The location was very convenient for our week of exploring the Tahoe area. The staff had sets of golf clubs for free use, so we were able to play 2 rounds of golf for a very reasonable $20 each. The unit itself is small, and fine for a couple or maybe with one small child, but I could not see 4 adults sharing this unit. The grounds were spotless and the activities staff keeps you busy with activities, after all, this is a timeshare resort. The heated pool, hot tub and sauna were nice to have. It was quite warm while there Labor Day week, so not having air conditioning was a bit of an inconvenience during the day, while nights were quite comfortable. Even the remodeled units do not have air conditioning, but do ask for them over the not yet remodeled units that have pink carpets and bed spreads! The Labor Day fireworks went off even with the rim fire still producing smoke in the mornings.

Room Tip: Ask for a remodeled unit away from the street. Be sure to attend the tied died T-Shirt making at the resort to bring home a unique, memorable souvenir.

The room was exceptional, set among the trees with a pool and Jacuzzi. Very relaxing, quiet atmosphere and reasonable rates. We were within driving distance of the Wedding we attended, and very convenient to Reception, as well.
We will stay there again when visiting Tahoe.

We just enjoyed a long weekend here and were unexpectedly impressed by the caring staff and quality of this place.

The bed was wonderfully comfortable. Night temps were low so sleeping was great. The room was ultra clean and comfortable. Linens, hair dryer, blender, corkscrew and toaster...supplied.

Location is within blocks of casinos and nightlife. They have private beach access nearby as well. At first glance, the neighborhood surrounding cute Americana appears dodgy. But improvements are underway and the the city has designated this neighborhood as a priority for renewal. We had no problems at all and walked extensively at all times of day.

Amenities we enjoyed: free breakfast buffet (get fruit and make smoothies in your room if pastries aren't your thing like we did.) movies, popcorn cart, sports party, bikes, and full library. They also loan golf clubs and beach chairs.

Tips:
The pool and spa is outside but well heated so bring suits.

If you plan to cook call ahead and find out what appliances your room will have. Some are full cooktop/oven and others have microwave and hot plate. (I'm told they are upgrading.) ours was the latter so I packed a crockpot, a few essential spices and olive oil in my kit. Bring your own sharp knife. (I find this is true in every rental.) Otherwise, everything you need is there.

We arrived by bicycle on a cold rainy Saturday and were welcomed by a most friendly staff at the front desk. The room was not only a great value, it was spacious! 2 televisions, a full bathroom and kitchenette and living room. We loved it and the hot tub and sauna were the best! So warm even in the cold rainy downpour! Then, free popcorn to eat while we watched free movies to pass away the rainy day! Wine and karaoke in the evening in the solarium were also part of our stay. And then, the continental breakfast on Sunday morning sent us on our way into the snow covered passes on route 88 out of town.

That was quite a downpour wasn't it? So glad you found us a warm cozy place to settle in while it passed!

We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was very clean, the bathroom was spotless and the staff was very, very friendly & helpful. It is a little walk to the casinos, but not bad at all. The rooms have a kitchenette which is great if you're staying longer than one night.

I didn't rate it 5 stars because the breakfast was just meh. There were hard boiled eggs, donuts and cut up bananas and oranges. The only juice they had was apple and the coffee was so-so. When we stay here again, we will be taking advantage of the kitchenette in the room and making our own breakfast, especially since there's a Raley's just down the street.

That being said, we will definitely stay here again in the future, now that we know it's so close to everything.
