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

Found the staff wonderful and knowledgable. Location was superb as were the rooms and amenities. Hot breakfast was delicious. Wifi was strong and the pool/whirlpool we great. We had a wonderful stay and look forward to another stay.

My girlfriend and I wanted to take in some fall colors and thought the North Shore was the place to do it. We decided on the Canal Park Lodge as the place to stay. Reservations went smoothly as did check-in. The entire facility, and grounds are very well cared for as well as beautiful. I love Mission Style furnishings and... More

We really like this hotel. It's right next to the boardwalk and our room looked over Lake Superior. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were well equipped (refrigerator, microwave, free wifi). Their breakfast is varied and very nice. They have a cash bar every night, and very comfortable sitting areas both inside and outside. Our only complaint is that... More

We stayed here twice. At the beginning of our trip up the north shore and the last night before returning to Minneapolis. It's a lovely hotel. The rooms are large and very comfortable. Clean and quiet. The breakfast is above average too. The only disappointment for us is the high price. I know it was a Friday night and peak... More

We've been coming to Duluth for 16 years now for the Northshore Inline Marathon in Sept. For the past 7 years, we stayed at the Hampton Inn in Canal park. It suited our needs just fine. However, this past summer, we called to confirm our yearly reservation with them and no one could find record of our party of four... More
