“Worst Place We Ever Stayed In”
Reviewed August 9, 2008

Our room was smelly - mostly because of the mold and mildew on the walls coming through the fresh paint.

Our room was noisy - as it was right up on the street. Hardly room to walk in the room as it was so tiny. The tiny window mounted AC was not enough to cool down the room into the 70's.

The owner lady was rude and accusing when we told her that our room was not up to par. Also refused to refund the nights that we did not stay as, for health/cleanliness reasons, we had to book the rest of our vacation at another hotel.

We filed out a report with the health department due to the mold issue. We also had to file a claim against the dishonest overcharge on our credit card.

We have never had worse accommodations than this DUMP! Stay far, far away!!

Our favorite getaway. Close to our home in San Francisco. Always clean. Owners are helpful and accomodating. Well stocked kitchenettes. Within easy, pleasant walking distance to everything in town. It is popular with people on business as well, so reserve ahead of time.

Credit card users beware! They charged our credit card even though we cancelled our res timely. Then after the dispute was complete, they waited 8 months and charged our credit card again with a different merchant number! A year later and we are finally done with these folks, but we had to cancel our card in the process!

I stay at the Mallard House regularly when in Lakeport on business. I have stayed in just about all the rooms. It is always spotlessly clean. Rooms are comfortble and nicely decorated. Rates are very reasonable. I like the little package of cookies that are on my bed when I check in and sweet rollls and coffee in my room for breakfast. Great place for families, as they have a variety of room types with multiple beds, kitchens. I have tried other motels in the area, but I don't bother staying anyplace else. 2 restaurants are less than 50 yards away which are good for breakfast. I would recommend Carlos & Vinny's for a nice place for lunch, dinner or drinks. They are open late which is rare in Lakeport. It is on Main Street at the edge of downtown.

THis hotel was very disapointing. It is quite old, there were no chairs or table in our room. We stayed there the night of 9/6/2003. Room was very crowded.
