Great relaxing weekend at SVL... Awesome views of the mountains. Made in Tahoe festival happened this weekend. Helpful staff...nice rooms. Perfect for the family! Love having the kitchenette especially with children. Can't wait to book another trip here, maybe in the winter. Love watching the Tram going to High Camp as it goes over the pool.

We booked last minute for the 4th of July weekend. I had broken my foot & was in a walking cast, so we couldn't stay with family, as usual in a house with lot's of stairs. My husband booked this. I was most pleasantly surprised. We had a one bedroom suite which was small, but had all the amenities including a small stove, dishwasher, seating for four to eat, and it overlooked the pool & two hot tubs, with a view of the mountains. It was a very short walk to the village & close vicinity to Tahoe City & Truckee. The hotel staff was most accommodating, and the room was relatively quiet. We were pleased, and will return again!

We went to the Squaw Valley Lodge on the Memorial Day weekend. The swimming pool had just been opened and was really warm. There are five hot tubs - three smaller indoor and two large outdoor. We enjoyed the swimming, the amazing views of the Sierras and the friendly staff. Our room was a one bedroom suite and was large and very quiet. We had a lovely view of a waterfall outside our window. The Squaw Valley Village had some fun events going on and there is also a nice bike riding or walking trail. We had a wonderful time and would definitely go again!!

We loved this place, great food pools and hot tubs! The view was amazing but you have to request a good view. Wish we could have stayed longer! No need for valet. Great hiking and biking! Great staff, great golf! Very quiet and in solitude we sat by the fire place at night outside it was perfect!

As others have noted, Squaw Valley Lodge has a superb slop-side location - the only true ski-in ski-out lodge at Squaw, right across from the Squaw 1 lift and with views of KT-22. The apartments aren't exactly cutting edge in terms of design (the vintage 1960s style accordion doors between the bedroom and living area in our deluxe studio made us laugh) but they're clean and have good cooking facilities - we made breakfast and a couple of dinners. The lodge is also within easy walking distance of the shops and restaurants in the village. We did a barbecue one night by the pool (heated in winter, though still a bit chilly for us). The one issue we had was with the heating - it was too warm even with the thermostat on its lowest setting. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the mountain for skiing inspiration.

This was our second stay at SVL and we were not disappointed. We had a one bedroom apartment right next to the piste so could ski back to the door and as usual the room was spotless and the service very friendly and efficient. This place is only a few minutes from the shops and restaurants but well-equipped enough to cook in your room (which we did for breakfast and one dinner). We reported one roof leak in the corridor outside our room in the morning and it was addressed during the day - very prompt. Recommended for families or couples as a really lovely venue and has parking for your car too.

The 4+ star ranking of this property is extremely misleading. If you just want a place to crash and have all your basic needs met, then it works. Otherwise, it smells like mothballs and oxygen machines ... is outdated ... staff was kind of rude...and we drove to South Lake Tahoe to get something "decent".

Room Tip: This hotel is rated as a 4+ star which is extremely misleading. The location is fabulous - the rooms...
