“Family friendly lodging in a great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Accidentally found this place when we decided we wanted more room than a standard hotel. We were pleasantly surprised at the accommodations and the location.

The staff and owner were very friendly and the location is wonderful if you want to ski/board in the mountains or just play in the snow.

Looking forward to a return visit.

This was a great getaway from everyday life. Since it's after summer and before ski season opens, it was very relaxing and quiet. I think we were one of 2-3 visitors in the complex. As advertised, all rooms have a lake view, and the beach is awesome. I can only imagine the peace we had would be replaced during the high (summer) season. Having full kitchen was great, and its location is convenient to all things.

Room Tip: Check out their website before booking through an wholesaler. I found a special that I wasn't a...

A must in our WestCoast trip for a french family! We discovered Lake Tahoe in July and stayed 2 days in Mourelatos Lakeshore resort.
Very nice play to stay with a wonderful sightseeing, the Mourelatos Team is dedicated to ensure a comfortable stay with relevant advices about restaurants and places to visit. Once again thanks for inviting us to go to Lake's on The Lake restaurant.
The room with a lake view was comfortable, clean, quiet. Nothing to mention.
Very good choice, do not hesitate to make a reservation there.

Room Tip: Room with Lake View is perfect.

The Hotel in it self is not especially fancy. But its clean and have everything you need. Book a room at the end of the two buildings towards the sea. The view in the morning are spectacular! The atmosphere off season is very relaxed. The beach are great. Its one of those places you regret leaving. Will definitely go back.

When we got to Mourelatos, we were tired and weary from lots of driving - and my husband's back was having spasms. I went to the front desk to ask about Chiropractors and, although they did not know of any , they knew someone who did and they got us the information we needed. That very same day we were able to get an appointment at the Lake Tahoe Wellness Center with Dr. Lily who worked her magic on my husband's back and we were then able to enjoy the rest of our time at Mourelatos and Lake Tahoe. Needless to say, the owners are very caring and I would not hesitate to return and stay at the hotel on our next trip to Lake Tahoe.

Room Tip: The 2nd floor rooms have kitchens and good lake views.

The rooms are a little more like a studio apartment than a hotel, which is nice. The rooms are spacious, there is a back door, a semi-private deck area out the front door with a bistro table and two chairs as well as a "park bench", a CD player, flat screen TV and DVD player. The little kitchen area has a microwave, fridge and toaster. There are also a lot of gas barbecues available for guests to use. With the toaster, microwave, refrigerator and barbecue we were able to eat all our meals at the resort. With the exception of the carpet, the rooms were clean. The DVD player didn't work and in another room the CD player was broken. The staff were wonderful and accomodating and very warm and friendly. You feel that they like what they are doing. There are two outdoor hot tubs as well. Things are a bit untidy on the grounds, but nothing you can't live with. We would stay again because of the nice owners/staff and the great location with wonderful lake and beach steps away from your room. There are also restaurants within walking distance of less than a mile as well as a Safeway one mile north.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms nearest the lake. The view is great and there they are farther from the road, so quie...

Thank you for your review. We take all our guest's input very seriously and we wanted to communicate that we are making additional improvements to the property that should address some of the comments made. Specifically, we are upgrading many of the electronics in the rooms so as to provide more reliable service. We are also continuing our efforts to replace the balance of the carpets that have been impacted by the sand that surrounds the rooms. We also wanted to note that we have been repeated visited by a Mother bear and her two cubs during the month of September and October early every morning. They have regularly explored our garbage cans and then gone on to the lake for a bath. We have taken additional measures to minimize the impact they have had on the space we all share with them.

We stayed here in September which was really nice. The owners were very friendly from the time we called to make our reservation up to checkout time. It is a great location and has a very nice private beach. The Lake front rooms are the way to go, you can enjoy the lake right from your own deck. Took advanatage of the BBQ's and several other guests joined in for their dinners when they saw us enjoying the great weather and beautiful views of the lake while grilling. Other guests reviews complained about the beds but when I booked I mentioned we perfered a softer bed and our needs were cheerfully met.
The hotel could use a clean up and attention to detail. When we checked in our deck had not been cleaned, there was left over trash from the prior guest, cigatette butts littered the beach off the deck, the blinds inside needed reparing, along with ripped screen door, and one of the gas fire pits. The rugs were worn and stained and in need of replacing.
Overall the owners were very pleasant, the hotel met our needs, great location and private beach it just could use some sprucing up.

We appreciate your feedback. There are a number of rooms that will receive upgrades to window coverings and all screen doors have been repaired. We were unaware of an untidy room front. We do dress each room front before check-ins as part of our efforts to serve our guests. Your feedback is helpful and we have already applied measures to ensure consistency. Carpets in a quarter of the rooms where replaced with oak hardwood floors this last Spring and we will be replacing another 8 to 12 rooms with either new carpet or oak hardwood over the Fall and into the Spring of 2013. We have been visited multiple times by a Mother bear and her two cubs during the months of September and October in early every morning. They have regularly explored our garbage cans and left a mess for us to clean up. We have taken measures to minimize the impact of their visits to this space we all share with them. Thank you for you input.
