We visited for a week in September 2012 for a honeymoon. This was my first visit to Lake Tahoe. We booked the venue via AMEX vacations. The property location is perfect. It is within walking distance to the lake along with shopping and casinos less than 1 mile away, easy to bike to and from. Our room was on the 3rd floor in a one bedroom #338A to be exact. Our room was modern with a rustic feel to it and was updated and clean.
We had a living room area that included: fire place, pull-out couch (very comfortable did not use couch's bed), two chairs, a coffee table and 2 in-tables. Wall mounted flat screen TV was above the fireplace. Our room had a balcony that faced a wooded area on the lake side. Balcony had two chairs and small table. We stored our bikes here. Currently, the place is under construction. Our view was of construction equipment and work trailers. This didn't really bother us.
The dinning area was a dining/living room combo. Table w/ 3 chairs and built in seating along the wall. Perfect for two people. For a family of three this room would work, but for more than it would be tight living space.
Ample closet space throughout the space.
The modern styled kitchen had all the necessary items one would need to cook during a stay. Great appliances from the dishwasher to the coffee maker. I was impressed by the utensils, and pots and pans provided. Granite like counters, stainless steel appliances. Bring coffee. One day supply of coffee provided that is okay. Property has outdoor grills and picnic area that you can use. Room had vacuum and full sized ironing board and iron.
Our bedroom had a king bed w/two built in closets and a large dresser along w/a flat screen wall mounted TV. Bed was comfortable and linens clean. Overall room was very clean and decent in size.
Bathroom: Very Large! The light green bathroom had a separate shower glass stall and soaking tub on opposite side of room with large two vanity sink area. Colors were modern w/a homely-rustic feel to it. Make-up mirror and hairdryer provided. I can appreciate the large bathroom, and for a family it would be ample size. But, for two people, the large bathroom space could have been substituted for more living space, IMO.
Laundry: Great. Bring your own detergent.
We mainly were outside our entire time and did not use the property amenities like pool, hot tub, and gym. I liked our room. The common areas did not overwhelm me. A lot of beige and hallway carpet and wall color a bit outdated. The place is under construction so, you'll have to deal with minor construction inconveniences like elevator usage and some cosmetic upgrades in common halls. Staff very friendly and accommodating.
Cons: Timeshare property pitch. Housekeeping service is not daily. Valet parking only @$16/day. WiFi: $6.95/day. No room service. I haven't stayed at any other Lake Tahoe property, so I can't compare it to anything but for us, having the kitchen and living/dinning area made the place worth staying. Would I pay full price? Never, I always get discounted rates in some fashion.
