I have visited this hotel to attend work seminars. The two downfalls to this hotel are that they do not have a restaurant and their parking lot is too small. They do offer a Continental breakfast, but you have to wander around the canal area to find a place to eat lunch or dinner. They do have a nightly s'mores... More

LOVED everything about it except they no longer take pets, but I do understand the reasonings. You are right on Lake Superior and people had a habbit of letting their pets swim in the lake and then some into the rooms. Service animals are accepted. Love the late check out of 12pm. They have a 2 pools. I enjoyed the... More

We stayed there for a swim meet in Duluth. The service was great, the rooms were clean and a nice variety of items was offered with the included continental breakfast. The location on Canal Park is ideal. Walking distance to several stores and restaurants. My only complaint was how thin the walls are. The room next to ours watched TV... More

I have stayed at many hotels in Duluth and this one is definitely the best. They are so attentive to details. My kids have food allergies and they seem to understand cross contamination issues and even have a very clear allergen list at the breakfast. The rooms are clean, the pool is nice, the view is amazing, and the staff... More

We stayed at the Inn for a high school hockey tournament and our experience was wonderful from the first time I picked up the phone to make the reservations. We blocked a number of rooms and everything ran seamless! Upon arrival the front desk staff was nothing but professional and friendly. We had a team dinner in their dining area... More

We spent the day before and New Years Eve at the Inn on Lake Superior. We (2 couples) hoped to get a two bedroom family suite but could not find a vacancy on line. When we arrived we asked in person and they had a "Cabin Suite" available. The past year we had the regular suite. What a nice room,... More

We have stayed at the Inn almost every August since 2003, when we started going to the Bayfront Blues Festival, as well as numerous other times over the years. We have always received good service, and stayed in clean, nice rooms. The staff has consistently been very accommodating and professional. Management can be very proud of them. I just hope... More

We have stayed at a lot of 'nice' hotels across many states, and Duluth is our favorite area. This was our first stay at The Inn, and the best hotel and experience we have had! We were very satisfied with every area, and reserved for next year at check-out.

Beware of this scam - the Inn on LS lets you reserve a room of your choosing. When you arrive, though, they will tell you that either the people in your room didn't leave yet so you have to accept a lower grade room or that other families that arrived before you requested that room so "you can either accept...
