Comfortable, welcoming inn to stay at right on the water! Very clean rooms and everyone had a perfect view. There was a happy hour every day and you could sit outside and watch the ships come in. In the winter, you could sit next to the fireplace with a nice glass of wine.

We travel to Duluth every summer, and the highlight of every trip is our stay at Canal Park Lodge. We splurge and opt for the more expensive rooms that have balconies with a lake view. It is so awesome to watch the large freighters go in and out of the harbor. Our kids also love this particular part of the... More

We stayed here as a family of 5, our stay here was great. Friendly, helpful staff, they were very accommodating when we asked to switch rooms. The continental breakfast each morning was good. The beds are a bit on the firm side, but the linens are really nice. The room was clean. The location is superb, we could walk to... More

We came to Duluth for a job interview and stayed at the Canal Park Lodge. We were happy with the large rooms which were clean and attractive. The hotel was cute and right on the lake which was a great location for walking to shops, restaurants, and enjoying the lake. I was, however, very disappointed with the customer service. We... More

Wonderful hotel, great area, good views, breakfast is always great. Staff always helpful. Close to downtown shopping area and a 10 minute drive to mall. Very quaint area surrounding the hotel, including restaurants and local brewery.

I needed to get away and decompress after a stressful couple of months. I decided to try Canal Park Lodge, as I hadn't stayed there before. I have never had such an amazing, restful experience in a hotel before, like I did at this hotel. The room was great with high ceilings, so it feels very roomy and it was... More

Adjacent is the Canal Brewing Company where you can find the standard brew house food and some interesting beers. The lodge is a medium-sized hotel with approx. 120 rooms. Rooms are spacious, interior in brown colors. The... More

We stayed for two nights. The hotel is clean, beds were ok, breakfast was ok. The free wi Fi was terrible. We had a lake view window. Missed having a balcony. They have limited number of rooms with a balcony. Why the whole backside of the hotel doesn't all have balconies is strange. I guess for the price I was... More

Thank you for your comments. We are competitively priced with the other three hotels on the Lake. The reason not all the Lakeside rooms have balconies is because of easement - the Hotel itself is pushed as far to the Lake as possible so we can provide adequate parking for our guests on the other side. Where our Property takes... More

Can't say enough good things. Highly recommend to anyone that wants to stay near canal park. Close by that you could walk and they had a shuttle bus to take you back and forth. Great service and very clean.

My 80 something parents travel to Duluth every year. In the past they have stayed at a competitor. But this year our reservations were lost. We were able to get 3 rooms a week before our arrival date, including a room on the lakeside. After 2 days my mother decided she needed a kingsize bed instead of the 2 queen... More
