“King Jacuzzi Suite is wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

This hotel was clean and had all the amenities we were looking for except for no beach access. If you are looking for walking distance to casinoes, shopping, and nightlife, this location is perfect. We enjoyed the fireplace, jacuzzi, and generously sized bedroom and bathroom.

We came to Tahoe for a very last minute wedding on the lake and were pleasantly surprised by this location. We didn't get to the hotel until 10 pm and check-in was a breeze! Our room was very quiet (we were on the third floor) and it was very clean also! We walked down to Harrah's casino, whcih was a breeze. Very convenient-Great location! Zephyr's Cove is easy to get to also. The wedding we attended was on a boat that went out to Emerald Island. It was nice to wake up to a cont. breakfast with eggs, sausage, donuts, and yogurt. The staff is very friendly and I would definitely recommend you to stay here!

We had never been to South Lake Tahoe and booked thought AAA. The hotel is close to nice shopping areas and across street from Heavenly Ski Resort ....also close to Stateline casinos, all within walking distance. Close to Lake itself and easy driving to various hiking/biking trails.
Hotel staff was wonderful! Everyone that we encountered was friendly and very helpful. Our room was quiet, clean and spacious.Complimentary breakfast was available in large room/lobby with lots of choices.
I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Our room off and away from main street was very quiet....

Stayed one night during our tour of California. Our itinerary only permitted the one night, but would love to return to the area and would happily stay at the Holiday Inn Express.

We had 2 rooms booked, and arrived early, only one room was ready, so we piled the luggage into one room and after advice from the two people on reception, set off on a round the lake drive. It would take about 2 and a half hours if you didnt stop to take photographs, but we took around 5 hours. Some of the views, particularly Emerald Bay were truly spectacular. We also walked along some of the shoreline, and I would love to return.

The hotel itself was clean and the rooms we had were huge with an even bigger bathroom. Service from the front desk was excellent with good knowledge of the area. Breakfast room a little cramped in the morning but we soon had a seat.

Large pool and hot tub, which I had to myself at 7pm in the evening, so enjoyed a peaceful swim.

Ate at Applebees next door, good chain resatuarant food.

We stayed in the 2 queen size bed suite. It was very spacious and was well worth the money we paid for it. It had a kitchen and a small living room as well as a dining table.
The service was very good and they responded in a few minutes when we said that the water in the toilet doesn't flush.

The only bad thing I can say about the place, is that the breakfast lounge was too small to accommodate all the hotel guests. Many had to wait for a few minutes before they could sit down and eat. Others just ate standing up. There were no big tables that could fit more than 4-5 people, and there was only 1 high chair, so if you came second you just had to hold your baby in your lap. Also they say that the breakfast time is 7am-10:30am but when we arrived at 9:30am lots of food which was there at 8am was gone with no replacement.
other than that the food was OK.

Room Tip: Take the second floor. you can hear every step if you're on the ground level.

This hotel is perfectly located on the main boulevard in S Lake Tahoe.The rooms,however,are set back from the highway to minimize traffic noise.The nicest thing about the property is that it is shaded by loads of huge redwood trees...The staff is friendly and helpful.Walk to Heavenly lift or the casinos.Convenience stores,gas and restaurants all right there.Rooms are larger than other HIEs we have stayed in.The breakfast is standard HIE fare.Nice location,decent rooms,friendly staff.There is a heated pool,two jacuzzis and a sauna as well.Amidst all of the many lodging choices in Lake Tahoe this one does NOT stand out as a 'five star' but it certainly served our purposes.If you desire perfection,stay at the Marriott at the Heavenly ski lift complex...and pay through the nose.
