“Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013 via mobile

We were here for a veterans meeting and chose Lake Trail because of its proximity to the VFW. The rooms are somewhat dated with older television sets and curtains that have seen better days. On the plus side the staff is very friendly and efficient, and the view of Lake Huron from our large balcony is amazing. Great value for the money.

Stayed October 2013

The title really says it all, it's old, a motel not a hotel, and you get what you pay for. But, their location on the water is great. Really perfect for any traveler that wants to step out their room and onto the beach. The beach front is well kept and convenient. Their service was very good for our stay. The room was being cleaned when we arrived and we sat outside at a picnic area close by waiting. They did a nice thorough job. We had no complaints and really it is just a little motel in a nice spot. Nothing fancy. They did have a complimentary breakfast that was pretty good as well. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking to stay in the area inexpensively and wanting lakefront access.

Was told up graded room had a jacuzzi in room, picture show one in corner of bedroom area;
wrong\, all you get is a tub with jets; the room with the "the jacuzzi" cost even more. We thought by paying a little extra we would get better accomendations, wrong, again. This place is sadly in need of daily mainten and some TLC. Basically it is a dump with a view, if you can see beyond the asphalt trucks in the parking lot (people working on US 23 must be staying there and parking
big cement and asphalt truck obstructing the view of the lake. The rooms are below par and need re-doing badly. The lobby area could use some plain old cleaning and dusting and the grounds could use a good sweeping. The beach needs grooming, also. No chairs provided to sit on while using the beach, either. It appears to me that the owners are doing minimal up keep and just might be getting what they can get out of it rent wise and just letting it go to pot.
All in all, not a good experience; glad it wasn't horribly expensive.

Room Tip: Some rooms do not have air or even a fan, check before booking.

My wife and I stayed one night!! the room smelled very bad! the beds were as hard as a rock and the pillows were not any better. The matress had the smell of cigerettes reaking from it, almost made us sick. We would have left if there had been anouther place to stay. The door lock also was terrible, anyone could have pushed a little on the door and it would have came open. Turned the water on in the sink and it was brown at first, shower was the same way. i think the lights in bathroom were 5 watt bulbs, very dark! Probably so we couldnt see the filth? The shelf that the fridge and microwave were setting on was ready to collapse. TV reception was snowy. The exhaust fan in bathroom looked like it had a squirel stuffed in it, it was so dirty, plus a fire hazard. Boys from our team stayed in some other rooms and said there rooms smelled like mouse crap. we will not ever stay here again!!

I stayed at Lake Trail for the July 4th holiday. We stayed 3 nights and the room and beach were great. This isn't a 4 star hotel in NYC but its a very nice place for Northern Michigan. We were traveling by Motorcycle and the location was great for days trips and hanging at the beach. If you are travdeling by bike we bought some beach chairs and couldn't take them so we donated them to future bikers. Thanks Belle.
