My husband and I were meeting friends for a brief time together. I researched lodging in the Grand Marias area and this site came up with excellent rates. I booked online through a user friendly system and the reservation was all in order upon arrival. Our unit was clean and well equipped. Very comfortable with relaxing color schemes. We would...

Mid-week escape with family to celebrate husband's 50th birthday. Booked a 3 bedroom corner suite with a view of lake and Artist's Point (to accommodate 3 large teenage boys). I was so disappointed to find our suite was the 'back' corner and only had a 'partial' view of the lake (mostly looked over the back of grand marais). The room... More

We truly appreciate that you took the time to review your visit! We understand our 3 bedrooms are a little quirky being on the corner. While the layout has been great for larger groups, some individuals do miss the full lake views from the unit (especially in the winter when the balcony is not really an option). We’re grateful that... More

My boyfriend and I needed a place to stay on a Saturday night and East Bay Suites had a 1BR with kitchen available for around $120.

I love staying at this hotel. The pet friendly rooms come with dishes, a dog bed, and a leash tie-out off the patio area.

This is our second stay at East Bay Suites and would recommend it to anyone. We love the location: right on the lake, yet downtown. We always go after the main tourist season, so the price for a 1 bedroom has been reasonable. We stayed 3 nights, but talk about staying longer.

I booked a suite with kitchenette at the East Bay Suites in mid-October, 2013. Our three night stay started the day after the official summer/fall tourist season ended. What a fabulous place, what a wonderful mini-vacation! Location is right on Lake Superior - each room faces the water, sort of east/south east. The rooms were impeccably clean, the kitchen/dining area... More

Located at a quiet end of town right on the rocky Lake Superior shore, this is an ideal 'dog friendly' vacation spot.
