“Value for your buck”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

We stay at this hotel for 3 nights the first week of January 2012.
The rooms are comfortable and very clean. The staff is friendly and they show they care the hotel has an outdoor swimming pool and a Hot Tub and Sauna. In the morning, the hotel offers a complementary breakfast buffet with enough options to grab a bite and hit the road. Would recommend it and stay there again. Free WI-FI!

This hotel is within walking distance of shops, restaurants, ski lifts, etc. Room was large, clean, big bathroom, wi-fi and everything I needed. Breakfast was included, free newspaper, a safe was provided at the front desk, and coffee and fruit was available all day.

Room Tip: We had the end room on the 2nd floor way in the back. It was very quiet.

We stayed in Lake Tahoe for a couple of nights and cannot fault the Holiday Inn Express. One of the most important things for us is a room that is spotlessly clean and spacious and this is exactly what our room was. Our only comment would be is that the sound proofing is not brilliant and we could hear the occupants above us very clearly!!!!! A great choice if you want to stay in Lake Tahoe for a short time.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the first floor if you can.

Very nice hotel in a wooded setting, the rooms were large and very clean, the lady at the front desk was so helpful and their "free" breakfast was one of the best I have seen..they even have freshly made pancakes and sausage..the location was great, we walked to heavenly village and to harrah's casino.

I knew things were funny when the Garmin said "Arrive at destination" and I recognized the property. I had stayed here before, 1969 when it was an independent, 1988 again by mistake (before online booking) when it was a Ramada Express, and now again a mistake, booking at a HIE in Berkeley.

No, The room size and layout had not changed with the new paint and carpet from my 1969 visit. It seems they kept the beds from the last owner as they were soft and the pillows were the lumpy ones you can get at K-mart for $2. The front desk was not plesant to deal with and the breakfast bar was minimal.

All I can say is this property does not live up to the usual standards that one finds in the typical (relatively new) HIE. In 1969 we were young and a room was a room. Now, we have higher standards and this HIE did not meet our minimum requirements.
Next time I should check it out first on Tripadvisor.

Room Tip: Try a Casino hotel down the street.
