“Great location and lodge!”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

This is a lovely lodge and the staff was very friendly. Great location next to the Heavenly Gondola, shops, Mini Golf, Starbucks, and restaurants. Also, you can walk across the stateline into Nevada where there are casinos and the Hard Rock Cafe (in Harvey's Casino). In and out service for your car (valet)--you can text them or call down--quick service.

Room Tip: The suites have a refrigerator, sink, and microwave. Nice pool area and fun center for children.

Stayed here one night and wished I'd stayed more! The villas are amazing- include a full kitchen, living room, jetted deep tub and separate bathroom, as well as a washer and dryer! And all important air conditioning which was especially appreciated during the HOT week we were there. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful- especially Joseph who checked us in. It is conveniently located and there are lots of great meal options right near the hotel. Will definitely come here again- next time for a few days instead of just one! Having stayed at numerous hotels higher on the Trip Advisor list, I would put this one at the top!

We have stayed here at least 4 times. We've stayed at other South Lake Tahoe properties and this one is by far the best! You can't beat the location. The moment you walk into the lobby you feel like you're in a nice mountain resort. I agree Sunday check - in is chaos but I enjoyed the warm chocolate chip cookies and even small glasses of wine were being handed out to calm everyone's nerves. We hadn't see that touch before. The staff is so friendly at the front desk and at the concierge. We had to request some dishwasher soap and it was brought to our room immediately followed by a phone call from the front desk to make sure it arrived.

The rooms are kept in great condition. We love the size of the 2 bedroom/2 bath for a family of 4. The pool area is kept up with lots of fresh towels. There are so many activities available for all ages if you wish to do them.

We did learn on this trip if you ask the concierge for the parking pass to the Lakeside beach you'll get free admission to the beach which normally charges $5 per person. Great beach too! As a Marriott guest you also get discounts at the surrounding shops and restaurants which is a great perk.

After attending a nearby timeshare talk, it only confirmed that being a Marriott owner is the place to be!

We just got back from a four day stay at Marriott's Timber Lodge resort at Lake Tahoe. This beautiful resort is right down town South Lake Tahoe accessible to the casinos and right next to the Gondola. The staff was very accomodating and friendly although the slow check in on Sunday was a little unnerving. It seems they had over half of the resort was checking out the day we arrived and our rooms were not ready until nearly 6:00 pm. Hopefully this is just one of those days as we have stayed in several Marriott resorts and never experienced this kind of delay. Being from scorching South Texas we were ready for some mountain cool weather but we were not expecting highs of 57 F the first 2 days of our stay but the 3rd day was absolutely beautiful as we had hoped. I do recommend this resort for all travelers; families with kids will really enjoy all the activities at the resort.

We stayed Monday through Friday here and loved every minute of it. Beautiful, clean room was newly remodeled, kitchen and bathroom had nice upgrades. Bathroom had lots of fluffy towels, shampoos, etc. and a nice hair dryer. Extremely comfortable, king-sized bed. Never heard a peep from neighboring rooms or the hallway. The heated pool and hot tub were the kids' favorites as well as the nicely appointed fitness room. Within walking distance of shops, restaurants, etc. Great stay!

Room Tip: We had a great room on the ground floor, located near the pool.

We stayed in a single room over looking the pool. Room was very clean and comfortable.Large bathroom with walk in shower.Hotel has an excellent location to within walking distance of shops,restaurants,and casinos.Staff was very friendly and helpful. Noticed activities geared towards children. Nice heated outdoor pool with plenty of chairs .Valet staff were very busy, but always gave us good service.Concierge was very helpful suggesting a beautiful drive around the lake with an easy hike to Eagle falls. Also at the top of her list was a sunset sail that offered some of the very best opportunities for spectacular pictures. I would come here again. My only negative comment was that our room was not ready at check in but they gave us a bottle of wine for our inconvience. I also was disappointed that there was not any restaurant on property.

Room Tip: Long hallways. If you need assistance with walking I suggest you choose a room near the elevator.

Drove in directly from Yosemite NP. Checked in after 4pm with no problems. Staff was very friendly and personable. Valet used the old "no change" trick after I gave him a twenty. No problem, stiffed the same guy when checking out. Wife a four kids stayed in 2 bedroom suite overlooking pool. Room was basically a well appointed apartment. Clean and cozy. Beds were comfortable, kitchen area and in room laundry would have been perfect for longer stay. Location is perfect. Movie theater, miniature golf, restaurants, organic grocery store, coffee shops all within walking distance. Only complaint is the outrageous 10a.m. checkout. Basically don't come until 4pm, then get the heck out by 10!! Nevertheless, if you roll with a big crew like I do, this location is perfect.

Room Tip: Base Camp Pizza was Awesome!!
