The Best Western Topaz Lake was clean, comfortable and allows dogs. There is an area for the dogs to go and the front desk offered to change our room to our first choice when it became available at the last minute. It was a quiet and beautiful weekend at the lake.

Ended up at this hotel slightly by accident after looking for a great area for motorcycle riding. I have nothing but good things to say about the cleanliness, helpful and caring staff, and the overall experience. The only two shortfalls were the slight difficulty in finding the entrance because of construction and the distance to the earest eating establishment for...

We stayed here one night arriving late (11:15 pm). Easy check-in, quiet location, bottom floor big room, king size bed, and seemed fairly clean. Until the next morning! Husband noticed a large black beetle type bug on the floor...walking! Creepy! We could have stepped on it during the night when we got up to use the bathroom! He scooped it...

Stayed here for one night while on a road trip trying to get around Yosemite due to the winter road closures. Easy to see from the road but a little difficult to find, larger signage is needed. The room was standard and clean, staff were ok too, nothing exceptional but did the job. There's not a great deal around to...

The hotel is down behind an empty convention center, and it was not clear exactly where to turn in to get to the hotel at first. Room was very spacious. The bed was so firm, it didn't really come in to support my lower back. I had a very painful back in the morning, and was glad I had some...

The rooms all face the lake and you get a great view . The sun rises over the lake which makes the day a beautiful start. The rooms are extra large with room to move around and it is quiet at night so a great night sleep to refresh a person. A great selection of items for your breakfast.

We stopped there on our way to visit friends. We received a wonderful greeting when we arrived, the room was great, we were given coupons for the casino & restaurant just up the street, and there was a wonderful continental breakfast. Overall an excellent stay & I would definitely go back. :) Oh forgot the wonderful view. :)

The hotel is in a good spot, but during our stay a storm came through and we had no power, water, etc....we still got charged. Stay at the hotel next door, they have generator for the entire place, including food and you can gamble.
