I recently stayed at Barker's Island last weekend 8/2 for one night. I've stayed here before and knew the hotel wasn't the most up to date. This particular weekend everything was booked due to weddings and events in the area. My boyfriend and I were coming up for a wedding as well and after calling around Barker's seemed to be... More

Stayed there for a Fraternity reunion. Good location and friendly staff but even through it has been recently remodeled I can only give it an average rating. The rooms are small but OK. The bar and restaurant areas were OK and the food was not bad. Even with what it is, it is probably the best stop in Superior.

We stayed at Barker's Island Inn during a busy travel weekend after a referral from another (full) hotel. The workers were courteous and friendly, however some advertised amenities were not available because it was not "summer" yet- although it was Memorial weekend, and the tennis court had weeds growing in it. There were touristy things to do within walking distance,... More

On a recent trip to Minnesota's North Shore, we spent the night at the Barkers Island Inn in Superior, Wisconsin. The front desk clerk was friendly, helpful, and efficient. Our second floor lake view room had two queen beds, small fridge, TV, in-room safe, microwave, and a table and chairs. The room was clean and comfortable. The shower's water pressure... More

The food is excellent...especially the fresh trout and whitefish! The waitresses are accommodating. In addition, the mashed potatoes are fresh with a hint of garlic and the salads are crisp and are offered with a variety of dressings. The bread basket is a nice addition!

Our room was nice and it was a great location.We were looking forward to relaxing in the whirlpool, but it was always full of kids (up to 15 at a time) except for the three times it was closed do to cleaning because of an accident. Once there was even a baby wearing diapers in a inflatable floating around in... More

Arrived from Australia at midnight and was greeted by a very friendly member of staff. Stayed twelve days in clean and very comfortable accommodation. Restaurent food was diverse and of an excellent standard and the staff were very friendly. I was impressed with the location both in terms of outlook and its close proximity to the CBD.

I stayed here for a conference and got exactly what I expected. The hotel itself is dated but it is clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. The exercise room is very small; treadmill, bike, stepper and weight machine. The pool area was large and appeared nice. The conference room met the needs of what we needed. We never had... More

Barkers is a frequent New Years getaway for us. Poolside rooms with microwave and mini fridge are great if you don't mind a little childhood exuberance. Quieter rooms and suites are available as well. A bar and restaurant are available as well. The restaurant has been improving it's menu since a new food and beverage manager came on board.
