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. Very nice fireplace on the cold nights, fairly well equipped kitchen ( could have used another fry pan and baking dish, but not the end of the world) and plenty of space in...

We stayed in room 307 - a 1 bedroom suite on the third floor with a fabulous view of Lake superior. The suite was much bigger than we expected and very comfortable for our family of 4. We had the kids in the bedroom and my husband and I slept on the sofa bed - a good quality sofa bed...

Thank you for your kind review. We're thrilled that you loved your suite, our amenities, and our location. Grand Marais is certainly a gem, and we're glad you had a chance to explore it. If you do find your way along the shore again, we'll be just as thrilled to welcome you back!

Awesome stay with Amazing views right on Lake Superior. It was so nice to hike with our dog- nightly fires in the fireplace, and leave the windows open to listen to the waves crash. Great hiking- angry trout is a must, and good food at the gun flint tavern as well. Great place to stay in Grand Marais.

The suites have no floor covering apart from a faded,stained,frayed rug. The floor is scratched by the chairs which grate, and sound horrible, especially if you are on the ground floor . The windows are dirty. The bed had a wrecked and torn mattress cover that was not replaced even tho we told them about it on day one of...

I'm so sorry to hear you had a "ghastly" experience! You mentioned a few items that we are in the process of completing. Several units have ordered new rugs, felt padding is being added to furniture, and we're working on a solution for guest who do not wish to wake with the sunrise.

I just got back from a great 4 day stay at the East Bay Suites in Grand Marais. I visit the North Shore once or twice a year, but usually stay in the Lutsen area.

This has got to be the best place to stay in Grand Marais. From the moment we checked-in and met Art (who makes this place double-awesome), we knew this spot was going to be great. We had a 2nd Floor 1-bedroom suite overlooking Lake Superior. The room was outstanding and the scenery could not have been any better. We opened...

We stayed two nights in a first floor 2-bedroom suite, complete with direct access to the beach, a fireplace, kitchenette, living room and 2 full bathrooms. The hotel's units are investor-owned and are available for rent when the owners are not on the premises. The registration area is small, the staff friendly. The lobby is a large room that functions...

I recently stayed at East Bay for a ladies weekend in Grand Marais. We found the suite to be a wonderful lakeside stay.
