“Very Nice Resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

We did a timeshare exchange to The Ridge and stayed in one of their hotel suite type rooms. It was one of the "lock off" rooms and unfortunately was in the bottom floor of the Terrace building with NO view. We looked out onto a huge concrete wall. Very disappointing. The resort itself is very nice, but we just we not that impressed. It is located at the top of Heavenly and was quite windy and much colder than down at lake level. There is a deli that is open at certain times of the day, and a restaurant that is only open on the weekends. Their market has some basic food items.

Room Tip: Be sure to inquire about the view when you make your reservation. Many of the Terrace building room...

Difficult to find without instructions, this is a complex of buildings, some rooms offering a great view over the valley. We had a microwave, fridge, coffee maker (with no instructions), a bedside light plugged in to a non working socket, another broken one on a table. There were also maintenance issues in the corridor outside. One window screen was broken. We were told this was a refurbished room.

What really upset us was the we checked in at about 7.30 after a very long drive and were given a leaflet about dinner - a good looking 3 course meal at a sensible price. At 7.55 we came from our room looking for the restaurant. I asked a member of staff where it was and they directed me up stairs to a closed restaurant - ie it had never been open. We then found the bar and the barman told us that the other restaurant was in another building we could drive to. However, he was closing at 8.00 and there was a single choice of stir fry in a cafe area downstairs, also closing at 8.00. We succumbed to that. then a guest told us we could have got a free shuttle bus to the other restaurant.

So, we were given inadequate and misleading information and it spoiled our evening. They were 'in between' seasons and the general attitude of the staff showed.

I asked at the Concierge Desk about boat trips and was directed into the gift shop. There they admitted to only booking one operator, but said that the Concierge could provide details of others. I explained that the Concierge had directed me to them and she simply shrugged her shoulders, as much as to say 'well that is what you get'.

There is a difference between Concierge and 'lady sat behind a desk' and I suggest that that change the sign on her desk to the latter.

If ya are looking for a nice and clean place to stay this is it. Review is for a 1bedroom suite. Very well maintained and kid friendly. On-site they have activities like miniature golf, jacuzzi's, pool with views and all other goodies. Its located uphill so views are a added bonus. The staff is super friendly and eager to please and work with ya. Their parking garage has ample space easy access. Suites are very well equipped with a full size kitchen with all untensils, full size refrigerator. The living room has a sofa bed which is very comfortable and 2adults can comfortably sleep on it. If ya like skiing they have enough snow in that area to make it happen.

In a nutshell, if ya want a well maintained place to stay and can afford to stay off the Lake Tahoe Blvd area this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Try to book a room on the weekdays to get a better rate.

This was a very nice place to stay. I loved the pool area and the room was wonderful! However the room we stayed in did not have good internet access. We paid $20 for the wifi. They did give us our $20 back after we told them that the internet was not working. The place was located at over 7000 ft elevation on a curvy road so I did get a little car sick anytime we went anywhere. Besides that I enjoyed this place!

4 nights in May, it's a big complex but well run. Staff were great on arrival, very polite an helpful, gave us free wifi. Room was nice and big, gas fire, kitchenette, comfy beds. The outdoor pool was lovely even though it snowed, hot tub was nice, jacuzzis everywhere as far as I could see. There are a lot of road works on the way up to the hotel on kingsbury grade but if it's only for a few nights it's fine. If you do stay, go to the Genoa bar, 20 mins away and get food in Jt's basque restaurant near by. Cheap, lovely and filling. I'd stay again. I'd avoid the fox and hound.

The Ridge Tahoe was one of the places we stayed for a week on our epic 4 month road trip. You can find my comprehensive review of The Ridge Tahoe at http://homesweetroad.com/the-ridge-tahoe-review/ where i have posted pics and tips if you decide to go there.

What we liked about The Ridge Tahoe:

Views
Activities galore
Kids Club
Shuttles to town
Ski-in Ski-out during ski season
Jacuzzi tub!

What we didn’t like about The Ridge Tahoe:

No air conditioning – Please DO NOT underestimate the importance of this one thing
Farther from the lake and town then we’d like

VERDICT:

We would go to The Ridge Tahoe again for sure during ski season or cooler months, but NEVER during the summer due to the absence of AC. I loved all the activities but would plan better to take full advantage of them next time. Also, if we were planning on spending most of our time near the lake I would find other accommodations. It’s a bit of a drive. All in all we had a wonderful time there.

I sincerely hope this review helps make your decision as to whether or not you should stay there a little easier!

Best,
Emily Oak
