Seems to be in a small town off the beaten path, hope they make a go of it. Nice looking pool, didn't get to use. Great Television set up, user... More

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

This was a great place! The manager Julie made us feel at home. If we asked about anything " Julie took care of it" every staff member just went above and beyond. Keep the good work up. We have friends come in hunting every year and they stay in Watertown not this year. The whole group will be staying with... 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.

This is a nice hotel considering its location. Clear Lake is a tiny town in eastern SD and this is the only hotel offering for 25 miles around. Rooms were basic but clean. No microwaves or refridgerators, beds were older but still fairly comfy. The website advertises a pool, but upon arrival it was empty, kids were a bit bummed... More
