The hosts of this hotel are lovely and accommodating. We were dummies and forgot to bring towels for our cottage. The hosts had some for us and were really kind about it. The cottages are cozy, clean and comfortable. We stopped in to the office for free coffee and tea in the morning, and a good story. Nice people. Nice...

Just got back from a three day stay with a girlfriend. Resort was very clean and well maintained. We brought our own coffee pot and coffee as well as cups. We didn't find glassware or cups which were under the sink until the last day. Having the mini fridge and microwave was a plus for us as we brought breakfast...

We stayed here this weekend....overall it was nice. Very clean and the buildings and grounds are up to date and well maintained. The bathrooms just have toilet and shower, the vanity and sink are in the room itself (our room was a single queen). There's no coffee maker...you have to go to the front desk and they will pour you...

Definitely a clean motel and well maintained. The outside pool is heated and close to the rooms. Great location to the breakwater and beach. City park is near by and so are places to eat. All within walking distance. Somewhat pricey compared to other motels providing free breakfast. We still would stay here again for the location and quaint town....

We love Port Austin and would travel there for the day often since we only live about 90 minutes away. This time we decided to stay a few nights. Found this place online and it exceeded our expectations. Very clean, grounds are absolutely beautiful, and well manicured. Someone there has a green thumb! Gazebo's, brick pavers made it so inviting....

We really liked the Lake Vista Resort. It was very clean and the grounds were beautiful. The heated pool hit the spot. So relaxing. Only 2 1/2 hours from home made this an ideal long weekend trip. We definitely will return.
