Plump Jacks is ideally situated in Squaw Village and is the Best choice for a small high-end boutique hotel. Clean, comfortable & quiet rooms with excellent food & bar in the charming lobby. Complete with parking, jacuzzi, massage, gym, business center and more just steps to Squaw Valley. Can't wait to go back.

It's a great place to stay. Food, drinks and service are great. Location is also terrific. It's no ski in and ski out but very close to it. Rooms are nice. I would recommend it. You really can't go wrong.

This hotel NEVER fails to deliver! Hands down the best spot in Squaw Valley. We've been returning to this hotel for 16 years, and it only gets better! Excellent amenities, a professsional yet, super down-to-earth-friendly staff, a rediculous (delish) bar and restaurant with some the of best food, cocktails (and wine list) in Tahoe! From it's amazing location, to the... More

PlumbJack's is a great intimate setting on a big mountain with great access to the mountain. Great dining room and great wine selection. Being dog friendly is also very important to my family. They have great accommodations for dogs. It is my go to spot at Squaw Valley

I walked in and was greeted by a handsome man shoveling snow (that was nice). Found the cafe easily enough on my own. Walked in and was greeted and asked if it was my first time here, told me the buffet style breakfast. The food selection was good.

Very convenient location next to the tram at Squaw and private parking. Bar and restaurant very nice. Food was great. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a handicap accessible room which was different. Room was comfortable with all the amenities.

Plumpjack is best place to gather apres ski for food, fun and friends. Great atmosphere with excellent menu and cozy yet lively ambiance. If you are in Squaw, you have to plan a stop in this spot. Rooms are a bit tired, outdated but service and staff are top notch.

Great location and nice staff, but the property lacked certain amenities and ambiance. The room was a bit loud and blow dryer did not work. I was hoping to work while there and the room lacked a desk or good common area for working between activities. That being said, the ambiance was very "mountain lodge" like, which had a bit... More

Plump Jack Inn at Squaw Valley has always had the advantage of an exceptional location right at the base of a great ski hill. However, the expire date on the facilities has long since passed. The team is solid and willing but the old creaky building just doesn't warrant the cost of the stay.
