After reading other reviews I didn't expect a lot. They really were terrible. Uneven floors, holes in the curtains & old linens.There was a blowdryer but no coffeemaker which would have been nice. We didn't use the TV so who knows about that. Worst mattresses ever. I felt like I was @ Girl Scout camp with bathroom in the cabin.... More

The Biltmore has the potential to be a nice place. I think some of the hotel rooms have been updated, at least some pictures indicate that. But the cottages are horrible (dirty, paper thin walls, desperately needing work). It's sad that they don't put money into renovating all rooms and areas. Since Cal-Neva is renovating, maybe Biltmore will.

We travel to NShore Lake Tahoe every year give or take a couple over the past 15 - 20 years. We have stayed everywhere and one of our favorites is the Biltmore. The Hotel is older so one has to understand the imperfections. The cabins are clean and provide you with the necessities. You would benefit to bring along a... More

We have stayed here many times over the past 12 years. Located on the North Shore of Beautiful Lake Tahoe. We always get a room on the third floor of the hotel which gives us access to a large shared balcony that overlooks Lake Tahoe and the mountains. The hotel also has fully furnished cabins that they rent also. It... More

Had to get a hotel for a wedding and didn't have many choices due to other activities in the area. Ended up here despite the other bad reviews. Checked in after the wedding, so it was quite late and went straight to bed. In the light of day I saw how bad the room quality was. There were holes and... More

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
