What a beautiful and peaceful setting! Our room was clean and well maintained. The location was great! Able to walk to town, walk the beach, putt putt nearby and a beautiful park system with hiking trails a short drive. The sunsets were absolutely beautiful. Area was very quiet even being close to town! And if you get the chance don't... More

Really enjoyed our stay here. Our room was a little small, with a double bed, but had a nice little table and chair set which would have been handy for eating in the room. Loved the colors and décor, with the lounge chairs outside. Everything was very clean and well taken care of. One note, though, if you're used to... More

Two newly retired teachers decided to take a 3 day vacation in Port Austin. We selected the Lake Vista Resort in "downtown" Port Austin. The managers, husband and wife, were very pleasant. The resort was so very well maintained and immaculately clean!!! The pool was also spotless and we spent hours there enjoying the surroundings. The resort has a spectacular... More

The hosts of this hotel are lovely and accommodating. We were dummies and forgot to bring towels for our cottage. The hosts had some for us and were really kind about it. The cottages are cozy, clean and comfortable. We stopped in to the office for free coffee and tea in the morning, and a good story. Nice people. Nice... More

Just got back from a three day stay with a girlfriend. Resort was very clean and well maintained. We brought our own coffee pot and coffee as well as cups. We didn't find glassware or cups which were under the sink until the last day. Having the mini fridge and microwave was a plus for us as we brought breakfast... More

We stayed here this weekend....overall it was nice. Very clean and the buildings and grounds are up to date and well maintained. The bathrooms just have toilet and shower, the vanity and sink are in the room itself (our room was a single queen). There's no coffee maker...you have to go to the front desk and they will pour you... More

Definitely a clean motel and well maintained. The outside pool is heated and close to the rooms. Great location to the breakwater and beach. City park is near by and so are places to eat. All within walking distance. Somewhat pricey compared to other motels providing free breakfast. We still would stay here again for the location and quaint town.... More
