I needed a place to sleep (good thing I brought my own air mattress) and a shower in the moring before a meeting scheduled for 10:00am. there wasn't any shampoo,lotion etc in the room, and of course I hadn't brought any with me, so I bought a less
than 2 oz bottle from front desk for $1.50, I had thought I would get internet (for an extra charge I could purchase it. I could have drove from my home to get to my meeting the same day as the meeting however I thought that it would be good to sleep in, will there was such a racket (people talking) outside our room at 5:00am the late sleep in didn't pan out. One more thing the curtains were too small for the windows so the BRIGHT light shown in our room and it was hard to get to sleep, had to pull covers over our eyes or used washcloth to block the light out. I would never stay at a Motel 6 again and will gladly pay extra to receive quality bed,shampoo, curtains that fit, and peace of mind.
The Motel was very clean, The staff was great, There was only 1 electrical receptacle by the bed and they gave us an extension cord. That’s the good part.
The Ice machine was in the lobby which was about a block walk. We ended up buying a cooler
and a bag of ice at the gas station next door. We brought our own coffee pot (we called and asked), It was the first motel we had ever stayed in that didn’t have a pen and paper, didn’t have Kleenex, and didn’t even have an alarm clock (or any clock). We could have brought our own stuff if we had known. They charged $3 a day for internet, but it was so slow they should have paid me.
It was a good value, about ½ of a downtown motel and right off the freeway and only a couple minutes to downtown. I would go back.
I went up to Duluth for one to visit a friend and knew I wasn't going to be spending much time at the hotel. All I needed was a place to lay my head down at night and take a shower/brush my teeth in the morning and this is exactly what I got. The
room was minimal but very clean. The beds were a little hard, but I like that. The proximity to Downtown was fantastic. A very quick and easy drive. And when staying here, a trip across the parking lot to the Duluth Grill is an absolute must! They have terriffic food and very friendly waitstaff.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Head to the Duluth Grill! You won't be disappointed!
My wife and I stayed here for a wedding in August. The weekend happened to be a busy one in Duluth as there was other events going on in town. We paid a lot for a very outdated hotel room. We made due for the night but I would not reccommend.
