What better way to spend New Year's then at beautiful lake Tahoe. if you're looking for good old Lake Tahoe charm then the Tahoe Sands is the place for you! Cozy comfortable units, great surroundings and beautiful views, not to mention nearby amenities like skiing at world class ski resorts or other winter activities. No matter the season, Tahoe sands...

Awesome location right on the lake. The resort is a bit dated (even with the resent improvements). Since there was almost zero snow (in February), we had spring like conditions and enjoyed walking along the lake front at the back of the resort. The resort location is terrific as will with great access to the lakes northern ski resorts. there's... More

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

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am sorry to hear that your carpet was dirty. We are replacing flooring in many units from carpet to handscraped bamboo. Carpet is a challenge with all of the sand, lawn, and high traffic so we are working toward eliminating frustrations like yours in the future. Thanksgiving holiday is... 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
