"Clean, pleasant gem"
Nice place adjacent to Clear Lake. Exceptionally friendly staff. Cottages seemed almost new. Pool was clean (up to 8' deep, so be careful of little ones). Due to drought, lake levels made boat ramp/marina unusable, but the staff warned us of this beforehand. Wifi was actually fast (most hotel wifi is slow).Town of Clearlake has probably seen better […] days, so don't expect a lot nearby (one restaurant seemed okay, but we didn't have time to visit). Would definitely stay again when we return to Lake County. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place for an annual get-away."
I was delighted with my stay at Clear Lake Cottages. The staff was friendly. The cottage was well-appointed, clean and comfortable. The grounds were well maintained. The pool and deck were clean. The deck furniture was in good condition. I had been expecting the cottages to be on a bluff with a view of the lake but was pleased to discover that the cottages […] were right at lake level. My stay was during the week and the lake was totally peaceful; I can't testify to how it would be on weekends. Had I stayed longer I would have rented a kayak.

"Clear Lake Cottages & Marina"
The Clear Lake Marina cottages are located in a beautiful spot right on the edge of Clear Lake. Although the town itself is pretty shabby and run down the cottages are nice and well appointed. Our only problem is that we didn't have hot water on the first day of our stay and the dishwasher inside the cottage did not work. Also, they only have housekeeping […] services every other day and so the rooms can get a little messy or dirty if there are 3-4 people staying. It would be nice to have daily housekeeping service especially for the price that you pay. The cottage was priced at $200/night in the off-season so it isn't exactly cheap. The drive around the Lake from the South to the North along Hwy 20 is very nice. There are some scenic vistas along the way although the towns along the way looked pretty poor and undeveloped. It was hard to find a decent restaurant. The staff at the cottages were nice and friendly. They let us borrow a DVD player since we had a couple of DVDs that we had brought to watch over the weekend. It is a quiet and peaceful location, good for fishing but not much else. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great place to stay"
Quiet relaxing location right on Lake Clear, spotlessly clean cottage, comfy bed and very friendly staff. Cathy the manager was exceptional and provided us with plates, cutlery and glasses so we could BBQ instead of eating out.

"tight boat launch ramp."
we'll go back in spite of the boat launch ramp.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very friendly front desk girl, very helpful too. The most upscale facility in the entire town (granted there's not much to the town...) The only thing is that the hotel is in the location where it smells kind of funky because of the algae, but that's not the hotel it's the town, so other parts of the town is even worse. But once you're in the hotel […] room you don't smell it at all. Other than that the room was great and they even had a cute little hotel goose walking around. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The only issue with the hotel was that the rooms are cleaned only every other day for guests staying more than one day. This is unusual and given the price, not very satisfactory. The other problem was with the lake, not the hotel. There was no possibility of swimming due to an infestation of green, foul-smelling algae, which seemed to be along most […] of the lake coastline. The cause is probably fertilizer in agricultural run-off. This infestation would not encourage us to make a return visit to Clear Lake. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed our stay at clear lake cottages. The room was especially clean and has been recently updated. The only thing we would have liked is a comfortable sitting chair instead of just table w/ side chairs. We would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Really? No phones in room - OR hairdryers?"
Yes, we checked in late (7:00 pm) - but the office was closed and our key hung on the door. Apparently we missed the "briefing" that our room would not receive ANY housekeeping services until AFTER we checked out from our two day stay. W H A T ? Uh-huh. We left for the day and came back to our wet towels (oh yeah, the water doesn't get hot either - […] warm only for that shower) and unmade beds. So, why so much money for the first night? I don't get it. When I checked out on day three of our two night stay, the desk clerk/owner was nonchalant. She informed me that the hairdryers were kept in the office...yeah, that's what I want to do...pad over to a CLOSED office with wet hair in cold weather. Office doesn't open until 9:00 am...unless you call them...from your OWN phone... In fairness to them, the room/cottage was big, and the beds comfortable. But really, no soap in the bathroom? You have to go back out into the main room where the sinks are to get soap for the shower...sure hope YOUR blinds are closed...aaack! A lot of money for inferior service, to say the least.

We planned a last minute getaway over Labor Day and were pleasantly surprised at this great little place! We had never stayed in Clearlake before and were not sure of what to expect. The property is very well maintained and our cottage (#25) was super clean and had everything we needed. There was even an adorable welcome gift, bed and bowls for our dog when we arrived! The pool area was nice as well as were the picnic and bbq areas available to grill on and relax by the lake. There was a fire pit you can sit by as well as a nice grassy area to either relax in the sun or under the shade tree. They do have resident geese that leave behind poop on the lawn area but that didn't really bother us. The marina and launch were great, but unfortunately closed due to low water levels because of the drought. We will be back for sure when the water is higher and bring our jet ski with us. Also, a huge thank you to Cherie, Jessica & Nicci for the awesome information, suggestions and customer service they gave us! We will definitely be back!

My husband and I recently stayed here. The resort was great! The rooms are adorable and very clean and comfy. Each cottage has a porch that we used for relaxing. We stayed in 11 that was closest to the road but still had a view of the lake. It did get a little noisy. The pool was great and very clean. We relaxed by the resort's fire and grassy area a lot. If the marina would've been open it would've been perfect to dock our jet ski. Of course because of the drought and low water levels at the resort we had to use the marina about a mile down the road. We brought two big dogs that were welcomed with beds, treats, towels, bowls, and toys!!! The service was excellent. We needed dishes one night and they brought us an adorable basket full of kitchen ware. Now the surrounding area and town were not so nice. It was very run down and depressing looking. The lake had beautiful views but I wouldn't swim it in. Overall I enjoyed my time here and was impressed with the resort!!!

We were originally taken aback as the price here is a little higher than some of the neighbours. However, I'm glad we spent the extra. Our cabin was very quaint and clean. The pool was well maintained and had a selection of pool toys for younger travellers. The lady that checked us in was very friendly and helpful. The view of Clear Lake is magnificent. Overall, this is a very well maintained facility. At check-in, we were given a coupon for the Main St Bar & Grill that is about a 15 minute walk away. At first, this placed seemed like a bit of a 'dive' but the food and drink turned out to be a very nice surprise.

This beautiful resort is a standout in Clearlake. Great boat storage, super clean facilities, lovely landscaping,- with an open view of the lake. Pet Friendly welcome made our stay enjoyable and we look forward to returning.
"What a nice place"
06/22/14 jdtOregon oregon
We just stayed one night at the Clear Lake Cottages and Marina, and really enjoyed it. The cottages are really nice, clean and comfy. The staff is friendly and helpful. We were a bit worried when driving through Clearlake, as there are some really run down cottages/cabins for rent, and were delighted when we drove into this resort. We only stayed one night, but it would be really fun to stay for an extended time. Lots of people fishing, boating and relaxing. It's easy to meet neighbors at the cottages, and everyone we met were really nice. We enjoyed sitting on our cute little deck overlooking the lake sipping wine we bought on our trip to Napa! Only downside was that the lake is a bit low, and we couldn't launch our boat there because of the shallow water, but when water is up, a great place to have a boat!
"WOW! Beautiful, Cozy, Romantic!"
06/08/14 LearyTraveler Oroville, California
I was so thrilled when we pulled up the the Clear Lake Cottages and Marina. You could tell right away just from the sign and the landscaping that this was going to be a nice place to stay. I was not disappointed! Walking into the lobby the lady in the front office was extremely friendly. She advised us on different places to eat and gave us a 10% off coupon for a restaurant down the street. It didnt take us long at all to get checked in. Our cabin was cabin #13 which was a couple of cabins away from the street and a few cabins away from the lake. Honestly I dont think it matters much where your cabin is because the ease of access to the lake and the pier area are really easy and short. The cabins are extremely well taken care of and you can tell have recently been remodeled. They are VERY clean! When you open the door you are greeted to an air conditioned room, while it is definitely "cozy" it was plenty big enough for what we needed it for. It has a bathroom with a shower and tub combo, and a small pantry area with a coffee pot, and a microwave and a fridge. The bed was outstanding!! I have never slept comfortably on a hotel bed before and the bed and pillows were amazing. The bathroom is extremely clean and has a tub/shower combo. The water pressure is awesome, and the bath towels are extremely fluffy and comfy!! Sometimes hotels will skimp in that area. These towels are large and very nice. The beach was very easily accessible. The water was pretty shallow and rocky, and the algae was pretty bad. I don't think I would have wanted to swim in the water in this area. However they DO have a pool that I didn't have a chance to check out but it looked beautiful! We also quite liked the pier area. It was beautifully maintained and had chairs out on the grassy area so you could sit and have a drink or some food and watch the sunset or just chill out and watch the lake. I will definitely come here again and stay here again. It was so romantic and quiet, and the people were very nice as well.
"Cute cottages right on the water"
05/13/14 tg94901 San Rafael, CA
As we drove thru the run-down town of Clear Lake (and having passed several grungy, sad cottage places), we were wondering what we got ourselves into with a stay at the Clear Lake Cottages. Imagine our delight and surprise wehn we pulled into an immaculate and landscaped parking lot for the Clear Lake Cottages! The place is a jewel, the staff very accommodating and the water views soothing. Our room (#16) was steps from the water. It was very spacious and clean, and the bed was comfy. I took one star off because the pool has solar heating that didn't seem to do much (way too cold for ME), and there is no jacuzzi. Also, the tv in our room was miles away from the bed --- hard for us to watch in comfort. But those are minor details and I will definitely return when we want a relaxing get-away.
"We're back & still love this place"
05/12/14 TheBlum Novato, California
Hey, if you are coming to Clearlake to find things to do, places to go and excitement, get over it. This is not the destination for you. Why do my wife and I love this place? In part is because we love Cottage #27 right on the water. In part it is because this is a sleepy little town and that means it is more quiet than the some of the other more frequented area towns. If you want peace and quiet and good accommodations at a fair price and a place to enjoy peace and quiet, this is it.
"Groupon deal visit"
This place caught my attention on a Groupon deal, so we tried it out with our family. Our cottage was beautifully facing the lake view, was clean, and staff very friendly. This was intended to be a first-time fishing trip for our little ones. Unfortunately, the famous fishing lake produced no fish on our trip (due to our novice fishing). We stayed at the resort the entire two days as there is nothing to do or see in town. There was no foul smell of algae on our visit, but the lawn area was full of dog poop which no one seems to care about. Sad to say, but this will be our one & only trip to Clear Lake. Very disappointing.....
"Very pleasantly surprised!"
04/07/14 MarilynnBowers Richmond, Texas
I haven't lived in Clearlake since 1994 and I was dreading staying in the city. When visiting we had usually stayed in Santa Rosa. This time a family emergency brought me home and I needed to be close. I searched online and asked some local friends. This was the only place recommended and I was so pleased. The cottage (19) was very clean. VERY CLEAN! It was quiet and peaceful and safe. The bed was super comfy and the staff was great. I will definitely be staying there in the future!
