“A good place to crash while in Chelan”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

Pros and Notes: Close to water, views of lake from all rooms with obstructions of trees from park located in front of the hotel, Nice rustic exterior gives one the feeling of a "lodge atmosphere" upon arrival. Overall, resort was clean, continental breakfast was OK but nothing to get excited about, Your average Best Western ; nothing bad but nothing fantastic.

Some Cons: Inside the room felt like a standard motel room and lost it's lodge feeling; nothing super glamorous other than the Keurig coffee machine and flat screen TV. While my deck had a view of the lake, the view was obstructed by several trees from the park located in front of the hotel. Not a true "Lakeside" lodge in my opinion with the trees, parking lot, and vehicles/people below making noise in the park and sort of ruining the scenery/ambiance of the area.

Overall, a nice place to crash while exploring the greater Chelan area if you're not into camping.

Room Tip: Request a room from the highest floor possible. The higher your room, the better view you might hav...

Just a last minute get away with my husband, and we chose to go to Lake Chelan. The lodge is very spacious, The grounds are well maintained, and from every room there is a view of the lake, what a plus that is. We booked our room just before we left on Friday, and about 4 hours later when we got there, they had already given us an upgrade to a larger suite....it was well kept, neat, clean, and very spacious. The only problem we had the entire time was the local internet went out on Saturday night, and did not come back before we had left on Sunday...we found out, that it had gone out to many places in the city, so this was no fault of the hotel. The continental breakfast was awesome, the room to eat in was on the 3rd floor which was our floor, at first I thought that was a little strange, till I saw the room....unlike a lot of places where the room is so small and crowded, this was a huge room with floor to ceiling windows that overlooked the lake....what a beautiful way to start the day!! We are making plans to come back in the summer for some fun in the sun, and bring our granddaughter with us!! We will recommend this to all family and friends

Room Tip: Any room is a good room since it has a view of the lake!

One night business stay started off with a warm friendly welcome and a nicely appointed very large double queen room that felt newly remodeled. Excellent soundproofing - the parking lot outside my door was filled, but I never heard a noise.

On the road for a week at a time, I depend on Internet access in the evenings and mornings. The first evening the wifi varied between painfully slow and gone. The next morning, while the network showed up...my devices couldn't connect.

I called the front desk clerk who confirmed that she too was experiencing very slow connection. I was able to connect well in the breakfast room, so it may have simply be that my room (122) is just put of range. The hotel and staff warrant another try at this hotel, so I'll ask for a room closer to the breakfast room next time.

Breakfast room is spacious and lodge like with a beautiful view of lake and mountains- food on this mid-week off-season stay was pretty marginal. Suggestions for improvement on the room are very minor- the shower curtain isn't quite long enough to stay firmly tucked inside the tub with the curved shower rod....the shower head was clogged so that the water didn't flow smoothly...the towel rack placed just beyond easy reach from the shower (though there was a stack of towels next to it). Bed however, is by far the best ive found in a Best Western.

Better Internet connection and this would easily be my firm choice in Chelan. I'll be back to try it out again.

Room Tip: A room closer to the breakfast room may ensure stronger Internet connection

Our stay at the Chelan Best Western was a perfect winter get-away. We had our two grandchildren with us, ages 4 & 7. The pool was great fun, the park on the water was good for throwing rocks, and the breakfast was very good. It was one of the cleanest motels I've ever been to. Very enjoyable.

Great place to stay. A suite in the winter makes a great getaway. For $70 it is a steal. Homemade soup, salad, and cookies for dinner and a nice continental breakfast. Indoor pool and hot tub. Nice pillow top bed and great little mini kitchen, even a view of the lake! Staff was extremely nice.

Best Westerns can be sort of all over the place in quality, but this one was great. We only stopped in Chelan for one night on our way to Stehekin, so I'm going to be honest we weren't looking for a lot. This Best Western was perfect for us though. The rooms were clean, modern, big, reasonably priced, the bed was comfortable, the front desk was helpful with restaurant recommendations, and breakfast was included. It was exactly what we needed.

We love this place! We go here each winter just before Christmas. The location is great. Practically surrounded by Lakeside Park. Rooms are nice, clean and contemporary. TV's with DVD players. They also offer DVD rentals available at the office. Pet friendly rooms for and additional $10 a night. Great continental breakfast with a wonderful view of the lake and park. Nice pool, with a great hot tub also overlooking the park and lake. The hot tub is awesome in the snow!!!

For the price, you simply can't beat this place.
