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

This was the second time we've stayed at the Lake Shore. It is a converted older motel, with rooms that are adequate, but nothing special. What is special are the grounds, landscaping, view of Lake Michigan, and the fire pits. Guests love to gather around the fire pits and chat while enjoying sunset with a beverage.

I have never been to any of the great lakes so was really looking forward to the trip. The hotel has not been updated for a while, but I loved it as it has a wonderful, comfy feel and the rooms are very cozy. Outdoor pool that was heated. Had a great continental breakfast and located perfectly with a private... More

A quiet, comfortable, family-owned and operated, beautifully maintained and landscaped place with a panoramic view of Lake Michigan from atop a bluff. It is in a residential area but there is plenty to do a short drive away (shopping, restaurants, galleries, winery, blueberry picking, etc.) This is also a great place to do nothing at all - curl up with...

My wife and I spent two wonderful weeks at Lake Shore Resort, and once again it has impressed us as a near-perfect gem of a summer resort. The grounds are manicured to a high degree, rooms are comfortable and well appointed, great breakfasts, and always the Lake view and beach. The property is situated along a residential road of beautiful... More

Just returned from this property. It has everything you need for a great stay. The room was nice and had plenty of storage space. The view of the lake was nice also. The private beach has a few steps to climb but it sure is worth it. They have tables, chairs and umbrella's for your use as well as kayaks... More

At first, I did not want to write a review, fearing the word would be out on this spot. This is truly a gem worthy of a great review. The resort is hidden away at the end of a lake front road, but only minutes from town. The resort itself has been impeccably maintained and your hosts do a great... More

What a most excellent spot. Close enough, but far enough removed from the tourist activities. The grounds are extremely well kept, the staff is very friendly, helpful and always available. The pool is crystal clear, and open just about dawn to dusk. Breakfast was nice. Our visit was just right. We will be back. One bit of advice, bring along... More
