Perfect place to stay when trying to ski at China Peak. What shocked us the most was the friendly and helpful staff. Darrel the hotel manager went above and beyond as a host; he even invited us into his room. The current owner needs to work on upkeeping the rooms. We had a hotplate, but we would enjoy a stove...

The property is REALLY convenient if you are skiing at Sierra Summit. Other than that, it has nothing going for it. The rooms are spacious but hardly modern. Service is close to non-existent, and the reservation process was a complete nightmare (they work through a rental agency in Shaver Lake that uses prehistoric booking systems, generally doesn't have its act...

Sierra Summit was full, so we opted for a big room with kitchenette at Tamarack. We slept fine and managed to cook enough, but we'll look long and hard for somewhere else before going back. The room smelled of sour mold, possibly because the carpet (in a color that would hide ANYTHING) around the commode was permanently damp. The hotel... More
