What a day. Rained all day, and I was driving on twisty back roads. Then it got dark. I made it to the 20 (driving on the 53) only to find out it was closed due to s landslide. It was pouring, and I had twisty road fatigue, so I called it a night. I stopped in at the best...

Thumbs Up! I stay at some really nice hotels in high in areas like San Diego and San Fran that don't match this hotel and staff for quality! You will really enjoy your stay here for business or pleasure. Have a good time and enjoy.

A very beautiful motel with lots of interesting aspects. Clear Lake has great potential to be a tourist destination. This motel is probably the best in the area. It stands out and should be a reliable stop for anyone visiting the area of fishing or boating. The wine industry is just getting off the ground. Soon cannabis tourism could follow.

I have to admit it that I am a hotel snob and have never stayed at a Best Western and I am glad I got the chance to. Came down here to visit the in-laws and this is the nicest hotel in town so decided to give it a try. I really enjoyed the warm, old school charm the place...

The Internet was down and the staff did not tell us this upon check-in; the restaurant was cold and you had to look for staff, the checkout was hard-I needed a hard copy of the bill and we couldn't get one and no one offered us a hand written color.

The rooms are good size and nice and clean. The customer service is very lacking and they could make people more comfortable about security since they have cameras that do not show much except the entries. The desk clerk could not tell us how to get to our room and they do not really seem to care much about the...

The drive is about a good 45 minutes or so west of I-5. Well worth the drive. So scenic, peaceful and relaxing. Clearlake is a beautiful small town with one of the best hotels in the entire nation: Best Western. The staff is ultra friendly and helpful. They greeted me and treated me with the utmost kindness. I like that....

The room I had was nice with a good view. The restaurant attached to the hotel is good, get the breakfast burrito! I would have liked more water pressure in the shower. But other than that, great room in a good location.
