Negative Reviews

Light on amenities

A number of previous guests that have stayed at the Downtown Duluth Motel bemoaned the limited amount of amenities provided - both in-room and in the public spaces of the motel. In terms of the rooms, the lack of a refrigerator and microwave has been an inconvenience for some.

Breakfast limited

While the breakfast has been acceptable for most, some issues have crept up in the past. Along with a supposed lack of options and space in the dining room, the volume of certain items was limited for former visitors and became unavailable quickly.

Tricky parking situation

For some of those traveling in their own transport, the parking at the Downtown Duluth Motel has been troublesome. As well as a restricted amount of spaces reportedly available, the fact the parking space is situated on a steep hillside has caused problems for past guests.
