We went for a family vacation to South Lake Tahoe and decided to stay at Best Western. We absolutely loved our stay and the extremely friendly and nice hotel staff. The room was clean and cozy, breakfast was nice and filling and the hotel location was amazing. We were less than 2 blocks from the private beach (as a hotel member you get access to the private beach) and 2 blocks from the casinos and Heavenly village. We almost didn't even have to use the car at all unless we wanted to go to another beach or stop by Safeway or Ralphie's. We liked the hotel so much that we returned again for another weekend. The staff was so friendly that they let us check out at 1pm instead of 12pm and we were also able to leave the car at hotel parking for few more hours before we left South Lake Tahoe. We absolutely loved the place and would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Always ask questions when in doubt. The staff will probably accommodate your request as they are ver...

This was a great hotel for a couple of nights. The room was compact but had all the necessities. It was clean, comfortable and the front desk people were super. I did have trouble with two of the lights ... they should mention or leave a sign that they work from a switch, and even after following all the instructions, the TV remote never did work for power or volume ... minor stuff. I'd stay here again!

We had never been to Tahoe, and this hotel was close to everything we needed: beach, boat rentals, grocery store and a wide selection of restaurants. We even had an unexpected trip to an urgent care clinic, and it was only 5-10 minutes away. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the pool was nice on a hot sunny day after hiking to Angora Lakes.

We just returned from our 7th stay at the Station House, which is located two blocks from a lovely beach and within easy walking distance of casinos and shopping. We took advantage of their boat cruise package that included two tickets for the Tahoe Queen - a really good deal. We enjoyed an excellent, complimentary, full breakfast (not a chintzy buffet) each morning in their restaurant, served by a great staff that knows how to keep your coffee cup full. Our room was neat, clean and quiet. The staff was friendly and very responsive to our requests. We'll be back next year for sure.

Read the reviews about the small rooms and were they right. There is not enough room to put one suitcase in the room without using the small desk where you would typically put your laptop or perform any business. Had to use one of the two chairs next to the window AC unit to set the suitcase. Just as well as the AC unit blows onto the bed and you're freezing. Or turn the AC off and you're too hot. So I used the suitcase, chairs, laptop bag and some tourist magazines to setup a temporary wall to block the AC breeze and divert it upward. Although that worked, it also limited the use of the two chairs so now you only have the bed to sit. Room was clean as well as the bathroom. It was unfortunate that the check-in staff did not notify us that the cable TV was not functioning when we checked in. I spent 15 minutes trying to determine what I did wrong and why it was not working until I called the front desk. It was out for days so the manager should have provided some form of discount and I asked the staff for one but as expected, no response from the manager or the staff never forwarded my message. This is the type of place that does not really have to provide good service based on their location. It's walking distance to the beach at the lake where all the water toys are rented. It's also walking distance to many restaurants and other services. Glad I only stayed one night. Did not eat at their on-site restaurant. Read that the "king bed" units are larger but cannot comment as I had the typical mini queen room. Wont bother to return to see just how big the king beds units might be.

This motel in my opinion is in need of remodeling its rooms. Although, the room appeared to be clean some of the furnishings looked dirty and the decor seemed out dated. Up on entering the room one could not miss the worn out threshold, all the chair's fabric looked and smelled dirty. The bathroom floor tile's grout is dirty in the corners and the wall paper is peeling away from the tile around the shower. Other than that my one night stay was good.
