The Best Western in Clear Lake shows its age a bit, but the friendly staff more than make up for it. The free breakfast is great and the pool area is large and clean. This is the place to stay during the Winter Dance Party!...More

Lots of parties here this weekend, nothing to get too excited about. Friendly check in even though they forgot to reserve the room. I was lucky to have the room I did have. Pretty comfortable beds and nice stay overall.
