Just spent two nights at Beacon Pointe. We stayed there a few years back and were very impressed. It was new, clean and quite frankly why would we ever want to stay in any other hotel in Duluth when Beacon Pointe had so much more to offer, especially at their price. Well a few years went by and we once... More

The room was nice had a fantastic view we were able to see a ship come in right in front of our room. At check in the lady was very nice and friendly as well as at checkout. We were on the 1st floor so were able to walk right out on our little patio in the morning we got... More

Right on the lake. Great views. Right on 35W. That said, we've stayed here 4 times and won't go back. Here's why: Though recently built, the property is incredibly poorly built. All the complaints about noise in these reviews are absolutely true...you'll hear a pin drop next door and any activity overhead sounds like a herd of elephants. Many rooms... More

The views were spectacular. We watched the boats glide by on their way into Duluth and saw the lights from the lift bridge from our deck. We stayed early in the week so we weren't bothered by any noise but if there would have been people staying in the rooms next to us, it would have been a distraction. The... More

We stayed here during the labor day weekend and we had a blast. The rooms had a great view of the Lake Superior. We got up early and watched the sunrise. It was amazing. We didn't have any issues with the noise as others mentioned here. And then there is Free breakfast and free bike rentals. You should definitely ride... More

My family and I stayed two nights in a standard guest room with a pool side view at the Beacon Resort. We really liked staying here, the rooms are very nice, and clean. The breakfast is good which includes waffles, juice, milk, cereal, hard boiled eggs, bagels and toast. The pool and hot tub are nice. The resort sits right... More

The units are right on Lake Superior. Great views of the lake and looking back toward Canal Park and the Liftbridge. Two of the structures are condos for purchase; one building has condos divided up into rental units. The rental units have an interesting design. You can rent a one-bedroom unit, with living space, full kitchen and small deck, or... More

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at Beacon Pointe. This is our second stay. Each time our experience is better. The staff is exceptionally friendly. The location to the Walking path is our main reason for staying plus the LOCATION. The underground parking is a plus as is the closeness to the Lake.

Great place in every way. Beautiful rooms and views with easy access to the lakewalk. Free rentals are a huge advantage for those who want to explore the outdoors. See what you've been missing and love your next trip to Duluth!

Oh, I wish I had read the reviews before booking. As others have said - excellent location on the lake, friendly staff, but zero soundproofing. The door locks in particular had the loudest clicking mechanism I have ever heard. Even with earplugs I was woken up every time our neighbors went in or out of their room. Especially because we...
