“Great room with a stunning view”
Reviewed June 5, 2010

Stayed here for only one night.Wished it could have been several more.

Our suite was two rooms,two queen beds, a small kitchenette,microwave and a smallish bathroom with the vanity area outside.
The beds are right next to the outside entry though and we could hear the clunk of the housekeeping carts as they rolled by.
They start early in the morning so don't expect to sleep in!
The sitting room had a large sofa and small combined table and chairs for meals.
There was a double glass sliding door that opened onto a large balcony with the most stunning view of Lake Chelan. Plenty of room to move around in overall.
The day was perfectly sunny which only added to the beauty.

We did experience a small plague of flying insects in the room so we guess they come and go with the seasons.
There is a complimentary breakfast in the conference area also with very nice views.

There is not a lot around without a car as it is a few miles into town.
There is a Subway in the gas station a block away.
Other than that there are several restaurants and supermarkets in town to chose from and and a Walmart just outside of town.

This hotel is just a little off the beaten track if you like to be in the thick of things but it suited us just fine.The views are worth it.You will need your own transport although we think there is a local bus service into town.

We actually walked into town via the lake but it is seriously close to the main road in places.It would be nice if they could build pedestrian walkway for safety for those who like to go by two horse power.

The only disappointment was the surly reception staff which is not what we are used to from BW.

We would definitely come back given the chance.

This motel is designed to take advantage of a beautiful setting, overlooking the Lake Chelan with a nice park in the foreground. The rooms are above average and most rooms have balconies or patios with good views of the lake, well landscaped grounds and outdoor pool and spa. There is also a nice indoor pool The dual purpose breakfast/meeting room serves a nice light breakfast and has extensive windows to take advantage of the view. The office staff is helpful and their recommendations for restaurants, wineries, etc. were consistently good.

This is really a great hotel for being in a small town in the middle of Washington. Huge room(s), and as my husband was here for business it was perfect for us - he could do his conference calls from one room and I was able to enjoy TV and the lake views from the main room without disturbing him.

We had a king-sized bed with loads of pillows, super comfortable and clean. Our room had great views, though we were right over the pool so if it was high season I expect the pool noise would be really bothersome if one was there hoping for quiet! Also disturbing the quiet was the housekeeping staff who shouted at each other while cleaning.

The hotel is also located about 5 minutes drive out of downtown Chelan, so walking to dinner/shopping will not be an option for most. Breakfast is in a beautiful room with friendly staff, but the fare was average - cereal, do-it-yourself waffles, yogurt, eggs, no sign of bacon or meats of any kind.

My husband had stayed there in 2008 and repeatedly remarked at how much improved the hotel is since then, they seem to be making an effort to remodel and upgrade the facility.

Very clean and convenient. We were in town for a large family event. Rooms were very comfortable, clean and the view was great! Suites give you pleanty of room to relax and allows the late sleepers to do so without being disturbed.

Usually stay at Campbell's Resort, but on a tighter budget this year so tried the Best Western b/c got a great room rate. More amenities at the Best Western with their indoor swimming pool, wireless internet, business center, work out room and just a nice walk into town to a Thai restaurant that we highly recommend on main street.
We'll be staying here everytime!! Quiet, lake view, 1/2 the high price of Campbell's for better stay. We're very pleased.

I stayed at the Lakeside Lodge as part of a group of 20-25. My suite, 303, was great. It had 2 queen beds with no less than 6 pillows each and some wonderful white bed linens in the first room. The second room contained the kitchenette (fridge, coffee maker, sink, minimal cups/plates/etc., and microwave; the bathroom and vanity areas; sitting and eating areas; and the sliding glass door to the balcony overlooking Lake Chelan. It was all very clean and comfortable. We ate several breakfasts and lunches in the conference room, plus one dinner, and all of it was tasty and healthful.
The front desk staff was very friendly and accomodating. When my sister and her 2 kids came to town the same day as me and wanted to get a room for the same reasonable rate that our group had, the kind man at the desk gave it to her and put her in the room directly above mine.
My stay at the Lakeside Lodge was very nice. I literally had no troubles.

We were in Chelan on vacation and checked into this hotel because my sister was staying there for a conference. Boy were we impressed. The "standard" room was actually a 2 bedroom suite! The beds were super comfortable and came with 6 pillows each that were just heavenly! The first night, due to a bad chest cold I ended up getting up and going into the other side of the suite so I wouldn't wake the rest of my family up with my coughing. There is a sofa bed there, but I didn't take the time to pull it out, instead just curled up on the couch with 2 of the pillows and an extra blanket I found in the drawers - and slept great there!

The deck is very nice, with a beautiful view of the park and the lake. The kids enjoyed the indoor pool and the hot tub.

The only bad things I can say is that the breakfast was not very good at all and there are no restaurants nearby - other than Subway. The waffles may as well been made out of cardboard and the hard boiled eggs were bad too. At least we had a fridge and a microwave in our room so we could get some of our own goodies.
