The decor is outdated and the rooms need an upgrade however the friendly accommodating staff made up for the outdated decor. The pool area was clean, nice large pool with adjacent arcade for the kids. A huge bonus was the made to order breakfast included with our room. I had my granddaughter, a niece and nephew(pre-teen to teen) with me... More

Rooms are disgusting. Linens dirty. Blanket had cigarette burns. Nonsmoking room with ashes everywhere. I asked to move. They said they were full.... More

Hotel was outdated and overpriced. Pool area was clean and food at restaurant was decent. Watch for the hidden "safe fee" and taxes on your bill. They will charge you for them whether you use the in-room safe or not. I called the next day and asked for the fees to be reversed and they wouldn't do it because my... More

When I arrived at the room I was welcomed with the discussing smell of stale cigarette smoke. I returned to the front desk and told the gentleman about this. He came down with an air purifier and some spray. He also gave me 4 drink tickets to the bar. He was very accommodating and polite.It really helped the odor until... More

We checked into Barkers Island on a very quiet Saturday afternoon intending to stay for just one evening. We knew the hotel was older and hadn't been updated in many years but did not expect the conditions and service we received. The entire hotel smelled of stale smoke, probably because it had not been updated or power cleaned since the... More

Stranded in a March blizzard in Superior i stumbled/skidded into this Motel. The bar and food were very good. The room was a little dated and the red sauce crusted on the lamp base was annoying but overall it was a great stay.

The staff was on the whole very nice and helpful. Food was good and the waitresses and waiters were very nice. The property is very dated but clean. Maintenance was very responsive when I got stuck in the elevator at 5 am. I loved the location and the area is very scenic. I would definitely stay there again and probably... More

My husband and I tried to get a room in Duluth, MN but all hotels were booked and we were pleasantly surprised by this Inn. We had previously had terrible luck with another hotel in Superior so we weren't expecting much. I am a bathroom fanatic and it's the first thing I check wherever we stay. The bathroom in our...

I stayed at Barker's Island Inn in late February for three nights. Unfortunately, I was eaten alive by bedbugs. I stayed in a ground-floor room off of the pool. Luckily, my roommate wasn't affected but I suffered from the characteristic bites all over my back and shoulders and arm. If you stay at this hotel, please do a very thorough... More
