Would be a nice place if you get a room where you can use the facilities. The smallest bathroom I've ever seen at a hotel with more than one star. Not on my list of places to stay at Tahoe ever again. Had paid for lakeview room but got diner parking lot view

Stayed here on multiple occasions and I can recommend this place to anyone. It's in a great location near plenty of restaurants and other things to do, plus the pool and jacuzzi are open til 11pm which is a plus. Always have a good experience when I stay here.

Very easy to find, great location in South Lake. This hotel is close to a ton of restaurants and bars and within walking distance of everything you need! Friendly staff as well and clean rooms. Only complaint is the walls are a bit thin.

Great room. Clean, plenty of space. Nice balcony view. The in-room mini fridge and microwave as well as coffee maker are a great plus. It's nicely located across the lake and very close to shops, restaurant and stores. Located within minutes of the slopes.

We have always stayed in the casinos and this was more peaceful, except for the sounds of traffic at night. (We had a front room with a view of the lake.) We'd gladly stay there again. Roomy, nice refrigerator and microwave. Would have liked movies in the room. Greatly helpful staff.

Our room was clean and comfortable. It wasn't anything fancy but it has all the basics covered. The in-room microwave and refrigerator is a nice plus. The hotel's location is great -- close to slopes, the lake, stores, and restaurants. The only complaint is the rather outdated temperature control. No A/C and a weak fan made the room feel stuffy...

So much to like -- beautiful view, close to everything, bowling & pizza for kids right there and I especially love that my dog is welcome! It's not much more expensive than the cheap motels around South Lake Tahoe -- shop for the discounts.
