The hotel was just what we needed for our stay in Clearlake! Good price to lay our heads at night after a long day of visiting family in the area! Basic rooms with microwave and fridge but clean and tidy. We will stay here again!

The beds were twins and cheap, the room was good. It was a very very windy day and the WIFI went out for hours, but the weather was abnormally bad that day so I doubt that happens much. The rooms coffe pot isnt KEURIG as we brought our own and couldn't use it. Lots of places to get things if need close. Good Location. has a fridge, tiny microwave and they will give you more coffee. Because of the COVID lie that cause them not to change the sheets daily are still in place like any other hotel as they drop staff. Weed shop accross the street, good stuff, no refunds but very close to walk and get what you want. I would go back especailly on a nice summer day. No problems with people stealing from the car, small town vibe. I would go back especailly on a nice summer day.

I had hotel staff member enter my room while I was sleeping notifying me that check out time was 12:00 pm. Never mind I had a two night reservation. This place is a dump. Take your business elsewhere.
