    We really enjoyed our stay at Lakeshore Clearwater Motel. From check in to check out, everyone was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and we loved sitting by the fire and eating s'mores!

    The hotel was very clean. The location was great. The staff was incredibly attentive. Bonfire on the lake every night -- multiple pits. Smores kits, complimentary. Staff came by to make sure we were all set frequently while we were out on the premises.

    I've seen a few trying but I've never seen anyone catching anything. I've been told the fishing is good on the Cheboygan River near the dam. That's about 20 minutes south of us. Kim Phillips Owner Clearwater Lakeshore Motel
