“Eco-friendly hotel at an affordable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

This is a small hotel with charming interiors. It is close to major attractions and roads in Tahoe. It seems attention was paid to all details, including the elevators' design. There is a rustic feel to the decor. It looks very elegant, yet casual. Our room was spacious, clean, and had plenty of natural light. Nights were very quiet and we slept very comfortably. Other than WiFi reception being weak in the room, everything else was very pleasing. Parking is a little tight, so be aware if you are driving a midsize car it may be challenging. However, that's only if you are using the covered lot. We liked the lobby atmosphere and music played. Staff welcomed us with a smile every morning and they were quick to answer our questions.

Green Features: We were very impressed by the large amount of recycled material used throughout the hotel. It is very encouraging to know this hotel works hard to maintain practices that are friendly to the environment, including protecting Lake Tahoe from pollution.

We were very happy with this fun little hotel. Convenient location, friendly staff, fun decor. Rustic and modern. I didn't get a chance to check out the pool/ spa but I would stay here again for sure. Rooms are small but well done.

A friend I stayed at 968, and loved it. Doug, the on-duty manager anwsered the phone for our booking, he was terrific. Our double queen room, was very clean, and the bedding by far the best ever! The decor of this hotel is unique, the stained wood, and photos are very cool. The hotel is eco-friendly, and they have a spa. We had a drink at the bar located in the lobby, the bartender (Kelsey) knew a lot about the wine they served, and was friendly and fun. The hotel is within walking distance to the casino's and beach. Oh, and in the room's is a modern pod coffeemaker which makes first rate coffee.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 207, loved it.

Hi Anne,
Thanks so much for your detailed review. I am very happy to hear you enjoyed the 968 so much! Our main focus is you, our guest and we strive to create an easy going relaxed environment for you. It makes my day when I see a guest mentioning a staff member by name. It definitely does not go unnoticed or unrewarded. I hope next time you're in Tahoe you will stay with us again. Remember, returning guests who book directly with us get 20% their room and massage services and perpetual happy hour pricing. We look forward to seeing you again.

The rooms were very nice, comfortable and clean. The service was great. They have live bands and a mini bar on the main floor. Even with all the noise downstairs, I didn't hear anything from my room. They have a jacuzzi and swimming pool, pretty much a mini resort! They offer spa services as well as many other services.They also gave us 15% off of recommended restaraunts. Would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: I liked being on the 2nd floor because their is a balcony and commodities. Very nice hotel!

Thank you so much for your review. It's great to hear you enjoyed yourself so much. Our Saturday night live music is something I look forward to all week. I am glad we are able to have a space that we can feature local artists and that our guests are loving it so much. Please let us know next time you're in town.

5 of us stayed at 968 for two weeks recently and had an epic time. The bar and the hotel staff really make the hotel a great place to stay. Everyone really wants to help you have a good time. Richard, who looks after the maintenance of the hotel is a top bloke, helped me out many times. Rowena owns the bar and the offers each night make it a great place to party. Kelsey is also really lovely. Ashley,jake and Christina were also fantastic.. Too many great people to mention all of them.

The rooms are large, clean and a little out there due to the use of recycled materials. Thank you so much to the housekeeping team. You kept our rooms smelling so nice despite the sweaty ski socks and boots.

Thank you to you all

We stayed at 968 park hotel and for the value I would say its one of south lakes hidden secrets. The staff has been the best and very nice people to talk to. The rooms are very clean and Eco friendly with a very comfy bed to pass out on after a long day of boarding. The drinks are fairly priced with daily drink specials and happy hour from 4-6. If your looking for a great place to stay you found it right hear.
