We LIVE here, and didn't realize how lovely this lodge is. Had family come from Texas to stay. The pool area is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and clean with microwaves and fridges. The staff were ALL friendly, and it was VERY affordable. The location is perfect-between San Joaquin County and Lake Tahoe and other attractions as well.

We stopped in here while on The Great American Walkabout. The rooms were spacious and had high ceilings, which made us feel much more comfortable. It is tucked away right off Highway 88, and is a short drive from Jackson, Ca or Lake Tahoe. Its a great place to stay when visiting Tahoe as it is quieter and more affordable.... More

I was there Sept. 12, 13 2014. I loved this place. It was very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The pool was excellent and they have a hot tub too. It just had a great feel to it, would definitely come back!!

I showed up here on Tuesday (Jan. 29th 2013) evening, about 7pm, and the hotel was closed. Sign on both doors say the hotel is closed Monday-Wednesday and if I'd like to book a room I have to go across the street to the bar, and they'll call someone to come book me a room. I have to tell you,... More

Yes, the pool is still out. Judging by reviews it's been out almost a year. From what I've learned, it was a simple fix of just draining the pool, cleaning it, and fixing a filter, but the owner (who is never on site) was very lax about getting it done, and the wonderful manager Heather, couldn't do anything without the...

I am planning to stay at the lodge (5th year in a row) on 9/3 and 9/4/12 for a golf outing. I was disappointed to find no one on the phones before 1:00pm on Tues, Wed, Thurs. The pool and spa are still shut down (today is 7/12/12). It has been out of service since at least Jan. of 2012.... More

It was barely ok. The pool does not work nor look like it has been in use for years. Very quiet, reasonably priced and secluded. Everything else was booked so beggers can't be choosers. I would not return though.

I have been going here for a number of years now and my last visit was very poor. This was in the fall on 2011. I made reservations and asked about the conditions of the pool and hot tubs, as the outdoor environment with those amenities is what I really enjoy the most. I was told that everything was fine...

I stayed here for several weeks while working on a project nearby. As it was for business I was offered a reduced corporate rate from the already reasonable regular rate. The discount is well appreciated. It's conveniently located for anyone working between Jackson and the High Sierra. Groceries, restaurants, fuel, grog, and even hardware stores are all nearby but those... More

Best bang for the buck in the area! Great location on Hwy. 88 in Pioneer, California. The rooms are situated away from the road and so it was very quiet. A serene sitting with mature landscaping, a clean pool and hot spa. The rooms have either a small patio or balcony with table and chairs and face the woods (away... More
