The double queen room was huge and perfect for our three-night stay. Convenient to both South Lake Tahoe and the stateline (though admittedly I do like walking everywhere) I found it to be the perfect place to stay. Staff are extremely helpful and friendly and I would definitely stay here again.

We could hear our neighbors talking, watching TV, opening drawers as well as their door to their porch/patio. The porch/patios are aligned with each other, so if you want to sit on your porch, you will be able to view all your neighbors. From the on line photos it looked like the place was on the beach side of the... More

Could not get upgrade, room was hot. So we're the others. Pool not in use. Price ok, room old needed to be up to style for that area. Only stayed one night. Would have chose another place to spend the night.

The hotel has its ups and downs, $160/night for a room with a back lot is just too much. Anything better would of been $200+/night. The hot tub and pool was the best feature of this hotel in my opinion.

We really loved our three night stay here. The room was clean and comfortable. On-site facilities were a plus; The pool was great and hot tub was amazing. The free bikes made the trip into 'down town' an enjoyable and easy experience. The staff were all excellent. A wonderful place for both summer and winter.

Pleasant hotel in an excellent location close to shops and across the road from the lake. The amenities are very good; the rooms pleasant. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Splendid view of the lake from the hotel.
