We have stayed in the Tahoe area many times for family ski vacations. This is the first time we have stayed right on the lake. We stayed for Thanksgiving. We arrived late after driving up from the Bay area. The room we entered was not very nice and I quickly realized it did not have an oven and I was... More

We have stayed at Tahoe Sands multiple times over the last 8 years. The setting is fantastic, with many units on the shore of Lake Tahoe with gorgeous views and a sandy beach. Many of the units have different floor plans. I personally love the cabins rather than the units in a more motel-like setting. Over the last couple of... More

We have stayed here many times. The room this time had a dirty carpet and a kitchen chair that somebody had obviously taken outside, smoked in, and brought back in. That coupled with Tahoe now viewing Thanksgiving as HIGH SEASON, which is ridiculous, makes the value not so great. High season? Too cold for the lake and no snow in... More

Staff was extremely friendly, the room was so adorable and cozy, great amenities and great view. The bed was so comfortable I have never slept so well! Cute little furnace and kitchen had plenty of utensils for cooking. Would definitely stay here again!

My last stay at the resort was in October 2014. I love being there during the times when it is not so hectic. I enjoyed sitting on the deck during the afternoon, sipping a glass of wine & enjoying the stunning beauty of the lake and surrounding mountains. I love walking on and relaxing on the private beach, which is... More

This resort is older and in need of renovations, but the location is why we stay here. It has the best beach in Tahoe and is a convenient location close to other activities around the lake. I have been coming here every summer for 26 years. The summer months are busier, so it was actually nice to come in November... More

This place is fantastic! We'll be arriving back here for our second trip the day after Thanksgiving and my husband and I can't wait. The staff is extraordinarily friendly and the rooms are very comfortable. We stayed in a studio on the lakeside our first time and this year we'll be in a 1 bedroom. This resort is located in...

We spend a week annually at Tahoe Sands and just completed our 20th annual stay in mid October. It is a timeshare facility in an aging complex in an absolutely stunning North Shore location with its own beach. An elaborate plan to demolish it and build a new complex was shot down by the area's implacably hostile planning authorities and... More

The best place there is to just relax stress free. Market is close (not walking distance) as are some really good restaurants. Unbeatable view of the lake and the resort has plenty of water toys for your use. Although it's an older resort it is well maintained. The units are being remodeled one at a time and although its not... More

Great location-nice beach, but resort is in bad shape. Our unit felt like 5th grade summer camp. ABSOLUTELY FILTHY carpet. It obviously hasn't been cleaned since ski season (2012?) We asked the next day about changing to another unit and we were told they were full. Not true. There have been almost no cars all week on the mountain side,... More
