Check-in was friendly and quick. Breakfast was awful...only toast and cold cereal. Community tub of margarine and bottle of squeeze jelly...??? No luggage rack in the room which was very hard on backs and knees. NO HAIR DRYER!!!! Really. Will travel to Watertown rather than stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay here. The manager went out of his way to help us out any way he could. Our family pretty much had the hotel booked for a family wedding. The rooms were clean, and the beds were very comfortable. We would stay there again if we were to visit again.

They were so friendly and accommodating! I love the small hometown feel of Clear Lake and the hotel management and staff represented that...

Arrived to see the manager? sitting on the front porch, drinking a beer, smoking and chatting on the phone. She waved us inside and said she would be right with us. After 10 minutes, she came inside, only to ignore us and continue talking on the phone. After another 5 minutes, she concluded the call. She was not at all...
