"nice place"
the rooms were nice and simple. the staff were very nice and would help with whatever you needed. however because of the heat the algae bloom was in full swing and the beach and water was covered with mats of algae and the smell was pretty strong depending on the breeze. check the lake news for info about the conditions the algae bloom lasts about 6 -8 weeks. so just plan around that.

"Nice place, but NO phone or cell reception"
The cottage was beautiful! I loved being right by the lake. The thousands of mosquitoes made it challenging to spend much time by the lake. Housekeeping didn't come while I was there since they only clean every other day, but this wasn't a problem since it was just me. I came for some alone time, so I guess I shouldn't complain about no phone or cell reception but it would have been nice to have the option. Overall it was nice and I will come again.

"Very nice, but a motel, not hotel"
Excellent accommodations, right by the water although most units not actually on the water. No restaurant: this is a motel, which we had not fully realized. Very comfortable, clean. Staff very friendly. Would stay again if in the area.

The staff at Clear Lake Cottages was fabulous - super friendly and helpful! While our cottage was somewhat small, it was meticulously clean and had all the amenities we could want. The grounds/pool/lakefront areas were well kept and easily accessible to guests. Very quaint, homey atmoshphere. We will definitely stay there again!

"Clearlake Cottage"
I stayed one night. I found the cottage to be comfortable, clean, and modern. The grounds were very neat and sitting in the yard watching the lake was quite restful. My cottage was closest to the road, which meant I got some traffic noise, but it wasn't overwhelming. The staff, Nicky was her name, I believe, was more than helpful and quite nice. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

"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.

"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.

"Great!"
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.

"Lakeside cottages"
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.

"Nice lakeside property"
06/20/15 nilotpalr San Francisco, California
Used groupon for clear lake cottages and marina. I was lucky to get the best cottage in the property (No. 27: Queen Studio Cottage). Room was great, clean, trendy decor, comfortable bed with a private deck built over the water. Kitchen was fully equipped. Management was very helpful. They also provided us 2 hours free kayak rental. However, the town is extremely rundown ghetto. So, you are pretty much stuck inside the property. Swimming is not allowed. Therefore, apart from the kayaking, we could not do much! If you are looking for a lazy weekend, this is the perfect place for you. But, if you are looking for activities, you might get disappointed.

"Best of the ghetto that is Clearlake"
06/14/15 mattpequegnat Los Gatos, California
Best of the ghetto that is Clearlake, while that may seem harsh, this town is a dog, old dirty and rundown. Boarded up windows on main street and gang members in the water front park. And most of the hotels in Clearlake fit right in. The Clear Lake Cottages & Marina is at least newer, and clean looking (the floor in our room could have used a moping sometime in the last month). Thankfully the air conditioning worked well as it was a hot 102* and it kept the room cool. They have a pool that overlooks the lake with nice views, but if you can stay in the town of Lakeport on the other side of the lake, it is significantly nicer in every way.

"Very Comfortable cottage on the lake"
06/14/15 Josuccess Eugene, Oregon
I am so happy that I found the clear Lake Cottages & Marina. It make my trip so special. The staff were so helpful. The cottage was very comfortable with a sweet porch to sit on. The grounds were wonderful too. I enjoyed being right on the lake. Their swimming pool was a great addition. I was there for three days and enjoyed the pool each day. I slept well in their very comfortable bed.. It is my understanding that the new owners bought the resort a couple of years ago and refurbished it completely. They did an awesome job.. My sister who lives in the area visited me every day and got to enjoy it with me

"Refreshing visit, lovely surprise"
05/13/15 bnoehr Los Gatos, California
My daughter surprised me with a Mother's Day trip to a place I'd never been, Clearlake. She had researched to find a place that was pet friendly and she exceeded any expectation I had! This resort is clean, attractive and well appointed. The office staff were welcoming and personable. The room was attractive, clean, well appointed and very comfortable. The grounds were well maintained and inviting. We enjoyed a kayak ride but returned early because the waves were rough and we had our small terrier with us for his first water sport. All the recommendations made by the staff were excellent and we left happy and refreshed. We have no reservations about considering a return and would recommend this resort for anyone needing a quiet getaway in a lovely lakeside setting.

"Some good things, some odd things..."
03/31/15 X Y San Jose, California
On the plus side, the cottage we stayed in was spacious with a nice, large "kitchen" area. I'm using quote marks because...there was no sink! If you needed water for coffee or to rinse a dish or get a glass of water you had to use the bathroom sink. Ewwww! Other odd things were...no kleenex in the room, 1/4 roll of toilet paper and one completely empty roll (which made me wonder how thoroughly the bathroom had been cleaned?? And yes, we had to request more by Day 2), a tiny, narrow bathroom shelf that wasn't large enough to unpack your toiletries (and a tankless toilet, so you couldn't use the top of the tank since there wasn't one) and housekeeping only on alternate days. So if you were staying for more than one day (which we were), you had to REQUEST housekeeping if you wanted vacuuming (definitely needed as there is beachfront, and who isn't going to track in some sand?), dry towels, your bed made for you (hey...you're on vacation and paying $143/night for the cottage...of course you want someone to make your bed!). Strangest of all was that loose coffee was stored in little jars. Which meant the guests before and after you would be dipping into that same coffee. Very unsanitary and grossed us out. Guessing the Health Dept. would take a dim view of this! There’s also a fair bit of road noise that even closed windows couldn’t completely mask. On the plus side, there IS beachfront property, the grounds are immaculate, the place is fresh/clean, light and bright, most porches have lake views, large common grassy area for volleyball or lounging around. Oh…if you make a reservation and then later change or cancel it there is a $40.00 charge. REALLY?? Maybe instead of charging guests this ridiculous fee they should have a website where folks can make and cancel reservations without charging them. Would I stay there again? Not sure…some of the weird stuff was pretty odd and I’m not sure if the good things make up for the weirdness.

Pretty view over the lake. Nicki was super, super friendly and super dog friendly. We stayed in cottage 20 which is large, has a great view of the lake, and an enclosed deck which is great for a dog or a kid. As others have noted, the town of Clearlake has seen better days.

"Wonderful cabin right on the water"
09/20/14 SanFranciscoBonnie San Francisco
We just got back from a one night stay at Clear Lake Cottages & Marina (we would have like to stay longer but had time restraints). I booked it over the phone and the woman answering the phone was very cheerful and helpful. She assured me that we would be happy with our accommodations and they had the best facilities at Clear Lake. They have various size cabins most with views of the lake. She warned me because of the drought, there were no boat docks on the pier because of the low water level. She also told us we could fish off their pier and we didn't need a license since it was private property. The cabin (#27) was very large with kitchen and full view of the lake. Our family of 4 enjoyed the very clean room and even caught two fish right away. We would love to return when we have more time.
