This is our second stay at Firelite. We come to Lake Tahoe every year and usually rent a condo but this year we only had 3 nights and decided to go back to Firelite. Prices are very reasonable, there are rooms with views of the lake. The rooms have everything you need, refrigerator, micro, flat screen with HBO. They are... More

I'll jump to the conclusion: this is a great option for staying in Tahoe, especially if you are moderately budget-conscious and/or have children in tow. Don't be fooled by the outdated sign; the facility has been otherwise updated nicely. We stayed for a full 8 days to combine vacation and a cycling event. I'll mimic what others have said: 3...

This is more of an upgraded motel on two levels than a “lodge” Be aware there is no elevator, so you'll be carrying any luggage up and down a flight and a half of stairs. Also, be aware that the rear parking lot is edged with large rocks that may not be read correctly by parking sensors. Oops! We stayed... More

Nice, quaint lodge with a beautiful beach directly across the street. The lodge itself is three stories high, there is a heated pool and a large separate hot tub. Our room was spacious, clean and had a nice little electric fireplace and kitchenette. Plenty of storage throughout. No resort fees = Free Wi-Fi and continental breakfast.

Very clean, obviously recently renovated. Nice bathroom and room decor. Fireplace, TV, microwave and fridge. Space well laid out. Helpful owner. Continental breakfast included wonderful fruit salad. Public beach park right across (busy) street. Fabulous value!!

I thought it was a nice room. Little awkward with sink outside of bathroom don't think I've seen something like that but I didn't mind. Room was clean and next to pool and also right in front of Lake. I'd definitely stay here again. Price was good too.

Firelite Lodge is a clean, modern motel in a great location. There was no welcome at all upon arrival. In fact, arriving at about 6pm we found reception deserted. After ringing the bell for a few minutes, we banged on the door behind reception to find the receptionist (owners son) asleep in bed. When he made it to the desk,... More

Found the Firelight on Trip Advisor. Inexpensive compared to other locations in the area. My family of 4 is pleasantly surprised. Large clean room with 2 queen beds, fireplace, modern bathroom. Breakfast is delicious. .... Loved the fresh fruit. Liked it so much, my wife is discussing staying a second night.

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
