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

The lodge is a lakeside hotel with a pebble beach, located at the beginning of the Canal Park. Has a large parking lot. 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

JimPaquette, General Manager at Canal Park Lodge, responded to this review

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.

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

This hotel was beautiful and efficient from check-in to check out. They offered very good, hot breakfast each day. One suggestion for them is to change up the menu for those staying several days. They also offered hors d'ouvres each evening and a cash bar. The snacks were free. The indoor pool was clean and adequate, with a big sunny... More
