We've been staying here for three years straight for our family's annual winter vacation. Wife, two young kids, and myself for two nights. Summary of pros and cons:
-Well managed, friendly staff. All requests promptly handled with great customer service.
-Good value - may seem pricey but South Lake Tahoe is not cheap in general. This is a nice mid-range hotel that meets all our needs.
-Places to eat - walking distance to MacDuffs, pizza from the bowling alley. Haven't tried the pizza but heard it was excellent. MacDuffs a little pricey, but good food and service.
-Pets allowed - we don't have pets but are concerned about dirty rooms from pets. Haven't had any issues with dirty carpets from pets in our rooms. I believe they are kept in a separate wing from the rest of the guests.
-Park across the street - there's a park and closed campground across the street by the library. This was a nice convenient spot to have the kids play in snow without having to drive somewhere.
-Dated decor, furniture, carpets.
-Lakeside view from across the street. This is more a place to stay than to enjoy a lakeside view.
We'll be back again for sure. Thanks to the staff at IBTL for a wonderful stay as usual!
