It was off season June 13, 2015. There for a Tough Mudder run at Northstar Tahoe. The condo was very spacious two bedroom, two bath with queen couch in living room, fully stocked kitchen with utensils for cooking and eating. Used the washer/dryer to clean our tough mudder clothes, which was nice to have in the condo. Staff was friendly,... More

Went for the Memorial weekend, so advance reservations were required. The suite room was large enough with a loft. The beds were large and comfy. The seating area was also good. However the kitchen area was a bit tight since it was built around the path from the main entrance to the sitting area. The bathrooms were large but the... More

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
