Spent four nights at Barkers Island while attending the Bayfront Blues Music Festival over in Duluth. Barkers Island could certainly use some updating, the rooms and hallways are well used. But everything in the room was clean and in working order, so no complaints in that area. The room had a coffee maker, microwave, hair dryer, refrigerator, and a safe.... More

This place was average, for the price $139 + taxes I was expecting a lot more. We got there and the room stank of cigarette smoke. I right away looked for bed bugs as another reviewer had said there were some. Luckily I never had an issue with that. We had dinner in the restaurant and that took almost 2... More

We stayed recently for a wedding. The hotel location is very nice, right on the harbor in Superior. We were able to see the ships passing through from the hotel. The beds were ok and sheets clean. The bathroom was not very nice. Smelled like they forgot to mop under the sink, the towel rack was falling off the wall... More

Cons: Very uncomfortable beds. Outdated room. Peeling wallpaper. Hole in our wall in our room. Charged for room safe we didn't use (I caught it & they refunded it). Layout of hotel seemed like a labyrinth. Ice cream bars in the machine seemed to have been melted & refrozen and freezer burned. Pros: AC worked well, microwave & fridge included,... More

an older place, but it is nicely appointed. Room was large enough though when using the desk you cannot walk between bed & chair to go across room, just the set up was difficult. Seemed clean enough. A very large complex & easy to get lost. Desk staff was friendly. Wifi worked well.

Not our first choice - had to stay in town on short notice. My wife and I went to UMD, and we know this used to be a really nice place to stay back in the 1980s/1990s, but the owners have clearly not invested any money into it since then, and it's gotten quite dumpy. We won't be staying there... More

As I walked into the building I thought to myself it felt like I was in an conference center in the north somewhere. Then I realized I was in a conference center in Northern Wisconsin. It still felt dark and some what outdated. The room had microwave and refrigerator. Actually one of the cleanest hotel rooms that I have stayed... More

The decor is outdated and the rooms need an upgrade however the friendly accommodating staff made up for the outdated decor.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

I booked my room online in January and was assures a suite. I checked I. Today and they gave me a closet room. The two other couples with us booked after us and they got better rooms. Rooms are disgusting. Linens dirty. Blanket had cigarette burns. Nonsmoking room with ashes everywhere. I asked to move. They said they were full.... More
