What a great place! It looks very modest on the outside but you would not believe what you see once you are in your room (or better even in one of the suits upstairs)! Nicely remodeled and decorated, with a fireplace and a kitchenette with granite countertops. Very nice bathroom with slate and modern shower. Everything is very clean, comfortable... More

I was looking for a place to stay for the weekend of July 19 for a concert, my friend had a room booked at $250 a night!! I was in Tahoe 6 weeks before the concert so I took the time to look for an affordable place to call home for the weekend, we looked at several motels along park... More

I have stayed here several times in the last year and have been very happy with each stay. The property has been completely remodeled. The rooms are beautiful inside with crown molding and granite. It's very clean as well, which is very important to me. Love the location, it's within walking distance from heavenly village, casinos at stateline and a... More

Loved this hotel. We were looking for a nicer hotel since we were staying over Christmas. I noticed they had suites and were pet-frinedly. Also needed a location close to the Heavenly gondola. Mark Twain fit the bill! The website was not great, it's easier to call if you have questions. Plus, when I called, Cindy gave me a better... More

I recently stayed here and was quite happy and will go back. I was recommended it by a friend and she was right. Great location and extremely clean rooms. Outside and lobby was being redone while I was there. It does look average from outside....but incrediable inside.

This Labor Day, we chanced upon Mark Twain in Tahoe because the Rodeway Inn had messed up our 2 rooms reservation. Turns out the Mark Twain has wonderful remodelled 2 and 1 bedroom suites complete with fireplace, fully stocked kitchen, TVs in each of the bedrooms and the living room, heated pool etc. We were pleasantly surprised that it was...

The lobby was not too reassuring, but it did have crown moulding and a cute dog named Mutley. The hotel is dog friendly, and the price was fair. In the morning we walked to Heavenly village, so the location is nice. The room had a nice slate fireplace and a Jacuzzi tub in a remodeled bathroom. There was coffee and... More

Nice location, nice and clean room. The reception area is not that impressive but the room is nice! We got the room with 1 king bed, shower tub with jacuzzi!, it has a small kitchen (microwave, ref., and lots of cabinets) About 2 blocks away from Lake Tahoe Blvd, and across is the famous outdoor mall of Tahoe and the...

I just returned from an extended weekend with my 13 year old daughter and family friends. We were in town for a soccer tournament. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel! It looks fairly nondescript from the street, but once inside, the rooms are amazing! We were in a 2 bedroom suite that looked as if it had... More

Upon entry into the lobby we got a poor impression, but the room was totally remodeled and very nicely done. New plaster walls, new tub (GREAT bathtub with jets - LOVED it), and a nice gas fireplace. The beds were a bit hard, but we slept well. The hotel is right off the main street so you don't get the... More
