“Great home base for our vacation day trips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

The Residence Inn was current and clean. We shared a 2 bedroom/2 bath suite with another couple. Bedroom/bath area had plenty of room. There was a living/dining area that was adequate, with a nearly full kitchen equipped with a medium size fridge with freezer compartment and ice maker, two burner stove top, micro, dishwasher and kitchenware. Full hot breakfast every morning in a big common areas that was also equipped with a couple of big LCD TVs and a couple of small one. We didn't use the pool and hot tub or workout room. Hot food for the evening meal on M-Th. There was nice patio area with a gas barbecue and gas fire pit. Staff were all friendly/courteous/professional/helpful. A large retail shopping mall is located within walking distance but we didn't even notice it until the second day as we came in to the inn from a different direction. Excellent.

A big storm hit our neighborhood and our electricity was out for two days. With sweltering heat we decided to head to Duluth for some air conditioning! We settled on the Residence Inn. They were terrific. Let us check in very early (at noon!). The room was very comfortable, with a nice computer work area where we could get caught up on email. The couch was comfy and the bed was very, very comfortable. They had evening treats (soup, salad and sweets) but we opted for a Texas Roadhouse which was only a few blocks from the motel. The staff were some of the friendliest and most helpful we have ever experienced. We left the motel, refreshed and ready to get back home.

Greetings BemidjiHoffmann,

Oofta! Do we know about storms! We've had so many families come to us lately to find a safe haven from the heat and/or flooding. We are so happy to hear that we gave you a little peace of mind while you settled into some real comfort in our suite.

Please don't wait for the next storm to come and visit us again---we hope to see you very soon!

We appreciate you,

Hotel was new and clean. Staff were friendly. Breakfast and included dinner was good. We loved having the bedroom, living room and kitchen. It allowed us to keep bedtimes and have an enjoyable trip. We cooked several nights and ate at the hotel sponsored dinner for one. We'll never go back to the traditional style hotel room after this! It makes family travel so easy. We are sold on the Residence Inn!

Room Tip: If traveling with children, get a one or two bedroom. It is so relaxing to put them to bed and stil...

This hotel was the best ever. My small group of fishing buddies stayed at this hotel for the second time on our way to Canada and they never fail to disappoint. The staff is well trained and is very friendly. They seem to really care about their jobs and want the guests to enjoy their stay to the fullest. The entire hotel is immaculate and the guest rooms in particular have everything one could possibly need. We had the pleasure of meeting the general manager and it is clear that she truly cares about the guests' experience. We will be back!

Hotel seems new and is immaculate and stylish. Rooms are large and very comfortable. One of the best guest laundries ever - lots of washers and dryers. Staff was knowledgeable and helpful. Location is a limitless out of town. At first we were a little concerned about distance from downtown and the Lake, but it truly was a short drive to Canal Park and easy to get to the scenic North Shore drive. Would be very good for families. Very nice fire pit and barbecue area outdoors as well.

This is the best hotel we have ever stayed at, bar none. The property was immaculate, all staff were very friendly and attentive. The extended stay suite was beautiful, very comfortable, and spotless. If there is one small complaint, it's that the pool water felt slimy. I'm sure the chemicals needed to be balanced, that's all. Check in and out were smooth, lots of food and shopping options within a five minute drive. 24 hour cub grocery beside hotel.

If you have the opportunity to book at this residence inn, or any other.... do it. You will not be dissappointed!!

We stayed here for 3 nights, never having stayed at a Residence Inn before, and although it was not right near or in Canal Park, the property was a 5 minute drive away from there and the price was great. AND we could bring our dog. The facility is beautiful! The staff is wonderful, friendly, helpful, everyone greeted us whenever we ran into one of the staff. The fitness room is nice and cool so you don't melt while working out, they even have complimentary ear phones if you forgot yours (so you can plug into the TVs mounted to the equipment). The laundry room and pool are also great, although we didn't use either. The patio has nice seating areas, a grill to use if you wish, and a gas firepit for evenings. The breakfast is wonderful - anything you can think of from oatmeal to scrambled eggs and sausage to bagels, cereal, yogurt, fruit, etc. The rooms are spotless and very nice, the bed was one of the most comfy I've ever slept in, and our dog felt right at home in the room. Whenever we visit Duluth again in the future, we won't stay anywhere else BUT Residence Inn! HIGHLY recommend!!!

Room Tip: Rooms on the back of the facility are quieter from street noise, although we didn't hear any str...
