“Great room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

We stayed in a suite over July 4th weekend, and it was very comfortable. We really liked having double sinks in the bathroom. We didn't use the kitchen except for breakfast, but it seemed well stocked.

So looking forward to a great Marriott experience - but had to battle children everywhere. Couldn't enjoy the amenities due to the chaos of the kids in every corner of the place. It would have been nice to have a quiet / adult pool and hot tub (with extended hours). The pool area hosted children's events (even showing movies on the pool deck until pool closing). I wish adults could enjoy the pool and hot tubs after 10:00 pm. Also, get a room on the north side. Rooms on the south side are open to the crowd noise and concerts that go late.
I have never had this kind of experience at a Marriott property. I will ask more questions next time - and think about these kinds of challenges that come with summer vacations.....
Enjoyed the stay at Tahoe, but next time I come here, it will be when school is in session, for sure!

Room Tip: Get on the north side of the hotel.

Thank you for your TripAdvisor review, Brian. We apologize your recent stay did not exceed your expectations due to the children's activities. Your feedback will be shared with our recreation team and we appreciate you bringing this to our attention. The summer months do tend to see more families travelling to the resort than other times of the year. We hope you and your wife will visit Marriott's Timber Lodge again so we may truly exceed your expectations.

The 2 bedroom apartment is very spacious. Great location and very friendly staff. Interesting restaurants nearby so you don't have to worry about meals. Kitchenette with coffee so you can easily make a meal and not worry about eating out every day.

Hotel is right near the Gondola (which takes you to Heavenly, the ski camp in the mountain) and by definition, near all the shops, restaurants, ski rental and ski lessons. I've stayed in Marriott hotels before and I have to admit that I found this one with a special charm. Don't know if it is because you feel it more like a house than really a hotel, but service and public spaces within the hotel have this charm. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, many of them feature small kitchens in case you want to buy stuff to prepare dinner or breakfast (mostly because food up in the mountain can be sort of expensive) and there's a CVS a couple of blocks away.
They have freshly-baked cookies and hot chocolate in the lobby during the afternoon when guests start coming back from the mountain.
Don't miss the Fire & Ice Grill restaurant, where you choose your ingredients to prepare delicious Asian dishes.

Rooms were extremely nice. Kitchens were well stocked to include all kitchenware as well as cleaning and laundry supplies (washer & dryer in unit). Grounds & amenities were wonderful. Lots of shops and restaurants in walking distance. Casinos within a couple of blocks. Hotel is adjacent to the Gondola (enclosed ride to top of Heavenly).

This is an annual summer destination for us. We stay at the Marriott as is a great location and the rooms are very nice. Couple of things to note:

1) They enlarged the pool lounging area this year, adding more lounges and umbrellas, two fire pits, 4 BBQ's (which prior they had none) and a walk up bar. It turned out nice.
2) Valet parking only
3) This is a family resort and the pool activity shows it.

We spend most of our time out hiking and find the area perfect for that!

Marriott's Timber Lodge at South Lake Tahoe is in a great location. Convenient to everything. The property is what you'd expect from Marriott. Clean and well maintained, great amenities, very friendly staff. Rooms are clean and well appointed, if a bit small. I think this would be a better Winter getaway place than Summer, but we had a great time. Pool is a bit crowded but we spent most of our time out hiking. Wish they had a traditional restaurant.
