What a stellar property. Other hotels with similar views, but the quality of the hotel and the excellent staff make this a not to be missed hotel. From warm cinnamon donuts at breakfast to s'mores at night, the amenities just keep on coming. There is nothing better in Canal Park at any price. Do not miss this one!

The Inn is on the shore of Lake Superior in Duluth. It is right in the middle of shops, restaurants and many activities. We had room 130 facing the lake on the ground floor. The room was spacious, the bed very comfortable, with refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. Very clean. Breakfast included with usual choices. Best feature was ability to... More

The Inn was kind of below my expectations. Sure the view of the lake is good but you pay a pretty penny for it. The balcony was nice. We ate our breakfast both days on our balcony instead of in the dining area with everyone else. The location is nice right on canal park. You can walk to anything in... More

Duluth is simply a beautiful and well-endowed natural beauty along the shores of Lake Superior in Minnesota. That said, visitors would be well-advised to find a room at one of the four lake-front hotels, ESPECIALLY The Inn on the Lake. We have stayed here many a time and just love everything about it. Though the front staff could be a... More

This is a great hotel in Canal Park. The location is fantastic - right in the heart of Canal Park on the lake. The lakewalk is right outside the hotel as well. You can literally walk anywhere you want to go from the hotel. The staff was wonderful. Every time we passed a staff member in the hall, they greeted... More

We just returned from a family reunion in Duluth and we stayed at The Inn on Lake Superior. While this hotel is located in the heart of Canal Park I will never stay here again. One of the most disappointing aspects of our stay occurred while sitting on the patio, enjoying the two fire pits. At 9:30 they stopped serving... More

Dear Lisa R, Thank you for taking the time to make us aware of your disappointment with us due to closing our patio and public areas at 11 pm. Being a hotel, by definition, we must remember that our guests are here for a good night's sleep, among other things, possibly. We have established 11 pm as the quiet time... More

This is the nicest hotel I have been too. Great and friendly staff! The best continental breakfast. Free bike rental and SMORES. Very clean. Easy walk to local attractions. Everything you need is in walking distance. Can't wait to go back!

The Inn is a perfect location on Lake Superior. The first floor rooms allow for easy access to the lakewalk. There are restaurants and activities within walking distance. The staff are friendly and helpful.

We had been aware of the Inn since our first visit to Duluth 5 years ago. When walking on the boardwalk of an evening you see a patio full of happy people mingling around two fire pits making s'mores. You imagine a beautiful hotel full of amenities and that is just what you get. We were able to have a... More

We had a wonderful stay for 3 nights in July. The rooms were nice and the location was perfect. First off, the hotel is located right off of the lake. In the morning, if you go down to their free breakfast (more on that later), you can sit out on their patio that looks out to the lake. It's beautiful... More
