This was our first trip to Tahoe & we didn't find anything in our budget besides this hotel chain. Didn't wanna take chances with something local or unknown. We were not disappointed one bit. It's located just off the main road, easy to get to & close to the marina, just across heavenly gondola. Not that it mattered because we... More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights and 4 days in hope of snow during our "babymoon" We were greeted by the friendliest staff then our room was upgraded to a beautiful suite for the first 2 nights, which was a nice surprise. We were also surprised by all the snow we experienced during our stay, which made for... More

I arrived a day before the start of my timeshare, so I stayed at this location for a night. Arriving slightly late in the evening, I was greeted by a cheerful and very helpful employee. She quickly checked me in and offered options for late night eats. The next morning the breakfast area was bustling and the staff eager to... More

I am a member of multiple reward programs and have stayed at hundreds of hotels around the globe and never have I had such a ridiculous, frustrating, and unpleasant stay. It started with a free night stay based on IHG credit card versus a point stay. While the rewards programs claims to have no blackouts, some of the hotels are... More

We have stayed here on may occasions and we still cannot fault the place. Location is good, rooms are clean and kept clean! breakfast for a freebie is ok. It is a good location to stay, quiet and a short walk to the casinos etc

We have stayed in the Holiday Inn Express every time we have visited Tahoe to ski for quite a number of years now. It remains as excellent as ever. The rooms are clean, tidy and well maintained.

On someone's recommendation we booked this hotel and stayed here for a 3-day weekend in South Lake Tahoe. It was so nice! The check-in lobby looked like any motel, but the front desk workers were very friendly and helpful. Our room was the real treat. It had a huge king size bed with a lovely fainting couch and a fireplace... More
