              not where you want to be if you have options, but you'll survive for a night”
              The sole staff person able to check people in was out getting lunch when we arrived. When they came back, they mentioned we were lucky b/c they were overbooked and we got the last room. It's really closer to a "motel" than "hotel" -- one exterior door for each set of four rooms, two up, two down. The carpet felt like we should not walk on it barefoot. There was no soap, and when I went to the front desk to point this out, I was just given a fistful, with no apology or recognition that there should have been soap. While I was there, I also got more shampoo, since we were only given one tiny bottle for a room with multiple people staying. The slot for a tissue box was empty of tissues. The back of the toilet sprayed water all over the bathroom when we flushed it. This was slightly less of a problem than it sounds in that the floor wasn't level, so after spraying us the water pooled up away from where we were walking.

              We all 5 stayed here for IMTS for early morning move out in next morning. One room was very stinky found wet carpet and bathroom. Two rooms we found stained(brown could be blood) shirt on the bed. Thin wall we heard neighbor was shouting all night. While receptionist was very friendly even midnight check-in that was a big plus.

              Near the city and clean and Tidy. Room needs updating from the 70s. Even the tv had no usb port in 2018. No hotel bar as shown in the pictures. Staff working their looked depressed. If your going to charge $150 - $250 per night you need to address these issues. Not the best but far from the worst...

              Very dated and poor value”
              The website photos were of both the Lakeshore Hotel and the adjacent/sister property La Quinta which is much more modern. It's not clear from the Agoda listing that the Lakeshore is a low-rise motel around a carpark. Rooms are very dated with a dirty looking carpet, ancient chairs and a 1980s bathroom. When I arrived the room (ground floor with a window onto the carpark) was unloacked, freezing cold, damp and smelt of smoke despite being a non-smoking room. The positioning also worried me in terms of safety as a solo female traveller but i was told there were no other options by a very brusqe receptionist. The pool is nice but needs some TLC, the restaurant is again like something from the 1980s. It's also a $20 Uber from downtown so while not expensive it just isn't worth it.

              Booked on line, pictures showed the hotel next door, room was clean but who are you kidding as a couple sleeping in a full bed is very uncomfortable instead of a break from home was restless. Came in too late and too tire to go back and fight about it. Be hones on the size bed and dont put picture from another hotel this is fraud.

              Check in staff said there was $25 security deposit, needed a card, for a reservation that was prepaid with Agoda, then proceeded to put a hold over $500 on the card, not the $25 that was communicated, because she didn't realize it was prepaid, and never communicated that she was charging the room rate for 3 days plus the $25, she ran the card through first. That hold remained on from Friday till after check-out and the woman that did this was completely unhelpful. No manager on duty till the next day and though the transaction was voided it was over a weekend and didn't take effect till Monday. No apology for the inconvenience. No effort to make up for this mistake nor inconvenience. This is not a hotel class accommodation, its motel class, be aware.
