Worst experience I've ever had at a motel. I've had my shares of low rate chain hotels, bear in mind. The signs & contract day no smokers, which to any reasonable person would mean no smoking in the rooms or on the property. I had been trying to quit smoking, but I had ONE cigarette OFF the property. I rolled... More

I wish I had read the reviews before I booked this place. I understood there was a no smoking policy here. My adult son who smokes 3-5 cigarettes per day did not smoke anywhere on the property. Actually I was unaware he even smoked! We traveled here for a mini vacation and to watch the meteor shower. Planned the trip... More

We planned on staying here until we had a very rude reception from the woman who owns the place. One person in our group was a smoker, she had no plans of smoking anywhere near the place but we were treated like we had leprasy or something. We reluctantly got a room only to change our mind.This place is run... More

We had stayed here before but we previously were given a much larger room. Although the room was small it was very clean! We thought for the price we paid there should have been some shampoo included. It would have been nice to have a coffee maker in the room, although coffee was supplied in the mornings in the lobby.... More

this motel is very well kept. the rooms were very clean. the bed is a little soft. the grounds are clean . no pool. no work out room the problem is the owners there are not friendly and very weird. they act strange. all they want is your money. the rooms are over priced.

Considering the type of motel the room was clean and supplied ok. The issues were, the internet was weak and couldn't be used. I called the office they said just keep trying. The signal from across the street was better. I don't travel a great deal but some, so checking the room alarm clock was something I wasn't in the... More

There's nothing more frustrating than ignorant and negligent business owners who don't know law and public policy: "The ADA protects disabled individuals by allowing them to bring their service dog with them to most places that the public is permitted, including restaurants, hotels, housing complexes, and even air travel".....this dog is NOT a "pet", but is instead required or necessary...

We have stayed at the Lakeside for at least 15 years and find the property to be very comfortable. The owners are really top drawer and keep the property in good shape. The location is very centrally located with easy walking distance to several restaurants and parks. BV has really come along with a bit of growth and has many... More

Close to everything, but still tucked away from hwy 24 sufficiently. Being a small town, all feed & supply (or, if needed, doctors etc) facilities are within 5 minutes of walking. Providing decent rest and sleep 22 to 7. Reliably clean, neat and polite. Quiet and respectful guests appreciated.

My wife and I stayed here 3 days in September and the room was perfect for our visit to Buena Vista. We filled every day with local mountain adventures and returned to our room worn out at the end of the day, I don’t think we even turned on the TV. The room was exceptionally clean and the bed was...
