"One of the better hotels in Duluth, MN"
It's dated and appears relatively clean but the beds are hard. Still, out of the hotels in Duluth it is one of the better ones. There are wonderful B&B's in Duluth that are better but the good ones are extremely expensive in comparison and have a minimum stay of 3-7 days. Also, the more popular B&B's require very advanced reservations for availability. […] This hotel features 2 pools, a sauna and a gym and is walking distance to everything. And the parking is free!! After paying $18./day for parking at a 4-star hotel in Minneapolis it was refreshing to see a hotel providing real value for the dollar. The rooms are very affordable.

"No windows to the water"
I was very disappointed to have paid so much and then received a room that was extremely humid and filled with chlorine. It was a room attached to the pool, I requested a room change but they said since I booked through Hotels.com I couldn't change to a different room. The hotel barely has any rooms that actually face the waters of Lake Superior. When […] we arrived the sheets on one of the bed were soiled and there was make-up on the pillow case. They changed the sheets out immediately, but why wasn't that seen at the beginning. Because my friend and I weren't dressed up, we weren't slumming it either, I felt we were treated as second class to others. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Our check-in experience was above-average and the front desk woman provided recommendations for restaurants and a map. The room was clean- but not much of a view. The gym was fine- the pool (which we didn't use) was small but serviceable. The hotel is conveniently located to attractions, but right outside of a bus transfer station and people (some drunk) […] loiter outside, which can make venturing outside at night interesting. However, it seems like most of Duluth is like this, so I don't know if there is a better option. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very accommodating staff!!"
First night we were near the pool it was pretty loud. Ask the front desk if we could change to a quieter room and they set us up in the tower side almost immediately. Free shuttle till ten pm, close to everything. Will definitely stay there again...on the tower side :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our hotel stay"
It was overpriced for the cleanliness and the maintenance of the room otherwise it was a nice areaGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I have stayed here many times, and the staff is friendly, they offer convenient shuttling to area attractions, sell tickets for attractions, etc. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Will definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Shuttle service was great"
Disappointed with the suite, for the cost. And housekeeping did a poor job. After the first nights stay they left used towels on the bathroom floor and failed to bring clean ones. They made one bed, and not the other.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was clean and comfortable. didn't really care for the surroundings of the hotel. kind of a scary area, especially when you see cops inside and outside of the hotel. stayed there because nothing else was available down in canal park.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Place to Say"
It was easy to book through Hotels.com. I chose the hotel because ot its location and the option of a room with two beds and a pull-out sofa bed. The room was extremely comfortable and well kept. The restaurant was excellent. The hotel is within walking distance of many attractions yet not in the middle of everythnig so it was quiet. The price was an […] excellent value.

"Right smack downtown"
Super clean, nice and friendly. Laminate from bathroom door was so old that it was falling off. Carpet and wallpaper looked dated but exceptionally clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the harbor."

Overpriced. Mold on roof of bathroom. Was afraid my car was going to get broken into. No free breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel in a decaying neighbourhood"
The rooms were clean and comfortable but pricey for this level. The neighbourhood was run down with many shops and offices shuttered.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to Canal Park"
This Hotel was within walking distance to the sightseeing/shopping in Canal Park, but a lot less expensive that the Hotels within Canal Park. Room was clean and service was excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very beautiful and has great restaurants"
The hotel is very nice, the staff couldn't have been more friendly. The room was very comfortable and the pools were relaxing and well kept. We ate at both restaurants in the building and enjoyed them. The location is only a couple of blocks to the harbor and you can take sky-walks the entire way if you choose. I also felt safe leaving my vehicle in […] the parking garage which was also very nice. Thanks Holiday Inn Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
suite the purposeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I like this hotel and have stayed there many times. I was surprised on how the downtown Duluth has turned into a ghetto though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Efficient and friendly staff. Free parking! Our room was clean and had beautiful furnishing and linens. However it's a bit uncomfortable to walk out onto the street level right into a crowd of very interesting people...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Boarded up buildings grace downtown Duluth these days. This room we were given faced the dark alleys of Duluth. Musty-smelling to say the least. Only plus was that it was quiet at night. Stay away from pool-facing rooms if you can. This hotel was probably glorious in 1995.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Duluth Getaway"
The hotel is very clean and the rooms are very comfortable. I chose it because it's close to Canal Park and the things that we were in Duluth to do, it has a pool, it was a priced competitively, and because of the Holiday Inn brand. My kids and I were very happy with our stay at this hotel!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We wanted to be able to walk to the fireworks on the 4th. We did a lot of walking, but don't walk alone. You are in the heart of the city. The hotel was very nice and we the kids loved the pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is the second time we stayed at this hotel. They renovated since last year, so the rooms were even nicer. Even though the hotel isn't right on the Lake Walk or Canal Park, it's only a few blocks' walk away. The only things we didn't like was that there isn't a continental breakfast, and the fact that there's a bus stop immediately in front of the […] street entrance of the hotel. It results in being a gathering place for some of the less affluent locals. Not enough to keep us from staying again, however. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient to interstate, nice view of downtown"
Room was dusty, bathroom tub was slippery as well as the bathroom floor. The room was nice sized and the bed was comfortable. The restaurant had great food and service was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good room, Great Location"
We were all very pleased with this hotel. First of all, the parking ramp was very useful, since there is no place to park in Downtown Duluth except in a ramp. The parking is free to those staying in the hotel. The hotel is nicely situated in a central location. The hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I liked the discounted tickets to local […] attractions. We had a great time, and hope to return to Duluth some day. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay"
We had a great time , check in to check out was perfect!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Housekeeping Staff did not replenish shampoo and lotion when refreshing room, nor did they replace used glasses with clean ones. They did readily supply those item when requested, however.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice hotel, but we had an expensive bag of tools stolen from the parking ramp overnight. Maybe should have surveillance cameras.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice and new interior"
The location is easy to get to. The beds were super comfortable with the big pillows. Our room was newly redone and very up to date. Happy that Porter's restaurant is open for breakfast which was excellent. Plus the price of our room was extremely reasonable in comparison to other rooms in the Duluth metro area. Will stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Weekend get away"
Great hotel downtown.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to canal park"
Enjoyed my stay but with room cost would be.nice if a breakfast was included.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good for quick stay."
Room was nice and clean, service was helpful. Pool area was just outside our door but didn't hear the noise once we were in the room. Close enough to walk to Canal park but the indoor walkways closed fairly early and it wasn't sure about crossing the highway. Realized in daylight it would have been a quick jaunt.
"Excellent Room, Great Service"
09/14/14 Michael O De Pere, Wisconsin
I was in Duluth for the Northshore Inline Marathon and had an excellent experience at this hotel. The room was well-furnished, clean, and very comfortable, and the view of the harbor was spectacular! The property is convenient not only to the race venue, but also to a large number of shops and restaurants in downtown Duluth. The hotel staff was friendly, efficient, and very knowledgable on places to eat and things to do. I was very happy with the entire experience and will definitely be back next year.
"Holiday Inn stay"
09/10/14 Eileen K Saint Joseph, Minnesota, United States
Employees were very polite and friendly, It is very clean, comfy beds, It was really close to every thing we wanted to do. Able to walk to almost everything! Already booked rooms for my Birthday in October!

We have stayed here a few years ago and it was OK but clearly LD. Recently it was remodeled and now meets the holiday in standard. We stayed in a comfortably sized room and it was comfortable and clean. The hotel had multiple pools which was also nice since one was often busy. My two complaints are the slow speed of the elevators (they need more) and the small size of the bathrooms.
"Our Visit on Aug, 25, 26 & 27"
09/04/14 Linda M Coon Rapids, Minnesota, United States
We enjoyed both swimming pools and the people of Duluth were really friendly. Our visit to the Duluth Zoo gave us some excitement. In the parking lot there were about 2 peacocks walking around. They were very beautiful so see. Also, at the zoo we went on a train that took us around the zoo which was kind of different but very enjoyable.
"Great rates for travelling Canadians"
09/02/14 Janet C Thunder Bay
We often stay here on our way to or from Minneapolis or for a quick getaway. Location is great and the rates for Canadian travellers can not be beat. The hotel has indoor parking, shuttle to the airport a will keep your car while you are away. Recent renovations are a nice upgrade.
"Ok but doubt I'll stay again"
09/02/14 ckbarnes Minneapolis, Minnesota
We reserved a suite with a King size bed. Upon arrival, found we were right off the pool area. Asked if there was anything available farther away (pool is open approx 8am to 10pm) and we were told all suites were next to the pool. Very small room. Especially for the price we were paying, we expected a bigger and nicer room. Bedroom area was fine. The living room area was smelly. Hard to believe hotel staff did not notice it and do something about it. My husband left a note that the source of the really bad smell was behind the refrigerator. Hopefully it is addressed before the next person stays there.
"End of summer trip"
09/01/14 Simon G Saint Cloud, Minnesota, United States
Well I first must say I was presently surprised as how nice this hotel was. I have not stayed at any Holiday Inn's for a very long time. The hotel lobby upon entry has been recently updated and it looks very nice and welcoming. You have a great staff at your front desk always addressing guests with a smile and also very curtious. They were never annoyed that both rooms we reserved kept asking for more K-cups as we are avid coffee drinkers. My wife and I stayed in the Siuer De lut sutie which was very cozy. We really liked the tile floor as you walk in and the shower with the glass door was very classy looking. The rest of my family stayed in one of your family suites and they were also very happy the service and the room. The only negative thing I found were the window sills in both rooms were pretty dirty. I took a wipe and cleaned them off. I know things get missed, but I thought you would like to know that. I will be back otherwise for another great stay,.
It's a pretty good hotel, I know it's quite expensive for what you get. But it's clean, close to the center, but away from the noisy train and bridge horns. The breakfast in the first floor. It's like another part of the hotel. If you book it with breakfast it will be a coupon for $20. The breakfast is good and variable. During the weekend the parking is free and it takes you about 15 minutes by the sidewalk to get to canal park.
"Value just wasn't there"
08/31/14 Late-Day-Traveller Thunder Bay, Canada
Spent one night in this downtown centered Holiday Inn. Room was clean and well laid out but bathroom was tiny, especially since this was a two Queen room. Paid $160 for a harbour view room but it was at least a mile away and largely blocked by a nearby building. Indoor parking was a plus as was the comp free wifi. Staff were excellent, especially at the checkin station - friendly, accommodating and informative. Dinner selections were quite limited with a pub style place on site, nothing more. Breakfast menu looked good but we sought our first meal elsewhere as we are accustomed to that meal being included in the price - certainly the norm in Duluth. All in all I felt the value wasn't there to justify the price. In addition to the points raised above the location in downtown was unappealing - rough looking neighbourhood in real need of revitalization.
