“You get what you pay for...most of the time”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

If you are looking for a clean place to sleep, this is the play. There are no frills here. There isn't even any shampoo in the bathroom. The mid-week price is right, but it goes up $40 on the weekends and is not worth that price.

The staff was courteous and the hotel was neat and clean. Not in a good part of town, and next to a very expensive place to eat! No breakfast of any kind was offered.

We called every hotel and they were sold out so we are forced to stay here. Starting off our room reeked like smoke. We found dead bugs in the bathroom, and pubic hairs on the nightstand. Along with no blankets in our room. Personally I would rather sleep in the gas station bathroom. Please go somewhere else or sleep in your car if u have too!!!

Worst place on our trip around lake Superior. Unfortunatly this was our first night stop. The place was grungy, EXPENSIVE for what you got. 100.00 for the night no breakfast,no coffee in the room and not very clean. just a nasty little hotel in a less than desirable area of town. The bed was like sleeping on plywwod, the air was cool at best and on a hot night not good. the desk person was very curt and straight to the point. not good

A pretty typical Motel 6 with minimal but adequate room, definitely the most economical place to stay in Duluth. WiFi was an extra $3.00 but even then the room was only about $53.00 total for one night. No coffee maker, refrigerator, or microwave, but coffee was available in the lobby (night clerk accommodated our early 4:00 AM departure by making coffee early) and TV and WiFi signal were good. Room was large and had two double beds, table and chairs, and a small but adequate bath. Driving time to the airport was @ 20 min., at least in the early morning hours. Would stay again, particularly if only for a limited time.

The location of the motel was nice and convenient. It was only a five minute drive to Canal Park, close to highway 35, next to a gas station and places to eat. However it was also located next to a truck company so it was noisy in the morning. The room was clean and had the basic bed and tv. Our room didn't have a refrigerator. It was also inconvenient because there was no hair dryer and there were only limited channels on tv. You will also have to pay an extra $2.99/day for access to wifi at the motel. Overall I would say that if you don't plan on staying in the motel for long it is a good rate and location for a short weekend getaway.

Room Tip: Get a room not facing the truck company, it might be less noisy in the mornings if you are not an ea...

Get ready for this one, I'm a traveling musician, I stay in a lot of hotels...and this is by far the worst. My band stayed here because we played at cylde iron works and its super close...but its not worth it. The staff had barely a clue how to process credit cards. The room was filthy. Garbage in the bed, gum on the wall, not vacuumed. On top of that thru have security roaming the halls because past bad instances...which I won't get into. Do yourself a favor and go ANYWHERE else....
