My husband and I stayed there for two nights, Sat-Mon with our dog the last weekend in August. I booked the reservation through Orbitz but it didn't give me the choice of booking a dog-friendly room even though the hotel web site said it is pet friendly. Upon arrival, the front desk clerk said they didn't have any pet friendly... More

I love the whole property and vibe, all the different levels of the hotel with the firepits are awesome. The courtyard with cornhole is always fun. And the assortment of beers is the best part of course. The staff is very friendly and Will especially helped me with samples to find the best beer.

Great outdoor area with fire pits on multiple levels and in very close proximity to the Harvey's and Hardrock outdoor concert series. Friendly and helpful staff. The bartender, Will, was very personable and was able to supply drinks quickly despite a crowded bar. Prices were reasonable as well, Another employee, Sean I believe, was very attentive and asked us if... More

This is essentially a motel with trendy decor. It was clean, and the bed was comfortable, parking was free and there is a basic breakfast included in the rate. However, the walls are thin, and this is an issue given that most people who come to South Tahoe are there to stay up late and party/drink. If you are coming... More

Hotel has been recently remodeled, very nice decor, bedding, and atmosphere. Hotel has 2 hot tubs, 2 bars / beer gardens, game room, lounge, and fire pits everywhere for... More

This was the 8th stop of our honeymoon around California and it was by far our favourite stay. It was very easy to find and in an excellent location just on the state line. We arrived early, with plenty of parking decided to take a walk into town. The hotel did ask if we wanted them to phone/e-mail us when... More

Awesome place, I loved everything about it! The fire pits are perfect for a late night hang out and they have everything you need for smores. Every detail in the rooms and the outdoor decor make this place one of the most welcoming and comfortable places to stay when you love the outdoors!

It’s fine to tout design and coolness but not at the expense of basics such as a clean, functional room. When we opened the door to our room, I noticed several prominent black stains on the carpet. The bathroom was dark and I realized this was because one of the lights had burned out. Similarly, I couldn’t turn on the... More
