Stayed here in October, the weather was beautiful, and overall this was a good value. A room with 2 beds for $80 a night, right on the lake, and free breakfast. The heated pool was actually warm enough to swim in, it was only cold when we got out of the pool.

Thanks for taking the time to review our property. $80 is not our typical rate on the Lake even in our slower season, but glad we were able to upgrade you. Weather has changed here and pools are now both closed for the season. - Dave Ferrari for the Ferrari Family More

First of all, this hotel is right on the beach a great location. However it is in a mountain town that relies on tourism to sustain it through the dark months, and I sure wasn't ready nor did I appreciate how rude or argumentative the front desk person was. It really surprised me, and I doubt if we will ever... More

Without more details I'm not sure what caused this reaction by one of our staff. That being said, we should not be rude or argumentative. We will work on doing better. Thanks for the heads up. -Dave Ferrari for the Ferrari Family More

This is a modest, affordable motel directly on the lake with amenities including parking, pools, private and public hot tubs, beach chairs, lake front beach, and barbecues for guest use at no extra charge. Staff was very friendly, helpful and informed. Desk clerk recommended a nearby hike which was spectacular. Not fancy but clean, great location, and very reasonable. Kings... More

I had researched several properties in the North Shore of Lake Tahoe and read what was written about this motel. I was attracted to it because it was a family owned property. Because we stayed off season (9/10/14), the rates were very good. We originally booked a non-lakeview room, but paid $23.00 more to be on the lake. Still a... More

Thanks for the review. I see you caught our off season rates and were able to take advantage of what is always some of the best weather of the year. We work hard to keep our rooms clean and give people a good experience at the Lake. Hope to see you again. Dave Ferrari for the Ferrari Family More

I had booked a Standard room for myself and my bicycle (I am touring the US). When I got there and the Lady at the front desk saw my bike and the lugage on it, she arranged for me to get a bigger room at the same rate. When I decided to stay an additional night, as Kings Beach is... More

Thanks for taking the time to review us. We work hard to help people out when we are able to. As other reviews have stated, our standard units are fairly small but serve the purpose for our lower priced rooms. Since most rooms in Tahoe were built in the 50s and 60s, they are a sign of those times. Glad... More

From the desert to the lake. This place is exactly what we were looking for after the Burn. Free wifi. INCREDIBLE VIEW. Breakfast was standard but tasty. The front desk was very helpful in guiding us to destinations for dinner. Far exceeded expectations.

It was not good value for what we paid. We stayed three nights: Sat-Mon. The average room price was $188. For that price I expected it to be equivalent to a Best Western Plus, but it was NOT. The baseboards hadn't been dusted in a long time. The ironing board wouldn't fit on the rack where it should have been... More

Thanks for taking the time to review us. We work hard to provide a good value for what we offer. Our rates fluctuate by market demand, as is the industry standard. We do post higher rates in the summer. Our lakefronts can range throughout the year from $129 to $225. We regularly check our rates with competitors and are one... More

I read the reviews here on TA before booking so I was ready for a motel. This place isn't fancy but it has some great things going for it.

Thank you for the thoughtful review. You did a very good job describing our rooms and the “Spirit” of the Crown. We try to provide the same service we did when we first started with just 17 units. Pool hours may be more limited than some places. We clean pools in the morning and generally have one open by 10am.... More
