“Very good stay - we recommend this hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

We stayed here on a Saturday night in November before the ski season started and got a very reasonable deal on the hotel.

Our room was excellent - clean, quiet (even though we were not on the top floor), and well-appointed. Toiletries and towels are nice. There is a coffee machine the room (but I wish they gave us teabags too, not just coffee). The only issue is that the hot water takes a long time to come on - you have to run the taps and waste a lot of water before the shower got hot. (It did get hot eventually).

When we arrived, the hotel had lost our booking. However, we had the booking receipt, and the issue was dealt with quickly and professionally. We were given a free drink at the bar whilst we were waiting, and our room was upgraded.

The hotel has a really nice vibe. The bar area (next to the reception) is very cozy and well-decorated. The location is great - about 2 minutes walk to the Heavenly Gondola.

We would definitely stay here again.

Glad to hear you had such a great experience with our staff. They really are the best in Tahoe! Sorry for the slow hot water, we use a tank-less system so water isn't constantly circulating through the hotel and can take a little longer to get to your room during slow nights. The system saves a lot of energy so you don't have to feel guilty about running the water a little longer. We hope to see you again soon!

Recently I stayed at 968 Park Hotel for four nights. I was very happy with the friendly staff who are available at the front desk 24 hours. The rooms are clean, however they are not very insulated so be aware you may want to ask for a top floor room! The beds are comfortable and they give you plenty of blankets and pillows! The sauna is perfect and the outside pool is warm (even in October)! The hotel is located just across the street from many stores and restaurants so it's possible to not have to drive your car to get dinner or a catch a movie! I am heading back soon with my family and am so glad to have found 968 Park Hotel!

Room Tip: I prefer the rooms facing West so the sun doesn't stream through the blinds early and wake me!

My husband and I came here for a couple nights in the off-season and had a great time. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was simple but very nicely furnished - a large comfy bed, flat-screen tv, and a clean, fresh look and feel to it. The hotel is just off the main highway through Stateline and South Lake Tahoe - far enough from it to not hear the traffic but still within easy walking distance of the restaurants, casinos and shops. I would definitely recommend this place!

This is an overdue review, we stayed there last year (Jan-Feb) and it was great, the staff were very polite and more than helpful to make our stay so superb, we are booking again for next year and I can successfully say from an over fussy couple and a very fussy wife that this hotel was clean, also free coffee all the time was a bonus

Room Tip: Erm we were on the first floor and had no distractions so I'd recommend the 1st floor

Great to hear from you! If its been that long you'll love some of our changes. We now have a full coffee bar. And you still get free coffee when you book direct (also free beer or wine of you choose) Plus we have Keurig coffee makers in the room now too!

We stayed here because I saw a deal ,not for our dates. The rate wasn't bad so I booked. The hotel is in a very nice location and we could walk everywhere. I was a little disappointed that they do not give a pass to the beach that the low cost hotel did. The room was okay nothing that special, but the coffee in the room was really nice. You could not hear the room next door and the pool was nice. There is a little bar downstairs but no continental breakfast either,the low cost hotel had that also.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the back parking lot or you will see a building next door and the cars. Th...

Overall the hotel was okay. We got a deal using TravelZoo so the price was right and we got 2 drinks in the bar. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Beer and Coffee were both very good.
Cons-The hot tub was very foamy, when we turned the jets on it foamed enough that it went over the edge on one side. And, the shower was so cold. I thought maybe it just took a bit to warm up. My second shower did get moderately warm but then I was shot with cold and then hot water.
I would probably stay again if we got a deal.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Sorry to hear about the foaming hot tub. When we have a guest with heavy lotion or soapy bathing trunks it can get foamy quite quickly. We have changed our chemical testing protocol from once a day to twice to catch these situation should they occur again.
