Very friendly & helpful staff. Free parking, free breakfast with a wonderful variety of hot & cold food. Even had a sign for guests to let staff know if someone wanted a gluten free waffle. Can walk right out the back door of hotel to walk along Lake Superior - canal park walkway. Within walking distance of lighthouse, lift-bridge, watching... More

We enjoyed a one night stay at the Inn on our way to the north shore. We loved the location and our lake view balcony room on the 3rd floor--wonderful. Breakfast was not great---two adults and two teens and none of us ate much. We've eaten many much better hotel breakfasts--this was very, very blah. Other than that, I would... More

We arrived in the middle of a very busy Saturday afternoon right at the start of check-in time. There seemed to be a number of mini-crises that were happening including one family who had been waiting a while for their room to become available. However our check-in was efficient and the desk staff maintained their cool despite the goings on.... More

The Inn is our regular hotel for our yearly family vacation. Once again, they made is feel welcome in their great hotel. The rooms, pool, breakfast buffet, and nightly s'mores make great family memories. Already booked for our stay next year!

I travel to Duluth on business several times per year. I've only not stayed at the Inn once and it was just not the same. All the rooms are nice and super clean. The staff is great and the breakfast is great plenty of choices. They'll give you a to go bag if your in a rush.

A word of caution first: the rooms differ hugely. Some face the lake, some the parking lot (and the bridge) and some the pool. Avoid the pool rooms, they are noisy and have no real outside window. The others are fine. The hotel is located in the thick of things, with many restaurants in walking distance. Rooms are nice and... More

This hotel, even at full capacity, was amazingly quiet. We had a balcony room and enjoyed looking out at the lake which is always beautiful. The beds were comfortable and the free breakfast was very good. Being right in the middle of the action in popular Canal Park helps too. I would stay here again.

Everything was top notch from the time we checked in to the time we checked out. the view from our lakeside room was amazing! The continental breakfast was great, a lot of choices to pick from. The kids liked making smores every night. We'll be back next year!

My family and I have stayed at the Inn on Lake Superior in years past, and after our experience this year, we have decided, if at all possible, we will only stay at this hotel when visiting Duluth! I would recommend spending the extra money to get a room with a view! My son loves looking out and watching ships... More

Right from the start it was an easy decision to stay here. The website page offered a "chat with the front desk" so I could ask all the questions I had without having to phone. Then I discovered that as a Canadian citizen, I could receive a lower rate on certain days......just happened to correspond with my days! When we... More
