This is the second time we have stayed at William Munger Inn, and we will be back. The proprietors are wonderful, always nice and welcoming. The rooms are simple and clean, not pristine. The breakfast is simple, but good. Fruit, waffles, cereal, coffee, etc. it is right next to the William Munger Trail, which is awesome, and they have bikes... More

I wouldn't really call it an Inn more like an old fashioned roadside motel with perks. Room was fine nothing special but with your stay you get the free zoo pass, use of bikes (and the trail is right behind the motel) and if you ask use of a kayak on the water. The continental breakfast had more items than... More

We interacted with helpful, friendly staff at the front desk. Our room was small, but clean and comfortable. A continental breakfast included cereal, toast, and fruit, as well as coffee, tea, and juice.

Small room, grotty shower, street construction and little lighting in the room. The check in was fast and pleasant, the complimentary breakfast was quite good, and the internet was free and fairly fast. The price was low, and based on the room that is how it should be. I was told that the motel is close to or adjacent to... More

Really enjoyed this quaint inn that was easy to find and close to local restaurants. Appreciated the included continental breakfast, the comforts of the room, and the memorabilia of this multi-generation family owned place.

Price just over $100 for a Jacuzzi suite on a Saturday night but it came with free tickets to the zoo across the street so not so bad. Easy check in. Nice place to have a bonfire - wood provided - and even bbq grills available. Place a bit worn down but cozy over all. Free newspaper and breakfast -not... More

This is an older motel, but like our homes they have tried to keep up adding some very nice touches. The furniture, linens, towels and appliances are new and refreshed. Our room was clean, and having a bar sink, microwave and small refrigerator were nice. They have decks and firepits for the rooms. The property is located in a great... More

My boyfriend and I arrived late (around 1am) and the gentleman on site didn't seem to mind at all us calling and waking him up to let us check in to our room even though he didn't have to! The room was small and cozy, very rustic, very log-cabin feeling. There was a cold draft from the door (that happens... More

Seems to be the place to stay for skiing Spirit Mountain or hiking the trails along the St. Louis waterway. I stayed on one of the coldest nights of the winter. The location was convenient for a training and I wasn't in the room much. It was affordable for Duluth and served my needs. My room walked out to the... More

This is a nice, clean mom and pop motel. It is a little dated, but very well done. Unique woodworking on all the fixtures in the room and lobby. Continental breakfast is nothing to speak of, but not a deal breaker. A little out of the way for the through traveller, but for skiing, hiking etc. it's very well located.... More
