I don't understand the negative reviews of the Meadows. It is not new, no marble tubs but it's clean, functional and the service at Kirkwood has always been great. Nice Jacuzzi here. We have been coming here for almost 20 years staying in many of these privately owned units and sometimes in the hotel. Everything has worked (except once a... More

I paid for a room at the 'kirkwood resort', depicted in the photos on hotels.com and located adjacent to the ski lifts. Instead of staying in the lodge, I was placed in 'the meadows', a completely different building a 1/2 mile away. The meadows is a low-end condo building, not a hotel. There's no staff there. My room was connected... More

Terrible logging. We've got a freezing room, window was left open at 10F. Everything is shabby and poor, its comparable to a mountain hut I've been at 15 years ago in Bulgaria, middle of nowhere; that was bit better though. Hope the mountain itself makes up for it all tomorrow :) Anyway, this place is not recommended.

Great location. Wifi, common area, hot tub. Excellent views of either the meadow or the mountains. I've stayed in many different Kirkwood condos and these no doubt are the best value. Short walk to the lifts. Can't wait to come back in the winter and take advantage of the wood burning fire place...assuming winter ever returns to Tahoe ;)

I've stayed at the Meadows on several different occasions. In the Winter you can walk about two hundred yards to the chair lift or cross country ski out the back side of the building in the meadow. Parking underground is nice when it snows and the building offers free firewood for building a fire. There's a hot tub, although it... More

I stayed during the summer months in "The Meadows" complex. My hotel room was really a spare bedroom to someone's vacation condo. The room was adequate except it lacked air condioninig and had no wi-fi as advertised. Pros: Great area, access to lots of outdoor recreation opportunities. Cons: 1) Unnessary summer resort fee. What exactly did it pay for? Even... More

Kirkwood is one of the greatest mid-size ski areas, especially for better skiers. The Meadows, however, is an older project and shows it. Peeling floor covering, laughably inadequate kitchen equipment (an oven, but no baking pan...), weak heating system, no wifi in our unit, notwithstanding the representation to the contrary (wifi was fine in the lobby)... All of which would... More

Privately owned, so unless you know it is just luck. We have rented the same studio for years, 203 has an awesome view of the meadow, updated furniture, and a wall bed so we didn't look at a queen bed during the day. Bathroom not updated, but not a big deal. The meadows has on site hot tub, which most... More

I've stayed in several condo-type lodgings at various ski resorts, so I suppose I had certain expectations. Compared to other similar places I've stayed, I was disappointed in The Meadows. These are individually owned condo-rentals, so the quality may vary from unit to unit. We stayed in a one-bedroom. It was very small and the decor and furnishings were stained,... More

This overpriced, extremely cramped facility hires know-nothing front-desk workers, especially in off-season. They turn off the heat in early June and expect you to use a space heater to stay warm. Fitness Center was closed. No restaurants open in off-season. Try Caples Lake Resort, Kit Carson Lodge, or Sorensen's Resort instead. They even charged me "trip insurance" against my will!
