4 night stay here and enjoyed returning to our room every night. There is a little gas flame fire for the evenings which can be quite cold and each room has a balcony. No fridge in the room but the view from the sliding doors makes everything else seem ok. It is decorated in a kind of rustic style and is quite comfortable. The bathroom is small and not terribly nice and the sink is separate in the room. It was good not to be woken early by the housekeeping staff as happens in many other hotels! The pool is warm and there is a hot tub by the pool overlooking the beach. It can be cool by the lake and quite a few people were sitting by the pool fully clothed. The pool can be quite busy at certain times of the day and most rooms overlook the pool. The lake itself is freezing and not many people ventured in. There is a good selection of places to eat nearby and the location is very central and convenient for most things in south Lake Tahoe, including the gondola. Staff were very helpful with check in and suggestions for good places to eat etc. it is not cheap, but if you want a great view of the lake, this is the place to stay. If you aren't too bothered, there are lots of hotels and motels along the lake but they won't necessarily give you a view of the lake from your room.
