We stayed here for two nights on a family vacation. The owners are great and are very helpful. The rooms are older, but well maintained and clean. It is situated between two lakes and provided for a nice view during morning coffee on the patio. Free wifi.

You never know what you're going to get when you make a reservation over the phone, but we were all very pleasantly surprised with the Lakeshor Motor Inn! (Yes, that's how you spell it.) Perfectly clean, perfectly quiet, perfectly comfortable, perfectly reasonable rates! And situated between two lovely little lakes. No continental breakfast, but cafes are always close by in... More

We read the reviews and everyone said don't be put off by the outside. They were absolutely right. When we arrived there were many cars outside this motel, so that made us feel better. We are glad we took the chance. The room was comfortable and clean. Perfect for an inexpensive overnight stay on our way north. The lady that... More

Okay for 1 night stay. Room had a view of lake across street. Room had micro and frig. No breakfast. Non smoking room had strong smell of stale smoke. Bed uncomfortable . Owner nice. Nice path to walk around lake behind motel and another walking path around lake across street.

Our stay at the Lakeshore Motor Inn was like stepping back in time into the late 50's or early 60's. The room was clean, but showed it's age. The thermostat had been replaced, but no one painted around the new smaller one. The bathroom had the original pink fixtures that I assume were installed when it was built. Cute and... More

We found this gem while motorcycling through the iron range. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and tidy and inviting. Nice fridge and microwave. Giant bonus points for the most comfortable bed in history. The price was great and we will definitely come here again on our travels. Loved it.

Hands down my favorite hotel to stay at in Virginia. This is a family owned and operated hotel which means they value the same things I do; clean and respectful service. I sincerely appreciate how simple their reservation system is as well as the smiles and cleanliness of the rooms. I have not gripes about this hotel. It's away from... More

I have stayed at the Lakeshor before and had a good experience. My wife and I stayed here again for a few nights recently. The room we were in was recently remodeled and very nice. Loved that they had free Wi-Fi a lot of places in this price range don't seem too. The owners were really friendly and gave good... More

I arrived to find out that due to an error on my side, I had booked the room for the PREVIOUS NIGHT. Argh! The rest of the rooms were booked. But in an amazing act of generosity, they let me stay in the apartment suite for a reasonable rate. The apartment suite was very clean, cozy and quite comfortable. I... More

I selected this motel because the satellite photograph showed it was right on a lake. When we arrived, we found that the rooms all faced the highway! I could not believe that a hotel on such a beautiful location would have all the windows facing the street. The little window in the bathroom looked in the direction of the lake... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. We often wondered the same thing as you "why did they build facing the wrong way" After speaking with previous owners there use to be train tracks directly behind the motel. We agree that the best views are in the back and we currently are working on plans to add... More
