“4 star in a 5 star location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

OK...location is 5 star....hotel is 4 star...a 3-4 minute walk to either the beach or the main drag...cannot beat that for the price...free cooked to order breakfast(if you wake up on time there is NO wait)...rooms are quite small but have all the amenities...great TV selection...decent parking..you can walk to the gondola.

The location of the hotel is very good it has close proximity to all the facilities near south lake Tahoe. However the staff was not very helpful or friendly. There is also no washer /dryer onsite for guests who would like to stay longer especially if you are visiting with children and want to visit the beach more days. The rooms are on the smaller side.

South Lake Tahoe is a beautiful place to visit. We enjoy bicycle riding, the lake & the casino. The Station House Inn is a good central to location to all. Its clean, nice restaurant & friendly staff. The hotel grounds are nicely landscaped with beautiful seasonal flowers. We would differently stay at this hotel again.

Location can't be beat. On a quiet street, but a very short walk to the shore and the gondola/main street. You can park your car, and walk everywhere. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We stopped by one afternoon to ask about a restaurant we were considering for dinner. The next day - when checking out - the same person remembered us and asked about the restaurant. The rooms are clean and comfortable, although the furniture is a bit dated. The rooms don't have much in the way of amenities, but you don't spend time in your room anyway. There is a coffee maker and 1 small package of coffee. The hotel includes a free hot breakfast - you go to the restaurant and order off a menu. It was good, much better than most free hotel breakfasts. Pool / hot tub is clean and well maintained - they provided some pool noodles and a few balls. There's also a little window where you can order food and drinks from the restaurant by the pool. Only real complaint is the restaurant / bar closes at 9:30 - we often like to have a cocktail at the hotel bar before going out or bed, and when the bar closes at 9:30 - that's hard to do.

Room Tip: There's no elevators, so if stairs are an issue for you - get a ground floor room.

The rooms are small but adequate. The restaurant is excellent and the cooked-to-order breakfast is included in the price of the room. The location is good...not too far from a beach and within walking distance of some shopping.

For a stay in South Lake Tahoe, this hotel fits the bill. It is a somewhat older hotel, but they take care of the rooms and their guests very well. Breakfast is included at the onsite restaurant with at least 12 meal choices and a special of the day. The walk to the beach entry pass included with stay) is about 5 minutes at the most. Shopping ,the Heavenly Gondola, and some casinos were also in walking distance.

We had a great time during our visit to South Lake Tahoe. The Staff was friendly and helped us with any question. The room was good but the carpets need to be cleaned to prevent the strange smell on the room. The room needed more light specially if you are planning to work. It's too dark.
