My fiance and I stayed the first full week of August. We checked in Sunday. The park was unbelievably busy, no parking spots, very loud. The rest of the week the lake was barely busy and even though the hotel was mostly booked it was so quiet. You can't hear anyone.
We checked into the suite on the fourth floor. It was Definetly desent for the price. Alittle smaller than we expected but still kosher. The Bedroom was nice and big. The king bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on. The mattress is a pillow top, the pillows were great to. We coudn't stay off the bed. There was a TV in there along with a big closet.
The living room area had a couch, chair, small electrical fireplace, big jucuzzi tub and old TV with VCR. The tub has mirrors, on both walls surrounding it. The water stayed hot everytime we used it. The tub is an awesome fit for two. The tiolet and shower are seperate from the sink. There is a microwave and mini fridge, full set of dishes. The maid washed all of the dishes for us, which was nice since we were on vacation. The couch has a twin pull out, which is horribly springy. The TV was small and some of the channels didn't work. If I could change anything it would be adding newer TVs at least to the suites.
Balcony view is amazing excpecially in the morning. The entire hotel balcony views over the park, lake and mountains. Geese swim in the lake every morning. There are no bees, just gnats.
The hotel breakfast is ok. Good coffee and scones. Paper was free at the front desk. Food is close distance by car. The only thing is that all of the food places close at 9. Breakfast at BC MacDonalds was really good. Westside Pizza was good too.
Since it was summer the pools were always moderatly busy with kids. Alot of families at this hotel. The public park is very very busy on the weekends but during the work week it is just perfect. The park is beautiful well taken care of. Even though the park provides doggy doo pick-up bags some people seem to not care, So watch out for dog and geese poo.
Rented jet skis at jet skis ahoy. We checked prices at other places this seemed to be the cheapest. Alot of boats and people in the afternoon, all thoughout the lake.
Overall I would stay here for a few days in a few years. We had been to Chelan four years ago, The town was alot smaller then, It just keeps growing full of hotels all over. It is a nice hotel and the full staff is amazing, They don't need showers. Very nice people, that know the town very well. Were all very willing to help us.
