Beautiful location. The 2 bedroom with the den was a great size for my family especially when you are with kids that need there own space to hangout. For limited staff the service was accommodating. Don't forget to bring your inner tube and float down the Truckee River. I will definitely be back again.

THIS IS NOT A 4 star PROPERTY. You have been warned, do not get scammed. A 4 star property should have bell available (not bell service), room service, laundry service, housekeeping without a fee, decent attitude, responsive reservation staff, etc — this property has NONE of the above. You will receive better service if you stayed at Best Western or better attitude at even a 2-star property! To top that off they scam you into not reading the fine lines and you cannot, for the first time in my life, even upgrade your reservation by paying the difference! They also have very dated appliance and their room DID NOT look like the picture advertised and I suspect the room size is much smaller than the advertised 400sqft, and nor is the bed a real King. Their kitchen in the studio is so small they kept the utensil and the KNIVES in an unlocked, GROUND LEVEL cabinet so BEWARE if you have kids. I will NEVER come back here again and nor will any of my family and friends if I can help it. What a rip off.

Location near Lake Tahoe was perfect and beautiful! Went with a group of friends here for a weekend to ski. Friendly and accommodating staff. Food pricing was kind of ridiculous though. For a cup of soup at the lodge it was $14. For a burger alone, it was $21?! Like what?

We were told at 10am, that they were only promising 4pm. At 3:30, they had no idea. At 4:00pm, they said 20 minutes. At 4:30, we called and got no answer. So, $800 per night gets you nothing...terrible.

We got the auditions package. It’s a mini timeshare through Welk. I have over 20 emails with my rep, Tasha, not able to book the room we were told we could at purchase. We bought the auditions package for $3k. Thank goodness we didn’t buy the timeshare! First time we went on vacation (required multiple emails and a manager to even get a room) we had to watch a mini presentation. I panned the trip around this nonsense and they cancelled on ME. Tried to make another reservation to rid of my points. They were making me spend more points and I could have booked directly for way less! After multiple phone calls and emails I asked the manager to email me, but I just gave up on them. Decided a year later to try again. Tried to make another reservation for any weekend within 6 months before my points expired. They only had availability for 2 weekends. I picked one. Afterwards she told me I had to wake up early on vacation to attend another presentation at 8:30am or I will owe them $500. You heard that right. I cancelled and will warn everyone about this business. Booking with points is more expensive then booking directly with cash and there is more availability too. Stay away from the timeshare!

+ pts: Nice suite, floor plan, & area. Loved the balcony’s. Nice furnishings. Great appliance. The kitchen had everything! Nice pool areas. - pts: Some staffers brought the experience down. The bds need to be upgraded. Bedroom fireplaces need to be raised. They cannot be seen from/in bed. Apples and oranges compared to their Escondido location(s).

Our family had a great time at Northstar Lodge couple years ago, pre-covid, and we agreed that the first chance we get, we would return to the Lodge. Our experience at the Welks Resort is always excellent. David Y., the Manager, is great and does everything he can to make the guests happy.

Booked a trip for my 35th birthday. Front check-in girl was rude, acted like I was inconvienicing her by being their early. They gave us a key to the gym/pool/garage which didn't work and had to go back and get reprogrammed, and she seemed more irritated like that was my fault. The room was nice and clean. We made breakfast in the kitchenette and put all the dishes In the dishwasher which immediately leaked all over the place saturating the kitchenette floor, so good thing there were lots of towels. We had a decent time skiing, crowded as usual at northstar. When we went to check out our folio change was $1,760 compared to the $1,160 reservation we had. When I questioned the front desk person ( a different yet still unhelpful person) told me I had to take it up with reservations, and she gave us their number. Called reservations and they tell me to take it up with the front desk. After 4 phone calls to people you can barley understand im still out $600, and this has pretty much ruined all the fun we had for the weekend. Hopefully my credit card company can sort it out. The property is decently nice but buyer beware-not worth the headache!

This is our second time in this resort. It never disappoints. The facility amenities are plentiful for our family. Having the movie theater just for us is a always a treat. We’ve stayed here during summer and fall. We are not a big winter family, so those “off” season is perfect for us. The surrounding areas of North Lake Tahoe is a bit more relaxed than the south side, but still plenty to do. We hike, bike, water sports, etc. The town of Truckee is a must if you are staying here.
