Just checked in and the lady was so nice. Got into the room and the needs have quilts on them. So cute. I love the personal touch, fella low home. We will definitely stay again. The only thing that might be am issue is the parking lot during winter. Across the way it's a beautiful lake that usually has a... More

We went to Minn. to visit our son for 3 days. Wanted somewhere with a reasonable price. When we checked in, the lady at the desk was very friendly. When we got to the room, I was surprised by how very nice the room was. I didn't expect it to be this great. Bed was wonderful. Very clean room. Glad... More

The Lakeshore Motor inn is a very nice place to stay. Do not be scared away by the simple exterior appearance. The rooms are smaller than one would expect at a Holiday Inn but then so is the price. The rooms were very clean, new carpeting, new tiles in the bathroom area. Room comes with fridge, microwave, large flatscreen tv,... More

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
