Very nice hotel that is nice and quiet and there is a really nice park with a fishing lake just across the street. Great location in Buena Vista just a short walk from many of the restaurants. I forgot some thing there and they shipped them back to me. They are very helpful with any questions that you may have.

At check-in I was asked about smoking but I sympathize; smokers may not be sensitive to how bad that odor is and how it clings to clothing. It was easy to see how much care is lavished on the place, which I greatly appreciated. I passed a quiet and restful night and hit the road the next morning ready for... More

NO SMOKING NO SMOKING I don't smoke, and I don't like smoky rooms or the smell of cigarette or pot smoke around me in general. That said, for every encounter I had with the owner (twice on the phone, once when I checked in) the first words out of his mouth were "We don't allow smoking, do you smoke?" -... More

We are very impressed with this locally owned motel. Clean, well kept and a good value too. Room was specious and comfortable. This is definitely on our list of places to stay again. The owner was very helpful in recommending eating establishments. Wish there were more motels like the Lakeside.

This place was recommended to us by locals when we were coming to Buena Vista to finalize the transaction to get our new house built. We were NOT disappointed. The rooms are spotless, the ownership friendly, the prices made it a good value. Now we are locals, and recommend this place to others, when we don't have the room to... More

We stayed at this place after looking for a place on a spontaneous thought and wanting to avoid chains. It is a very clean and maintained property. The rooms are spacious and the bed in our room was very comfortable. We like that the owner is very adamant about no smoking. There is not air conditioning, but the evenings are... More

My wife and I stayed here last summer and I just made reservations for this week, so obviously thought it was alright. As long as you're not a smoker and don't have pets, this is fine place to stay. And probably for those same reasons it is a nice place to stay! No air conditioning, but the climate there is... More

This motel will not book a room to anyone who smokes and they have a strict no pet policy. Because of this it is a very clean and quiet motel. It is run by a couple who have been in the area for a number of years and their personal touches on the decorating in the rooms are evident. The... More

Stayed 3 nights over the July 4th holiday. Great location, very clean property, simple but meets all needs. Very close to town, could walk to most eateries and parks in the area. Owners gave good advice on restaurants and things to do around town.

We found this motel to be very conveniently located to a park and restaurant. It is extremely clean, can actually smell a scant smell of bleach when entering the room. The room is done in a cabin style decor with quilt coverings on the beds and even a crocheted toilet paper cover on the extra role of paper in the... More
