Lake View Hotel
Ranked #3 of 8 Chelan B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 August 2012

Beautiful well-equipped rooms but some quirks and cons... There's no front desk, or services of any kind. Our room key was in an envelope taped to the restaurant counter.
No parking. We used a spot in Campbell's Resort across the street but felt like we were sneaking by. Drop your luggage at the hotel back door to avoid carrying it a few blocks.
Noisy, on the main corner in town. Road noise, disco music, loud voices from the street. Rooms near front (201 and 202) probably get more noise than those at the rear.
No elevator. 2nd floor walkup.
Beautiful bathroom fixtures but water temperature was warm from both taps and never hot.

Room Tip: Get a room at the back of the hotel.

My wife and I attended a wedding in Chelan WA. We decided to try a small boutique hotel in the center of town, and we were not disappointed. The Lakeview Hotel is a charming small hotel located directly upstairs from a lively restaurant and bar. There is an outside patio where breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served. The food is good and the servers, often including the owners, are friendly and conversational. There is also an ice cream shop located next to the lobby which is open late for all the strolling vacationers.
The upstairs hotel has been remodeled with fireplaces in every room, and many other amenities, including soaking tubs, air-conditioning, and flat screen TVs. Our two night stay at this romantic hotel was delightful, and any future travel plans to Chelan will indeed include a visit to the Lakeview Hotel.

Room Tip: The best room is a suite in the front of the hotel, however it is also the most expensive, but worth...

After a very long day traveling from Glacier Park in Montana my wife and I pulled into Chelan at about 9 pm without reservations. We stopped at a lively restaurant/ bar to regroup and refresh. My wife noticed that there was a hotel upstairs and after looking at the rooms we stayed the night, The friendly bartender recommended a Mexican restaurant a few doors down, Marcellas,where we had a nice dinner When we went to the room and settled in We were really very impressed. Everything was brand new with a great king bed, flat screen tv, and fireplace There was a bar with a nice wine selection.. The bathroom was better than any hotel I've ever stayed in, with an air jet 6foot tub,beautiful tile and excellent Kohler fixtures, so nice that we photographed it as a model for a bathroom we are remodeling in our home. The next morning we had an excellent breakfast downstairs and a nice visit with Afni and Brent McDonald.,the owners/proprietors, They have recently remodeled the hotel from the floors up, totally first class. Our room had a window and skylight but the rooms across the hall had balconies overlooking the lake and there was a nice common area with a view. It was an altogether lovely experience with a beautiful room,friendly staff, good food and super hosts.
















.Lovely room,view, and experience

very charming indeed, with all the amenities available.
We had requested a room with 2 twin beds, since the cost of either queen or king were over our budget.
The room has only a skylight (no windows) which is not covered by anything.Consequently, you are being awakened with the sun, which penetrates through the skylight.
I'm not a light sleeper and yet, that was an unpleasant surprise, especially since we were on vacation, so 4:30 a.m. is not on our agenda of waking up.
There is not enough reading lamps ,so the room in the evening is quite dark.
Since the hotel is on the second floor of a popular restaurant, the noise carries up the stairs where our room was (#203)
Considering that this hotel which is in a very good location is not inexpensive, and based on our experience, I only gave it an average.Brent, the owner, is a very presentable and friendly guy.

We happened upon this small hotel late in the afternoon with no reservations and hopeful to just find a clean adequate room. To our surprise the room was more than adequate, it was superb! Wonderful amenities, jet tub, fireplace, wine and first class bedding. Our room had a great balcony that allowed us to enjoy the night air and a good nights sleep. Rooms are located over a restaurant/bar (which makes it hard to see the hotel signage) and which also serves as the front desk. Check in and check out process was a bit unusual, but also very casual and friendly. Would definitely return.
