“Repeat Guest - Excellent Location and Amenities - Read if you have Apple devices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

This is now our hotel of choice after staying at the Inn on Lake Superior several times a year for many years. We love the lodge because it's cleaner, has a nicer pool, better parking, the rooms are in better shape and a superior breakfast. However this is our third stay in 2012 and again the wifi and wired Internet is terrible on our Apple devices, including a new MacBook Air and iPhone 5. It seems to be an issue with their hardware but has yet to be resolved. We originally brought the issue to their attention in June of 2012 and again in September. Hopefully they will have it fixed early in 2013.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

I stayed here in July, 2012. I had wanted to stay here for a long time because of how it looks on the outside-very nice grounds, clean, and right on the Lake's edge. I stayed in a room with 2 queen beds and a balcony. the bathroom was large and very nice, modern. The patio had a small table and a couple of chairs and our view of Lake Superior was great! I had requested a rollaway bed, which was not in our room apun arrival. I did have to call down to the desk and they said they would bring it up to the room. We were leaving, but said that was fine if they brought it when we were out. They did not deliver the rollaway, so we had to call again and they brought it right up to us, so not really that big of a deal. They also did not charge us for the rollaway since the room description shows that it sleeps 5 people, but there were only 2 beds. The inside of the hotel is beautiful and clean. There are bikes right out front that can be rented. The breakfast was great and there was plenty of variety. It is also within walking distance of all the fun things to do in Canal Park. It was a bit pricey, but so are all of the other hotels in canal park. I would love to stay here again! I do not think there is a restaurant on site, but it is close to many restaurants. I gave it an excellent review in the restaurant category because the breakfast was so good and they have complimentary Caribou coofee in the lobby.

Room Tip: Beautiful view from the lake side of hotel.

This is my first stay at this property. I could not believe how amazing this hotel is. It was extremely clean, large, and comfortable. The breakfast was better than any I have had at any other hotel. The staff were pleasant, efficient, and extremely polite. I was here on business. I definitely will stay here again! The area around the hotel was very busy, there was a hockey team staying there, but is was very quiet.

Room Tip: Lake side room was amazing. I loved the patio.

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.
