Holiday Inn Express Bemidji
Travel Blogs from Bemidji
Woke up to cold winds this morning a reminder that spring is later and colder as we travel further west along the southern shores of Lake Superior.
Marquette made a strong positive impression on us - the people we talked to were very friendly and helpful; the architecture is interesting; the city is attractively laid out along the edge of the …
Tuesday Nothing remarkable about our room or our breakfast. When in Bemidji ... we had to check out the Paul Bunyan statue. At the Visitor Center, by the statue, the ladies told us "The Wild" had a photo and autograph session going on in the park next door. They were also giving away freebies, but I am not enough of a hockey fan to queue for some …
We spent most of our day in Duluth, MN. The two major attractions (for me anyway) were the railroad museum and the William A. Irvin. The Big Red Ship is a 610 foot long Great Lakes ore carrier. The William A. Irvin was built in 1937 and is an example of the old style lake boats. There are still a few of these plying the waters of The Great Lakes, but most have been replaced by bigger, more modern ships. We toured the entire ship, top ...
Greg's Version: Today is the third longest driving day of the vacation, 450 miles. The can be summed up as: I drove; it rained. I drove; it rained. I drove; it did not rain. I drove; it rained. We arrived at the hotel in the rain. We stopped briefly at the Prairie Village Museum where I took a few pictures. Mary's Version: Pretty much what Greg ...
We arrived before dark at the KOA campground just west of Bemidji, after crossing the very beginnings of the mighty Mississippi River that is a small creek here. The next day we met our next-site neighbours Bill and Karen Head from Winnipeg. After checking out, we drove into town where we saw the giant statues of Paul Bunyan (wearing a Shriner's fez) and Babe the Blue Ox, a little yellow submarine, and some fanciful statues made from scrap metal parts.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHoliday Inn Express Bemidji
Great service, comfortable beds, easy access - everything I've come to expect and appreciate about a Holiday Inn Express. The was our third night of our cross Canada drive, the spring weather had turned cold, we were really tired, a bit cranky and needed a good nights sleep. Unfortunately we got a room with adjoining door so we could hear our neighbour's TV as clearly as our own - and even hear them when they yawned! However a set of ear-plugs did the job and we slept well.
