“Above average accommodations for family or business”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 weeks ago

Price is fair (Duluth area is often higher than other parts of the state) I paid $130 for a King suite. Room was clean and very spacious. It had the split room setup as with most (true) suites, two flat screens. Living room had a couch, chair, tables, office area. View is limited of Lake Superior. It is located away from the city on the very edge so not a lot of restaurants in walking range. Great variety at breakfast, very friendly and accommodating staff. I think this is the perfect hotel for a business traveler or short stay. If you are on a family trip and want to enjoy Duluth and the lake you may want to stay in the many hotels on the lake (more money but much more entertainment within walking distance).

Good
* Spacious room (suite)
* Comfortable bed with non-bouncy style mattress
* Mini-fridge with interior light
* Large closet
* Desk light fixtures with power outlets
* Breakfast had better than average oatmeal selection

Average
* Furnishings were not outdated
* Pretty common breakfast options including: waffles, cereal, yogurt, muffins, fruit, sausage patties, biscuits and gravy, eggs
* Bathroom featured standard tub/shower and good steam ventilation and sink countertop was large enough to accommodate toiletries for my wife and me
* Two TVs that seemed small for the room size (~27" LCD)
* In room microwave and coffee maker

Could Be Better:
* Noisy
* Poor sound dampening for an already noisy location next door to gas station.
* You could easily hear the doors from nearby rooms

Easy to get to Easy to get out. Nice clean rooms,friendly staff and good service. Great breakfast,with several choices. Has an elevator for 2nd floor rooms. Fast food within walking distance. The only draw back is it is close to an active ( one time in 20 hours we were there.) train track . Other wise i would rate it 5 stars.

Room Tip: Try to get a room as far from the train tracks as possible.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for two nights while visiting Duluth, coming from Minneapolis and en route to Wisconsin. The hotel is on top of a hill (Spirit Mountain) and only about ten minutes to downtown and Lake Superior. The woman at the counter was friendly and inviting when we checked in, and the hotel was very quiet and clean. The room was at the end of the hotel, was very large and spacious, with a comfortable bed. Breakfast was decent, typical continental breakfast with some hot items.
The hotel is right off the main highway into Duluth, but we never heard the traffic. There is a railroad behind the hotel, and we only saw two trains go by, one in the afternoon and one at night, but the horns did not blast and it was mostly quiet.
Some great restaurants in Duluth included Fitger's Brewhouse, Grandma's Saloon, and Pizza Luce. Duluth Coffee Company had great coffee as well.

I stayed here one night whilst holidaying in the region. This motel is on the outskirts of Duluth next to a highway. Very little traffic noise was heard. I had pre-booked and reception had my details on hand on arrival with a room allocated and card ready. The receptionist was very helpful with motel amenities and restaurant suggestions nearby. The bed was very comfortable, and the motel/room/bed and bathroom were very clean, I would definitely stay again.

Had a great continental breakfast with a beautiful lobby and rooms. Right next to Spirit Mountain Adventure Park, fun for the kids. Nice pool and hot tub, free cookies and coffee around the clock in the lobby.

Great place to stay, though on the days we stayed there the fog was outragious. The enterance to the hotel is a bit tricky, but if that is the worst part of by day I would gladly take it. The staff were friendly and helpful and the accomodations are outstanding. I would stay there again.
