Been going to Tahoe since I was born and stayed in a variety of motels, lodges, and hotels. For the price, the Tamarack Lodge was by far the most enjoyable stay. The family who ran the lodge was polite and friendly. I had booked a "poker" room for my girlfriend and I, but when we checked in, we were offered... More

The very rude lady at Mother Nature's Inn gave away our room and was extremely unhelpful about it. Thankfully the very nice lady here was extremely helpful. We stayed in a private cabin with our own porch. Wonderful woods setting and very clean room.

I stayed here for one night as part of a trip round California. I checked in slightly early but was pleasantly surprised to be given one on the cabins as the room I'd booked wasn't ready. This was a really nice touch especially as it was the first night of my trip. Located about a mile from Tahoe City it... More

This was our first trip to Lake Tahoe, and we loved it! The stay at Tamarack Lodge was very enjoyable. The owners are very pleasant and made sure we had a good stay. Their advice about things to do at Tahoe was invaluable. Although there is no lake view, the rooms are well-equipped with a nice kitchenette. We will definitively... More

Spent weekend here as a off the beaten path place to get away. Family owned. Lodge has a typical motel type rooms, a family cabin and several smaller "cardroom" cabins. The place is located on the north shore of Lake Tahoe about half way from the Nevada stateline and Squaw Valley. No Lake View. Northshore casno are about twenty minutes... More

I just got back last night from Lake Tahoe. This was our first visit there. I truly enjoyed the service at the Tamarack Lodge, the room was very clean, I did not have a problem with the water, (maybe because it is summertime). The room had everything I needed. The kitchennette had pots and pans, cups, plates and glasses, a... More

Spent 2 nights here over the Labor Day weekend, for my first visit to Tahoe. The rooms were a bit dark and got quite chilly at night - I slept in my sweatshirt and socks. The water did not get hotter than lukewarm in the morning, but was hot for our afternoon post-beach showers. The location isn't too bad, about... More

We've stayed here a few times, the most recent was July 2009 and had a wonderful time. Very friendly Managers! I would highly recommend The Tamarack!

We love staying at the lodge! The short nice walk to the lake is great, it is quiet and peaceful on the grounds. I have stayed in the motel rooms and a cabin in the back and was very happy with both. The large cabin in the front is beautiful. Sitting around the fire at night is great! The Inn... More

I have stayed here 10 or more times and have never had any problems. The rooms all have fridges, microwaves and stove tops. The buildings are old, but they did remodel some years ago and put in double pane windows. If you're a big sissy and scared of a spider you might like the hilton better, but if you know... More
