The Holiday Inn Express is on the main road through South Lake Tahoe. There is a large free car park and our room and bathroom were very large with every amenity available for a comfortable stay. There was a free buffet breakfast available. The breakfast room was busy and the food was average. The hotel is almost opposite the Gondola and is opposite restaurants, shops and bars. Can't recommend anywhere to eat as every meal we had was disgusting (and expensive)!! We eventually found a pleasant restaurant about 20 minutes walk away by the Marina. There is also an outdoor pool.
