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...

Stayed there for a Fraternity reunion. Good location and friendly staff but even through it has been recently remodeled I can only give it an average rating. The rooms are small but OK. The bar and restaurant areas were OK and the food was not bad. Even with what it is, it is probably the best stop in Superior.

We stayed at Barker's Island Inn during a busy travel weekend after a referral from another (full) hotel. The workers were courteous and friendly, however some advertised amenities were not available because it was not "summer" yet- although it was Memorial weekend, and the tennis court had weeds growing in it. There were touristy things to do within walking distance,...

On a recent trip to Minnesota's North Shore, we spent the night at the Barkers Island Inn in Superior, Wisconsin. The front desk clerk was friendly, helpful, and efficient. Our second floor lake view room had two queen beds, small fridge, TV, in-room safe, microwave, and a table and chairs. The room was clean and comfortable. The shower's water pressure...

The food is excellent...especially the fresh trout and whitefish! The waitresses are accommodating. In addition, the mashed potatoes are fresh with a hint of garlic and the salads are crisp and are offered with a variety of dressings. The bread basket is a nice addition!

Our room was nice and it was a great location.We were looking forward to relaxing in the whirlpool, but it was always full of kids (up to 15 at a time) except for the three times it was closed do to cleaning because of an accident. Once there was even a baby wearing diapers in a inflatable floating around in...
