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

My husband and I stayed one night at this lodge for a quick trip to Heavenly. The staff was friendly and the room was very nicely done. The bed was a little hard, but overall the small touches, the beautiful tile in the bathroom and the cozy "cabin" feel is hard to beat at this price. It's also within walking... More

This place was super clean, really nice and perfect for the price. I would recommend it any friend and will definately stay there again. The decorations in the rooms really give you that Tahoe Mountain feel...

Who's fudging the reviews? I stayed here a couple years back, and it was just average and really not very clean. Unless they've done a dramatic turn-around, this place is a long long ways from being a top-ranked motel.

This place has recently been remodeled and the rooms seem brand new. Plus, there is a nice new pool area too. Walking distance from the lake and better yet the Heavenly Gondola. The only problem is they have a viscious dog that sounds like it is completely crazy and they let it run around in the fenced pool area. Avoid... More

A group of us stayed at the Mark Twain Lodge two weeks ago for a baseball tournament. Our room was very nice-newly remodeled with marble countertops, tile floors, a gas fireplace, a "mini" kitchen set up with a microwave, coffee maker and minifridge, and extremely comfortable beds. All of the rooms are nonsmoking which was a huge selling point. The... More

We will be back next year for... More
