The place was not completely what was pictured. There were no outside images on the site, which would have definitely changed my mind about staying here.

This place looks nothing as it does in the photos! The rooms were dirty, the site was horrible looking, and not in a good neighborhood!

I liked the location and the evening staff, they were very helpful and friendly. My room was clean and comfortable. The facility is a little run down and noisy, I was awakened before 5am by noise outside my second floor window.

For a smoke free hotel it’s quite odd that the rooms smell constantly of cigarettes. Some staff were nice but there were 2 in particular who were awful, one was just rude and degrading and the other was screaming at another college and throwing lobby furniture around. I felt incredibly unsafe, nearly had to call the police. I stayed there 3 nights and paid way too much for what I got out of the stay. It is a scam. Take your money, time, & safety needs elsewhere. * also I was here during covid, I make sure to take precautions with masks and washing my hand and using sanitizer. The entire three days I was there I only saw two people with a mask, nor did I see any sanitation stations. I also doubt that the rooms are properly cleaned. The sheets were burnt / stained and I found leftover items from the guest before me.

This hotel is not worth the money! We paid $167 a night and this place is worth about $50 a night. It is basically a place to sleep. Room was dated, in need of updates, and not the cleanest. Towels provided on arrival were dirty. On our second night we asked twice for more bath towels and never got them. This place does not have easy access to room. Hotel access is always locked, so we had to call and wait for attendant to open door to get access to hotel. We waited 15 minutes for attendant to open door and then she was rude to us, This hotel also houses low income permanent residences, We were woken up at 4:30 am by drunken person talking outside our door. This hotel is located in a rundown area of Duluth. No elevator, lots of stairs. Getting our gear to and from the room was a chore and involved multiple trips. Do not stay here.
