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

It's an older hotel but it is clean. My room had a newer full size fridge which was nice. The stove and dishwasher are old but they work ok. The couch in the living room was old and worn...really unusable but there was a comfortable recliner. Nice size bedroom & bathroom. Its completely furnished though some of the cookware really...

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
