We had a very good stay here. The staff were very helpful and the breakfast was very good too. The room (one king size bed) was a good size and the little kitchenette very handy. No view but the location is very convenient for the supermarket, numerous eating places and ski lifts. The Gondola is a 3-400m walk and the... More

This is actually the second time I've stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in South Lake Tahoe. I spent a few nights there back in 2006 I believe. It was good then and things have not really changed. Last month I stayed there for the second time. I arrived with my girlfriend at the Holiday Inn well before 10am and... More

We just finished a 13 day stay. The location is very good, it is a 10 minute walk to and from the gondola with ski boots on, five minutes with regular shoes, Restuarants are two to ten minutes away, casinos are about 10 -15 minutes walk. The rooms are very nice, very clean, modern and in good repair. Nice grounds.... More

Stayed at this hotel 2 nights and found it very nice. The reception staff were pleasant and willing to help with anything we needed. The room was clean, modern looking and a nice size. The only thing I did not care for was the breakfast. Nothing really appealed to my wife and I but its rare to find a good... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was quite, the room was a decent size and very clean, along with the bathroom which had plenty of room and was very clean. The bed was comfortable and spacious. The room also included a refrigerator and microwave which were nice amenities. The TV could be updated, but the channels were good.... More

My family & I stayed here for 3 nights. Perfect location, close to heavenly gondola, shopping, restraunts, and casinos. The breakfast bar had several choices including cereals, toast, donuts, bagels, yogart, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, juices, hot chocolate and coffee. The room was nice size, clean and quiet. They also have a large enclosed spa and coin laundry. The staff... More

Stayed here Dec. 2009. Hotel is walking distance to shopping, restaurants, Heavenly Lift, Casinos, grocery store etc... We were there during a snowstorm and room was comfortable and I had a feeling of being in a ski lodge. Very nice fireplace in lobby/breakfast area. While in Tahoe--we also walked though Embassy Suites which had no fireplace and seemed like a... More

Great location, in the middle of the action yet quiet. The room is new and clean, spacious, bathroom is roomy and shiny. Just everything you need to spend the night comfortably. Breakfast buffet is just about everything you need before hit the road, simple and fast. We changed our plan during the trip, the manager gladly refunded us the unused... More

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.
