Somehow found a rate of $150/night last April 2016. I'm remembering it now because I'm to find a place for next week (Ski Week) and the rate is double that! We stayed in Deluxe Suite #7. The queen beds were comfy, the fireplace was warm, and the chromatherapy tub was ... weird. We definitely appreciated the wireless Internet and the...

Thank you so much for your review! It's great that you enjoyed your stay with us so much last year. Our rates do tend to go up during holiday weeks here in Tahoe. Keep on eye out though, we will definitely have Spring Specials again this year!

I booked a room here for a one night stay on Wednesday, November 9th. The room was comfortable and attractive but I had one problem. At approximately 2:16 a.m., the security system malfunctioned and began beeping. I called the front desk and they had someone come and fix it which took around 10 minutes but it definitely ruined my overall...

We really loved our room. The king size bed was very comfortable. It was nice to have a fireplace for the cooler nights. The bathroom was very large with plush towels, large soaker tub, walk-in shower and 2 sinks. There was also a mini fridge and a keurig machine for coffee/tea. We loved that the hotel is a separate building...

We had the double room with the balcony. Huge room. Very nice toiletries and amenities in the room. Fabulous tub! Downside - no door for the toilet/bathroom though there is a heavy curtain to separate and a fan to turn on to camouflage noise. Couldn't really have two using the space if one was taking care of business, unless you're...

Thank you so much for taking your time to review the Border House Hotel at Crystal Bay Casino. "Rustic Posh" does seem like to the perfect way to describe our small, boutique hotel.

Came up for a concert and was not disapointed.... Bill Wood and staff are great folks. Don't expect any spa or pool amenities, just private top end rooms. Great spa down the street at the Hyatt. Will definetly visit again!

Good thing first: I made a mistake in booking the hotel and the hotel management was really really kind in helping. I was truly grateful for the help of the staff named Stefanie. Majority of my good reviews are for her. When we just checked in, everything was nice too. Great room, nice and big tub, the furniture was classy...

There was nothing in the confirmation e-mail saying that you had to check in at the casino next door. We wandered around for ages before someone at the bar directed us. The room has quirky design, a gas fire (untried as it was summer) a good bathroom with two wash hand basins but not all rooms have spa baths. Lighting...

We stayed one night in the Border House at Crystal Bay and we really enjoyed ourselves. The room was very nice and kind of quirky decorated, but that just made it more fun and interesting. The bathroom was beyond elegant and had some very nice touches. The hotel is not attached to the casino, so that was a bit weird,...

I was spending a weekend in Tahoe with my son and we booked the Border House. It is a bit difficult to find, if not for the reviews, we would have missed it. You check in at the Casino at Crystal Bay, but the actual Inn is next door. Also, you need to go to the VIP desk to check...
