“Pleasantly Surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

I booked a room at Clearwater Lakeshore Motel last minute when my boyfriend and I decided we were not going to camp after the Zoo-de-Mack. The room was clean, the view was incredible, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Their rates were affordable, and the continental breakfast had gluten-free options available! We did not take advantage of the pool or spa, so I cannot comment on those. The only complaint I have is how quickly the shower ran out of hot water.

We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: If you stay here, make sure you get a room that will give you a view of the bridge. :)
