The bad: Hotel was older, room was very small. Bathroom was slightly dirty and in desperate need of updating. The food in the restaurant was pretty poor, tasted like it was all reheated frozen food. The rooms facing the lake may or may not be nicer but we were not able to book those because we had our dog with...

Great home like feel. Very nice people. The bar and restaurant are small and cozy but very clean and nice. Food was great. We ordered Crab Cake Benedict and a Breakfast Burrito which were delicious. If you stay more than a night or forget items, you are very close to the touristy town of South Lake Tahoe which has many...

I stayed here while attending a workshop in the conference center and I was so impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. I especially remember Maura who greeted two weary travelers with a a great view room and turned around our whole day. The restaurant was good, quick service, reasonably priced. Comfortable bed. The only problem was getting...

If you want to drink champagne in a hot tub while it's snowing, then relax by the fire in your room... or watch the snow falling from your balcony while drinking warm coffee made in your room. Then this is the spot!! Very friendly staff, great food, great bar and super affirdable... We will be back!

The service at this hotel was phenomenal. They offered military discount, recommendations of where to go and what to see in the local area, and they also offered food vouchers redeemable at the hotel restaurant for each day you turned down housekeeping, which was their initiative to save water during California's harsh drought. The rooms are nice and cozy, parking...

The service was great and the lodge was quiet, peaceful and relaxing with great views. You can't beat the location if you want to be close to the water. We enjoyed being away from the casinos and cigarette smoke. Will definitely stay there again.

It's unfortunate that our stay was so uncomfortable this time because we've stayed here before and it was great. Our heater was so loud that it kept me up all night. I finally turned the heat off at 1 AM and this was November! When I told the staff in the morning they didn't seem to care. Sad.

Spent two nights here. Bed was very comfortable with nice weight comforter for cover. Room has gas fireplace for heat which was so nice. Also has electric wall unit for heat/ac, but we enjoyed the fireplace. Room was spacious with table and chairs to sit in and enjoy in room coffee. Restaurant on site. Will come back.
