“El Grande Inn, Clearlake, CA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

The hotel was very nice it is one of the best ,Best westerns that I have seen. The only thing I did not like was the door on the rear elevator did not close by itself, I had to pull it closed to go up to my room. Later when I wanted to go down the elevator never came and I finally just walked down the stairs. I assume the door would not close by itself and stayed because of that. Other than that the hotel was very clean and the room was fine. Andrea was very helpful in finding me a room that was quite as I was very tiered after a long day. The lack of a full breakfast that is offered at most Best Westerns was a bit of a letdown as I normally take advantage of that. I did go down to eat in the onsite resterant but they did not open till 7: 00 , I needed to be moving before that a I had a job to do in Middletown in the morning. I wound up checking out and stopping at a local place there in Middletown for breakfast. Other than that it was ok.

Clearlake, Ca does not have many great hotels, but this is one of the better ones....Clean, affordable, personable and conveniently located. We had business matters to attend to and needed to spend the weekend. We enjoyed our stay. Pros: clean rooms, nice staff, restaurant in hotel as well as funky, fun bar....swimming pool also. Cons: room was dated, bathtub paint was coming off, beds were super hard (better in other rooms which we have stayed) a remodel would be nice, but still clean and ok. Thank you for a nice weekend!

We stayed in the lake view king suite. It was the smallest king suite we've ever seen. The king bed took up the whole room & was hard as rocks. You could hardly close the bathroom door when you were in there. The furniture & decor was far from being nice enough for a suite. We heard the traffic all night. The standard rooms look better than the suites.

I was very pleased with the staff was very professional and friendly, service was very good, cleanliness of the hotel, pool and hot tub was excellent, location of the hotel was very good, on a main road very easy to locate, rooms are very spacious and clean, and the food at the on-site restaurant was very good and the waitress was very polite and prompt. I would recommend this hotel to co-workers, family and friends. I will be staying in this hotel again. The best in the area.

Your choices are really limited in this area. For the price, do yourself a favor stay at a hotel in Ukiah and drive to the lake for day use. Better values, and amenities. Free breakfast, wine reception, morse food selections in city. Staff more friendly. It was basically get you in room and check you out of room mentality

This hotel is fairly pleasant and has a nice atrium, The facility is a bit tired. The biggest issue is that the entire place reeks of cigaret smoke, even in a non-smoking room. The staff was pleasant if somewhat casual and the room was a bit tired, but clean.

Rooms and grounds were very clean. Front desk staff took care of everything we needed. Rooms were a little small but comfortable beds, good HDTV flat screen. Indoor pool and out door hot tub were clean. Hotel has a small lounge and attached restaurant both were more than acceptable. I'd stay at this hotel again even if it wasn't in Clearlake (In Clearlake...this is the really the only good choice)
