OK this is definitely a case of the good, the bad and the ugly! The Good - EXCELLENT view from a high floor facing the Lake Tahoe. That's it for the good...... The Bad - To get the BEST lake view - open the window because they are sooooooo dirty. The furniture ALL needs to be burned for firewood -... More

I don't know where to start. I booked this on a travel website for $144, only to discover the hotel's rate was $81 (nothing they could do, and the front desk agent looked astonished when I told him how much I paid). Honestly, I wouldn't pay $1 to stay again. The hotel is in desperate need of a renovation; not... More

The "Lady of the Lake" has slipped; but they are taking very good care of her until the upcoming 30 million renovation takes place this fall. The staff was very accommodating and polite. Our room was very clean and everything was in working order and most of all the unobstructed view of the lake from our 8th floor room looking... More

From the second I entered this disgusting establishment I was horrified. The service was horrible. The room was gross. The hallways were gross. It's not even a casino. No tables just some slots. It was 90' in the room and the air conditioning was broken. The paints peeling off the walls. I would rather sleep in my car than in... More

We left at 8:30 the night we checked in. There was no airconditioning but they said that it would cool off and that windows could be opened. Howver the windows in the rooms do not have screens. They were nice about refunding our credit card and letting us out of our reservations. The rooms were nice enough, and clean. The... More

Took advantage of the weekday $65 per nite package which includes a $10 breakfast voucher for each person(for each nite of stay) in the very nice dining room --- white table cloths, polite service and good food. Our room had a view from the 8th floor of the West. Rooms facing east face Crystal Bay. The ever changing colors of... More

Everything in this place has an inch of dust on it and the floor we stayed on (5) smelled like they just bug bombed the place. They have a great location and if they updated they place since 1955 it would be wonderful but as of now it's a dive.

We had a super rad time. The hotel wasn't over-run with fun, but the staff was accommodating and friendly. We weren't expecting any other than what we got, the reviews are pretty accurate. The room was clean, the view was epic, the gym/hot tub were empty so I got them to myself, the beach just west a mile away was... More

Okay, we went to Cal-Neva Lodge in the middle of the week in May, before the summer season, but there were no customers in the entire casino, the restaurant was not open for lunch and it was as quiet as a tomb. We had anticipated it would be quiet, but it was completely dead. And we couldn't get lunch, either.... More
