I stayed here from the 21 Dec 2012 to the 28 Dec 2012 with the primary purpose of my visit to Lake Tahoe to Ski.
Firstly I have to say I had a huge room that was well presented and clean. The hotel offers free breakfast and has free tea /coffee in reception (self service) throughout the day.
The hotel is a 5 minute walk (8 minutes if the traffic lights are on red!) to the Gondola for Heavenly or alternatively the Ski Bus to California lodge (this located behind the Gondola).
There is no food other than breakfast offered at this hotel although it is next to a string of cafes and restaurants so dining is not a problem.
Breakfast is a typical American breakfast and incudes 'Donuts' amongst the Pancakes, eggs, ceral and yogurts on offer. The only downside to this hotel is the amount of seating available for breakfast everyday it was an issue finding a table and often people went and paid to eat in the restaurnt next store.But persevere, share a table and maybe make a friend - after all you are on holiday - relax.
Worth a mention - The hotel does not have a bar but there are plenty of bars nearby (within 1 minute) and a liquor store across the road.
I will definitely stay again next time I visit
