Far From Lake to be called Lakeside!
Posted Aug 19, 2016
We were traveling from Mackinac, along Lake Superior, to Marquette, Michigan. We booked reservations at this motel, called Econo Lodge Lakeside, which certainly would lead one to believe that the place was by the lake. This older motel has no elevator, which meant dragging baggage up the steps. The motel is not on Lake Superior - it is certainly not lakeside. Yes, you can see the lake in the distance across a long parking lot, a 4-lane busy highway, and a wide bike trail. It was not what we expected and would not stay there again. Gabby at the front desk was super, very helpful. The cleaning staff was also friendly and helpful. The place needs some updating and a name change!

Thank you for your reply.
We are directly across from Lake Superior with a nice scenic view. There are no impeding buildings from us to the lake. Yes there is a highway and bike trail. We do not have lake access nor do we advertise.
We recently completed renovations including granite counters, new carpeting in rooms and new bedding.
There are 12 steps to get up to the second floor and we are happy to help with luggage or move anyone to a first floor room if the stairs are an issue.
Thank you for your kind words about Gabby and the rest of our staff. We do appreciate to hear the friendliness of our staff as we take great pride in our business and great service.
We appreciate your business and look forward to seeing you again.
