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

Pros: + Location at base of Squaw valley ; short walk to the shops and lifts + Apartment style with fully equipped kitchen = convenience + Free parking/ wifi + Not too noisy Cons: - Pool area seems to be always packed with families and kids - Rooms are slightly dated (90s), but still OK

I spent two nights at the Squaw Valley Lodge while attending a family reunion. The rooms were clean and neat, well laid out for our large group. Maybe the rooms are not the most modern but they were very quiet and I found my two-story condo to be exceptionally comfortable. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and responsive. Everyone in our... More

As I understand it, in the high season every room at all these lodges is booked so there's not a lot of incentive for them to invest a whole lot in upgrades. The lobby, pool and other common areas are pleasing, but the units (except for more modern TV's) are stuck in 1981 from a furnishings point of view. Our... More

I usually always review trip advisor prior to booking any hotel but I did not for this booking. We wanted to stay at Squaw Valley and SV Lodge allowed us to do so for a decent price based off my Squaw / Alpine annual ski pass. We drove up for the Brews Funk Jazz Festival in the Squaw Village. We... More

I stayed here during a conference at the nearly resort, which had steep prices. I found this lodge to be clean and mostly modern. The furnishings were in good condition-, and the rooms were much larger than your standard hotel room. All had at least a small kitchen, thus allowing you to prepare a meal or two. I believe the...

We stayed during the week and weekend this summer and thoroughly enjoyed Squaw Valley more than we expected. The Squaw Valley Lodge was comfortable - not fancy, but nice. We were in a 2BR suite with a decent kitchen and comfortable seating area, which we booked at the last moment. Perhaps because of that we were in unit 700 which... More

I have stayed here the last 4 nights at $350 per night. I go in this morning to get a newspaper and was told I was not on the "list" to get a newspaper. I was then directed to a local store about 1/4 mile away which didn't have a current paper either. How much would it cost this Hotel... More

We strive for customer service excellence every day and are sorry that our newspaper program was not communicated to you properly. In the past we did deliver daily newspapers to every guest staying at Squaw Valley Lodge. We noticed with this program was significant waste of leftover newspapers from guests not interested in the newspaper. Our current program is to... More

I would not stay there if it was super cheap , which it is not. Very out dated - lots of things need to be fixed. No air. Musty smell : ( Only thing good about this place is the front desk people I feel for them.
