Roomy, comfortable...and that jacuzzi tub was fabulous! Lori, the wedding planner, who arranged our wow renewal on the pie, is a rock star!!! at sunset. She saw that everything was perfect, just the way... More

We had a room with lakeview. The rooms were well build, luxurious and clean. They all have a balcony, and the beach and pier are accessible right from the hotel. There is enough parking to accommodate most/all the guests.

This hotel reminded me of Paris hotels in that the rooms are small, but wonderfully decorated and very comfortable. The fact that they can squeeze a fireplace into a small room is a testament to creativity. The public spaces were modern. Everything was spotless, and the bed was comfortable and dressed with nice linens. We were on a ground floor... More

Love, love, love this hotel! We had a room which was directly in front of the beach, on the third floor. Our room had a fireplace and a refrigerator, which was nice to have. The view cannot be beat, it's Tahoe a few feet from your room! There's a small balcony, and if you're on the bottom floor, you can... More

This was our first stay here and our room was a little "cozy" for the price but the oceanfront view and location on the beach more than made up for it. The staff was friendly and housekeeping knocked and waited for us to respond. The food at the Boathouse was great, loved their clam chowder and it was nice not... More

Stayed here for a week this summer. We had a beautifully appointed lake front room with incredible views of Lake Tahoe. The room was quiet and very clean. Great location on the lake surrounded by many activities, shopping, dining and nightlife options. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Wonderful meals in their restaurant located on a pier on Tahoe.... More

We stayed at this resort for a family function. The resort is located right on the beach of South Lake Tahoe and is in a convenient location to walk to most things. Though this means that the resort is right on the busy main road. So if you have a room that faces south you’ll get that noise. We had... More
