I had the time of my life, The staff was helpful, curtious and VERY friendly. The atmosphere was fantastic. The seating area outside of the lounge is pefect, we had drinks in the evening with a bonfire overlooking the marina, and our morning coffee as well. A very good time was had by all. On my next visit we might... More

Rooms have a smell. Ice machine broken no one was trying to fix it. Sheets rough and very thin, towels rough old. Requests for extra towels never responded to, stole the next mooring off the cart. Service in restaurant poor at best. Only stayed here due to a softball tounament. No hair dryer, mini fridge. Beds are hard, you can... More

I would not recommend this hotel to anybody. When we stayed there, the weather was very hot and humid, and the a/c, while it kept the room cool, seemed to keep everything damp and smelling musty. We hung up our wet swimsuits in the bathroom to dry, and they were still wet the next day, and it made the room... More

I have spent most of my adult life travelling the world on business. This was a pleasure trip. Found the hotel to be clean, comfortableandwell laid out. Nice pool, although it did get overloaded on the weekend and could have been cleaner. During the week it was spotless.

We booked our trip on line, and they had a booking agency which took our money immediately as soon as we booked. Our reservation said nothing about advance payment. Once arriving we were told we could not change our dates and all money paid was non-refundable. We wanted to leave a day early. We showed them our sheet and did... More

My husband and I stayed at Barkers Inn just recently for our 1year anniversary. We thought it was going to be a great place to stay, because the web site marks it up pretty good, and we thought it was nice to be on an "island". We checked in late Friday night to our "Poolside" room, which our room was... More

Great place to stay, even though it is out of town and with road construction is hard to get to from downtown Duluth/Canal Park. We got 2 free drink tickets and breakfast coupons which was great. They were supposed to have a bonfire on the patio, however the truck didn't drop off any wood so that was bummer especially on... More

We travel to Duluth once a year. I've been going since childhood, and never stayed here. Now I know why. The hotel smells as you enter the back side door. There are many cosmetic repairs needed on the outside, as well as updates needed inside. We brought our dog, so we had a "pet" room. I've stayed in many "pet"... More
