“Rooms like an oven.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

The resort itself, is very nice with everything you could want. Location and views are great. They provide shuttle service to town and casinos, and also around the resort. Staff was excellent. The maid service seemed a little lazy. They were to exchange our towels daily, and that didn't get done, so on the 3rd day I had to call them. There is no AC. I would never go in warm weather months. Even if it is 60 degrees outside, the room is like an oven. We did not get one good night sleep in 2 weeks. There is a fan in the room and they provide a small portable fan, but it is still very hot. They do not provide shampoo either. I have never stayed in a place that didn't provide shampoo.

Pretty far out of town, but the Blue Go goes there and will take you to town for free. LOVED the view from our room!!! There were a couple of staff members who went out of their way to make things comfortable for us. Lots of fun activities for the family. There is no a/c, but with the windows open, it was still comfortable in July. Would love to stay here again!

Room Tip: Our room was in the tower, and we had a GREAT view. We had room 1846.

My family and I have gone to The Ridge Tahoe for over a decade and enjoy every stay! There are many wonderful views and amenities in the rooms to enjoy. I always enjoy the spa after a long day skiing or hiking.

I stayed at the Ridge in early May, and the weather was very nice, in the 80s. The main pool and spa was open, the secondary pool opened mid-week while I was there. The 1 br apartment had a full kitchen and soaking bathtub, with a separate shower. Places to stow clothes during the one week stay, and an in-suite laundry! And though there was no A/C, there were overhead fans to keep the room cool. The room did have a small balcony, but the view from my condo was not very good. Try to get a room facing east towards Reno. That valley view was spectacular.

I loved the daily exercise classes in the morning, great way to start the day. They also had evening movies. Plan to cook your own meals, though. The restaurant at this place was closed due to the earliness of the season. However, it was only 8 miles to So Lake Tahoe and restaurants at Stateline, so there were plenty of options for dining out. The Chart House was especially wonderful, and only about 5 miles from the resort.

THE BEST, though, was that I signed up for a cooking class with Chef Stephan, and even though I was the only one present, he proceeded to give me the royal tour of his kitchen and several great tips on marinating, grilling, reductions for sauces, etc, and we had a wonderful dinner of shrimp salad, grilled chicken with veggies, and lava cake for dessert. It was well worth the $95.

I would definitely recommend this place for a getaway. I was by myself and still had a great time.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the valley towards Reno...

I got this resort for Tahoe in really cheap price compared to others, was worried little bit as it was 8 mile far from downtown and lake shore, but it came like a great surprise....it is really out from that downtown casino crowd, on mountain top ,....wow...you will feel you are in vacation....but can reach lake in 10 mins..
We reached there early, but they allowed us early check In as room was ready, that is great....a really big resort, you have pretty much everything, sauna, swimming pool, children's park, indoor games, kids activities, movies, and tons of things......we got a condo on tower building fifth floor....
We requested for a view room....got completely mesmerized by the view, oh mine,..it was really gorgeous...amenities, room decor, balcony and full glass window in living room view.....I can give five stars just for this ....It was a one bedroom condo, everything you need they have kept, tons of glass sets, dishes and kitchen accessories in brand new wonderful kitchen.....sofa, dining table, all the lampshades and decor was very elegant...two tv s, DVD players, fireplace, dishwasher, washing machine too...so stay was awesome...my kid loved the resort...they have a tourist centre for all discount tickets and that lady wad really helpful, there was a store where you can get medicines, fruits, frozen entrees and souvenirs...what more we can ask for,,ohh they have sleep number bed with remote and a deep wonderful tub....
Some problems, you need to pay for wifi ,that is disappointing.. They don't have AC ,it was hot in June, they gave a fan in bedroom,but still hot...and you cannot ask for coffee and creamers daily...

Room Tip: Ask for mountain view room..

The property is located on top of Kingsbury Grade, which is about 15 minutes from Hwy. 50. The resort has several buildings, and have a very convenient bus that will take you around as well as to the casinos. There are plenty of planned activities at the resort. There is 1 deli and 1 restaurant. The restaurant was not open while we were there. They do have a happy hour in the bar, but the prices are pretty high.

We were there for 1 week, and had a 2 bedroom unit with a fireplace. Kitchen is well-equipped, and the beds are all Sleep Numbers. The pillows were too puffy for me. The resort gives you a complimentary cleaning by the maid service halfway through your stay. The carpet needed vacuumed better when we originally arrived. The windows and doors leak cold air, so if you went in the winter, that might make it uncomfortable.

Room Tip: We were in the Naegle 10 building. The view was of pine trees, which was nice. If you were in the...

We stayed at The Ridge from June 10 - June 14 and, it was "almost" the perfect stay. The room was very clean - a decent size - and with a positive surprise - a gas fireplace. This came in handy for the cool evenings when we slept with the windows partially open.

The "windows partially open" comment was the reason it wasn't the "perfect" stay as The Ridge has no A/C in their rooms and, even in early June, the weather is turning very warm during the day - rapidly heating up the rooms. The Ridge does supply an old fashioned box fan (apparently in every room) so we were able to get air circulating.

Pretty warm in the room during the day - opening the windows when we returned in the evening to cool things off - and needing to turn the fireplace on over night as things cool down overnight.

The staff was friendly and while The Ridge is definitely off the beaten path (it takes a good 20 minutes to get to and from town due to the mountain roads), the scenery from the location is outstanding and well worth the trip.

We only had one meal at The Ridge and it was good (though pricy).

Room Tip: We stayed in the Tower - 9th floor - which opened to some fantastic views of the valley below. (Be...
