Our room was spacious and clean. Loved the water bowl, bed and biscuits for our dog. Ask for a room away from the pool. Too noisy! We were unable to sit out on our balcony and enjoy the view of the lake because there were 20 little boys screaming in the pool.

The room has been upgraded with a sleek modern look and was very comfortable, although we were surprised by the contemporary decor in the room that didn't match the woodsy Tahoe lodge feel of the Inn's exterior. The woman at the front desk was helpful, friendly & cheerful,... More

The hotel on the outside is beautiful and in a great spot. It was very convent to get to places. It didn't blow me away for the price I guess I expected more. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was small but had a cute balcony. Overall just an ok place to stay.

Arrived after a long drive and given a good welcome from reception. Handed our keys and went and found our room with a view. Yes you could see the lake but that was after a 4 lane road that was busy and noisy all day until late into the evening and the traffic started up again early in the morning.... More
