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

This is one step above a basic property that is located in the heart of Duluth's entertainment district, the Canal Park area. It features great views of Lake Superior, a patio lakeside for watching the sun rise or just kicking back and watching the boats and freighters come and go from the harbor, and two room suites with fridge (complimentary...

The Inn had everything that you could need. It was so family friendly and yet so peaceful. We visited over the 4th of July and it still felt small and private. From the staff to the room, everything was amazing! Can't wait to go back again.
