We have a cabin in Harrison, but while were working making it livable my daughter and I stayed here. The room was a nice cookie cutter hotel room. Nothing stood out to make it special or bad. The view out back and the lake access made the big difference. It was just beautiful out the back and my daughter really... More

Basically 12'x12' cinder block room. With a small bathroom to match. Outdated but did its purpose. Came at night guy was not as happy as he could be seeing how I got a few rooms for me and workers. One heater not that hot other burnt hair smell. I imagine in summer by out side pics a lot nicer out... More

When I called to book a room, a refrigerator was more important than a lake view. Room 3 has a refrigerator and a lovely covered patio in front. Several of the rooms have gorgeous views, but I had to deal with some real estate business and did not stay in the motel long. Beds were very comfortable. I did travel... More

Very small shower stall, not enough room to bend over and wash feet. Lost my wifi service when owners turned it off and booted it back up. Did not re supply soap and shampoo for 2nd day stay. Good view and sitting area of the lake.

Thank you for your review. We understand that the shower stalls are small by today's standards - there is one in the manager's residence also!. As we update the rooms, we are replacing them with larger ones wherever we can. (TIP: Ask for Room #7) When straightening rooms, the cleaning staff should replace used soap and shampoo; we regret they... More

First of all, I arrived at the motel at 10pm, and left at 5am, so I didn't get a really full experience of this place. The good: The room was quite clean and cozy. A nice television and little coffee maker in the room. The bathroom was tight but it didn't bother me. There was a thermostat in my room... More

Thank you for your review of our little piece of paradise. We regret that you were inconvenienced during your short stay by a pesky June bug and we wish you could have lingered a bit longer in the morning to hear the loons out on the lake. As our place has a small "mom-and-pop" style and there are only two... More

I was wary if staying in a motel in Harrison. Fortunately I was able to get a room here. The motel is about 50 years old, so don't expect gleaming marble or current styles of wallpaper but that's not important. The rooms were sort of small, but clean and comfortable. I would recommend this motel if your a skier or... More

I'm almost reluctant to give this place a good review for fear that we won't be able to get a room here in the future if too many people decide to stay here. We stayed at the Lakeside while participating in an off-roading weekend at nearby Rocks and Valleys. My first pleasant surprise was that the Lakeside is actually along... More

We stayed at this very nice little motel for one night recently as we were in the area for an event. It was so nice (clean room, beautiful location right on a lake) that we are hoping to go back for a longer visit. We had breakfast nearby at the S&R Diner and would definitely go there again as well.

No pool but clean and better internet than the hotel we stayed at last year. Also $46 dollars cheaper and lakefront. Less than ten minutes from Snowsnake for tubers and skiers. And by the way there is a microwave and ice machine just outside the office.We had friendly staff and no problems during our stay. Thanks.
