Good to stay and exactly in middle of Duluth & Minneapolis..... The ambiance is fine. Location is out skirts. But right on the side of Interstate. Its exactly 1 hours 30 Mins from hotel to Minneapolis. And 1 Hour from Duluth.

The room is small and the air conditioning freezing. We turned it off overnight, though we were on the west side and it was 90 degrees that day. Still stayed cool. Beds were firm but comfortable. Not much in the blanket department. The breakfast is only two cereals, that we saw anyway. Coffee was okay, with plenty of sugar and... More

Very handy to the freeway. Cigarette smoke smell throughout. Creaky beds. What breakfast? Non-communicative staff. Very thin walls and quite a bit of noise with people coming and going. Bathroom clean.

We only stayed a night as part of a family reunion trip about 15 mins away, but I was happy with the place for what it was. Clean and quiet. The beds were on the harder side, but decent pillows and enough of them. Poor quality thin towels, but there were enough, the bathroom was clean, and we had everything... More

I found some really poor reviews on this place from a couple years ago and was nervous at check in. No need to be... it is clean, QUIET, no bad smells, hot water quickly, good shower pressure, fridge, microwave, great bed (not too firm or soft, just right) nice variety of pillows. Location, location, location! 100 ft off I-35 and... More

Checked in late after flying in from Minneapolis to find a very clean and quiet room. Friendly service! The room smelled so clean when we entered. We all (including 11 month old) fell asleep immediately. We would stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone travelling through the area.

My family and I checked-in and out within one hour. The first clue was that every business in the neighborhood was boarded -up or had steel cages on the windows. Secondly, gangs of young men were on every corner and in the hotel parking lot. Cars on blocks were parked in front. We really knew we were in a ""not... More

This was one of two Americas Best Value Inn that we stayed in this past summer and Fall. Both were very shabby and in need of some upkeep. The one in Finnlynson was depressing, the 'continental breakfast consisted of a dirty little alcove with a crusty coffee pot and the coffee was definitely 'instant'. Another counter had a plastic dispenser... More

We stayed here as all the hotels in Duluth/Superior were booked due to an event there and this was the closest hotel available. Upon entering the hotel, it smells of smoke. The receptionist told us to leave the key in the basket when we left in the morning & sure enough, there was no one at the reception when we... More
