We live less than 2 hours away from Lake Tahoe, so we visit the area fairly often. We usually stay somewhere along the lake. This trip we had found a deal on the tram ride and swimming at Squaw Valley, and since we had two grand kids visiting we thought they might find that fun. We ended up booking a room at Squaw Valley Lodge at the last minute. We weren't sure what to expect, but really, really enjoyed the experience. I didn't give 5 stars because I reserve that for really fancy hotels, but this the the top rating I would give a smaller, casual hotel. We rented a "loft" room, which had a queen bed and bathroom downstairs, plus a queen bed and separate bathroom upstairs for the kids. The room had a decent sized living room with a nice big TV. The kitchenette was very nice, only downfall was the mini-fridge did not have a freezer, but this was a minor thing. Kids loved the pool and two hot tubs, and we loved that we could watch them from our hotel room window. Kids also enjoyed the ping pong, tram ride, and wandering around Squaw Village. We appreciated the fact that we were away from all of the holiday commotion in Lake Tahoe (4th of July weekend and a madhouse there). We did several day trips down to the lake, but also spent several days up at Squaw. We liked being halfway in-between Truckee and Tahoe. The hotel is definitely a nice / decent place to stay, and we plan to go back!
