Haven't stayed here for a year or so, largely because they are not pet friendly, one of the only negatives I have for this property (and that's a shame, they're located right on the waterfront and its a great place to walk with dogs.

We spent two nights at the Canal Park Lodge in August. This was our second visit; we had also stayed here in 2013. The location of the lodge is great: the lake shore is right outside the back door, several great restaurants and shops nearby, the aerial bridge within close walking distance. A bit further of a walk (but still... More

Upon arrival we decided to upgrade to a lakeview corner suite. Everything was great, I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Staff was efficient and helpful, free breakfast very good,... More

We always stay at the Canal Park Lodge. Our trips to Duluth or the North Shore start with checking in at the lodge. We prefer a lake side room with a view of Lake Superior. The rooms are clean and nicely furnished, the staff is helpful, friendly and welcoming. They have a great breakfast, a perfect start to a day... More

Almost everything about this hotel deserves praise. Staff especially were extremely helpful and pleasant. We stayed over a long weekend with a large group. The location can't be beat. The view from our room was incredible (lake view). Breakfast is free and offers Belgian waffles, cheesy hash browns, and hard boiled eggs, along with normal continental breakfast fare. If there...
