“Did the trick”
Reviewed August 15, 2014 via mobile

There does not seem to be any middle ground for accommodations in Haliburton; either high-end resorts or low-end motels.
Considering bang for the buck, this place was pretty good.
Stayed here for one night and it had all they amenities that you need. The staff/owners are very friendly and accommodating. The place could use some updating, but it was clean and comfortable.
The only negative thing was that the walls were a little thin; one of our neighbours must have fell asleep with the tv on, and I could faintly hear it all night (light sleeper).
I would stay here again when in the area.

A little pricey and the bed was very hard but the room itself had everything you would want including a balcony, fridge, microwave and flat screen tv. The pool was fantastic. Don't ask for anything special at breakfast though. Weren't even sure how to make an egg white sandwich

Just spend a night here in room 2. The price was $180.00. That was too,too much for a sixty year old road side motel.That is more than I have paid at the Best Western with breakfast included. The room was clean and it was close to our destination and it had good review on tripadvisor. We didn't use the pool or eat there. It is located right on the side of the road.You can hear the traffic from the room but there isn't a lot at night during the week, may be more of an issue during weekends. The room also had a strong smell of ??cleaning produces. There was no hair dryer, which most rooms have now days and so I didn't bring mine, my mistake.There is no lake view, only trees across the road.they should change the name to Tree Top Motel. I think a price of $100 would be more than a fair price for these motel rooms. For $180.00 I expect more.!!!! For the first time I felt a place didn't live up to the reviews and I will not recommend it to friends.

Room Tip: The location was ideal for us, otherwise we would not stay here

We stayed over the August long weekend in an upper unit that provided access to the front balcony as shown on their website. We are guessing the "Lake view" is in the fall or winter months when there are no leaves on the trees. We believe the price of the room is warranted given the time of year. Our room was clean and comfortable. The property is well kept and they have done a nice job on the landscaping around the obviously well maintained pool. While we didn't have the opportunity to attend their restaurant, we liked the fact they provide a number of BBQ's strategically placed near the rooms and are available to use at no extra cost. Keep up with the ongoing improvements John & Holly!

Room Tip: upper level was good to us.

Barbeques and horseshoe pits are a nice touch.
We felt that the state of the rooms did not warrant a $200 price tag and that the attitude of the proprietor could have been a little friendlier.
Breakfast was well served and very good.

Holly & John have created a great retreat for weary travelers. The motel was clean and comfortable, the pool was very refreshing and the food was great. We totally recommend the Lakeview Motel and will go there again when we come back to the area. We picked this spot due to reviews on Trip Advisor and they were all totally true. A little dated in decor but well loved and looked after - that was evident.

Room Tip: We were on our motorcycle and stayed in the back part of the motel where are bike was hidden from vi...

My husband is in Haliburton on business, this was the perfect spot. I read the other reviews and this was the winner for price and quality. I will return again with him on his next business trip to Haliburton.
