I was in Duluth for a conference This hotel did not disappoint Located next to the left bridge and canal park, great for not having to drive anywhere

Service was prompt and friendly I had two different rooms (one with and one without a balcony) for my stay and the transition from room to room was easy Both rooms were clean up on entry Stay came with breakfast It was a decent breakfast, I was able to pick up biscuits and gravy, sausage link and eggs with cheese Hotel has a pool with a spa and a small fitness facility This hotel is kid friendly, pets are not allowed Also, cleaning service is not daily, but you can leave a hanger on your door to request it if needed I would recommend this hotel if you are staying in Duluth and want to be close to Canal Park and the convention center

Erin Neste

Beautiful property in a great location in Canal Park! Our room was clean, spacious, and quiet with a great view of the lake Easy access to boardwalkWe spent time in the pool and hot tubs

Very clean and well stocked with towelsThe front desk and breakfast crews were courteous and helpfulWe only stayed one night, but wish we could have stayed longer!

Jared Little

This was a great place to stayThe lake view is 5+ starsThe rooms are nice, clean, and up to date

Staff were friendly and helpful Breakfast options were ok Not bad but okI give it 4 stars because of the price For the price I would have expected more comfortable beds, nicer pool, and a much better breakfastDo get me wrong, this is a great place with great views I just think for two queen beds at $400 for one night I expected a little more comfort

Liza G.

Loved everything about this place Beautiful room,we had a 2 queen city view, with a couch,desk,coffee table and all the works The shops,restaurants and bars were so fun to explore and enjoy,all inside a huge complex without ever going outside

We had a cup of coffee in the morning compliments of the inn and enjoyed it outside as we took a walk on the beautiful lakeside trail that borders lake superior So much to look at and enjoy!

Brendle Corpman

Historic hotel meets an updated shopping experience! First time staying and was blown away by the awesome history and wonderful hometown shopping with quaint boutique shops with local fare Dog friendly also! Right on the lake Had dinner at the Boat House and the food was handmade and absolutely delicious! Plus the view of the lake was breath-taking! Then spent some time at the spa and had one the best message I have ever had! The spa is wonderful

Lunch at the Mexican restaurant before leaving, again, the food was delicious!

Nakole Simmer

Me and my husband spent a weekend here and everything about it was wonderful from the second we checked in to the minute we left The building is beautiful, so many great amenities and places to explore close by The room was clean and spacious

Great food and views from around the building The customer service was by far the best experience we’ve had at any hotel, everyone was so helpful and friendly, we felt like royalty I would go back here in a second and recommend it to anyone and everyone

Wow, this place is beautiful!! It is very clean, the staff were welcoming and the views of Lake Superior (especially when ships were coming in) were perfect Plus, this location has underground parking (first come first serve) with no additional fee!My husband and I did splurge and got the penthouse view/Suite, and it was worth it! Very spacious, clean, and it has a private balcony, plus a jacuzzi in a separate room that overlooks Lake Superior (but far away from the shore, so people won’t see you)I can’t wait for when we can go again!

Fry Logna

My wife and I stayed on the third floor with a lake facing room over Easter weekend and it was absolutely amazing (The views were breathtaking and a huge reason we selected this establishment) That being said the room was very clean and well kept and everything you would hope for in a room

While staff contact was minimal for our stay they were always super friendly and more then happy to accommodate any request/question we had An added bonus is they have under ground parking which is a lovely bonus as we could park and take an elevator right to our room and didn’t have to worry about heating the car up the one day it snowed 10 out of 10 experience with Beacon Pointe and would recommend this to anyone looking to be captivated by stunning views of Superior and a cozy rcute room!

Will

We were trying to find a place to stay in Duluth After reading review after review about dirty, understaffed hotels we decided to roll the dice and try staying hereGreat choice! It was great

The desk person was very busy, but they were always helpfulParking was fantastic because all the rooms are about thirty seconds from the front doorIt was super easy to get back and forth between Beacon Pointe and Canal Park—on foot or by carBeautiful viewsExtremely nice pool area It’s a small pool, but it was very clean, everything was the right temperature, and they have a sauna, hot tub and poolWe will be back!

Aa Ason

The Endion Station was originally in the Endion neighborhood, but moved to this spot and preserved It has served many functions since then At first it was touris information, then it was a cafe

For a while it was a sporting equipment store, with bikes and kayaks Then I believe it was a restaurant for a short while, until finally ending up as this Inn

Jansen VanLin

Better than staying in the nearby hotels The rooms are modern, very clean, and cozy Rates when we stayed were lower due to the construction on the shore but we were gone during the day so we didn’t mind at all! Parking was convenient, even with the construction

If you have an electric vehicle the free chargers are right in the parking lotWill definitely make this the first place I check next time I’m booking a place to stay in Duluth

A lot of construction was ongoing when we were there, but look forward to seeing what the place looks like when it is all done Looks like it is getting a nice new face lift!Staff was very nice Rooms were decent

Gave me a place to lay my head at night at least Big pool area and the kids seemed to enjoy Restaurant was alsonpretty good Their fish and chips were delicious Great place to stay if you want to visit the Duluth area and avoid the prices and traffic of the downtown Very easy and quick drive to downtown Duluth as well There was a nice little beach just down the street as well I do recommend and will likely be staying here again!

Mitchell Alexon

Ordered their special in the restaurant and despite not being much of a fish eater I would order that again!! 10/10 best fish I’ve ever had 😋WARMED POOL, Hot tub and an even hotter sauna! Cannot go wrong taking a dip in any of themHad a blast throwing some darts in the bar at the end of the night

The shower in the room is a little shorter than the average person So a slight squat was required :(And the breakfast was very disappointing

Adriene Daniel

Our FIRST visit was a SUCCESS!!!!Everything about this hotel we read about online, is TRUE! Great location, amenities, staff, food options, the Continental Breakfast!When booking I mentioned our 1st wedding is approaching We entered our water view room and found some chilled champagne, glasses and and LOVELY card with a hand written note!How generous and kind!The pool, hot tub and sauna were a lovely bonus!Some parking lot construction was happening and yet, we were safe, parking was ample and this will all be completed and soon!WE THANK YOU Barker’s Inn!Seeya again!

My family stayed for 2 night here, very nice and clean hotel Every staff member we spoke with were so kind and friendly! Breakfast was great – had something for everyone And the pool was so much fun with the slide and the little splash pad area! My kids are already asking when we get to come back! Thank you so much for the great adventure, we will be back for more!

Jenny Hoffman

Called ahead to confirm that my son could have a few friends come and use the pool during our stay for his bday party At check in was informed no we could not have anyone in the room or pool that is not registered to the room And that pool time was only available with a sign in ahead for pool time and for 2 hours

So party was switched to another place Room cancelled Will not stay here or support this business Front desk did not believe I called ahead and was rude

Madi Ihrke-Shold

My partner and I stayed here 2 nights and it was definitely the best hotel experience we’ve ever had I have pretty bad diagnosed ocd, and going to hotels can be incredibly stressful because I am very afraid of contamination This hotel is exceptionally clean, which was my biggest fear with this trip

Every surface in the building was very clean and looked modern and welcomingHighlights:-Extreme cleanliness-The hotel was very quiet, we rarely ever even heard other people from our room It almost felt like we were there alone despite a full parking lot-Breakfast was amazing They have good quality food and they don’t pack up right away when it closes, so you don’t have to worry about getting down there early They continued to refill their food even up to and past their breakfast closing time-Felt very safe My partner and I are a visably queer couple and we never felt unsafe in this hotel The doors also have deadbolts, stoppers, and peep hole covers Room doors automatically deadbolt and are pretty heavy-Big bathroom and shower Overall everything looked very nice and felt high qualityDownsides:-My biggest thing is that they don’t give you a lot in your room You get 2 rolls of toilet paper, 1 bath towel, 2 servings of coffee and 2 cups, along with some bags The room comes with some nice things like large bottles of soap in the shower, your standard iron, etc But you’d think that when booking for 2 adults for 2 nights you’d get more than 1 towel and 2 cups If we would’ve stayed longer then we would’ve needed to constantly ask the front desk for things You can request room service, but it has to be before 11 am They really don’t provide you with a lot-The bed was a bit hard and I would’ve preferred more supportive pillows, but you can request extra upon booking-Pretty lightweight bedding We requested an extra blanket and was given one that felt more like a foam pad?? It was weird Bring a weighted blanket if you need any kind of physical pressure to sleep-Not a lot of room storage One small closet and 2 dresser drawers total in the room-The fitness center looked nice and they do have laundry machines But the pool is lacking It’s incredibly small and shallow and there’s no hot tub I can’t imagine anyone going there for fun or exercise – honestly I’m not sure what the point of it isOverall it was an incredibly pleasant stay, and we will definitely be staying there again I would’ve really liked if they offered more, but what they do offer is of high quality If you’re looking for a safe, clean, and comfortable place to stay I would recommend this place 🙂

I was surprised how much I liked this hotel! I thought it might be loud, being downtown, or too busy, or small rooms

But none of that was true! The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, the location was great, the views from the lakeside rooms were really cool (we watched a ship come in and the bridge go down)! We liked the pool and the hot tub, and the pool area was nice! The room was clean and mostly well-stocked, and the one thing we needed we were able to get very quickly and easily The room was spacious and comfortable Parking was free and covered and seemed very safe Check in and check out were simple and we were able to get in and out easily We were a short drive from Canal Park and from almost everything else!

Maura L

We only stayed one night and got to town late but located in downtown this was a pretty good location for us It was very quiet surprisingly Very nice staff

Free parking in their parking garages There’s a restaurant on level 2 that was pretty good with nice employees as well Dove is the brand of soap, shampoo and conditioner in the rooms Would recommend this location if you’re in the area

My family stayed for a week and had an enjoyable experience We had a suite on the 3rd floor, with a king size bed in the main bedroom room and two doubles in the room closest to the hall Our room had a terrific view of Lake Superior with a nice little balcony

It’s an older property and could use some updating You can really see the age in the bathroom and furnishings in the room, but was clean and comfortable They offer a hot breakfast with a standard offering of scrambled eggs, rotation of potatoes and/or sausage, and waffles The also have an attached conference center, which could be very useful for business travelersThe staff was pleasant, but shied away from engaging with us unless asked a direct question Could be that they see so many tourists that they may be experiencing a little burn out Grandma’s Marathon was the week following our visit, so they could be focused on that as well Either way, they were professionalThe real selling point is its location You’re right in the middle of everything with most of the shops and restaurants being within walking distance You also have access to the excellent walking path that runs along the lake If you’re staying in Duluth, they are definitely worth a look

sarra torborg-johnson

Our family has visited this hotel several times over the years – it used to be our favorite one to stay at in Canal Park However, with our visit this weekend, the steep decline in upkeep and service was evident the moment we arrived It is clear they are not investing in the upkeep of the building and furnishings

room only moderately clean and quite run down others in our party had mold in their rooms (1st floor) The buffet used to help justify the high price of this hotel, however, the buffet was only about 25% of what it used to be not as many options offered, staff was not quick to refill during breakfast hours, ran out of many items certainly nothing special any longer This hotel used to have a luxury quality to it happy hour in the gathering space, sometimes live music, extras here and there this is not the case any longer To top it off, the night security staff is rude, aggressive and one of them seems very off staring at guests, going into women’s bathroom unnecessarily, entering hotel rooms during his shift, and lingering around young girls repeatedly (in hot tub and hallways, etc) I reported this, and was assured he was leaving that day, only to find him back at his shenanigans the next evening We felt very unsafe and feel the management is not addressing an issue that needs to be addressed here

EMS USA

Room was clean, quiet Breakfast area bright, beautiful view and roomy Breakfast was a disappointment

2 mornings with no sausage, eggs or potatoes Just cold cereal, sweet muffins etc Also no knives There were 2 people in the breakfast area that appeared to not be too busy The day they did have scrambled eggs and potatoes they were barely warm Don’t advertise what you don’t serve For the money the breakfast was a huge disappointment

A beautiful place to stay! It was so cool to stay on park point, the view of the lift bridge from our room was great I have previously stayed in canal park but will stay at this place moving forward since it was more low key and in my opinion nicer rooms The staff is fantastic – I accidentally left something behind in my room and gave them a call to discuss the situation

The person in charge of house keeping found my item shortly after and the manager at the front desk set everything up to ship my item back to me! I am really impressed and will be sure to stay again when I return to Duluth Highly recommend

Robert Riggs

Very disappointing This room cost $350 a night Paid extra for a harbor view (parking lot and boat slips)

The room was smaller than one at My Place which costs 1/3 as much, and includes a full size refrigerator and stove burners Take note of the pictures I posted The stain is from before I entered the room What I kept forgetting was I was in a Motel 6 maskerading as a Marriott No room service, no kleenex, a few sheets of toilet paper, no plastic water cups All these things had to be begged for at the front desk Of course everything was blamed on COVID Getting to be the optimal excuse for corporate incompetence and greed The manager said they can’t find help I went to several restaurants that seemed to have the employees they needed The reality is they won’t pay help Don’t waste your money, stay away from Marriott

curtis thompson

I’ve stayed at Marriott properties from Aukland to Aberdeen and the service at this hotel was awfulWe arrived very late, about 2:00, after being stuck at the airport and having a weird, cold and uncomfortable cab ride When we picked up the phone by the door the young lady at the door insisted on checking if we had a reservation before letting us in from the cold

Safety? No When I asked her if to they had rooms available for people without reservations she acquiesced and let us in to be hotel Terrible first impression Then we had to wait 15 minutes in the lobby because the system had to rebootThe property is nice but the staff obviously needs some hospitality trainingNot a fan

Fairly new building, very clean and modern and in a nice area We found the beds to be extremely comfortable It’s got a very nice dining area and breakfasts include a wide variety of items, all very well prepared

The parking lot is well lit, and my wife and I felt very safe It’s right across the highway from some very nice walking paths that follow the shoreline It’s approximately 6 miles from Canal Park, which is about a 15 minute drive

All I can say is WOW Hotel is very clean and updated The staff is 110 %attentive

They go overboard to make your stay pleasant The breakfast is opened on time if not early for any early birds that may be around getting an early start Great food and plenty of it The prices are very competitive with the other hotels in the area Located in a great area that gets you close to the attractionsIf staying for a length of time, be prepared to be treated like family Even with folks on short stays, I notice the staff treating guest with professionalism and even going above and beyond with helping you with any needs that may arise I needed an envelope and stamps, they were out of stamps And I was given one from there own personal possession to help me get er done!!! This staff as a whole is awesome When I return… this is my go to place Thank you Hampton Inn

Becca at the front desk was a treat to work with – planning a special surprise for us on arrival She sprang to action and made it so easy! That service is rare, but so appreciated when you get someone who truly cares about crafting an excellent customer experience!We’ll recommend this place to everyone we know who stays in Superior!

We needed a motel on a busy July weekend in Duluth AmericInn accommodated us very well!Nice rooms, quiet, nice pool and hot tub, breakfast was medium good, and the restaurant delivered a tasty supper for us with minimum wait timeOne downfall is – no elevator – but we often use the stairs anywaysThanks again!

Michael Walsburg

Filthy hotel Broken microwave and phone cord was cut Stayed 4 nights was charged 120

00 for our dogs Leslie at the front desk turned all ugly when asked about the UBS port in the room They don’t have any Ice machine was broke laundry was out of order This was by far the most expensive place for what you gotAlso outside siding is rotted and has holes in it The owners are not investing in this property at all I expect next year it will be an America s best value Oh don’t think you will have maid service

Emily Noelle

I’ve stayed here quite a few times and I truly cannot say enough good things about this hotel! Their prices are so reasonable compared to all the hotels in Duluth and they don’t require a two night minimum stay during the summer time like most of those money hungry hotels in Duluth I almost don’t want anyone to know about them because we’ve had such good luck with them 10/10 would recommend ☺️

We loved our stay for our anniversary! Our room had a jacuzzi, fireplace, stunning bay window view, balcony, and beautiful high ceilings We had the best time being able to walk right to the pier, Grandma’s, and Rocky Mountain Chocolate Shop I truly am sad to leave but I can’t wait to come back!! 100% 10/10 recommend! Oh and the staff was super nice and friendly

We’re big fans of South Pier Inn! Location is fantastic The suites are amazing! Definitely worth the extra $ to have the big windows, the fireplace, and jacuzzi tub! Always clean and tidy Front desk is helpful and courteous

Breakfast items are available all day And, they even have a selection of DVDs to watch in the room We’ve stayed 3 times in the past couple years and can’t walt to stay more!

The location of the hotel is good for activities in canal Park It’s also close to superior street for shopping and nightlife The hotel itself had 1 of the 2 elevators operational

Our room was ok, the couch had stains on it and the shower curtain had mold on it The room just felt old like it needs to be updated The jacuzzi in the bedroom was nice at night The pool area was nice and the sauna was relaxing It wasn’t awful but we don’t plan to come back

I don’t know where to start, so many things about our stay Did not know it was pet friendly until we say a guy walk in with two cats and then barking dogs on leashes Also did not know the rooms are condominiums owned by private parties

Our room was dirty, floors, walls, couch, did not want to sit on the furniture The lobby was dirty, when we walked in at 2 in the afternoon they had a crew cleaning the carpet, my 1 1/2 year old granddaughter touched the bottom of the dirty pad of the carpet cleaner The elevators were dirty The pool had green mold/algae Everywhere you looked it was dirty and dingy The suite my kids stayed in smelled musty, the ceiling had a leak The shower curtain black mold and asked for a new one but never got one Our shower curtain moldy also Light bulbs in some lamps were burnt out We asked for sheets to cover the dirty couch and chairs The carpets were stained and filthy My son in law got a shock when he touched the lamp that wasn’t working Over all very scuzzy! Lack of concern from staffFacility neglected in every area Excuses from staff towards all the complaints We never got the condo that we booked, we got a one bedroom suite which was smaller The sheets were ripped and had holes I think the city needs to send an inspector over to check things out, sure it’s not up to code or health standards! Contact health department!

We were very disappointed in our stay Having stayed at this property before, we expected much more As we entered our room, after going back down to the desk to get a key card that worked, the first thing we noticed was a large sign on the dishwasher saying it was out of service

Then I went in to the bathroom and as I closed the door, the full length mirror fell off of the door Fortunately I caught it before it crashed to the floor and it did not break There was also a towel bar missingAdditionally, only one of 2 elevators was in service The rooms seemed clean, but some of the furniture in the suite was stained and looked horribleFor what ended up being a nearly $300 per night stay, we expected more and in my opinion, we should have received moreI would not recommend this property in it’s current state

The overall building outside and inside is VERY nice! We loved the aesthetic! We had such a good experience from check-in to check-out The front desk ladies were EXCEPTIONAL Also all of the other staff

The night before we were supposed to leave, we found out there was an issue with my car and it would not start We simply asked if anyone had any jumper cables or anything and they were more than happy to take the time to help us outside with my car I really, really appreciate that Everyone was really kind and attentiveOur room exceeded our expectations It was very clean Bed was super comfortable and the sheets were really soft I always have a hard time sleeping in hotels, but the pillows and everything was super comfy and I actually was able to sleep wellMy partner and I really enjoyed our stay – everything we were doing was not far at all, so it was a great location It was our first trip to Duluth/Superior and we definitely plan on coming back and staying at Boarders Inn & SuitesJust another HUGE thank you to the staff who helped us out with our car!!!! Y’all deserve a raise 😉

I was so surprised at the beauty of the lobby The wonderful fireplace was so inviting and the staff was there waiting to assist in any way they could GREAT staff!Beautiful activity area with pool, hot tub and sauna as well as a couple of exercise machines in a small room off the pool area

Breakfast in the morning and fresh coffee throughout the dayPlus I got a great price for all of these amenities! I would stay here again any time and had already recommended it to family before I had even left

Vikki Pink

Decently pricedNewly renovated main lobbyStaff was SUPER polite, kind & accommodating

Quick and easy pre check in done online saves timeMy only complaint is that my room smelled a bit like cigarette smoke upon entering even though most rooms I’ve seen have the no smoking signsI could’ve asked for a different one but I required a ground floor roomDecent location- easy to get to and has nice trails and paths nearbySeems like a safe enough areaGreat amenitiesRoom slightly dated but overall a decent stay

The wife and I came back to Duluth to experience Lake Superior when it was warmerWe had a really clean, comfortable room with a nice view of the lakeThis was the first time we stayed here, but in looking at the building during our time at the nearby beach, we decided we liked our room with no balcony over the rooms with a balcony as we felt rooms with no balcony had better views of the lake

With it being our first time, I had a lot of questions of the hotel staff and they were very patient with meThe one negative was our room didn’t have two chairs of the same type, but that could have been due to our getting a two queen bed room We had to get that kind because a king bed room with lake view was not available when I bookedWe will definitely come back if we have the chance

Catherine Glancy

My husband and I stayed on April 10th and had a wonderful night! Carrie was the super sweet front desk attendant who found us the perfect room, close to my sister’s room Lovely views of Lake Superior and spacious rooms with comfy beds is how I would describe our stay Only complaint is that we slept in and missed the breakfast that sounded delicious

😁
