Over the years I've found Motel 6 to be a consistent value. They're virtually always clean, reasonably priced and comfortable but nothing fancy and no amenities at all. This is no different. Having stayed at the Duluth Motel 6 several times the prices vary according to the time of year and I've paid from $38/night to $48/night. There's no view of the lake and the tv is technically "cable" but it's only the local television stations brought in on a cable. There's no expanded cable such as ESPN, CNN, or anything like that. Just the local television affiliates, ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, WB & PBS, so TV is not good for a tv watcher like me. There's no premium channels like HBO or anything. However it is an improvement from the days when Motel 6 charged $.75/night extra for B&W TV! It's close to fast food and a restaurant or two. It's not the greatest part of town but it's OK. There's not a lot of parking for the number of rooms. Rooms are good sized, especially for the price. No coffee, microwave, refrigerator or anything in room, but usually they'll have a pot in the office for a couple of hours in the morning with the smallest styrofoam cups I've ever seen! But all in all, it's a good value for a night's sleep. It's certainly not a relax and vacation room, nor is it a romantic surrounding. Arrive, watch the news, sleep and move on, or if you're spending the day touring the many attractions in the area, you'll find Motel 6 a good value. My next trip there, I plan to check out some of the other motels in the area that are comparably priced and at least have a lake view. I've stayed at better places and worse places but Motel 6 is consistent and clean so I usually will go for one when I just look for a night's sleep.

Staying here several times, this is a great spot to stay if you're looking to be close to downtown. They are really nice, clean, quiet...and CHEAP! A good restraunt is next door, and you're two minutes from Canal Park .. without the price!

For the price, it was great! We stayed in a $70+ room the night before in Fargo, ND, and I actually liked this one better. It was the first weekend in March of 2005, and we paid just over $25 for the room! Plus, if people get into a fight with knives in the parking lot, the rooms closest to the drama get 25% off! Entertainment and savings!

We just spent 5 nights here and found it quite clean and comfortable, plus very economically priced. We paid $35.99 a night for two double beds. They have no pool/whirlpool etc and no extras. There are no kleenex in the room, no radio alarm clocks. They do have cable tv with HBO and the rooms are very large with table and chairs. The rooms were clean and the maid service was great. The location is also very nice--right next door is a 24 hour convenience store/gas station, a Burger King and an Embers. The beds were a bit too firm for us but you can't beat the price. I would recommend this to anyone on a budget!
