“It was OK ...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2006

I stayed in Duluth from the 23rd of October until the 26th. The hotel has an excellent location and is easy to reach. Generally I liked the stay very much.
Annoying was the smell though. It really smelled like some synthetic paint or strong cleaner throughout the entire hotel. After ventilating the room it got better, but it was very cold, so I had no chance to keep windows open.
I was waked up a few times by very loud neighbor guests, slamming doors, and so on. But this is not a problem of the hotel, but the guests. You also hear the very loud horns of the ships moving trough the canal during the night, quite romantic, but I don’t get the point of all the noise in the middle of the night.
Staff was OK.
I would have liked a little bit more of a refined way of serving breakfast for the price of the rooms.

My husband and I have been talking up one of Minnesota's loveliest cities - Duluth - for some time to our Iowa relatives. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law agreed to drive up from Des Moines to join us for a visit. Our trip was made even more enjoyable by the Comfort Suites Canal Park. It is located close to all that the area surrounding the waterway and aerial bridge has to offer. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly, courteous and accommodating. The breakfast buffet is a plus. Would definitely recommend to visitors of all ages.

We loved the city of Duluth. It really has some beautiful architecture. The Canal Park area was very touristy. We were right on the water-the boardwalk was great for people watching. Our room had some issues. The beds were uncomfortable. The toilet broke. The light in the bathroom was broken. The noise from the traffic on Canal was bothersome.
We would probably try another hotel if in the area again.

We stayed 2 nights and were very happy with Comfort Suites. First off, it's location is the closest to the Canal other than the South Pier Inn (which is right on it). From our lakeview room we could watch the ships enter and leave the canal. Walking to the canal takes just 3 minutes or so. Breakfast was OK, capuccino machine is on all the time. Breakfast room is small though and we found ourselves eating on the patio because the tables were full. Pool is OK, on the smaller side but kept at a nice temp. We will stay here again!

We stayed here for one night on our honeymoon. We were heading up to Grand Marais.

The parking was okay. The view was good, although we were here during winter so all we saw was clouds and huge waves and snow/ice falling.

The bed was so uncomfortable. My husband who can sleep on anything even had troubles. They were so so hard.

We ordered pizza in and went to bed early. Internet worked okay. Breakfast was okay the next morning, nice view from the breakfast room.

It was more appropriate for families than couples. We stayed at the Radisson on the way back down to the Cities and that ranked so much better than this place!!!!

We had a lakeside room, during the week, in the off-season. It was quiet and comfortable. The staff was courteous. However, we rely on good high-speed internet and the internet connection was very poor. Wireless was very unreliable & kept dropping our connection. Ethernet was very slow & also dropped the connection. If you don't care about the internet, everything else was fine.
