First time in Lake Tahoe, and we wanted to be right in the heart of things in the Stateline area for under $100/night. Montebleu was a good place for that. There are a lot of positives and a few negatives that you have to consider before booking, but overall, after seeing the other options, I was quite happy with my choice. The Harrah's was GROSS!
-Nice casino with good circulation (bc apparently smoking indoors in NV is still legal. Sigh.)
-GREAT restaurants (amazing steakhouse though a bit pricey, and Cafe du Soleil for breakfast was delicious!)
-Awesome & huge indoor pool/hot tub (even has a waterfall)
-Perfect location and & close to everything (restaurants, other casinos, outdoor activities)
-Friendly & accommodating staff after a minor hiccup (I'll get to the specifics in the "cons")
-Large rooms and bathroom
-Great price. Can't beat $70/night
-Even though the rooms leave something to be desired, the bed was clean and comfy!
-Attentive maid service...brightened up our room daily.
-Huge Jacuzzi tub/shower
-Ask for a higher floor....great views!
-Free parking (I've stayed a lot of places and this is a luxury!)
-Responsive to noise issues (explanation in "cons")
-Attentive casino cocktail waitresses
-Though the casino floor and lobby has been recently updated (casino cheesy, but updated), the rooms & bathroom are super dated. Like a 1990s take on Victorian decor. They should spend the $$ to update them. My first reaction after stepping off of the elevator onto the 8th floor was....OMG, I'm having second thoughts....I eventually adjusted.
-Our first room was dirty. Again, super great staff quickly gave us another room, but the first one had a bathtub that was half full and what looked like wood shavings all over the floor.
-Jacuzzi tub is not so easy to get in and out of, and I'm in my 20s! I feel sorry for old people.
-Thin walls. It wasn't an issue until Friday night, and we were a few doors down from a rowdy party where 20+ people had gathered in a room around 11pm to start blaring music and scream. Literally, one girl was screaming. Thankfully, a lovely female night guard showed up immediately after another room complained (I didn't even have to call she was so fast!). Kicked everyone out, and the situation was diffused. Our savior!
Overall, I enjoyed our time there. A few tweaks here and there to the rooms would improve things for future guests, but the staff really did turn things around for us. A positive experience!
Higher floors for great views!
