Spendy for the amenities you got. Room was clean, bed ok. No remote for bedroom tv. Sleeper sofa was unusable as a sofa or bed, no mattress. When you sat on it you sunk down. Bathroom window would not open or close fully. Facility needs painting and maintenance on exterior, especially second floor where we stayed. Parking lot had lots... More

We apologize that you were unhappy with your stay. Our guests satisfaction is very important to us! Thank you for letting us know about the missing remote control. We have replaced it. There was a mechanical issue with the couch, causing it to sink down, that has been fixed. The exterior of the building was painted in 2012 but we... More

This was a really nice place to stay. It was quiet and very homey. The owners were super, incredibly gracious and helpful. We had a remodeled room, and they did a wonderful job. Very reasonable. We are already planning on coming back and using it as a home base to catch all the sights we missed this time around.

I always get a little worried staying at random hotels but read the reviews on here so gave it shot. Hotel was clean, but needs a little updating. Almost reminded me of staying at my grandmother's house. Bed wasn't too comfortable and could of used different pillows. The only real downside was the room was a little damp making my... More

This was a short trip for work. It was a decent stay. Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. No breakfast but grocery store right across the street. Would stay there again and the price is fair. I would stay here again if I was to go back to this town.

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

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.
