This was our 3rd time here. I've read mixed reviews, but the good outweighs the bad. It is an older hotel, but hands down you won't find a better value than here. Our 2 room suite could use a door to separate the rooms, a new and softer bed, and maybe carpet. But for a whirlpool suite for $165/night with... More

This hotel shows its age but is still reasonably well kept and worth comforting if you appreciate the location near the lakefront and adjacent to the marina. I've stayed here several times over the years. While it is dated, they do have a restaurant and bar, and offer a sit down breakfast that works well for business travelers.

This hotel is in a great location with wonderful vistas. You can either overlook Lake Superior or the marina with their array of sailboats and large lake boats. We stayed here overnight since we had an early morning fishing charter scheduled. The charter boats are only about a half a block from the hotel. If you have a charter scheduled,... More

Thank you very much for the lovely review. We are in the process of renovations and the rooms are not done yet. We have painted the rooms, the carpet is about a year old, the mattresses are new and the curtains we put in in March. We still need to receive our new bedding and hoping to have it in... More

We boat at this marina and often have family stay at this hotel. It has recently been renovated and their rooms, food, wait staff are unbelievably warm and customer focused. The manager of the facility works tirelessly everyday to make sure everything is just perfect. The price of the rooms and food are very comparable considering the high quality they... More

We stayed at Barkers for a few nights in June. The place could use a little updating but all in all it was fine and we all enjoyed our stay.

Older hotel now being updated. Rooms are a bit of a walk from the lobby. Big pool area and nice restaurant and bar. Outside seating if you happen to got there on a day that's sunny. We were a WW2 vehicle convoy and our vehicles were safe in the parking lot.
