This HIE is set back from the busy road so the rooms are quiet but guests can still walk to restaurants and stores. We received extensive help from the from the desk with ideas for restaurants and attractions we wouldn't have thought of such as a trip to Virginia City. The rooms are well designed and nicely decorated.

This was a uniquely designed Holiday Inn Express in that it fit architecturally into its surroundings. That aside, the room was spacious and spotless. Breakfast was very good; wi-fi was excellent. The hotel was located a short walk from the Stateline casinos, and there were many good restaurant choices. Front desk staff were very helpful with restaurant and touring suggestions....

Stayed her for one night passing through Lake Tahoe...This place was ok, however, I normally expect more from a HI Express. I have no complaints. The rooms open to the exterior, which I do not like.

I stayed here for one night only as I was traveling through the area on a cross-country trip. The rooms were pretty standard and the mattress a bit too soft for my liking, but everything was sooooo clean! I thought the hotel was brand new and was shocked to find out it was 17 years old. 2 big thumbs up...

This hotel was everything you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. We only stayed there one night and the room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was very busy though and there was not a lot of space.

Had a wonderful room and service. Breakfast was great. Normally we are only offered pastries but here there was a large and tasty selection that even my picky eaters ate. Located perfectly near stores and restaurants. Beautiful views. Service Was wonderful. We will definitely be staying again.
