“Love Campbells”
Reviewed 6 August 2012

We have been coming to Campbell's for around 10 yrs now....We have stayed in almost every lodge...I love them all for different reasons...and no they may not have poolside wait staff...or a few other resort amenities...however, it is the BEST family feeling-like a flash back to the 60's safe feeling...wonderful beach location-and right in town to stroll...or run the river walk...rent kayaks, canoe, or paddle boards...I also stay at the Westin on Kannapali Maui...and no it is not like that...However, IT IS an older FAMILY not corporate OWNED hotel.
Take a look at the history on the walls in the old building.
My girls who are now teenagers look forward and COUNT on going to Campbells each year...I read some of these other reviews and seriously cannot believe it.
The remodel looks great-granted Lodge 4 is the oldest lodge...and smaller size rooms...but I love them too...Lodge 3 is best if your kids are old(tween or teen) enough to swim and you want to sit out on your deck and just relax and watch them in the pool....while sipping on a cold beverage. (often times older kids will swim in early evening....)
For the most part-in 10 plus years...we have never experienced a bad time-or anything at Campbells...we are on our way this month.
I reccomend them whole heartedly -and I am SUPER picky and only stay at 4-5 star hotels or resorts!
If you need the newest lodge or larger feeling rooms...stay in Lodge 1.
For being out in the middle of NO Where and FAMILY owned my hats off to Campbells-love you!

(Poolside service-would be awsome though=) LOL

Room Tip: Lodge 1 -Newer Bigger sized overall. Close to everything-hardly any walking to get to everything. L...

My husband and I are here on our vacation-left our young adult kids at home! Our room has a lovely view of the lake and so do our beach chairs! Today was warm enough to enjoy the sandy beach and swim in the lake. We've eaten twice on the Veranda and had good meals and service both times. Tonight we walked to one of the restaurants across the street. Love the location here-across from Safeway and Starbuck's and a short walk to the drive-in and the restaurants on the main drag. Had no trouble finding beach chairs-have spent my days here reading and swimming. Had to adjust our dates at the last minute and had no problem. They promised me a room on the top floor but when we checked in was given a room on the middle floor. They fixed that for us as well. wish we weren't going home tomorrow so I could get in that lake one more time.

Room Tip: Every room has a lake view. Some only have a fridge/microwave, but some have a kitchenette. There ar...

Definitely not a "resort," by any means, but still one of the better hotels in Chelan. The exterior isn't quiet the most modern looking thing in the world, but in Chelan standards, it's good. Location is the best, hands down, in Chelan. Located right at the entry at the bridge, you can walk anywhere from your room. I recommend any restaurant other than at the hotel, as you can find MUCH better food throughout town (Tin Lilly, for example).

Pricing isn't great, at $300/night for a king lakeside room. Prices are on par for summer rates in the area, however.

The room is "updated." However, the interior decor is a bit eclectic. Seems the designer had a thing for the 1970's, boats, and Ikea. Very plasticy and shiny and oddly colorful. Not that it was gross, just....weird. The bathrooms could use some TLC though.

The location on the lake was the biggest draw for me. They have some decent shoreline access and views. Still, it felt a bit cramped in the summer with high occupancy trying to find a place to lay in the sun for the day without being ran around by kids and young adults alike. Walking around, we also felt like we were walking through somebody's back yard along the lower units on the far end. This area was like a massive block/frat party. They felt very dirty and old. The exterior needs a face lift for sure.

Would I stay here again? Probably. You could get a better hotel for the price in Chelan with better finishing touches, but it won't be on the water or have a beach, which is a big draw for me. Our view from our room was very nice and the room itself was clean. I just wish the "resort," had more amenities I have come to expect from a resort, like poolside drink service, larger grounds, and more privacy for lounging in the gorgeous Lake Chelan sun all day.

Room Tip: Get something NOT on the ground floor and definitely close to the main lobby building. The rooms on...

If you have to change reservations, big penalties! I had a reservation for exactly 10 hours and received a $600 fee! Completely inflexible and uncooperative. We will never stay or eat there again.
Check out VRBO....you can rent a house for what they charge!

We stayed for three days mid week and it was nice. I can believe that it's probably really busy on weekends. The kids loved the two pools and the beach. The resort is very clean and nicely updated. Beds are really comfortable. (we stayed in building 3 looking over the pool). We had a small "kitchen", which includes a small fridge and microwave, all the plates, bowls, cups you need. I was worried that it would be loud at night, but surprisingly not. The location of this resort is perfect, Safeway/Starbucks is across the street and you can walk up the main street and look at all the shops and go to the restaurants. We had read someone else's review prior to coming and took their advice and booked a ski boat from Jet Ski Ahoy as it was much cheaper than the one located beside the resort, but do not walk, drive as it's further than we thought. The only disappointing thing, was the resort has paddle boards to rent for very reasonable rates, but when we went to book one, they were already booked well past the end of our stay, so we ended up paying a lot more at the rental shop next to the resort. So prebook this before you come. There are lots of kids/family reunions here that seem to come every year (large groups). There are picnic tables and bbq's all over the resort for anyone to use. Always lots of towels by the pools and lots of lounge chairs, we never had a problem getting one. It's also nice that the pools are open from 8am till 10pm, as the kids always wanted to swim. Bring your floaties, as it seemed like there was always some here, but we were never sure if they were the resorts or other peoples. The lake is very clean and clear. In front of the resort they have a "no wake" area which is very nice when you are on paddle boards as you never have to worry about a boat coming by and knocking you off. I don't think we'd come here as a couple but as a family it's a great resort.

Room Tip: Building three is over looking the pool, so be prepared at 8am for there to be kids in the pool, bui...
