If door slammed hard enough it would latch and stayed somewhat warm. Day two however after a long day of work, we turned on microwave which apparently was... More

Pulled into the hotel at around 3 in the afternoon, and there was a passed-out, dirty man draped over a picnic table outside. Methed-out looking couple sitting on the steps to the second level, rambling, arguing, and chain smoking. Building seemed in total disrepair judging from exterior alone. However, we had reservations (had I known how sketchy this place looked,... More

The place smelled of urine. The bathroom floor left a dirty print when we walked in. We ran the a.c. to get the smell of smoke out of a "no smoking" room. This was the worst room we ever stayed in. We tried to get our money back but it was too late. The only bright spot was that the... More

Hair on the bed upon check in, a real indicator of the overall cleanliness. Mold in the shower. A #$&@ty breakfast (donut gems and Honeybun's, all aldi little Debbie fakes), and they put it out at 7, instead of 6, so the bumbleclot owner can save a few $$$ on the working guests who have to be gone. I also... More

The staff are rude and know nothing about customer service. Telephone doesn't work. No light bulbs in main lamp, bathroom has water damage,... More

The Lakeview Inn is a good value. While worn and in need of cosmetic repair, our room was clean and pleasant. The location seemed safe and the rates were much cheaper than any other respectable hotel in town. We were happy with our visit, and would gladly stay there again. The Inn consists of a few separate buildings, with most... More
