I honestly believe the manager to be a well-intentioned fellow who simply has no clue as to the importance of warmth and cheerful accommodation in the Hospitality Industry, or how badly it is lacking at his establishment. The feeling is that you should be grateful to be staying there, which is understandable given that the place is routinely booked solid....

Went with 3 other girlfriends and we had a lovely stay. Resort has a Serene setting with lots of grass and seating areas scattered about. We had to pack everything we wanted to do into 1 1/2 days and we had a lot of fun. Breakfast: hard boiled eggs, yummy turnovers, bagels & BIG muffins. OJ and coffee (on the...

My husband and I just returned from Maui and we can honestly say Lakeshore Resort sunsets can"t be beat! Quiet, relaxing and beautiful setting. Owners and staff are very helpful and friendly. We've look forward to returning every summer for the last 15 years and enjoy the friendly guests we have meant from all over the country.

My husband and I stayed here on a Monday and Tuesday in mid-September. The location of the place is outstanding; right across the road from Lake Michigan in a quiet residential neighborhood. The grounds are very well kept and the owners and employees are very friendly. The rooms are very clean, but they are quite dated. We were also disappointed...

I read all the reviews and knew ahead of time that this was an original mid-century motel that had its rooms updated at some point. Honestly, you come for the lovely location right on the lake. We were here in late September and of course it was cool..we loved sitting in chairs on the beach watching the sunset. After driving...

This small motel is away from the touristy scene. The rooms could use some updating and it would be nice to have wifi in the rooms and not just the common areas. Other than that, I have no complaints. Nice access to beach with tables and umbrellas. Weather was not great when we were there so we did not use...

This was the second time we've stayed at the Lake Shore. It is a converted older motel, with rooms that are adequate, but nothing special. What is special are the grounds, landscaping, view of Lake Michigan, and the fire pits. Guests love to gather around the fire pits and chat while enjoying sunset with a beverage.

I have never been to any of the great lakes so was really looking forward to the trip. The hotel has not been updated for a while, but I loved it as it has a wonderful, comfy feel and the rooms are very cozy. Outdoor pool that was heated. Had a great continental breakfast and located perfectly with a private...

A quiet, comfortable, family-owned and operated, beautifully maintained and landscaped place with a panoramic view of Lake Michigan from atop a bluff. It is in a residential area but there is plenty to do a short drive away (shopping, restaurants, galleries, winery, blueberry picking, etc.) This is also a great place to do nothing at all - curl up with...

My wife and I spent two wonderful weeks at Lake Shore Resort, and once again it has impressed us as a near-perfect gem of a summer resort. The grounds are manicured to a high degree, rooms are comfortable and well appointed, great breakfasts, and always the Lake view and beach. The property is situated along a residential road of beautiful...
