This is my first stay at this resort. I wanted to stay in a reasonably priced lakefront resort in South Lake Tahoe! The resort advertised an "End of Summer Luau" which I thought would be fun because I love Hawaii. I originally booked a non-lake view room because I thought I would be able to enjoy the beach and amenities... More

Very beautiful setting for a wedding. The catered reception by the resort was very well done. The food was wonderful and the service was excellent. It was nice to have Two restaurants on site. The room was very nice and clean.

Very relaxing stay. Room was a little dirty upon arrival but staff was very friendly and curteous. Boathouse had excellent service, food and drinks. Location was excellent. Beautiful Lake Tahoe, was right outside our back window with easy access to the beach, restaurant and within walking distance of shops and grocery store.

Our room was right on the beach. Gorgeous balcony view of the lake. My family loved the spacious room and convenience of it close enough to downtown, but away from the crowds. Will definitely be back next summer.

Our room was in good condition, clean and average size. The beach view location was perfect. The grounds are well kept and parking was easy. Front desk staff was very friendly and warm at check in. They do a great job of making guests feel welcome. I would stay here again.

The hotel was a great location, we wanted something on the lakeside and close to Heavenly resort and other restaurants. It was nice that there was a Safeway right across the street with a Starbucks in it too. The food at the restaurant was good. Breakfast was awesome. Wonderful omlettes with not a lot of grease. The boathouse restaurant was... More

My family enjoyed our 3-night stay here. The room was comfortable and clean. Even though the lake level was affected by the drought, we still enjoyed wading in the lake. It was a definite plus to be able to walk to the lake from our room. We stayed on the 2nd floor and had a balcony where we were able... More

Booked last minute as my birthday break. Pleasantly surprised that this place exceeded my expectations. Requested a room with two double beds on a higher floor with partial views of the lake. The moderately sized room was very clean with well-appointed amenities...hand soap, hand lotion by the vanity desk and body gel, shampoo and conditioner in the shower. There is... More

We have been coming here for many years, while it was under the old name "Timber Cove Inn". Good value for the money, god location, the Lakefront rooms are great. Service at breakfast is among the worst we have ever had....and this is on both days. Carry a box of crackers, you will be better off.

Small rooms, but well equipped and clean. Bottom floor rooms can be noisy, and you can hear footsteps from above quite loudly. Excellent setting right on the sand of Lake Tahoe and close enough to many restaurants/bars/shops. Also, two very decent eating/drinking spots on the property, as well as a weekend "tiki-bar" on the beach. Staff was excellent, friendly and... More
