Beds/linens excellent, very clean. Good breakfast and I stay at a lot of hotels. Nice fireplace in the room. Quiet. Priced right. Quick in and out of our hotel room. Right off the road, but the rooms set off away from the traffic.

Immediately upon walking into the reception area, it is easy to sense this family's pride in their hotel... You are directly across the street from the lake with several restaurants and a pizza place within walking distance. All of kings beach is within walking distance for those with a bit more energy, or literally a 1 minute drive. North Shore... More

Overall, we really enjoyed out stay at Firelite Lodge. We were in Tahoe with our two kids, so the two bedroom king with pull out twin sofa was very convenient, as was the little kitchenette (which is really just a sink, fridge, microwave and countertop, but it was great for storing and preparing snacks.) The free breakfast was very basic:... More

The room that we stayed was very nice and clean. A carpet was new. It looked like the hotel rooms were recently remodeled. The bathroom was shiny. A gas fireplace in a room is used as a heater at the same time. It was quiet at night. Location is great. The lake is just across a street.

We stayed two nights and had a large light airy room with balcony and lake view. There was also a fireplace and a small kitchenette area. There was a complimentary breakfast in the lobby each morning.

This was one of our best stays in California, the lady gave us a wonderful room with a view of the lake, and a lovely fire in the evenings, we stayed for three nights and loved it. Very clean and spacious. Breakfast was cramped but very good, fresh fruit salad! Great location in a quiet pretty area, we walked the... More

Right across the street from a good beach in Tahoe Vista. Would stay there again. Nothing fancy, but included a breakfast in the lobby and we used the hot tub and pool. Bed was firm, got a bit warm one night, but used the fan and that helped a lot. The staff allowed us to use their hiking book. Went... More

Firelite Lodge provided us with a nice clean room, great location at a reasonable price. We will definately stay there again but we will make sure to get one of the rooms that face towards the lake with the small balcony.

The Firelite is clean and well located. They do have a hot tub, but no towels or robes, so you need to cross parking lot in your bathing suit. Staff were polite, but not welcoming. It is not bad for a motel, but that is all it is.

We stayed 2 nights and found the accommodation to be really nice and comfy. We'd opted to spend a little extra and have a room overlooking the lake with balcony.... Good move, the room was spacious and really nicely refurbished, very clean...View great, and in warmer weather it would be lovely to take advantage of the little balcony with table... More
