The Tahoe Biltmore is a bit out dated but they try their best to accommodate everyone. The bars are fun and the cafe has good breakfast. We ate at the new BBQ restaurant has good food but everything has the same smoked flavor. It's a good inexpensive place to hang out.

You might get a night's sleep here. If you are a writer, you will certainly get a lot of stories from the characters milling about the joint. Come on a Saturday and you will get an earful and an eyeful. We were part of a group of eleven, took a look at our rooms in the alleged cottages, and promptly... More

I had been going to Tahoe Biltmore for years, though the place is getting a bit run down they usually had cheap room rates. I had seen the negative reviews here but never had to deal with their terrible customer service before. Unfortunately, my last experience has been an utterly terrible one. Upon check out, they added a $300 dollar... More

My parents live in Incline Village, but if they're house is busy with guests I'll stay at a cabin at the Biltmore and I've always loved it. Old, yes. Fancy, no. But I've had fun every time I stay in Crystal Bay. I know there has been a lot of talk about remodeling the Biltmore and hopefully Cal-Neva and Crystal... More

Okay, you DO get what you pay for, which isn't much. However, they did let us bring our small dog, but we had to stay in one of the depressing cottages in the back. The main building seemed okay, but we didn't go there at all. Only reason we stayed was to go to the restaurant next door, Soule Domain,... More

This hotel is low in cost so the expectations should also be set very low. It is a functional place that is conveniently located. But it's not a hotel you would recommend to those with 3 star or higher standards.

Stopped here on a business trip to review for Client visit. Very dirty and quite depressing. Dark and gloomy. Service just barely OK and I would NEVER stop here again. Children playing in the lobby at a very late hour

Made my reservation a week in advance and was told the main building was full and they would put me across the street in their motel. For the cost of $125 for 2 nights stay well OK. I've been here multiple times through the years and have always enjoyed the lake, gambling, food and relaxing here. 2 days before I... More

My husband and I stayed at the Tahoe Biltmore in a hotel room in the main casino building. It was rustic, quaint, clean, and charming. "Clean" is the key word here. It is not chic or hipster by any means. If you are looking for glamour it left with the Rat Pack. You will find clean and secure lodging and... More

Just got home from one of the best Italian meals I have had at the Lake. Little known Conrad's in the Tahoe Biltmore Lodge is offering a 3 course Italian meal on Thursday nights for $19.95. Started with the Caesar salad, just the right amount of dressing. I had the chicken parmigiana, tender and perfectly seasoned. Came with side of... More
