Nice family-run motel on the lake. It's not super fancy, but it's clean and comfortable; the rooms are spacious; the management is friendly, and it doesn't break the bank. We found it to be a nice option as we were traveling through to ski. Continental breakfast was available.

I stay here several times each year when traveling for pleasure. It seems like every stay is in a different styled room or cabin. Always clean and comfortable. Always treated courteously. Continental breakfast is in a warm and cozy setting... I almost always meet someone interesting over breakfast. Innkeepers have become friends.

After an all day motorcycle ride I was running low on daylight and looking for a place to call it a night. Made a wrong turn and accidentally rode out of town and found this place just looking for a place to turn around. What a lucky break. The room was more than adequate, comfortable and clean, and the price...

Mom and I were very pleased after we got into the Large Kitchenette. The step into the room is rather high and was a little challenging for Mom. The kitchen is well equipped and good size for cooking. There is a double bed just inside the door and one in the bedroom in the back. There are two twin beds...

An older but well-maintained property. Great welcome despite my late arrival. On the "outskirts" of the town and I should have printed out directions. Breakfast was amazingly varied for a smaller place. The lobby/common room had local charm, and the other guests were friendly. The UP can be intimidating at night - it is really dark up there - but...

The hotel is not fancy, but very neat, clean, and clearly managed by people who care. We had a kitchenette with a large window about 30 feet from the lake. The room was cramped and the bathroom small. The former really should have contained only one instead of two large beds. The toilet was small, close to the wall, and...

The trailer was dark old and cramped . I felt completely misled by the reviews that were basically glowing. Lights were dim and the trailer was so cramped that it was a danger getting around. I imediately left and went to stay with area friends. When they came by they insisted we leave and stay with them. Extremely disappointed. Creepy.

Hello and sorry for your experience. We have many guests who will only stay in the mobile home and plan their visit around the availability. We cannot understand why you didn't address your concern with us. The lights and heat were left on, food left in refrigerator and no key present. You didn't stop by the office and we assumed...

The Lakeshore Motel has everything you could want in a place to stay in the north woods. Located on beautiful Ice Lake, the scenery is beyond comparisons to any other! They have many different places to sit and relax and just take in the view. The rooms are well kept, basic but very comfortable and clean. The owners and staff...

Loved this place!! We will be staying again next time we come up. Very friendly and clean. The rooms appeared to all be different, the water was clean and full of fish. Staff friendly and helpful. Had wifi and breakfast every morning. If your looking for a place with a home feel and an up north atmosphere this is it....

If you want to have the very best place to stay in the UP of Michigan then you must stay at the Ice Lake Motel in Iron River. There is nothing to match it anywhere - whether its cost for what you get, hospitality of the owners (Claudia & Steele), cleanliness of the units, services offered including boats, paddle boats...
