“Why anyone would rate this hotel as a 4...?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Room bordered on seedy, somewhat smelly and tacky. Room was basically falling apart. Door

hasp mech. scraped a large gouge in the wall every time it closed. Bath and shower controls falling apart. Carpet smelled. Window hardware broken. Very noisy, old heat pump - AC unit. Not one piece of paper to write on. I suppose if one brings dogs, it would be an OK place in that sense. The only advantage was the price, which is what attracted us, but after looking around a bit more on the search advisor, found lots BETTER! Arrived around 3:30 pm, room not ready...??...had to shift us to another room...lucky this was during off season...if during peak seasons...???!! Cannot recommend this place.

Returned last week for another great visit at 3 Peaks. I called and requested a specific room and they graciously honored my request.
I noticed that there are now 'do not disturb' and 'maid service' cards on the front doors... good idea :-) Everything was perfect, as usual. Can't wait to come back again.

We decided last minute to get away for a few days. We brought our 2 shih-tzu's with us. The resort/hotel was very clean, bed was comfortable and the price was great! Everyone that works there were very friendly especially Deon at the front desk. He was accomodating, courteous and helpful. He did not hesitate to answer any questions we had since this is the first time we stayed at their resort/hotel. It is walking distance from casinos, restaurants and stores if you like to shop. We took our dogs walking everyday. They also had a great time. I will recommend this place to anyone I know. We will definitely stay here again soon!

We decided to take our small dog on an overnight trip to Tahoe, and were happy to find this hotel for such a reasonable price. The property has multiple lawn/ picnic areas that are pet-friendly, with convenient baggie stands for clean up. We had a standard king room looking out toward the lake on the second floor. Although we were a few blocks from the lake itself, it was nice to feel we had some space around us as our view was of a grassy parkway.
The hotel staff were all quite helpful and friendly and the room was spacious and clean. However, the tv was somewhat dated and small (couldn't even read the score of the ball game!), and the linens were quite worn. But with the excellent off-season price we paid, those were small issues. Our beagle had a lovely visit there, too, and would definitely like to return.

We booked one of the larger suites for our anniversary - the Parlor room with a soaking bath-tub. The resort/hotel was close to South Lake Tahoe, which is amidst a lot of other hotels in the area, and a short walk to a private beach.
The room was pretty big by most standards - upwards of 600 sq foot, and had two reasonably new LG LCD TVs in both the hall and bed-room. There is also a well-appointed tiny kitchen, but with 4 burners, and oven and a full-sized refrigerator, I think it is pretty good. Most of the decor and furnishing seems to go the minimalist, eco-friendly way, and its not really a bad thing, since you really aren't expecting something really pricey - it kind of keeps with the rustic outdoors that surround you.
We requested for a change in pillows since the uber-soft pillows seemed to have been made out of two-dimensional cotton. However that request was shot down.
The soaking bathtub wasn't the clincher I had hoped since at nearly 6 feet tall, it is kind of difficulty to get in! But for shorter women I guess it works pretty well. Not a deal-breaker. But then again I did pay for the luxury of having one!
Had a couple of irks regarding people upstairs moving about, and the sound amplifying. Also when someone turned on the taps elsewhere the bathroom shower-head went pyscho and started moving on its own with a grating noise - scary if you are alone and you kind of think something's gone wrong. Water temperature changes frequently in the showers, and almost on a whim.
Overall, since we had a good outdoor experience I'd give the hotel a thumbs up for an above-average experience and possibly a 7/10 because it simply worked. I am not too glad with the rates they charge off-season but we really didn't have an awful time either, so I'd recommend this place if you are visiting South Tahoe. Its not a bed and breakfast so you have to tug along something or head to the local IHOP or Denny's.

Room Tip: Save yourself some money and stick to the deluxe room if you don't want all that space

We were blown away with the quality of the rooms we received for the price. It was more like a cozy cottage. Kitchen, family room and even a wood burning fireplace.
The suite had two separate bedrooms, each with their own vanity and sink. This was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on while traveling. Wish I could have stayed longer. Would definitely stay here again!

This was our second stay at 3 Peaks and we will probably stay there again. The staff was very friendly. We were surprised when we went into our room to find that we had been put in the "honeymoon" suite. We had a kitchen area, a fireplace in the bedroom, and a heart-shaped jacuzzi. We just lucked out because they were sold out of regular rooms. The bed was very comfortable. It was a short two block walk to Starbucks in the morning. The only problem was that Internet service in our room was not very good. But with Starbucks so close, that was no problem. Great room for a small price!

Room Tip: If room 117 is available, take it.
