Please come back for a dinner on me. Saturday night, our lead chef was called to fight fire in Chelan, and our lead... More

I was surprised to find a higher end hotel in such a small town. I was expecting to find a mom and pop motel type but it was more like a Best Western. Clean rooms, many amenities and a beautiful setting on the Columbia River. Extremely friendly and helpful front counter staff - there was a problem with the internet... More

I dont know why this place is so expensive, its like a fly trap, big beautiful motel right in the highway next to the river, first you have to park across the street, hope you dont slip on the icey sidewalk walking back, the staff was rude and all have angry looks on their face, not very nice either, obviously...

We had a previous issue with this hotel, but they made up for it with class! This time our stay was very comfortable and the room was great. The hotel staff were quite accommodating of our needs. We ate dinner at the adjoining restaurant where our meal was great and the atmosphere was very nice too. A definite repeat spot... More

We had a good stay here and found the room to be quite comfortable and clean. Great view of the lake too. Breakfast in the morning was quite disappointing, what you'd normally expect from a 2 star motel.

Howard's Lakeshore Inn was an unexpected first class experience in the small town of Pateros, WA. The rooms are very well appointed with fireplaces in each, as well as the expected microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker. All rooms face the Columbia river (or Lake Pateros as it is called at this point) and have small balconies on which to enjoy... More

It had a clean room, comfortable bed, but the continental breakfast was completely depleted at 8:45am. Didn't look like it was very good to begin with. Expensive breakfast next door at the river restaurant.

This is a lovely, quiet hotel with a fantastic view of the Columbia to wake up to! Very pleasant rooms with fireplace, very clean. Check in and out were speedy and courteous and the restaurant next door is handy and good!
