I stayed here for a 3 day conference. The conference facilities are just fine for what we needed. The lobby and bar area are being renovated at the moment so they opened a bar area in the hallway outside of the conference room in the evenings. The rooms are still dated and need a major upgrade. It is mostly a...

Things I appreciated about this hotel were the sauna, hot tub and pool. The staff were nice and professional. What I didn't like was the noise level in the room. Most rooms seem to have a connecting door that lets through noise. On top of that are what sounded like hollow walls that also conduct sound. There were three times...

Thank you for your response.

This property would probably be much better in warmer weather. My friend and I stayed there in December so it was not outdoor weather! Compared to other hotels in the area, the rates were pretty good. There is a bar and a restaurant, but both were a bit expensive in relation to their level. The bar quits serving food fairly...

Thank you for your review. We are on our winter hours for the restaurant so it does close an hour earlier in the winter then in the summer. We are still in the renovation process with the hotel so our rooms are not completed as of yet. We are hoping by summer. We do hope that you come again in...

Food was good and plentiful! Price was reasonable. Typical midwestern fare, and not just warmed up directly off a food service truck. Would be a good place to go for holiday meals for families and other large groups.

Great stay with a great view of the largest fresh water lake in the country. Beautiful room with great beds. Had an indoor pool which the kids had a blast in. Had breakfast in the hotel. Great service and the food was great.

When just here for a visit -- this Inn is a safe bet. We ended up here when professional golf, hockey tournaments, and a cross country invitational took over the area. The good: My husband loved the location. This is an older hotel and it is not near any of the tourist places of the canal (20 mins). But if...

This was my 5th stay at Barkers Island in the past 15 years. I was thoroughly satisfied, the room was updated, clean, damage free and odor free. It included a microwave, frig and electronic safe. The bed was very comfortable. I had a 2nd floor poolside room with a great view of Duluth. Even though it was poolside it was...

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend away for her birthday. The location is nice, right in the middle of Barker's Island, with a nice view of the marina on one side and Superior Bay and, across that, Park Point Recreation Area on the other side. The hotel has ample parking and was in good condition outside. Inside...

Free breakfast only certain days of the week. Overall if you spend $100 or less for the night, this hotel is worth it. We ended up paying $140 for the night (which this place is no worth), which we booked a week in advance but this was almost the only place left in the area that we could afford. The...

We stayed on the last night of our "mini-moon" after deciding to stay in the area one more night. This hotel is fairly average as far as the room goes but things are well-kept and clean. We had dinner and the free breakfast in the restaurant and the food was pretty good. I would stay here again. If you're looking...
