This is a terrific & inexpensive place to stay in Tahoe, as long as you don’t mind sacrificing décor for comfort.
I unexpectedly won tickets to see Brad Paisley at Harvey’s (and it was Labor Day Weekend), so had to scramble to find a room on one of the busiest weekends of the year. Expecting to not find any that didn’t cost a fortune, I was amazed that Hacienda was able to accommodate. I got a better deal by calling them directly than any online hotel site was offering. For a very reasonable price, we got a queen sized bed, non-smoking room, with a fridge, microwave & hot tub. Our parking spot was right in front of the room, which was very convenient.
The hot tub was kind of funny, because you have to fill it up with a regular bath tub faucet. It took about ½ hour for it to fill completely. But once it was full, I didn’t ever want to get out. The jets worked wonderfully and the hotel must have unlimited hot water supply, because the water coming out of the faucet never cooled down. Not all rooms have hot tubs, so you do need to request it. We just got lucky and got one by accident. They also have a nice outdoor pool and hot tub.
The bed was extremely comfortable!! I’ve stayed in many hotels with much nicer room appearances, but whose beds were horribly uncomfortable. This bed was like sleeping on a cloud. Another perk was the fridge/microwave in the room.
The only down side was that our room didn’t have a working air conditioner – but that wasn’t too big of a deal because we were only in the room at night. If you are staying during extra hot months, be sure to request a room with air conditioning. Also, the bathroom door was warped and wouldn’t open or close all the way, so the bathroom didn’t offer much in the way of privacy.
Who might not like it? Prissy people who focus on the cosmetics appearance of the room. Although the room was clean, it did have peeling wallpaper and a general “old” appearance. It also had a small old-school TV set. But who goes to Tahoe to watch TV?!
Who will like it? Anyone who wants conveniences & and a comfortable bed. I’d trade peeling wallpaper and a warped door for a hot tub and cloud bed any day of the week!
The staff was very friendly & overall it was a great stay. We will book there again for our next Tahoe visit!
