We live right outside the Twin Cities and have traveled to Duluth numerous times over the years. Our Go To hotel has consistently been The Inn On Lake Superior. The rooms have all of the amenities including free soda and water waiting for you in the refrigerator, microwaves, plenty of towels, comfortable beds, and my favorite, use of binoculars that...

We have stayed at the Inn multiple times, most recently in November 2016. We love the central location and always ask for a lakeside room, so that we have a balcony overlooking Lake Superior. The breakfast is is good and we enjoyed the outside fire pit with s'mores at night. We had a 2-night stay. After the first night, we... More

Just returned from a great trip to the Inn with my three grandchildren. The room was clean and very spacious for 4. We enjoyed using both pools. Breakfast was wonderful with great variety to satisfy everyone's tastes. The area was clean and the food was always swiftly refilled. We missed out on smores as we were at Bentleyville. I loved...

We spent our anniversary at the Inn and had a great time. The check-in staff was very friendly and efficient. The lakeside room was large and well designed.

My wife and stayed here for our anniversary and had wonderful time. The front desk staff was very efficient and polite. The room was very large and the view of the lake was exceptional. We were given a bottle of champagne and chocolates for our celebration which was unexpected but was greatly appreciated. Hope to come back next year.

We were excited to have a relaxing, stress free weekend in Duluth. We had heard good things about this hotel, so we decided to book a room although there were more affordable options.

A solid family hotel that provides a comfortable room and some decent amenities in a tourist location. Nothing about The Inn would be mistaken for luxury accommodations. The rooftop hotel is a bit too small and the views from the rooftop a bit too limited to be much more than a gimmick, but overall the hotel was a solid place... More

Relax with a view of the lake. Take a bike ride with the hotel bikes. Pet friendly. Several restaurants are within a short walk. Many things are close within walking distance that make it a great vacation spot.
