Our stay at the Border House was interesting. We try to go for off beat places, and this cozy spot fit the bill. The beds were comfortable, my husband loved the pillows, the fireplace was nice and the cost was very reasonable. What really struck us as strange though, was there was no bathroom (toilet) door. There was a curtain... More

I discovered the Border House three years ago and decided to finally share this special place. My husband and I have stayed in every room of this boutique hotel. Suite #11 for the 60" flat screen, heated bathroom floors, steam room shower, king bed, fireplace and the space is our favorite room. Suite #6 is our second favorite for the... More

Spent 3 nights at Border House in early December. The check-in process was extremely confusing! We arrive at 5 p.m, only to find the parking lot completely empty and the hotel's front door locked. Called reservations, told us to head to the casino right next door, and checked in there. Turns out the keys they gave us were both for... More

Me and my friend where very surprised at how awesome the room was, I had booked it a few months in advance. Very clean, modern did NOT smell like smoke. The bathroom was very modern... More

We are in room 11, third floor to ourself. A beautiful boutique like hotel.... A few quirks, but worth the price for sure! You check in at the players desk at the casino, it's an old Nevada casino so it's very smoky! (You only endure it a few minutes so not a big deal) the rooms are beautiful, and incredibly... More

Border House is truly on the border, on the border of Nevada and California and on the border of being a good place to stay. It's an odd building and hard to find. No sign. You check in at the casino next door and then the doorman points to the building next door. The rooms are dark without sufficient light... More

I was really shocked at how gorgeous our room was: high end accessories/linens/decor. It was quiver but close to the lake and casinos. We enjoyed being able to walk through the Cal Neva parking lot toward the lake then to the right down the side street to speedboat beach. Mellow Fellow across the way is great as well. A wonderful...

My husband and I were in Tahoe for work and had no idea where to stay. We picked the Border House based on the tripadvisor reviews and were more than pleased with our room. It was quiet, well decorated, the bed was very comfortable, the linens were as excellent as other reviewers had stated, and the snacks and keurig coffee... More

My husband and I stayed here for a brief anniversary get away. We never plan to spend much time in our hotel room, but what time we did spend was enjoyable. The bed is conformable, while the pillows leave something to be desired. The jet tub and shower were delightful with an abidance of hot water. Some odd things are... More
