“Nice, quiet and clean”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

This motel will not book a room to anyone who smokes and they have a strict no pet policy. Because of this it is a very clean and quiet motel. It is run by a couple who have been in the area for a number of years and their personal touches on the decorating in the rooms are evident. The furniture is nice, there was a microwave and refrigerator in the room- no coffee maker. Also, they do not do any type of breakfast. The motel is conveniently located walking distance from most of the restaurants around the downtown area. Two drawbacks are: no air conditioning--request the rooms on the east side of the property as they do not get the strong afternoon sun- the hotel is one story so it's a bit strange to leave the windows open at night-although the owners say that it's ok to do so. The other drawback is that it is located on Cottonwood Pass and there is a lot of traffic going by- some with rather loud mufflers--again if you request rooms facing east they seem to be the quieter ones. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: East facing rooms are cooler and quieter

Stayed 3 nights over the July 4th holiday. Great location, very clean property, simple but meets all needs. Very close to town, could walk to most eateries and parks in the area. Owners gave good advice on restaurants and things to do around town.

We found this motel to be very conveniently located to a park and restaurant. It is extremely clean, can actually smell a scant smell of bleach when entering the room. The room is done in a cabin style decor with quilt coverings on the beds and even a crocheted toilet paper cover on the extra role of paper in the bathroom. There is no air conditioning but even though it was hot outside the room was very cool and comfortable with the use of the ceiling fan. It is a no smoking establishment, and that includes the use of marijuana! I saw that sign on a couple of motels in Buena Vista!! Pets are not allowed either. I was impressed with
the questions asked before they rent out the room so there should be no misunderstandings. Wi-fi worked very well. We would definitely stay again and enjoyed the cozieness that the motel offered.

This is probably the cleanest place we have ever stayed. It is small but very comfortable and right in the middle of town by the park, so walking to most places in town is a snap. I would recommend this highly.

Room Tip: Two types of rooms, small , and for a little more, larger with larger beds.

Stayed one night in this hotel while on a business trip in BV. Room was very clean and reasonably priced, although a bit small.

When we checked in we were questioned if either of us were smokers- we aren't but found out later they will not rent to smokers, which seems a bit over the top to us.

There were coffee mugs in the room, but no coffee maker and when my wife went to get some at the office she was told they didn't make any in the off season.

While reasonably priced and clean it's an odd place, not sure if we'd stay again.

The Lakeside Motel is very nice. It's extremely clean and well-maintained. If you're not looking for an overly fancy place to stay and just want clean accomodations at a great price you should consider the Lakeside Motel.

We stayed our third year in Buena Vista at the Lakeside Motel. They continue to improve the roomes - this year with a lovely kitchenette (see photos) and new decor. The Lakeside is a true Buena Vista local. The management are kind and the rooms are immaculately clean.

We loved our short stay and hope to be back again next year, as usual. We highly recommend the Lakeside from all perspectives - central location, quiet, comfortable, well-serviced, clean and friendly management. Also, excellent value for money!
