Awesome is what I have to say about this hotel. If you want to stay on a great beach of Lake Tahoe, and have a pool, and have a spa, and simple breakfast all in 1 place, this is it! Great, kind, & hard working staff. Don't expect luxury, but do expect clean.

We were in room 408. It was old and felt crusty. Will never come here again. Felt ripped off at $150 for the night. Sliding door did not lock. Cont breakfast 8 am to 10 am. Should open earlier. Front desk closes at 10 pm. No answer when called by phone.

Thanks for the time to review and the room number. It always helps. I will admit that our rooms are older as are nearly all the rooms on the North Shore. The rate of $149 is very competitive for this area for a room with 2 queens. In addition, we provide two pools, two hot tubs and are on the... More

Pro's: Reasonably priced, private beach, friendly staff, nice location, close to kayak & paddle board rentals, plus others. They have 2 pools,hot tub, picnic tables, gas grills, seating on the beach, and larger rooms to rent. Con's: The rooms are very outdated and uncomfortable. Wi-Fi barely works. TV's are the old tube style. Continental breakfast was barely more than cereal... More

Thanks for staying with us and taking the time to review. Have to agree we are an old place and some of our rooms are outdated. That being said, nearly all of our mattresses are three years old or less and are Serta brand similar to those used by many upscale resorts. We also understand that trash collection in the... More

We arrived at this hotel with the expectation that its aged and that's ok with us. But what I was surprised about was the lack of cleanliness. Don't get me wrong, inside the room was fine, aged but clean and ok. But outside of the hotel there were cobwebs everywhere, windows were dirty, the pool area was really dirty, not... More

Thanks for the comprehensive review. First, I will admit that we were behind on our exterior deep clean this spring. We had unusual and more difficult problems getting our pools up and going for the season and fell behind on some basic tasks. Cob webs and dust have been taken care of and a continuing process with the cottonwood trees... More

Great place, right on the beach at Northlake. My family held a reunion here a couple of years ago. Everyone loved the place, so it was an easy choice to stay here on my latest trip to Lake Tahoe. Great amenities and wonderful staff.

This is our go-to place when we want to go to Lake Tahoe area. Quite affordable either off or peak season.The rooms are clean and there are two pools and two hot tubs. We specially like staying in the rooms overlooking the lake. Lots of nearby restaurants within walking distance.

Ferrari's Crown is the best place to stay when visiting Lake Tahoe. We have stayed at five star hotels/motels at various places on South Shore and North Shore and none compare to Ferrari's over all experience. My wife and I stayed at Ferrari's in 1968, the first time we came to Lake Tahoe. We have since visited Lake Tahoe several... More

Ferrari's is my "go to" hotel for all visits to North Lake Tahoe. The location is perfect, with private beach access, being in the heart of the North Lake region and being close to great restaurants (including Hiro's Sushi across the street), grocery stores and all sorts of options for fun in both summer and winter. I have stayed at... More
