I've stayed here twice now for business travel. The staff are polite and efficient. The rooms are large, clean, and comfortable. The location is good for easy access to Hwy 35 and downtown, as well as walking along the shore of Lake Superior. The area around the hotel is busy with tourists and safe for walking around alone (which is not the case with some parts of downtown Duluth). There are a variety of dining options within walking distance. Overall, a good choice.

This is our first time staying in Duluth, and Canal Park Lodge was a great place to stay. It is very clean, roomy and the free breakfast was much better than a holiday inn express or even embassy suites. We would definitely stay there again!

Our stay was fine. The rooms, at least on the lake view side, are long and narrow with a relatively small window. It would be nice to have a small table and a couple of chairs so one could sit and enjoy the view!! Lots of choices for the free breakfast. The location is fantastic! There's much to see and do in the Canal Park area of Duluth harbor.

Room Tip: 2nd floor, lake side offers the best views

This hotel had a great location. It doesn't have a "brand" name, like some of the other ones on the canal strip, but it's so worth checking out. Great ambiance and decor from the moment you walk in. Pete at front desk was amazing! Great service from the staff we dealt with. Views of the water were available from our room. The breakfast variety was great. Slightly pricey...but overall, I would stay here again.

My husband and I had the great experience of staying at Canal Park Lodge this past Sunday. We were impressed by not only the location, but also by the staff, the rooms and amenities, the pool and spa, and were particularly impressed with the breakfast. They served eggs, bacon, waffles, fresh fruit, juices, coffee, etc., etc. Our room was lake-side with a balcony - a bit more expensive but worth the extra dollars. What makes this hotel even a better choice is that a very impressive new brew-pub is being built right next door. We registered for the free-stay drawing and hope we win so we can return this winter and try out the neighborhood brews and food. While there, we walked along the boardwalk to Fitgers to dine and try out the beers at their brewery. We try to get to Duluth at least once/year and will definitely stay here again.

We have stayed at the Canal Park Lodge a few times now. The rooms are in good condition and we really enjoy the decks on some of the rooms for enjoying a beer and the view. The lodge is in a great location with access to the lakewalk and Canal Park. It is an easy walk to Fitger's Brewhouse! There is a also nice patio on the lake side. The lodge was quiet at night and the bed were comfortable.

We were disappointed with the breakfast buffet. It was a very crowded area and each day many of the choices were empty and the staff was not quick to refill them, including coffee. It was easier to get coffee from outside the breakfast area by the front desk. we decided to walk down to Canal Park and get breakfast down there.

It is a good hotel in a great location. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Duluth.

We generally stay at the Inn on Lake Superior but after recent stays where we had headaches with flaky Internet, increasingly run down public areas and just too many loud rambunctious families we opted to stay at the Lodge for our Labour Day escape.

We were not disappointed. Staff are more professional, common areas are nicer and of a higher quality and our room had nicer amenities and bedding. We also didn't have any issues with Internet access and enjoyed the breakfast more at the Lodge.

We'll return and stay again on our next visit.
