Stayed 2 nights booked 2 queen beds found out they were dbl queen. Very small rooms in need of ceilings looked like they had water damage. No refrigerators and very over priced. Staff was very friendly, but I would not stay again, sorry not for the price I paid

The first thing you notice is the façade on the overhead structure in front of the lobby entrance is literally falling down. The restaurant was decent with good service while we waited to get into the room. For older folks beware, no elevator. In the room we were immediately disappointed by 30 year old furnishings, a picture tube TV (that... More

Stayed at the South Shore while attending a SHS Class reunion. The hotel is definately older, with a 8 ft deep pool (unheard of these days!) and room doors leading to the outside. However, I was pleasantly surprised that the room was very clean, the beds and pillows were wonderfully comfortable, and it appeared that the bedding was relatively new.... More

We planned on camping on our way home to Illinois. Mother nature had other ideas and we needed to find a hotel. We were impressed by the price and reviews of this place and were NOT disappointed. We stayed in the King Deluxe. It was very clean and quiet. I am not sure if we were the only ones on... More

First off, we stayed here one night and next door at Budget Host Inn for the next night, due to vacancy at Shore Inn. I would make this my second choice out of the two.
