Ok stay

Posted Nov 18, 2014
Everything was clean but hotel is old and ran down. My sheets had a hole and the air conditioner would kick on every once in awhile just for fun. Was worth the price compared to other I have seen. We did get free breakfast which was very nice and great meal and service

OK Place But Needs Updating

Posted Oct 7, 2014
Pros: Bathroom was nice; new tile and a good shower.
Cons: Update it. Old style TV, furniture is old, mini-fridge was noisy, coffee pot was ancient.
This is a decent hotel sorely in need of updating. And I'm sure it's more enjoyable in the summer when you can take advantage of the waterfront location.

Great location & pet policy

Posted Oct 7, 2014
It's awesome to have a hotel that is truly ok with pets! All pets were in one end of the hotel, so you didn't worry if they barked a few times when someone walked past your room. All rooms have a view of the lake, as it's on both sides. Very convenient location for Superior and Duluth, yet out of the congestion. Beautiful pool. Right on a walking trail...

Superior Wisconsin

Posted Sep 29, 2014
Location: Had dinner at the Anchor Bar near by, would go there again.
Good place to stay for the price. I did not really use any of the amenities, just needed a place to sleep on the way thru town.

Beautiful location but rooms are a dump

Posted Sep 2, 2014
Pros: The grounds and location were beautiful.
Cons: Carpets in the rooms need to be replaced. Get rid of the bad smell - cross between mould and stale smokey bar smell.
We had stayed at Barkers Island a few years ago and loved the beautiful location and were expecting the same experience. We were very disappointed to see that the rooms had become run down. Our group had two rooms and both had a very bad smell that even air freshners couldn't get rid of. The carpets were very damp to point of being almost wet and had to keep shoes on. One half of our window was so smudged you couldn't see out of it. One bed in the room was saggy and was slanted to one side like the frame wasn't adjusted correctly. The other bed which we slept on was OK but the sheets barely fit and it came with an old wool blanket. It was hard to get any sleep with the bad smell in the room and noise from the room air conditioner. The curtains had little pinholes in them and were completed mismatched from the bedspreads. The bathroom was clean and the only thing that seemed OK. For price we paid for room we should have received a much better room.

Nice hotel facing water.

Posted Sep 1, 2014
Pros: On island.
Cons: We were not told about a big event happening that weekend. Dragon boat races. It would have been nice knowing what we were running into.
Location: We were going to Duluth for the air show. But there is a lot to do in this area.
We liked the motel on the island. We had a 2 room suite, but there was no door between the rooms. That would have been nice. The Wi-Fi didn't work the whole three days we were there. The bar/restaurant was good. Nice pool area. Parts of the motel seemed old and dingy/ worn out.

This hotel needs to be updated!!!!

Posted Aug 25, 2014
I called and talked to a staff member about my problem with online booking. He was extremely rude! Talking down to me. I talked to manager the next day she helped me right out no problem. Once we got here to check in at three our room wasn't ready yet at to wait 20 mins. Once we got in the room I felt like I went back to the 90s. Tube tv, comforter was ripped and the pillow case had brown stain on it. Gross! The hot tub was very good probably one of the only good things. Resturants was great. Our server cookie was nice! Only good thing going for them is that. Never will stay here agian. Update the place!

Nice location hotel

Just stayed the night as we were passing through. Pool was nice, room was a bit spendy for the cost, but my whole family slept good

Close to Duluth and main attractions

Posted Aug 11, 2014
I would definitely stay here again, however would request NOT to stay in rm 200. It's right next to the door to the lobby stairs and the door kept slamming the entire time, kept us up at night. Other than that, very pleasant hotel
