We stayed here for just a single night when visiting UMD. The hotel is very nicely decorated - North shore meets arts and crafts. We had a double room overlooking the lake. It was clean, quiet and comfortable. What a view! The sunrise over Lake Superior was awesome and we could watch ships enter the harbor. The outdoor patio (lakeside)... More

We stayed one night for work. The lodge was not cheap but they did offer a decent corporate discount. The lodge itself was old. Their breakfast was pretty good with 2 or 3 hot items. I did use their waffle maker. In the evenings they offered free snacks along with a cash bar. The building itself definitely shows its age.... More

I had a lake side room with a great view of Lake Superior. Two very comfortable queen size beds. Spacious bathroom with all the standard amenities refrigerator, great air conditioning and heating. The room was also well appointed and quiet. The lake walk is right outside your door. Very Relaxing

my wife and I stayed one night here to break up visit. Large room NOT overlooking Lake Superior. Easy access to canal park walk. Visited brew house next door later in the evening and shops the next morning.

I was attending a business meeting and I wasn't responsible for booking this accommodation. Stayed for 4 nights The views were fantastic. Access to the board walk was great. Some good points and observations: 1. The bedroom was a good size 2. Lightening in the room wasn't the best 3. Liked that I could open the top windows so I... More

Wonderful place to stay, pretty good breakfast. Love that you are able to walk down the canal and watch the ships come in, our boys favorite part of Duluth. Many great restaurants within walking distance of hotel. Clean rooms, clean hotel. Friendly helpful staff. Would stay again!!

Staff were very helpful as I can tend to be a high-maintenance desk. Whether needing a replacement phone charger or help with mailing a package, the staff were friendly and eager to help. The hotel's ambiance is great, it's clean, and my room was very nice. An issue with an ADA reservation was resolved quickly. The rooms on the bottom... More

After reviewing excellent reviews on tripadvisor we decided to stay here. The hotel has a lot of positives: room size, water front location, clean, access to restaurants. I am not sure if I would stay again for the following reasons: 1) my room smelled like indian food. They have a microwaves in the rooms. The hotel provided an air freshner,... More

We enjoyed a balcony room overlooking the lake. The hotel is in a nice location with the boardwalk located just out the back. Nice walking to all the shops and restaurants along Canal Park Dr and also walking to the downtown area. The breakfast was good and our room was quiet and nice.
