When traveling to our favorite city in Minnesota, we always try the Canal Park first. We spend a little more but our BIG king suite is gorgeous and we LOVE it. We like to just stay in our suite and sit on our deck and enjoy Lake Superior. Order in and enjoy. Thanks for another great stay Canal Park Lodge.... More

We stayed at the Canal Park Lodge for 3 nights. This place is awesome. It is within walking distance of just about anything you want to do in the canal park area. The only reason we took the car out Wednesday was due to winds and some rain. It is right on Lake Superior with wonderful walking paths up and... More

We had an awesome stay at the Canal Park Lodge over Labor Day weekend! We are VERY picky about the hotels we stay in and chose this hotel based on the reviews. We had a great room on the main floor with a patio facing Lake Superior. It was a beautiful view! The room was larger than we expected, very... More

We have stayed at most of the Canal Park hotels and this is our favorite. Parking has never been a hassle as a couple of the other nearby hotels. The room was very nice, plenty of space and all the usual amenities (did not smell as others have commented). The small bar set up off the lobby was a nice... More

This lodge is beautifully decorated, has a wonderful view and has lots of seating areas where families can gather. The only thing that keeps me from rating it as excellent is the smell in the room. My husband did open the windows and aired it out which helped. The smell seemed to come from the a/c. Fortunately we could turn... More

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
