For winter Ski Vacation stays, the SVL would be 4-5 stars based on location, however for a spring/summer/fall stay, its at best 3 star. It was clean and convienient, however, a bit misleading in room description. Booked a "one Bed room Condo" over the Memorial day holiday and was given condo 220. It was clean and well maintained, the kitchen... More

We lucked out having vacation during the last snowfall. We were able to get a decent rate through Hotels.com for a three night stay. Location was great, right next to the village with convenient parking in the garage. They have carts so you can bring all your things and equipment to your room. We stayed at the very end of...

We were there in early May. Too late for snow and too early for the summer activities but this would be an amazing location in either season. Walking distance to the shopping village and tram to the top of the mountain in summer. Ski lifts right out the back door in winter. We had the studio, which was quite comfortable.

Simple kitchenette rooms with extra pull out beds work well for families. Hot tubs and spa area a plus for rainy or cold days. When snow is at lower elevations this is a true ski in ski out hotel. No breakfasts but the Plump Jack down the street has an excellent all you can eat buffet even if it's a... More

From check in to departure it was one of the best experiences I have had at any ski resort. The staff was friendly and very helpful and I felt at home the minute I stepped in the door. It was convenient to everything and excellent amenities while not going over the top. The room prices were very reasonable and I... More

Everything is close, the facilities although aged are in great shape, and every staff member I dealt with could not have been more helpful.. House keeping was the best i have seen. My kids and grand kids had the time of their life. AS first timers several of my friends had recommended Squaw and I am glad we listened.

We have NOT ONE single complaint about this place! My husband and I stayed 6 nights this March, and could not have been more pleased with everything here. We were in room 120, first floor at very end of hallway, so it was super quiet, no traffic in front of our room. This unit was huge! Big bedroom, big LR,... More

We started our annual ski trip 4yrs ago. Our 3rd time back to Lake Tahoe but first time staying at the Squaw Valley lodge because we didn't feel like driving to the slopes this time! We booked a standard room but got upgraded to a condo suite! It was a sweet suite! You get a free locker rental when you... More

All the reviews here paint a pretty good picture. Location is perfect and our studio was clean and comfy, possibly updated more recently than some others. What I didn't read here is how you can hear everything above you. We were on the second floor and consisted asking for a new room at 11 pm because people above us wouldn't... More

This resort needs updating - we had serious problems with the heating and air-conditioning. On the positive the rooms are cleaned everyday, convenient parking and great ski-in ski-out location. The staff especially the cleaning staff are excellent and very friendly.
