In my opinion Grady's is the best motel on highland lake. The owner, Bill, is very nice. The rooms are always clean and spotless when you arrive, you have access to canoe's, a paddle boat, a badminton net, horseshoes, and many other activities. Right next to the lake with a sandy beach. Bill will take you or your kids out... More

We really enjoyed staying here! The rooms had great amenities and access to the lake and boats, and they were clean and nicely decorated but the beds in our room had pretty hard mattresses - but I like my mattress super-soft. The price was good and the owners were really nice!

Thank you for taking the time to mention your stay with us. We enjoyed your visit. We are pleased that you enjoyed your time here. Beds are a difficult thing. We all have our preferences I guess. That said, we are happy that you enjoyed your visit. Please come again More

Friendly place, great service, spotless room, kitchen area with stove and full size refrigerator, etc. Only drawback was the guy next door (one night) who snored so loud I could hear him through the wall. I travel frequently for work. This room was the cleanest I had ever stayed in. There is a lake view, too - which I missed... More

I am beyond puzzled why anyone would have a negative review for Grady's. My family has vacationed there for years. Bill, the owner, goes above and beyond to accomadate us and make our stay enjoyable. My children also love it, and look forward to staying there. The environment is safe, clean, and relaxing. I couldn't recommend it more!

Grady's West Shore Motel truly has a warm family environment, a multitude of family activities,beautiful scenery all provide for a memorable vacation. Great memories and wonderful friendships keep my wife and I returning here for our vacation for over 20 consecutive years.

Our family started coming to Grady's 19 years ago. What started as just "a nice place to stay" on a very peaceful lake, has turned into someplace very dear and near to our hearts that we choose to revisit every year! From the time our 3 children were little to them now being young adults, Bill and Linda have always... More

This place has it all.....beach, hammock, boating, fishing, campfire, clean units with full kitchens and great grounds. The Gradys treat guests like family and that is why people return year after year.

Very uncomfortable visit. If you are going here make sure you bring your own towels and toilet paper because you will not be given extra if you need it. Have kids ? Don't bring them , for they will be exposed to a forty two year old man who still lives with his parents who is extremely aggressive. Unless you... More

One of the most difficult and painful decisions to make in the hospitality business is to ask a long time guest not to return. Our lives involve our family, our home and our business and we always strive to find a healthy and positive balance for all of our guests and family members. We wish all of our wonderful guests...
