“Super clean - no frills but staff is friendly and helpful.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

A clean two-story hotel located just a wink off of the main drag so it was quiet yet just a 5 minute walk to the Heavenly gondola and shopping plazas. Would be a great location for skiing; albeit I'd opt for a quick drive if carrying equipment. An even shorter walk to the lake if you wanted to go to the beach and/or playground

Great breakfast ... complimentary full sit-down breakfast with specials like made to order fresh blueberry pancakes. Not a continental buffet of pastries.

Not a luxurious place, but in looking at the area there were not many options that were. The staff was super pleasant and very nice. The facility quiet and safe. The bed had seen better days, the decor was antiquated and the bathroom needed updating however it was very clean and that is quite important as several folks were staying elsewhere and that was their complaint. I would recommend a less than chic decor for clean everything, new linens and pleasant service every day.

Room Tip: Ask for a second level room - so headlights don't come through your window; It also feels safer.

Stayed at this hotel for three nights in November. Originally got the reservation on Priceline--very happy we did! The property is clean and just steps to the Lake Tahoe beach. Our room was very spacious, and included a mini fridge. The hotel serves up complimentary breakfast at the attached restaurant, which is convenient and good! We will definitely return to this property in future trips!

Room Tip: The King room is very spacious. If you select a room on the second floor, you have a nice view of th...

Upon entering into a very appealing lobby the front desk help were extremely helpful and personal. We were able to check in very early and leave our luggage while we skied. We stayed here only one night. It was comfortable and very quiet!!!! I love having access to the outside rather than an inside corridor.Fresh country air is good!!! The room is a bit dated and is overcrowded w/too much furniture . The comforters are nice and a pleasant change from the typical dark colors. The beds in the double rooms seem to be of better quality than the king beds. Also for convenience there are two sinks, one in the shower area and the other is outside.

The breakfast is a treat! Not only do you order off the menu but the waiters are unbelievably friendly and are extremely happy to help you in any way.

This was a good experience!

I stayed there one night while enroute to Utah and found the service very good. Nice room but the king sized bed was HORRIBLE! I mentioned this during my BW review. Otherwise a great spot right up a walkway to Heavenly Village. The free breakfast is cooked to order and served promptly.

for the price the location is excellent. a 5 min walk to the gondola casinos or lake. Incredible. Although breakfast is included remember to take your tip money with you (this is a foreign concept for an australian). Has a hot tub. walls are a bit thin but just hope your neighbours are quiet

This is our favorite South Shore place to stay. Clean & quite rooms with a great free full on breakfast. Nice and close to Heavenly Valley with a shuttle nearby. The REAL reason, though, is my wife's love of escargot! Lew Mar Nel's has been our favorite place in Tahoe for a good meal for at least 2 decades. After a hard day of skiing you can sit in the hot tub and watch the snowcats groom the slopes. A short walk to dinner and close to the lake for an after dinner walk. The rooms are well stocked with everything you need. Just a great place to stay.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong with any of the upstairs rooms. When your room faces the mountains (Bldg. 1...
