“We Sayed to Get our of a Storm and Exptected a bit more.....”
Reviewed 20 November 2011

My wife and I were on our way from Minnesota to Michigan and got caught in a huge snow storm. We stayed here thinking that we would find outstanding accommodations, based on the price, we were not really impressed. The rooms were, at the best, average. There was only limited internet connections. The restaurant closed at nine and that is when we showed up, on a Saturday, not acceptable. The lighting is terrible, the decor is old, room is small and I would have loved the place if it would not have cost us $100+ per night...

Not that spectacular of a place, but the location is good, it was clean, and the staff was friendly. I was there in the off season, so maybe it would have been better some other time. The area around the pool does smell old and muggy, luckily my room was not near the pool, so once inside the room it was ok.

I stayed at this hotel because a wedding I was attending was doing their reception here and everyone was staying at the hotel so I figured I'd rent a room. They advertise every room has a lake view - if they mean a sliver of water they dock boats in is lake superior - then my room held true. I was on the first floor in front of the pool but the pool wasn't sealed off from my hallway. It had a tall wall but didn't not seal so my hallway was muggy and smelled like a pool room. The room was OK - had it been 1995 and the furniture was only about 5 years old it might have been a lot nicer. I really just expected more for $160.00 a night. Overall, though, my experience at the hotel wasn't bad. The reception was a good time and the hotel people were friendly to us. In the end I had fun but that doesn't mean I'd stay there again. I just didn't feel it was worth the money I paid.

We had a lovely view of the marina from our quiet, comfortable room. The room decor is dated, although they are upgrading. The included breakfasts were excellent. It is a short drive across the bridge to the touristy Canal District of Duluth.
