“Great value for skiing trips!”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

This hotel has reached all my expectations and has shown to be one of the best hotels in my life. Rooms are really clean and comfortable. Ski service such as ski deposit and shuttle to the base of the mountain is really useful. I would defiantly recommend!

We had the pleasure of staying at the Resort at Squaw Creek in December with 4 young teenagers. We opted for a suite which had ample accomodation for all 6 of us, the view from our room was spectacular and the suite was very comfortable and cosy. We loved the fireplace and the small kitchenette, with everything onsite to facilitate your sulking holiday we were able to purchase or hire anything we didn't have with us which made our trip to Squaw valley all that more enjoyable. Would thoroughly recommend staying here we loved it ..

This is a big hotel with lots of amenities and handful of shops. The rooms were a good size, fitness center was pretty spacious. They have a few different restaurants and restaurant/bars onsite with good food. The hotel is located right in a valley with golf right there and the small ski resort (previous site for a winter games is open, but somewhat sleepy on the summer) is a short hike It would be a long/too long walk in/with ski gear.

You can also rent bikes from the resort and bike down to Lake Tahoe, which is a very nice ride. Rafting/kayaking are also nearby options. There are a lot of restaurant options down in the town by the lake too. If the prices were good I'd definitely go back with my family for a future trip.

This is the 5th year we've gone to RSC for Christmas. It remains a great location for skiing. Skiing is easy to get to and challenging.

The resort itself is in serious need of updating. They changed the carpet and got new bed linens, but that isn't enough. The furniture is beat up and old. The rooms (even those with mountain views) are dark and dreary. Please send in the interior designers!

We've never stayed at the RSC for the food, but we do eat breakfast there everyday. What has been in past years a decent breakfast buffet has taken a downward turn. Less variety, baked goods baked weeks ago and defrosted. The person at the omelette station didn't speak English (and I tend to be pretty relaxed about that; I'm ESOL teacher), but when I pointed to the ingredients I wanted, he still had no idea what I was talking about. The Christmas buffet was inedible. I ate a roll and a piece of chocolate. I spoke to someone at the front desk about it and he assured me someone would contact me about it, but no one did.

RSC has to be updated to stay competitive. If not, the Ritz Carlton at North Star is looking better and better.

Room Tip: Try to get a room looking at the valley. The views are incredible.

Green Features: They use to recycle plastic bottles in the rooms. All those containers are gone sadly.

The location (if you are skier) can't be beat, but the rooms themselves are in need are major upgrades. Feels like a Motel 6 is a Four Seasons Location. The lobby itself is beautiful, however, you have to walk through an uncovered, unheated path to get to the hotel rooms.

I think going forward, I will either try PlumpJack or stay in Truckee.

My family and I have been in the guest service industry for many years, and know how important it is to make sure that people come back time after time. The spa staff could not have been more accommodating to my wife and daughter! Sandy's Pub waiters are cheery, polite and well informed about the area. A taller gentleman named Matt (I think) was one of the most professional waiters we have ever encountered at a casual restaurant. We were impressed with the food as well. After being told that the chef's name was Andrew, we want everyone to know how delightful we found the menu! We ate at every single restaurant, and wanted to note that Cascades breakfast was the only place was the only place where we were approached by a manager (Anna) who wanted to make sure that every single table was having a pleasant experience. This young lady truly cares about her customers. There were several things not available on the buffet, but Anna went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of and made menu adjustments (while working closely with the kitchen crew) she even made my six-year old chocolate chip/blueberry pancakes HERSELF! What amazing and personalized service! Needless to say we were delighted with our experience overall! Upon checkout Every single attendant asked us how our stay was. We are expecting to return to this resort very soon!

This was our second stay at this property. We spent 5 nights just after Christmas, through New Years Eve. The lobby is beautiful and welcoming (lovely decorations for the holidays and a nice wood fire burning in the fireplace), the rooms are beautiful and comfortable, the staff is very friendly, and it's an easy place to stay with kids. My only complaint is the excessive charges for the "extras". You are already paying the resort fee ostensibly for the amenities, yet
ice skate rentals are an additional $12. In addition to the service charge for room service, they charge an ADDITIONAL "tray service" fee on top of the room service charge, onto of the included tip - and have a place for you to "tip" the room service guy. What?? Will they start charging "tray service" fees in the restaurants when your server brings your meal to you on a tray next? What is a "tray" service charge, and what does the room service charge cover??

Green Features: It would be nice if they wouldn't include a straw with every single drink - without being requested. Not an environmentally friendly practice.
