This vacation condo is right on Lake Superior. The beach and water are right out the door. We stayed in suite 206, a one bedroom. It was nicely appointed, nice furniture and very comfortable bed. The bedroom could have used room darkening blinds as the window faced east and it was total daylight very early. It was decorated nicely. Nice...

My husband and I stayed at East Bay Suites during Fisherman's Picnic from 7/31/14 - 8/3/14. Our room (305) had a nice view of the bay, which we enjoyed from our balcony. Upon check-in we presented a gift card we had been given and we were told the internet wasn't working so they couldn't process our card. We were told...

We would stay here again in a heart beat. It was well worth the money and had plenty of room for our family of 5. The only thing we didn't care for was the end time for a fire on the beach, 9pm. Was way too early, it was still light out. This is steps away from the best donuts,...

The room was great, the sofa was a little worn but we were told the new sofas were on back order and would arrive soon, not a problem, still comfortable and clean. We walk to everything in town. Always love staying here.

My boyfriend and I have stayed at East Bay Suites a few times. We love going to Grand Marais and often plan spontaneous trips with little notice. East Bay has always accommodated us.

We stayed in unit 309 (2 couples) for 3 nights. That unit is a 2 bedroom deluxe suite, and it was every thing we hoped for.

We stay at East Bay Suites whenever we come to Grand Marais--at least once a year. It is very pet friendly with amazing views of Lake Superior. We prefer being on the third floor, for best views and no noise from footsteps above us. During our most recent visit, we found no screens on the patio door and windows. Management...

Great views, comfortable bed, but poor housekeeping, We didn't expect we would need to remake the bed everyday after the maid's attempt.
