We enjoyed our 4 day stay in Duluth in June 2015. We were there for a wedding, and liked the location of this hotel. Very convenient to many things, especially the lake front. Free use of bikes a plus! Property needs better maintenance. Staff was just OK. Microwave, fridge great. Beds not.

We have been to Duluth several times but had previously stayed at other hotels not in canal park. Would definitely recommend this hotel. It's a great location, easy to walk to all the attractions in canal park. The hotel has many great ammenities that are free.(rooftop pool, bike rentals, nightly S'mores). The rooms with balcony's facing Lake Superior are incredible.

Front desk staff need to understand room type is more than just lakeview. Some guests need king beds due to their height. Was told they upgrade to lakeview, but was than stuck in a queen size bed and the original bridgeview king size bed was given away.

The location of this hotel is perfect! Lee had a main floor king room with a walk out. The room was very spacious and clean. The lawn is verywell maintained. You are close enough to the lake walk yet far enough back that you still feel like you have privacy. You can shop, eat and drink your way through Canal... More

Not acceptable behavior at front desk. Get better staff. Told couldn't used credit card I paid with as they put a hold on it because it was a debit credit card. Terrible abuse at front desk checkin until young man rescued me from all the bad customer service.

I love coming to this hotel and look forward to it each year. I haven't stayed anywhere else in Duluth as I just want to keep coming back! There are so many things to do within the hotel but is very close in proximity to a lot that Duluth has to offer.

Park your car, use the bikes, games out front, and finish your day with smokes. Take a late night dip in the roof top hot tub. The location makes this a great family get away with lots to see and do. Great place to stay.

There were six of us, and we were all disappointed we were only staying one night. We loved the hotel - the room was spotless, the location is perfect, the lake and lake walk are right out front - so much fun and so beautiful. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. And my granddaughters could not have been happier... More

Been to Duluth before but never stayed near the lift bridge. Location is excellent, adjacent to long boardwalk, the lakeshore, restaurants and the lift bridge - all are within walking distance. Had room with balcony overlooking the lake. Very nice stay.
