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. Overall, we would stay here again because of the convenient location and the facilities were clean and safe. I like that this place is family owned & run and not by... More

We have been to this hotel several times now over the past couple of years and we love it. We come for the 4th of July week, the people are amazing both my teenager and young son have made amazing new friends. You can't beat this location in Kings Beach, the fire works are fabulous, the beach, and pool are... More

We had no reservations for Lake Tahoe and looked up hotels on Trip Advisor. This was recommended so we booked. Lake Tahoe was busy so we were lucky to get a room this area if Kings Beach has a number of Old School Motels a la 1950's. The Crown is one of those but it has been well maintained. Great... More

We visited the area for one night and reserved a lake view room. It was more like a ground floor fishbowl for humans, with a wall of sliding glass doors looking into a parking lot on one side and a window looking into another parking lot on the other. To be fair, there was a glimpse of the lake from... More

I apologize that you did not have a better experience at the Crown. This room is unique on our property and already booked for a number of days next summer, but also it's a room that some don’t like. It's one of the few rooms with a full kitchen but is not our best view unit. Many like the sliding... More

Our family came to Incline Village for a softball tourney. Most everything was sold out and my husband found this place through a DoD website. I wasn't so sure at first but once we drove through and saw our room I was/am a fan. The furniture is a bit dated but everything was clean and very comfortable. They offer gas... More

My wife and I just returned from our annual two-week vacation at Ferrari's Crown Resort. This was our eighth year. Our unit looked out on the lake and pools. We were joined this year by friends whose families have come to love the place as much as we do. Only fifty years ago, Lake Tahoe was dotted with dozens of... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us. A few of our units do have AC, but most of them do not as a lot of the Lake Tahoe area isn't equipped with AC due to the cooler, dry nights. Bears are an ongoing issue in the Tahoe area, the best thing you can do in that scenario is... More

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
