“What a waste”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

If you don't mind stairs, or not waking up to sirens...No coffee pot or blow dryer in the room, and the beds are close to the floor! Cramped space around the bed on the wall side...carpet is in fair condition, ripped screens on windows. They do offer coffee in the registration area. It was fairly quiet, but the location is not so great and the missing 'perks' of a 'normal' motel really wasn't worth it. I rated "service" as average because we only asked for towels and did get them. We won't stay here again,

Room Tip: Don't bother

We stayed at the hotel this past week-end. Even though the motel was a block or so from I35, our second floor room was extremely quiet. Their $3 per day charge for WiFi was much less than most motels. A nice restaurant is on the other side of their parking lot. The room was clean and really a good value.

Stayed for two nights, the room was not cleaned on the 2nd day.
We received a non-smoking room but it smelled very strong for cigarette smoke as well as the hallways and entryways.
Staff was helpful but not overly friendly. Its not a horrible Motel but it can definitely be better. Wouldn't stay here longer than a night or two.
Cable tv, had to pay for wifi. Free coffee was in entryway.

If you are looking for a clean place to sleep, this is the play. There are no frills here. There isn't even any shampoo in the bathroom. The mid-week price is right, but it goes up $40 on the weekends and is not worth that price.

The staff was courteous and the hotel was neat and clean. Not in a good part of town, and next to a very expensive place to eat! No breakfast of any kind was offered.

We called every hotel and they were sold out so we are forced to stay here. Starting off our room reeked like smoke. We found dead bugs in the bathroom, and pubic hairs on the nightstand. Along with no blankets in our room. Personally I would rather sleep in the gas station bathroom. Please go somewhere else or sleep in your car if u have too!!!

Worst place on our trip around lake Superior. Unfortunatly this was our first night stop. The place was grungy, EXPENSIVE for what you got. 100.00 for the night no breakfast,no coffee in the room and not very clean. just a nasty little hotel in a less than desirable area of town. The bed was like sleeping on plywwod, the air was cool at best and on a hot night not good. the desk person was very curt and straight to the point. not good

A pretty typical Motel 6 with minimal but adequate room, definitely the most economical place to stay in Duluth. WiFi was an extra $3.00 but even then the room was only about $53.00 total for one night. No coffee maker, refrigerator, or microwave, but coffee was available in the lobby (night clerk accommodated our early 4:00 AM departure by making coffee early) and TV and WiFi signal were good. Room was large and had two double beds, table and chairs, and a small but adequate bath. Driving time to the airport was @ 20 min., at least in the early morning hours. Would stay again, particularly if only for a limited time.
