After being married 7 years I wanted to give my wife a break from our everyday lives. Give her some TLC. We arrived and the front desk was very helpful and attentive. Got to our room and we were stunned by the view! I mean right on the beach of beautiful Lake Tahoe! The room was very clean and orderly.... More

Great hotel on the beach and very Kids friendly. Hotel is right on the beach and you can enjoy great views of the lake and snow clad mountains right from your room Patio. Rooms are clean and staff is friendly.

Rooms are nice, location is awesome right on the beach and close to everything in South Lake Tahoe, plus of course ski resorts. My tip: for breakfast, go two buildings down the road (towards Nevada) and eat at Heidi's--their food and service is always amazing too.

Newly remodeled lobby and restaurant. Great outdoor and indoor setting for casual dining/bar. Kids safe to be in close sight but not right there at all times. Setting allows for separation of parties and different seating areas. ON the lake, amazing access. Close to grocery, restaurants all in walking distance.

I stayed at this hotel with my family, we love the view to the lake, the rooms are small but very clean and cozy. We spend time taking pictures and walking in the pier. Service is very good and strong Wi-fi signal. I recommend lake view rooms. I love staying in this Hotel.

If you're a forgetful person who tends to leave things behind especially things of great value, I warn you to stay away from this hotel. I admit, I could be forgetful sometimes, but most of the time I would remember things. Just is the case when I checked out of my room C302 on January 4, 2015 at around 10:45am.... More

We stayed here as a family of four (2 adults and 2 elementary aged children) for three nights beginning on New Year's Day. The hotel consists of several buildings with open air hallways. Despite having motor inn/ lodge bones architecturally, the property has been updated to give more of a boutique hotel feel. The lobby has a mountain chic atmosphere... More

Found this place right after Christmas and not cheap at over 150 a night. Check in was uneventful. Got in late and my husband crashed. As I climbed in I noticed pubic looking hair on the covers. Ew. The sheets were also very dirty and looked unwashed. I was not able to wake the husband to file a complaint. The... More

Stayed here during Xmas holidays for a night. The hotel is conveniently located with a direct access to the beach. There are couple of restaurants on the property although we could not try any of those. We stayed in a double room and the decor was decent. The bed quality was superb which you absolutely need after a day skiing.... More
