Check in clerk on break at 3:00 pm despite this being check in time. Security guard telling people to wait for her return. When she returned she made me go downstairs to the players club to get my free stay offer. This took about 15 minutes. When I returned there was a long line. We stayed on the 3rd floor... More

This is not THE Biltmore Hotel I expected it to be. This hotel / lodge is crying to its owners for a makeover. Much of the needs are cosmetic, but obviously ignored for years. It needs a major cleaning, new carpets, furniture and a brighter coat of paint. I missed not having a coffee maker in the room, but I... More

We have been visiting this resort for 14 years now and decided to allow some of the family to share in our secret hideaway. They said the would definitely be back. Staff there is the best! Kristi, the Marketing Manager, goes out of her way to make sure your stay is just as you request. Not only does she arrange... More

Great price for a group cycling weekend at Tahoe. Not a destination resort, but it's clean, functional, with great heaters in each room and down blankets, which is much nicer than expected for the off-season price. Rare $5 tables in the attached casino (another good value).

Over 100 dollars got us a closet and a garbage view of the parking lot, we asked for a lakeside room. A couple girls who could barely speak English booked us in after we repeated ourselves 10 times, since it's difficult to understand our American accent. The hotel is cruddy, to be generous, the bathrooms have soap dispensers, we found... More

Very rustic old school casino in North Lake Tahoe. Smoky, no valet or bellhop. Feels old and looks old. Paper thin walls in room, squeaky floors, radiator heaters and cheap TV. Smoky casino, good bar deals so-so restaurants, definitely not gourmet. Staff cordial. No Wi-Fi. Price was right. If your an non-smoker you will hate it. Good for the younger... More

We opted for character over a higher end chain hotel and are glad we did. We were in town for our 2nd house hunting trip and spent 3 nights at the hotel. Arriving on a weeknight - it was very quiet, very few people in the Casino and not many hotel guests. Our room was basic but clean and comfortable.... More

Okay, it's an older hotel for sure but the price is right and the rooms are always clean and supplied with the basics. We are often there for an event at one of the casino's so expect some noise if that's what your there for. We've always felt the prices and location were great. Everything has always worked and we've... More

Wi-Fi does not work in the rooms or cabins, only the lobby. We had a "cabin room" but this is not a separate cabin, cabin rooms are in multiple-room buildings behind the casino/hotel building. The cabin rooms were reasonably priced but the walls were thin, you could hear everything in the rooms next-door and above. The building creaked badly when... More

Those of you who are familiar with the North Shore Stateline area of Lake Tahoe know what I mean when I say that the hotels here are "tired." The Biltmore fits into this category. You walk in and you can sense the blue haired quality of the facility. The furniture looks worn, the smells and sounds bring on a sense... More
