“Trendy, good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Second time stay here. It was very nice with great staff. I thought it was a little pricy being between seasons and I think there might be better value in a comparable room nearby for less. I guess one is paying now for the trendiness of the place. This was with a returning guest discount. Don't think I would return for a 3rd visit. Near lots of restaurants and shopping all within walking distance.

Room Tip: Don't get a room facing Park as traffic noise picks up very early.

Thanks for your high rating! We sure hope that you get a lot more than just trendiness! We've set up our rooms with the most comfortable beds around, hand made furniture, flat screen TV's, organic bath amenities, Keurig Coffee machines plus a gourmet coffee bar (that serves beer and wine too!) Plus we have Tahoe's only poolside cabanas, free live music every Saturday and free wine tastings on Fridays.

We do charge more than many of the older hotels in Tahoe but we make sure you get a lot more too!

Probably the "greenest" hotel around- great job of recycling in building. Staff was friendly, helpful with directions. Room is basic but comfortable- radiant heating very quiet and effective. Tight parking, but that's the price for the great location. Two free tokens for bar drinks a nice touch.

This is a great find for the price. Hotel was renovated in a rustic environmentally friendly style. Best of all is proximity to beach and casinos. Past reviews mention lack of air conditioning but in the fall with the windows open, it was quite comfortable.

Thanks to Groupon we found this gem of an hotel in Heavenly Village, South Lake Tahoe...incredibly charming people work throughout the hotel: Christina and Jacob and Natasha and Jesse, Brittany and Alfred and Rich and Justin fantastic job! Love the re-cycled wood and metal throughout the building. Easy walk to Lake,village cable car, and everyone at 968 will give great 'local knowledge' advice.

Room Tip: top floor, front south corner

Arrived at 968 Park and were greeted by the amazing Christina! She is a diamond! Nothing was too much trouble, in fact beyond that all the members of staff we encountered were more than helpful and deserve mentioning. Jacob at front desk was really friendly, Natasha behind the bar terrific. Rich on maintenance gave us great advice on places to visit. A special mention to Justin also on maintenance, who has served for his country and now helps to keep 968 looking tip top! Jesse, Brittany and Alfred were also very friendly and helpful.

Having said all this there are a few issues as mentioned by other reviewers, spotty wifi, no proper AC or fridge in some rooms but next to the staff that work there were minor issues and they did everything in their power to quickly address any concerns.

In short if you are planning a trip to South Lakr Tahoe you have to check out this hotel! We extended our reservation twice because we were made to feel so welcome!

My boyfriend and I stayed at 968 Park Hotel recently. Good service, but the rooms are lacking.

Cons
- No A/C in the rooms (which was a first in Tahoe -- it gets hot in the summer). This was a big con.
- Weird note about not using white towels provided in the bathroom for removing makeup. I guess that makes sense - make up can stain. They provided disposible makeup cloths to use instead, but I thought the note was weird and wondered why they didn't just provide darker towels to use for make up (like Basecamp).
- Sink and mirror are really short. Not sure if we were in a unique room (I promise we're not giants! 5'8 & 6'), but for some reason the sink was really low!

Pros
- Good service
- Great location
- Cute bar area with wine tastings and live music in the hotel lobby

They have a good opportunity to reach clientele who don't want to pay the ridiculously expensive rates of Basecamp. Hoping they improve their accommodations soon.

The hot tub was the most disgusting thing I've ever stepped foot into. It was slimy and felt like it hadn't been cleaned in years. I immediately took a shower to wash the scum off of me and was paranoid for a few days after of developing a rash or infection. Overall, our sleeping quarters were okay. The bed was comfortable, which was nice; however, I think the word "green" and "LEED Certified" are a poor excuse to use for cheap products and quality of the room. It's clearly an old hotel and the idea of "reclaimed" materials is a neat concept, but could've been executed better. Additionally, tile floor in hotel rooms is neither attractive nor pleasant to walk on or look at. Finally, the walls are paper thin, which can make for a poor night's sleep, especially as the drunks roll home from the casinos.
