For an old place they have clean and up to date rooms. The location couldn't be more beautiful, but it's not in lake superior if that's what your looking for. Its nearly surrounded by the back waters but you will need to go somewhere else if you want to get in the water. The staff was friendly and check in... More

For a older hotel, I give it high ratings. Very well maintained. Rooms nice, beds comfortable, pool, sauna, and hot tub wonderful. Breakfast was good. The staff goes above average to give you a good visit. I had forgot my fan and I asked the front desk if they had one. They searched and got me one for me. The... More

I would rate this hotel a 3.5 if it were possible. The decor in the rooms was a bit dated, but nothing horrible. Many of the views in the rooms are good; as I was not on the lake side, I expected to be viewing a parking lot. Instead, I had a view of sailboats in the marina and the... More

I'm surprised at the review from the couple who stayed there on 8/2. We were there from 8/2/2015 through 8/6. We went there for the first time several years ago and found friendly staff and reasonable rates. It was very dated, but had great views. We went again 2 years ago and it was in the middle of a full... More

This is an update. We stay at BI once a year for 4 nights while we attend the Bayfront Bluesfest in Duluth. See my original review (written Aug 16, 2014) for more info. Some things were improved over our last stay, and much of the good stayed constant: The room and bedding was clean, and the pervasive cigarette smoke odor... More

Stayed the end of July for 2 nites. Solo traveler. Lobby a little stuffy and musty smelling. I stayed on the 2nd level and was across from the pool area and had view of Duluth and the lake from my window. Room clean, cool and comfortable queen beds. Air conditioner working overtime as it was 95 degrees there! Nice free... More

I recently stayed at Barker's Island last weekend 8/2 for one night. I've stayed here before and knew the hotel wasn't the most up to date. This particular weekend everything was booked due to weddings and events in the area. My boyfriend and I were coming up for a wedding as well and after calling around Barker's seemed to be... More

Stayed there for a Fraternity reunion. Good location and friendly staff but even through it has been recently remodeled I can only give it an average rating. The rooms are small but OK. The bar and restaurant areas were OK and the food was not bad. Even with what it is, it is probably the best stop in Superior.

We stayed at Barker's Island Inn during a busy travel weekend after a referral from another (full) hotel. The workers were courteous and friendly, however some advertised amenities were not available because it was not "summer" yet- although it was Memorial weekend, and the tennis court had weeds growing in it. There were touristy things to do within walking distance,... More
