We used our RCI points to stay a week in a 2 bedbroom/2bath (2 kings) top level unit. I will say it was hot in Tahoe this week and the lack of AC did make the nights a little bit warmer than I would want, but it eventually did cool down and the fans did a decent job. (This is... More

In picking the Stardust, you have to accept some obviously bad with the remarkably good. Given the level of comfort available in true resorts, it's evident that many people rate this property high because they are willing to overlook the obvious shortcomings. Granted Stardust does a good job of dealing with the structure and layout they have (an old motel),... More

Motel is very nice, clean, good location and great staff. Only problem is no A/C. I stayed at the end of August and the room never got below 80 degrees. Property is older but very well maintained and cared for.

We got here and were put in an unlivable room...looked like a trailer motel. However, we asked to be moved and Jenny was AMAZING! The best customer service we have EVER had. So nice and willing to move us! Thank you, Jenny! You made our stay worth it.

We stayed for a week at the Stardust Lodge in a studio unit. The kitchen and bathroom are nice. However, sleeping in the sofa that opened up to a Murphy bed was uncomfortable and the studio unit was bit small for two adults. It was hot since there was no AC in the unit. The location is very good in... More

This was a timeshare exchange for us and as we drove in I wasn't sure about it. From the sign on it looks like you've gone back to the 50s. I reserved 8 months in advance and was only able to get a studio for the 2 of us. Since we needed a place for a week because of a... More
