I have been staying at the Inn since I was a kid. I have always received exceptional customer service, cleanliness and overall warmth. The roasting marshmallows and the outdoor pool have been a long time favourite for myself and my sister. The rooms have always been nice and occasionally we have been upgraded for free to a suite! I always... More

Pricey, but you can't beat the location or the view. Stay on the 3rd floor if you can. There is an out door pool on the roof!!! Breakfast buffet is average at best, but they do have everything you need. For the room cost, thought the food would be better.

The family suite at the Inn On Lake Superior was what we reserved. It was the most affordable way to get the two families together without the cost of the two rooms. It was adequate. the main bedroom overlooked Lake Superior with a balcony, which was fantastic for the ones sleeping in that room... the second room was windowless and... More

This was our first time at The Inn on Lake Superior and it will be our last. We selected it based upon great reviews and the fact it was recently updated. We weren't impressed for the cost of > $300 per night. We basically paid for the convenient location as the hotel wasn't anything special. Yes, the room was nice... More

We have stayed at the Inn on Lake Superior for Grandma's Marathon every year since 2008 (with the exception of 2009 when I was going through chemo and they were more than accommodating with refunding our trip and holding a room for 2010). This year, we were very disappointed. We checked in on Friday afternoon and proceeded to our room... More

I absolutely love this hotel. The location is amazing, the rooms are huge, clean, and totally updated, and you simply can't beat the heated, outdoor pool when the weather gets cool! Can't wait to return to this gem.

Worth every penny. I stay here not just when I Have to be out of town, but as the destination itself. The location is amazing- from the shops in walking distance to the views of the bridge and of course Lake Superior. The rooftop pool is something everyone should experience. The s'mores add a nice family or romantic touch and... More

Stayed here for Grandma's marathon weekend. I've stayed here many times before, but it had been about 6 years since our last stay. The nightly rate (plus 2 night minimum) for a standard room was an outrageous $370 (about three tines the normal rate), but it's supply and demand, so I cannot blame them. The staff was super friendly and... More
