“Welcoming atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

Large, easy to use parking lot for a big truck. Tea and coffee available in the lobby which was nice on a cold night. Looks like a nice pool for the kids. Plenty of outlets for electronic devices. We like that the sink area is outside of the bathroom.

Americinns are always consistently a good value regardless of where we have stayed and we have stayed with them often because of course they are such a good value. Clean, comfortable, available in so many places.

We arrived late one night and we were given a clean room. Pool was closed because we got there too late. Service and quality is what you would expect from an American Inn. Owner told me he had seen black bears in the area the week before but they don't bother anyone.

I have never been up to silver bay or have driven up hwy 61 north of Duluth. What a pleasant surprise to find such a great hotel in such a beautiful part of the world. We were greeted with a warm welcome, dropped out luggage and relaxed in the hot tub. We arrived after 10pm, so the water park had shut down and it was quiet in the pool area. The rooms are cozy and I slept like a log. Breakfast in the morning was good with a lot of variety to satisfy everyone's taste. I will definately plan a trip up the north shore in future years.

We had a upgraded lake view suite. The room setup was very nice, it had 2 separate living area, 1 with a bed and once with a hide a bed. There were nice, flat screen TV with many channels to choose from in each area. It also had a balcony with a background view of the lake. The water park/ pool area is very nice and a great source of entertainment for children and adults. I could not hear people in the halls or the neighbors. The bedding was very nice and comfortable. This is a good location to stay for seeing all of the tourist sights of the north shore. The area is very quiet and secluded. The breakfast was above average with plenty of quality, free coffee throughout the day!

My complaints: The kind lady behind the desk appears flustered by ringing phones, kids demanding pictures, towels, check ins, information etc. There was often 3-6 people in line. When talking with her, she said they were short staffed. I put that on management and feel it was unacceptable and decreased customer service. I also thought the bathroom (toilets specifically) were a bit dirty/ outdated. The toilet seat was loose and some stale urine odor was noticed. I also noticed a pretty loud, obnoxious noise whenever the water was turned on or toilet flushing. It woke me up twice.

Overall, the positives definitely out weighed the negative!

Room Tip: Lakeview rooms offer a nice view of the lake from a distance and outstanding views of the lake for s...

This hotel served our needs. We were looking for a place to stay for one night with a pool. Our children were too young for the blue slide but the older one enjoyed the frog slide. The breakfast was as expected. The front desk staff was friendly.

I had booked through Expedia and didn't even realize it! That may sound ignorant, but you really have to watch what you click on to make reservations, and evidently I didn't pay much attention! Before we left on our vacation, I decided to call this hotel directly just to make sure they had my reservation. They did, but after talking to the gal at the desk, she cancelled the Expedia reservation and booked the hotel for us. I did ask for a lake view room and upon arrival, they did not have us in a lake view room. The lady and gentleman at the desk were very customer friendly and upgraded us to a two room suite lake view room, which we really appreciated. (We are members of their rewards program). There is also an elevator, which not all Americinns have. We chose this Americinn as it was midway along the north shore. That worked well for us. Our room was clean and the beds comfortable--even the pillows and we always bring our own. The breakfast was good--waffles, hard boiled eggs and egg patties, bacon or sausage, rotating the meats as well as biscuits and gravy. Had COLD milk, which I love, yogurt, pastries, muffins, bagels and cream cheese, breads, cereals--hot and cold, and even sugar free syrup, which is not often available. The problem mentioned by other reviewers of not having enough places for people to sit for breakfast has been addressed, as there are also tables set up in the area by the fireplace. We stayed 4 nights and had no problems finding seating. Coffee, flavored creamers, etc. is available 24/7 near the front desk and was good. We had a balcony on our room which was nice and also appreciated. There is a fire pit, grill and picnic table available for guests. The only thing I could find to improve on would be the shower head. Small and not much water pressure, but the towels are thick and big so that made up for it! We would definitely come back to this Americinn.

Room Tip: Stay on second or third level lakeside if you want to see the lake.
