For years this place was the queen of Lake Tahoe. For the last few decades it’s been a run down dive. But many of us have high hopes for this third attempt to breath new life into the old girl. Currently closed for renovation.

My wife and I stayed here last February for a weekend skiing trip to Tahoe. Usually "you get what you pay for" is pretty accurate (Motel 6, Days Inn, etc). In this situation it is not true. This place is advertised as a resort but...More
