My first stay at the Inn was very memorable, indeed. I booked a king suite, paid over $200 for the night and ended up with a thread bare room that hadn't been refurbished. The room was filthy. Rings on the table, ring around the toilet. Couldn't see the bottom of the tub for the soap scum. Thread bare towels. Front desk staff could use an inservice on hospitality, give a new meaning to ice blondes. Kids running up and down the halls yelling at all hours. College kids partying outside throughout the night. If there is an upside, it's the continental breakfast.

Room Tip: Stay elsewhere.

Another great stay at the Inn! The renovations looked so amazing. The smores at night were a great thing for my boyfriend and I, it makes a great starter for a romantic night, especially if you follow it with a dip in the pool on the roof under the stars! It was great walking distance from some great places, and had great views of the town no matter what window you looked at. Even the breakfast was upgraded from before, the food is great with great varieties to choose from.

If anyone needs a romantic get-a-way, girls weekend, or a fun night with the family, this is the best place to go!

Great rennovations. Hotel staff is very friendly and will help you with whatever you need. The roof top pool is a bonus and was enjoyed by all in our group. The location couldn't be better; walking distance to fun shops and great restaurants. Beautiful views of Lake Superior. Lots to do any time of year. I have stayed at this hotel numerous times over the past 10 years and highly recommend it. I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: A room facing the lake is the best. If you want a bit more peace and quiet, ask to be away from the...

We had yet another great stay at the Inn on Lake Superior this weekend. We stayed on the ground level, lake-view double queen room with sofa sleeper. The room was very clean and worked great for our family of 4. We loved the waffles at breakfast, and enjoyed the smores in the evening. The kids had a great time in the pool. It would have been perfect if we had nicer weather, but it was still a great mini-vacation. The staff are so friendly and accommodating. They were smiling all the time - a clear sign that they enjoyed what they do and enjoy who they work for!

Room Tip: No on-site restaurant at the hotel - but plenty of dining options to choose from in Canal Park! The...

This hotel was great! The staff was efficient and friendly. We had a lake view king room that was clean, spacious, and quiet. The location was perfect for a weekend of dining and entertainment. We were well within walking distance to several great locations and took a cab in the evening for a minimal cost. Overall, a great place to stay in Duluth!

Room Tip: The lake view king room was very spacious - third floor was nice and quiet.

A group of us decided to take a break from the cities and spend a weekend in Duluth at The Inn On Lake Superior. We had a room on the 3rd floor that had a stunning view of Lake Superior. The room was large and included a mini-fridge, microwave, and flat screen TV. It was very comfortable for the four of us and the beds were cozy and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the outdoor rooftop hot pool, it was the perfect way to unwind from a day of skiing. The Inn is also within walking distance to many of the restaurants and shops of Duluth. We walked to the Lake Avenue Cafe for dinner and were not disappointed! We also took advantage of their evening smore's bar...what a fabulous idea! The free buffet breakfast was wonderful and had a variety of things to choose from (hot or cold). We would definitely stay here again. It made winter seem very bearable!

Room Tip: Definitely request the 3rd floor and a room facing Lake Superior.
