Great quiet atmosphere with great bed and plenty of pillows. It's the best sleep I've had at a hotel in years. I came back and stayed an extra night. I will stay at this hotel anytime I'm in the area. Microwave and refrigerator inside the room. Provided nice smelling lotion, conditioner, soap, and shampoo. They even provided a make up...

The rooms are very large and comfy. We had 2 dogs with us and our room was perfectly located to allow the dogs to go out. Quiet and very clean hotel and rooms. I would definitely stay here again. There is a 24 hour market and gas station within a very short distance (walkable).

A friend and I were recently stranded when extreme flooding in the Lake Tahoe area caused road blocks that prevented us from returning to our condo at Heavenly Resort. We found refuge at the Lake Topaz Best Western, and our experience was exceptional. The owner/proprietor was very accommodating when he learned that we had no luggage. He provided us with...

I was a little nervous to book something online without a referral. But I eneded up being happy we did it. Clean rooms. Woke up the next morning and took a walk to the lake with my wife. What a beautiful walk

Clean rooms friendly staff and fast internet what else can you ask for. I have been staying in the area for the last fifteen years for business. This is by far the best place to stay. I will not go into detail about the neighboring hotel but will not stay there again.

We stayed one night at BW Topez Lake Inn while on our Christmas trip. The front desk lady was friendly and helpful. She asked if we preferred a bottom floor room or a 2nd floor room. She also gave directions to a near by restaurant. An other staff member was very kind and helpful to my 6 year old son....

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,...
