“Worst Experience Ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

My family HAD been staying at this place over the past few years but our most recent experience left us with a bad taste. We made a reservation months in advance and when we arrived to check into the property they said that the manager canceled our reservation. No one from the hotel or from Best Western ever responded to offer an explanation even leaving multiple messages with customer service. We were left scrambling to look for a place to stay for 4 days. Luckily we found a place at Campbell's down the street.

It has been 2 months and still no response from either the company or the property. We will no longer stay at any of Best Western's properties

Room Tip: Don't stay here stay at Campbell's. Better service and cleaner property

Outdoor hot tub, great breakfast, right on the lake. Kitchen in room was perfect for wine and cheese. Pool looked nice also, but we went for the jacuzzi. Couldn't ask for more for your money's worth. Forest fire on east side of the lake made it eerie

Very clean, nice rooms but a little steep on the price. I would comment more about the view that we paid for but due to the large wildfires in the area we literally cannot see the lake from our balcony because of thick smoke. The fires are not the hotel's fault but a break on the rate since we paid for a view should have been offered at check-in IMO. They have had so many cancellations, I'm surprised they weren't offering this.

Perfect location, waterfront looking out over the lake, and close to down town chelan. Staff was very polite and accommodating, especially the night security guard. Rooms were clean and updated (except the tv's). Definitely was pricey to stay there on Labor day weekend though.

Very few faults, really enjoyed my stay from beginning to end, fantastic rooms, really comfy beds, brilliant view of the lake from my room, very friendly staff especially the chamber maids , slightly disappointed with complimentary breakfast, but in no way did this detract from my over all views of this hotel, would defiantly stay again .

We stayed here over Labor Day Weekend and were very happy with the hotel and the service. The hotel is right on the water with a beach and park with play equipment for the kids. It also has a beach volleyball area. The hotel staff was very friendly and the service was great. They have a complimentary breakfast that is very good. It includes waffles, eggs, cereal and pastries etc..
This is a great place to stay.

We spent one night here, as part of our US road trip but it really deserved a longer stay. The hotel has a perfect lake-side location, just outside the small town centre. Facilities and room were the best I've seen in a BW+ with a large room, comfortable twin queen beds and efficient air con. The pool areas (inside and outside) are nice, if a little small for when the hotel is very busy. Standard basic breakfast, but at the rate we paid, excellent value for money. We would happily stay here again - first BW in the US that I've ever felt that about!
