The Canal Park Lodge has it all! Great location, beautiful decor, unbelievably clean and well kept, and a front desk staff that is not only friendly and accommodating, but extremely competent as well. I would absolutely recommend this place to family and friends! We stayed over Labor Day weekend.

Lucky me! Cancelled flight kept me an extra night in Duluth, MN. But how lucky to find this gem of a hotel! Great front desk service and friendly staff. Perfectly located on the Lake Front, short walk from the iconic lift bridge and easy access to restaurants, coffee house and shops.
Beautiful interior décor in the lobby however the rooms are large and clean but somewhat dated. Couldn't get great wifi in the room so spent a good deal of time in the lobby and pool area. Pool and hot tub are fabulous, welcoming feeling in the lounge and happy hour bar set up in the lobby! Free breakfast buffet with make your own waffles! Nice touch.

Great little surprise in Duluth.

Room Tip: Go for the Lakeview...

The Lodge is in the perfect location at the beginning of Canal Park. The Lakewalk is right outside their back door. The staff was friendly, and the included breakfast had a variety of items. The Lodge was clean, and had a nice openness to the guest area with large windows looking out to Lake Superior. The check out wasn't until noon so we were able to walk to Leif Gardens and back in the morning and not have to move our car. The public parking is rather expensive and sometimes tough to find. We were very pleased with our choice to stay in Duluth.

My family loves this hotel.

There are four main options to pick from if you want to stay waterside in Duluth ... this one, The Inn, and then a Hampton and Comfort Suites. I have stayed at the Inn twice before, this was my second time at the Lodge. And it wins, hands down!

The Inn is feeling a little rundown and outdated. The Lodge, is the newest (I think!). You must stay in a room with a balcony - because really, what is the point in not staying on the water?

The staff is great - friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean and accommodating. All rooms have fridges and microwaves - a "must" for a family on vacation with kids. The breakfast is included in you nightly rate - for being a "free" breakfast, it far exceeds expectation. The afternoon free cookies are a favorite with the kids.

We plan to return for our annual family Duluth trip again next year. Thank you for a great visit!

First, the location is along the shore of Lake Superior, with the board walk in front of the hotel. We relaxed with the complimentary Breakfast on the front deck overlooking the various activities that surround Canal Park. The Hotel is very quiet, clean and a accommodating and friendly staff. The Canal park area has many dining and shopping experiences, as well as things to do. You will enjoy your stay.

Room Tip: The Lake Superior side is preferred, but city side gives a view of Duluth as well as Canal Park.
