We were pleasantly surprised to find such a lovely motel in the heart of North Lake Tahoe. The entire room has been upgraded with a modern touch. The bathroom is lovely, beds comfortable and soft with fluffy down comforters. There is a fireplace in the room making it very romantic and cozy. We have enjoyed our stay very much!

I love this hidden gem in Tahoe Vista! The rooms are so clean and comfortable and the location is perfect! The lake is right across the street and Northstar ski resort is a close 7 minutes drive from the lodge!! The owners are really accommodating with letting us good places to eat in the area that are kid friendly( we... More

We stayed at the Firelite Lodge last summer on our annual trip to Lake Tahoe and were pleasantly surprised! We had poor accommodations down the road towards Incline Village the year before but the Firelite was a real delight. Our second floor corner unit faced the lake and was quite private. There was a nice continental breakfast included each morning... More

Excellent location, great value. We stayed here the weekend of 10/3-10/5 and enjoyed it very much. The room is clean, spacious, and the fireplace is just the right touch (it's also the heater for the room) I loved the patio area. The bathroom was nice but the sink had zero counter space - that was a bit annoying but it... More

Upon entering near 10 PM, the receptionist finished helping another couple, and then greeted us professionally and efficiently got us situated. We spent 4 nights here, and each night was quiet and peaceful. The first night we had a ground floor room 2 queens, no view, updated decor with good, solid furnishings, a very comfortable room though a bit cool.... More

Spent 2 nights at this hotel. The family that runs it is very nice. The location is across from a lakeside park. This is a very clean and small (~24 rooms) hotel which is to my liking. We stayed two midweek nights after Labor day and the room was $80 plus tax. There are three levels and I chose the... More

The room is spartan, of course, spotless as well. Bed is soft and comfortable. The view on third floor is amazing. Bathroom is small but functional. nice shower head too. Decent wifi, a must since AT&T connection in Tahoe a bit sketchy. There are two windows at entrance and bathroom high above and unfortunately introduce too much of the corridor... More

We choose this lodge after we left another a day early. We made phone calls and were fortunate to find this gem at a good rate. Across from the lake and a beach, some rooms had a view. Ours didn't but it was a very good pool side room. Staff was excellent. Room lacked A/C but they provided a small... More

Right on the main road, across the street from the lake, though the beach there is by means the best beach in Tahoe, it does have public bathrooms and so on and it's an excellent location nonetheless. You can see the lake from some of the rooms. The room was basic but very clean and comfortable, with a good mattress,... More
