Stayed in a lake-view room in Bldg D, 2nd floor which had a nice view of the lake and was relatively quiet except for what sounded like an elephant pacing back & forth in the room above us. The room itself was nice; recently remodeled with a fireplace, a small seating area and a small balcony. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. We did have a problem with the hot water. Sometimes it would take several minutes for the water to heat up. There's an onsite sports bar/pub (Sidelines) but we didn't eat there. Tried to get a beer there and watch the game but was told you had to order at least one food item in order to order drinks - what? Ok. So we left. I was a little disappointed that they didn't offer breakfast in the morning. There's a nice pool, however the hot tub was closed (thanks COVID). The beach was pretty decent and there was a cool Tiki bar with picnic tables. The hotel is dog-friendly and I was sad we didn't bring our little mutt. Maybe next time. The general location is good, with a Safeway right across the street and several small restaurants and bakeries near by. It's not really walking distance to the casinos, however. I think it's about 1.5 miles each way to the stateline.

This place should have no star rating because it's filthy and worst house keeping. Trash and towels were everywhere in the hallway. People smoke weed at night and you can really smell it. Room is small and not worth the price I paid. I'd definitely stay away from this place even if they give a deep discount. Not worth it.

We loved our room that was right on the beach. It had tall pine trees, our own patio and a glorious view of the lake. We also enjoyed having the Tiki Bar and the restaurant next door. Truly, I would want the exact same room next time we come to Tahoe! As a side note, I thought I left a charger in the room and when I called, the manage couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.

the hotel is clean enough, outdated and the staff is friendly but we paid 200$ for a “garden view” room. Apparently their garden is an asphalt garden as all we got was the parking lot. Considering the hotel was not even close to full, i would have expected a bit more for the price tag:
