“it is ok, but”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

the hotel is fine, close to beach with beach access. the hotel is a resorthotel, nevertheless the daily guest rooms are usual hotel in the building close to the highway.

the room was ok, internet is available and not included, breaktfast is not available.

the rooms comes with a full equipped small kitchen, which helfs to solve dinner and breakfast wishes.

from my person point of view the hotel is too expensive, considering the area the price may be ok.

We stayed here and were really happy about our choice. We had a lodge room--one bedroom, kitchen, living room--and it was roomy,very well kept and comfortable. We had two flat-screen TVs, two balconies--just a really nice unit. Only problem is it was right next door to the entrance to the reception area, consequently it was a little noisy late at night and early in the morning. A big plus here was the staff. They could not have been more accommodating. They were glad to answer numerous questions and provided so much helpful information. I want to especially acknowledge Benjamin for his patience and courtesy. If we come back to Lake Tahoe and I hope we do, I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask to be moved away from the entrance area.

We stayed here 3 nights in September when day temps were 75ish. While it's a roomy and nice 3 level lakeview home it does not have air conditioning. The description on the website doesn't let you know this. I should not have assumed that a nice place like this would have it. One bed is downstairs and it was uncomfortably hot until about midnight. The bed rooms up stairs I don't know how anyone could sleep it was so miserable. There are no screens in the windows so opening them is not really an option with all the bees and flies this time of year. So just be warned you will be miserable if you come when it's warm out. The bed is hard as a rock and the pillows sink flat as soon as your head touches. Other than that it was well furnished, nice kitchen, and close to everything. They even have a shuttle that will run you 2 miles from 8 to 11.

For a long time we wanted to go to Tahoe...it is so beautiful! The house we rented was clean, cozy, way too big for our small family, but that was fine! The people at the hotel were not very helpful when we asked about places to go to eat...they only told us about South Lake Tahoe, and there is so much more elsewhere...It was okay but now that we went all around the lake we see that there are many other choices! The lake is so beautiful though!!!!

We stayed in an efficiency apartment in the main lodge. Our room was on the first floor and faced the main road outside the resort, but the noise from the traffic wasn't bad, especially since our room had shrubbery planted right outside of our little balcony (room 108).
The room was large, clean, comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. Linens were ample and clean. I would suggest a larger fridge though, since the one we had was a little bigger than dorm-sized, but we were able to fit what we had for a week's stay. We didn't realize that the gas fireplace wasn't working until our penultimate night, which was the first time we tried to use it. However, when we reported it to the main desk it was taken care of the same day.
There are two pools with outdoor spas, one at the main lodge and one at the beach. Nice big towels are available at the main lodge or the cafe building at the beach, which also had abundant beach chairs. The pools and beach were nicely maintained, and the beach and cafe also featured outdoor grills, fire pits, and a ping pong table. Water activities were extra and we thought a tad pricey.
There's also a pretty little pier that provides beautiful sunset views. The sunsets are simply amazing. Unfortunately that might have been due in part to the ongoing wildfires south of Tahoe. The air smelled fresh and piney with only a hint of smoke from the fires. The grounds are beautifully maintained with lots of gorgeous pine trees.
The resort staff are friendly and very helpful. There's a free shuttle to take you to spots up and down the main drag within a couple of miles, including the casinos at the stateline. They also provide free coffee and computer access which came in very handy when we needed to check in and print our boarding passes (essential if you're flying Southwest). They have DVDs for rental and free safebox storage at the main desk.
Lots of restaurants, bars and shopping in walking distance. Driving is also a pleasure, and I was impressed at how polite the drivers in California are, at least in Tahoe! Minimal tailgating and no honking - what a relief for us stressed-out New Yorkers.
We breakfasted at Heidi's next door our first morning but it was very expensive and not worth the money. We had better luck at IHOP (in walking distance) and Denny's (short drive). Mo's Sports Bar in the Super8 across the street from the resort is a fun place with great pub grub and a nice mix of visitors and locals.
The gondola trip up Heavenly is awesome with beautiful panoramic views of the lake and surrounding mountains. I'm afraid of heights but enjoyed it nevertheless!
The Safeway supermarket was a short walk and a great place to stock up. There's also a CVS right next to the resort. In short, the place is ideally located.
We used Tahoe as a jumping-off place for what we'd hoped would be a two-day visit to Yosemite, but the fire started raging the first day we were there. It took us an extra two hours to drive to Sonora, where we stayed one night, and then returned to Tahoe rather than venture into Yosemite again; sadly the air quality was already pretty bad. Plus it was really really hot in Sonora.
We had a gorgeous drive (about two and a half hours) on Highway 88 up from Sonora through Eldorado National Forest back to Tahoe. We literally went from fire to ice - an afternoon dip in the pool at the resort in Lake Tahoe was cut short by an astounding thunderstorm with brilliant lightning and a hail storm with an accumulation of about an inch of ice! Nature really puts on a show in Lake Tahoe.
But that's another story....
Anyway, I highly recommend Aston Lakeland Village and definitely plan to stay there again.

Totally recommend this hotel. The place is huge, with 2 bedrooms and a loft on the 3rd floor. It had all the dishes and cookware we needed. The rooms were clean and the service was great. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in a one-bedroom with loft townhouse at the end of July 2013. Based on reviews, I was a little worried about the quality of accommodations, but our unit was nicely furnished and well appointed. The loft was spacious and had a double bed and a large sofa. The kitchen had granite counter tops and all of the basic appliances which we needed (coffee maker, blender, toaster, dish washer, etc.). Everything was clean and nicely maintained. Maid service came daily, except when we posted a "do not disturb" sign. They provided clean towels daily, and at the beach, they provided clean beach towels daily.
Our seven year old used the kids club, and there was generally a ratio of only three kids per counselor. The counselors were clearly loving people who liked what they did.
One negative was the layout of our unit. Both bathrooms were on the ground floor, with a living room-kitchen on the second floor and the loft bedroom on the third floor. That meant that if someone sleeping in the loft needed to use the bathroom, he had to walk down the narrow spiral staircase from the loft, and then another flight of stairs to the bathroom. Another complaint was the HVAC. We had little heat, making the loft fairly cold in the morning, despite the fact we visited at the end of July. There was no AC.
Overall, I would say that accommodations were slightly better than a typical 3 star hotel in the US, and the location (nice beach frontage) and the price ($269 plus tax with AAA discount) made this a nice buy. We would stay there again if we went to South Lake Tahoe in the summer.

Room Tip: Try to get a room near the lake!
