My son and I stayed for 4 nights and found the hotel clean and comfortable. The hotel is w/in walking distance to the gondola, village and casinos. The front desk staff is helpful and knowledgable about certain tours and stores. When they don't know, they will find out for you. The breakfast was a great start before a day of... More

This hotel is such a deal. The rooms were as nice, if not nicer, than many Sheratons I have stayed in! Granite bathroom counters, nice amenities in each room such a mini-fridge, microwave, nice sitting area, etc. Great beds, even a nice selection of pillows, including some that were labeled soft and some lableled firm. Trust me, I have stayed... More

Great Hotel. Spent 3 nights there. First 2 nights were spent in a 2 bedroom each with their own king bed room number 210. Last night was spent in a room with 2 queens room 201. Overall the place is excelent for the price and the property seems quite perfect if you want to be in the "Heavenly Village" area.... More

This is a great hotel. It has Great Location, Great Value, Great Rooms and Great Service. The spa was very nice too. I enjoyed my stay in the hotel immensely. The complemantary wireless internet and breakfast just added to a good experience. All this for less than $90/day. What else could you ask in a hotel?

Wife and I stayed here summer 2006. This HI Express is a perfect location. We had a nice 3rd story room overlooking the pool. There is a traffic light coming into the lot which makes it easy to get out during heavy traffic. Fairly easy walk to casinos, ski lifts, shopping and restaurants (good sushi joint right across the street).... More

My wife and I stayed one night at the Holiday Inn Express, South Lake Tahoe during Veteran's Day weekend. Although we live in Sacramento, we had not been to Tahoe in a while. What a transformation! The casinos have been renovated and the three block area before the stateline has been rebuilt with massive wood and stone structures that house... More

We stayed here on 10/8/06 for 1 night while traveling to Yosemite. We had spent the night before at another HI Express which was great, so this room was a letdown. Tired carpeting and decor but it was clean and quiet even though it had exterior doors and corridors. The bed was softer than the HI Express the night before... More

Pleasantly surprised by rooms in this holiday inn express. Seemed to be relatively new or recently renovated. Comfy beds, nice spacious bathroom. Fridge, TV, microwave. Continental breakfast above average in quality and selection. Open coffee bar all day. Heated pool. Found this place a little expensive for a holiday inn, but the South Lake Tahoe area was not cheap. Staff... More

This place has seriously gone down hill! The staff is now ridiculously rude and offensive. I witnessed them insult several guests. This was the second time I stayed at the HIE. The first time was very pleasant. This second stay, however, was shocking! I have never seen such an immature and unprofessional front desk staff. I can't believe a national... More
