The room was lovely, clean, and comfortable! The staff was great. The location is the best. There is a roof top pool and s'mores. We stayed in a bridge view room. What more do you need? The view was good, mostly parking lot, but we paid less for this room. When we left my friends and I agreed that we... More

Dear Jennifer M, Thank you very much for taking the time to write and post your review about your recent stay with us. The view of the Aerial Lift Bridge from the bridgeview rooms provides our guests the ability to see ships enter and leave our harbor, and the bridge's movements from the comfort of their own room, and I'm...

We came on this trip for a conference, but have stayed for pleasure in the past. The only bad part was having to leave! Love, love, LOVE the pool on the roof...even in November! Staff has always been friendly and helpful. The family can't wait for the next visit!

I came here for business at the convention center and had never been here before. Lake Superior had always been a favorite place to travel to, but I had never been to Canal Park before. I've fallen in love with the Inn and Canal Park. I had a lakeside room and experienced the beautiful full moon over Lake Superior. The... More

Inn on the Lake is always consistent with great service, great location, and nice amenities. Bedding and mattress are all good quality - no foam blankets! During high season on weekends, the place is deluged with families. I love kids, but they will overwhelm the pools during these times. We enjoy the rooftop pool, but the teenagers that congregate there... More

We loved being able to walk in the downtown area, go to Canal Park and watch a ship come in, and walk back to the hotel. It was so fun. The customer service was exceptional. The room was very clean, and the bed was so comfortable. It would have been fun to stay another day just to get time to... More

Whenever we're in Duluth we stay at the Inn on Lake Superior. The rooms are very nice, fairly large and many have great views of the lake. There is a free breakfast but it wasn't very good on the Friday we left. Eggs that had been sitting for some time in the heaters and no meat choices whatsoever. You can't... More

This place really has it down. I really admire the management of this facility. From check in to check out all was totally professional, well thought out and off the charts in terms of attention to detail. Everybody--I mean everybody is friendly and professional.

1st stay here, although have been celebrating in Duluth for years. Very clean, comfortable room with a Great Lake view. Good breakfasts in am even warm fresh tiny doughnuts. Yum! Received a great rate. Would be worth paying seasonal up charge. Enjoyed coffee in room in real cups. No plastic here. Will stay here again🎊
