My daughter and I stopped on the spur of the moment in high summer. We were fortunate enough to find a room at the Canal Park Lodge on the shore of Lake Superior in Duluth, MN. Lovely hotel with a beautiful view of the lake. All staff we interacted with were very helpful and friendly. Cash bar with free snacks... More

Canal Park Lodge was the first place we stayed on the first leg of our honeymoon. It was also the last room in town or at least on the water. Book in advance and don't wait like we did or you will end up paying 250. or more for a weekend night! Still, we enjoyed the luxury beds and linens... More

The location of Canal Park Lodge was perfect for us. We spent a lot of time down at the beach (pebbles rather than sand) behind the lodge. I LOVED that the lakewalk runs right behind the lodge; I spent some time walking on that. It's a short three or four minute walk to the lighthouse by the aerial lift bridge,... More

We had a great time during our stay. We really loved the cocktail hour... It gave us time to spend alone, and to have the option of staying in and enjoying the view of Lake Superior together! It was a little expensive, but its that time of year that everyone is in Duluth! But you can't beat summers on Lake... More

We stayed here for a quilting show for the first time. The rooms were clean and the building was quiet. We had a two queen room overlooking the lake and watched several ships come and go. I was impressed by their no pet policy, which I am sure contributes to the cleanliness of the hotel. It is also a huge... More

Stayed over the 2013 July 4th weekend, and had a really good stay. The walls are cement and the doors to the rooms are thick and heavy. Sure you could hear folks in the hall sometimes, but this makes the hotel very quiet place to stay. Included in the price of the room is a hot breakfast as others have... More

We stayed over the July 4th Weekend, in a room overlooking Lake Superior. Our room had a fridge and microwave. It was quiet despite being completely full, with many families with small children. We bought a drink (free appetizers) and sat outside watching walkers, bikers, and horse-carriages go by. Service was very friendly. Breakfast was fine--lots of options, including designer... More

I was staying up at Canal Park Lodge for business and it was a nice hotel. Staff was friendly, we used their meeting room, which was nice. Continental breakfast was ok, not great. But there are plenty of really good breakfast places in Duluth, so that's not a huge problem. View of the lake from the room is great. Easy... More

Our king suite on the third floor exceeded all expectations! Absolutely gorgeous, spacious, clean and spectacularly scenic. A little on the pricey side, but worth every penny. It was a cold and wet day, so our amazing balcony was rather blustery, but we appreciated it, nonetheless. The breakfast was way better than most continental spreads, and the front desk staff...
