I have found that over the years finding a place to stay that feels like Tahoe, like Old Tahoe is difficult. . We have stayed at other places on North Shore and wanted to find a place we could stay at regularly without going broke...we found the Sands as we were driving around North Shore.. it looked homey and enticing......

Tahoe Sands Resort has a special place in my heart, it is somewhere I go when I want to relax and enjoy the incredible beauty that abounds at North Shore Lake Tahoe. It is what I think of when I think of the “Real Lake Tahoe” experience. Lake Tahoe was not always High End Resorts, gambling and highly commercial touristy... More

Although we only stayed one night, we found this 2-BR suite fit our purposes - and budget! Easy access to the beach, a hot tub, and walking distance to restaurants made the stay simple. Ten minutes to the Safeway, 20 to NorthStar, and 30 to Truckee. Not fancy, could use some updating ... but clean and slept 6 easily.

We were assigned to the Tahoe Sands Resort as part of a social media discount coupon. This review has nothing to do with this process, which assigned us to the Tahoe Sands through a misleading description. Part of the assignment required us to sit through a 90 minute time share presentation. We were placed in one of the "marketing" units,... More

Clean bungalows, good mattresses, beautiful views & beach access. Great location, Has pool but needs more amenities. Internet connection is spotty. Staff is helpful, No restaurant or fitness center, but plenty of local attractions

I had my grandkids come to visit me for the 1st time and had seen Tahoe Sands on a previous trip. We arrived there early and the desk had me check in. They gave me a car pass to let us start to enjoy the property. Kids loved the beach and the playground. I called the front desk at 4... More

If there are a lot of you, and your accommodations don't matter, this place may be okay. However, beware of the insides. These buildings are from the 60's, and most look pretty much the same. A few have been renovated, but the low ceilings and small rooms are just that. With all the gorgeous lake views, you would think someone... More

We stayed here this past weekend on business. We checked out room 403, which is right next to the hillside, and directly beneath a local residence (non-resort). As we started to unload the car and move our personal items into the cabin, I noticed a car that was parked directly in front of the cabin on the north side. The... More

We went during fourth of July, so it was packed, and this was the only place that had a vacancy in the area. We stayed for one night, and overall the rooms were fine. It was about 85 degrees outside, and it was HOT, HOT, HOT in the room. There's no AC and when that sun starts to set, the... More

We stayed at Tahoe Sands over a few years and keep coming back because its quiant and great value on weekends in ski season. There are motel style units with kitchenette and there the cabins on the sand. My preference is the cabin which is larger than it looks. I can't find pics of the cabin though. The cabin's interior...
