This is my 3rd visit to the hotel its mid December. There’s 5 feet of snow and the restaurant isn’t open and there’s no hot water. In fact my last trip here the “hot water was on the fritz” so i think this is an issue. The staff are lovely the facilities great. It’s close to the lifts. But this hot water & food issue is kind of a problem. Not having a hot shower sucks.

We came to Plumpjack Squaw Valley on July 26, 2021. We are sailing when an electrical storm forced us back to Whale Beach in Nevada. We came across the lake with 6 foot+ waves. We arrived at Plumpjack to no valet, no front desk person and pouring rain. I rang the bell several times and finally someone came. I told her why we arrived at 10:30pm. She offered no valet nor any other assistance. She asked for my credit card so she could charge a $60 resort fee! Obviously all we could do is take a hot shower if they had hot water. We found none. We hobbled in the cold and rain to the very dirty hot tub with no jets and only slime. We went to our room which was like Alice in Wonderland meets mud pie. It was worse that a Motel 6 with cheap furnishings, no bedding, no AC and a cheap plastic fan, cheap coffee machine that didn’t work. The room had ugly cheap furniture from bygone era motel clearance and the sound of pounding footsteps overhead completed the disgusting scene! We wanted to pack up and leave the moment we arrived. We had 3 towels for 3 of us. The decibel level noise overhead was well over 50db. We awesome at 7am to kids running and screaming overhead and people walking like loud elephants!!! This is NOT a luxury resort by ANY stretch of the imagination!!! We want our money back and would have been better off in Tahoe City at a chain hotel dump! What a horrific birthday experience for my husband!!!!

I was torn when reviewing the PlumpJack Inn. I think to make a fair review, you'd have to stay there in the Winter as well since this is probably a perfect location and setup for a skiing vacation. My family of 4 stayed at the PlumpJack in the summer so take my feedback in that light. Things are now fully opened up after COVID, so no masks were required for fully vaxxed people and most people were not wearing masks (so nice, finally). PlumpJack is right at the base of Squaw Valley mountain, with the Squaw Valley Village literally across the street. So there were several restaurants within walking distance. We were there for 9 nights and ate at Fireside Pizza, The Dubliner and Tremigos. Tahoe City was a 15 min drive and we also went there for lunches/dinners. The hotel was definitely more expensive than we were hoping to pay for our summer trip but way less than a VRBO for 9 nights. The room was a bit small for 4 of us and there's no AC (most places don't have AC in Tahoe). So we had to blast the ceiling fan and window fan most of the time (it was quite hot when we were there). The pool is only 3.5 ft deep and was really cold, so it's only good for little kids or for wading around for adults. There are 2 hot tubs, but only 1 had working jets (and they were a bit temperamental). They had cornhole and pingpong for games by the pool. And if you check at the front desk, you can get some bocce balls to use on their bocce court which is across their parking lot. The major negative with the place in the summer is that they have outdoor events/weddings a lot on Fri/Sat/Sun. That means lots of noise until 11pm. One night, some rowdy people were out late after dinner in the patio/pool area, but management shooed them away after we called. Our room was directly facing their dinner patio, so definitely ask for a room that DOES NOT face the pool. The noise didn't allow for any relaxing in the room. Which was mostly fine since we were out on the lake hiking/paddleboarding a lot, but if you want a tranquil summer location, this may not be it. We never tried their bar or cafe, but things did look good. WiFi was particularly bad - probably because many people, like me, were also trying to get a bit of work done. Video meetings were really sluggish. But I kinda expected this would be the case. That said, the people were really nice. Ricky at the front desk set us up one day to use their free cruiser bikes. Tommy T (the maintenance guy) was super friendly. If it weren't for the noise, I would've bumped my review up to 4 stars.

Service with smile from the Manager to the front desk to the guy who fixes the hot tub. A friendly attitude goes a long way and covers any minor deficiencies. And the location was perfect for skiing and apres ski right in the village

Super close to the lifts so ski in and ski out. Staff is very friendly, good pizza, wine list and cocktails. Dog friendly. Real coffee cups in the room and eco friendly with no little shampoo bottles.
