During check-in, Shelly took extra steps to make sure we were situated in the requested downstairs room - even to redirect the housekeeper to prepare our room early - so that we could arrive at the baby shower with fresh clothes and on time. When the lighting failed in the bathroom, Shyam spent a few minutes trying to fix it,... More

This is our favorite hotel on scenic Hwy 395. Miles away from any city(and very quiet), it is a great stop when heading to Yosemite, Death Valley, Grover Hot Springs or any Eastern Sierra location. The rooms are the largest we have found on Hwy 395. The bed was comfy, with extra pillows and high thread count sheets. Decor complimented... More

The Best Western Topaz Lake Inn is located at a great location and was very comfortable. The location overlooking the lake is nice and it was also very quiet and relaxing. The room was very clean and we appreciated its spacious layout.

Location next to highway but low noise level. All room equipment and furnishings in good order.

This is an older hotel for sure but it was very clean, staff was exceptionally helpful and accommodating ( we did not have reservations like we usually do, but because it was hailing we just dropped in). Room was huge with a big window overlooking Topaz Lake. We even got a discount for food and gifts at the Casino next... More

Room on 3rd floor was nice quiet except the morning doves, which we liked and the quails running around the property. Morning free breakfast was late, it appeared the on-duty person was a bit overwhelmed. The sitting area had just two tables and there were, including we 2 about >20 guests. Coffee was late out but finally by 0715 everything... More
