“nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Clean room, nice bed, mini bar and microwave. Rate was reasonable for a summer weekend night. Hotel is nice location with many pine trees and just a 15-minute walk to Stateline. I had a quiet sleep with no noise. Parking was fine unless you arrive late in the day or night. A few benefits of this hotel was the pool, sauna, jacuzzi, and laundry machines. Overall, it was a great hotel, and I would stay here again.

Room Tip: request farthest building back, upstairs

This hotel wasn't the best deal in town but was excellent overall and a great value non-the-less. The two bed room we stayed in was huge and clean; also came with a double refrigerator and micro. The hot and cold breakfast was by far the best of any hotel in its class. The staff was knowledgeable about details of what to do and where to go in the area as well.Bathroom was also well equipped and large. Beds were super comfortable. But the clincher for us was the location; close to Heavenly's Gondolas, a beautiful 2 mile trail off Kahle st., that ends in Nevada Beach, a Rayles plaza across the street, and a Carrows restaurant 100 feet away from our room. You wont be disappointed with this hotel. We'll be back here for sure next year.

Room Tip: A couple with us had the single bed room. It was good, but I would choose the double bed room for th...

the furnishings are dated, but the location is great. the staff was really, really helpful. we had a fireplace suite to use the pullout- hybrid pullout/inflatable couch which deflated several times during the night and was very uncomfortable- other than that the suite was really spacious and the beds seems comfy to my friends.

Just stayed for one night and was very comfortable. Nice outdoor pool and hot tub although they had run out of towels by the end of the day and took quite some time to get more. There are multiple buildings all rooms have exterior corridor and some rooms you can park in front of. There is also an indoor whirlpool which would be nice in cooler weather. Room is a little small but nice big bath area. Good breakfast choices.

I stayed for two nights on 2nd floor and would recommend! Very clean and quiet location. The room was large and bed was comfortable. I didn't try the breakfast but was invited or reminded by staff. I just had other plans so it didn't work out. I will try next time. The pool looked nice and some folks were quietly having fun. I need to stay longer to use all of the amenities good job!

Stayed one night on points- wouldn't have paid here. Breakfast was pitiful- poor quality and few options. Desk staff seemed a bit confused and gave some vague suggestions for areas to hike and no idea what was good for food- although the options are limited. IHG platinum status did nothing at this property- no rooms to really upgrade to all basic. Room was fine and above average decor. could hear those walking above you so ask for a second floor. If you can afford go to hyatt regency Lake Tahoe resort.

Dear MrGreen21,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our hotel and for being an IHG Rewards Club Platinum member. It is truly regrettable that our breakfast selection and room accommodations fell short of your expectations. I appreciate all your comments including those about the noise levels and the information provided by our front desk. Rest assured that these will be taken into serious consideration towards improving our facility.

I hope that you give us another chance to host you again as we would love to regain your faith in us.

Sincerely,

Faith R

No it isn't on the lake but the location is still good. The staff is super friendly. I have a small service dog and there were no issues. We stayed for two nights and found this hotel to be an outstanding value.
