I wanted an escape from the stress of the daily routine, and I found the Lodge at Blue Lakes. Just what I was looking for -- a lake-side lodge with updated rooms. With the exception of a small grocery store, all restaurants are several miles away. The hotel provides a refrigerator and a microwave -- so bring your own meals... More

On our travels up the pacific coast, this was one of our one night stays. It was rainy and cold, but we were warm in our little cabin/motel. It came with a mini kitchen, two recliners and a very comfortable bed. It was a very lucky find.

You'd think, at first, that you were back in the 60's, but take a closer look. Beginning with the check in to the breakfast, which they claim is continental, which was more than that, it was pretty nice. Breakfast consisted of all the usual breads and cereals plus eggs, sausages, and waffles. Coffee was adequate. Our room #6, had a... More

Found this place last minute during a road trip to see the Avenue of the Giants. Spectacular hotel located on the edge of a lovely secluded lake. Breakfast and an hours kayak was all included in the rate which made the stay more than a quick stop off. Thanks to the friendly staff too.

We stayed here when we needed something near Ukiah for a soccer game. I try to go to unique places rather than a chain and I was pleased. The room was nicely updated with a comfy bed. We had a lake view room. We played in the water. No beach on our side and the water plants on the bottom... More

For the reasonable price, this place is really great. Breakfast is brought to the rooms in the morning and can then be enjoyed out the back entrance of the room on a small table overlooking the lake. The rooms are far enough back from the street that they are quiet. The lake is gorgeous and the lodge offers free use... More
