“Convenient to Shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

We have stayed several times at this hotel on the Miller Trunk Highway in Duluth. We find it convenient to the Mall and other shopping and pretty good value. Occasionally the chlorine smell from the pool has been overwhelming and our last visit we thought the breakfast selection and quality was terrible. It may have been because the staff was in a rush to clear out the breakfast room long before the scheduled closing time due to a meeting. The front desk staff is always friendly and welcoming. The hotel is clean, the rooms are adequate and the beds are comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the building away from the highway.

Thank you for your feed back on our hotel. Our weekday breakfast runs from 6am-9am and on Saturday and Sunday morning the breakfast goes from 7am-10am. Please be assured that we do not close down the breakfast early for any reason. I will follow up with my staff to make sure they follow through with this. Thank you- E Betzold

We had a good long weekend stay. Was reasonably priced for Duluth. Was very clean and comfortable. Convenient to shopping --- not so much to Superior. Breakfast was nothing special. Staff was friendly and helpful. We would certainly stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

On short notice, I decided to go to Duluth for a weekend getaway and visit the Spooktacular event at Glensheen and do to a concert at Weber Music Hall on the UMD campus.

Since it was short notice, I wasn't too particular about the hotel. I was more concerned about getting a room. This came up and was a really great option! The price was good for my Saturday through Monday trip, and it was conveniently located so I could get to everything easily.

The room was well appointed and clean. The fan on the heating unit was nice and quiet so it was easy to sleep and not be disturbed. I requested a quiet location and was near the end of the hall away from the elevator, and the room faced an open field. There was the usual hallway noises of doors opening/closing, but that all settled down when I went to sleep. The bed was comfortable and I felt rested each morning.

This hotel had a better selection of television channels than some places I've stayed. That was welcome at the end of the evenings after returning from my planned activities. I had not planned to use the pool area, and that ended up being OK as it was closed for maintenance on Sunday.

Parking and access was convenient and felt safe. The staff was always friendly in the interactions I had with them.

I've usually stayed downtown, but I'd stay here again when visiting Duluth

The weekend we stayed, there were many sports teams staying there as well, so it was quite loud. It's an average hotel, a place to put your head at night, but there are many much nicer places in Duluth to stay. We stayed away from the pool, looked as though it needs an upgrade not to mention the kids everywhere. Location is right near the shopping area, up on the hill away from the area attractions, but only a 10-15 minute drive to most of them depending on traffic and road conditions. Winter weather driving can be quite interesting on those hills!

The hotel is updated and fresh for its category of roadside lodging. The lobby is nice and modern, rooms very clean and colorful. Convenient: across from shopping center. The only downside is the dire indoor pool. Space could be better served as wine bar/restaurant.

Room Tip: Upper floors always

Our family had a great night's sleep (isn't it what really matters?) at this hotel. It meets the Marriott standards. The room is clean and the beds are comfortable (even the pull-out soft bed). The hotel is in a convenient location (with Cubs food and shopping mall nearby) and very quiet during the night. The front desk staff is friendly and the breakfast served its purpose (we did not have to wait or anything like that). Will I book this hotel for a weekend romantic getaway? Probably not. However, I would definitely stay it again for future trips to North shore and Duluth area.

Room Tip: High floor?
