We stayed here in August and man did I want to love this place. Our room was 102C (I'm pretty sure). We arrived around midnight after a 5 hour drive from the Bay Area which sucked, but the front desk agent at check in was super friendly and welcoming. Our room was very basic, with two double beds. Some issues... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at our hotel. I am glad to hear that you found our staff helpful and friendly, but I am sorry to hear that the room did not meet your expectations.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Property is outstanding with lots to do. Tucked in the forest it's a hidden jewel. Breakfast was great, it had something for everyone. Pool and hot tub were a kids hit

I have organized a number of small, biannual scientific conferences at Granlibakken over the years and always find the facility, staff, food, and atmosphere wonderful. My group keeps coming back and we are scheduled to be there again in 2017.

It was disgusting. walked back and told the registration folks that we would not stay. they promised not to charge us any more money, but they charged an additional... More

It's hard to rate this property because we loved the location & surroundings, the staff, and the food which was included in the price of our conference. The bed was comfortable, the shuttle service from the airport was on time, and the food included lots of delicious vegetarian options which we appreciated. The room however was outdated and in bad...

We had a wonderful time. Clean rooms, very friendly staff, delicious and generous buffet breakfast. the zip line adventure and staff were a "10." The only complaint is that the coffee provided in the room was not very good but was offset by the ability to take a coffee to go during the breakfast buffet. Great pool and hot tub,... More

I enjoyed every day at Granlibakken because staff made it possible.I arrived with a disability and was attended whenever I asked for assistance. I was told this was available,but had fear it would not be true. Thanks for the special accommodations, especially the golf cart support since I use walking cane support. Thanks, thanks, thanks.

Very nice area and surroundings. Comfortable room and bed, Quiet location, good buffet breakfast, and helpful staff. Would be a great location for families with young children. Would return if we visited the Tahoe area again.

The price we paid is not equal to the quality of our room. We attended a conference and stayed 3 nights, our meals were included in the price. Our room was a studio with a full kitchen. We paid $1200.00. For this price, $400 a night, I expected the very best. Instead we got a moldy shower curtain, filthy bathroom... More

We appreciate your time in providing us feedback about your stay. We apologize that you found our price point did not provide the value you desired. We are constantly improving the property through our homeowners and our maintenance team. Your conference actually determines the cost per day, not Granlibakken. None of our rooms are $400 a night, so this includes... More
