Stayed here for 2 days of skiing in Feb 2008. Location was great very close to Heavenly Gondola, but I'd do it in regular shoes and not my ski boots. Bathroom was enormous was clean and modern. Breakfast included was convenient but it was way too small of an area and really is a joke to eat in the lobby.... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in South Lake Tahoe from Feb 23, 2008 through March 1st. Checking in was a little bumpy as the computers were down when we arrived. First the guy at the front desk was checking us into one room, when another guy walked in and said he had just put people in that room.... More

Stayed here for four days of skiing in Feb 2008. Great location, approx 2 blocks or five mins walk from Heavenly Gondola, so possible in ski boots. Rooms set back from road, so reasonably quiet. Room was spacious and had mini-fridge and microwave and great king-size bed. Bathroom was very big and all fittings and furnishings were fresh and modern.... More

Reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and then going to this Hotel are what caused me to sign up for the site to contribute with my own review. The reviews that I read were really spot on. This is a great hotel for the price ($180 for fri/sat and $149 for sun night). It was extremely clean with decent amenities,... More

The room was nice except for the urine stains at the... More

Good, clean and was better than I expected. Good location as well, esp for Heavenly. Not expensive either. Continental breakfast in the morning was okay - nothing special. Overall good value - would stay there again. Also must recommend the Sushi place over the road the Naked Fish and if you're renting skis we found Mtn Mikes Tees and Skis... More

We were quite pleased with The Holiday Inn Express. The hotel more than met our expectations. The staff was very helpful. The room was quite comfortable and clean (well maintained). My husband said it was probably one of the best hotels (in this price range) he's ever stayed in. Don't get my wrong, the hotel is not a luxury hotel... More

Centrally located: casinos, Heavenly skiing and restaurants are all within walking distance. Rooms were clean and the staff was very helpful. The continental breakfast was great on a cold morning. Next trip to lake tahoe, we would stay here again.

In my opinion, one of the best hotels in Tahoe for your money. It was priced excellent comparing to the much higher priced Mariott that was 1/2 a block away. It's walking distance to the shops and casinos but far enough away to have a quiet and restful night. The only reason I could not give 5 stars was the... More

We were booked for the hotel next door which turned out to be a dump, so we got a room here. The room was very clean and quiet and we had no problems. They had a pretty nice complimentary breakfast too.
