My son and I stayed at the INN for one night. Check in was easy and the staff very helpful. We found our room and loved the new decor of the hotel. We have stayed here several times over the years. The rooms were nice and clean and roomy. We stayed in a poolside room so it was a little noisy but the noise did not go past bedtime so it was not a huge deal. The bed was so comfortable and the bedding was very comforting. The room temperature was easy to adjust. There was a microwave and a refrigerator in the room which was a nice plus. Everything was within walking distance on the canal and we loved the bikes available for guest use. The smores were a nice touch right out the back door of the hotel on the patio they also had a nice inside lounge area and provided a nice breakfast. They had a swimming pool, sauna and hottub (only downside the jets were not working) inside and an arcade for kids and a heated pool on the roof very nice! When you walk out the back door of the hotel you are looking right at Lake Superior and can even see the ships going in and out and see the walking/biking path right there. All sorts of food options are along the canal including the maritime museum. VERY VERY GREAT place.

I have been coming for years to this hotel, both with my husband and children, and with my parents. We could sit for hours on the balcony and watch the ships come into the harbor. We always request a Lake side room. We have stayed in the standard rooms and have stayed in the suites. Loved both of them. The breakfast has always been nice, the smores are great. We love walking on the boardwalk and walking to harbor to watch the ships come in. Lots of great shopping and restaurants nearby. The outdoor pool is small, but the indoor pool is really nice. Really nice to do harbor tours and take a drive up lakeshore drive. The hotel is very clean. The bicyces are nice to have to ride on the bike path. Watching the lift bridge is really neat also as the ships go under.

Room Tip: Ask for a lakeside room with a balcony to sit and watch the ships

We stayed in The Inn in early June and enjoyed the ambience and amenities. The room was comfortable and we liked the feature of having the sink outside the bathroom to facilitate morning chores. The hotel is attractive, ideally located, and staffed with friendly helpful folks. The breakfast was great. Couldn't beat the view of Lake Superior and the evening s'mores.

Room Tip: The hotel has a nice breakfast, but no restaurant. It is not a problem since it is located just step...

I really enjoyed my recent stay at The Inn on Lake Superior. My room was huge (king bed with living area - couch, table, chairs, desk) and had a balcony (with table and chairs) directly overlooking Lake Superior. They have a large heated indoor pool/jacuzzi/sauna and a smaller heated rooftop pool. The fitness room is small but adequate. The complimentary breakfast provides a large selection of breakfast favorites, including waffles. The hotel shuttle gets you to and from the airport (and other places around town, if they are not too booked up). My favorite thing was the nice new bicycles you can check out for free to ride along the lake on the bike path right outside the hotel. They also offer S'Mores on the lakeside patio every evening, which was a nice unexpected touch. Overall, a very pleasant place to stay in Duluth!

Room Tip: Try to get a lake-view room on the top floor.

This hotel is located on Lake Superior. They are presently remodeling all the rooms. They offer breakfast every morning and smores at night--as many as you would like! They have two gas pits outside to roast your marshmallows. Everything is laid out inside and you step out to make your own. It is convenient to walk to restaurants, shops, along the lakefront and see the ships come into the harbor. It is just a short walk to the Lift Bridge and museum. We have stayed in the location many times and always enjoy our visit to Duluth.

Room Tip: We stayed in corner room 300--city view-- but could also see the lake. Quiet spot to stay.

This was our first time staying at the Inn. It won't be our last stay. The staff is so friendly, the room was very comfortable and clean. Most of all the hotel is in a great location. It was relaxing to sit on the balcony and have a view of the lake. We felt we got more than we expected. The breakfast had a lot of choices. The chance to make s'mores at night was fun.

The biggest surprise was being "guest of the day" and getting a mug with chocolates and the discount coupons.

Great place! Would encourage anyone going to Duluth to stay at the Inn.

Room Tip: Ask for lakeside. It's beautiful and relaxing to sit on the balcony.

We stayed at the INN over the Memorial holiday. We like to call it our " cabin up north". We have been staying there for the past 15 years off and on and have never been disappointed. The staff is very friendly and helpful, rooms are comfortable and the breakfast is great. The best is getting a lakeside room and sitting on the balcony and watching the ships. Close to the canal, shopping and resaurants.

Room Tip: Third floor lakeside
