This is not a resort and offers no true “resort” amenities. This is a $300+ a night one bedroom Homewood Suites. We chose it as there were very limited rooms in Duluth last weekend. As a whole, the stay was adequate.
Set your expectations accordingly based upon my review below. We are refined travelers that recognize bad/good/great/excellent and have stayed in all types of places. I am also a fair reviewer.
At the Beacon Pointe Resort we stayed on the third floor with no rooms above us. The bathroom, kitchen and bedroom were clean. The building was quiet at night.
This is a typical mid-grade hotel experience. The building materials are cheap but look nice. The walls are thin. The fold out bed was horribly uncomfortable for even our twin 8 year olds. The single bedroom had no windows...what is up with that? The sheets and blankets were thin and cheap. The swimming pool is 5 ft. deep, the hot tub tiny, and the fitness center so small you could barely turn around in it. I didn't look at the sauna.
There were some stains on the carpet and lots of black mold in the base of the shower/whirlpool tile. There were also cobwebs in the light shades.
The morning breakfast was your typical continental with a waffle maker as the main attraction. The bananas were really brown (who put this out?) and the overall selection of fruit/breads/yogurt was so -so.
The staff was young and very nice. I didn’t complain about anything so I don’t know how they would have responded.
We never used the kitchen for more than coffee. It was clean. If you brought groceries and stayed in at night the $300+ value may have been better. We spent very little time in the unit.
If this is what you expect for your stay at Beacon Pointe, you will be fine.
