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

Perfect spot for our stay. Right across the street for the lake. I recommend the 3rd floor as we had a lovely view of the lake from our room. Quite and relaxing area. It was one of the cleanest small hotels we have ever stayed in. I will say that on the down side, the beds were extremely soft which... More

This was my first time on north shore. We booked 4 rooms for the Tough Mudder. The hotel was great, staff was great, location was great. You are walking distance to stores, and restaurants. South shore ifs only a short car ride away

Really enjoyed our stay. Our hosts were congenial & helpful. The room was very comfortable & very clean. The lodge was conveniently located. Loved the fruit salad on the breakfast bar. Would stay at Firelite Lodge again.

Nice place perfectly located. Kids loved the pool and hot tub. Beach across the street. Having back problems I steer clear of too soft a beds. These were soft. I slept on floor. Didn't mention it to owner because I slept good and woke ready for fun. Rest of family slept good in beds. Have stayed here before and maybe... More

A great little hotel with one problem. The maid staff. The place is nicely kept, clean, modernized and reasonably priced. The maid staff did a bad job on day 1 as they did not even clean the room. Beds unmade, trash everywhere. Plus they stole our baby bottles and an expensive thermos. No, I can't prove they stole them but... More

Right across from lake. Walking distance to restaurants. Recently renovated with comfy beds, good sized flat screen tv. Bright bathroom. Fridge, microwave and coffee maker. What more can you ask for? Pool and spa (didn't use) looked clean and inviting

Pleasant staff. Rooms have recently been updated. Nice and clean. Fireplace, two comfy queen beds, fridge, coffee machine and microwave. Nice new flat screen tv that is large enough to watch from bed (some motel screens are ridiculously small!) We would definitely stay here again.

Don't let the street-side sign fool you - the Firelite Lodge is bright, modern, and comfy inside. Tahoe Vista isn't quite as walkable as Tahoe City, but there are still a few restaurants within walking distance (El Sancho next door has great burritos for lunch), and you can't beat the beach and kayak rentals across the street. The breakfast spread... More
