    I was very pleased with the quality with the room for the price we paid. the location was very convenient for everything we wanted. I am handicapped and use a scooter, the staff made a special effort to make sure to accommodate my special needs.

    Dog friendly and location

    Front desk was not informative about how billing works. Tht i already paid for room when online booked. Then they charged more on m.y card than i signed for. They put a hold on a certain dollar amount that they did not tell us about.

    VERY close to Heavenly lift Very cheap Friendly staff

    The location, several blocks fom the beach and only one block from heavenly village.

    I was very disappointed in the customer service of the staff. The guy at the front desk was having a difficult time multi-tasking between answering the phones and helping the hotel guests. When I asked him about the private beach access he failed to tell me about the required pass to get in. We walked down to the beach and then had to walk back to get the pass. When I asked him why he didn't tell me about the pass he stated that he didn't know I was going to the beach even though I specifically asked him about it 30 minutes beforehand. The beds were rockhard and the rooms are in serious need of some remodeling. The entire block is surrounded by rundown motels, I have no idea why the other customer reviews rated this place so high.

  • Couple

    Friendly staff and real value for what I got out of my stay. The place was clean, comfortable, and offered a great breakfast.

    Excellent access to Lake Tahoe, the Casinos, and Heavenly Village. It was a nice and warm place to stay that provides cookies, cough drops, toothpaste, a continental breakfast, and a nice place to eat.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Nice room, close to the ski resort.

    The free breakfast used to be better. It should have more food options, some bagels, maybe something hot.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    The room was nice, well equipped and clean. Good value.

    The first person at the desk was 'friendly/smiley' but not really helpful. But this may be normal, we met a few people like this on this trip! can be quite annoying though. The next guy was nice when we were finally able to check in. It was rather hot and ventilation was poor in the room. The AC was quite loud too, you could barely hear anything else. The room was on the road with the window and door right on the corridor so felt vulnerable to open the window and blinds to let air in.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    The location.

    Our room was above the front office and we felt the vibration from the door closing. You can also hear next door's peoplconversing.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    Really nice rooms, comfy beds and lots of space! Great breakfast, the location is great,just infront of the cable car. The area where the Hotel is located, is pretty quiet and not far from the lakeside.

  • Single
    10.0

    Friendly and efficient staff. The room had all the amenities and more for such a quaint hotel. Their beds were very comfortable. Being able to walk to and utilize the private beach was splendid.

    I would have liked to open my window but there was no screen and privacy was an issue as people walking to the office pass by. Because the walkway ran in front of the room the lights made it difficult to fall asleep.

  • Couple
    9.2

    1. The room was cheap! Just your average hotel room, nothing out of the ordinary (good or bad). Staff were helpful when we asked questions.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Modest and unpretentious. Very comfortable and perfectly cleaned daily. Well located for skiers.

  • Couple
    10.0

    Great accommodations for the price. Wonderful location, near everything from casinos to shopping. Staff was very nice and rooms were clean and comfortable.

    The parking was the weakest feature. We had to park way in the back behind the main hotel on Sunday night. Weather was nice so it wasn't a huge problem.

  • Older travelers
    3.8

    Beds were OK.

    Extremely noisy on first floor; when people walked on second floor everything in our room rattled. The room smelled funny and looked like it needed very very serious overhaul. Way too expensive for what was offered.
