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!

Found this superb inn on an extended drive through the US. One of the best places I stayed and I still think about the view and how warm and cosy it was. Reasonable price, friendly staff and good food in the restaurant. Shame it's such a long drive to get there!

A very pleasant stay. Easy access in and out, with a top quality restaurant next door. Rooms are exceptionally nice, and have several electrical receptacles at desk, table and counter levels, for easily charging the usual array of electronic/electrical gadgets travelers utilize today. No need to move furniture, unplug hair dryers or microwaves, etc. to charge a phone, or use... More

Arrived in the evening. When I walked into my room - fireplace and music was on to greet me to what was a beautiful room with an incredible view. Clean, comfortable and functional, the room was excellent. The complementary breakfast included assorted fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs, and packages muffins & Danishes. I enjoyed my stay and will stay here... More

A large group of us (Puget Sound MINI Motoring Club) checked in quite late on a Saturday night and the check in went flawlessly. The room clerk did an excellent job checking us all in in a timely manner. I believe we had 20 rooms. Our room had an outstanding view of the lake. It was quite and well kept,... More

Hotel is fine but here are my complaints: Very unhelpful staff and unreliable pricing. They are playing you to the hilt, one moment it's this price, next moment another. Once they got your money, no more interest to please. Up the street is another small motel with extremely friendly owners, half the price, directly on lake shore. Waste you money... More
