We had room 1 (kitchen, 2 beds and murphy bed). Location, size of room, comfort of beds and a/c GREAT. Beautiful view of lake. DOWNSIDE: 0/2 room cleaning ... NEVER had room refresh. We had to get our own new towels. Labor Day: pool covered Saturday -- when we asked, were told "key person" hadn's shown up? At check out... More

This is our tenth year to stay here, and we have about 4 families that travel to Banks Lake the first week of August. As it is the only motel on the lake, there are not many options for places to stay. We are on the lake all day boating, so the only time we are in the room is... More

Both girls who helped us (one at check-in, the other at check-out) were so helpful and efficient. The cost was very affordable (off-season) and we were right on the lake! The view was breath-taking. Rooms were clean and comfortable not a lot of amenities but it appears to be a fishing destination so if you want the "ritz" then don't... More

We've been staying here for 10 years. Since the new owner took over, the Sky Deck has gone downhill. The hot tub hasn't worked in yrs, Ice machine never has Ice, the septic smell is a constant, enough to make you gag, there's mold on the outside of the windows along with cob webs and the place hasn't been painted...

This was the 3rd time we have stayed here in the last 6 years. It was the least appealing. The first thing you notice is that the whole place is covered with spider webs. They are everywhere on the outside, on the walls, ceilings, railings. My son and granddaughter had a room and my wife and I had a room.... More

This was our first visit to Electric City and to the Sky Deck Motel. This is quite a quaint little place but it is located literally feet from the water and the views are truly amazing. It is not a new hotel but the room was very clean and comfortable and we had a nice balcony where we could sit... More

The Columbia basin and Grand Coulee Dam had fascinated us for years. On a visit from UK we chose this motel without checking out the room. Pity we didn't because most of the furnishings were tired, the air conditioning was inadequate and probably in need of service, the a/c cover fixings were broken, the WC fittings were damaged and it...

Our family has been coming to the SkyDeck for nearly twenty years. We come several times each summer and now that the kids are grown it has become a place for family reunions. This is not a fancy hotel. This is a beach motel - nice owners and staff, nice pool, beautiful scenery and very comfortable. My kids grew up... More

We stayed at the Sky Deck because of trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed, it was pretty much as we read. The rooms are dated but very clean. A fresh coat of paint would help on the inside and out. The lake is at your door step, and the pool was great. The host was great, beds were comfortable.... More

I am sitting on the deck writing this, listening to the water lap with a gentle breeze coming off the water to cool you - doesn't get much better. The room is lovely, a very decent price for ON THE WATER during the summer. Have a fridge (if you take your ice bucket, fill it, then put it in room... More
