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

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

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
