. This is a very dated lodging and has not seen anywhere enough maintenance in the past few years. Our room exhibited black mold in...

I wouldn't recommend this motel. When we first walked into our room, the smell of dog urine was immediate and overpowering. We tried using air freshener that we brought after reading previous comments, but it didn't work. We went out for a couple hours, came back and pulled the covers back. There was a bug on one of the beds...

This is reasonably price motel with great view of lake Superior. Room was clean, a bit smelly of the age of the place. Quiet and slept well. Not many motels in town. Location worked for us. Owner provided a towel to wipe our bike down in the morning.

We slept well, bed was fine and so happy we brought our own pillows. It was clean but older. The price is pretty good, especially when other places were double and it's not that bad. There was a nice breeze through the small window lakeside and small window in the bathroom. We keep the fan on in case of noise...

We stayed at Curley's for one night while in Paradise, and the location was nice because the property fronts up to Lake Superior, although you can't access the water due to a steep drop, but we were still able to watch the full solstice moon rise over the lake, as well as the sunrise the next morning. The room was...

I didn't like my staying at Curley's. Since it was my first time at a motel, I was waiting until the end of my trip and compare the motels among them. This one was the worst and the most expensive. I spent $95+tax/night. My room had no view; actually, had a view of the road hehe Motel is old and...

Our room was clean, it had a small odor. Mostly a musty type smell, no ones fault. We just used air freshener. The motel is about what we expected based on reviews etc. Nice staff, very quiet place and the view is amazing, we were on the backside in a lake view room. We stayed two nights. The staff came...

Paradise has limited places to stay for for what is available Curleys is one of the better replaces to stay of not the best. they have full size houses, cabins and rooms. They have an exercise room, tennis court and are right on lake superior. Their property is amazing, clean, staff is great and rooms are clean. Definitely recommend

“This is a lake view, but not a beach front. It is definitely worth setting the alarm for a sunrise viewing.”
