“BEST "Home Away From Home"”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

Our family loves Lakeshore. We meet here to visit family members from different parts of the country. The rooms are very clean. There are a variety of choices to meet different needs. The lake is beautiful and different equipment is available.
The office area and the patio offer a great place to visit with friends and family and to meet new friends.
The owners are the best! They make you feel like family, are so helpful, and so welcoming.
The price of rooms does not reflect the wonderful experience as the prices are low and experience high!
Thank you!

We stayed at the Lakeshore Motel while traveling around the U.P. Our room was clean and we had everything we needed. The owners were very friendly and gave us suggestions on what to do in the area. The breakfast also was pretty good. The hotel was quiet, and guests have access to Ice Lake. It was a great stay and we would definitely come back!!

I was traveling across the U.P. last week and needed a place to stay in a pinch so I got on my smartphone and pulled up trip advisor and found this little gem. It is a classic old-style motel I am guessing from the 1940's or 50's. Most of these places I see are pretty run-down but this place was in great shape and very clean. The room was done in a rustic cabin style and was spotless. The fixtures in the bathroom were dated but again in great condition and clean. They had great complementary soaps that rival any of the upscale places I have stayed and the bonus was that the back window looks out on a beautiful lake. But there was even more, they had an excellent continental breakfast with muffins, cereal, fruit, juice and coffee in the little dining room at the office and the real kicker was that I got all of this for $45.00 and change. Unbelievable! Thanks folks! I will keep you in mind if I am ever traveling this way again.

Room Tip: Call early, rooms are limited and there are not a lot of choices out in the wilderness of the U.P.

Have been here a week now (extended our stay twice, so far). This will be added to my list of places I absolutely will return to. Drove, from CA, to the Upper Peninsula, MI, and found this little slice of heaven!! The owners are so gracious, warm and friendly...in fact EVERYONE on the UP are very friendly!! The rooms are clean, quaint, comfortable, cozy and quiet. The cottages are a step back in time. Very family friendly. Have our own private little lake out front (Ice Lake), with swimming, kayaking, conoeing, row boating and fishing, right out our front door!! I simply DO NOT want to leave!! Do yourself a favor...make it a destination! At least stop here for a couple of days!!!

We had a very nice room, with a good view of the lake. Service was great, had a problem with TV, Steele came up right away and changed out the TV. Breakfast was good, Claudia was right there to offer fresh coffee, and help in any way needed. Everything was fresh. Motel was full, but it was very quiet, some that were there had been there many times before and were making reservations for future visits. We will be back for another stay in the future.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on lake front.

We were looking for a place to stay for three nights as we were going to visit a friend of mine who lives close by. She gave me numbers of three different motels in the area and so we booked Lakeshore Motel. I am so glad we did. The room we had, had two queen beds in it, table with two chairs, flat screen tv with cable, microwave, refrigerator, lazy boy chair and another chair and wifi. The room was spotless. Looking out the window you could see the lake and it was gorgeous. Nice size bathroom and was very clean. They offered continental breakfast and had a very good selection of items. We visited with Claudia and she was very friendly and a great hostess. The tv in our room was acting up and her husband came right up to check it out and changed out the tv. Next time we come up to that area we will definitely stay there again.

We were looking for someplace to stay for one night in the Iron River area. I turned to TripAdvisor to help me to choose. There were so many good revues about the Lakeshore Motel and it held up to those reviews. The room was charming, with a rustic decor, and it was spotless. The room had a refrigerator, microwave, plenty of good lighting, an extra mirror in the sleeping area, a nice chair and stool, and a flat screen TV. We had a pleasant lake view, there were magazines to borrow, and a continental breakfast. The bathroom was roomy, and was stocked with nice, white towels and good quality toiletries. We used the dock to fish, and caught (and released!) a lot of bluegills and other small fish. The room was so comfortable, and the setting so pleasant, we were sorry we weren't able to stay longer. Another bonus, was the location. It was just a couple of blocks off Highway 2. Convenient for traveling, but far enough away to make us feel like we were not anywhere near the highway!
