"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. We had a great time and highly recommend it toanyone looking for a quiet getaway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"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.

"Great little cottages"
We chose this place as it was convenient to where we were spending the day, And it was by far the nicest looking place around. The cottages appear to be recently renovated, have decent coffee and coffee makers, big TV's and soft rugs and towels. But the neighborhood itself is quite low-rent.Genuine Expedia guest review
these cottages were very nice but they are located on the lower end of clear lake and the rotting algae is a huge problem there!!! The horrible smell makes one gag. we had to leave the area or stay inside. we asked for our money back but they said that was not an option. we will never stay at clear lake again and we will tell everyone we know about […] the horrible smell. yuk.

"Clear Lake stench"
My wife and I made this reservation in celebration of her birthday. We were looking forward to a quiet, peaceful stay complete with picturesque waterfront. However, as soon as we got near the lake, our senses were assaulted by the 'raw sewage' smell. Later, while sequestered in our room away from the smell, we went online to find that this is the norm, […] particularly at certain times of the year. If we so much as opened our door a crack, the horrid smell would invade our room. Consequently we chose not to patronize the local restaurants, but prepared our own snacks in the room. At checkout time, we packed up and were gone. Had I know about the smell, I would not have booked here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very nice facility appears to be family run. Very friendly and accommoding host. Individual newish cabins front lake, some with views. Small yard juts out into lake about 50 yds. Great place to enjoy sunset view and lake breezes. Could have used a few more chairs. The three available were always occupied morning, noon or twilight. Flanks dock and put-in […] but still very quiet during our stay. Three small but clean bbq grills with picnic tables nice feature. Small clean pool, clean pay laundry facility, small working fridge in unit. Beware: lake algae this time of year makes swimming undesireable and somewhat odoriferous. We drove around entire lake and everbody along shoreline appeared to be equally affected regardless of winds. Probably seasonal due to high temps. into 90's. Nonetheless, we enjoyed our stay very much. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"CLEAR LAKE COTTAGES & MARINA"
JUST A GREAT PLACE TO STAY. SAFEWAY & GROCERY OUTLET NEAR BY ALSO A THEATER . PEOPLE REALLY CATCHING AT THE COTTAGE PIER. PEOPLE IN THE TOWN WERE VERY NICE MANAGEMENT WAS VERY HELPFUL AND NICE JUST A GREAT PLACE TO STAND , i'M GOING AND STAY A FEW MORE DAYS THE NEXT TIME .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
After spending a very long and hot day driving and looking for properties in the Clearlake area, I was so happy to spend the night at this little place. The staffs were friendly and the place is newly remodeled. Our cottage came with two queen size beds. It was quite clean but I did find a stain on my bed cover. :-( This particular room was a bit odd […] because it was designed for the handicaps. Excellent for that but there were no place to put your toiletries in the bathroom and no sink by the microwave and coffee area. Doesn't make sense as it's not easy for the handicapped people to go back and forth between the counter and the bathroom. Still, I love the fact each cottage are separated from another and so close to the lake and moreover, they are PET FRIENDLY. Big point for me. However, when I book the room on line, I did not see the disclaimer that they charge you $21 extra per pet. But they do give you a little dog bed and water and feeding bowl. Nevertheless, I didn't mind as not many hotels are pet friendly and my dog was quite happy in the room. I'm happy. The nearby area doesn't offer much and not exactly the kind of town I'd walk alone by myself. Still, the cottage being by the lake and we enjoyed the beautiful sunset and full moon reflected on the lake; it was lovely. I will defiantly go back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
""Can't wait to go back""
My wife and I had a great time.The rooms were very clean and nice. We brought our boat and were able to dock it in a slip on the water. If you bring your boat make sure you have a quagga sticker on it. you can get a sticker from one of the near by bait shops.I give this resort a 4 star rating.Genuine Expedia guest review

"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!
"Charming and Clean. Beckons a Return Visit"
03/14/14 D L Troy, Illinois
The Good: Clearlake Resorts and Marina is a charming place. The grounds are impeccable and the rooms are comfortable in a "less is more" kind of way. This facility appears fresh as it had a MAJOR restoration a few years ago. The staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating (For example, we had a mechanical problem with our Hertz rental car which they helped us in resolving). As before mentioned, this facility was renovated and the owners obviously put a LOT of money and time into remaking the Clearlake Cottages and Marina. This property is pristine and the entire package is simply a pleasant lodging experience. The rooms are very clean (I'm a stickler) with a decor both relaxing and cheerful. Even though our "double-double" cabin (#22) was near the street, it was reasonably quiet with outside noise a minimum. Others have suggested requesting a cabin near the lake for the quiet, but for us it was not an issue. Besides, every cabin is somewhat "near the lake" and a morning walk around the grounds with the morning coffee proved a nice start to the day. Overall, I have no complaints. But I will point out that these are cottages and thus you should not expect a luxurious and large bathroom. Our #22, and probably others, was equipped with the common arrangement of commode and the standard tub/shower combination enclosure in the bathroom. A little plain? Perhaps, but it was CLEAN and ADEQUATE. The modern double sinks (nice touch) and vanity were cornered in the main room not unlike many newer hotels. Quality toiletries and hair dryer provided. Down the street is the "Main Street Bar and Grille" which has a 10% guest discount arrangement with the Clearlake Cottages and Marina. Great local place, more of a casual restaurant than a bar. The old time locals obviously like it and they serve an AWESOME breakfast which is available all day (try the "Hobo" special. I had it two days in a row and find myself craving it as I write this). And if you like an occasional donut (or two or three), do try "Castle Donuts" which is also nearby. They offer TASTY "local" donuts. We road tripped out of Clearlake to the redwood forest areas to the north and found the location perfect, especially with Napa Valley as our south destination upon leaving. Less than an hour and a half drive from the Sacramento International Airport, Clearlake proved an ideal base location for exploring a beautiful and too often overlooked area of California. Now, the bad: Clearlake, as a town, has obviously seen better days. The changing demographics now consist of many "residents" seemingly content to exist on the generous California public assistance (as reported by more than one local). Thus, a weak tax base appears evident by the of lack of adequate sidewalks, unkempt parks and many streets which need some attention. However, EVERYONE we encountered in the community of Clearlake was friendly and courteous to us obvious visitors. There was no excessive litter and I saw very little graffiti. I was traveling with my elderly mother and neither of us ever felt uncomfortable or in danger. In my experience, although the town appears tired and and offers little entertainment, Clearlake proved a good destination due to location and the natural beauty of its' surroundings. Overall, I rate the Clearlake Cottages and Marina highly as it provided a pleasant experience and I hope to visit again.
"Nothing to do in Clear Lake"
03/10/14 Janet01234 Lodi, California
The Clear Lake Cottages & Marina were very nice but their is nothing to do in Clear Lake! If you plan on staying in the cottages during your entire stay than I would recommend this location but if you want to do something during the day or evening then go somewhere else....very disappointing. The surrounding area is high poverty not a place you would want to walk around. No good restuartants.
"We loved it!"
01/01/14 curlytucker Astoria, Oregon
Upon arriving, we were warmly greeted by the staff and given a tour to show us where everything was. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Our dog was greeted with open arms and provided with treats, a bed and a set of dog dishes. The grounds were well kept and the lake views beautiful. Highly recommend this place!
"We really like this place."
11/30/13 TheBlum Novato, California
This was our first visit here and we checked in Thanksgiving morning. The woman at the front desk registering us was very pleasant as was her son Devin (about 5 years old). We booked a standard cottage and asked to see #27, which is right on the water. It has it's own deck overlooking the lake and it is just a very qiet and peaceful place. You can also fish here too.
"Very Relaxing! Clean and Cozy--"
11/09/13 Jan M Crescent City, California
This was a way-point on a recent trip south to the San Joaquin Valley for us. We were very comfortable and enjoyed the view of the sparkling blue lake and autumn-hued trees. We wished the smell of the chemicals used to clean the room was not so strong, but we did appreciate the clear impression we got that the room had been thoroughly cleaned. Dinner and breakfast were available just about a mile up the road. Not great but good and inexpensive with a 10% discount for hotel guests. We'd use this location again for a way-point, but I do wish we had a boat and could use the launch ramp to go out on the water!
"Clear Lake Calm"
11/02/13 Nicholas G
A chance finding on the way south and it proved to be golden nugget. Located on the lake front the basic cottages provide all one requires of a short stay or self catering vacation. Tranquil setting with adequate local facilities and friendly staff.
"Nicely Updated Cabins"
10/16/13 James E Clearlake
What a nice place! Right on the lake. The hardwood laminate floors are a nice touch. The bed and pillows were super comfortable. Next time I plan to spend the night in Clear Lake I will absolutely come back.
"If I could have a do over......"
10/14/13 joni h San Jose, California
I'd probably like to stay on the other side of the lake. I found this place online and knew I wanted to see Clearlake. It was our first trip to this area-even though we had been to Calistoga and Napa Valley frequently. I had a little buyers remorse. The cottages were overpriced. The one we stay in was clean and had a well equipped kitchen. But the general area is "slum ish." No nice restaurants or attractions. We drove around the lake. There were pear orchards and a fantastic state park. Looked like Lakeport was the place to check out.
"Great place to stay in a horrible town!"
10/08/13 Bonnie F Cameron Park, California, United States
The cottages themselves are very nice. We stayed in #25. The room had a nice smell and seemed very clean. We traveled with a dog and were given food bowls and a bed. The staff was very nice and courteous. There is a very large grass area for pets, which is nice! There is a very narrow boat launch into the lake. The pool sparkled, the outside picnic areas were lovely. The town itself is a little rough. There really isn't anything nice I can say about the town. The reason the cottages got 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the town. So if you are going to travel to Clear Lake, I HIGHLY recommend staying at these cottages.
