My husband and I were traveling back to MD from vacationing in Florida. We were tired from the long trip so far, and wanted to catch some zzz's. We called ahead to a few places first to get rates and availability. We walked into the Best Western just up the street. The front desk clerk immediately informed they had no... More

I was on my way to PA to visit my family & started feeling tired. I stopped by The Lake Marion Inn first bc the motel is actually laid out differently than all the other's. And I'm so glad I decided to stop. The front desk lady (Thelma) was just the sweetest ever & was very helpful with all the... More

The property is not new but under new management that is really trying to make it nice. The rooms are adequate, and the tv, micro, fridge and coffee maker have been upgraded and work well. Very convenient location, plenty of eateries and conveniences nearby and people are friendly. Bed was comfortable. Very good value in my opinion.

We checked in late one evening in Nov/12; only one other room had been rented that nite and it was beside ours. The decor of our room was very tired and dated. We met our next door neighbours shortly after we checked in as they hurriedly left their room with their bags packed. We asked if there was something we... More

Location is just off interstate with numerous restaurants in the immediate area. Front desk was very friendly and check and out was simple, accurate and quick. Internet connection was excellent for computer and phone. Room was equipped with small work table which helped me. Bed was very comfortable and room was tastefully decorated. The inn is of an older period... More

Stayed overnight, wanted to support the local businesses, hotel needs TLC. The bed was very comfortable and the front desk clerks were nice, but rooms are outdated and sparse! AC worked good! TV reception was sketchy at best. No shampoo or conditioner, maybe we had to ask for it? I don't believe there was a hair dryer either. Did not... More

Day 1 started at the small nice Lake Marion Inn. This Inn is simple, clean, and comfortable. Not fancy or flashy - but it was the best night sleep of the trip. The front desk was very nice and the free breakfast was OK.

Traveling home from PA, my grandparents, mother, and I needed a place to stay. The other hotels in the area cost around $100 a night, and we were only going to be there from 11pm until 7am the next morning. We stopped by the Lake Marion Inn. The price was so good that I asked to see the rooms. I... More

At the last minute our plans fell through and we needed a hotel room for our friend's wedding. The owners of the inn were extremely helpful, kind, and considerate. We had to check in late and the girl who was working made sure to write out a letter and make sure that everything was ready when we got there. The... More
