The Biltmore was a real disappointment. While we don't consider ourselves fussy, we do expect some basics. In this case we found dirty airless rooms, sticky carpets, a surly staff and general disrepair. The temperature in July was fine--in the 70's--,but our un-air conditioned room was boiling. Perhaps the most shocking thing was to see other people leaving their doors... More

Stayed in the "Cottages" which are really just a bunch of extremely old motel type buildings in back of the main hotel and casino. If you're looking fo any type of view other than the parking lot, don't stay in these buildings. The building I was in (building F) was so old that it literally felt like it was going... More

This place was a let-down from the moment we pulled into the carport - we couldn't even get in! The main entrance consists of two sliding glass doors, which were broken and taped off. We walked to the other side of the building - that set of doors was broken and taped off too. After a few minutes of wandering... More

This property is under new ownership, and the new owners do not have a clue on how to treat customers. Staying here was recommended by several friends who had nice stays and great food deals. Those food deals are a thing of the past and the employees do not seem amused to be employed there. Everywhere we turned, someone was... More

no airconditioning with a squeeky very noisey fan overhead.....Like a steambath....maybe ok in the winter. I don't know....Food is OK and cheap. Casino full of house shills. Better places to go on the lake.

We have stayed at this property many times, often with our family. However, probably not again! Our reservation was not made as requested...had requested a ground floor room in the "cottages"....which is really just an old motel...but were booked into a 2nd floor room. The reservations supervisor was able to give us a ground floor room, but not in the... More

Last year we stayed at the Tahoe Biltmore for an overnight stay during the ski season and ran into an issue regarding our stay. After calmly complaining to the manager, she took care of it. I thought last year's experience was a fluke and decided to try them again. I booked their ski package, which included lift tickets to your... More

1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2007

I stayed 2 nights mid-week in a "cottage" room (actually a dilapidated 4-plex as described earlier). Two positives: the staff were professional and competent and the neighbors through the paper-thin walls were quiet. Though quiet, I could still hear them tossing, turning and coughing in the night. The deal breaker was the heater (only two setting: full-force heat or off,... More

I stayed at the Biltmore for several days during the first week of January while my family and I skiied at Diamond Peak and Alpine Meadows. We had two rooms. The one, which I occupied on the fourth floor, was quite charming and had a lake view. The king sized bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was fine. Unfortunately, the... More

Our room was downgraded from two queen beds to two double beds and we were placed in a smoking room. The carpets were so dirty they were sticky and our bathroom was full of the hair of previous occupants! We paid about double their regular rate because the area was sold out during our planned weekend--but it wouldn't have been... More
