With 300,000 of our close personal friends in the area for the Tall Ships event hotels were booked solid and we had a room booked a year in advance for the weekend. When we called to see if we could check in early we were told that actually it would not be ready until about 4pm due to work being... More

After failing to find a place at or near Canal Park, this was a very good compromise. The room was small and the carpet was overly spotted but the price was right and the freebies were generous. The shower was the smallest I've ever used but it worked so don't complain. The passes to gain admission to the Zoo across... More

The rooms were small but very clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. The person working the front desk was friendly and helpful. Wish we would have had time to ride the trail with the bikes they had available for no charge!

Modest place and small rooms but away from downtown, next to the Willard Munger Trail and across from the Lake Superior Zoo, for which the motel supplies free tickets. Family operated. Includes continental breakfast. Excellent price.

Nice folks working here but we found the place pretty run down. The carpet, sofa, bed were old and ready for the scrap pile. But everthing worked and we got by. Nice to be so close to the trail for biking and easy drive into town for dinner.

We stayed at the Willard Munger Inn this past weekend. What a great place to be near the City of Duluth! Within feet of the Willard Munger Trail, A brief walk to the Superior Duluth Zoo and only two miles to Spirit Mountain! The motel/Inn is older and it has the old pine walls. Jeff Munger runs the Inn. He... More

An older motel, but well maintained and quite comfortable. Family owned with above-average breakfast, nice fluffy towels, and easy access to I-35. Located on Grand Avenue, which is newly paved, directly across from the zoo. Free bikes and free passes to the zoo available.

Don't let the web pics fool you. Room was barely bigger than the bed with cinder block walls. They had ziplock bags of French Toast for breakfast. I've been in jails with more charm. People were nice.

"Do not care to go into details about our dealings with Jeff.Just to say that he is a disrespectful nasty person and our dealings with him where unacceptable... a class in anger management could help!

The staff that was working the night that we checked in (7/4/16) was so helpful! He showed us on a map, the best places to watch the fireworks (we stayed over 4th of July). When we got to our room it was clean, cozy and decorated tastefully. We stayed in a Queen room, perfect for the 2 of us. The... More
