Great location, close to everyting at South Lake Tahoe, very good and very friendly service. Very clean! Furniture and rooms are a bit dated and used, but again, very clean. All you need is there, free breakfast and very good Wifi, mini kitchen free parking and all at a decent price given the location.

This HI is tucked away in a wooded lot in easy walking distance to many restaurants and casinos. Check in clerks were friendly and professional. Our room was located in the back buildings, where it was very quiet. The 2 story building did not have an elevator, but the 3 story building did, if that makes a difference to you.... More

Lovely hot tub to relax in after our long drive from San Francisco, only stayed one night before driving up to the north of the lake. Clean rooms, large bathrooms and free wifi. Nice breakfast, with bread, muffins, tea, coffee, bacon, eggs etc, also loved the pancake machine at breakfast! Helpful staff recommending palaces for dinner and things to do... More

A surprisingly good and refreshing stay, for a Holiday Inn Express. Well located in South Lake Tahoe, this one is built like a motel with a parking lot right next to your room. Rooms are very basic but the family room is large and comfy. They serve a decent free breakfast in the morning. Close walk to most points of... More

We stayed here for four nights starting July 4 and again a few days later for two more nights. We had a king room. It wasn't huge, but it was adequate. There are three buildings. One is located closest to the road, with the other two side-by-side in the back. Both of our stays were in the building closest to... More

Thank you for writing such a wonderful review. We appreciate when guests give us a thorough review. I did want to explain that every room has blackout shades, they are behind the drapes. We hope you'll be able to visit us the next time you're on our side of the country. Regards, Shari More

We stayed there in June, had the room with the jacuzzi, and must say we were impressed as property and quality service exceeded our expectations by far. The breakfast choices included in the room rate were excellent and better than the already good HIX standard.

Thank you so much for your review of our property. You described everything so wonderfully but I did want to clarify one point. The AC unit is a combo unit with the heater. So every room does have one. I hope you'll be able to visit us again the next time you're in our country. Sincerely, Shari Asst General Manager More
