“Stardust in My Eyes...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Thank you to the WONDERFUL, KIND, and PROFESSIONAL staff at Stardust. Lovely folks, very helpful in every fashion. A question will not go unanswered. Everyone, and I mean everyone is kind. Went above and beyond with courtesy and professional service. (The gentlemen working on maintenance as well). My reservation was made via phone, perhaps one month in advance. I travel and lodge as a corporate traveler, thus... I have been to many establishments. A wonderful welcome and visit. Exceptionally clean facility, grounds, laundry room (free!).Remember, read the web site carefully. You will get exactly what is offered with 5 star service. Ask questions if you are not sure. They are all most helpful. Excellent Taco Cart around the corner, market, bus stop, and Gondola access. I felt safe, and appreciated. I lodged in a back room which was quiet. The bed was comfy. What more can I say... I have Stardust in my eyes..

Room Tip: I pick rooms that will "lead to restful sleep". The back is quiet...

This was our second trip to S. Lake Tahoe to ski Heavenly. The first trip we stayed at the Marriott. It was fine, but it as just a hotel room. Since we were just 2, it did not seem cost effective to get a condo. This year, we stayed at The Stardust and I could not be more pleased! It was directly across the street from the gondola and actually fewer steps that when we stayed at the Marriott (due to the long hallways and elevators). Although the Stardust does not look like much from the outside, the interior room renovations were top notch: Granite counter tops, stainless appliances, the tiling in the bathroom was fastastic! The shower had dual faucets and was big enough for 2. The bathrooms were heated separately and had cieling to floor mirrors to give the appearance of a much larger room. We stayed in 209 which is an efficiency with a pull down murphy bed. The mattress was comfortable and was the perfect size for 2. The kitchen area was fully stocked and incuded a 2 burner stove, a full size regfrigerator and dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker and microwave. There is no washer and dryer in the unit, but is available on premises. We did borrow some DVDs during our stay and used the hot tub as well. It was too cold while we were there to use the pool although it is heated year round to 86 degrees. The staff was very attentive and gave very good recommendations on places in the area to eat. The price we paid was less than half that of a hotel troom at the Marriott and I felt the accomodations were much better overall.

We just returned from a boys trip and stayed at the Stardust. We did not rent a car and took the shuttle from the airport for $27 each way (we walked two blocks to the shuttle pickup but I'm sure you can arrange some sort of transportation if need be). You don't need a car because the Stardust is literally directly across from the Gondola for Heavenly and a block or two from the 3 best casinos. The staff was helpful and as friendly as could be. They had lasagna night on Wednesday for $7 and it was really good. We had a remodeled 2 bedroom unit and it was absolutely perfect. More than enough room for 3 men. They have a heated pool and hot tub that we used daily. This is a simple place that provides lodging, a hot tub and pool, and a continental breakfast. No room service or anything like that, but you are in the middle of everything. We plan to make this trip next year too and we will definitely stay at the Stardust again.

As we like skiing/snowboarding in Tahoe, we usually stay in South Lake Tahoe as there are many stores and restaurants around Heavenly Gondola area. Stardust Lodge is 30 seconds to the Gondola gate. The price is reasonable for the great location. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Rooms are small but comfortable. We like their complementary DVD library and popcorn. We are staying here for three years.

We stayed in the studio room with a murphy bed for two nights and had a really nice time. The price was very reasonable, the bed and small room surprisingly comfortable, and the location could not be better. This lodge is literally across the street from the Gondola lifts to Heavenly, which I really appreciated after walking around all day in my rental ski boots. Parking at the lodge was easy, and we walked to a nearby grocery store for supplies and then just carried our skis across the street the next morning for a full day on the slopes! I do wish there were some more breakfast options other than just donuts and banana/orange slices. Even bagels or toast would have been appreciated, as would have milk or cream for the coffee instead of powdered creamer. Still, we will definitelly be back!

Everything I was looking for on a weekend trip. Place was clean. Staff was friendly. Good location. Enjoyed hot tub and game room. Extras like breakfast snacks, peanuts and popcorn were a pleasant surprise. Located close to shops and restaurants.

Old time timeshare in the best location in Tahoe--two blocks from Harveys and Harrahs--two pubs and a brewery within a block.bikes, great continental breakfasts and a wonderful staff. We were fortunate to get one of the remodeled rooms and I must say that they did a wonderful job in the remodel. I understand that it will be two more years until they are all done over.

Staff again was wonderful and helpful...hope to be back before another ten years passes..

Room Tip: I like the 2nd floor away from the street
