“Lakeland Village any time”
Reviewed October 15, 2007

General:
Excellent location. Less than a mile to grocery store, restaurants, bars, casinos, Heavenly resort/gondola/shopping, and right on the lake.

Staff:
Check-in was fast, except the front desk lady talked only to my boyfriend even though I was the one paying for the room and signing for it....weird. Same thing happened again when requesting a shuttle. Shuttle drivers were the best! Told you everything you wanted to know and more. They can recommend where to go and where not to and were usually right. They would even bring you from place to place, not just from to and from hotel. Very impressed!!

Room:
Large and comfy. It was nice to have a separate living area and kitchen and dishes and microwave/stove/toaster/dishwasher. Also, extra blankets were everywhere, which was nice considering it snowed while we were there.

Only con:
Our room was 122 and was right off the lobby. We could hear the elevators and people any time, and vaccuums in the morning. If they could fix the thin walls (probably not), the I would say this place is golden!

Grounds:
Perfect. Right on the lake. 2 pools and hot tubs. Beach. Dock.

I'd stay there again anytime.

We just came back from an incredible 1-week stay at Lake Tahoe, going up for the marathon and all of the hiking opportunities. What a beautiful place...the lake is stunning from all viewpoints and the mountains are always impressive. Which is really good if you are staying at a hotel that is just mediocre.

While not nearly as bad as a few recent reviews of some other places at Tahoe (some of which are quite funny), Lakeland Village does need some help. The entire time we were there, the front entrance was closed off for repairs or upgrading, but I never really saw anyone working on it. You had to go in through the garage.

The elevators were downright scary. I convinced my daughter that there were little mice turning the wheels that made the elevator go up and down, and that calmed her down.

The outside of the building, the grounds, and the common areas all need a major facelift. I get really bothered by simple things like shades missing on lights and ratty carpeting in the hallway.

The room was in better shape, however, and the cleaning staff thorough and friendly. The front desk was also very helpful.

I would bring my family back to Lakeland if I knew they were working on these issues. It IS on the lakefront, and when we craned our heads we had a really nice view of the mountains over the Hojo's next door.

We stayed for four nights in September 2007 in room 131 which is part of the hotel vs. the separate townhomes on the property. We got a deal through expedia, so we paid just over $100/night for our room which had a king bed, table and two chairs and a kitchenette. For the money we paid, we didn't complain but it looks like others spent much more than we did.

On the positive side, the kitchenette was pretty nice. We really didn't use it much but if you wanted to cook a meal, you had everything you would need. The kitchenette was clean and there was a new dishwasher, however this was the only thing that was "new" about room 131. The property has a nice private beach that we enjoyed every night for sunset. The people working at the resort were very friendly. Room service was prompt every day.

Our room had white shag carpeting that was probably put in in the 70's or early 80's. Yuck. The table and chairs were old and in dire need of a good dusting. One certainly did not want to sit in the chairs for fear of being attacked by dust mites. We had a sliding door which led to a small balcony and the screen promptly fell off the track the first time we opened the door. We did complain about this on our first night but the problem wasn't fixed during our stay. The absolute worst part of our room was the shower. We are college-educated and had to have the maintenance guy come to our room the first morning to instruct us on how to manage the water temperature. Even then, it was difficult to manage: too hot or too cold. Maintenance informed us that the property was updating the showers, so perhaps there is hope for the future. The walls are very thin. We were lucky to have a room near the end of the hall and the place wasn't full but if someone talked in the hall, you heard everything.

This place has the potential to be quite nice if they updated it to modern times. As it is now, I wouldn't spend a dime more than what we paid.

We stayed for two nights on the weekend of Sept 7th 2007. For $212 incl. tax per night, what we got was terribly disappointing. The shower was broken, the crib for our baby looked like it was from the 19th century and we arrived back on Sat evening to find our room had not been made up. When we complained, there was no apology, just a "well, what do you need now?"

The size of the room was good and there are decent facilities given that eating out in South Lake Tahoe is not so great (free shuttle locally to restaurants, microwave etc.) but would not recommend this hotel at all.

We love Lake Tahoe and chose this property because we wanted to be away from the Casinos and near to the lake. I'm not quite sure how, but we believed that every room had a lake view and so when we were told that we would be staying in the main building we asked if we could possibly have a lake view. "You should have rented a house then" was the abrupt response.

However, the location is great, with shopping and eating close by although the property itself is looking very tired, with paint peeling from many of the buildings.

Our room, (predominantly beige in colour) had its own kitchen which was very dated with old furniture, pictures and equipment. The refrigerator had seen better days and although it worked, there was a large part of the inner door missing. The sliding fly screen on the doors leading to the balcony was also damaged.

Housekeeping quality was below average. On one occasion, when we happened to be sitting on the balcony, we timed their visit at 5 minutes. This included putting two cups and glasses into the dishwasher for a 90 minute wash and dry cycle, when a quick wash and dry in the sink might have taken two minutes tops! As the cleaning staff seemed to believe that their responsibility did not extend to sweeping the balcony, one day I "borrowed" the broom from their cart to do it myself.

On a positive note, those staff we came into contact with were friendly and always helpful and the free shuttle to Stateline was of enormous benefit.

If we visit again, we shall be looking for somewhere that offers better value for money.

I stayed here with my girlfriends in the one-room suite with loft. It had a kitchenette with table, 2 bedrooms, 1 1/2 bathrooms, living room, and small balcony overlooking the busy road. Through Expedia we found a great rate for the space. The beach is so-so, my local friend took us to beautiful beaches around the lake. The pool and hot tub are located right next to the busy road, so it was kind of hard to chill out without listening to the constant whir of traffic. The shuttle service was excellent, and the driver was great. My only complaint was the beds are really hard. I read it in another review and thought maybe the person didn't like firm mattresses, but they were really really hard. I actually slept on the floor my first night because the bed was so awful. There is also a sign hidden down in the garage near the steps that says something along the lines of "The State of California says there are chemicals here that cause birth defects in children and alter reproductive activity." We found that quite odd. Other than that, the place was fine for us. Nothing fancy, just a lot of space to hang out and go see the sights.

Went to Lakeland Village for a wedding. Had never been to Tahoe and was expecting extraordinary. Especially for the price. The room was a good size. Outside of that, I have nothing else positive to say. Each guest in our party complained of a urine like smell in the rooms. The building is older and not all of the rooms are updated. It is difficult to sleep-in here. The noise from the highway permeates the walls, and if you have a vacationer above you the floors creak with each and every step. The staff was difficult to deal with, and we never once saw housekeeping. If you can get past that and don't mind the price it will al work out. There is not much reason to stay in your room in a city like Tahoe.
