We stayed here because my sister and brother-in-law typically stay here and we were attending North House Folk School with them, so we decided to book at the same facility. This proved to be quite convenient and we were very pleased with the facility. The commons area is quite comfortable, with games and movies available. We spent a couple hours...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in February to celebrate my husband's 30th birthday and had such a wonderful time!! The staff is so friendly and accommodating, the hotel is so convenient and walking distance to everything in Grand Marais.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights in February. The suite was unreal, very clean, and well maintained. The suite had a full kitchen with everything we needed, a beautiful fire place and huge soaker bathtub. The view is amazing, watching the sunrise each morning. We hope to return in the summer to take advantage of the balconies...

We recently stayed at East Bay Suites and rented a pet-friendly suite. This was the nicest pet-friendly place we've ever stayed at and you'd never guess pets were allowed in there! The rooms were updated with nice amenities. There was a fireplace in the living room that was also enjoyed by the couple who stayed in the master bedroom. It...

This review is actually for a stay in June 2013. I stayed here several years ago now, but I haven't forgotten it at all. This hotel is truly the best way to stay in Grand Marais. When I visit, I am up at 5am to go hiking and not back until I'm dirty and exhausted around 8pm. It's beyond convenient...

Stayed in a 3 bedroom suite with lake views. Really well appointed, decorated and furnished. Great living room area and balcony/deck. The staff was really great. Very friendly and helpful. I used to live in Grand Marais so I knew the area really well. This property basically replaced a quaint little lake front motel with a fairly upscale boutique/suite hotel...

Loved staying here in September with my husband and daughter. It was a perfect place to watch the sunrise and sunset and it was also very family friendly. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.

The Suite we stayed in was perfect for our "mini-moon" trip to Grand Marais. To me it looked like the best situated hotel/lodging on the lake. We had a room on the second floor overlooking the lake and it was exactly what we were expecting based on pictures. It is a simple, no-frills place to stay and is nice if...

Well this was a disappointment. Couldn't find a place to park, got checked in. Got in the elevator and thought it was going to break. Got to the room and that was quite the let down. This place was built with the cheapest, worst materials, doors don't shut, bed and pillows suck, closet door won't close, windows don't stay open....
