Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

Beach Retreat & Lodge is an older style resort with a great location and nice layout but small rooms needing a facelift. It was clean and had nice amenities on the grounds and a nice beach. Great sunsets from their beach and some rooms have nice views and the price was very reasonable.

My husband and I had an uncomfortable stay back in November. Our room was so loud due to the heater that I couldn't sleep. The management team at Beach Retreat & Lodge got in touch with us and worked with us to resolve the issue. We have stayed here many times and even though we had a bad experience the...

Blanca checked me in and noticed I wasn't in the system. I had screwed up the reservation. She called her supervisor and worked out the issue to fix my error and gave me an upgrade on my room with a lake view. Awesome service that you really see...I will definitely will be back.

Such a great get away! Took the train from Oakland to Truckee, then Uber (about an hour) to hotel. Check is was smooth, friendly staff and nice grounds. The location cannot be beat! Just far enough from the Casinos and Town where you can enjoy the serenity that Tahoe has to offer. Special kudos to the grounds staff - always...

It's a beautiful hotel right on the south shore of Lake Tahoe. Nice room with a good view. I especially liked the in-room (gas-burning) fireplace. But their so-called "in-room wi-fi" was totally dysfunctional. And the dining room service was as poor as I've ever seen in such a venue.

Great place to stay. Great snowy view of the lake and fireplace to keep us warm. Hotel was quiet. Can't wait to come back with the kids when it's warmer and enjoy days by the lake and a picnic. Food in restaurant not as good as we had hoped.

Location 5*. This beach front lodge has spectacular views of the lake, and is close to Heavenly Village. A convenient Safeway is directly across the street. There is a long pier extending into the lake which was closed until May. The outdoor pool was closed. The outdoor hot tub was warm, and coin laundry was right next to the pool....

“If you are a technology user, and most people these days are, you may need a power strip for all of your charging needs, as the room outlets are few and some hard to access. Having night stand outlets or USB connections would be an excellent addition.”
