"Family motel not a resort"
After staying here for a few days I understand why the reviews from other people are so varied. Far from being a 'resort' but rather a clean, friendly motel that's great for family's. Rooms are minimal comforts and furnishings very dated but adequate. The mid week, off season budget price I paid for the room was appropriate but if I had paid the full […] advertised rate I would not have been impressed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I had stayed here 30 years ago It is old, but iis kept up and very clean. It has a huge lawn area overlooking the lake which is very relaxing. The maid cleaned the rooms very good.. The office help were very nice and accommodating. I wiould go back again. It's not a 5 star hotel, but is nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a great place to stay, staff was friendly and very virtuous. We had a great morning view. I don't think it could have been any better than it was.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful resort right on the lake"
My daughter and I have stayed here twice now. We love the resort and the staff are so nice and very helpful. The grounds are gorgeous with plenty of shaded area's. The pool is clean and well kept. This resort is within walking distance of several restaurants and Library Park is close by too. Skylark Shores Resort is our preferred destination when we […] want to get away to Clear Lake and relax. We're already planning next years vacation! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautriful lake view but bad wifi"
Office staff was nice. Had a lake view room on 2nd floor. Beautiful view, but hard to enjoy patio seating since air vent is blowing hot air out of the room directly under patio table. Room was clean & spacious, had a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, beds were nice, mattress felt good but pillows were limp, toilet seat had some paint chipped off and […] the hinged looked old, shower is a stall with adequate space but not enough slots to put all my shower things (i.e. shampoo, conditioner, body scrub), had a tube tv (I did not have time to watch tv), had to carry ironing board and iron from office to my room (it's a small board that you have to use on a table), closet is an open closet, lots of bugs outside at night. Problems with wi-fi connection so it was hard to do business with no wi-fi. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"conveniently located near family"
The Skylark seems a bit rundown and in need of updating, refreshing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing for the price!"
It was a perfect visit! The staff was attentive and kind. I loves the grounds.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location and friendly staff. Our room was very clean and so were the towels.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Right on the Lake"
The location was great. Some rooms had amazing water views and it was right on the main street, so it was an easy walk to restaurants and coffee places. The hotel had its own boat dock so friends visiting from across the lake could tie right up to the resort for a visit. The swimming pool was small, but had some shade trees and was very enjoyable. Our […] room was quite without any road noise and the setting was lovely. The room furniture was also very nice, however the bathroom definitely needed a remodel and the mattress and bedding looked ancient. The staff was cheerful and helpful, and our room kept very clean. With a bathroom update and new bedding I would have given it a 5 out of 5 rating. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Smells like mildew. Neighbors had loud music. Units have paper-thin walls. We left 3 hours after checking in. Could not stand this place.Genuine Expedia guest review

"OK for the price"
Pool view side is like just a normal motel but lake view side looked really nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
The motel has some nice rooms facing the lake. If you don't reserve one of those, however, you are stuck in a dingy box facing the parking lot. Bathroom had some mold issues.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
fine and convenientGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice Hotel."
I won't stay anywhere else. The grounds are very well keeped, clean and beautiful, Great place to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Decent place, great property, and friendly staff."
Stayed 1 weekend in record hot temperatures (110+). The chilly pool was extremely refreshing in the heat, and the large grassy areas under towering oak trees was perfect for chilling out, throwing the frisbee, reading, or for stirring up the BBQ. Our cottage was basic in appearance and amenities, but had a full kitchen and private BBQ area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"What a great place!"
Went during the week and was upgraded to a cabin for no extra charge. We were able to save some money because of the kitchenette. The kids loved playing ping pong right outside the room. Swings, lake, horseshoe pit, picnic tables-what a nice trip!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
is a great location for people who want to fishGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great place, had no idea the area existed and would definitely stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was just fine, but I did not have a "room overlooking the pool." It is a single story motel with the pool on the other side of the parking lot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Up all night!"
Well let's start with the first thing. If you turn the sink on in the bathroom it sprays everywhere, and was almost impossible to turn off. Then if you want to take a shower the shower head was so low that you had to duck the entire time to get your head wet. I am 5'6", I don't know how my 6' tall husband did it! Okay, so we got back to our room after […] a long evening with friends and were looking forward to a good night sleep with our 2 kids, well as soon as we walked up to our door I knew we were in trouble! We were greeted by pot, cigarette smoke billowing out the door of our next door neighbors. The neighbors were doing some type of drugs, probably crank, all night long. got no sleep at all. they were on the porch out side, back inside all night long. It was too late to call anybody, as nobody answered at the front desk. We tried to drown out the noise with our fan, but then we were freezing as the only blankets we had were the super thin old gross blankets. I don't know if I would have slept regardless of the noise, as the coils from the cheap old mattress were poking through everywhere. Not to mention the pillow I had was as flat as a pancake.

"Fabulous lakeside location!"
We very much enjoyed our stay. We had an upper floor corner room right on the lake fronted by a lovely green lawn. We saw many birds, including endangered grebes. It was like being on a ship only better. Listened to the lapping of water on the shore all night, and awoke to a spectacular sunrise.The lodge does show its age, although even though there […] was some peeling paint everything was quite clean. The bathroom could have been a bit cleaner, and the towels were quite thin. Even though right on the water, the location is close to downtown cafes, bookstore, museum, library and restaurants--all without any noise! The one downside was that the next morning the asphalt company came to resurface the driveways and we were informed by phone that we had to move our car immediatley. We think we should have been notified of this the night before, as we were unable to even use the pool in the morning. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful & Relaxing"
I loved my short stay at the Skylark Shores Resort! The room was very spacious, and we had a balcony overlooking the lake, which made for a fantastic view. Behind the resort is a large lawn area, making it easy to sit outside and relax while watching the lake. I even walked out onto the boat docks to take some up-close pictures! Plus there's a nice […] beach for swimming right on the property, too! Aside from the resort's amenities, it's also within easy walking distance to several restaurants. We enjoyed good food (and great milkshakes!) while we were there! The resort is also right down the street from a nice big park with plenty of space for picnics and families. The worst I could say about the resort would be cleanliness. It wasn't dirty, but there were a fair amount of cobwebs and spiders and small flying bugs. Mostly it was the balcony area that needed a little upkeep. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK for a night or two"
Hotel is worn, but very clean with great staff. Convenient location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not all rooms are on the lake"
I mistakenly expected that my room would have a view of the lake. It is possible that the hotel description has been updated, because I was sure it said that rooms have lake views, and now it is clear that only some of them do. I came to Lakeport specifically to sit in a motel room with a view of the lake and get some work done on my laptop that I had […] been procrastinating. It would have been nice. The room I got, though it had no view, didn't have much that I can complain about. As motel rooms go, it had relatively fresh paint and was very clean. The furniture was fairly new. Everything worked. It wasn't too loud. The only downside, besides that it lacked a view, was that the wifi was terrible. My connection was strong but the bandwidth was extremely poor, so not great for getting work done or watching a movie. I am pretty sure that on this site it does tell you whether you are getting a poolside or a lakeside room, so if you care about that pay attention when you book.

"Great week end retreat"
The manager was very kind to exchange the room I had originally booked to a more quieter area of the premises. All the staff is extremely courteous and helpful. I will definitely stay there again!!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Greatest Scenery Ever"
This place was awesome. My husband, 2 teenage sons, and I often take weekend trips and this place was amazing. From the room we had, we could see the lake and I could see my kids fishing off the dock from my window. (yes, I'm overprotective) My husband and I had a million giggles playing ping pong and tetherball outside :) My kids had such a great time, […] they didn't even plug in their xbox which they brought without my knowledge. lol It was really clean but yes, there were some chips in the paint and you could see some wear. The beds were comfy and clean. The rooms were more spacious than I thought they'd be. (from other reviewer pictures) We had an upstairs room and I didn't hear any other guests once we were in our rooms and it was a completely sold out weekend. For the record, I'm no snob by any means but I wouldn't stay at a motel 6 type place either. We already have plans for a return trip here! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"OK for a one night visit....pricing reasonable."
Quiet clean hotel. On the lake. Weather permitting, it could have been a nice location to enjoy the sun and water.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Get a view room"
A little more attention to detail would be nice but the view was awesome and the room was large. The common view deck in the back wasn't great in terms of privacy. I would return.Genuine Expedia guest review
Close to Clear Lake.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Simple and clean. Pleasant staff. I would come back again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Decent "basic" motel. Probably better for boating/fishing people in summer as it's located on Clear Lake, Cal's biggest un-dammed lake. Next door to a terrific "down-home" breakfast place - Sanducci's.Genuine Expedia guest review
possibly the nicest hotel in Lakeport, but no more than a 3-star experienceGenuine Expedia guest review
"old. but. sweet"
It.was. fine. They up graded us to a suite. It is old. But clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lots of character in a great location."
Beautiful location. We were there off-season so it was very quiet. Room facing pool was good size for two. Bathroom counter space is very tight. We would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
it is a motel not a resortGenuine Hotels.com guest review
we stay every year and especially love the birding and sunrises. the only minor suggestion would be to update the lights. Not much light to read and the lamps totally fall apart when trying to adjust them. this light problem has been that way for years. I don't think you can do anything about the heavy doors that shake the room no matter what other […] occupant is closing them. we love the big rooms , grass lawn, privacy and closeness to town. we always eat at Park Place. will see you next year for sure.

We loved the homey feel of the hotel, the spaciousness of the cabin, and the friendliness of the staff. We will stay there again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"A nice stay on the West shore of Clear Lake"
A quiet, pleasant stop along the way between US 101 and I-5. We enjoyed the lake-side location as we needed to connect between the coast and I-5 on a long drive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cold water in the pool"
I called before reserving the room and they confirmed that the swimming pool is heated. However when we arrived the water was unacceptable cold. kids were shivering badly in 5min and didn't want to enter it anymore.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel for family or friends."
A beautiful location and they have kept it well groomed and open.Genuine Expedia guest review
The picture of the hotel on the web and the room that we requested were very mis leading... When we complained to the owner that we ordered a suite for five.. we got a room with two beds.... He said we havent had suites for 6 years..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice facilities for families"
We have stayed here before & enjoyed our stay. The description was misleading because the rooms do not have shower/tub nor do all rooms have patios! So, we were hoping to get a tub & patio, but, unfortunately got neither. We were told that if we wanted to request a specific room, we needed to book directly through them! But, we saved money by going […] through Expedia!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice older resort right on the lake."
This is your old-type lake resort hotel and the room was comfortable for our stay. Staff was very pleasant and helped us get a room away from the roadway. A/C worked very well and the room seemed quiet. Shower worked well. A little mildew smell in the room but this seem typical of older places. King bed was comfortable. The grounds are right on the […] lake with plenty of room so it made for a nice evening stroll. A popular spot for fishing and boating groups. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very nice,owner was on site.Had our local family visit us and use the pool. Just a few blocks from down town. . Downtown very quaint lots of stores to visit and loads of places to eat at good prices.FrankGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Funky and Friendly place to unwind"
Cute place located right on the lake. I liked the overall vibe of the place. Funky and friendly place for relaxing with the family. Staff all greeted me with a smile. Other guests lounged around the place with no appearance of any stress or concern. Some played horseshoes, while others sat and visited over a beer. I walked the town and found it to be […] pretty laid back. If you are looking for a simple, slower paced experience without all the trappings of a normal CA five star resort this may be exactly what you need after a busy day. I am already planning a return stay with my wife before the end of the year. As long as your expectations don't include a turn down service with chocolates on the pillows you should feel pretty comfortable staying here. I did. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
right on the water, quiet, affordable, close to downtown Lakeport. good place to fish or watch the birds. the staff was helpful and cheerful, even when the hotel filled up with firefighters.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Basic hotel with no frills"
Stayed overnight on business. It was an older establishment and showed its age, but was simple and clean inside the room. No frills, but the pool seemed popular. Sheets were clean and white, while towels were a little off white, but still clean. Refrigerator and microwave in room, but be sure to turn down the fridge temperature if you intend to use […] it. Bed was quite firm, which I considered a plus. Quiet overnight and I did not hear my neihbors. Television had just basic channels, but they offered free wi-fi in all rooms. Staff were courteous and helpful. Wi-fi was a little slow and dropped off once, but shortly restored. It is a small town with several options and this one probably rates somewhere in the middle. I would stay again if and when I need to return. Google Jimmy's deli on Lakport for lunch - It was recommended by a local and had suprisingly good sandwiches! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
