Lake Inn is a basic motel. But it meets those expectations. If you expect a national chain, with things like a pool, in room Wi-Fi, etc. you will be disappointed. Having seen some negative comments about the motel, let me explain a few things. Lake Inn is located in Hardy, VA. Hardy is a small community….it is so small it... More

We booked our room in March for our July vacation. The staff on the phone was friendly and my reservation process was easy.. The staff at check in was polite and provided us with discount meal/golf tickets and plenty of brochures and maps for site seeing. Our room was clean and already cool when walking in. This trip we also... More

I really liked the Lake Inn. It's clean, the employees were helpful, polite and friendly. Did I mention it's clean? Our room was absolutely spotless when we checked in. It's very convenient to the lake and to stores and restaurants. It's not fancy, pretty basic actually, but if you're not looking for all the bells and whistles, it should suit... More

We had started off at the Westlake hotel after needing a good place to finish our vacation. The room was clean but a bit dark. Had good AC and the bed was king sized and quite comfortable. The room also had 2 recliners which were a bit worn. The shower had plenty of pressure and was welcomed. The water heated... More

After reading the two 2008 reviews I was extremely hesitant to make reservations at this motel, especially after reading about the cockroach,  but I rationalized that by now all the problems would have been addressed. So we made reservations for two days to attend a wedding. We were particularly encouraged by the two reviews in August 2012 and felt a... More

We were a bit leery to stay here because of the lack of recent reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised. We wanted an inexpensive place to stay on the lake and this was just the ticket. We had two non smoking queen rooms. They gave us rooms beside each other which were great. The rooms smelled of cleaner, but at... More

My husband and I decided on a whim to take our boat up to Smith Mountain Lake for 2 days, and just needed an inexpensive place to stay for 1 night. After calling several places in the area, we decided to stay at the Lake Inn. Like I said in the title, it suited our purpose. I thought the service... More

I have stayed at this hotel for the past four years and spent well over a thousand dollars with them. - namely because until this summer they were the only motel in town. My stay this past weekend was horrible. We rented four rooms for one night (three for our family and one for a friend). After coming back from... More

On the surface a really great room. Problem appeared on the 3rd day of our stay when a cockroach ran across the room! Unfortunately it was late friday night and the motel was full so another room was not available. The next day we were told it was a "water bug", but NOT in my opinion, having seen roaches all...
