I am from Clear Lake so I knew the hotel was about 50 years old so décor was a bit dated. The staff was very helpful. The rooms were comfortable and the wi-fi signal was great. The breakfast was also very good. The fact that Bennigan's was part of the hotel complex was also real plus. We will stay there... More

I was back in my hometown to attend the funeral of a good childhood and young adult (lifetime) friend. I found the hotel staff to be very friendly and helped in everyway, other than not making more sausage gravy when needed and requested.

The Best Western Holiday Lodge, is not the best of the best westerns. Yes it has a good price, friendly services and people, Good restaurant next door/connected(see this in another review) But the rooms need some improvement. If it was just me the hotel would be fine. I do need much a bed, TV and bath. They were small rooms,... More

Our son's wedding reception was held here in July 2015. Everything went smooth from the planning to the actual event. The staff was very accommodating, the reception buffet was delicious. Our hotel room was very nice and breakfast was tasty.

In town for a conference stayed only one night, which was one too many. I thought I had time-traveled back to the 80's. Not sure the carpets have been cleaned since then! Strange building configuration put me in an out building accessible by a smelly damp underground tunnel. The fitness center was a joke tucked away in a musty storage... More

The name, the sign, the view from the road all indicate a pleasant night ahead. The stairwell is filthy, the breakfast is poor, the building interior overall has been maintained poorly. The adjacent restaurant is an unkind example of a public house.

Dear William, I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at our hotel. We are in the process of working on the stairwells with a new coat of paint we currently have Sherwin Williams working some samples to get the process started. We offer a wide variety of breakfast items if there is something that you would like... More

We (wife and I) had reservations for a four night stay while attending a small convention based in the motel. Check-in was quick requiring only a credit card hold. The room was nice with a queen bed, desk, lounge chair, and a 40 inch flat panel TV. The bathroom was clean and of moderate size. We were on the fourth... More

Occasionally when my husband and I are traveling through that part of the state we will pause in our drive to stay in Clear Lake. This hotel has so many rooms we have never been turned away. Granted some of the rooms might be a bit dated, they are all extremely clean and well appointed. The restaurant adjoining the hotel... More
