Sloppily made stained bedding, moldy bathroom tile, badly stained molding, peeling toilet seat with someone’s curlies, disgusting draperies, and you don’t want to think about what’s all over the headboard. Just gross. There are better stays in Canal Park for the same money. We

The Inn never disappoints! A group of 15 of us visited Duluth a few weeks back for a friends birthday and we chose the inn to stay. Carolyn and Kelsey were amazing and were able to get our rooms set up close together. The smores were a hit as always, as well as the rooftop pool!

This hotel was clean in the rooms, lobby and pool area that I visited, but it's a little rough around the edges. Some of the carpet in the hallways is very worn, the railings in the stairway and pool area looked like they were original to the hotel and the whole place could use

Dear KapiyaKate, Thank you so much for staying with us! We appreciate your business and the time you took to share feedback. Please accept our sincerest apology for the worn furnishings you encountered. As you can imagine, renovating a building as large as ours all at once would be difficult and time consuming. Therefore, we schedule certain projects year by year. This past winter, we repainted the pool area, installed new carpet, and updated our filtration system. We are committed to giving our guests the best accommodations possible, and we hope you'll continue to stay with us as we make more improvements going forward. Sincerely, Kelsey B. Assistant Director of Guest Services

The cost varies greatly. Least expensive stays are in the winter. There are usually promotions on their website. It is always cheaper to stay during the week than on the weekends. Weekends in the summer can be very expensive...upwards of $200/night.

Do you allow small pets?
Jen D, Thank you for your interest in our hotel! I do apologize however we are not a pet friendly hotel. Our sister property The Edgewater Hotel and Waterpark is pet friendly! They offer great lodging for families and their pets! Please feel free to call us directly if we can help with anything else. Sincerely, Carolyn Caskey Front Office Coordinator

Whats the view like?
Kurt W, Thank you for the great question! We have a variety of room types with a variety of views. Our most popular rooms overlook Lake Superior. All of our lake view rooms come with a balcony or patio. From these rooms you have an unobstructed view of our great lake. We do also have rooms that overlook the top of the Aerial Lift Bridge! I hope this helps! Please feel free to call us directly if you would like to discuss this in more detail. Thank you, Carolyn Caskey Front Office Coordinator
