“Tired”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

There was a time when South Lake Tahoe was just as good as Las Vegas when it came to casinos. Unfortunately, that time has passed.

Harveys is managed by Harrah's across the street and both are long past their prime. Check in was a pain. First of all, it's not easy to find the lobby coming from the parking garage. You have to walk all the way through the casino. I guess that's done on purpose.

I asked for a lakeview room on an upper floor. The average room rate posted here and on other sites, does not include their new Resort Fee. Which is a junk fee charging you for what you used to get for free; mainly pool use.

My room was ok, except for the obstructed lake view (I was told that that was their lakeview). I didn't try any of their eateries, they looked over priced and gross.

On the whole, I'd give this place a "fair" or 3 star rating. I've stayed here before and it was much better. I know the management could do better if they wanted to, but clearly they don't, so I wont be staying here again.

Room Tip: Be sure to use your AAA card when you check in.

We stayed at Harveys on a Wednesday and Thursday night but got stung by high prices due to a golf tournament which we had nothing to do with. Our first night was $99 and our 2nd night was $300. With the taxes and resort fee the bill camed to $500 for the 2 nights. We accepted that but the room was not good. There was a good bed but that was about it. The bath tub had a huge chip missing. Also missing tiles around the tub. Missing Fridge, missing coffee maker, missing desk. There was a shrunk down dresser that must have come from another room and a small TV. No free movies. There was a small round table and 2 chairs. We got a fridge and the coffee maker after we asked. The first person said the fridge would come at no cost. The second wanted to charge us $10. We did end up getting it for free. The Resort fee gives you free Wifi for one device for each day. It gives you use of a fairly nice execise room. It gives you use of a pool, I have seen better pools at motels. All in all, the bed was good and my husband won at poker with a royal flush so that made up for the room. Casino is popular and jumping.

We stayed at Harvey's for the Celebrity Golf Tournament which we've been coming to for 15 years. It used to be fairly nice but now is REALLY run down. The carpet is dirty and worn, the furniture is old. Just basically very outdated. The staff personnel are fine (love the Starbucks people!) but Harrah's/Harvey's needs to put some money into this place ASAP to keep people coming back.

We booked through a third party and was informed that pets under 25 pounds were free of charge. Arrived at check in and was told they only had 8 pet friendly rooms and they were all booked! Really? How many hundreds of rooms do they have here? The price for the room was $78 on a Sunday night. The manager Alyssa Mendez would not cooperate in any way. She simply stated she could put us in another room on the "Pet floor" (no mention previously of that either) for an additional $75.00. Now I realize that obviously the third party we booked though had some incorrect data regarding pets at Harvey's, but they were very apologetic and refunded our money immediately. Harvey's management apparently would rather watch a disappointed and angry traveler leave their hotel before showing some real customer service. By the way, my dog is 15 pounds of well trained fluff.

Our room was on the 14TH floor. The mini fridge was at least 15 years old and had rust in it. The carpet was very old and worn out. The bathroom was the only updated part of the room. The hotel itself needs a remodel inside and out.
:(

Given the price per night, I just expected more. This property is VERY dated and sadly in need of renovation. Our mountain view room was very cramped and the walls were super thin. We not only heard every noise from the hallway, but felt like the people in the next room were conversing in our room. If/when this property gets its needed makeover, I think sound insulation materials should be a top priority. I was also disappointed that there was no in-room safe to secure valuables.

We visited the casino at Harrah's and thought it was markedly nicer/newer than Harveys and have to wonder if the rooms are similarly nicer. Needless to say, we would not stay at Harveys again and would check out Harrah's or another property.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a friends wedding that was up on Heavenly Mountain. So everyone that attended the wedding, stayed at Harveys.
I thought the rooms were great size, comfortble beds, large bathrooms.
There is a swimming pool that could be a little bigger, but not a huge issue with us. The location is good for Lake Tahoe. You can walk to a lot of shops, bars, restaurants.
The hotel has options of Starbucks and restaurants. There's a nice bar/restaurant up on the 19th floor, and Cabo Wabo isn't bad either. We had drinks and a late lunch there. Good food.
All in all - i would recommend the hotel. Service and front desk was nice too. Our refrigerator wasn't working, and they brought a brand new one up within 10 minutes.
