“Very Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

My review may be somewhat biased by getting assigned a room next to the elevator, but I really did find this hotel very average. The staff were not especially nice and the room was small but satisfactory. I think this hotel would benefit from more Marriott competition in Duluth.

I have used the conference room/meeting room multiple times. The room is always clean and the staff is very friendly. The location is convenient and easy for my business colleagues to find. Great place to hold a professional meeting.

Great place to stay. Very clean motel, great breakfast and helpful staff. We'll be back again. This motel is located close to the mall and the airport. We enjoy staying at a motel that has staff and enjoy their jobs and are friendly.

Given the weekend, it was way over priced!!! I payed almost $500 for two nights. Blues fest was in town. They kind a have you by the throat if you want to stay in or near Duluth.
It's clean and comfy. The employees were all very very nice!!! Bed comfy for sure. Average room.

I stayed a whole week in July. Location at the outskirts was fine, as I had a car to get around. Hotel staff was friendly and provided me with useful information. The room was fairly big, bed comfortable, A/C working and bathroom functional. Hotel has a very small gym with a cross-trainer and two treadmills: I only used the cross-trainer, which was modern and top-notch.

My only real complaint concerns the breakfast. Yes, there were things to choose from: coffee, tea, orange juice, couple of cereals, hard-boiled eggs, youghurt, do-it-yourself waffles. But everything was processed and plates and cutlery were all disposable. I would advise the hotel to cut down on quantity and instead serve FRESH bread with UNPROCESSED cheese and perhaps locally produced wonderful jam. And please, use proper plates and cutlery instead of the plastic ones.

Very nice hotel. Rooms were clean and quiet. The continental breakfast was good. Location is convenient to pretty much everything in Duluth. Many restaurants close by and Miller Hill mall is right across the highway. Never more than a 10 minute drive anywhere.

Checked in without any problems. Service was very good. Upon entering the hallway, could see the hotel was dated (carpet had "humps" running down the middle). Room was similar. And it wasn't all that clean (grout was dirty, bathroom drains were slow, etc). Room was quiet however.

Pool was very clean. Exercise room was very modern. But dirty too.
