Watched the boats from our room! Walking distance to jingle bus. Caribou coffee bar and full breakfast! Great for kids! Family had a blast. We... 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...

This hotel is excellent. They have a huge selection for the breakfast in the morning and the facility is clean and staff are friendly. The kids loved aging in the swimming pool and soaking In the hot tub. We will be back.

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.
