This BW is one of the nicest ones we've stayed in. It's not old in any way. Very neat and clean and modern. Very nice staff. Beatiful pictures on the walls. Nice view of Topaz Lake. We definately recommend it.

Hotel has a beautiful view. The building is old and not BW quality. Bed was fine. Room was extremely warm when we arrived. Refrigerator ran with load noise all night. Breakfast ok. We would not stay there again for the price.

We stayed one night on the way to Lake Tahoe. The staff were very helpful, even though it was 1:00 am. The room was large and very clean. The view of Lake Topaz in the morning was icing on the cake. We'll stay here again.

Beautiful area, love the drive to Topaz Lake. Property was very clean and they offer breakfast with pancake and waffle maker, so that's cool. We had views of Topaz Lake. There's a casino and resturant real close and the place was packed, they had country music and food was good or OK. I didn't see any other places to eat,...

We stayed at the Topaz Lake Best Western as the last part of our 4 week stay in the Yosemite area. We found it to be very nice, well landscaped outside, large comfortable rooms and a very good value. A small but fine breakfast was included and the staff was very kind. I would be happy to stay here again..

A quaint little place on the way to Yosemite National Park from Lake Tahoe. The rooms are big, clean, well furnished and the bathrooms are nice and clean. We spent only one night there but it was worth it. Comfortable sleep and a good breakfast in the morning. Mr. Patel was there to help us all the time. Our room...

This is one of the cleanest hotels we have ever stayed in. The breakfast was good. The bed was comfortable. The room was spacious and well furnished. All the staff we came in contact with were gracious, courteous, and professional. We will definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone who asks us where to stay in this area.

We chose this hotel because of its web page mentioning that all rooms had lake and mountain views, we also thought it would be quieter than Tahoe. We weren't disappointed with the view, only on the one day (out of three) when they were painting outside our room and so the window was taped up. But they cleared it out...

Dirty along corridors. Building smelled like curry. Breakfast was terrible. Food like eggs and meat, not available sometimes. No napkins once. Sticky sugar and creamer containers. Coffee Thermos Dirty. I had popcorn first night watching TV. Bits fell to floor. Never got vacuumed up by staff. Wind blew in around my door on windy days, which made a annoying noise....

Our room consisted of two queen size beds with free wifi, refrigerator, microwave, desk and office chair and a nice size bathroom. It was furnished with nice warm tone colors, everything looked quite new in our room, the carpets were great to walk on which made one feel almost at home. Clean & had a great touch of feeling comfy...
