I expected a motel and got a nice one that was quiet, friendly and reminded me of a Southern Hemisphere hacienda style inn. Bed was decent, nice large fridge, lots of parking. Ice machine and sodas for $1 on each floor. Billiards in the lounge, full service restaurant on site.

The hairdryer was broken, the clock radio was broken, took over an hour and 2 calls to get them replaced, and I have NEVER stayed in any hotel or motel where you had to actually request (the night before) to have your room cleaned, our bed was not even made and we had to go to the desk for clean...

Nice & clean place. Close by is a great pizza place. This place is far better and cleaner than some other Hotels in Clearlake. Extremely quiet too. In addition, there is a general store across the street for food you might need

Tv was not high Definition, but worked fine. they had all the channels to choose from. Hallways (we were on the third floor) were very dark. Some of the overhead lights were out. The hotel looks dated... More

My family and I drove out of our way to stay at this hotel because my kids wanted an indoor pool. After check-in the kids put on their swimsuits and went down to pool only to find they couldn't swim due to concrete work. After further inspection of hotel room it was completely filthy. Blood on curtain, shower curtain dirty,... More

Was not impressed with the town of Clearlake at all. The Best Western was the 'best' choice in town but it was far from great. Pool was out of order, the internet was down (not their fault) and the TV was on the wrong setting (I figured it out on my own). But since everything was sold out in Calistoga... More

The hotel clearly needs to be updated. The first room, when I opened the door, was occupied by someone else, the bed was not made. The second room I was given, needed to be updated. Mattress was sagging on both full size beds. The room was however clean, with the exception of smoking odors for a non smoking room

We rolled into Clear Lake after a long day of riding. Recognizing the Best Western brand, we registered at a nearly empty hotel. Our room was ordinary BW. The restaurant/lounge which is co-located in the hotel is sufficiently bad to discourage us from re-visiting this property. The restaurant has a mediocre dinner menu, and none of our (four) orders was... More
