“Fabulous Room, great location!”
Reviewed August 22, 2008

We stayed here last weekend for our Anniversary and my DH and I both loved it! We were in a King room and the bed was awesome, the restroom very clean and spacious and we even had a little balcony overlooking Bistro 45 behind the hotel. It was simply perfect!

It was also very nice to be in the center of town and walk to mostly everything (had to drive to Pancake House, yum!).

The only thing we did not care for was the continental breakfast. As previous posters have alluded to, it is not anything special. A handful of grapes, boxed cereals and some thawed pastries make up this very uninteresting spread. Couldn't they throw a toaster on the buffet, add some waffles or bagels? That would be a little more satisfying. We were both disappointed, but I kind of figured it would be like that after reading past reviews.

Oh, one other note - can they please add water bottles to their vending machine selections? We were parched and I am a water snob - sorry!

All in all, it was a great stay! We will definitely stay here again - maybe on our next anniversary :)

We stayed at 4 different places on our Idaho/Montana trip and for the money, this ranks up there at the top. We had a beautiful room- completely renovated with a gorgeous bathroom, huge bed, couch, TV/DVD player etc. Very clean, very nice. We didn't have a view, but we don't sit in our rooms looking out the windows anyway. The staff when we checked in was great, the one when we checked out was okay. But the hotel itself is beautiful.

The one slight negative (which is also a positive) is that they have real AC in the rooms- thermostat controlled. It kept the room at a great temperature, but the drawback was that it is silent, so you could hear people walking down the hall. I kept the bathroom fan on all night to have some white noise.

The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The continental breakfast was about average (only muffins and scones, and you had to ask for tea).

Very nice location in the center of McCall. Walking distance to restaurants, waterfront, marina, gift shops, farmer's market, bike rentals. Easy parking. We rented the lakeview condo which was an excellent room with full kitchen and washer/dryer. Beautiful view, amazing to wake up and look out over the lake. Very nice indoor pool. Book and DVD library and a nice reading room. Pricier than I would have liked, but overall excellent.

Definitely still the "quaint" award winner for McCall. The extensive remodel about 1-2 years ago adds an elevator, and rooms include DVD players, so we enjoyed a Netflix we brought with, and the front desk also has movies available. The free evening wine and cookie hour is now just cookies and milk since state police cracked down on alcohol non-licensed folks (no wine for art gallery stroll in Boise anymore). Rooms are beautiful. No holiday increased rates-- $125 yearround, presumably with a modest annual increase for 2008. Evening cookie quality and the free breakfast have both gone downhill. The view from the remodeled restaurant is absolutely first class, but the breakfast service was terrible (now provided from in-house restaurant)-- a half hour before our order was taken. Fre breakfast was a small bowl of fruit, one small slice of fresh coffee cake, and one pre-fabricated frozen scone. In the past breakfast was a rather lavish spread, with both hot and cold foods self-served in a lovely dining room. This used to easily justify the $25 price difference from other area hotels-- no more. Now if you opt for Hotel McCall (which I often still would) you are paying for the nice environs and staff only.

Very nice hotel. Small and personal.

Rooms in the new wing are more modern, larger and have AC. Our party stayed in the new wing on 3rd floor, on the road side (309) and also on 2nd floor (201). Both rooms were very nice. They gave us a discount on 201 because it's near an AC unit and you can hear it all night. However, if you like low background noise while you're sleeping, it's perfect.

The old section does not have AC, but I don't think that's a problem except a few weeks during the hottest part of the year. It's more of a dorm atmosphere with folks leaving their doors open and milling about.

Breakfast was simple, but good. Awesome location (beaches and shops right across the street). Free DVDs are available (pretty big selection).

Ask about Ice Cream Alley about 1/2 block away. You get a HUGE serving of delicious ice cream for cheap.

I should have written this review years ago. I have stayed at the Hotel McCall on business trips at leat 50 times since 1990. This place is absolutely terrific. Very quiet, very comfortable, very nice staff. I usually ask for a room on the back side, only because there is occasional nighttime traffic on the street side. The hotel is so laid back that on two occassions several years ago , during the slow season, the management left me a key to the front door and told me to take any room I wanted. I don't know if they still do that, but it is typical of the super-friendly attitude of the hotel. Don't waste your time going to any other McCall hotel or motel.

What a quiet, relaxing time. The Hotel McCall has not been updated (at least the "older section). It was spotlessly clean and quiet...but the summer tourist season may change that. Wine, cookies,milk in the evenings. Coffee in the hallways beginning at 6am with 7:30 continental breakfast. Our room was #40, King private bath lakeview for $100. Perfect. Free wireless internet. Friendly and helpful front desk folks. Nice library to relax and enjoy your time in. Nice coffee shop across the street. DVD player in the room....free movie rental from the front desk collection. Phones and TV in the rooms. Definitely stay here again.
