We stayed for two nights in rooms 101 and 101a. The staff was extremely friendly and the location was great. Cleanliness is very important to me, and our unit was an A+. We will definitely stay here again. Beds were comfortable as was the spaciousness of the units. The only negative was that we were on a lower level, and...

Our family gathered from Chicago and Pensacola to meet more family in Grand Marais. The two bedroom deluxe was big enough for six to sleep in and eleven more to reacquaint and eat together. The suite had clever new furniture arranged throughout, non-electric games for every age, and even trays of beach stones and driftwood to capture our interest when...

Checked into a two bedroom suite for a two night weekend with friends. To be honest the view was great, a great location ( across the street from a really good doughnut shop) but the room was disappointing for $ 420.00 per night. The $840.00 we payed for the two night stay got us little more then a room to...

Recently stayed here for 4 nights. The room was very clean and well furnished. It was quiet and peaceful, even with people around. I was worried at first because our room was right next to the lobby, but I never once was disturbed by outside noise ( even with someone playing the guitar and singing ). It was located right...

This is the second trip for my wife and friends at the East Bay Suites. The 2 bedroom deluxe is fantastic--well kept and above all, clean. Front office staff was friendly and accomodating. Ignore pics of the exterior--inside is gorgeous. Location is perfect--right on the shore and close to everything in Grand Marais. Hopefully going to make trip #3 next...

Don't let the exterior of EBS fool you - the interior is much more luxurious and spacious than the outside might imply. Loved the Aveda products, fully stocked kitchen, rocky shoreline (perfect for little boys), comfortable beds, and convenient location. We walked to restaurants in town, drove to Grand Portage one day, and took full advantage of the free YMCA...

Clean rooms with nice amenities and a gorgeous view of Lake Superior. We had nice 1 foot or more waves cascading in during our stay, and the sound of the waves was almost ocean-like because you are really close to the Lake. We had a 1 bedroom king and it was a nice size for a couple. Full kitchen was...

We're not fancy vacationers; we just like some quiet, some variety and the ability to find things to amuse us. The East Bay is the perfect solution for us: our room has windows that let in the sounds and view of Lake Superior, and we're walking distance from just about anything in Grand Marais. We always stay in the same...

Right on the shoreline of Lake Superior in downtown Grand Marais. Cute condo with bedroom, full kitchen, living room, fireplace, jacuzzi tub and patio looking right at Superior. Pet friendly and we were on the bottom level so could walk right out our patio doors with the dog. Very friendly staff who gave wonderful recommendations for area spots. Also recommended...
