Stayed here over the fourth as we wanted to be able to see the fireworks. We were told wrist bands would be handed out to make sure it was just hotel guests at the beach/pier for the fireworks. Once we arrived we were told you would have to pay $10 per person for the wrist bands to watch from the... More

We travel to Lake Tahoe every summer and Thanksgiving. We always stay at Lake Land Village or Marriot Timbercove Lodge. Both we love and have never been disappointed. This trip however, LLV was booked and the Marriot was a little pricey so we thought we would try the Beach Retreat Lodge. Boy was that a mistake! This place was so... More

This used to be a Best Western which we have stayed at several times. I just checked in and encountered several problems. The first was the front desk. There were two people & neither one knew how to retrieve a reservation. One person was almost exclusively taking telephone calls in spite of having a third person in a back room.... More

We stayed at the Beach Retreat and Lodge because of a wedding. There were 3 weddings on the beach just on Friday with more weddings scheduled on Saturday and Sunday! The resort is totally under construction and noisy during the day. The exercise room is closed which they told us was posted on their website. We did not see any... More

Where it not for the beach front location, I'd rate this as average. However, if you're prepared to pay a little extra for a room with beachfront access, it really is a great summer vacation property. Best rooms are in Block B, Ground floor B101 - 104. They open right onto the beach with spectacular views all bay but especially... More

This hotel is ideally situated on the beach at South Lake Tahoe. The surrounding facilities are excellent. But having paid for a lake view room we were palmed off with a room which overlooked a wedding marquee. We complained are were moved. The tranquility of the beach is often polluted by amplified wedding music and ceremonies. The evenings are dominated... More

We arrived at the hotel and when checking into our room found we were overlooking the pool but were on the end of the building next door to the building work that was been done to the entrance to the hotel - we had not been warned of this! We went down to reception and were offered another room over... More

Ask if any planned weddings. If so, get a room away from event because they allow music till 10 pm. The windows in room, however, are good enough to block out a lot of noise. Bed was heavenly and we slept soundly! Rather narrow room since it was previously a Best Western. Fireplace gauge on right side of it, is... More

We opted for a 1st floor beach access room for our anniversary. We arrived Friday night to find there was a very loud wedding occurring on the property 20 feet from out room. We checked onto out room and immediately went outside to see the view and enjoy some wine and found out all we could here was the wedding.I... More

We recently stayed here for 3 nights as a rest period between Vegas and San Fran... We wanted somewhere quiet to relax after a busy week I'm Vegas and a busy week ahead. We upgraded to the beach/lake view (room 302) it was absolutely stunning- the room is made so comfy and cosy and has everything you need. The view... More
