Had the chance to stay at this hotel during the weekend. Nice clean room and friendly staff. Breakfast was very good and fresh. Pool room was also very nice. No doubt this is a nice little town and a great motel!

We wanted to have some good relaxing time over the rainy Memorial Day weekend and we had exactly what we wished for! Freshly renovated building, everything looks new and clean, everything works. We had a great time in pool, sauna, and a hot tub and the complimentary breakfast was great. Beats crowds of waterpark resorts! Staff was very friendly. We... More

Vadim, Relaxing is what it's all about! We can't control the weather, as you know, but I'm glad the rest of your adventure was as you expected. There is so much to do in our area - in any weather. There's the adventure park just 3/4 miles away at Spirit Mountain - all the fun things in Canal Park just... More

This AmericInn location was the cleanest, most well maintained one I've stayed in. We drove a long way on the first day of our vacation, and were very tired. Staff were friendly and efficient and we very much enjoyed our stay.

I have stayed in a number of AmericInns, with varying degrees of satisfaction. This location was the cream of the crop. Very clean, well maintained, with friendly knowledgable staff. Easily the best AmericInn I've stayed in!

The food was very good. I would reccomend it for sure. The place had a really friendly feel to it, perfect for a quick lunch. Our waiter Happy was great! He deserves a raise. I am 100% sure that's not his real name.

We were attending our daughters graduation from UMD the weekend of May 15-16. We have stayed here before in the past and have had good experiences. Staff was friendly, breakfast was good and the rooms were quiet. Didn't get a chance to visit Black Woods this time. Will be staying here again.

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

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
