“Family friendly!”
Reviewed June 24, 2004

We had a very nice stay in a king suite in JUN 2004. Plenty of room for a family of four (2 teens) with 2 queen beds and a sofa. Convenient location off I-80 and only 20 minutes to Lake Tahoe spots. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub, nice staff, clean facilities and grounds. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Recommend the Pizza Galleria one exit east on I-80. Overall, a very clean and modern hotel with a rustic outside exterior. Perfect for our family, I would stay there again.

I don't normally stay at Holiday Inns but after being stuck for 10 hours in a snowstorm on I-80, it was a haven (and the first decent lodging on the way to Truckee). New rooms, very clean and comfortable, in-room fridge and coffee etc. But for a Holiday Inn **Express**, it's pricey! Location I guess...
