It was clean and the staff very friendly. quiet nice fire pit I just was very dissappointed there were not any places you could eat inside..all drive thru OR one place was extremely expensive 17.95 for a hamburger. We had to drive all the way to Cloquet to a Perkins. NOT convenient

The rooms are very old. Spider webs and a spider in the room. Floors looked kinda new. But wall beds need update. I wouldn’t stay if I didn’t have a choice.

Blanket covered in dog hair. Everything stained, broken, hair in tub, only 1 towel in room.

Very very quiet easy walk to a great restaurant

It was a bit of a dump. Very old. Poor security. Poor carpet. Poor parking lot.

Beds were comfortable but the entire facility is in desperate need of some major TLC.

It wasn't on a lake, as suggested in the ad. The external condition wasn't great. However, it was neat inside.

We liked that it was clean and available at a price less than the Duluth market offered on a weekend. If the patio doors were open, Hwy 35 noise was always there. "Lake view" was questionable.

Staff was very friendly and helpful, view from the room was excellent and it was close to restaurants. If anything they could find restauraunts that deliver to room but that's not a big problem.

Clean,cute,comfortable.would recommend to anyone.good experience

Motel of LAST resort. Room was grimey. Grounds were unkempt. Asphalt driveway on disrepair. Waaaaay overpriced.

ENJOYED. Surprisingly the hotel rooms were very clean and I felt the bathrooms were recently renovated and kept very clean. Happy with my stay and place is recommended.

Well I'm very sorry you felt this way, maybe you can spend more money at a Hotel. We try to get all of the bugs out of the rooms. But sense you know nothing about spiders it but only takes them but seconds to minutes to be back. we spray for bugs but we try to do the best we can. please don't come back.

I apologize for any inconveniences, we do try our best that room had to have been missed for the full cleaning. We are a small business, we are not owned by any large corporation. Its just a single family business, we get very disrespectful customers who feel its OK to be rude and not respectful to other peoples property. Again I apologize for your inconvenience. We are going back ti our policy of no pets as well as no smoking with in 100 feet of the building. We already have multiple law suites for customer damages.
