“Good hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

Eventhough we couldn't find a room with a microwave and a fridge, overall we were very happy wyth the hotel. The rooms were clean, spacy, and cozy and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our breakfast by the fireplace, after which the staff kindly helped us find a beatiful beach where we went for a walk. I would definitely like to come back again. Thank you!

Dear "Vlad_0002"
We are so delighted that you enjoyed your recent stay with your family at the Tahoe Chalet Inn. We are so glad that you enjoyed your walk along the Camp Richardson beach area. There are very few pristine areas in the world that compare to that section of Lake Tahoe. Thank you again for your kind comments. We look forward welcoming you and your family back, in the hopefully not too distant future.
Cordially
Peter E.

I stayed with my family in the family suite. We had enough space. It was so comfortable that I felt at home. Friendly office staff. I was offered to have breakfast there or go to IHOP, we chose IHOP and we had the worst service. I would stick with the hotel breakfast.

Thank you "JimenezMommy" for your recent review of our Tahoe Chalet Inn. I was very disappointed to hear that you had a poor experience at the nearby IHOP which we recommend to most of our customers.The majority of our guests have received excellent service and enjoy the favorable discount that we have negotiated with this IHOP. Your poor service experience is hopefully a one time event. I will share your comments with the new IHOP General Manager in an effort to improve their service levels. Meanwhile; thank you very much for your favorable comments about the Tahoe Chalet Inn. We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you back soon.

My husband and I stayed at the Tahoe Chalet Inn for one night, which was plenty. Now the suite we booked was clean which was good, but during our stay I felt like I was being secretly filmed for an episode of "how much tackiness can you stand?". Tacky is maybe even an understatement. We love kitsch, so the stay was one glorious surprise after another. We thought we would have free wifi access, but our room must have been too far, so no go. The television was snowy, every channel. There was a heart-shaped jacuzzi tub (hilarious), fake flowers everywhere, and a four-post bed with orange (kinda) linens. My favourite part by far was the frames placed around the room with nothing in them but the little sheet that states "8 x 10" that comes in them. Oh! and the "lovely garden" we were suggested to stroll through at night was really creepy. Because we have a good sense of humour this Inn was kinda perfect in a weird way. I had no idea that Harrah's was a 10 minute walk away and if I had, I would have stayed there for the night.

I don't normally post my opinion online, but I feel the need to warn of some inaccuracies in the advertisement. I gave this hotel a second star because I loved the jacuzzi tub. It was a romantic place for my wife and I to stay, but that's all that I liked.
This place claims to have a swimming pool. It does have a pool, but there is no water in it. A previous post from a year ago leads me to believe that this pool hasn't had water for at least a year. There was no wifi in my room and there wasn't anything fitness about this place. There was no pool or fitness center. I asked about the pool and I was politely told that I could swim in the lake, which is cold and dangerous to swim in because of all the boats and jetski's. The room was small with no telephone and the shower and sink were awful. I will come back to lake tahoe, because I had a great time, but I will not stay in the same hotel.

Room Tip: Book somewhere else

This is the best place for couples to stay in South Lake Tahoe! They have themed rooms of different sizes and are so comfortable and relaxing. The first time we stayed here, we had a smaller room, so perfect though! It had a jacuzzi tub near the bed and everything was just so tidy and clean! This year we stayed in a larger room, the Marie Antoinette, and I highly suggest trying it out. It had such a big amount of space with a small bar, closet, wood burning fireplace, sofas, two head shower, and a large jacuzzi tub. The decorations, colors, and cleanliness were just perfect! In the morning they brought us muffins and juice! I have never seen such service for a low cost room. And the ladies in the office are just wonderful, so friendly and helpful. They actually let you pick out your room. They gave us a couple keys to some rooms to look at them in person before choosing which one we would stay in. Everything about this place made our honeymoon and anniversary perfect and we will keep coming back every year! Thank you so much!

Our room at the Tahoe Chalet Inn was perfect. The room was newly remodeled with attention paid to every detail. Tile on the floors throughout and the bathroom tile design was so nice we took photos! The room was spotless. There was a coffee maker with plenty of coffee and a refrigerator too. Although I did not use it, there was a hair dryer in the room. I would definitely return to this hotel.

Tired and unclean is how I describe this place. At first glance seemed clean enough but looking more closely I wished I hadn't. The shower was in a closet type area with no light which was probably just as well so you didn't see it too well.
Breakfast was a complete joke, a decanter of cool coffee, no milk just creamer, a few cheap boxes of juice drink and 3 boxes of cakes from Safeway, (2 plain donuts and one cinammon donuts). Thats not what I call breakfast!
Pool had no water in it, didn't try spa as seemed to be in another building across a road.
Rooms were pretty small too
