In by the lake was a perfect stay for our short girls weekend. We reserved the room with the full kitchen and it was more than perfect so we didn't have to eat out each meal! The view was over a parking lot but still beautiful as we were not in the room much! Staff is wonderful!

Stayed here for 1 night. Friendly check in staff but the hotel needs and overhaul. Hallways are shabby and the room had a damp smell. The photos are misleading. If i was staying longer I would have most likely checked out early and moved elsewhere. The view over the busy main road was the high point with a lovely outlook... More

I mistakenly let my boyfriend book this place especially after reading some of the reviews on here. After all, it was ranked 1 number worse than the place we stayed last year for the same event my boyfriend was doing, the death ride. So I went with little expectation. The young men who checked us in were nice. I asked... More

Love the location being just across the street from the lake and nearby restaurants, supermarket and beach areas. Typical lodge type hotel, rates were moderate and much cheaper than other hotels that were right on the lake shore or newer casino hotels on the "Tahoe Strip". When we arrived in the room, the balcony door was closed and A/C off,... More

Replace the old carpet. It smells. Paid for lake view room but did not get a good view of the lake. Housekeeping staff should have a checklist to make sure everything is in order. No bath mat on the second day. Lower the pressure on your shower; we have drought in CA.

Great views of the lake!!!! We stayed over the 4th of July holiday so it was the perfect location to view fireworks and wasn't in the middle of the crowded area of town. Easily rode bicycles into good shopping and restaurant area.

Rooms in rough shape. Water facet did not work, toilet ran all night long. No heat only a fan with musty smell. Would not recommend. The property was dated, rooms were small and a normal sized man could not fit in the sink area.
