We stayed 2 nights and found the location was easy to get in and out of, the view of the lake was perfect, the pool wasn't the biggest but also was deep enough that our 5' tall daughters could jump in the deep end and the 2 hot tubs were nice to have there. Breakfast was a very full one, changing slightly each day - 3 waffle machines was a nice touch as I've been to hotels where you get a long line due to having just one. Had a key that didn't work but they replaced it quickly. Bit of a challenge to use the stairs as they are far from the main entrance if you want to use them to get to the 3rd floor, but the stairs to the 2nd level look nice and are right at the entrance area. The room was a good size and we loved having the sofa bed as a 3rd bed (5 people in one room makes that a big, big asset).

Room Tip: We had a lake view room, very nice view from the 3rd level. 2nd level would probably be best due to...

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay with us! We appreciate the thoughts, and the insight as to your satisfaction. I’m glad we were able to resolve the key trouble quickly. I’m sorry about the challenge concerning the stairs! Many guests use the elevator in the lobby for just this reason. I’m pleased you were able to take full advantage of our hotel’s amenities- from breakfast to the swimming pool, it sounds like you were able to take it all in. Thank you again for your review and kind words. We look forward to seeing you again soon! Don’t hesitate to call us if we can be of any help booking future stays!

I had never stayed at a Comfort Suites before my trip to Duluth, but this hotel exceeded all of my expectations. I chose this hotel because it looked like one of the "upper-class" establishments in Duluth, and also because it was conveniently located in Canal Park. When I walked in, I was met be extremely friendly and helpful front desk staff. We requested a room with a view of the Aerial Lift Bridge and it was fantastic to look out the window and be able to see ships passing underneath the bridge. The room was very spacious, and my bed was super-comfortable. The hotel was in walking distance of pretty much everything we did in Duluth, and the back door leads right onto the beautiful Lakewalk. One morning, we had continental breakfast in the restaurant there. There was an incredible selection of food (try the waffles) and we ate outside looking right out at the beautiful lake--this hotel is literally right on the beach. Staying at this hotel was an amazing experience. I'm sure I'll return to Duluth in the future and this will definitely be where I stay. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Ask for either a lake view or a view of the bridge! There may be an extra expense, but it's def...

We've never stayed at any of the Choice Hotels before, we were very pleasantly surprised at how nice the Comfort Suites Canal Park is. We stayed there on a Saturday night as a family and had a double queen bed suite. The rooms were huge, with the bedroom and sitting room separated from each other by french doors. The room and hotel were very clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. And the complimentary breakfast had enough variety to accommodate everyone's taste.
The mattress was a tad on the firm side. But the mix of hard/soft pillows was really nice. Great location for ship watching! We would definitely return again.

My parents took us to visit Lake Superior when I was a child. When my wife and I moved back to Minnesota with our daughter, the "big lake" became a vacation destination for us. Our children are now grown and they go there with their families. Comfort Suites of Canal Park is the treat we give ourselves when we visit Duluth. The kids and their kids camp, but we get a room with a view of the big lake. We reserve early enough so we get a balcony from which to watch the ships come and go. For us, this is one of the nicest places we stay. The rooms are spacious, the beds very comfortable with more pillows than we can use. There is a sitting area which leads to the balcony. The breakfast provided is tasty and nourishing with some nice touches. The rooms are always very clean, the staff is friendly and accomodating and we love it. We have been staying here for a number of years and we plan to go back again and again!

Room Tip: We like the rooms that have a balcony facing the lake.

We stayed at the Comfort Suites Canal Park from 1/31/2013 to 2/2/2013. We chose this hotel because of its close proximity to the DECC. The rooms were large, clean and modern. We were in a main floor room and still very quiet. Enjoyed the complimentary breakfast-the staff was friendly and helpful. Plenty of restaraunt choices close by which was important during a couple of -20 days! I would recommend this hotel and would stay there in the future.

Room Tip: If you plan to walk for restaraunts or the DECC, ask for a room near the main entrance.

This is one of those head rests you can find all over the U S of A. It is clean tidy smiling slightly worn and effective. The food is mass produced, the customer many but there are some real homely touches such as both firm and soft pillows on the beds, and shipping reports for those who like seeing the monster iron ore ships enter the Harbour just in front of the hotel, as you would expect there is wifi which is a bit variable in strength, the TV lacked all the channels. Plenty of stowage in the bed rooms would be a good base for a North Shore Holiday with a shops and facilities around including the famous lifting bridge. An excellent average place

Room Tip: Ask for East or lake side of hotel.

Thank you so much for the nice comment. We just wanted to let you know that we are under renovation! Our bathrooms are being updated with new granite and tile. We have also replaced our furniture with new sofa sleepers, desks, and ergo chairs. Our staff is excited about these changes and we invite you back to experience our updated look.

Our food is cooked in big batches so that we can timely accomodate between 350 to 400 guests in our breakfast room during our busiest days. Our breakfast manager, Becky, has worked extremely hard with our vendors to get the best tasting eggs, bacon, sausage, etc. for our guests. You can't miss her, she's the one with the huge smile in the mornings. If you have a request, please let her know, she will work to accomodate your breakfast needs.

We hope that our guest service will set us apart from the other hotels in Canal Park.
