“Decent for the Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

The price was good compared with other locations nearby. The view of the lake is nice. The water park - we skipped that. The breakfast - go down the street. Really, try the Great American Bakery.
Parking is a challenge at this hotel. Overall it is an average stay and getting well worn and in need of remodeling. The staff is well trained and did their jobs well. Stay here, you can do worse.

We went here for the waterpark but were really surprised by how many other things The Edge has to offer and for fun. We loved the arcade and the mini golf. The room was clean and we slept great. Didn't love breakfast so we walked to Perkins each morning and were able to order exactly what we each wanted. It was a close, convenient option. The hotel, the staff and all they offer were perfect for us! Loved the shuttle to Canal Park!

Room Tip: I personally like the lake view rooms!

The waterpark is fantastic for kids. However the hotel itself needs a major revamp. It is not at all clean and although the staff is really nice, I would definitely suggest staying somewhere else! I would never, ever recommend!

We stayed at the hotel for nearly 2 weeks having travelled from the UK. Our older son has joined The College of St Scholastica for the next 4 years and we would certainly stay at the hotel again when we travel back to Duluth. The whole staff team are very friendly and professional, nothing was too much trouble. The rooms and other areas were very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the facilities that were available, particularly the bike loans (free of charge) and the outside pool. We used the water park a couple of times but found ourselves too busy seeing the sights and shopping!! We made use of the bar a few times (always good after a day out) and there are plenty of places to eat nearby. The hotels shuttle service to restaurants is also great, and very accommodating with requested times. This hotel is great value for money and perfectly located to enjoy surrounding areas.

Room Tip: Nice to have 2 rooms (we had for second week, so my 14 year old had some space) and a balcony becaus...

This place is an amazing place to take the family! Excellent staff! Only problem we ran against was the noise issue between rooms at night, we did stay on the weekend. The walls are thin, otherwise this place is GREAT!

I live 110 miles from this property and stay here about 8 times a year when in Duluth for medical or business reasons. I never use the waterpark feature of the property. Over the years I have found the staff to be responsive to requests for rooms away from noise, or located in parts of the building that are easier to access. The property does honor coupons and special pricing. The room always very well cleaned and in good condition, plenty of towels, comfy bed linens and beds. The complimentary breakfast varies depending on the day of the week or time of the year, can be skimpy in choices during the week in off season. There are cost cutting decisions evident - less complimentary newspapers, happy hour beverage 'deal' no longer favors single traveler just wanting one beverage multiple purchase needed. The parking can be difficult when the occupancy is high. I do return repeatedly because it a good location for getting around town and... when placed in a Lake Superior view room it is a treat (even though there is some traffic noise).

Room Tip: Noise greater when near waterpark facilities. Some of the outside access rooms can be cold.

The watermark was great for the kids. The lifeguard staff were very professional and I felt they did a good job making sure kids were safe. The room however was not up to par. Rooms were old, there was a gap between the door and floor which went directly outside. The carpet was very old and needs to be replaced
