We make an annual trip to Duluth and have stayed at all the hotels in Canal Park and this is our favorite. Location is in the only hotel on the beach. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. We love the balcony rooms. Breakfast is great with nightly happy-hour drinks and appetizers (apps go early, so if you want any, get... More

In all the 5 star reviews I have read I came across only 1 so far that discussed the smelly rooms. We were up for wedding and had 4 rooms rented. Every single room smelled like a sweaty locker room...it was awful. Then they try to mask it by pumping a scented deodorizer thru the ac/heat vents. So strong I... More

We have been coming for at least 4 days every summer since the lodge opened 7 years ago. It feels like we are coming "home" every time we go. We always chose a 1st floor lake view. Very convenient to everything. We arrived early and they offered a 3rd floor room which we declined. So immediately he asked housekeeping to... More

This was our second year at Canal Park lodge, and we love the location and the fact it is so central to so many things in Duluth. This year though our room had a very bad smell (like my kids hockey locker room), and we never felt as though the situation was resolved. I went to the front desk and... More

Stayed here in the whirlpool king suite and it was wonderful. The bed was soft and the rainfall shower is a plus. The whirlpool fits two comfortably and is located in the bedroom which closes off with French doors. There is a separate seating area with a sofa and refrigerator. Spacious enough where we had in suite massages. The patio... More

Our family loved our stay at Canal Park Lodge. We had a room with a lakeside view, a must if you love watching ships. This was our third stay at this hotel. Each time we had excellent experiences. The staff is very friendly and extremely polite and helpful. The hot breakfast is great. There is plenty of variety, even for... More

We had a great stay at this very convenient location. The hotel has a nice ambience and was up to our expectations, very clean and comfortable and I would call it upscale. It over looks beautiful Lake Superior just off the board walk that provides a short walk to Canal park, the lift bridge, many restaurants. It has complimentary hot... More

My daughter and I spent 2 nights at Canal Park Lodge recently. We found the hotel to be very clean and the staff to be very friendly. The hotel is located in a very convenient location in Canal Park. The nightly rate is high but comparable to the other hotels in Canal Park. We would definitely return if in the... More

We stayed in 2 queen room overlooking the lake. The view was awesome. Room size and furnishings were nice. We enjoyed the patio on the lake and going to the beach. Right on the lake walk and close to a number of restaurants. We enjoyed Pizza Luce and Canal Park Brewery. The mock bar in the evenings was nice but... More

This newer hotel provides a slightly upscale choice among the row of Canal Park venues. Better materials & workmanship are apparent, designs are fun (wastebasket in shaoe of an ore boat funnel), & the breakfast bar contained a new twist - make your own bfast burritos, yum! We liked being able to purchase a mixed drink after a warm walk... More
