My wife and I stayed at the Best Western in Clear Lake, Iowa. We attended the Winter Dance Party at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake. As is always the case, we had a great time. It was our 27 year coming to the Best Western. Needless to say, we will be back!

I stay hear often when I have overnight immanence to conduct at work. The staff are always courteous, professional, and are willing to help me with any and every need. When you are in a pinch, this is the place to go to!

Hotel is renovating, we barely noticed! Everything was clean, room was nice decorated, clean and most importantly for me quiet. Dinner in the attached restaurant was good and we appreciated not having to leave the premises in 20 degree weather

Friendly, dedicated staff, strive to make your stay as enjoyable as possible and great service. Easy access and Bennigan's restaurant is attached to the motel. Great place to get a good meal and don't have to brave the cold to dine elsewhere.

We ran into bad weather (ice!) on I-35 returning home Friday night and lucky for us we were close to this BW right when it really got treacherous. Easy check in, staff very upbeat and helpful. Nice room, very quiet, pet friendly! Bennigans attached, but also available for room service (plus a 10% discount if you are staying at BW).... More

Dairy-free blueberrry muffins were offered for breakfast-a rare treat! The rooms are very quiet. I have stayed here multiple times, and will continue using this as my go-to hotel when in the Clear Lake area.

We got a same day deal on Hotwire for this hotel on Christmas Day. We have a child who is just a little too large for a pack and play, so they provided us a roll away bed free of charge, which was VERY much appreciated. It was brought up immeadiately from when we checked in. The pool space is... More

We were attending the New Year's Eve Celebration at the Surf and stayed at the Best Western as it had a restaurant attached and the price was reasonable. Had all the amenities we look for in a hotel - clean quiet rooms, check - coffee maker, check - refrigerator, check - free breakfast in the morning, check - free internet,... More

Had to stop here overnight due to weather. Staff was friendly. Bennigans is attached and a decent place for a dinner or lunch. Our room was a little run down. Don't get me wrong, everything worked fine. The bed wasn't the best nights rest I've had. Think $99 bed at your local mattress dealer. Since it was me & the... More

Dear Guest, Being so close to the interstate we get a lot of stranded motorist when the weather turns and roads are not safe to drive on.

Comfortable, clean, and quite hotel with a superior staff. The gals at the front desk could not do enough to help us - from giving my sister band-aids for the blisters on her palms from driving to recommending a restaurant for dinner. The professionalism, courtesy, friendliness and service in this hotel is superb! The location is convenient to the highway... More
