While road tripping through the UP we were in need of a last minute hotel and we happened to call Lakeside Motor Inn just at the right moment. With one room left, they took our reservation and were super friendly. The rooms were were clean, the AC was cool, the WiFi worked great. The breakfast options weren't much but if...

We called on a very busy Friday night after our reservations at another motel were given away. The firecracker at the front desk was juggling call-ins, walk-ins, and reservations with wit, humor, and genuine friendliness. The hotel itself is clean and comfortable, but no Hilton. But, it also doesn't carry a Hilton price tag. The building is in pretty good...

We had a room facing away from the road/train so the noise wasn't an issue for us. ice shower with good pressure and hot water. Simple breakfast of coffee, juice, milk and...

Wow just great for a quick stay at a great price before going to Delta County air port for a real early flight. When UP travel between airports and home is long and it is real dark we use this hotel to catch an early morning flight so we don't have to get up and drive over an hour.

This motel has older furnishings and carpeting but is very pleasant and clean, reasonably priced. The lobby and the room had a nice fresh smell. We had a first floor, single queen bed room for 2. Although we did not request it, the room was handicapped accessible with wide doors, low sink, grab bars and fold down bench on tub....

I was really impressed with the quality of the rooms for the price. We had a king-sized bed which came with a couch, a dining table, a full kitchenette with fridge, and of course a bathroom w/ shower. Everything was very clean, and they also provided free soaps and shampoos which many comparable hotels/motels do not. In the morning there...
