My wife and I spent a long weekend here celebrating our first wedding anniversary. We had a ground floor room, but were a bit removed from the entrance and never found noise to be an issue. The room was relatively basic, but comfortable and met all of our needs.
If you're in to pools, this area was especially nice, with a regular-sized pool, a hot tub, and a 'happy medium' heated pool with the spillover water from the hot tub. Great way to relax in the evening! Adjacent to the pool area was also a pretty decent fitness center, along with a game room that had a few basic games, where we had some epic canasta battles well into the night (I promise we've only been married for a year).
The main perk of this place is clearly the location. It's directly across the street from the south shores of lake Tahoe, with some prime view rooms available. There's also beach access via a flight of stairs directly by the crosswalk once you're across the road. Turn right at the bottom of the stairs for a relatively large beach area, turn left for some great sitting rocks that are right in the shade. My wife and I spent a good amount of time down here.
Also a few minutes' drive away is Heavenly village, which has some shopping opportunities, games, and a gondola ride that leads to some hiking trails and pretty sweet views. Another minute or two up the road is the casinos, in case you're looking to get your gamboooooooool on. Something to love for everybody!
We didn't have much interaction with staff during our stay, but found those we encountered to be helpful and pleasant. In fact, the lady at checkout was nice enough to warn us of some fires in the path of our intended route, which saved us time and caused us to take a more scenic direction. Many thanks for that! We love Tahoe and would definitely stay here again if we some back to the southern area
