“Its a Motel 6 - lower your expectations”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

For $39 to $45 you get what you pay for. Rooms were a bit chilly with no real blankets to speak of - I guess you're supposed to HTFU if you're in Duluth. Beds were not that comfortable but clean and carpeted floor was disgusting. Location is bordering on shady if you are used to the burbs.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

I had originally planned to stay at another place in town, but when I saw my arrival time shift into the evening, I decided to save some money. I arrived in after dark and left before the sun was up, so I didn't need any thrills. The hotel shows some wear, but I seen worse. The bed was comfortable and the internet ($3 dollar fee) was quick enough. I didn't hear any road noise, but I live on a busier road.

Room Tip: There is no elevator, so if you have a lot of luggage request a first floor room.

I was not comfortable and did not feel safe. Police were called by another patron while I was in the lobby. It was literally the only available hotel room in Duluth! Hindsite is 20/20. I should have booked earlier elsewhere.

Room Tip: Paid $3.25 for internet access

If you don't mind stairs, or not waking up to sirens...No coffee pot or blow dryer in the room, and the beds are close to the floor! Cramped space around the bed on the wall side...carpet is in fair condition, ripped screens on windows. They do offer coffee in the registration area. It was fairly quiet, but the location is not so great and the missing 'perks' of a 'normal' motel really wasn't worth it. I rated "service" as average because we only asked for towels and did get them. We won't stay here again,

Room Tip: Don't bother

We stayed at the hotel this past week-end. Even though the motel was a block or so from I35, our second floor room was extremely quiet. Their $3 per day charge for WiFi was much less than most motels. A nice restaurant is on the other side of their parking lot. The room was clean and really a good value.

Stayed for two nights, the room was not cleaned on the 2nd day.
We received a non-smoking room but it smelled very strong for cigarette smoke as well as the hallways and entryways.
Staff was helpful but not overly friendly. Its not a horrible Motel but it can definitely be better. Wouldn't stay here longer than a night or two.
Cable tv, had to pay for wifi. Free coffee was in entryway.

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.
