Parking could be a little tricky at this hotel (not really accessible if you have limited mobility) since it's up a hill--I arrived there at 10 p.m. and available spaces were limited. The rooms were average for this type of hotel, the breakfast unremarkable. My main issue is that they offer a CAA discount--when you register on-line there isn't a way to add this. I made the booking anyway assuming that they would be able to give me the discount at the time of check-in. They couldn't (wouldn't?). I was told that I would have to speak to a manager (who was not in), and when I emailed the hotel after my stay to rectify the situation (and possibly book a night there on my way back) they told me that you can only get the discount overy the phone (or in-person check-in), and no offer was made for a credit. The few dollars that I would have saved isn't the issue, but my lack of CAA discount is why I'm rating this hotel as average rather than very good.

Thank you for taking the time to write us this review. We do offer a CAA discount valid Sunday – Thursday. We cannot apply the discount to your room if you book online, however, which was the issue in your case. In the future all you need to do is call our hotel directly when making a reservation and we will happily apply the discount for you. On busy nights our closer parking spaces do fill up quickly, but there are two doors on the end of the building by the far side of the lot that you can enter using your key cards. We have recently added new items to our breakfast menu including apples, oranges, and yogurt on the weekends. We hope that you choose to stay with us again in the future and we will definitely apply your CAA discount if you mention it while making the reservation over the phone with us.

We staied at the Duluth Spirit Mountain Inn while on family vaca. Needless to say we did not spend much time in the hotel. But every time we came and gone, the staff greeted us. Our room overlooked the pool, which was fun for the kids. The continental breakfast was good. Enough to full us up. (Although, there could have been one more selection to the juices. There was apple, orange, apple, orange. Maybe could have been apple, orange, grape, cranberry?) The bed that I and one of my daughters had was ok, but my husband said that the bed that he had saged in the middle. They did have a lot of info on different places in Duluth. That was very helpful! Overall, the stay was nice.

Thank you for reviewing your recent stay at our hotel. Our goal is for each guest to have an enjoyable and relaxing stay and we are pleased that you found that at our hotel. We want guests of all ages to enjoy their stay, and we try to be as helpful as we can by getting directions and providing menus for restaurants that deliver. We have recently added apples and oranges to our breakfast every day, and provide yogurt on the weekends. Also we are working on getting new mattresses to replace those which are less than satisfactory. We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope you stay with us again in the future.

The hotel staff was extremely accommodating and helpful. The hotel is close enough to downtown that we were able to enjoy the area around Lake Superior after Grandma's Marathon. I had a great time and we were well taken care of. There was a shuttle to the marathon start from the hotel and breakfast started at 3:00 a.m. for the runners. They even had a parking lot section reserved for runners so we wouldn't have to use stairs after the marathon :-)

Thank you for the review and compliments to our staff. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay during Grandma’s Marathon with us. Our staff always tries to be as helpful to our guests as we can to make your stay with us enjoyable. Grandma’s Marathon is a huge event and it gets very busy but it is a fun time for everyone involved. We are more than happy to help out the runners with an early breakfast on the day of the race. We are very glad you enjoyed staying with us and we hope you stay with us again in the future.

The hotel was fair. Room was nothing special and overlooked highway. We were there on a busy weekend for Grandma's Marathon and every place was booked an overpriced. The lcoation was a quick 5 minute drive to Duluth, but not worth the money.

Thank you for leaving us this review. Our rooms that face the highway also overlook the trees near Spirit Mountain and the Saint Louis Bay. The weekend of Grandma’s Marathon is one of the busiest weekends in Duluth due to the large amount of competitors and spectators of the marathon. We are just outside Duluth with easy access to I-35 the freeway into town, but we are in a quieter area with trees on 4 acres of land. We hope that you will stay with us again in the future.
