With so many hotels in the Lake Tahoe area it would be easy to overcharge and underdeliver. The Firelite Lodge doesn't! I always prefer non-chain hotels and the Firelite Lodge has everything such a hotel should. The property is very clean, both inside and out. Our little patio area was spotless with no dust, leaves, spider webs etc. The rooms... More

Had a great, convenient stay as two adult brothers with two girlfriends and Dad, staying in one 2 and one 3 bedroom. Will definitely come back next year. Firelite Lodge is a comfortable and fully functional bed and breakfast. There are (gas-powered) fireplaces to make the rooms warm and cozy, it's by the lake for great sunsets, the drive to... More

Picked this place because we wanted close lake access and the relative calmness of north shore. We loved it! Big bright white room, king sized bed with lovely comforters, fireplace, continental breakfast (would have loved the addition of some yogurt/bananas), and a view of the lake that was the last thing we saw at night & the first thing we...

WE enjoyed our stay and the owners were wonderful. Everythink look renovated and very clean. Only things that were slight concerns were no AC and limited parking... Simply cross the street and your at one of the many beaches

We booked this hotel the last minutes for last weekend with a reasonable price. The check in is easy . The room is very clean and have a lot of space. We didn't use the swimming pool, but it looks nice. The hotel is across street from the lake. Over all it is a nice hotel to stay for a... More

This lodge is great. Just across the street from the lake. The lodge was completely remodeled. Very clean. Very comfortable for my family of 5. 2 beds and a small sofa sleeper was perfect. Also a fridge, microwave. Clean carpet, beds, sofa, and all. Did not seem noisy from the street noise. Only complaint would be the window above door... More

Our family was at Lake Tahoe for a wedding and four couples stayed at The Firelite Lodge. At first look, The Firelite Lodge has a bit of a dated look about it. As you get closer and enter the lobby, you find that while it still has the charm of an older motel, it has all been updated very nicely.... More

We came to North Tahoe region for Spring skiing. We picked this hotel based on location (and view) and price. It's a little further from Squaw and Alpine Meadows than we might have preferred but if your not staying at the ski resort a few more minutes added to the drive aren't too significant. We weren't too interested in the... More

Wonderfully clean, friendly and great place to stay in North Tahoe. The views are amazing! Good restaurants and grocery are close by. The breakfast is complementary and consists of boiled eggs, bagels, cereal, fresh fruit, juice, waffle maker and more.

It is a nice place to stay, while try to ski! They have a really nice breakfast, the employees are kind. I had one bad experience, but it didn't cause me any trouble. And I still recomend this place. We were there in the final of winter period. So, from saturday to sunday we lost an hour, because we should... More
