Lakefront and service is nice, but not thrilled with room.

We wanted a quaint place to say for a night that was on the water so we chose Lakeside Inn. The rooms are not exactly as they appear on the website. Beds appeared to be modern, but couch and room was quite old. The bathroom had a tiny sink with no counter top, or shelf for that matter so we had to use the window sill as a counter. The room was extremely bright early in the morning due to the lack of adequate window coverings. It’s nice to see the sun in Michigan, but not at 5:30 in the morning. The room was lit up brightly - very early – and therefore everyone was up earlier than normal.
We must have stayed in the oldest part of the building. We were directed to walk up some outside stairs to get to our room and it didn’t seem real clean as we overlooked part of the roof, and entrance to the kitchen (I believe).
Also, the restaurant was not open during our stay, and we were not aware of that. It was actually opening a day after we left. They did have continental breakfast open.
With all of that said, the staff was very friendly, and the place overlooks the water. It just didn’t hit my family as a place we’d want to come back to just due to the room setup, and how outdated the room was.
