Barkers is a frequent New Years getaway for us. Poolside rooms with microwave and mini fridge are great if you don't mind a little childhood exuberance. Quieter rooms and suites are available as well. A bar and restaurant are available as well. The restaurant has been improving it's menu since a new food and beverage manager came on board.

HI we stayed there the weekend of Jan 2,3 2015. The check in process went very well. The front desk staff was very pleasant. The rooms and Hotel in general are ready for a remodel. But, They were fine. The only problem we had was that we wanted a place to hang out. It was 11 so the pool was...

I don't know what Don D is writing about. Our room was clean, well furnished and updated. The bed comfortable, and the lighting was fine. The staff was friendly, the bar inviting, the food good, the free full breakfast was great. We will be back.

We normally stay in Canal Park in Duluth; however, when we compared price, we decided to try out Barker's Island Inn. We were VERY pleased with the cleanliness, friendliness of the staff, and the pool, bar, and restaurant all in one location. The outside fire pit, swings, and benches offered a great view of the docks and boats. Our pet...

If we didn't have to be at a family wedding in a very short time, we would have walked out immediately. Appeared to have no updates (or deep cleaning) since it was built including the stale cigarette odor that permeated from every part of the place. Dirty, stained, worn furniture in the room, so we had no place to sit....

You will save money by driving across the bridge to stay while in the Duluth area. Hotel is resonably priced. Needs upgrades but hotel is clean. Room by pool and stairs were noiser than we anticipated asking to be by the pool. Front desk staff was awesome! Very professional and made us overlook any negative aspects. We would return if...

My wife and kids traveled from Lakeville, MN to Duluth in August, 2014. We had not made hotel arrangements prior to our arrival and found it impossible to find any vacancies within 60 miles of Duluth for under $280. We were thus surprised to find that Barker Island Inn still had one vacancy for $158-we should have known better, but...

Spent four nights at Barkers Island while attending the Bayfront Blues Music Festival over in Duluth. Barkers Island could certainly use some updating, the rooms and hallways are well used. But everything in the room was clean and in working order, so no complaints in that area. The room had a coffee maker, microwave, hair dryer, refrigerator, and a safe....

This place was average, for the price $139 + taxes I was expecting a lot more. We got there and the room stank of cigarette smoke. I right away looked for bed bugs as another reviewer had said there were some. Luckily I never had an issue with that. We had dinner in the restaurant and that took almost 2...

We stayed recently for a wedding. The hotel location is very nice, right on the harbor in Superior. We were able to see the ships passing through from the hotel. The beds were ok and sheets clean. The bathroom was not very nice. Smelled like they forgot to mop under the sink, the towel rack was falling off the wall...
