“Definitely Stay Here - This Place was Great !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2011

Stayed at the Lakeside Lodge and Suites for 5 days - right after the 4th of July. It's just far enough out of town for a nice trolley ride into town. The location avoids the downtown hustle and bustle and our room was extremely quiet. The beds were comfortable and way above our expectations. We were with a large group (over 75 people) and the hotel went above and beyond to accomodate us. Nice park-like setting and right on the water, for a quiet walk, or to enjoy activities during the day. Your room rate includes breakfast - we loved the fresh waffles you could make and the very clean dining area. The coffee was also very good - so we didnt' feel the need to fight the long, slow line at Starbucks but did go when it was quieter. We did not use the laundry facilities or the workout room but they also looked very well kept-up. Defninitely check this facility out - it's rated the #2 hotel in Chelan for a reason.

Pluses.....
1. Excellent pricing-slightly before high season in Mid June but $125 per night is very good in Chelan.
2. Large rooms..
3. Right by Lake Chelan Park with access to beach and swimming area, b ball court.
4. Ice machine, snacks, soda machines working.
5. Very good TVs with sets in each room and good cable selection.
6. Pretty clean.
7. Good beds. Lots of pillows. Beds a little to stiff for me, but rest of family liked them.
Minuses.....
1. Staff is moderately friendly-typical of Chelan, everyone in Chelan seems to know that more tourists are right behind the next one, so every service person we met in the town was fairly disinterested in service. Not bad mind you, just indifferent.
2. Maid service did not refill t.p. or kleenex unless you order it, but promptly brought to the room when needed.
3. We switched rooms to a bigger room half way through and the AC never worked in one room. It was ok since the bedroom AC worked, but they never did get it fixed while we were there for the 4 nights.
4. Breakfast mediocre but fine for basic continental.
All in all, good bang for the buck.

Let me start with the rooms were HUGE, the view was to die for, the maid service was on it, and the breakfast was killer. We showed up during the busy part of the day and checked in within 2 seconds. Found parking, unloaded and headed to the pool. The next morning we realized that the amount of coffee provided in our room was not enough, so my hubby hunted down our maid and asked for some more. She handed him a huge handful of keurig cups and sent him on his way. From that point forward she made sure that our room was stocked to the gills with extra coffee. Our kids loved their breakfast, enjoying hot waffles and hard boiled eggs, while I chose fresh fruit, yogurt and bagels. There was a ton to chose from! We stayed at this hotel for 6 days and we dragged everything in and out of that room, clothes on the floor, sand in the bathroom, dirty dishes on the counter, and every day when we got back from our outings our room was immaculate. Our maid even folded some clothes that had fallen off the bed! We left her the biggest tip we have ever left at a hotel, and wish we could have brought her home with us! The grounds were immaculate, the pool was never too crowded and it was a short jaunt down to the lake. We ended up adding an extra night to our stay just because we were having such an awesome time. I had never stayed at a Best Western before, as I myself am more of a "Sheraton" or "Hilton" kind of girl, but man was I missing out! Because of our stay here, we are trying out the Best Western in Anaheim when we leave for Disney in a week!! We will be staying at this location every summer from now on!

We usually visit during the off season. We try to make it a multiple night stay both during the winter and early spring. It makes for a very relaxing time. The suites with jetted tubs are well worth the extra money. Knowing that Tom and his staff will treat you well gives my wife and I peace of mind. We can't think of a better place for a quick getaway .

Room Tip: Ask, these people are honest.

We were very happy to check into this Hotel on the 24th. Property is very well taken care of and the staff were friendly. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of forgetting an outfit that I had placed in the bedroom closet after we had checked out. We were approximately 3 hours away when I realized my mistake & called the hotel. At that time I was told to call back the next day in order to ck with Housekeeping. Unfortunately, the next day I was told that nothing was found. Now, two days later, the manager has confirmed that nothing has been found and that no other guests had checked into this room. By the time we had checked out we had decided that this was a location that we would be returning to with numerous family members. However, the hotel may be very comfortable and the staff friendly, but if I can't feel safe having them take care of my or my family's valuables, then it's Not a hotel that we will return to or recommend. The manager stated that he will call me if anything turns-up and I will certainly update this posting if that happens to a much higher (Happier) rating!

Because of connivence of location we have stayed here many times,with family members booking additional rooms. They have never given us the rooms we requested and they promised us. They always say "you should have requested " and we had always made a point to do so. Last stay the ice machine and pop machine were not in service. There was no toilet paper and the kitchen utensils were less than minimal. The tv programing listed in the book were not available and the single cup coffee pot for a group is not very useful if you want to have a cup of coffee together at the same time. The staff taking reservations are either not bright or are told by management to make promises they do not intend to keep just to get you to book with them. One trip we checked our confirmation five times and when we arrived they still had given us the wrong rooms.

Room Tip: can not provide e-mail confirmation so GOOD LUCK

We had an amazing trip to Lake Chelan and really enjoyed out stay at Best Western lakeside Lodge & Suites. They have a great indoor pool the kids love, free breakfast, great view rooms adjacent to Lakeside Park in Chelan, Down the street from Slidewaters park and only 1.5 miles from downtown restaurants, Great Rates, clean rooms and awesome ammenities. I highly recommend Best Western Lakeside lodge and Suites. They have great Winter Specials too - Snowmobile, Cross Country Ski, Innertubing at Echo Valley. Winter Wonderland. Summer's are amazing in Chelan.
