I've stayed here twice now and both times, I have been very satisfied with the rates that I have payed and the quality of the rooms. The staff is always friendly and welcoming, the rooms are clean and spacious. Best of all, they're set up in such a way that you feel like you're staying in a cozy cabin instead... More

Generally, when I visit Lake Tahoe, I am with a large family group that stays at Harrah's. I have been a guest at Harrah's at least 10 separate visits. So this review must be tempered by this fact. Anyways, this visit, only my 13 year old son and I were making the trip. I figured that paying up for the... More

We booked several rooms for a family get together and had a fantastic stay. The suites are wonderful and all of the rooms were clean and updated. Loved that we could visit and prepare meals within the suites and outdoor cooking area. The pool area is also really nice. It's a great location with just a short walk to the... More

This is the only hotel I will stay at in South Lake Tahoe. The rooms are super CLEAN and are updated. The hotel is in a great location. You are walking distance to the casinos, shopping and beach. The pool is great for use in the summer time.

Stylish, bordering on luxurious, open fireplace, a grade furnishings that reflect a mark twain cabin. A two minute walk to the gondola, and all stateliness has to offer, I love the place!!! The staff is courteous and efficient, the owners are terrific people, really, it leaves the surrounding places for dead. I do not consider staying anywhere else

I stumbled upon the mark twain during one of my trips to Tahoe when the courtyard misplaced my reservation, fortunately for me the management at the Mark Twain provided me with a room, and what a surprise the room was huge and well decorated the bathrooms were especially great(large tub and separate shower) I don't need to look any more...

I've been to the Mark Twain numerous times and for many holiday weekends. I've never been disappointed. The rooms are fully remodeled with great suites on the top floor for families. I've stayed on multiple trips here for a week in the suites and it always feels like home. The location can't be beat and the price is fair.

I recently took my daughter for a mother-daughter weekend. she was very impressed. The rooms are always clean, the towels clean fresh and thick, and bed... More

Over the years I have stayed at several different motels, hotels & lodges in So. Lake Tahoe, but have never found anything like the Mark Twain Lodge. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, lots of amenities, friendly & helpful managers and to top it all off, it's "pet friendly" for those of us who just can't stand to leave Fido at home... More
