“Great Value!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

I was pleasantly surprised by the Tahoe Chalet Inn. Best of all, the service was great. Eric was kind enough to accommodate me for my very late check in, and the woman the next day at the front desk was very friendly and greeted all the guests, trying to ensure they were comfortable. Service far surpassed any comparably priced motels.

The continental breakfast was good, with more than enough cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit and other things to fill you up.

As far as the room, nice touch with the poster bed, which again distinguishes this place from comparably priced options. The room was comfortable and cozy and most importantly, clean. I wasn't too crazy about the shower just because it was very small and tight, and the design of the bathroom actually would allow for a much larger shower (there is a lot of empty space in the bathroom). But overall the room was great.

Location is also very convenient.

All in all, I had a great comfortable stay at the Tahoe Chalet Inn and would definitely stay again.

Location is perfect - 5 minute walk to heavenly village and the shops, restaurants and bars and about 10 minutes to the lake. We only used our car once while here which is also a bonus. The staff and excellent - very friendly and welcoming and recognise you after a day or 2 even when it is busy. Breakfast is plentiful and breakfast time is very flexible which makes a nice change. Room is spotlessly clean. Decor is a little dated but great value for friendly, clean hotel in great location

I was up in South Lake Tahoe for business, and had to stay an extra day. Tahoe Chalet Inn was recommended to me, and since it was easy walking distance to my business appointment, I decided to stay there.

The room was clean and well appointed, but the staff was what made the experience Very Good. They greeted me by name, explained the layout, and made some great recommendations on where to eat.

I love the Lake Tahoe area... one of the most beautiful spots on the planet. I worked with the staff for a special romantic stay. I can unequivocally state that the staff wen WAY ABOVE AND BEYOND anything I requested! I had a few very specific requests... which were simply taken care of. The only problem with my stay was the fact that it was only for 1 night... I won't make that mistake again - and the Tahoe Chalet Inn is the place to stay!

If it's in your budget, upgrade to one of the suites. They are off the main drag so they are nice and quiet - lots of room to spread out, beautiful jacuzzi tub, fireplace...

Room Tip: Trust me, upgrade to one of the suites!

We had only planned to stay one night on our road trip but this became two nights due to the fantastic location, but also clean, comfortable hotel room decorated in a wonderful theme with four poster bed. Ample parking, continental breakfast and free wifi were added perks. Will definitely come back one day.
