Reviewed June 17, 2012

The location of the motel was nice and convenient. It was only a five minute drive to Canal Park, close to highway 35, next to a gas station and places to eat. However it was also located next to a truck company so it was noisy in the morning. The room was clean and had the basic bed and tv. Our room didn't have a refrigerator. It was also inconvenient because there was no hair dryer and there were only limited channels on tv. You will also have to pay an extra $2.99/day for access to wifi at the motel. Overall I would say that if you don't plan on staying in the motel for long it is a good rate and location for a short weekend getaway.

Room Tip: Get a room not facing the truck company, it might be less noisy in the mornings if you are not an ea...

Get ready for this one, I'm a traveling musician, I stay in a lot of hotels...and this is by far the worst. My band stayed here because we played at cylde iron works and its super close...but its not worth it. The staff had barely a clue how to process credit cards. The room was filthy. Garbage in the bed, gum on the wall, not vacuumed. On top of that thru have security roaming the halls because past bad instances...which I won't get into. Do yourself a favor and go ANYWHERE else....

This was the first time we had stayed at this motel. It was extremely clean, but really plain. If you aren't looking for all the bells and whistles, this is the place! There is no fridge, microwave, coffee maker or hair dryer. There was one queen bed, one night table, 2 chairs and a table, a TV and a phone in our room. The carpet was obviously not old because it was clean and the bedding was clean as well. There were no bed bugs. This motel shares a parking lot with the Duluth Grill (which has been featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives) which has great organic beef burgers, salads and their famous banana cream pie! The area seems a bit sketchy, but it was fine. We were there on a Saturday night and there were no problems. The motel is a short drive to downtown, as well as up the hill to the mall. We would recommend this to any traveller that is looking for an inexpensive and clean motel, with tax the room was $70 for two adults.

We have stayed at this Duluth, MN Motel 6 a few times over the past 3 years and we are never disappointed. Each time, the staff is great and the room is very clean. This time we got a room with new carpeting which was a plus and we discovered the free coffee in the lobby and it was very good. As with all Motel 6 locations, it is very basic, you'll need to bring your own hairdryer, shampoo, facial tissue, etc. It's got a great central location and is right off the freeway so it makes getting around the city very easy. The motel is behind a gas station/Burger King and also a wonderful restaurant: The Duluth Grill, their pancakes & fresh squeezed O.J. are amazing. If you want a budget priced motel, you won't be disappointed with this Motel 6!

We booked this hotel last minute for an overnight stay, it was cheap, and close to my evenings activities (Clyde Ironworks, 1 1/2 blocks away)
Lobby was a little sketchy, check in was quick and easy.
The room was quite possibly the most featureless room I've ever been in.
Here's what you get: A place to hang a few things mounted on the wall, a light wood colored combo dresser/desk/tv stand, Ice bucket, 4 plastic cups, 19" standard definition tube type tv with remote control, queen bed, one nightstand (no alarm clock), a 3' x 3' table 2 chairs, 2 bars of soap,and a few towels.
It felt very sparse and plain, but it provided me with a clean, warm, fairly safe place to rest my head for the night.

We were looking for something cheap for the weekend so we weren't expecting much...good thing! It wasn't bad... it wasn't great, but what do you really expect for the money? Location is ok, considering the surrounding area looks a little rundown but great access to all the major routes and takes no time at all to really get anywhere in Duluth. Bathtub was NOT clean and the room had obviously been just deoderized before we checked in (everytime after that when we left and came back we could only smell feet...and not our feet) but nothing that a little window opening couldn't fix. All in all, it's a place to crash. If you're planning on spending a lot of time in your hotel room this is not the place to go...but who travels to the beautiful city of Duluth and wants to sit in their hotel room anyway?? :)

Old, worn and filthy!! The blankets had cigarette burns in them and didn't look clean, the mattresses were grossly stained, the bathroom had hairs on the toliet, and the carpet could not have been vacuumed.
