Opened the door to my room and immediately got a whiff of strong perspiration odor. Even after the cleaning came and "sprayed" the carpet it was still there. I told the front desk but they never followed up to see if it was ok. Same happened a week later. Never seen a hotel where the staff and management doesn't care... More

Spent the weekend at Canal Park Lodge. Parking lot was well lit and close to the front. Check-in was quick and associates were friendly. Room was very nice. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was big enough. Lots of soft pillows. The view from our room was lousy but no fault of the hotel, just a luck of the draw to get... More

I will start out with the positives of this hotel. The location is terrific. Staff was friendly. It seems to be fairly new and the room was clean. We could hear the Superior waves hitting the shore. The bathroom tile was new and had no mold/mildew. The carpet and sheets appeared clean to the naked eye..... But the smell in... More

We stay here almost every time when we visit Duluth; it's our go-to hotel. We love everything about it; the rooms are clean and decorated nicely, the breakfast is always delicious, the lobby is gorgeous, the pool area is clean, and the appetizers and drinks are always a hit. The hotel is nicely located in Canal Park and is easily... More

We really liked this hotel. We had a room with 2 comfortable queen beds with a balcony overlooking the boardwalk, we loved it. We loved it so much that we endured the smell... Oh the smell... It wreaked of a boys locker room/smelly feet/whatever. It stunk. We dealt with it by leaving the balcony door and our windows open. Other... More

We stayed one night at the New Canal Park and it was great. Awesome Location. Easy walking distance to all the highlights of Canal Park. Great views of Lake Superior and right on the Boardwalk on the shore. Great complimentary appetizers in the evening by a sitting lounge area with a fire right outside by the lake. Rooms were very...

Loved the location and the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was hot, tasty and offered a wide variety of choices. The pool was warm, clean and offered showers in the restroom. Would stay here again.

We were extremely pleased with Canal Park Lodge. We had previously stayed at the Comfort Suites Canal Park, which this surpassed in every way. We loved the location, so close to downtown that it was easy to walk to the shops on Superior Street, and of course all of Canal Park was at our doorstep. The breakfast buffet was generous,... More

We had a room with 2 beds and a balcony overlooking Lake Superior. It was gorgeous. The hotel is nice. The staff friendly for the most part. The rooms were clean and the beds were so comfortable. Great pillows too! I missed the happy hour but I heard it was good. Complimentary breakfast in the morning was good. Scrambled eggs,... More
