Considering a weekend road trip from Minneapolis to Thunder Bay in early December. We'd like to stay one night in a motel around the Duluth area. I've looked at some of the lodges, but most of them require a 2-night stay, which is why I am now looking at motels.
Any recommendations for kitschy yet clean motels around Duluth or Two Harbors?
Technically our budget would be $200-250 a night but since I'm looking for motels I suspect it will be cheaper than that.
Also preferably a motel near a dining establishment/bar of some sort. Doesn't need to be fancy; we are cool with dive bars.
