This was a wonderful place just to relax and hang out on the lake. Customer service was phenomenal. The jacuzzi tub was very nice! Rooms are small but your out on the lake our hanging out on the grass so it's not a big deal. We can't wait to go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The lodge is located next to a beautiful lake, and having the dock available for fishing, swimming or boating is a nice feature. It was a quiet place and offered good, basic accommodations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic in every aspect of service and location."
This was the highlight of our stay in Clearlake. I would recommend this Lodge to anyone who likes to fish and stay right on the lake. You can't find a better place or more friendly people than you will find at this Lodge. I can't wait to return, which will be real soon. Floyd & Monique'''''''''''''Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel under renovation kinda"
I was quite pleased with my accommodations. Stayed for a business trip and found it was a little far away from where I needed to be, but then again, I liked it. Hotel staff was incredibly nice. My room was on the mountainside so no great view of the lake. I noticed that they were renovating some rooms and it looked promising.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Lake View; must Kayak"
I loved it; I am a return customer, having stayed there at least 5 times. All the rooms I have been in have been nice. I love the free Kayak rental that is included in your overnight stay. The lake is quiet and one can see many birds. The service has been friendly and welcoming.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to town but a true GETAWAY location!"
This resort hotel sits on a beautiful clean lake called Blue Lake. The owners have taken this 1950's hotel and done some amazing upgrades. The decor, comfortable beds, bathroom, are all tastefully decorated with nice subtle upgrades. The robes in the room are a classy touch. There is a grassy area in front of the rooms with lounge chairs and chairs […] with tables on the patio walkway. The included breakfast of scrambled eggs, pastries, apples, and orange juice was delivered to our room promptly at 9 am. There are multiple docks with water toys and water crafts for rent. Our night included a one hour kayak rental which we enjoyed; seeing an eagles nest and soaking in the beauty of the lake. The lake water was a little chilly but so crystal clean and the swimming platform so inviting we could not resist. The pool was not ready for the season but was not missed. The stars at night are incredible! This is a lovely place to enjoy a beautiful view and lake. Tiffany was a pleasure and very helpful. We will be back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Relaxing, quiet lakeside inn, wonderful staff"
Clean, comfortable inn on quiet lake with maximum speed of 5 mp. Warm and wonderful staff that went out of their way to make our stay special. especially the manager Tiffany who even helped us load a canoe atop a Honda Civic. Fresh cooked breakfast in bed, free docking facilities, in room kitchenette if you need it (we didn't), barbeque equipped patio, […] pool, functional if slow wireless, convenient for day hikes, it had everything we could have wished for.

"Great Romantic Getaway"
While most look at a one story lodge more like a motel its not. We stayed in a Jacuzzi King room which was clean and nice. No closet, but no space for a closet instead we had a Jacuzzi bath. Wonderful staff and a nice hot breakfast was included, plus a one hour kayak ride per day on the lake. We will go back and stay again. Up the street to Upper Lake […] downtown excellent restaurant the Blue Wing too. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful rooms and property"
Beautiful location, friendly staff. Hardwood floors, although gorgeous, are quite noisy. Woke my daughter and I up when my husband got up to use the restroom. Comfy beds. Our room was right by the event center. We heard a bunch of loud thumping, when I asked the front desk woman about it in the morning, she told me that it was her and her family, the […] kids where running around, this was at 10:30 pm. So that was kind of annoying. One hour free kayaking is awesome too. Would definitely go back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gorgeous lake view room"
We really enjoyed our stay. We upgraded to a lake view room and it had a beautiful view. We loved that we could fix our own dinner on the big barbecue grills. The Lodge is so clean and well kept.

"Nice little getaway"
The Lodge at Blue Lakes was a hidden gem. When I came around back to the lakeside, it was breathe taking. Gorgeous! I would say our only complaint would be the beds, ours were the memory foam type. We had never slept on this type of mattress before, I think it takes a bit getting used to. Other than that, everything was clean...service was great. I […] would still stay again, even though the mattress was not to our liking. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great place to stay"
we enjoyed to have the view on the lake , the ducks were gliding around the waters, the lake is really clean here , we could see red crawfishes near the shore ! and the weather was really nice. The staff was really helpful and seem to be happy to work there. Breakfast was made with great taste and fresh.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good place for quick get away weekend"
Located on a pretty lake surrounded by close-in forested hills, the lodge is a bit old but work is in progress toward a high overall quality. Was probably allowed to deteriorate over several decades, but new management has been working over the past decade to bring it back and improve it. Beds were a bit uncomfortable, but service was friendly, helpful, […] and prompt. The breakfast is limited but adequate, and better than many hotels since it offered nicely prepared eggs, fresh fruit, and no pastries. Is close to Upper Clear Lake for small town shopping and dining, and close to many trail heads for hiking and docks for swimming and boating. Will return again. REAsonably priced.

We went to Blue Lakes to swim, kayak, go boating and rest which we did. But the experience at the lodge was tremendous. It's a family run business and they did an excellent job at making us feel welcome while continually providing over the top service. We'll come again for sure!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"What you see is NOT what you get!"
Of course, we must give the positive input first. The setting is beautiful...Gods gift. Staff was pleasant and attempted to accommodate, clean (and fairly quiet)...HOWever....credit card was already charged upon arrival (plan for us was to split the cost) Misrepresented "Lakeside Room" Beds were on the "Mountainside" If you want a lakeVIEW room, request […] "Waterfront Room" and pay $40 more per night. Throw rugs (useless) bunched up under suitcases upon entrance, only one luggage holder, painters tape still on light fixture in bath, toiletpaper roll was installed 8" from floor, coffee pot did not work properly, pictures/mirror were not properly hung, no working ice machines, had to go to office for ice and then received ONE sandwich baggie of hard ice, phone did not work (was replaced following day), lawn overly watered causing mud, doors hard to lock/unlock. Facility is lit up like a stadium all night long. "Breakfast" items were mostly gone when we arrived (at 9:30am). There are more reasons to stay at perhaps Pine Acres, across the lake which has cabins/cottages and camping facilities. The owners of the Lodge have done a makeover, and yes, it is nicer than a few years ago when we stayed there, but this was more an "attempt" to make a "purse out of a sows ear" if you ask me.... Also, if you plan to be on the water, the wind is very high in the afternoon and evening. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Hotel was great, beautiful location right on the lake. Could walk out my room and jump in the lake. No restaurants nearby, so bring food with you. Staff was great, dog friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Under different circumstances"
The room was charming, but there were challenges. I strongly recommend the following: 1 Get a room facing the lake because the street side was extremely loud. The water made high pitched sounds all night. When I mentioned this to the hotel receptionist, she apologized but did'nt offer to have manager speak to me. She said they were doing construction […] near my room. So I would ask questions. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The room was small but clean and as advertized though one of the two full sized beds was not comfortable. The space was recently renovated and was attractive. We were disappointed in the noise. We had some exuberant people staying next to us and the sound carried through the wall much more than I've experienced in other lodges. This interfered with […] sleep. The hot water ran out before a single person finished her shower each day we were there. There was no maid service which isn't all that big a deal since I prefer to keep my room tidy without having other people come into my space, but this might be a factor for someone else. There was a continental breakfast which was served between 9 AM and 10:30 AM. This means we were long gone to engage in our activities before they started serving, so this wasn't really available for us. Would not likely stay there again.

"Our stay on 06/15/13"
We chose this for views and location to be as close to the lake as possible . The rooms are small. You can really enjoy this location with a party if few friends and do lakeside activities. Nice basket of breakfast is served in the room. Relax and quiet stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A hidden gem on blue lake. Excellent accommodations, view and staff, Great location for all amenities that lake county has to offer.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was very uncomfortable. The beds were metal and squeaked all night. The hot water in the bathroom would start some noise in the walls. Then they charged additional $20 for each child. Generally the room was not clean and I got a kick of the worst allergies. However, the owners are nice people and I hate to write a bad review but this is what […] it is.

"Roadside Motel - Lake to one side"
Its an older property, but well-maintained. Website cleverly makes it seem like a remote location, but its literally right on the edge of Highway 20. "Mountain View" rooms are "Highway View" rooms, so ask for "Lakeside View" rooms unless you like highway noise. Bed comfort was basic - they could use better pillows (bring your own). Staff were attentive […] and kind. Outdoor buffet breakfast was great. Overall, a decent stop in a hit or miss area of Highway 20. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hôtel rustique proche d' un petit lac"
L' hôtel n' est pas au bord de Clear Lake mais au bord d' un petit lac de montagne plutôt joli. La chambre offre un très grand lit et un jacuzzi mais peu de place pour poser et ranger ses affaires. La nuit on entend un peu les camions sur la route et la climatisation des voisins. Il y a une piscine et des chaises longues au bord du lac.

"Five Star Destination With Rural Setting"
07/23/14 nicknmary Lakeport, California
Absolutely beautiful picturesque postcard setting with lake & evergreen mountain backdrop. Amazing hosts with accommodating, professional wait staff. First class service. Wonderful event center for wedding, party, family gathering, BBQ, etc. Boating, swimming, fishing on lake right out your room. Perfectly maintained. Rooms have that country charm, but are impeccable. Full breakfast & kayak included. Maryann & Peter are the most gracious of owners and are always available to facilitate any need. Very nice people to work with. (Daughter's wedding).
07/03/14 MichaelandP San Francisco, California
We were very happy with our lake view room. The accommodations were clean, and the service was what made it so nice. The owners Peter and Maryanne are constantly working and cleaning so the place reflects their vigilant attention. I have a few complaints about some of the uncaring guests and day users, but there isn't any control over irresponsible dog owners, and many of the inconsiderate smokers. The lake is clear and beautiful. Can only imagine what it was like 20 years ago with less traffic on the road and less people. Will certainly go back again. The gals in the office.......you really made our stay enjoyable!
06/27/14 rosabluecat Northern California
The sky and lake were blue the day we stayed and the weather a perfect summer morning. We were happy to watch the ducks and appreciated the graciousness of Peter the owner and the seemingly happy gals who work here. It's over-priced, however, for the oldish but nicely decorated 40's size vacation lodging even if the back door at the kitchenette leads directly to the lawn and lake with lounge chairs under swaying tree limbs. Highway 20 is noisy, trucks use it. My husband said he doesn't understand why tress weren't planted years ago to act as a large screen and noise buffer. The room is clean, though as stated before, no rom for an easy chair or closet, just a rack with about 5 hangers. However, there ARE complimentary bathrobes on two of those, which I totally appreciated even though it left only three hangers for us. Breakfast is a bit better than the generic franchise way of places like Best Western. Why? Because there was watermelon for one thing. There were sort of ok scrambled eggs, packaged cereal, as in the usual chains with the look of being in the box too long and just duly shoveled out, bagels, white and whole wheat bread, cream cheese and jam in little packets. However, there was actual butter and 1/2 and 1/2 for coffee in those teeny containers that normally offer up an array of chemical milk "product" so that's an improvement. Att least there wasn't the constant blare of a TV in the breakfast room but amazingly enough, a large deck with quite a few tables looking over a, yes blue, lake. There is a decent upkeep to the place and the beauty of the lake I guess is why one pays for what would normally be a room of 1/3 to 1/2 of the price and the generic breakfast.
"Beautiful Relaxing Awesome"

The only bad thing I can say is I wish we would have found thhis gem sooner! Hidden on hwy 20 in upper clear lake, Relaxing, quite, peaceful, and beautiful location, the room is clean the service is always smiling(Tiffany your an awesome young lady) free breakfast was great, we rented a electric boat and spent some time on the lake. Awesome weekend! Thank you to the Schmid's for a wonderful and relaxing weekend!

The owners, Mary Anne and Peter, were wonderful hosts. Leilani and I will most assuredly be back as we have every year. The lake here is beautiful and so are the boat rides. The resort is pet friendly and places to eat are everywhere.
"Blue lakes - indeed - and a pleasant stay at the Lodge - very satisfied."
06/03/14 Chris N
This is still a family driven hotel: Maryanne and Peter are so kind and helpful. We felt like friends right from the beginning of our stay. Our room was waterfront and we enjoyed a beautiful view over the lake. Room was very clean and bright. The hotel has its own lake access. There is no beach but you can get into the lake for swimming with no problems. The lake water is clean and fresh, you can hire boats (5 mph limited electric or kayaks) directly at the hotel's office to take beautiful slow trips around the really blue lake. The hotel is not to big - about 20 rooms. Our room was clean and bright, the queen bed very comfy, new FlatTV, new fridge. The water in the shower came evenly out of its head. Our room neighbors tended to use the air conditioning from time to time which was a little bit loud during night time - but we got used to it. The hotel has a pool which is not heated - but we did not use it anyway because swimming in the lake is much better. There is free to use barbeque equipment all around. The FREE breakfast was substantial and pretty much on European standard - warm and cold food, coffee, tea, orange juice, milk. All fresh! Also a pleasure was laying on the lawn immediately in front of our room and close to the lake. During daytime you can slightly hear the cars from a frequently used road - but during night time it gets quiet. Maryanne and Peter who own the hotel are very friendly, helpful and just nice people. We didn't use it :-) but this place must be great for company events, weddings or family celebrations. There is a little store close by where you can find a large variety of snacks, beverages and some grocery. The area (Lake County) is wonderful green and the air quality is unbeatable. There is a very good place to eat, or have a coffee at Upper Lake which is about 10 miles from the hotel: the saloon in the middle of the town - take a look at the sculptures in the beer garden. We've been so happy at our stay and will come back to Lake County and Lodge at Blue Lakes for sure.
"Great anniversary spot with the kids & dog"
04/29/14 Katherine D Mendocino, California
We had a great time here celebrating our 7th anniversary with our 4 & 2 year olds & 6 month old jack russell. The room was spotless & the one we were given was on the end, so slightly more roomy than others. Our room had 2 queens which was much appreciated, full beds with restless sleepers are no fun. The lawn outside the room was lush and the docks were great for fishing. We took one of the electric boats out, it only took an hour to tour the whole lake. The boat rental was a little pricey ($75 for an hour), but they refunded our money as we had paid for 2 hours but were only out one. I did not know that breakfast was included so that was a nice surprise & tasty too! They cut up the melon in smaller pieces for my youngest & included child sized forks! I liked the reasonableness of the dog fee ($25) as ours slept in the car. The owners have really found a gem of an employee in Tiffany; she was friendly, happy and helpful. She even called us to let us know we left a dog ball! I know we will come back here!
04/20/14 XwayA Leander, Texas
They call this a "resort:" and tout the Porsche Club visiting, which makes it sound like a luxury resort. All the photos are taken at angles that make things look expansive, and they cut out the RV park directly across from them on the lake side. The inn sits at the end of the lake on the tiny connector between two lakes, so the view is of other properties' docks and the RV park. The lake itself is tiny and sits off to the right of this inn. Best view is from the event center where the breakfast is served, but they had deck there taped off with yellow hazard tape so you could not use it. They at least did not overhype the breakfast which they said was continental, but it is all packaged stuff like you would pick up at a gas station not nice pastries, bagels, etc like from a bakery. Scrambled eggs were like Styrofoam with no real flavor so probably from carton not fresh. Rooms are small and all side by side so you have no privacy from the other guests. Poor soundproofing as you can hear tv and kids through the walls. Availability of boats for rent was a positive, though quite expensive. The room rental rate was also very high for the area, so my husband said "this was an extort, not a resort!" On the positive side, the room was very clean and amenities there were very good. Coffee maker worked fine and the bed was comfy. So all in all, the place is just ordinary.
"Relaxing lakeside inn with wonderful staff"

Quiet, clean comfortable inn on lake with 5 mp limit, free docking facilities, warm, wonderful staff that went out of their way to make our stay special, fresh-cooked breakfast in bed, barbeque-equipped patio, functional wireless, in-room kitchenette if needed (we didn't). dog-friendly, convenient for day-hikes, everything we could have wished for.
"One of the Best!"

Thr rooms are nicely decorated and the view of the lake is spectacular. The cost is reasonable and the staff makes you feel at home with their friendy greeting and helpful manner. A boat ride on the lake is a must.The breakfast was teriffic. This is the fourth time we've stayed, two on our own and two with a group...the Porsche Club! Owners Peter and Maryann are ther best!
