“Beautiful views, great pools but very old rooms”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

We have been here for 5 days, staying with our 2 kids in one of the family suites.
The strong points: 1) nice location on the park with lake views and easy lake swimming access, though you must drive to nicer restaurants (there is a Subway around the corner); 2) they have family suites available with a kitchenette that is well supplied, good size refrigerator, etc. plus there are outdoor gas BBQs you can use; 3) two nice pools - one outdoor, one heated indoor, with towels at the pool; 4) TVs in both the front room and bedroom.

The downsides: 1) WiFi often isn't working reliably and signal is very weak; 2) we were woken up every morning at 6:30am by the people above our room walking around - the ceilings creak badly and there is little to no sound insulation; 3) the kitchen equipment looks like they haven't been updated in at least 20 years, and while the furniture is in OK shape, the couch and seat don't even match, and look like they came from my grandmother's house. 4) the towels in our room were small and uncomfortable. 5) the free breakfast was very low quality other than the make-your-own waffles; we skipped that after the first day.

Overall, this wasn't a great value for $240 per night + tax. We can see why it was still available when we were booking a last minute August trip to Chelan.

Room Tip: Perhaps avoid the ceiling noise creaking by staying on the top floor

Spent five days in here earlier this summer and we had a great time. Clean contemporary great pools and right next to one beautiful city park.
Able to cook a meal in here with the micro wave oven and cooking utensils and mini fridge.
The view from our balcony was inspiring and from the breakfast balcony simply breath taking. Perfect for the family and a summer.

We come to Chelan once a year for a conference and given a choice between the Lakeside Lodge and Campbell's, I will always pick the Lakeside Lodge - even though the conference is held at Campbell's! While there is no restaurant on property, the rooms are bigger, nicer and far more comfortable than Campbell's. Each room has a lake view, balcony and living room. There is also nice beach and playground right next to the hotel and the hotel has a wonderful indoor pool. If you have children, this is a far better place to stay. There is also a nice free breakfast that is offered each morning. The only downside is that you have to drive to the downtown but that drive takes only a few minutes. However, if walking to shopping is important then you may want to pick another location.

This hotel is perfect except for parking can be an issue. The rooms are large and suitable for an extended stay. Across the street from a Chelan city park and outside of town enough to keep away from 12 million tourist on a hot day. Housekeeping and front desk were helpful the breakfast is slightly above average, but get there before 8 am or it is just a little crazy unless you like chaos. Will stay here again

We were pleasantly surprised with a free upgrade to a suite when the room we had booked wasn't ready upon arrival. The room was on the second floor, with a deck overlooking the pool and city park. Really a gorgeous view. There was a separate sitting room from the bedroom which was so nice. We loved our room so much we brought dinner back so we could hang out in our room! We spent two nights and two good night's sleep. We enjoyed walking down to the beach through the pretty city park. The hotel was very conveniently located for our boat trip to Steheken on the Lady of the Lake.

Room Tip: Don't choose the cheapest room in any hotel. This upgrade was such a pleasant surprise I will o...

We stayed in the jacuzzi suite, well worth the 20 extra bucks (off season).
The room was nice, the bed was very comfortable, very nice breakfast buffet, and located right along Lakeside Park on the shores of Lake Chelan, though it isn't really walking distance from the downtown Chelan area. The pool is one of the cleanest indoor hotel pools we have found. We plan to return for my daughters birthday party!

Average place, stayed only one night passing through town. the hot tub has agreat view, but wasn't working up to par (not hot enough). Standard breakfast, ho hum.... Front desk staff was plesant, but did not go out of the way to merit exception. Will think before staying again.
