“Great place and Location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

We came up to Lake Tahoe during the high season without a reservation anywhere. We walked into the Stardust and met Kenny and it was the beginning of a great vacation!

The entire staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. The first night we were lucky enough to stay in a beautiful 2 bedroom - 2 bath suite. It included 2 full bathrooms, one has a huge jacuzzi tub. It also had a gorgeous fully updated kitchen along with a fireplace, living room, and a huge porch with BBQ.
The second night we stayed in two separate room equally just as nice.
The lodge gave us free bikes to use, a bottle of wine for a friend's birthday along with some warm delicious cookies! Breakfast is also on the house!
There are two really nice pools and lots of fun activities. The location can not be beat! You can walk everywhere! The staff is so friendly. They even helped us get discount tickets for activities like boat rides etc.

We can not recommend this place high enough!! We will definitely be back. Thanks Kenny, Jacob, Jose and the rest of the staff for a great time!

I was impressed with the renovated rooms and the amazing location! We were literally across the street from the New Heavenly Village and the gondola up the mountain. Walking distance to the beach and discounts provided when you stay for activities!
The staff also is great with daily activities, a movie wall you can check-out, 2 pools and spas, parking, and a popcorn machine I the lobby! I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone as it is great for couples and families.

Greetings: I have been a member of the Stardust Vacation Resort/Lodge since 1989. I purchased the timeshare when it was still under remodeling construction and they were selling deeds to the Stardust Lodge. We, as a family, have being vacationing at the Stardust for over 25 years. I would like to state the management of the lodge continues to improve the facilities. They provide barbecues, music, a continental breakfast every morning that far exceeds any other place we have stayed. The staff starting with Kenny Sutton, the General Manager, Sydney, Jose, Fernando, Maria, Yazmin, Christina, Arnulfo Jr., Emely, Dolores, Victor, Karla, Martha, Josephina, Rusano, Coti, Maribel, Norma, Lola, Laura, Victoria, Arnulfo Sr., Gabriel, Luis, Emidio, Fernando Sr., Erin, Troy, Maria, and Yolanda, are some of the nicest people to have around you while vacationing. The front counter staff, to the breakfast staff, to the hard working housekeepers, and the service repair staff continually are there to make your vacation or visit a great one that is carefree. We can make reservations without issue, and when you arrive and it does not matter what time, you are always welcomed. The very last visit we had we were late and it was after closing. We used the service telephone and our instructions were easy to follow and the room information was in the electronic combination box safe that sits by the main entrance to the lodge. Many locations when you chose to stay for a week do not come in and clean your room, or provide you with new clean towels. The Stardust staff will come to your room daily, clean the room, and give you nice new fluffy towels. Nothing in the Stardust is old or broken down. Even the bicycles you can use are in great shape. The gym is well cared for and when you enter there isn't that musky gym smell. On the roof of the clubhouse are barbecue gas grills. All you do is go to the clubhouse kitchen and someone there will hand you the barbecue cooking equipment to use. The rooms are equipped with refrigerators large enough to store ice cream, vegetables, meats, drinks, and the like. Stoves, ovens, and auto dishwashers are part of the kitchen aids. Coffee, tea, and a coffee pot are also part of the service of items you can find in the kitchen. Even great cooking equipment such as pots, pans, Pyrex, and other containers are clean and waiting for you. Knives, forks, spoons, and other utensils are ready in drawers to use. Even the soap for dish washing and the auto dishwasher are provided. Fireplaces, dual headed showers, tile baths and shower stalls are standard. The floors are often tile, carpet, and are kept extremely clean. The beds are always comfortable. Plenty of pillows, bedding, and clean sheets are in your room and clean bedding is accomplished by housekeeping daily. There are two swimming pools, two hot tubs, and free laundry (washers an dryers) that can be used without cost. Cable Flat Screen Televisions are in all rooms even if you have a two bedroom. You can watch TV in bed if you wish. The Stardust is a very short distance to the beach and many activities are discounted when you arrive at the front counter. The Tahoe Queen and the M.S. Dixie, which are cruises over Lake Tahoe have buses that will pick you up directly in front of the Stardust which can be arranged at the front desk at a discount. There is plenty of parking at the Stardust so you do not need to worry about your car being damaged or having to walk a distance to get to the hotel and/or your room. Finally, we have traveled all over during our years we have been timeshare members at the Stardust and our family members always conclude the Stardust is the best resort we have used for vacations. We spend two weeks minimum a year at the Stardust. Also, there is bonus time for members and the fees are minimal compared to other resorts and hotels. Finally, I cannot commend the staff for making our visits so much fun and pleasurable. I strongly recommend the Stardust to anyone that wants to visit the Tahoe basin, gamble, and walk through the many stores which are close by. You will love the Stardust and all of the employees there. Make your reservations ahead of time as it quickly becomes booked up. However, the reservation staff will work with you to get you there when you plan. Joseph P. Puccio Member Since 1989 and still loving it.

Room Tip: Ask for the James Bond Room. It is absolutely wonderful. The penthouse is amazing.

We have been coming up to Lake Tahoe for the past several years and always enjoy staying at the Stardust Lodge. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. Kenny the Manager and Jose at the front desk are both great very professional and Customer Focused. I recommend the Stardust to anyone staying in South Lake Tahoe as it very convenient to everything.

The staff at Stardust were excellent. However, the room was very tiny, crowded with non essential furniture if just staying for one night. There is no air conditioning and the room was very hot all night. A fan was provided which helped but at the price of $169 one couldn't get a good nights sleep.

We do a lot of traveling and I have never met such nice, warm and welcoming people as I did at the Stardust Lodge. Kenny is the best! It is clear he cares about all the people staying at Stardust. We are so glad he is back. There is always something to do. One night we danced on site and did Kareoke, another night we played Bingo, we love to swim and take a jacuzzi, it is just the place to be.

We were in the car 9 hours to get here so arrived tired and ready for our room. Kenny checked us in faster than I could believe. All the staff are very friendly and lots to do in the area. Free bike rentals, a great continental breakfast in the morning, 2 pools and hot tubs. We were in one of the renovated studios which we found very comfortable. Had a murphy bed which was comfortable. Full size refrigerator, 2 burner stove, coffee maker, toaster, all dishes and silverware you'd need. And a dishwasher. We stayed during a heat wave and the units do not have AC so it was very uncomfortable during the night even with the fans going. .Also, no management on the property at night leading to several loud parties in the parking lot running until early morning. Couldn't sleep even with ear plugs in. Even so, I would probably stay again

Room Tip: Maybe in the back units?
