“Thanksgiving Treat!”
Reviewed December 5, 2013 via mobile

After Staying here, all the other reviews are right on the Money. Yes, Pam is a little Rude, but not in a mean way. She has to Run the place & make sure No guests get out of Hand. My parents( Old) went up with my 2 yr Old daughter & had a hard time finding the place(Yes you do have to do a round about, but parking is right in front) and Pam was great, basically talk them right up to the front door! I thanked her the next day, and she rolled her eyes like it was a big ordeal, telling me the the whole story. But it was Cool!! ( laughing) What hotel/ timeshare do you go to & the front desk person will roll their eyes?? NO WHERE! But in all honesty, shes great! Really.. Shes helpful, patient, and Place feels Like, the place you wanna go to again & again. Its just far enough from town that you get the Best of both worlds, Casino & Relaxation. And Best part is the GoBlue bus. It picks you up right in front of the condo for $2 bucks one way. And you can get right back home. You can catch it right in front of Harvey's or Harrah's. There was a little snow, so if you have small children its just enough so they can play. Bad thing was if you wanted to go up yo Heavenly,you had to use the gondolas in town. Stagecoach gondolas weren't working. It looks like a great place to go for hikes or long walks during the warmer months. There is really No view, but extremely quite. The kitchen was fully equipped & they even left a gift of candy & snack basket on the table, the kitchen had stuff to cook a turkey & to bake cookies.As long as you bring breakfast stuff, to get your day started, you will be fine, then do play the rest by ear. There is a liquor store a short walk down if absolutely need something. Other than that, town has markets. If you want a really nice meal with Amazing Views, you have to try the Chart House!!! Little on more pricey side, but great! Pam prints out a schedule of the week you are staying there & leaves it with the info folder & it tells you whats going on in town. For me, personally, because i have a 2 yr old, the heaters that heat the room are very low on the wall & can put off a lot of heat. Kinda made me nervous. Also pam put a baby gate in the condo, if we needed it. I think the place is great if you are not a person that needs the Casino feel 247. I think for Cooler/Winter months are perfect to stay here And would go back in a heart beat. I didn't ask, but I wonder if food places deliver to the condo,cuz that would make the place!

Great time share piece at a great price. My issue is with the lady who runs the front dest. Multiple times she would just walk right into our room without permission when she wanted to talk to us. One time she just sat down at the dinning table to have a conversation. You can tell she makes an effort to be nice but is a mean person. Her tone of voice, attitude, and frustrated responses to questions is unacceptable for someone in the service industry.

Although the room was clean & comfortable with instant hot water, wi-fi, a full kitchen and plenty of hangers--the light over the bed had the pull missing, so it didn't work. I was told, "There should be ample light," ( from the bedstand table lamps). Our bedroom was at street level (no stairs) with construction equipment going by from 6 to 6. The outside balcony (with 2 plastic chairs) overlooked a storage parking lot, maintenance yard, gravel & green waste dump below with activity from 8-6. No pretty view for sure. Besides the light, the clothes dryer, located in a bedroom closet, squealed so loudly it could be heard outside the front door! The jacuzzi tub was for looks only; take a shower. The pool & hot tub are part of the Summit Village community, more than 1/2 mile walk each way or nearly 2 miles if you drive due to a one-way street. There is no pleasant area to sit outdoors to enjoy a view (street, parking lot or other condos is what you'd see). We stayed our booked week and spent most of our time hiking in state parks or national forests. Office is closed Saturday & Sunday. Nothing to do at the 'resort.' Haul your own trash to the bear-proof dumpster when you leave._

Room Tip: I don't think there would be any room with a good view. The area is so built up with resorts &a...

We are members of the Royal Aloha timeshare and stayed at Lake Tahoe over New Years Eve. We booked a two bedroom but got put in a 3 bedroom. One queen bed in a loft, another room had one queen bed and a third bedroom had two twins. It was great. Two bathrooms with towels and kitchen area with everything you need. Timeshare was in good condition, had fireplace that turns on when heat goes down below 70 degrees and offers nice winter living area. You could rent games other sleds through the office but we had no need. Parking is right outside the condo and only negative is to get to the condo, the area around Stagecoach at Heavenly is a one way and you have to go all around the entire area to get to the condo. It is about 15 minute drive down from the condo to the main road. At night it can be slick so you just need to be careful. We were lucky no snow while we were there. Overall great option.

Room Tip: Try to ask for two bedroom - give you more space.

Hi - we just have spent a week in a one bedroom condo at Royal Aloha Vacation in Heavenly Village up Kingsbury Ridge off Hwy 207. The condo doesn't have airconditioning but the bedroom has two ceiling fans. Recommend keeping the windows open in the summer and the doors inside open too to get a breeze. The living room could use a ceiling fan too but doesn't have it, unfortunately. Lots cooler up here than in TX! The condo was very nice - nothing broken and all in good shape. The manager, Pam was very friendly and helpful. They hosted a breakfast one morning for the guests and owners and a little taco dinner one evening too. Met alot of folks at the dinner that were staying here. Their pool is a community pool up the hill - driving necessary but was totally fine. I would recommend that you call Pam if you are arriving past 5. I had emailed her a week before as we didn't arrive until 10 pm but she was totally surprised and had not gotten my email, but once she got her composure - she was very welcoming. There was a $30 surcharge for electricity. She gave us lots of things to look out to plan our week in Tahoe. She made some great recommendations too. This was a thoroughly comfortable well kept up property. We had a great week.

One more thing - the kitchen had basic things in it to cook - a nice thing was there was a little bag of sweet and lo left in the kitchen and a small salt and pepper. We had breakfast in each morning but ate out the rest of the time. Not sure if there is a grill on property anywhere - certainly not something near the condos.

The manager has lots of dvds and books and even ice chests to use. You might ask her if you need something special. There is a Safeway and a Radleys grocery not far from the condo down on Hwy 50. One past the casinos and one down away from the casinos from your turn to the main road.

We had a car for the week and got around the entire shoreline. It takes about 1.5 hours to get to Homewood and about 1 hour to get to Incline going around the East side. More like 2 hours if you go around the west side of the lake. Loved it all.

This was our 2nd trip to Lake Tahoe, in as many years. We flew out of Baltimore arrived late, due to cancelled flights because of the recent ice-storms. I called the resident manager, Randy, and let him know that we would be arriving very late. He thanked me for letting him know and told me that he would leave a key in an envelope, in a drop box next to the office, (in unit 317D). We arrived, very late, (2:30 am), and the envelope with our name on it was in the drop box, with a nice little note that told us to relax and check in at our convenience.

We had not read any recent reviews and were very pleasantly surprised when we opened the door, and found that we had been upgraded to a 2-BR unit. (Unit 339E). It was beautiful and appeared to have been either brand new, or recently renovated. (we found out later, that it was just renovated and we were the second guests who had stayed there....the entire resort has been undergoing renovations) The floors were carpet, with faux hardwood floors in the bathroom and kitchen.

The living room/dining area was quite spacious. It has a beautiful gas fireplace, (decorated w/stone and a pretty hearth). The dining room table was ample, w/6 chairs, placemats and coasters. The living room had a sleep sofa, (not needed as there were only 2 of us), and a comfy chair. The kitchen was brand new, with a flat-top range, and complet sets of heavy duty flatware and dishes. There were also ample pots & pans, but one more non-stick pan would've been helpful. There were plenty of casserole dishes, glass bowls w/plastic lids, and two sets of decent cutlery. There were also 3 sizes of cookie sheets, a big 4-slice toaster,(big enough for bagels), and a commercial-quality blender. The appliances were brand-spanking new. No ice-maker in the fridge though.

We slept in, and checked in the next day. There is a $20.00 per week surcharge for electricity(?). Check-in was a breeze and flawless. I just showed our RCI certificate, and paid the $20.00. The gentlemen who checked us in, was very informative. We were there to snowboard, & ski, and he had lot's of great information about the different ski runs at Heavenly.

The resort is at a high elevation, (~7,400' ?), at the top of the Kingsbury Grade. Basically, it's ~4 miles from the center of Heavenly Village in South Lake Tahoe. It's very convenient to the Stagecoach & Boulder lodges at Ski Heavenly. It's an easy 5-minute walk to the Stagecoach lodge and there is a shuttle that constantly runs between the Stagecoach & Boulder lodges, (5-minute ride). (Be aware, rookies, that there is only one beginner run on the Nevada side at Ski Heavenly). If you have a beginner in your party, hop on the shuttle to Boulder lodge.

Getting around was real easy. We skipped renting a car this time, and chose the South Tahoe Express, from the Reno Airport. It's ~ $80.00 per couple for a round-trip and it has 11 daily departures from the Reno Int'l Airport, and stops at all of the casinos. We were dropped off at the Lakeside Inn Casino where we caught a cab to the resort for ~ $20.00. Once there, there were plenty of options for getting around. (i.e. BlueGo shuttle $5.00 pp to town...or the Heavenly shuttles FREE if you caught 'em before 5:30pm!) The Heavenly shuttles were great...just stand in front of your condo and wave 'em down.

Bottom line? Though it's not a 5-star star resort by any means, it's very well appointed, convenient to the slopes and I can highly recommend it.
