AmericInn Lodge & Suites Tofte - Lake Superior

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 23, 2011

I was pleasantly surprised at how well this hotel has been maintained through the years. Last time I visited was about ten years ago though I frequent Americinns both in Minnesota and Wisconsin. The lobby was warm and cozy and it seems they updated the paint colors. The hotel staff esoecially the man in charge was top notch clean. He made sure breakfast tables were cleaned up and he was friendly as well. We were welcomed on our late arrival with a "Boy, am I gladbto see you!". Checkin was fast and courteous! The pool is beautifully kept and a pleasure to see the grandkids swimming in such a pleasant environment. Only downfall was it was hard to connect with cell phone service and the lobby computer could be updated! Will I return? Absolutely! Thanks Americinn for another great stay and good value!

We stayed here with my parents and my kids and had a great time! They have adjoining rooms on the second floor which was really nice. I think there is only one set of adjoining rooms on the second floor so keep that in mind. We loved the lobby, decor and they have a lovely breakfast in the morning. There are not that many restaurant choices in Tofte but the Coho Cafe is excellent and had wonderful wait staff! Great stay and will be back again!

Room Tip: one set of adjoining rooms on second floor, not many restaurant choices so keep that in mind...

Good hotel for short stays with family. Indoor pool was great and lobby is spacious. About 7 miles from Lutsen Mountain for skiing and an easy drive. Bluefin Bay resort is across the street and the restaurant was a little pricey but the food was excellent.

Included breakfast was bare bones at best - ran out of waffle batter one day and donuts the next. The hotel was packed but they knew that in advance and hopefully can plan better next time.

King Jacuzzi Suite is not a suite but a large room with a jacuzzi - deceptive label as I usually think of a suite having a separate bedroom. Another lesson to ask first.

Minor irritant: TomTom location is about one mile south

Staff was freindly and responsive - I will stay again when in the neighborhood

We stayed for a night while skiing at Lutsen Mountains. Rooms clean and comfortable. Pool was clean and inviting. Everything worked as it is supposed to. Lobby very comfortable and large. Included breakfast was a treat for every one. Best of all... great value. I will stay there again.

Loved the Americinn in Tofte! This is our 5th time staying here and each time is getting better. We joined their Preferred Customer program and received a "free upgrade upon check in". We had a double standard room upgraded to a double queen suite with in room hot tub. The breakfast was great and the lounge was super comfortable--we sat downstairs had a complimentary cup of tea and read the complimentary local paper by the stone fireplace on the plush leather couches. Ahhhh! We did not want to leave but at least we will definitely be back!

The AmericInn in Tofte MN is typical US roadside motel. It is located across the 2-lane highway from Lake Superior but does not offer views of the lake. Our room was simple and clean, showed a bit of wear and tear, but definitely was good value for the money spent. The room price included wireless Internet service, continental breakfast, and use of the lobby with its inviting gas fireplace. Note: our ATT/Cingular cell phone would not work in Tofte. It felt very unusual to be without cell coverage.

There is a wonderful restaurant called the Bluefin located just across the street. In busy season, reservations would be necessary.

Because of good service and good value during our initial stay, we made a reservation to go back to the AmericInn in Tofte a week later after our planned canoe trip. When arrived a week later we learned that Internet service to the hotel had been disabled due to a lightning strike two days earlier. Even though it was after the no-refunds hour, we asked to change to a different property in order to have Internet access. Staff obliged and found us other accommodations.

We had stayed in this motel in the past, but it was a newer motel on our last visit. The front desk said it is to be remodeled in the future. The personnel at the front desk were very nice. Breakfast was ok.

I was aware of the smoking policy rooms and missed the policy where pets are able to stay there. So while we were in a room that was nonsmoking; it was close to rooms that were not. We noticed the smoke filled hallways on the day we left since they appear to be airing out these rooms next to us.
Pets (dogs) were left in the room during the day and you could hear them barking. There were areas of lawn I wouldn't walk on since this was a place the owners walked their dogs.

The mattresses were old and the decor outdated so with the future remodeling changes they seem to plan; this might change. The rooms did not appear real clean, but again this could be partial due to the dingy decor. Carpets in the hallways were stained and dirty in some areas of the motel.

I believe we would look to stay at a smoke free/pet free motel on the north shore in the future. We had recently stayed at the Hyatt downtown Chicago and what a difference for just a few dollars more. Nicely decorated, smoke free, new high quality queen mattresses with plush linen and a nice view of the city. We felt we really got a good value for the price we paid for this room.
