This hotel is right on the lake. Woke up every morning to a beautiful view of the lake. All shopping is walking distance from the hotel. No need to use our car. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very friendly. House keeping did and excellent job. Just wish the restaurant and bar opened earlier. All in all,... More

This hotel is set on a great spot on a wonderful street in a cute town on lake Michigan. Located across the street from a Duluth Trading Company Store, there is much to see and do. When done, the hotel is safe and comfortable. I would recommend this hotel without thinking twice.

My wife and I stayed at Holiday Inn in Port Washington, WI and totally enjoyed our stay. The location is amazing, located right on the downtown Marina with a view of Lake Michigan. The hotel is a little bit aged but what it lacked in pizzazz, it makes up in location. The hotel was clean and neat and the bed... More

We stayed here while planning our annual Wine, Cheese, and Beer tour. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff were very helpful and recommended restaurants in the area. We will be back in September with our MG club. It is located on Lake Michigan. What a view!

Third time We have been here. It is pet friendly and they have designated rooms for that. Rooms were clean and comfortable. There was always someone walking around making sure the parking lots and lobby was clean. Great location! We will be back!

The hotel was a little outdated but the location was great. Right next to the docks and downtown. Walking distance to decent restaurants. The walls were so thin, I could not only hear the neighbor on his phone, I could hear who he was talking to on the other end! I was glad to hear that he had a successful... More

The staff is friendly, but not first rate. The room is bed-bug free, spacious and comes with a good size fridge and microwave, but the room and the whole hotel is in desperate need of a remodel update. I would not eat at the restaurant, as it looked like I might contract some salmonella, but luckily there are many other... More

The smell of the carpet is overwhelming. Was not sure I would be able to sleep with the musty smell. Would not walk barefoot in the room. Please rip out the carpet and put tile if you are not going to clean. I can see at the end of the summer maybe having this smell but not at the beginning.... More
