I have stayed at this hotel in the past and generally have been pleased. However, my latest stay confirmed what others have told me that this place has gone down hill. The first time we used the toilet in our room it over flowed. Water and let's just say things that come up in toilets (not ours by the way... More

The Inn on Lake Superior is located in Canal Park, which is within walking distance of many restaurants and attractions. The proximity to the lake gives the place a terrific feel. Rooms are very quiet. Breakfast is provided and abundant. All the staff did a tremendous job. This is my favorite place to stay in Duluth.
