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

It is very clean and neat, has wi-fi and a good TV, the beds are comfortable, the owners are pleasant and the location was great. We had our small dog (at only $5/night)and the dog and I walked around the lake on the paved... 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.

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
