“Relaxing stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

We went and spend a night at the Best Western Lakeway Inn on Feb 24.We really enjoyed our stay, the staff was great,the young man that check us in was so friendly and helpful. We were very tired so we did no go out but we used the pool and hot tub and it was so great to be able to relax before going back to work.The location is great and we will go back each time we need to get away.

Stayed here many times due to location, friendly staff, and fabulous happy hour at Poppes Bistro and Lounge. Our reservations have been accurate , special requests met and check in was quick and accurate. The room are clean, and tastefully decorated. Its always a pleasure to stay at this location as the staff are very warm and friendly. You really feel that being a Best Western Elite member really is special by the way that your treated.

The beds are awesome!! The people are very freindly and when we asked for something we recieved it quickly. Yet we had to ask for towels to be brought to the pool on 2 different occasions, the menu in the room does not match the available room service menu and the sauna is slippery. When I was leavng the sauna I stepped off the wood onto the concrete and slipped and fell through the door, my nose hurts. I purchased breakfast with my reservations on line (booking.com) when I got there I had to say something and was given 2 vouchers for breakfast but they could not be used for room service. The hot tub and pool were nice. The shower curtain in the room bathroom would not close all the way, it looked like it had been broken and reattached the wrong way. The bar was great and the bar tender definately knew her stuff and let us know when happy was.

April Y,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay with us. It is from these comments that makes us improve.

I am glad you liked the beds! Those beds were improved recently and I am glad to see you enjoyed them.

I apologize about the menu. We just recently set in forth a new menu for our outlets and we have the menus being printed for the rooms. Until those menus arrive, we have placed temporary menus in all rooms that match with the new current menu.

I am very sorry for the sauna, but I am glad to see it appears you are ok. If you need anything, please contact me ASAP.

As for your breakfast vouchers, these should have been handed to you at check in. I will make sure the front desk is checking for this, so this unnecessary extra step that you experienced is not taken.

Also, I will make sure the shower rod in your room is fixed right away.

Again, thank you for the comments. I will make sure everyone gets a chance to see them.

Make it a Great Day!

My son is a student at Western Washington University. We have stayed multiple times at the Lakeway. We had tried another hotel a few times but came back to the Lakeway, it is much nicer, much quieter and much closer to Western, downtown and Fairhaven. It is right off of the freeway and has easy access to Bellis Fair Mall and other shopping.

The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly. We arrived late and left fairly early, so we did not have a chance to do much more than go to our room and have breakfast in the restaurant in the morning. The rooms are fine, but average. Overall, a reasonable value, and comfortable stay. We looked at lots of reviews for hotels in the area before booking this one. The hotel was rated farily high. Not sure I would rate it as highly, but we were satisfied with our stay and would recommend the place. .
