Our family of 4 stayed there a while ago. The view is amazing, right on the water. The breakfast was not great, but I hear it is supposed to improve. You walk in and there is a sofa/bed and tv, then go through past a bathroom, and then into the bedroom, which is lakeview. That's fine, except the sofa bed... More

Beacon Pointe is located at the end of the boardwalk. Great location with beautiful views. The resort feels more like a hotel than a resort. The room was spacious but not luxurious. The carpet was very dirty and the overall cleanliness was acceptable. We did appreciate the underground parking since we visited during the cold season. It looked liked bikes... More

Be advised that they charge a booking fee that they do NOT disclose up front. If you cancel your reservation, even with 24+ notice, they will nick you for $50. It is a lovely area, but with the challenges of traveling up north in the winter, beware of booking.

Booked a weekend with 7 friends to ski and hangout. This was great because each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom AND there was ample common living room/kitchen space to hang out together. We loved it!! Underground heated garage parking much appreciated during winter in Duluth! 3 BR penthouse was so spacious with full kitchen, comfortable king beds, nice... More

My impression of Beacon Pointe - albeit after just one stay - is that it is a vacation property that doesn't quite know what it wants to be when it grows up. Although titled as a "luxury" "resort," as far as I could tell there were no resort amenities on the property, leaving a solidly average condominium complex (that could... More

it was a very quiet place to stay. the views are incredible. the room was very nice even though the bedspread was very dated. the continental breakfast wasn't bad, but could've been a little more expansive. would definitely stay again.

We booked a room here a year in advance…we were so excited to stay here. The property is beautiful but the carpet in our room was beyond disgusting. I have never seen anything so dirty and stained. Really….I can't believe they could accept guests into such a visibly dirty space. There were no glasses or cups in our room and... More

Was looking for a non-chain hotel to stay with my wife while visiting family for thanksgiving. Room was lovely and quiet. Top-floor penthouse suite living room had a awesome vista of Lake Superior with the lift bridge and downtown Duluth lights off to the side.

The location of this place is worthy of a 5-Star rating, but several other items do detract from the overall rating. The mattress in our king-bed room showed two very noticeable "body-divots", the carpet was old and bubbled in a couple of locations, the bathroom appeared somewhat recently renovated, but the vanity countertop was low and the towels looked worn....

The location was great- right on the lakewalk and the views of Lake Superior were unbeatable. However, unless you had a lake view room you would have no other place to enjoy the view unless you were outside on the front patio. There was no communal space inside that allowed you access to view the lake. Our room shared a... More
