We stayed for a week in a "hotel" unit, which includes a small sink and meal prep area with a microwave, toaster, and coffeemaker, and a set of dishes, glasses, and utensils for two. The small refrigerator was adequate for our needs. We were able to make sandwiches, chili dogs, cereal, and toast, which was fine for the hot summer... More

Overall impression was failure about to occur. Deteriorating facility, stained carpets, peeling paint, and the smallest television we have seen in many years. Staff was "casual" at best - not rude, but very unprofessional. We were invited to purchase a time share, and had to contain ourselves not to laugh outloud. Dogs are allowed here, and we were treated to... More

I visited this property in the summer of 2015, and thoroughly enjoyed the resort. The timeshare presentation, however, left a sour taste in my mouth. The agent John, was the rudest presenter. But apparently, he's the #1 seller, so his "attitude" is overlooked. If you stay at this resort, and participate in the timeshare presentation, and if you're given John... More

This is a resort with pools, spas, resterants, massages, facials, manicures, etc. 15 minutes from Tahoe, where their is boating, skiing, shops, resterants, rafting, zip line, skiing, snow boarding etc. Minden town 3 minutes with Theater and resterants and shops! But you won't want to leave the Resort... Just relax and Enjoy!

I really wanted to go to Walley's as a family staycation. I am a local and thought it would be a nice place to take my husband, son (13), 2 month old and my sons friend also 13. I thought it would be nice to let my son go swim with his friend and my husband and I could relax... More

First time to come to David Walley's, but won't be the last. We celebrated two very special occasions and both of us decided to have the same Prix Fixe menu option. The Manhattan clam chowder was excellent and a meal in itself. To quote my husband, the prime rib was the best he ever had. Fork tender, 9 oz+, inch... More

We stayed here to enjoy the mineral water in several spas at different temperatures as well as the mineral water pool at 80 degrees. They were wonderful! I also had a fabulous 80 minute sports massage which was great. This location is on the east of Lake Tahoe which is a very different terrain than staying on the lake side.

Recently stayed at the David Walley resort for a week as a timeshare exchange. The location is good, near Lake Tahoe & Carson City (about 15 min to each). Reno is approximately 45 min away.
