This was my first time staying here. I would go back in a heartbeat. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet. Never heard anyone else in the building during my entire stay. The check in/out staff wonderful and very friendly. I could not have asked for a better place to stay.
The only reason I say this is a little out of the way is that it is on the north side of Duluth and I thought a bit hard to find. Nothing that my GPS couldn't help me out with.
There are many restaurants, a grocery store and shopping nearby.
I was in town for a class at the College of St. Scholastica. The hotel is about a 5-10 minute drive from both UMD and the College of St. Scholastica. Close enough without being in the middle of college housing. Because I wasn't in town long, I didn't get a chance to use the pool or eat breakfast but both looked (and smelled, in the case of breakfast) great.
I will definitely be back here the next time I am in Duluth.
