Once again this year, our trip "up North" included a short stay in Canal Park, Duluth. We have always found The Inn on Lake Superior to be comfortable and inviting: large indoor and smaller outdoor (bridge view) pools, firm beds, and enough "yard area" for kids to play without disturbing other guests. We enjoy reading on the balconies, stretching our... More

Our families travelled to Duluth for a family wedding and wanted a hotel close to the ceremony (Leif Erickson Park) as well as the reception (DECC). The Inn was a swell choice as they offered a military/service-persons discount. When we arrived, our family suite was ready for an early check-in, so we could begin exploring right away. The location is... More

My wife and I have stayed at The Inn on Lake Superior many times and we always have a great time. The rooms are clean and we love the balconies overlooking the lake. You won't find a better hotel in Duluth.

We tend to make the Inn our base for our trips to Duluth. The rooms are always in top condition. The views are amazing. We enjoy the breakfast, it is always great. Love the waffles. Have stayed at other hotels on Canal Park and find the Inn is the best.

We returned to Duluth for our 39th wedding anniversary and stayed at "The Inn" in Duluth. We always stay here as it is our favorite hotel in Duluth. The beds are very comfortable and the breakfast is fantastic. Perfect location!

i hadn't been to Duluth for several years and rented a room here for two nights in August while I toured the Duluth to Two Harbors area. The room was clean and well appointed and the help was very cordial, friendly, and helpful. Next time I'm in Duluth - here is where I will stay.

Loved the Inn! We reached out fairly last minute, & were able to get a family suite for the Friday of Labor Day weekend. Most amazing was the helpfulness of the staff! 2 of our children have autism & our son has an obsession with elevators. I emailed a contact at the hotel, & worked with Tonya from the front... More

My room was essentially a suite. I was concerned about noise from the hordes of screaming children, but for nothing...the room was very quiet. The furnishings, towels, and such were very nice. The bedding was very comfortable. My room iron was not serviceable when I checked in late in the evening. After a call to the front desk, another was... More

Our second stay here and both times were great. Location is perfect...view of the lake is nice. Lots of shopping and food options nearby. We called after 4 the last time and got a really good rate for that night. The breakfast is by far the best "free" hotel breakfast I have ever had...and the nightly s'more roast is fun!!!

We stayed two nights at the Inn on Lake Superior and couldn't have asked for a nicer way to end our vacation. Somehow, we managed to snag a two-bedroom ground-floor lake view family suite on just a day's notice. While more than we usually spend for a room, it was absolutely worth it! It's a fabulous location in the canal... More
