4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Excellent room on quiet corner, recently updated interior. Queen beds were good once we rotated them around, otherwise your head was lower than your feet. Did not get to use pool, free breakfast good with waffle maker, milk, OJ, etc, cereal choice very limited. Nice location, would stay here again.

The lodge was very clean and it appeared to just recently have been totally remodeled. Extremely comfortable.Microwave oven, coffee pot and wet bar, with refrigerator. It also had a gas fireplace and a flat panel TV. Nice clean swimming pool, plus a continental breakfast. I thought a great value around a $100.00 Stayed August 2015, traveled with friends (This is...

We stayed for 1 night in a 2 queen room with 1 adult/ 3 kids. We stayed here 5 years ago and enjoyed it then, it was even better the second time. There have been quite a few renovations on the exterior and interior rooms. It is a nice clean lodge. I really liked the flowers they have growing on... More

Don't hesitate book it now... we were there twice this summer, friendly clean, and modern. Beach is right across the street and a ton of eating places with driving distance. Even a couple of places you can walk to. My place to stay in North Lake Tahoe!!!

Since we discovered Firelite Lodge a few years ago, we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Tahoe. The north shore is quieter with less traffic and crowds than the south. And the lake is so beautiful! There is a great beach with kayak rentals directly across the street. The rooms are spotless and very roomy with many conveniences like a... More

This trip was with my 17 year old son. We needed two comfortable beds, with a refrigerator, microwave and a clean room. The Firelite lodge was in the perfect location for kayaking and other activities we planned on doing at Lake Tahoe. We found a nicely renovated older property, with a nice central pool area. It was well maintained, and... More

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 Don't be fooled by the outdated sign; the facility has been otherwise updated nicely.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.
