We picked the Ferrari Crown, sight unseen, for it's location: Kings Beach is the closest spot to I-80 that's on Lake Tahoe. I also noted that the owners read & respond to reviews which I took to be a good sign. We arrived after midnight and checked into the room we had reserved online. It was quite small but clean and functional and faced the highway. The next morning we went down to breakfast and saw the views from the side facing the lake and decided to ask to move. The woman at the desk was very friendly and accommodating and for a modest upgrade fee we were able to move to the lakefront. It was worth it! We traded the sound of the highway (though not too bad) for the soothing sound of waves lapping the shore. Our room was twice as big and had a lovely deck as well, where we sat and enjoyed the spectacular vista of the beautiful blue lake surrounded by mountains. The hotel consists of several buildings and if you're spending any time in the area at all, it's definitely worth the extra $ for the lake side. There are 4 wifi connections that provide coverage throughout the property and there's a good, basic continental breakfast.
