Went to Lake Tahoe for Thanksgiving weekend and really enjoyed this hotel. The rooms were spacious and beds comfortable. The staff was helpful in suggestions activities around the area. I also noticed how clean they kept the breakfast area. They really strived to make sure everything was filled and all surfaces were constantly cleaned. The location was great for us.... More

We stayed here in September, the location is excellent, the hotel appears to be a motel type building. The rooms are standard for a Holiday Inn Express the casinos are about a 10 minute walk, the Heavenly Gondola is about 5 minutes. There are probably better hotels about but value for money this is a good deal.

Check in was fast friendly & efficient,our room was absolutely superb,although I was glad that we were in a ground floor room as the stairs to the first floor rooms looked a bit severe to be hauling 2 large cases up(there was no elevator in our building),we even had a small...

We stayed here beginning of June when it was the 'most beautifull Bike ride in USA' there was quite a lot of noise when we were first given a room when I explained we would like to have somewhere a bit quieter, we were given another room instantly. We need not have worried it was as we wanted and a... More

I booked 2 nights here quite late after previous arrangements fell through, and it was an excellent choice. Very well located for actvities round Tahoe, such as kayaking and hiking, also surrounded by a very good variety of restaurants. The rooms were huge, very well equipped, wonderfully comfortable beds. Breakfast was the usual 'continental' but of good quality.

Easy to find as it is right on the main street, close enough to all the gondolas and ski lifts, plus a good selection of local eateries etc. Also 5 mins. from the Nevada border so if gambling is your thing then you are in luck. Room - Huge, although to put this into perspective we did get a complimentary... More

We stayed at the HI Express in Lake Tahoe for 4 nights while skiing at Heavenly. The hotel is in a great location for the Gondola and rental places nearby - Heavenly Sports at the base of the gondola are highly recommended with a ski valet service so you do not have to take your skis back to your hotel...

I was pleasantly surprised to see how nice this hotel was. It is in a great location, you can walk to the shops and Heavenly, they have free parking, the rooms are very clean, have new decors, refridgerators, and the front desk people were lovely. I wish that I had stayed here my whole vacation. Plus the price was reasonable.... More

South Lake Tahoe is a winter holiday resort, lots of ski fields etc. The Holiday Inn was very well located downtown. The room was large and clean. Service was good. Breakfast area small. Good value in an area where it could be quite expensive
