“We had friends and family gather for a wedding here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

We had quite a few (35+) family and friends gather here for a 3 pm wedding. We did not stay at this hotel, but one close by. Ruth Ann and the whole staff was very helpful, and the wedding chapel is very beautiful; Victorian-themed, with nice light for pictures. I was surprised how easily it came together; they had a minister/notary come, all the paperwork was done very quickly, and we took our time taking pictures with everyone in the beautiful courtyard outside the chapel after the ceremony. We got lots of good pictures and beautiful memories out of the experience. We didn't feel rushed out, even though we may have exceeded our allotted time.

Ok, everyone to his taste, but we didn´t like the Tahoe Chalet Inn. The rooms are dated and dark, but clean. Quite small (bed)rooms, but a large bathroom (strange combination, we put our luggage in the bathroom as there was more space there). Location is good, free parking and close to the attractions (gondola, the lake and the casinos).
The design is awful, but ok, as I said, different tastes. Breakfast is a joke, the continental breakfast is more of a "we have coffee for you" and the offer to give a discount voucher for IHOP instead is not a very good compensation.
As a summary: Ok, but overpriced for what you get. Clean, but that´s it. Wouldn´t stay there again if I had any other option.

Good location, close to casinos and shopping. Friendly helpful staff. The first room they gave us was a cave (tiny, dark, window looked out to a brick wall). We were then moved to another room which was so much better. They offer a free continental breakfast in the morning. No coffeemaker in our room and the office doesn't open till 8AM so if you are an early riser you need to go elsewhere for that 1st cup in the morning.

Stayed for 2 nights. Had to check in late after traveling. front desk was pleasant. Went to room found it very very small. Went back to desk and asked had they anything bigger left. The guy upgraded us to a suite in their adjacent building for no extra charge. It was clean. Quiet. And location was awesome close enough to walk to lake,casinos and Edgewood golf. Didn't try their breakfast but they do offer a continental breakfast.

Overall would recommend to others

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.
