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.

The ;pool is small but clean, LOTS of chlorine, will bleach your suits so be ware. There is a bar in the middle of the lobby, we did not use the restaurant, but the Main... More

Beautiful hotel. Friendly front dest staff and housekeeping staff. Hotel has a full restaurant on the lobby. Food service was really slow. The waitress just came back from a 3 week illness. She can not handle all the customers. She was the ONLY ONE working the WHOLE restaurant. This Best Western should have a Cold Breakfast bar for $9.95..which should... More

Let me first state that I really only chose this hotel because of ill family member who lives in this area. It appeared to be the only "clean" hotel in Clearlake. Pros: 1. For the area that surrounds this hotel I would consider it nice. 2. Modern amenities for what I expected to be obsolete. 3. Fairly attractive interior hotel... More

Had to make a trip to this area for personal/business. Needed to check out some property but couldn't stay at that location. Needed somewhere close and comfortable for grandchildren. They were pleasantly surprised and delighted by the hot indoor pool and room service. They wanted to stay another 3 days. Made the trip fun. Will stay here if the opportunity... More

The room next to us was a smoking room, although ours was not. The guest were smoking pot in the next room, the smell was so strong we had to open our door and the windows to attempt to air out the smell. Our grandson was with us, we kept him out of the room until we checked out. We... More
