Back in May we booked a room through the Americas Best Value Inn & Suites website. We received an email confirmation for a 7-day stay in July but when we arrived, the manager could not find a record of the reservation. She did have a room for us for the beginning of our stay, but not for the entire 7... More

I have stayed at this hotel for many years as I have elderly family in town that I visit often. Customer service was lacking and our reservation requests were not honored. My family requested rooms next to each other and we were told that was not possible when we checked in. The hotel manager (short blonde lady) was so unfriendly... More

My Grandfather reserved a room downstairs well over a month in advanced. We get there and a short blonde lady (I assume is the owner)comes to the desk she is... More

Great stay!, clean rooms, quiet, very friendly staff and priced right! Stopped for the night on my way to a meeting in Minn. Booked through Priceline and everthing was correct.

Excellent stay! Great room (frig and microwave), very clean (room and hotel) - Very friendly staff! Great continental breakfast!! The purpose of our stay was to attend a wedding of friends so we did not spend any time in the town itself so I do not know what Clear Lake has to offer.

We were on the way back to Minnesota after 12 days in the Black Hills, very tired and wanted to stop for the night. Everything was booked in Watertown, so moved on to Clear Lake. Staff was friendly and efficient. Rooms could use a decorating update but are clean & quiet. They offer a military discount which brought the price... More

We celebrated my son's birthday by renting the poolside room. The room was big enough to accomadate party guests and the kids enjoyed the use of the pool. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We would definitely consider this hotel for another party.
