Most folks were nice, just needs some improvements with beds and offer free breakfast instead of having to pay for it with the restaurant within it. Room was large but beds were not comfortable and has the smell of mildew when it was smoking in hotel.

Stayed here on business and overall was satisfied with the room. It was clean, TV was okay and internet hookup was easy. I would recommend a larger and better breakfast for the guests. Very close to Running Creek Casino.

Stayed a total of (3) days two weeks apart and had the same experience; there will not be a third. Regardless of any other short comings this hotel may have; the lack of competent desk staff will put anyone off at this place. If you want a correct reservation it will have to be done at check in as it... More

We were quite satisfied with our stay although we were there only for one night. The room was clean and it was spacious. It has a very good looking indoor courtyard. For the price paid, it was a good choice.

We stayed at the Best Western El Grande in Lower Lake on November 19, 2014. When I made the reservations the clerk was friendly and helpful. When we checked in the young lady at the front desk was extremely friendly and even came to our room to fix the TV. Since my husband swims every day (per his doctor's orders)... More

We wanted to watch the football playoffs on TV the night we stayed. Both of our TV''s had the game televised in Spanish. The staff couldn't figure out how to fix the problem either and we found out all of the TV's were this way. I finally went to the Lounge and asked them and I was told that their... More

I just bragged to friends after we checked in about how clean this hotel was even though it was an older hotel. Problem was, if you don't leave your room in the morning you don't get housekeeping service. Buisness was slow for this time of year and apparently the housekeepers don't stay long into the day. Once we asked the... More

The hotel staff was preoccupied and did not seem to be very preofessional. We found the hotel to be clean and comfortable, but the Air Conditionaire made a lound bang every time it finished cooling: most objectionable!

Beautiful new building, great room (king size bed with lake view) on the last fourth floor. Unfortunately we had mostly view of the roof of neighboring shop. The way to the lake is ugly. Near the hotel there were metal contractions on the road that made continuous noise after each car. All this problems cannot be fixed by hotel -... More

Best hotel in Clearlake, CA. We were here for our uncle's 95th birthday and this hotel met our needs. It was clean with friendly staff. It does not have a complimentary breakfast but does have a restaurant that has a good breakfast.
