We were in town for five days for my son's wedding. The bride's family booked us into one of the cabins. The stay was nice. The staff were very friendly and the place was clean and comfortable. You will have to make your own "Do Not Disturb" sign, or housekeeping will wake you by 11am (we were late sleepers because...

Looked for an overnight stop for a motorcycle ride. Place was the only one I could find that had availability at the time. They made a mistake on our reservation, but gave us a cottage instead which worked out well. Place is adequate. Nice pool and fire pit area.

Our family stayed at LakeSide Motor Lodge for a weekend and it couldn't have been better! We had great remodeled cabins, very close to the pool! The Motel is a central location of the town and about a block away from the lake. The young lady at the front desk was very helpful throughout the whole reservation and check in...

The location is great. within walking distance to the beach, food and bars. But that is what you are paying for. We rented a 2 bedroom cottage that was really outdated. They tried to update with a futon, but the rooms really need to be renovated. Old freezer fridge, and was terrified to use the stove to cook as the...

We spend every Labor Day weekend at the Lakeside Motor Lodge. They are super friendly and very accommodating. It is in walking distance and central to everything; restaurants, grocery stores and the shops. And just a short walk to the beach. The pool layout is fantastic with plenty of lounge chairs and even canopies if you want a break from...

My family and I just returned from a weekend at the Lakeside Motor Lodge and we will definitely be going back. Our room was on the second level and had two queen beds. The room was clean and had a great view of the pool area. Our days were spent at the pool in the middle of the property and...

Who does not supply internet these days or a microwave? Who does not have light bulbs in 4 of seven light sockets or parking close to your room? I don't think the room was cleaned very well,open soap and a wet wash cloth in bathroom????????? The only reason it gets a 2 is that it is not the worst place...

Hello, Kevin. We are sorry that you had an unpleasant stay. Unfortunately, we could not find any record of your reservation so we could get to the bottom of this. We welcome a call from you in an effort to make things right. Thank you.

We have stayed in several places in Port Austin. This is among the better options. If it wasn't raining I am sure we would have appreciated using the 2d door to a lovely relaxing courtyard. The room is ordinary but clean & comfy, with a couch, small frig & flat screen. The hotel is within walking distance of all. Will...

Management was very accommodating. Our room was due to be renovated this winter so it left a bit to be desired, but we weren't there to stay in the room much anyway...at least it was a clean dry spot to hang our head at night. Nice and close to the water, stores and restaurants...no need to drive anywhere but the...
