Clear Lake Cottages & Marina
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Clearlake
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We met some friends at Clearlake and each of us had a cottage that had just been built/renovated. We had kitchenettes, dining tables and chairs on the porch, with views of the lake. Everyone who worked there was helpful and cheery. The first cabin we got was too near the road, so we asked for, and got, one further away and closer to the lake. There's a pool with plenty of tables and chairs, and a maintenance guy who keeps the pool and grounds clean and trimmed. There are bugs, gnat-like things, but they don't bite. The beds were comfy and everyone remarked on the great pillows. There's a beach with access for swimming, a lawn area on the lake and kayak rentals. It was very nice, more so because the cottages are spaced well (no adjoining walls). It was reasonably-priced and totally enjoyable.

We found this place over the website and booked it for 3 nights. We liked it so much we decided to stay an additional night. The staff is fantastic and went above and beyond helping us when our pooches locked themselves in the truck at check in!!!! They also provided us with great information on where to eat. The room was wonderful and more than enough room for us and our 2 critters. It was very clean and the grounds were very well kept too. We enjoyed being able to dock our boat in one of their slips and take it out fishing and for just cruising around the water with our dogs. Thank you all for the experience of staying at your cottages. We will be back!! :-)

Had such a blast! This was our first time staying here and our first time to Clearlake. We had reservations at another place, but it was awful so I drove around and came upon this place. Thank goodness! The cottage was set up like a studio apartment and very clean. The manager was super helpful and had great suggestions on where to eat , hike, wine taste and rent boats. We rented a boat for the day from a place in lakeport and came back and fished from the shore. Great times!

Based on reviews, we visited Clear Lake Cottages and Marina.

The place is clean, cute and right on the lake. Our cottage was great. Will definitely go again. This area of Clear Lake is not too "upscale" but this property is great. The grounds are also very well kept.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room #12 Perfect for two people.

My job placed me and my crew in Clearlake for a 2 month job. The first night I stayed in Clearlake was a disaster in a nearby hotel. I got on the phone looking for somewhere nicer. We called Clearlake Cottages and Marina and was surprised to hear how nice the staff was and were willing to work with us on long term stays. After arriving I was completely floored by how nice and clean the rooms were and all of the amenities they had to offer. It took about thirty seconds for me to think it over and sign the papers. If I ever make it back to Clearlake I would not stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: Not a bad cottage in the bunch.

A shame really, as the accommodation was pretty good but as soon as you arrive, the stench of the lake is over powering. You just can't sit outside. Apparently the lake algae hangs around for months and rots on top of the lake. You just can use appropriate words on this site to describe the smell. DO NOT consider visiting Clear Lake unless you ring to check on the condition of the Lake in relation to algae.

The Cottages and marina were nice although well over priced. There are many derelict buildings and jetty's around the lake, not surprising as who would want to stay there.

Look for a better place to stay.

Room Tip: Just don't stay here

ClearlakeCottages, General Manager at Clear Lake Cottages & Marina, responded to this reviewResponded February 23, 2013

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We,as a intimate inn, strive to make each of our guests stay with us a positive experience and are saddened we were not able to provide that for you. We endeavor to meet or exceed the expectations of each of our guests and when have not accomplished this we take each of our guests suggestions on how to improve our inn to heart and do our best to make the changes we can. Guest satisfaction is of the up most importance at our inn!

Unfortunately, you visited our inn when the algae was at it's worst. This happens approximately 20-30 days out of the year. We have taken measures to help alleviate the problem the algae causes and plan to increase our measures with more equipment this summer so that the algae that blooms near the shore of the lake will not have a negative impact on our guests.

We have been in contact with our local officials about this issue on several occasions and have asked them to do more to make our lake just as beautiful on the algae concentrated days as it is during the other 335 days of the year. We ask all visitors who have had a negative experience visiting Clearlake to contact them as well as we feel change will only happen if we are all proactive. We would appreciate you contacting our Water Resources Director, Scott De Leon, at (707)263-2344 and/or our District Supervisor, Jeff Smith, at (707)263-2368.

We hope that you will come visit us again. We would love the opportunity to show you what Clearlake is like the majority of the year! If you would like to discuss this matter further, or have any other suggestions, I would love to hear from you. You can contact me by email at cherie@kilaproperties.com or by phone at (707)995-5253.
