The room was super clean and very spacious. The staff is very friendly. The pool is nice, too! The kitchenette area was very roomy. I loved the brightness of the room and that you could make it very dark at night. Very quite, too. I highly recommend if you are visiting the area.

Used groupon for clear lake cottages and marina. I was lucky to get the best cottage in the property (No. 27: Queen Studio Cottage). Room was great, clean, trendy decor, comfortable bed with a private deck built over the water. Kitchen was fully equipped. Management was very helpful. They also provided us 2 hours free kayak rental. However, the town... More

Best of the ghetto that is Clearlake, while that may seem harsh, this town is a dog, old dirty and rundown. Boarded up windows on main street and gang members in the water front park. And most of the hotels in Clearlake fit right in. The Clear Lake Cottages & Marina is at least newer, and clean looking (the floor... More

Pleasant cottage on the lake. Clean. Straightforward . If in the area, would come back again. Stayed here on the way to Napa Valley where the lodging rates are a tad higher. There are several decent restaurant s nearby.

We stayed here for a long weekend when my husband had a fishing club tournament. We had a room that opened out onto a lawn area and the lake. It was a spacious room with comfortable beds. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We plan to stay there again in July for another club tourney.

My daughter surprised me with a Mother's Day trip to a place I'd never been, Clearlake. She had researched to find a place that was pet friendly and she exceeded any expectation I had! This resort is clean, attractive and well appointed. The office staff were welcoming and personable. The room was attractive, clean, well appointed and very comfortable. The... More

On the plus side, the cottage we stayed in was spacious with a nice, large "kitchen" area. I'm using quote marks because...there was no sink! If you needed water for coffee or to rinse a dish or get a glass of water you had to use the bathroom sink. Ewwww! Other odd things were...no kleenex in the room, 1/4 roll... More

Thank you for you review. It is very important to me and my staff that each guest has an enjoyable stay and are provided with excellent service. I looked into your stay and see that you stayed in our non kitchen, handicapped accessible unit for a few nights. This cottage is set up "hotel style" where a coffee bar area... More

Pretty view over the lake. Nicki was super, super friendly and super dog friendly. We stayed in cottage 20 which is large, has a great view of the lake, and an enclosed deck which is great for a dog or a kid. As others have noted, the town of Clearlake has seen better days.

The whole establishment was clean and welcoming. Room was nice and large with the little kitchenette area if we needed to heat up food. We enjoyed how close it was to walk to restaurants yet quiet with beautiful views of the water. Very relaxing!
