The Resort at Squaw Creek is quite beautiful with excellent service. They offer valet parking for I believe $20/night or free self parking which is a bit of a walk. Fortunately, the valet parking was included in a Groupon that we purchased. When you walk into the front lobby, there are floor to ceiling windows overlooking the valley and golf course with tables set-up for checkers and chess inside. After you check-in, you walk outside through their gift shops (there were a handful including a toy store) and to the hotel portion of the resort. We had a room with two queen beds (2 adults and 2 kids) that had what they call a valley view, which was beautiful. There are large windows in the room with a sitting ledge that is nice to sit on and read a book while looking out at the golf course and mountains that surround it. The room was average hotel size, but very warmly decorated. The beds were extremely comfortable and the bathroom was spacious. We also couldn't hear our neighbors at all. The rest of the resort included several restaurants, a spa, golf course, walking trails (kid friendly), gym, game room, ice skating rink (winter only), and a pool area that had one very large pool, one small splash pool with a waterside, one toddler pool with sand and three hot tubs. There was also a pool side restaurant and bar.

We ate at four of the restaurants on site. The pool restaurant called, the Oasis had the same food as Sandy's Pub even though on the website, it says that they were introducing a Baja grill menu which they didn't have and no one seemed to know about when I asked about it. That was a little disappointing. They have a handful of tables that you can sit as well as a handful of bar stools at the bar or you can order the food and drinks to have by your lounge chair by the pool. There are waiters who will come up to your lounge chairs and take your order which was nice. We also ate at Sandy's Pub which seemed to be the most popular restaurant on site. It was a casual restaurant with a decent sized menu as well as a kids menu. The food was very good and they had some unique beers on tap which were nice to try. They also offer a smores plate which you can use to make smores directly outside of the restaurant at the fire pit. They give you a skewer to roast the marshmallows on and enough chocolate (3 Hersey bars), marshmallows and graham crackers to make 6 large smores or 12 regular sized smores. I think they charged $10 for everything. I would recommend eating between 5 and 6 or else you're going to have a decent wait. The final restaurant we ate at was Six Peaks Grille which would be considered their fine dining restaurant. The food and ambiance was great. We even brought our kids (4 and 7) and they had a kids menu for them. We dressed up a little bit and they put us in a room in the back with a fireplace. It looked like they had more casual dining in the front of the restaurant as well a patio overlooking the valley. We also had a breakfast buffet at Cascades every morning. For 2 kids and 2 adults, it was about $50 plus tip, but that was covered with our Groupon which was great. They had a good assortment of hot food including a made to order omelet bar, pancake bar with lots of fixings, fruit and pastries.

Overall, we really enjoyed our time at the resort and will definitely be back next time we go to Lake Tahoe.

Room Tip: Try to get a valley view room. It was great to walk in your room everyday and look out at the valley...

We are glad that you had the opportunity to dine with your family at Six Peaks Grille and Sandy's Pub and we will be sure to have the new Baja Grill menu on hand at all times when the Oasis Grill is open. We hope you and your family return soon to enjoy the S'mores by the fireplace again, it may be our most fun dessert!

We stayed one night at the lodge as we were passing through the area. We reserved our room through the VISA Signature card as this is included in their luxury hotel collection. As such we received a room upgrade, complimentary cheese, fruit, and crackers, and several other amenities (all worth it). We arrived late afternoon, had time for a late afternoon snack enjoying the view overlooking the pool. We drove down to Olympic Village. The shops were closed but it was nice to see the area. I can only imagine how busy it must be during ski season. For dinner we ordered pizza at the deli and took it back to our room. Very good pizza.

Room was very comfortable-a king fireplace suite-loverlooking golf course. Bathroom was large and had a walk in tiled shower.

In the morning, I ran to the village area using the bike path.

Our breakfast was included-a wonderful breakfast buffet with lots of options.

What impressed me most was the staff's responses to guest. One staff member sent a complimentary bottle of ginger ale to a guest who was ill. Another manager was making sure that the desk clerks knew which groups were staying and their specific details. Our waiters were very attentive and friendly.

We would like to come back when we have more time and explore more of the grounds.

Green Features: The hotel used pump bottles of body wash and shampoo in the showers. One of the pumps was hard to use. At first I thought it was empty but after trying several times, decided it was just the pump inself causing the problem.

Took a weekend trip to Tahoe and decided to try Squaw Creek Resort. We booked a one bedroom fireplace suite. When we arrived we were disappointed to end up with a view over the parking lot and the hillside but that was not terrible. The room was nice, clean and comfortable.
The bed however was horrible. Both of us ended up waking up at 3am with terrible neck aches. The bed and pillows are hard and uncomfortable. We only stayed two nights and I am not sure I could have done a third.

On Sat we took a walk to the village and then in the afternoon decided to go swimming and hang out by the pool. The pools are advertised as heated year round. My idea of a heated pool and theirs is vastly different. There were lots of adults by the pool and in the hot tubs and in the kiddie pool but no one was in the main swimming pool. The reason is that it was ice cold. We ventured in and swam two laps and then had to get out. It was literally painfull. Everyone at the pool was not happy about it and talking about how cold it was. People tried to get in and immediately got back out. For what we paid for the room and the resort fee add on I expected to be able to use the pool. On Sat night we decided to fill out the door card to have breakfast delivered to our room the next morning. We had reservations for the ropes course and wanted to eat before we went. We filled it out and hung it on the door. The next morning our breakfast was not delivered and we found the card still hanging on the door. It had never been picked up. We then had to quickly pack and go find somewhere to eat so we were not late. We liked the room, the way the resort looked, the people who worked there were very nice, the pub had good food and we liked sitting by the fire pit having a drink after dinner. However there were enough things we didn't like that we would go somewhere else next time.

We had a beautiful stay. If I were to change anything, I would have requested a room overlooking the pool area not the Mountain side. Although it was very clean and quiet. The staff went out of there way to assist you and make your stay was the best. Enjoyed the pool/jacuzzi area and the exercise facility was really nice and very clean. I would like to come back for ski season :)

Room Tip: we were on the Mountain side - I would recommend overlooking the pool area - much better views.

Very pretty grounds, decks and common areas. Loved the outdoor fireplace at night. Spectacular views. Our room was spacious enough (king deluxe) and very clean. Liked the wet bar, which also included a refrigerator and microwave. Decent stemware and glasses which was a plus for having a cocktail or glass of wine in the room before heading out for dinner. Great water pressure in the shower! The bed was amazingly comfortable with nice linens. Had dinner at both Sandy's Pub and the Six Peaks Grill and room service from Sweet Potatoes Deli. The pub was casual and the food was good. Dinner at Six Peaks was amazing: delicious fine dining, a nice wine selection and impeccable service. Lunch from the deli was good as well. Wish we had more than two nights to stay and would definitely go back again.

Other than the bell service which was not helpful at all (they saw my 10 year old son walking with two suitcases and no offer to help), everyone at the hotel was extremely friendly and they all tried very hard to make sure that we had a wonderful stay. From the girl at the pool bar, to the staff at the Deli, everyone served with a big smile. Bravo!
