We stayed at the Stardust Lodge in August 2012. From the outside, it looks like an older motel that was converted into studio condos - but the inside of the rooms are very nice. When we walked in, we were surprised to see that our unit didn't have a bedroom- and it took us a minute to realize that the wall unit contained a Murphy bed. But it was comfortable and worked out fine with just the two of us staying in the room.
The resort as a whole works very hard to cater to it's guests. Free cookies upon check-in, free coffee anytime in the lobby, free popcorn, planned activities for both kids and adults, free bike rentals, a DVD library that you can borrow from (again...for free!) to watch movies in your room, free breakfast in the a.m. (donuts, coffee, juice, hardboiled eggs) and free access to Lake Tahoe. The resort is not located right on the lake - but on the main road in South Lake Tahoe. The lake is about a 10 minute walk - or 2 minute drive - away. The resort has 2 pools (kept at a very nice 86 degrees) and 2 hot tubs - with certain hours reserved for adult use only. Overall, they do a really nice job in upkeep of the property.
The unit we stayed in has a partial kitchen with a sink, stovetop, microwave, full size refrig and a dishwasher. No oven - but that was OK for us. Dishes, papertowels, dishwasher soap and salt and pepper were all stocked in the unit.
The location is nice - it is about a 3 minute walk to the casinos in Stateline, NV and right across the street from the Heavenly gondola. Lots to see and do within walking distance. We used South Lake Tahoe as a home base and took day trips to other towns and parks around the area.
Overall, our experience was very positive and I would stay there again!
