I booked this hotel through a last minute deal on TripAdvisor. I choose the property because the price was good and the reviews were even better! It did not disappoint. The owners were extremely friendly and had even changed my reservation to a room further away from the front office for a quieter experience. I slept great in my clean... More

The rooms are clean and comfortable and the owners are great to deal with. All the rooms have fridge and microwaves in them. 40" flat panel tvs. Nice location between the lakes. Many new updates on the rooms. A great place to stay. Fair prices as well.

The room may have been a little smaller than the big price motels, but there was enough room for the Wife & myself. The room was very clean, good shower with good water pressure, microwave & refrigerator plus coffee maker. I think it was about a 36"flat screen tv with cable including HBO. My Wife & I both think that... More

The only thing that might be am issue is the parking lot during winter. Across the way it's a beautiful lake that usually has a... More

The Lakeshore Motor inn is a very nice place to stay. Do not be scared away by the simple exterior appearance. The rooms are smaller than one would expect at a Holiday Inn but then so is the price. The rooms were very clean, new carpeting, new tiles in the bathroom area. Room comes with fridge, microwave, large flatscreen tv,... More

We stayed here for two nights on a family vacation. The owners are great and are very helpful. The rooms are older, but well maintained and clean. It is situated between two lakes and provided for a nice view during morning coffee on the patio. Free wifi.
