Wonderful resort! Clean rooms, quiet , nice pool, private beach with lounge chairs! Better than average continental breakfast. Kayaks, bikes All provided. Looking forward to staying longer next year. Rooms cleaned daily, beach towels provided. Nice to have a refridgerator in the room.

My 7 months pregnant wife and I planned to take a romantic "babymoon" and pinpointed the Saugatuck/Douglas area given that it a) didn't require hopping on a plane and b) was less than a 3 hour drive from Chicago. She came across this spot and booked it. First the good. There are quite a few positives. Location-wise, this hotel sits... More

Not sure where 'voxlucis' from Oak Park stayed? but this resort is fabulous! And while I agree the gentleman at the desk could use a lesson on how to talk to guests, he detracted only slightly from an overall positive experience. All of the other folks who work there were very friendly and went out of their way to make... More

I honestly believe the manager to be a well-intentioned fellow who simply has no clue as to the importance of warmth and cheerful accommodation in the Hospitality Industry, or how badly it is lacking at his establishment. The feeling is that you should be grateful to be staying there, which is understandable given that the place is routinely booked solid.... More

Went with 3 other girlfriends and we had a lovely stay. Resort has a Serene setting with lots of grass and seating areas scattered about. We had to pack everything we wanted to do into 1 1/2 days and we had a lot of fun. Breakfast: hard boiled eggs, yummy turnovers, bagels & BIG muffins. OJ and coffee (on the... More

My husband and I just returned from Maui and we can honestly say Lakeshore Resort sunsets can"t be beat! Quiet, relaxing and beautiful setting. Owners and staff are very helpful and friendly. We've look forward to returning every summer for the last 15 years and enjoy the friendly guests we have meant from all over the country.

My husband and I stayed here on a Monday and Tuesday in mid-September. The location of the place is outstanding; right across the road from Lake Michigan in a quiet residential neighborhood. The grounds are very well kept and the owners and employees are very friendly. The rooms are very clean, but they are quite dated. We were also disappointed... More

I read all the reviews and knew ahead of time that this was an original mid-century motel that had its rooms updated at some point. Honestly, you come for the lovely location right on the lake. We were here in late September and of course it was cool..we loved sitting in chairs on the beach watching the sunset. After driving... More

This small motel is away from the touristy scene. The rooms could use some updating and it would be nice to have wifi in the rooms and not just the common areas. Other than that, I have no complaints. Nice access to beach with tables and umbrellas. Weather was not great when we were there so we did not use... More
