“Lovely lakefront view, average rooms”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

I would have picked 3.5 stars if it was possible. While this hotel has a beautiful lakefront setting on the beach and a reasonably good restaurant, the rooms are average. The biggest issue we had (2,stays, 2 weeks apart), was the hallways, which are not air conditioned. They were sweltering, much like a car in the sun with the windows shut. Agree with other reviewers who said "overpriced", although the view is very nice.

This hotel was very overpriced. Old through wall air conditioner so noisy I spent the nite shutting it off to sleep then turning it on when we got way too hot. Bathroom had a 20 inch door, and was dirty. Found used tissues by headboard. Then they screwed up the checkout and charged me more then quoted the next day. Hope customer care can fix this mess. My advice? There are lots of hotels in sand point, choose a difrent one.

Room Tip: To get a good room, choose a diffrent hotel.

For the price of a "suite", not a good value - overpriced. Air conditioner did not work and toilet ran the whole time. The "kitchen" was just a sink, mirror and small frig. No garbage can, stove/oven. It was like just a continuation of the bathroom. For the price of $230+ in the small town of Sandpoint, Idaho, I expected more.

What a shame that this location is so poorly managed. We have stayed at Best Westerns around the world and never had issues like this. The staff was indifferent to us and the owner refused to address the fact that the sloping floors needed better identification. I fell and broke bones at this hotel and was told it was my fault due to my heels! Preposterous. Not the type of business ethic I will support.

View and beach access make up for what hotel lacks (i.e. no A/C in hallways...which were unbearably hot, no free breakfast, small bathroom, poor TV reception). A bit pricey, but if you want to be a short walk to the beach, this location is ideal.

Beds were very comfortable. Room was very clean and orderly. The staff was excellent from check-in to check-out. The view of the beach/lake cannot be beat! Be sure to ask for a 1st floor room with the sliding glass doors that lead out to a beautiful grassy area that is just steps away from the beach and lake. You won't need a car if you stay here - everything is within walking distance and the staff is very helpful with dinner reservations and suggestions of places to go.

This hotel was perfect for our long weekend in Sandpoint. It was within walking distance of downtown and adjacent to a park on the lake. Absolutely perfect! The hotel was clean and updated and comfortable. We loved being on the ground floor with a sliding door to the outside and beach! We enjoyed the open air feel of the indoor pool and we also appreciated the fridge and microwave in the rooms.
