We were pleasantly surprised with our room. A nice size room with kitchen area. No view but since I grew up there, I have seen all the views. We went to pool and hot tub after dinner. Both very warm, and bonus - we were the only ones there.

Ok, ok, it's not on that "little" lake nearby. I have to admit I was tempted to throw away another fifty dollars and stay down at Canal Park. But let's face it - how many more freighters coming through the channel under the bridge does it take to be satisfied? Another reason I stay at a Canal Park hotel is... More

Joe, I am so glad you gave us a shot to see that you don't have to pay the Canal Park prices to have an awesome stay up North. Just a quick 10 minute drive to the Canal Park, Downtown and even the Miller Hill Mall areas - we have fun things to do on this side of town too.... More

We stayed at the AmericInn Duluth South for our son's graduation. It was very clean, the staff was wonderful and the free breakfast was awesome. I'd recommend it highly. If you're in the Duluth area, it's immediately south of Duluth on US Highway 2. It's only a few miles to Canal Park area.

We are just a quick 10 minute drive to just about any of the amazing attractions, colleges and events in the Duluth/Superior area. And just a mile away from the Spirit Mountain Recreation... More

this Americinn is great. It may not be in Duluth on the water but for the few extra miles it is so worth it. Nice and quiet, great breakfast, restaurant attached, staff is helpful and rooms are clean. Great price for the stay. Plus you can use AAA discount if your a member.

I've eaten in the past at Blackwoods which is attached to this Americinn, but had never stayed here before. Located just a couple of minutes from Spirit Mountain ski area but not able to be seen from I-35, this is a great property to consider, especially given the pricey and more congested areas in downtown and Canal Park. The hotel... More

I thought this would be too far away from Duluth hospitals, but it was a short drive, easy to find. Great rooms, Great service warm welcoming environment. Pool area is great and very warm. Highly recommend and will stay there anytime in the area. Great also if you like to ski, close to the ski areas.

We had the king with whirlpool suite. The bed was very comfy and the room was spacious. The shower is a walk in with nice water pressure. We enjoyed having the 2 person whirlpool tub, very relaxing. It is close to Duluth without the crowd.
