Nice old fashioned hotel on the lake.

Posted Oct 20, 2017
Pros: View of lake.
Cons: Better breakfasts and build decks off of rooms facing lake.
Location: boating right there.
Old but updates have been done in the rooms. Staff are wonderful. If I was going up that way again, I would stay there for sure!

Cute little hotel on Blue Lakes. Clean comfy rooms. Way cooler then the valley in the evening. Watching the fish jump in the morning was fun! I was a little confused about continental breakfast. We never found it, but that didn't ruin our visit. I will go back.

Thanks for taking the time to post a review! And we love hearing that guests were able to appreciate the lake and all its natural wonders. We are so sorry you did not get to enjoy our breakfast, which is located in our Convention Center on the far end of the lodge. We will definitely pass on your comments to our front desk staff to make sure this does not happen to another guest.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review! We love the fact that we have the opportunity to introduce guests to the beautiful serenity of Blue Lakes at our historic lodge. We apologize that our expanded continental breakfast did not live up to your expectations in terms of options. We definitely adjust our menu seasonally, so we hope you give us another chance to host and feed you!

Overbooked

Posted Jul 10, 2017
Pros: The water
Cons: Have our room available.
Reserved a kitchenette and attaching double room. Arrived to find out that 1) kitchenettes and double rooms aren't attached. 2) NO KITCHENETTE WAS AVAILABLE!!! 3) It took them 2 hours to get us into the room they did have for us. Luckily we could squeeze all of us in the double room or we would have had NO VACATION! The staff offered no discount and acted like it was our fault by booking through Expedia! If this is how they treat repeat customers imagine how you will be treated!

Dear Dee, We apologize for the confusion and not being able to resolve your dispute to your satisfaction. As you were advised at check-in, we do not offer adjoining kitchenettes and mountainside double rooms. We are not sure how that information was communicated to you, but apologize again for the misinformation. In checking all 3rd party websites, we could not find anything communicating adjoining rooms. In speaking with the front desk, we were advised that you refused the kitchenette room when you were informed the two rooms were not adjoining. The 7-day cancellation fee was waived for that room and you were reimbursed in full once the front desk was able to resell that room to another guest. The front desk also advised us that the mountainside double room you ended up staying in was available when you arrived and you were checked in immediately. Apologies again for the confusion.

Gorgeous location!

Posted May 21, 2017
Pros: Location!
Cons: housekeeping services and alternative for breakfast
This is in a gorgeous location by Blue Lakes in Northern California, just picturesque. The room was lovely and very clean and updated. Just a couple of things that surprised us. The continental breakfast was not set up somewhere where you could go in and serve yourself and the times they supposed to bring it to the room were later than we had to head out. I suppose if you planned to stay on location that would have worked but we never had the opportunity to try the breakfast. We stayed for 3 nights and were surprised that the bed was never made up. I didn't expect them to strip the bed, just make it up. Anywhere else we have stayed for more than one day they have always provided this service. They did leave fresh towels and coffee for us. Lastly, the second night we stayed we had loud, obnoxious neighbors talking very loudly outside our door at about midnight.

Dear Stephanie, Thanks for the informative review. Although we're happy to hear you enjoyed the beautiful lake location and appreciated the cleanliness and look of our rooms, we absolutely apologize for your room not being made up each day. We offer daily cleaning services, and your room should have been freshened up accordingly. We're also sorry to hear you didn't have a chance to enjoy our expanded continental breakfast. Next time you plan on visiting the area, please feel free to give us a call and reference this review. We will happily handle all your requests personally and make sure you enjoy your stay to the fullest!

Simple but comfortable in beautiful location

Lovely location on the lake. "Mountainside" rooms means roadside and there's some traffic noise but not too bad. Lakeside rooms are wonderfully located. Excellent bed. Very friendly. Simple but adequate breakfast.
