Short and not so sweet....this place stinks. The room had a view of the lake, and that is the only thing good about it. Staff were not friendly. I would think a big hotel like this would take the initiative to use paint and brush and change carpets etc. and make a nice place here. No smoking would be nice....

My husband and I just spent our 13yr anniversary here and we had a wonderful time. The hotel itself needs an upgrade but it was not bad. We loved the pool and hot tub and the view from either side of the hotel was wonderful. The location was great and we loved that they provided bikes so we could explore...

This is one of Superior's best lodging options, and it is definitely our go to. The kids love the pool, and it has good on-site dining options. There is also plenty of things to do nearby. For our wedding, all of our guests stayed here, and they all seemed to enjoy their experience.

For an old place they have clean and up to date rooms. The location couldn't be more beautiful, but it's not in lake superior if that's what your looking for. Its nearly surrounded by the back waters but you will need to go somewhere else if you want to get in the water. The staff was friendly and check in...

For a older hotel, I give it high ratings. Very well maintained. Rooms nice, beds comfortable, pool, sauna, and hot tub wonderful. Breakfast was good. The staff goes above average to give you a good visit. I had forgot my fan and I asked the front desk if they had one. They searched and got me one for me. The...

I would rate this hotel a 3.5 if it were possible. The decor in the rooms was a bit dated, but nothing horrible. Many of the views in the rooms are good; as I was not on the lake side, I expected to be viewing a parking lot. Instead, I had a view of sailboats in the marina and the...

I'm surprised at the review from the couple who stayed there on 8/2. We were there from 8/2/2015 through 8/6. We went there for the first time several years ago and found friendly staff and reasonable rates. It was very dated, but had great views. We went again 2 years ago and it was in the middle of a full...

This is an update. We stay at BI once a year for 4 nights while we attend the Bayfront Bluesfest in Duluth. See my original review (written Aug 16, 2014) for more info. Some things were improved over our last stay, and much of the good stayed constant: The room and bedding was clean, and the pervasive cigarette smoke odor...

Stayed the end of July for 2 nites. Solo traveler. Lobby a little stuffy and musty smelling. I stayed on the 2nd level and was across from the pool area and had view of Duluth and the lake from my window. Room clean, cool and comfortable queen beds. Air conditioner working overtime as it was 95 degrees there! Nice free...

I recently stayed at Barker's Island last weekend 8/2 for one night. I've stayed here before and knew the hotel wasn't the most up to date. This particular weekend everything was booked due to weddings and events in the area. My boyfriend and I were coming up for a wedding as well and after calling around Barker's seemed to be...
