My husband and I felt we really needed to get one last summer trip in before our daughter returned to school, so we opted for South Lake Tahoe. We fell in love with what South Lake Tahoe had to offer and can't wait to go back during the winter. We stayed at the Beach Retreat & Lodge and loved our view from the third floor corner room we stayed in. But that is where the love stopped! In our bathroom on the ceiling lived tiny bugs, I believe they were mosquitos. We stayed 6 nights and 4 out of those days we had to call the front desk to request that our room be cleaned. Each and every time we requested that our room be cleaned (and we left early and were usually gone several hours) they apologized and told us that the rooms could not all get cleaned at once! Yes, I get it, but then perhaps you should hire more people. Also, the TV in the room was an old school TV, it's a good thing we really didn't watch much of it. The buffet that they offered sounded great but we took a look before actually paying and thank goodness we did because it didn't look very appetizing. And finally, they didn't have a shower outside by the pool, so the pool was not very clean because people would really have no choice but to go directly from the lake/beach into the pool. We won't be booking our stay in the winter with Beach Retreat and Lodge.
