My husband and I stayed here Sun. night with the Bentleyville special. The room was nice. The bed was very comfortable. The room was clean. There isn't much light when you're by the door, so I thought there wasn't a blowdryer, but it's on the shelf in the closet. The staff in the lobby are very friendly. We checked in...

The beds were very comfortable and we had a great nights sleep! We loved the Lodge look of the hotel and the views...

When we visit Duluth this is my favourite place to stay. It feels homey and welcoming. Our king size bed was comfortable and provided a great nights sleep. Complimentary breakfast had lots to offer. It's a busy hotel but we were never bothered with noise. Quiet at night. I love that you can open the windows for some air. I...

My family and I booked a set of 3 rooms for my Mothers retirement gathering. I was the first one to check in, and was given room 115. The room smelled musty almost like a strong BO. I was given another room (109) with the same smell, only not as strong. When I was given another room the staff indicated...

This hotel is a good choice of making a family trip to Duluth. Even though it was a busy time to visit and the hotel was full and we were by the elevator, it was pretty quite at night (after 11). The pool area is nice but the air was so full with chlorine we couldn't stand hanging out there...

I had the pleasure of staying here off and on for a few months while working a job in the area. The staff was always very pleasant and rooms were quaint but offered more than enough to keep me satisfied and well rested.
