“Station House Inn Gingerbread House was Fantastic!”
Reviewed March 14, 2010

This 3 bedroom "cabin" is a beautiful house with lots of space for several families, We took our two sons and their families. Each bedroom has plenty of room for sleeping bags or roll aways for at least 2 kids plus the king bed. There's a pull out queen in living room.The hotel staff was very polite, helpful, and prompt to our requests. They even provided things like paper towels, kitchen towels, laundry and dish soap There really was everything we needed. The marble fireplaces were an extra touch, and granite counters in kitchen and bath. One tip is if you are not used to floor radiant heating, find a temperature that you can live with day and night, as it takes a long time to heat up or cool down.

Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Room was very clean and spacious. TV, but no dvd player (if you need one). Free internet, but not Wi-fi. Attached restaurant (LewMarNel's) was ok, but nothing amazing. Free breakfast was pretty good, but dinner seemed overpriced. Chicken Cordon Bleu was good, but trout was dry and not amazing. ALSO, our hotel staff told us we would get a 10% discount at the restaurant if we told them our room #. When we asked the restaurant staff about it, at dinner, the manager said "I don't know why she would tell you that, its not true", but then continued to give it to us, as if he was doing us a great favor. Later my husband spotted "10% discount to Best Western customers" RIGHT ON THE MENU...so make sure you ask about it BEFORE you order.

I stay at this hotel every time I visit Lake Tahoe and always found it to be excellent. The rooms are a nice size and cleaned to a high standard, the Staff are all very friendly and helpfull and the breakfasts are amazing!! It is a short stroll to where all the Restaurants are located and the Heavenly Gondola.

This Best Western was conveniently located and was good. They offered free internet too. They had a swimming pool, but the best thing was they were right next to the lake and you could take a boat to the other side of the lake.

We stayed for 5 nights for skiing in December, and had fantastic snow - Heavenly really is awesome! I was a bit disappointed when we arrived at the Station House, as I had been looking at the more expensive options in Heavenly but had decided to economise, and the Marriott did look pretty good!

However, the room was fine, was comfy and fairly big. The heating was noisy at night though, and also was a lot of noise from other rooms (more at the weekend when it filled up). The food was great - proper ski breakfasts of pancakes and waffles etc, and we also had dinner one night which was excellent steak and a great bottle of california cab sav.

Its a 3-5 minute walk to the ski hire and gondola, and also 3-5 minutes down to the lakeshore, so is a pretty handy location, also closish to the casinos if that's your thing.

Staff are great - for this budget, pack some earplugs and its excellent.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 night over Christmas to go snowboarding. We were looking for a inexpensive hotel without staying in a complete dive. Which everyone knows in Tahoe around Christmas it can get VERY expensive. The room was very nice and clean. Bed was comfy, flat screen TV, looked as if it had been updated recently. I am very big on clean showers. I've had to towels on the shower floor or wear flip flops before, because I have been so grossed out at other places. The bathrooms here looked brand new, shower/bath was very nice & clean. (No need to put a towel down or wear flip flops).
Another great thing about this hotel was that breakfast was included in our stay. But it wasn't your standard cereal, bagels and fruit continental breakfast. There is a restaurant with a full menu: eggs, french toast or pancakes, coffee and juice, all that good stuff. It was great!! The only thing for me was I like to have soda as my "coffee" in the morning and that had to be purchased at the vending machine on the way in, but they gave me a glass with ice. The only other thing is that even though the breakfast if free they ask you leave a tip for your waiter, but they are super friendly and helpful.
Overall this hotel was a great pick very close to the casinos, great breakfast, but the walls were a little thin. That would be the only negative thing I could say about our stay.
