The Tahoe Beach and Ski Club sits on a beautiful private beach adjacent to the Ski Run marina (from where the Tahoe Queen paddle wheeler departs). The rooms are comfortable but the one bedroom townhouse units are quite small and dark with only a partial kitchen (no range or dishwasher). And although many of the buildings have been or are being updated, that was not the case with the Baldwin Building, the one closest to the lake (although we were told it was scheduled for Spring, 2014). The carpets and some of the appliances were old and tired and, wow, do the floors creak! We could hear every movement and footstep of the guests above us.
Our very late check-in was quick and the front deck was very pleasant when we came in the next morning to finish the paperwork. However, check-out was another story. My wife is disabled so it does take us longer to get things together. We were just loading up the luggage cart when we received a call from the front desk at 11:30am ordering us out of the room (check-out time was 11:30am). My wife explained that we were loading the cart and would be out in a few minutes, only to be told that we would be charged for another day if we didn't vacate immediately. My wife hobbled up to the front desk while I loaded the car, only to be hassled about our (10 minute) late check-out again, even thought there were NO housekeeping staff yet servicing the building and certainly no one waiting impatiently to service our room.
I understand that hotel properties must enforce check-out guidelines and have no problem with a call from the front desk to ensure we were on our way out. But, there's absolutely no excuse for threats or lack of courtesy. In all our years of travel (17 countries, close to 300 cities) this has NEVER happened before.
Oh, one more thing. . .the two story town house units have entry doors on the first and second floors. We discovered the day AFTER our mid-week service that the upstairs door had not been relocked, leaving our room unsecured for about 20 hours. Fortunately, I noticed the unlocked door the next morning and relocked it, but not before sleeping in an unlocked bedroom over night. (This is not the door one normally uses to exit and enter the town house and so we simply didn't think to check it again after our initial arrival.)
