This hotel is steps from the beach. It was also clean. The website however, is misleading. The rooms and restaurants are much smaller than they appear in pictures. The rooms are small enough to almost be claustrophobic for two people. The bathroom and shower were tiny and uncomfortable. The AC did not work well at all. The hotel is in... More

I do plenty of traveling, and this hotel was definitely not what I expected. The rooms opened to the outside instead of an indoor hotel hallway, and the carpet on the outside was very tattered and worn. In order to get to my room, I had to take an elevator with inside dimensions of about 4'x4'. Too tiny, and I... More

The staff and grounds were great! Unfortunately there was a wedding right outside our room that blocked the view of the lake. Perfect beach location and easy access to the strip. I would recommend to a friend.

Spent a couple of nights recently for a business/pleasure trip. My husband attended a class at one of the casinos in Stateline while our daughter and I spent the day at the Lake. While familiar with Lake Tahoe we normally stay in the West Shore area so being in the heart of South Lake Tahoe was new for us. The... More

We stayed in a partial lake view king bedroom with our toy Australian shepherd. The room was nice, form the reviews and price we expected a little more then we got. The bed was comfortable and I am pregnant so I appreciated the amount of pillows in the room. We had a long day of driving so we relaxed, watched... More

Our room was great! Based on other reviews, I asked for a ground floor room since I was vacationing with my 5 year old grandaughter and wanted easy outdoor access. Out the front door was the heated pool and out the back door was the sandy beach, lake, and pier. After spending the day in sun and water, we had... More

This beautiful facility is right on the lake so we enjoyed the sunset while dining at the Pier and a stroll along the beach each day. The room was lovely, even has a fireplace! The internet was easily accessed. The bed was very comfortable and the room and bathroom were spotless. Love the balcony with a couple chairs to enjoy... More

Was at this hotel for a night on 7th June. We had a room overlooking the lake; the weather being sunny with some isolated clouds, made a gorgeous image. The long but shallow shore makes it ideal for kids and senior citizens to frolic. The food choices at the resort are a little limited, but there are excellent places around... More

My boyfriend and I enjoyed our one night stay there. The hotel is only a few steps away from the beach although not all of the rooms have direct view of the lake. The room was clean and nicely decorated. The only major drawback that I have is the air conditioner was a bit loud in the room. The hotel... More
