Great location in Canal Park. Overlooks Lake Superior and is on the Lakewalk. Check-in staff was friendly. Rooms were clean and had most amenities (hair dryer, fridge, etc.). Breakfast is what you may find in a Hampton or similar type restaurant. Decent. Free Sunday Star Tribunes (but not a Duluth paper, which was odd). The large patio on the lake... More

We've stayed at every hotel in Canal Park. This was our first stay at Canal Park Lodge. It was very nice. Unfortunately, all but one hotel in Canal Park require a minimum 2 night stay in the busy season & Canal Park is one of them. We intended to stay 2 nights but found out the day of check in... More

Excellent spot for a family get together with plenty of shops and resturants nearby. Prices go up if you stay for a Saturday night only during the busy season regardless of the number of rooms and total nights we booked. Breakfast is very good witha large variety but the seating area is very crowded. We had a lake side with... More

It was my brother's 66th birthday, so I gave him two nights here with his wife and grand daughter. They truly enjoyed the cleanliness, comfort, free appetizers in early evening and good breakfasts and coffee. They enjoyed the view of lake from the balcony. My brother, the proud possessor of a Cuban from another sibling, was disappointed that he could... More

This was the first stop on our motorcycle trip honeymoon. Very nice that they have covered parking near the front of the hotel dedicated for motorcycles only. This is the only hotel in Canal Park that offers this! The hotel was very clean and new. Comfortable bed. Staff were very friendly. Excellent view of the lake from our room and... More

We stayed here for the Aug long weekend. The location is excellent, close to the water, shops and restaurants. The included breakfast was quite good with a fair bit of choice. In the evenings there was a cash bar with nice canapes. The room was spacious and comfortable with a great mattress. We loved having our breakfast outside on the... More

When I called to reserve my room, I talked to a very nice lady who informed me that they only had one room left and that was a King City View. We have 3 kids, (9,8,&5), so I wasn't sure that would work, but she assured me there was plenty of room for a roll away...which after looking, they didn't... More

Great location - right as you enter Canal Park, easy walking distance to everything. (But, far enough away from the lift bridge for the baby's afternoon naps!). Staff were very helpful (huge thanks to Becky for remembering us and getting us a room for a second night!). The hotel was sold out both nights, but there were still plenty of... More

Our fIrst visit to Canal Park Lodge did not disappoint. From the moment you walk in, you are taken back to a high end Up North lodge, with great decor. The front desk staff are very attentive and helpful. We had a king room on first floor facing the lake. We had a great view...the only thing that would have... More
