3/5 Okay

Traveled with group
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Our room did not have a shower curtain in the bathroom. When we went to call the front desk, there was a phone in the room but it was not connected at all (not even any phone cords). We went to the front desk to ask about getting a shower curtain and they wanted to just hand it to us to hang ourselves. We said no and requested they hang it. The hot tub was only mildly luke warm at best. We ate in the hotel restaurant the first night and after we were brought our food we didn’t see much of the waitress. We had to ask the manager for our check as she was walking by.

Hotel is old and rather run down. Bed sheets not the cleanest. Neighboring room thought it was 4/20 and we pretty much received a contact high as fan in bathroom (automatically on with light) sucked all their smoke smell into our room!!

The location was really close to Duluth and check-in/ parking process was very easy! We enjoyed the views from the marina and the covid friendly breakfast was very thought out!

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Stayed in 136. Every corner of bathroom was covered in mold. Ceiling of bathroom was collapsing down. I’m sure due to lack of proper ventilation for the fan. Bathtub fixtures had mold surrounding it and bathroom just stunk. Pool had clumps of hair and a grimy layer all along pool edges. Ate dinner at the restaurant connected and I felt so bad for staff as they were very stressed and understaffed for a Saturday night.

Room was very nice, and good pool. Restaurant was understaffed, and finally had to leave and drove to a nearby Culver’s for supper.
