We stayed for just one night and had an excellent stay. The staff was extremely friendly. The outdoor pool was amazing. The beds were comfy. And the breakfast was very good. The s'mores they serve at night was a fun treat. My only complaints- the pool area was a little dirty. Not terribly, but there was dirt and garbage under...

My fiance and I travelled to Duluth to see the fall colors last autumn and we really loved The Inn On Lake Superior! The rooms were lovely with a fireplace and view of the lake and there was plenty of close by restaurants to choose from. We were within walking distance of the impressive Duluth draw bridge and had a...

We headed up to Duluth for the night this weekend. I called ahead to see if they had a recliner I could use in our room. (Since my shoulder surgery last summer, I still sleep in the recliner.) She said unfortunately, they only have a few recliners in all their hotels, but she could check their sister hotel for one....

After a few year's hiatus, we returned to the Inn on Lake Superior. We got a great deal on a King Whirlpool Room. One difference I noticed instantly was the lack of 'warmth' during check in. Having stayed in many different hotels during the last year, I have become accustomed to friendly and welcoming receptions but the Manager on Duty...

I received a voucher from my Christmas party. I upgraded to a king/queen sofa room bridgeview and it was awesome! I stayed with another couple so it gave us a little more privacy than a standard room. The room was really nice however the couch cushions have seen better days and the water pressure was a little mild in the...

Love this place, it's been many years since I was here last but good as ever! Beautiful and clean rooms. Love the rooftop pool, and the main pool area as well.

This hotel made our experience in Duluth wonderful. Such a beautiful place. The view from the rooftop pool was breathtaking. The porter, Clint, was especially helpful and very accommodating. He was very easy to talk to.

The Inn is a favorite of ours because of location and service. Welcoming atmosphere, friendly staff, and nightly smores. The roof top pool is always fun, yes even in February in Minnesota. Great location on the canal with plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance.
