I am NOT a skier, but if I were this would be my ideal place to stay. As a Bus Operator, I stay in many hotels, some good some bad, this one truly deserves an excellent rating!! However, the only thing that kind disappoints me is there are no restaurants or other shops other than the 7-Eleven. Bring a fat... More

We spent four nights at the lodge and loved it. Our room was in the main building on the third floor. We had a kitchenette, which was great for making breakfast before skiing. The staff is incredible! They're friendly, extremely helpful and know the area very well. The location is fantastic, you can ski in and out of the property.... More

Had a fantastic week at the Squaw Valley Lodge. Huge rooms with kitchenettes are perfect for a skiing trip and the sauna, pool area was ideal after a day on the slopes. Super helpful staff as well. A winner all round.

Stayed for just one night and was wowed by the service. The hotel is made up of individually owned condos, ours was was screaming to be renovated. Stayed in a studio, can't beat the convenience, stumbling distance to just about everything. Nice pool/spa, great gym. No other amenities to speak of. The internet was rather slow, couldn't stream. Why 4... More

Just spent three nights at this location, internet connection is pitiful. Decor is old, late eighties if I had to guess. The hotel is close to the snow but then so is the Squaw Creek Resort which costs the same and is 4 stars and way nicer. The Squaw Valley Lodge has none of the niceties you would expect from... More

The location to the slope is as close as you can get. Price was reasonable for holiday season. However, the room was very minimal. The heat sounds like a train coming through everytime it came on. The hot water in the room was scorching hot. If you have very young kids, you have to be careful. The water can cook... More

Our stay at the Squaw Valley Lodge was delightful in every way you can think. Everything was great making our ski vacation even more enjoyable and exceeded our expectations which were already good. The location couldn't be better - literally! You can actually ski to your building from one of the lifts or walk a really short path to the... More

Stayed at the lodge during a conference in August. Myself, wife, and 3 children rented a 2 bed 2 bath unit. We weren't given particulars of the unit due to each one's being appointed slightly differently, but got everything we asked for. Bonus was that the couch in the main room contained a pullout bed which was important. Bathrooms were... More
