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...

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay at East Bay Suites! I’m happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay, but would like to apologize for the miscommunication of our pet policy when you stayed with us. As you stated, our policy is now clearer on our website, stating that we only accept dogs. I...

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...

What a great place to experience Lake Superior! Our suite had everything we needed, very cozy and romantic, and the views were incredible. Walks along the beach and watching an amazing sunrise while drinking coffee on our patio. Within waking distance to everything in Grand Marais.

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....

Our group of six were in suite 310 - top floor, three-bedroom, two bathroom suite positioned on the corner of the building. It was a fabulous set up - we really loved it!

We only stayed here one night on our road trip tour along Lake Superior but had a wonderful upgrade to a suite with a tremendous view of the lake. Although there are plenty things to do in the area we didn't have time to take advantage of them. We would stay here again if the occasion presents itself .
