“Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

I chose this location by accident. I thought I had chosen the north location. We were pleasantly surprised. Lynn & Cathy at the front desk couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. My sister is going through Chemo and is very touchy about EVERYTHING, plus, is allergic to down. Lynn & Cathy made sure we were in a quiet room away from the boys hockey team that was also staying at the hotel. We were on the 3rd floor, on interstate 35 side of the hotel. Other than a few slamming doors, by careless guests, the place was very quiet. Never hear the traffic. Taylor, who was also working that evening, brought extra non-allergenic pillows and blankets up for my sister. We were very comfortable and no allergic reactions.
The whirlpool had been recently repaired and was really powerful and warm on a VERY cold night in Duluth.
Breakfast was the usual fare, so nothing to talk about there.
Over all, I was glad I made the error in reservations and would definitely stay again. Hopefully, the same staff will be working!

We stayed one night, and chose solely by location on a a road trip. We didn't realize the location included busy train tracks running right behind the building. It sounded like the train was coming right through the lobby! Also, the heater fan in the room was so loud we had to shut it off to get any sleep between trains.
If noise isn't an issue for you, the place was clean, room was a good size, staff were very pleasant and breakfast was good.

Room Tip: Bring earplugs!

On behalf of the entire staff here, I apologize that we did not meet or exceed your expectations. Since your stay with us, we have fixed the problem you encountered in your room. If your travels bring you back to the duluth area, may I suggest one of our standard guests rooms or whirlpool suites. These rooms are located further from the train tracks.

Sincerely,
Barb Allen
Front Office Manager

The hotel staff was very nice and friendly but the room could be much better. First the good, the room had a microwave and refrigerator which was nice. They had a nice little library in the lobby with kids and adult books that was fun for my children. The pool was nice and really warm, my kids loved it. Now the not so good. It had a decent LCD TV but was hooked up to the worst cable ever so the picture was terrible. The bathroom faucet was old and hard to use for my children. There was only about 30 seconds to a minute of hot water, so showers were not very pleasant. The breakfast area ran out of food. I would probably choose a different hotel for my next visit to Duluth.

We stayed at this hotel the first night of our honeymoon. Check in was easy and quick. The lady at the desk was very professional. We stayed in the Master Suite, which was very clean and everything we used was in great working order. Jacuzzi tub was very clean, as was the room. Bed was comfortable. We got the room at an excellent discount because we stay at this chain often. Breakfast was good, typical hotel breakfast-- not complaining, it was free. The attendant was on top of everything and everything was very clean, which is not typical. Would definitely recommend and will stay again when in the area.

Very nice stay. Small things that may not matter to everyone. Depending on why you are in Dukuth, you may find yourself somewhat isolated. A ways from town and no restaraunts except Macdonalds. The ac/heating fan was very loud. On the good side, comfortable beds, willing and able staff and large clean rooms and bath. Try to get a room at the back, since freeway noise can be a consideration. It wasn't too bad, however. I would stay here again

Room Tip: Ask for rooms away from the road. They also have a lovely view. The high floor ones are king rooms...

We booked this hotel for our recent trip to Duluth, Minnesota to attend Superior Man (half-ironman). This hotel was just outside the city - easy to get to the venue, free parking, McDonald's right next door for an early morning breakfast (needed that because breakfast at the hotel did not open until 6 a.m.), pleasant accommodations and friendly staff. Within a couple of miles from the hotel is the Alpine Coaster, which is a must do if you stay here!

We've stayed at this hotel multiple times in the past, and I usually really like this hotel chain, but this stay was a little bit disappointing. The main reason is the breakfast quality - the "make-your-own" waffle station was fine but the overall breakfast offering is skimpy (mainly bread, bagels, mini-muffins, cereal) and the scrambled eggs were not good at all. They looked and tasted very artificial - my child put it pefectly: he said they tasted "powdery". And we could very easily hear noises in the next door room - we could hear their television, their cell phone beeping & ringing, and even their conversations. And we could hear their door slam every time they exited or entered their room. I don't recall having these issues during past visits to this hotel. But we were put in a room with a connecting door to the next room, so in fairness, maybe we just had never stayed in a connecting room before. If we stay here again, I'd be sure to ask for a "non-connecting" room so there's ample distance between us and the room next door. The staff, as usual, was friendly, the bed was comfortable, we liked having an in-room fridge, and the location is great - it's only about a ten minute drive to downtown/Canal Park where we spend most of our time when we visit Duluth. I just think this location needs to improve their breakfast quality and food selection.

Room Tip: I suggest a non-connecting room if you want privacy and you don't want to hear what's going...
