Stardust Lodge
Ranked #5 of 65 Hotels in South Lake Tahoe
Reviewed August 5, 2014

We are stayed for two nights for our anniversary. I read all the reviews but I was leary because they were too positive. Well, I was delighted to be wrong! There really is a terrific manager named Kenny, and there really is an extremely helpful staff....the one bedroom room was so nice (awesome shower), great little kitchen, nice bed, two modern tv's, and a cute table by the window to type my review by. I even emailed Kenny a question before we arrived and he got right back to me...imagine that!
The grounds are beautiful, lots of activities, lots of nice bikes available to use free, beach access, donut breakfast and pretty quiet. We were in the back by the second pool and it was pretty quiet at night. There were gatherings going on around our room (BBQ's and umbrella tables scattered through out the property) but everyone was repectful and done by " quiet time".
Great walking distance to gondola (way over priced), casinos, dining, beach, movie theaters, Starbucks, , ect...
Nice place, give it a try!

What an unexpected pleasant surprise. I planned an a last minute trip to Lake Tahoe with my grandson and stayed at the Stardust Lodge. We had the best time from the moment we checked in to the time we left. I can't say enough about how great the staff was. They checked on how we were doing throughout our stay. It was like staying with really nice family. They even introduced us to their new cat. They offered suggestions for activities and great places to eat that would appeal to both a six year old and me. I know he had a great time too. He already wants to go back. We will be back.

We spent the last four weeks in our time share at the Stardust. This is our 7th year in a row to vacation there and we absolutely love the resort.
In addition to the incredible location across from the Heavenly lift and the ability to walk to all the entertainment venues what makes this place TOP is the staff.
Starting with the manger Kenny, the desk crew: Kate, Emily, Montse, Maria, and Jose, the reservation manager Delores, the maintenance crew: Ernulfo Sr. And Ernulfo Jr. and the cleaning crew. These people are excellent at welcoming you and making you feel at home.
We have the option to trade our weeks and go to another location; but over the last seven years we have never done so.
We love the Stardust and can't wait to come back next year.

We were extremely surprised by this hotel. Obviously remodeled and tastefully done, the room had a comfortable feel. We had just got married the night before and decided to stay one more night. We found this hotel and immediately felt welcome. The Activity Center (Victor!) set us up with beach chairs, an umbrella, free beach pass, a complimentary bottle of wine and bikes. We wished we had found it sooner. We will definitely be back!

Our first family vacation was so much fun at this motel. The staff was amazing. Yes the rooms are warm, but the fans and ceiling fans helped a lot. And it is tahoe so we didn't spend that much time in the room. The pools were fun and our family had a great time. We will be back!

I have to say the decor and cleaniness of the rooms are great but unfortunately thats where it stops. The lodge advertises itself as having temperature control which you would assume meant A/C but no it meant fans. You cannot control the temperature by using fans? The room was seriously uncomfortable at night and we didn't sleep a wink due to the heat. Secondly there was meant to be free wifi. When we tried to sign up it wouldn't work. We went to reception and they told us that WE needed to ring an external provider in order to fix it. We did so and were promised that it would be fixed the following morning at 8am, this did not happen. The only area we had wifi was in the courtyard but for the duration of the holiday we had no wifi in our room which made it difficult when we wanted to go somewhere we would have to go up to courtyard in order to get some coverage. Lastly we tried to speak to a manger from the second day and left a message with staff to get in contact with us when he came in. This never happened after several attempts during our stay approaching the front desk to speak with someone. We are never coming back again.

Thanks to TA for changing its three dot designation from "good" to "average". Otherwise I would have had to give this "two". It's really about 2 1/2, but it's not "poor". I still think two should be "fair" and one "poor." What's the difference between poor and terrible, anyway? The lack of a/c is a major problem. Our upstairs, west facing room must have been about the same temp as the air outside when we checked in late in the afternoon, over 85 for sure. The fans did no good. I had stayed there before in one of the few rooms with a/c. For two hundred bucks (including tax) for a one bedroom "luxury suite" (more on that later) it's reasonable to expect a/c. They were prepared to offer us a refund but also gave us the option of taking a comparable room downstairs that had been earmarked for someone else. (My sympathies to whoever that was). Since we didn't feel like packing the car back up and driving two hours back home, we accepted. The wall a/c cooled off this room, which wasn't as hot to begin with, fairly quickly. The unit was quite clean. They do the best with what they have. But don't be fooled by the pix on line, which make the rooms look much larger than they are. The "living room" was about 180 sf, not including the serviceable two burner stove, microwave, decent sized refrig and sink. The one bedroom was smaller than a large closet. Nice bathroom, large shower but no tub. Some of the other guests were a bit loud but not too bad; not like others have commented on. If you can insist on and receive a back facing unit with a/c, I guess it's not too bad a deal but don't be misled by the stellar reviews.
