Stayed here on a surprise Birthday for my Fiancé, the hotel was absolutely perfect, from the second you walk in the door. The room we ordered was a suite with a jacuzzi and it was by far the nicest room I've ever stayed in. Staff is friendly and resourceful, I highly recommend you stay here, I'll always go back!

Everyone on the staff was very friendly and eager to help out with anything we needed. The pool was a wonderful size and my daughter loved being able to play. The views were amazing and the sights were grand. Overall I give this hotel and BIG 10 Stars for being comfortable, amazing and wonderful.

Good customer service and continental breakfast was great. Beautiful location right on Lake Superior and easy walking distance to Canal Park. Only draw back was there was a weird odor in the hotel room throughout the weekend that never seemed to go away.

I have been staying at CPL for business and pleasure for about eight years. I've always had a great experience. Large quiet rooms, great breakfast in the AM and you can't beat the location in Canal Park. Lot's of good dining within walking distance. It's a great place to bring kids, nice pool and, did I mention breakfast?

Very polite and helpful staff. The lodge is nice and the rooms are very nice and clean. Place could use a little more dusting, but it is a lodge with lots of wood. Several sitting areas with fireplaces and tvs. Great, tasty, hot, full breakfast in a huge dining area with tv. Happy hour snacks to hold you over till... More

The service at the hotel is outstanding starting with the front desk staff. We originally booked into a city view room. At check in I enquired with Ken, working the front desk, about how much more it would be to get a lake view room. Ken worked his magic and found us a lake view room with an outstanding view... More
