Bob and his staff were extremely welcoming to our family and went above and beyond to ensure that we had what we needed during our stay. Our family stayed in cabins 25 and 26 and they were clean and inviting. The cabins were wonderful and included a coffee maker for K-cups, a microwave and a mini-fridge, along with a table and 4 chairs, 2 queen beds and a flat screen tv. The offer a “no touch” check in and online digital signatures which made it very easy to check in and check out. I highly recommend this location, especially if you have a larger group and need more than one cabin.

Clearlake, CA is not a getaway destination and I wish I had known that before I booked. This place had good reviews so we booked here just trying for a weekend getaway. Pool was adequate. Rooms were sparkling clean and spacious. Area just doesn't provide anything to do, street walkers are everywhere, and nothing in town is updated. And the lake algae was unfortunate but we rented a boat on the other side of the lake in Lakeport at Disney's Boat Rentals and had a fun day tubing. All in all, the place is fine to rent from but you don't want to visit Clearlake, CA any time soon.

We booked for 3 nights and could only stand to stay 1. They intentionally mislead. The messaging they give you pre-check-in is "the algae are harmless"; the letter you find in the hotel room post-check-in warns about cyanotoxin and only after I let my kids swim in the pool did I do enough online research to realize that my kids were being harmed from inhalation. I understand that they need to make a living, but doing it at the expense of their guests' health is terrible. I asked for a refund for the 2 nights we didn't stay for, but never heard back. Given the health trouble we had, I think a refund of the nights we didn't stay would be fair. Do not go! We had lung pain, eye infections, fatigue. It's not worth it.

The website and pictures show a welcoming and clean environment. But, don't let the website or pictures fool you for a minute. The owner is high strung, suspicious and highly innapropriate. Bob, the owner is very rude and condascending. I went here to visit family and celebrate my sons birthday with plans to rent a jet ski or pontoon boat which you can't do due to the lake conditions and they don't tell you the truth or that you should not get into the lake because it is a health hazard. Also,There is no privacy and you will be micro-managed and watched with all the cameras around the facility and I wouldn't be surprised if there were cameras or recording devices in the rooms. Also, this area is like a 3rd world country, very rundown shacks and methamphatime laiden community. I felt very unsafe there. Not to mention the smell of raw sewage. You can't spend time outside because of the stench and the Natzi watching every move you make. It does not make for a relaxing and friendly vacation. Do yourself a favor and pick The Lodge at Blue Lakes. You will thank me! Don't even consider this disgusting smelly 3rd world country. You cannot go in the lake or fish in it because it is considered unhealthy. You won't want to anyway because you will vomit from the stench. Good luck if you pick this place.

The guy who assisted me with the contactless process was nice. Check in was seamless. The place is super relaxing. I was in unit 15 and it’s perfect coz there’s a big tree in front that gives shade while sitting on the porch. The room itself is cute and relaxing. The AC is freezing (which is good). The surrounding area seems sketchy but when I entered the property, I felt safe.

Cozy, clean, quiet lakeside cottages with great scenic views of the lake. We had #20 which is roomy and well situated with an unobstructed view of the lake. This property is pet friendly for a $20.00 per night charge. Be advised however that there is a predictable algae bloom which has a pungent odor...this is worse when it is hot outside.

Very cute and comfortable cabins right on the lake! Very helpful staff who really worked hard to make it a great stay. Clean and very centrally located to explore! Really fun to sit and watch the sunset. They also have boat rentals.

What a fantastic property! They are rated as the #1 hotel in Clear Lake for good reason. The entire property was top-notch, inside and out. The grounds were lovely and welcoming, and the cottage where we stayed (#11) was spotless and comfortable. We used the grill along with the outside seating areas alongside the lake and everything was in great order. Service was friendly, fast, and tech-friendly to allow for no-contact check-in / check-out. Highly recommend it; we will definitely be back!

Thank you Bob for such wonderful service. We enjoyed the use of our double kayak while there, we went out on the water so many times, the room was nice and spacious and fit my family of 5 just fine, the kids enjoy the small beach/lake area, the only downer was the pool being closed but, most places don't open up their pools until Memorial Day anyway. We even received complimentary service. ~LaTiana

It was a really busy weekend up there but we really enjoyed our stay there. Our cabin was right on the lake and overlooked the marina and it was nice. I would definitely go back again. The bugs were allowed to deal with. But the next time we go up I think will bring some barbecue bowls they had a bunch of grills that were ready for use and it might be nice to use the pool unfortunately the pool was closed
