we stayed at the canal park lodge for one night in August . it is not our usual spot in duluth but it was available an short notice. what a pleasant surprise. this hotel is finished off much better than average with wonderful little touches of decor. it was the cleanest place we've stayed at in the last few years. the pool was immacculate as was the bathroom, and the view was spectacular. the hotel was recommended to us by a local - and he was accurate. we'll be back.
