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.

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.
