We stayed here one night for our anniversary and initially enjoyed our time. The room was quaint in size, but tastefully decorated with a slight nautical feel. The addition of a gas fireplace was a nice touch and made the room feel more cozy. In the bathroom, it was a standing shower only, and the light had some flickering problems.... More

My husband and I just came back from a weekend here to celebrate our anniversary. The room was beautiful, quiet and very very clean. The fireplace created a very intimate and romantic setting. Our room opened right out to the beach and pier. The view was spectacular. Big flat screen TV in our room and free WIFI. The hotel does... More

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
