We have stayed at Lakeshore for many, many years. Claudia and Steele were great owners and took care of the motel in exceptional ways. We were saddened to learn they sold the property and were retiring but also happy that they could now enjoy what they worked so hard for. We arrived in the afternoon and were able to meet the new owners, Bonnie and Mike Shudarek. It was a pleasure. Both are friendly and so accommodating. We enjoyed our stay and made arrangements for July of 2022. While Claudia and Steele will be missed, they did a great job transferring ownership to people who will continue the Magnet's tradition of great customer service. Thanks Bonnie and Mike ... See you in July. Greg & Patti
Very comfortable and clean motel. We arrived at night so we had no idea about the area. But in the morning with the sun rising...OMG the view...not enough words. The owners are very nice and helpful. As most places, the continental breakfast was just ok. There are few items that the owners will need to update, but I'm sure over time things will be done. I would stay here again if in the area.
This place is the best! Clean rooms, beautiful views, friendly and accommodating hosts - what more could you want! Pet friendly too. The rooms are spotless and decorated so cute. Each room has a lake view. Can't wait to return! Thanks Bonnie and Mike, you guys are the best!!
The couple that own the motel were very helpful. Parking was accessible and good for us as senior citizens, The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The lake was beautiful and clean, Breakfast was amazing with lots of coffee, We will visit that location again, My wife loved the stay,
Comfortable motel at a great price. Bonnie, one of the new owners, is very nice. The quality has not changed. Ice Lake is a beautiful lake. The swimming beach is just down the road. If passing through or staying for a while this is a great choice.
I've been staying at the Lakeshore since I discovered it 15 years ago. I have fond memories of all my stays. Claudia and Steele were fantastic hosts. Sadly, my last stay I learned they have sold the Lakeshote and will be enjoying their retirement. Although I'm happy for them, its sad to know their familiar faces will no longer be there to greet me. Good luck and good health to them both. The new owners will have alot to live up to. Hopefully they will be good custodians of what Claudia and Steele created over the decades.
The owners (Claudia & Steele) are what sets this lodging ahead of all others. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the owners friendly ways make it so relaxing. The lake is beautiful. We like hearing the loons and fishing is very good. The location is centralized so restaurants and attractions are close by. Lakeshore is our home away from home.
My daughter and I spent the night when my husband had surgery done at the nearby hospital. With COVID restrictions, we were not allowed at the hospital during his stay. The owner graciously allowed us to get into our room much earlier than the check in time. The room (a kitchenette) was clean, comfortable, and well equipped with an amazing view of the lake. I would stay there again without hesitation!
We went to Iron River Hospital for Outpatient Surgery and chose this motel -Tripadvisor said it was pet-friendly. Cute place, very reasonable. We are elderly, and try to travel with our dog so we brought her along. We let the motel know that when we made our reservations by phone. Well, surgery went OK and we went back home (2 hours north of Iron River) and then a couple days later called to reserve for 2/16 because of another hospital procedure on 2/17. The manager was really angry. Not gonna give us a room because of the dog, who apparently shed all over the place. She's a short-haired Beauceron, so not unusual shedding. Also, because we reserved a room with 2 beds (husband will not sleep with wife snoring loudly in his ear), she was mad that we used BOTH beds. Yow.
This place advertised itself as pet friendly and we told them in advance we were bringing a dog. We rented a room with two double beds. When we checked out they complained about the dog shedding. They even complained because my wife and I used both beds! You rent a room with two beds and you're not supposed to use them both? Otherwise the room was small and the furnishings old-fashioned, but it was clean and well kept.
