“Okay place with awesome view!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

I barely spent any time here, mostly just to sleep for one night. The view from the room of Lake Superior is awesome! I have mixed feelings about the room. It was a basic king room facing the lake. I like that the bathroom seemed updated and it was big. We did have a handicapped room so maybe that is why. I liked the little sink, microwave and refrigerator in the room. They were nice. What I think could use some updating is the carpet and the bedspread. The carpet seemed dirty and the bedspread was out of date. The bed was comfortable and I had a good night sleep in it. I would try this place again with the 2 bedroom, 2 bath condos since my son goes to school in Duluth and this is a convenient place to stay. Also, I think they are in the process of doing some updating. I hope so.

This resort/luxury condo complex is on the northeast edge of Duluth with a spectacular view of the bay and harbor. Each of the suites are deluxe with all the amenities one would expect with a high end resort/hotel. Three blocks and you are back on the expressway to downtown Duluth with Canal Park about a 10 minute ride. We were there when the ice was breaking up. What I thought was thunder ended up to be ice jams in the lake colliding with each other.

Room Tip: First suite to the left from the checkin desk.

We were pleased to find out we received a free upgrade to the best condo in the resort on this particular stay! The room was fantastic and included a beautiful view, full kitchen, fireplace, whirlpool tub, and separate bedroom. Aside from the free upgrade, this hotel is located away from the downtown which is nice but still convenient to popular attractions. Prices can be higher in the nicer room and peak season.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a room facing the lake, it is well worth it.

Great place. Right on Lake Superior. Never seen a better view if the lift bridge. Boardwalk right outside. Plenty of parking. Liked the kitchenette in the room the hot tub overlookung our huge deck. Could tell the lobby was new. There were pictures of the new carpet, beadspreads and furnature in the lobby. The management company is new to this property and they mentioned all the upgrades to detail. We could see it. Staff is so nice. Everything clean.

Our family of 4 stayed there a while ago. The view is amazing, right on the water. The breakfast was not great, but I hear it is supposed to improve. You walk in and there is a sofa/bed and tv, then go through past a bathroom, and then into the bedroom, which is lakeview. That's fine, except the sofa bed was missing the mattress (and my girls were being independent, so I didn't notice until morning when they complained about how poorly they slept), and the door to the bedroom locked from the sofa room, not from the bedroom. We had a Jacuzzi that my husband was using but we couldn't lock our door. Very strange. I brought up our concerns, and the front desk just said it was weird, but didn't do anything. They are very expensive, so we won't be back. Too bad since the view really is incredible.

Laura R, Manager at Beacon Pointe Resort, responded to this review, April 14, 2014
We are sorry to see that your stay with us did not meet your expectations, it is our goal that every guest experiences a level of service and accommodations that exceeds expectation and we apologize to you for not meeting that goal. As is common in the hospitality business furnishings do take a lot of abuse. We are happy to say we are doing some major updating this spring to keep our property the best in town. This includes new bedding, paint and carpet, sofa sleepers, among other things. If you’ll give us the opportunity to make this right for you, you may contact the General Manager Chris through the resort’s “Contact Us” web page. We would appreciate hearing from you directly and encourage you to get in touch. Thank you for being our guest.

Beacon Pointe is located at the end of the boardwalk. Great location with beautiful views. The resort feels more like a hotel than a resort. The room was spacious but not luxurious. The carpet was very dirty and the overall cleanliness was acceptable. We did appreciate the underground parking since we visited during the cold season. It looked liked bikes and kayaks are available for use when the weather permits. Since it is located by the bike path, this is a nice perk. I may return there because of the location. Good but not fabulous.

Room Tip: There are many options, so think about your wants and needs before booking.

Be advised that they charge a booking fee that they do NOT disclose up front. If you cancel your reservation, even with 24+ notice, they will nick you for $50. It is a lovely area, but with the challenges of traveling up north in the winter, beware of booking.
