We have used this place for 5+ years now and although it truly excels at nothing, it never fails to get 4 out of 5 in all the things that matter to us. Very friendly, welcoming, decent rooms, lovely lounges, great location and fine value for money (if you choose your dates right). I was heading north up from Tennessee...

My family loves to stay in this hotel whenever we visit Duluth. The proximity to the Canal Park shopping is wonderful. The hotel is also right next to Canal Park Brewing Company which has good food. My husband and I upgraded to a Whirlpool suite upon check in. The suite was gorgeous and worth the additional money. It had a...

Nice and clean and very close to the 'action' in Canal Park. It is a tad pricy, but the location makes up for the extra price as you are within walking distance of entertainment (restaurants, DECC, etc). Rooms are updated and clean. Continental breakfast is above average. Would highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Duluth.

Haven't stayed here for a year or so, largely because they are not pet friendly, one of the only negatives I have for this property (and that's a shame, they're located right on the waterfront and its a great place to walk with dogs.

We spent two nights at the Canal Park Lodge in August. This was our second visit; we had also stayed here in 2013. The location of the lodge is great: the lake shore is right outside the back door, several great restaurants and shops nearby, the aerial bridge within close walking distance. A bit further of a walk (but still...

My wife and I spent two nights at Canal Park Lodge on a combined shopping and getaway. It was our first time at the lodge and we will stay again. Upon arrival we decided to upgrade to a lakeview corner suite. Everything was great, I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Staff was efficient and helpful, free breakfast very good,...

We always stay at the Canal Park Lodge. Our trips to Duluth or the North Shore start with checking in at the lodge. We prefer a lake side room with a view of Lake Superior. The rooms are clean and nicely furnished, the staff is helpful, friendly and welcoming. They have a great breakfast, a perfect start to a day...

Almost everything about this hotel deserves praise. Staff especially were extremely helpful and pleasant. We stayed over a long weekend with a large group. The location can't be beat. The view from our room was incredible (lake view). Breakfast is free and offers Belgian waffles, cheesy hash browns, and hard boiled eggs, along with normal continental breakfast fare. If there...
