You'll have easy access to the beach right across the street, breakfast in the morning and be within walking distance to several very good restaurants. The only ding is the traffic. The cars never stop. However, at night it was not a problem as we had the slider closed. Our room was large, clean and had a nice view of the lake. The nice young woman at the front desk was very helpful with information. She makes a mean fruit salad, too!
The FireLite Lodge delivers a lot for your money.
Tip: drive to Truckee. It's a cool town
