We have stayed at this hotel 3 times during our summer vacation (twice when it was a Best Western). We have always had a good experience. When it was a Best Western they used to have a complimentary breakfast, now they don't. The beach and the pier is a short walk away. The rooms in the back have a beautiful... More

My husband and I wanted a weekend stay in South Lake without the baby. We booked a "Secret deal" on Hotwire and this was the resort it booked us into. The positives: RIGHT on the water, especially if you are in the back wings Adorable interior of the rooms, very Ralph Lauren nautical Gas fireplaces were very romantic, a nice... More

We were in Bldg. B, 3rd floor, full lake view. EXCELLENT view of the lake. Nice little balcony with two chairs. The room had plenty of room for two with a king bed, which was quite comfortable. Nice gas fireplace at foot of bed. No fridge or microwave, but we didn't need it. Bathroom is nothing to write home about,... More

Not a good choice to stay. I would rather stay at Days inn than this hotel next time. Since it costs more, we expect it would good. But it's not. The reason as follows:- 1. I booked a Lakeview King room. What I got is a partial view of the lake only from the balcony. When I asked them if... More

Have stayed here twice - once for a winter ski getaway to Heavenly and one for a summer weekend away, this place fit the bill for both. Has a nice lakeside beach. Rooms are small but the beds are comfy. The bathrooms are pretty bad stand up plastic showers, kind of ghetto. Nice gas fireplace in our room. They allow... More

We stayed for two nights in a King room through a Hotwire deal. The bed was super comfortable and the room was well decorated and the space was used well. Our room had a table and two chairs, a closet, two-part bathroom, hallway/entry area with hooks to hang coats, and a balcony. The room was warmer and less noisy that... More

Lodging in Tahoe during ski season is expensive, so when I got a room with a king bed on saturday night for 30% off ($100) through hotwire, I was pretty stoked on it. Pro: - Pet friendly (several people had their dogs) - Nice fireplace - Good linens on the relatively high quality bed Neutral: - had a hot tub,... More

We stayed in room 302 Building B (highly recommend building B - unobstructed view for us of the sand, lake and mountains). Room was clean, had a flat screen TV, gas fireplace, and balcony. It had a coffeemaker although we didn't use it. Had no problems with noise from the neighbors, room was cleaned very well while we were out.... More

This hotel is by far one of my best hotel experiences! We stayed here Saturday night and Sunday morning, and I had such an pleasant time. When we came to registration, the people who helped us were extremely helpful and kind, and they really made us feel welcome. They were even kind enough to knock off about fourty dollars because...

We traveled before the summer tourist season opened, so the motel wasn't full. So glad we paid a little extra and were lucky enough to get a first floor room that opened on to the beach. The best part of the morning was sitting on our patio taking in the view, then taking a walk to the end of the... More
