I had booked this resort for my anniversary. I spent a little extra than staying at a hotel since it was a special occassion. We got a standard inside room with no lake view. The room was very spacious. I liked having the small kitchenette. We did some DVD's from Redbox a couple of nights although they had their own DVD library you could borrow for one night for free. There was a wide selection of channels although the channel guide in the Guest Booklet in the room was wrong. The rooms have a wall air conditioner. We tried to cool the room down but it kept blowing warm air (I know it's October and in the 30's - 40's at night but I can't sleep at 77 in the room). I called the front desk and they weren't able to figure out the problem so we had to wait the next day until the maintenance man returned and just cracked the windows. The pool area was nice and clean. They had a continental breakfast in the morning. There was parking outside the building as well as a parking garage below which appeared to be heated. The king bed was super comfy. It was close to places to eat. A couple members of the front desk staff didn't give me the warm fuzzy feeling but overall it was a nice, clean and modern place that we would stay at again.

Room Tip: If you don't want to see the interstate choose a lake view room. We had our blinds closed most o...

We stayed in a 1 bedroom penthouse suite and it was average. Very spacious. It was on the top floor which was nice however, beware if you're a light sleeper or go to sleep early. The walls are INCREDIBLY thin. We could hear every conversation, cough, nose blow, door closing, blender, toilet flush, etc from the room below us. We could even hear the people walking hard, which, considering we were above them was crazy. The toiletries were half used but the room itself was clean.

Only half the tv channels in the bedroom worked although they did send maintenance up, he couldn't figure out how to fix it. It wasn't a big deal to us so we didn't ask again for a fix.

We had a spectacular view and it was great to be right on the lake.

few rooms, for a wedding party/guests, were not ready until 4 or 4:30.
on our 2nd day, the cleaning staff showed up at 5:00...sorry, we were getting ready for a wedding / night out (should have come during the day!)
Rooms were nice, clean...nice beds, sheets, pillows, towels. Even had small pkg of makeup remover in the bathroom:)

Complimentary breakfast excellent variety...make your own waffles, 3 cereals, apples, bananas, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, donuts, english muffins, bagels, coffee (with flavored creamers!!), oj, apple juice, milk. Yum!!

Nice underground parking in case outdoor parking was full, which it often was. Great view of the lake (if you get that side of the resort)

What a great view of the lake, I can step out on the deck and see the great Minnesota Lake. You can see the view of Bay Port, ships, boats, people, ect... My room reminds me of a fancy studio. Only down fall is breakfast, you can better breakfast at some Country Inn.

We stayed in the one bedroom deluxe suite, facing the water. It's hard to get any better than an oversized window staring right at Lake Superior. The suite was exceptionally clean, and the kitchenette was a nice bonus, although we didn't really end up using it. Loved the gas fireplace that came on with the heat, it added a nice cozy touch. Absolutely I would stay here again. It is a little pricey if you don't find the right discount, but overall, I would say the cost is worth it.

My husband planned our stay at the Beacon Pointe for my birthday. It couln't have been any better! The room - a Deluxe room facing the water - was spacious, quiet and had a beautiful view of not only Lake Superior, but also the aerial lift bridge and Canal Park area. We didn't walk anywhere, but could have walked to Canal Park or to any of a number of restaurants, including Valentini's, Fitgers and the Pickwick. On Sundary morning as we were packing to leave, we spotted a large shipping vessel coming from the north. Within an hour it was right in front of our room - what a site! We will definitely be back - and will bring binoculars with us next time! :)
