Lakeshor Motor Inn is a hidden gem in Virginia, MN. Nice clean rooms at a very affordable rate gives you a few extra dollars in your pocket with which to enjoy your visit. A few short blocks from the action and a grocery store and gas station within sight. The staff and owners are wonderful people and made me feel... More

Lady who checked us in was friendly but not very talkative. Rates are reasonable. Rooms all lppk out on the lake which is across the street. there were four guys and we had... More

I travel to northern Minnesota a few times a year and always stay at the Lakeshor Motor Inn when I am in the area. I use it as a base to visit Virginia, Ely, Eveleth, Chisholm and Hibbing before I drive back down to Duluth and points south. The motel is clean and comfortable and has everything I need for... More

Rooms were clean. Double beds only. Located between two little lakes. Lake behind the hotel has a walking path all the way around it. No breakfast at this location but it is located right by a Holiday Gas station and a grocery store. If you are just looking for a no frills and simple place to sleep this is it.

Enroute to Canadian fishing, and just looking for a place to sleep, this place fills the bill. Not fancy, but comfortable. It is located well off Rt. 53, but Virginia is not so big that finding it was a problem. Thanks Tripadvisor for another great recommendation.

This is the way you want to be treated when you travel! We stayed here on a skiing trip to Giant's Ridge in Biwabik, MN. We were treated very well. The rooms are small, but very clean and the service was wonderful. The mattresses are very comfortable and the motel was nice and quiet. The price was wonderful, too! I... More

Stay here. It overlooks two lakes. It's small and older, but has microwave, fridge, and decent beds. The hosts were very nice, talking with me about loons, birds, for awhile. Said they see "bush" wolves, eagles, black bears, loons, even pelicans one time.

The Motor Inn stay was wonderful! Very friendly owners. The lakes around it added to the charm. I would highly recommend this motel. It was well worth the price. It was the perfect mid spot for sight seeing as we had never been in the area before. Perfect town for dining out and getting on the highway to Ely and... More

We stayed two nights in the suite. It has a bedroom, living room, kitchenette, couch and easy chair, two flat screen TVs and a comfortable queen bed. Everything was clean.
