We just returned from our trip to Duluth for the weekend. We decided to get away from the cities and booked our hotel a day before we left. We spent $120/nt on lakeside king bed suite. We thought that it was a very good deal as the hotel was in front of the lake and it was the weekend. There was a catch, however.
There was a hockey tournament in town and there were many kids. The room was clean although it was a bit small. Breakfast was good. The pool was small but it was enough for our toddler.
We let "hockey kids" have fun because they are just kids until they started playing music (instrument) after 10pm. The hotel clerk was very good about dealing with our complaints and the noise came down to an acceptable level. Then our toddler started screaming. She's done several trips to overseas with no problems and she never had problems with sleeping in different beds. This was actually the shortest trip we have made so far. I was so worried that anybody could hear her screaming because of its thin wall.
The reason we are not going to stay this hotel was its noise. The wall was so thin that you could hear everything. I mean "everything". This is our first time we stayed at this chain hotel and it may be their standards for the price we paied for. Next time we're not going to make a same mistake again.
