“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Worst stay I have had here. Only a few channels came in on the tv. Noisy!! There was hardly anything for breakfast, because the attendant just stood there and watched instead of refilling.
Heating system was VERY noisy!!!

The front desk manager who checked us in and out was very friendly but they should at least ask how the stay was.

Our family spent the last 5 nights at this hotel. We chose it because of its excellent location, across the hwy from Spirit Mountain. The staff was very welcoming and friendly, the rooms were clean, nicely decorated, and the pool/sauna/hot tub were great to have. The building does indeed have thin walls and was rather loud, but most of the noise could have been avoided if parents were a bit responsible in supervising their children who kept running the hallways. Complimentary breakfast was convenient but needs much improvement. The coffee was "brown rain water" and after staying for 5 nights we really got tired of the waffles. There was no variety and very few choices. The skim milk was tasteless and a few bananas would have been nice, instead of apples/oranges daily.Overall a good value for the price paid ($60/night fees included).

The place was no fun at all. It was like being in a reform school the people at the front desk were rude and had WAY too many rules. It was well below zero and we had to leave our hockey gear in the car and by morning all our stuff was frozen and wet because of the strict rules that said we weren't allowed to bring our hockey gear inside. There was a 10 o-clock lock down. They clearly did not want any hockey teams or groups staying. Duluth is a great town for a hockey tournament but this place was not the right place to stay. We had a co-op team that was trying to get to know each other, but that wasn't possible, unfortunatley. It is a great place to stay if you are old and go to bed super early except that the parking lot needs 4 wheel drive just to get to the inn. The maids were extremely friendly and helpful. The management likes their rules more then they like people.

This was our first time staying here. We were very disappointed. The room was clean and fine, but we had a connecting door to the room next to us and we could hear everything they were saying clearly. Also, the floors above us were so creaky that we could hear the people above us walking around. So much that we couldn't fall asleep until they went to bed and we woke up because we heard them walking. I live in an apartment and am used to hearing some noise from neighbors, but I have never experienced anything like this before, not even when I lived in the college dorms. Also, the beds were extremely uncomfortable and the heating unit was either really hot or really cold. The continental breakfast was disappointing and you could barely step into the room to look at the food it was so busy. Also, there were kids running around the halls up until midnight and again in the morning as well. We could hear people closing and opening their doors clear as day. We were very disappointed, needless to say we will not be staying here again.

Room Tip: I would suggest the top floor, so you don't have to deal with creaky floors above you.

We have stayed here 3 time and have been treated very well on every visit. The staff was very nice and went out of their way to help us. The pool and hot tub were very nice. Breakfast was always very good. Will be staying there again and recommending it to everyone.

We have stayed here 4 times and have been treated very well on every visit. The manager went out of his way to accomodate and assist us. There have been upgrades to the rooms and they are clean. The pool and the hot tub are a bonus, especially after a long days drive. Breakfast is good, especially waffles. The breakfast area is always clean. We will be staying again on our way thru the Duluth area. Thanks to all the staff for a place well run.

I called to check the cancellation policy of this hotel a week and a day before my check-in date. I was told by a very nice woman that I had until the Tuesday before til 4PM. (72 hours) Because our plans did indeed change I called the Tuesday before at 8AM....spoke with thee most RUDE MAN ever....he told me there was no way I could cancel this reservation...If I wanted it cancelled I had to do it 72 hours after I originally made it which was 4 weeks ago! NEVER in my life have I been spoke to like this from a front desk MANAGER as he claimed to be. I was able to go online and cancel the reservation, did receive a cancel confirmation number and did call the 800 reservation line to make sure it was cancelled. Now I will wait and see if he still tries to charge my credit card!
