We stayed at the Squaw Valley Lodge for a running camp and had a great stay. We had a two bedroom, two bath condo on the second floor. It has a balcony and a full kitchen with a dishwasher and a washer and dryer. It is very comfortable and nice. The people are great and really helpful. Perfect location right... More

My friends and I rented a 1 bedroom condo and it was perfect for the 3 of us. Our room actually had a Murphy bed, a pull out couch and a queen bed so we were pleasantly surprised. The kitchen had all of the pots/pans/dishes that you could need. My only complaint is that there was not much storage to... More

We booked for the 4th of July holiday and we couldn't be in a better place! Tahoe was packed and transit was awful to go around the lake. The lodge is by the Village, so options of restaurants, bar and shopping all in a walking distance. No need to go out with the crowd. Was a great stay!

The front desk staff did a great job finding us a room on Saturday night of Wanderlust (entire area was packed). The were very friendly. We paid $285 for the night, and this would have been agreeable; however, I awoke with 20+ bug bites on my shoulders. I strongly suspect that they are bed bug bites. When checking out, I... More

I am very sorry for your experience at Squaw Valley Lodge. First of all and you are correct, the response at the Front Desk did not convey the urgency or empathy warranted in this circumstance, and for that I apologize. We did have the sofa and the entire condominium thoroughly inspected and there is no evidence of bedbug activity. Regardless,... More

We booked here last minute for the 4th of July weekend. We loved the beautiful location and being away from the crowds. Only 10 min. to Tahoe City. (The drive back from seeing Fireworks was not that bad). Our room was a studio and it was fine for 2 nights (family of 4) but with no a/c, our room got... More

Studio had lots of space, working windows & furnace fan allowed us to air out the place - we found the bldg to have a weird smell & would have left immediately if the room could have been cancelled - they required full payment in advance. Vintage 1980's? microwave was indicative of the place, outdated countertops, etc. No ice machine... More

Thank you for your feedback. The "spaciousness" of condominiums at Squaw Valley Lodge is a big favorite of our guests. Perhaps you reached out to our Front Desk upon discovering the smell you described as weird? If so, I would expect staff to exhaust every option to mitigate your discomfort. My apologies if this did not happen. We are in... More

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...
