First time staying in Tahoe Vista and found the Firelite on Trip Advisor. Terrific location across the street from the lake and public beach. Walked to restaurants and post office. Room was upper floor w/balcony and lake view. Spotless, comfortable beds, and nice small kitchen area w/frig and microwave. Tasty breakfast in the lobby w/fresh fruit, eggs, cereal, make-your-own waffles.... More

We loved the quiet location, the spotless room, the "partial view" from our second story room that was better than most views, the helpful staff, and the tasty breakfast. Public lake access across the street, but it was just as nice in the pool or hot tub. On site laundry was a trip saver! Price was right!

The faded paint belies the internal beauty of this North Tahoe getaway. It's across the street from the lake in Tahoe Vista and includes a free breakfast, nice hot tub, small kids pool and free wifi. The rooms are clean and spacious with 2 doors, the entry door and patio door. Downstairs rooms have a patio by the pool where... More

We booked our stay at the Firelite Lodge based on other TripAdvisor reviews, and it exceeded our expectations. While it may appear to be a standard motor lodge from the outside, the hotel offers so much more - particularly when you consider the extremely reasonable rates when compared to other hotels in the Tahoe Vista area. We stayed in a... More

Northshore accomodations at Lake Tahoe can be hit or miss - this is definately a hit. Great location across from the beach, (and boat launch). Lovely pool and hot tub (hot!). We had lower floor room with outdoor seating area. Room heaters are actually gas fireplaces - nice ambiance. Bathroom very very nice. There was microwave, fridge, counter and cabinet... More

Unlike most north shore motels, most of Firelite's rooms run parallel to the shore, so many rooms have great lake views. Third floor rooms 25, 26, 27 all have fabulous views with balconies. (Other rooms may also, especially on the third floor.) Squeaky clean; gas fireplaces; 'fridge, microwave, sink; good TV; comfortable bed; lovely pool & hot tub; breakfast. Immediately... More

A great place to stay on North Shore, California side of Tahoe. Friendly and helpful hosts. Good location across from easy lake access. Clean rooms with fireplace/heaters. Lots of breakfast choices. Midweek winter rates are especially good.

Stayed Friday and Saturday nights over MLK day weekend on the second level (room 17). The room was SUPER clean and obviously recently refurbished (very faint smell of paint, everything looking brand new and some unfinished wood trim). We had everything we needed: reliable and easily accessible wi-fi, microwave, fridge, coffee maker. The continental breakfast was perfect: coffee, hot cocoa,... More

My wife and I stayed here 1 week ago for snow skiing. We stayed in one of the larger upstairs King Rooms with a view of the lake. It had been recently remodeled and it appears the whole place is in the remodel process. The room was very nice and conveniently had a small bar, sink, fridge and microwave. Unfortunately... More

I am always reticent to stay in a place that doesn't have the consistancy of a chain 4 or 5 star hotel. This hotel was a charm. The rooms had just been refurbished carpet new heating worked extremely well and new bathroom. Beds were quality. It is nicely situated close enough to resorts and plenty of parking.
