Slow wi-fi. Everything else is quite nice. We are on the basement floor with a patio door onto the pool. We have a peekaboo view of the lake through the lobby. Clean, retro rooms. Furniture is from the 70-80s. No frills. Big patio door. Pool. Hot tub. $92 for 2 queen beds.

After looking at *many* accommodations along the north stretch of Lake Tahoe, we chanced upon the Firelite Lodge, and we were so glad we did! The rooms are clean. spacious, simply but nicely (read: huge flat screen TV) outfitted, and the view...spectacular. In an area that is surprisingly devoid of reasonably priced GOOD accommodations, the Firelite stands out as a... More

Nice, cute quiet place. Very clean, nicely kept. We would defintely stay here again. We have friends staying at cheaper places and they definetly regretted their choice. It was worth the little extra we paid to stay here.

The north part of Lake Tahoe doesn't have a lot of mid-range hotel/motel options. Most of the big chains are in South Lake Tahoe. The Firelite Lodge, however, worked quite well for us in that sense though. It's a basic place -- rooms are fine, featuring a huge television. We had a nice view from upstairs of the lake, complete... More

Overall this is a good motel - across the street from the Lake (if you get a top floor King size room you have a view of the lake with a balcony). The lodge is also near a good steakhouse for dinner. There are no bells and whistles with this place, but if you want a clean, comfortable room for... More

All was great about this lodge: clean, good-sized rooms, nice view of the lake, park right in front of your room, breakfast was basic continental but good and clean, very nice TV, comfortable bed, wi-fi worked perfectly. Only complaint was that the shower water was not boiling hot ... which would have been nice after our days out skiing.

We spent one night here during a weekend ski trip and enjoyed this lodge. The room and bathroom were very clean and came with a mini fridge, microwave, sink, and a flat screen TV. Service was good and the lady at the front desk was very helpful. A continental breakfast is included in the AM prior to leaving for some... More

A small hotel looking out over lake tahoe. beautiful location. We used it as a home base to snowboard at Squaw Valley, Homewood, and Northstar. Free continental breakfast is bagels, and waffle iron and batter and two choices of cereal, milk and juice. perfect for the price!
