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.

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.

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... More

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... More

This inn is definitely cool because of its location and decoration, but the pool and restaurant knock it back to average. Since this inn is on the water, the views are beautiful (especially at sunrise) The decor of this inn is very cool and makes you feel like you are in a lake house somewhere on Lake Superior! I do...
