Excellent Breakfast, enjoyable pool and hot tub. Location is close to Duluth without the high downtown prices. Close to many attractions.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2010

Stayed two nights and enjoyed the amenities-Spirit Mountain view was nice and trains passing occasionally werent a big deal, in fact, our son enjoyed it. Only downside was uncomfortable sleeper sofa, but that's always hit and miss anyway. Workout room was small and the treadmill could stand updating, but that and the eliptical were functional so that's what matters. Breakfast was nice and had adequate choices.
Staff was extremely friendly and helpful at check-in. Would recommend if you want a nice place at a fair price.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2010

After checking in we went to our rooms and found out that one wasn't made yet. We called and within 5 minutes they gave us 2 new rooms. Our room was OK but the other had some minor things like a missing light bulb and the sink hardly drained. But we all had a good night's sleep and that is why we came. Breakfast in the lobby due to renovation of the breakfast room.

The hotel was what we expected--clean, in a good location, and with good service. However, the pool was very cold and hot tub was lukewarm at best. The desk manager said she was unable to adjust the temp--no wonder no one was using the beautiful pool area. The fan in our bathroom did not work, which eventually led to the steam from our shower setting off the smoke alarm in the room. I learned that the hotel manager had been aware of this situation, and hadn't yet fixed it. Could have been dangerous, and that room probably should not have been used.

We would like to take the time to apologize for the inconvenience of the maintenance issues you've experienced at this location. We have immediately implemented methods to ensure that there are no further instances with the heating of our pool area. The problem you experienced with the fan in your was a mechanical issue that we were working on during the time of your stay and have since fixed.
We appreciate the feedback and hope that upon your next visit, we can meet or exceed your expectations.

This is a nice hotel in a wonderful location. However, this hotel may have had some water damage recently. Our room had a faint smell of carpet that had been dried out. In addition, the rooms that should be used for breakfast were closed up and breakfast was in a small area in the lobby. Most people had to take their food back to their rooms as there was no room to eat. I felt that this hotel was overpriced considering this water problem. I would not recommend this hotel until the problem is solved

This is a solid choice if you're looking for a clean, comfortable, reasonably priced hotel and the Canal Park area isn't an option. The hotel is located at the same exit as the overlook/tourist info station on Hwy 35 - about 10 minutes to Canal Park with the road construction.

This is an average chain hotel but the customer service is quite good. The front desk people were friendly and quick at check-in and check-out. All of the staff I passed in the halls and elevator were friendly and said hello.

The fridge and microwave in the room were nice.

I rated the sleep quality low because the beds were too hard for us, but that's just personal preference. The room was quiet except for one night when we had the window open and heard a lot of traffic noise. With the window shut, though, it wasn't noticeable.

If you can get past the quirky country styling (somehow I think some can't) this was a nice place. Fairly comfortable room, quiet, and though it didn't matter, it was nice it was away from Duluth.
