  • 5.0

    Location was good. Walking distance to all the main shops downtown and waterfront. Lots of parking.

    The room could use some serious updating. Carpet was old and felt damp, bathroom fixtures were old, shower stall was very small and dark. The price was jacked up because of an event at the waterfront.

  • 2.4

    NOTHING

    the first room on the lower level smelled horrible like someone just had sex and left, fridge was on the floor. air-conditioner blocked by the bed. asked for different room, which was less smelly, but under the beds there was left over snacks and crumbs. The cost for this was very expensive 106.00 PARKING WAS HORRIBLE, we had motorcycles which almost tipped over, I would never recommend this pace to anyone!!! I would like my money back!!!!

  • 8.8

    Places to walk around nearby during the day. Good parking lot inside the perimeter.

    Neighborhood around the motel is a little sketchy later at night.

  • 8.2

    The gentleman that appeared to be in charge of room maintenance went to special effort to replace my coffee supply for the next day and made certain I didn't need anything else.

  • 8.2

    Brett was very accommodating, affable and competent. Can see why he is a valued employee. Close to room parking

    Noise from emergency vehicles. Squeaky door next door.

  • 7.8

    We had lawn chairs with us and we sat outside and enjoyed a beverage, I did check with staff on duty and they said that was ok to do, loved all the flowers around the building. The cleaning staff was very nice.

  • 6.6

    I don't recall what the Booked.net site stated about the property, but I did check the motel's website and they did not completely state some of the amenities, such as hairdryer and coffeemaker in the room. The location was close to downtown and Canal Park, which was important to us and the parking was great. Staff was friendly. Beds were clean and comfortable.

    The breakfast was just so-so. The coffee was good. The walls and ceilings are not in great shape. Hallway/stairwell carpets are badly stained. The place needs a little TLC. Looks pretty tired, and well-worn.

  • 7.4

    Internet service was poor-apparently it Is spotty and our room was in a dead area

  • 7.8

    Friendly accommodating staff and walking distance to Canal Park

    Rain!!

  • 7.4

    The staff were great about letting us keep our car there during the day after we checked out. We got a room at the last minute during the Tall Ships festival. I thought that would be impossible for a location within walking distance (If you don't mind a tall hill at the end of the day)

    The stairs between rooms make it tough if you have heavy luggage or trouble walking. Black tea bags at breakfast would have been nice...

  • 5.4

    The clerk let us in at 6am for breakfast which is half hour before they were open but we are early birds and would have missed the breakfast included with the room cost.

    On the whole, very cramped. Shower stall was barely wide enough to lift your arms up to wash hair. Location was ok, easy to find but felt like most of the rooms were rented by the month. Hope those tenants got bigger rooms!!!

  • 8.2

    Close to bars and 10 min walk from canal park.

  • 5.4

    The location is great, just a few blocks up from the waterfront, and walking distance to everything. The female clerk went out of her way to assist me given that their wifi was down. That was much appreciated.

    At breakfast, they put up a sign saying they were out of milk. I defaulted to bread. While it was toasting, it had a sour smell. Turns out, that sour smell was due to mould. Nice. We paid a premium price as it was summer in Duluth. No wifi as indicated and a dismal breakfast were not appreciated. We paid approximately $100 too much for a very basic hotel.

  • 5.8

    Location

    Bed was pushed up against air conditioner and could not be moved.

  • 5.0

    Room was very quiet and the hotel was booked solid.

    The price was high. The Staff told me several times that the DECC was only a 10 minute walk.....more like a 20 min. walk.
