I noticed that an earlier reviewer complained about the little windows near the top of the door, so I paid attention to that when we arrived and realized someone would have to be at least 7 feet tall to see in those windows from outside the room. :-) The heat worked well and there were extra blankets too. It's in... More

We stayed at here for two weeks while doing some cross country skiing at Royal Gorge and Tahoe Donner. The manager was really helpful and friendly in allowing us to get some Christmas packages delivered before and after our stay (we were travelling from Australia), reducing the stress of getting Christmas presents organised for the kids. The kitchen was really... More

Pros - Cleaner than most "ski lodge/condo" places! Well appointed with DishTV, kitchen supplies, good sized fridge, boot drier. Comfy beds you actually want to sleep on. No human interaction required for check in/out (You are emailed a door code at time of reservation, great for midnight arrivals like us). Priced very well for proximity to the ski areas like...

We are just back from 1week of ski at Sugar Bowl, and this time we were looking for an affordable lodging. We find Kingvale lodge offers very attractive $850 for a 800sqft 2beds fully equipped condo for 6 nights. The rooms are super clean, everything was functional and well organized. It's like having your own place in Tahoe without the... More

Stayed in Unit #6 (one bedroom) Need to know: 1) Limited kitchenette Full refridgerator and freezer. Two-burner electric stove. Microwave. Coffee machine. toaster. Utensils, bowls, pans, griddle, etc. No oven. No fan/ventilation (except window) => This was just fine for simple meals. I would have been nervous trying to sear meat without any fan => Bring your own cooking spray/oil... More

This place would have been okay if the on-site managers had actually been on site and reliable for us. The units are nothing special (thin walls, 1990s appliances and electronics), but it's not a dump, and it's in a convenient location for snow sports. When we stayed, however, the on-site managers were gone the whole 4 days. So we were... More

This is the first negative comment we have ever had about our facility which has become a destination of hundreds of repeat visitors, particularly families skiing at Sugar Bowl Ski Resort and the Donner Summit area or the...

Had every intention of making it home to the SF BAy Area from Tahoe last Fri, had it not been for the 24" blizzard, 20 car pile up on I 80, and 80 consequently being closed in both directions. Was stranded on Donner Pass, nervous I'd need to sleep in my car. The Kingvale Lodge was recommended to me by... More

I had to review the Kingvale Lodge because we stayed their last winter and I am making another reservation for this winter. Before finding the Kingvale Lodge we usually drove over the Donner Summit and stayed in Truckee. We ski at Sugar Bowl and tube at Soda Springs. The Kingvale Lodge is about three miles away from Soda springs and... More
