We entered our upstairs room & all you could smell was a strong urine scent. We had to have a fan in the window blowing air out the entire time we stayed. I'm not sure if it was due to this hotel being pet friendly or the urine stains on the mattress. It was very unpleasant! We tried to use... More

Hi Jennifer: I am very sorry your stay with us was not a positive one. You mentioned a smell in the room. It had to have been the smell of the new carpet that we recently had replaced in the room you stayed in. It does have that certain smell. We do have pet friendly rooms but they are not... More

This was my 3rd stay here, though the previous 2 were many many years ago and 10 years apart (also back when it was the Lakeview Castle). This was an impromptu trip to Duluth for Labor Day Weekend, and most downtown Duluth hotels were either sold out or wanted over $250/night, which is crazy to me. I took a chance... More

Bottom line – would I stay here again… yes. My wife had event in the Duluth area and we needed a motel room for 3 nights. There was so much going on in the area that rooms were hard to come by, and if you found one it was more than a little pricey. Would I have stayed at a... More

Went to the Hotel on a business trip to Duluth. I was surprised to see the new updates which were added and not there last time I stayed. There was a new flat screen TV and new fridge plus newly decorated room. It is next door to a great bar and restaurant with a huge deck. For the money this... More

My room was given away without my permission despite being reserved with a credit card AND getting a confirmation email. Terrible customer service over the phone. They left me a voicemail asking if I still wanted the room, and by the time I called back 3 hours later (because I was at work and couldn't answer my phone), my room... More

I love this place! I spent hours online trying to find a place. We decided to just wing it and happened upon this place. This is not a new place but very comfortable and the best view of Lake Superior.

This is the perfect place if you want to get away from the craziness of the Duluth harbor. The view couldn't be better and the restaurant next door is top notch. A few updates may be in order, but if you want top of the line, you'll pay for it and it's the view that will keep me coming back... More

Duluth does not have an abundance of reasonably priced lodging, especially during a Saturday night during peak fall color. I was happy to find this for $100/night- no breakfast. It is relatively quiet as far as road noise, since it is on old Highway 61 and so near Lake Superior you could here the waves rolling in. Unfortunately, the Clearwater... More

Thank you for posting! The night you stayed was a bit busy next door, since they had two large wedding receptions. Most of the nights are not like that, and I hope that you give us another chance in the future. We are working on upgrades to all of the rooms, to get them out of the 70's decor. Hope... More

We stayed in Cape Superior Inn, September 2012 end. The Motel is quiet and clean. The room we stayed in had a working kitchen, TV, Sofa and 2 bedrooms. The toilet was functional and clean. The best part of the motel is the view, its awesome. There is a restaurant next door, but we did not eat there.
