I have stayed at East bay several times in the past and have always been impressed. Price wise East Bay is overpriced.. Sorry but almost $400 a night for a 1 bedroom isn't good value!! I would definitely recommend this spot for a get away as it's clean and friendly and sits in a wonderful location. When booking be sure...

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. We understand that our Village View Studios do not offer the ideal views of the shores and for this reason they are our least expensive accommodation. The majority of our accommodations however offer gorgeous views of Lake Superior with a price point similar to our competitors. Summer...

Spent a getaway weekend here at the end of the season. We were warmly welcomed by the front desk clerk. Our room was right on the lake with an exceptional view. These are condo units that are rented out. Our room was very well equipped and a week's stay here would be easy. The place is quiet, rooms very clean...

Located at a quiet end of town right on the rocky Lake Superior shore, this is an ideal 'dog friendly' vacation spot. Most suites/rooms overlook the water and have balconies; we reserved at the last minute and ended up with a 'village view' (really the parking lots complete with dumpsters) BUT still thought the complex as a whole was great....

We had a 1 bedroom with a lake view, it was fantastic. Full kitchen that is stocked with pretty much everything you need including a dishwasher. Also had a washer/dryer in the unit which if we were staying longer would have been wonderful. The room had a large bathroom and a private bedroom off the living room. The balcony overlooked...

The room we had was small with one bed but a view of the Lake. We have stayed in many motels with much better rooms and even better views for half what this room was. For that price we expected much more including at least a continental breakfast. We were extremely disappointed. Fortunately we found other places with much better...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at the East Bay Suites! The views of Lake Superior are breathtaking. It was very nice to have a washer and dryer in our room and were able to check out movies to watch in room. Great place to stay and would definitely stay here again!!!

Customer service when I called to make my reservation was excellent, as was the check-in process. We had a great room on the second floor. The room has in-floor heat, which is really nice, no hot or cold spots and a nice continuous temp. An excellent location and beautiful, comfortable place to stay. Excellent high-quality soaps shampoo, etc.

First the pros: This hotel is located right on the edge of the lake and within walking distance of downtown.
